Phenomenal. Another fantastic game. We pulled out another loss, got very promising results from Fav and got trade-value-boosting minutes from Wallace, Bass AND Lee. Couldn't have asked for a better result tonight. Very pleased.
I hope the entire season goes like this... hard-fought losses.
Oh of course you're pleased. I mean, you love every single second the Celtics are being losers.
I'm a big-picture kinda guy. I'd rather us win 15 games than win 35. This blog itself acknowledges they have a ceiling of 38 wins. There's no point to that. I want a top 8 pick... preferably top 5. I don't want us to roll over, though.
Meanwhile, I want to see Wallace, Bass and Lee have some productive minutes. Right now they are terrible contracts that no team in their right mind would trade for. I want us to dump those mediocre cap-leeches for expiring contracts... the only way that happens is if they put up enough stats to sucker some team into trading for them.
I also want to see the young guys show improvement.
Tonight was a win/win/win scenario.
#1 - We lost. We made a game of it, though. Check.
#2 - Wallace, Bass and Lee all had solid games. Check.
#3 - Fav looked fantastic. Sully played about as good as he will play in 10 minutes of action. Oly was fine in limited minutes. Check.
Negatives: Bradley was sorta meh. No stock-increasing minutes for Humph. Green needs to do more if we're going to dump him for anything substantial.
Overall I give this game another A-.
