Anyone else pretty much ready for this season/iteration of the Celtics to be over? lol I'm about to that point. This team has been so frustrating all season long. Just a total identity shift from last year, for the worse, too.

The attitude may be worse, but the talent is significantly better...and so is the team.

Atlanta just matches up so much better than us.

Better hope we don't face them first round.
We got a bunch of shorties all teams match better against us.

It doesn't matter who we face if they play this way it'll be another first round loss

We are so deadly when Marcus is on. His confidence goes up and the team just looks nastier

Smart is such an enigma sometimes. It almost gives me a heart attack every time he jacks up a shot.

Nice end to the quarter. Hitting those 3s will open up the floor...

Marcus 2 big 3's!

The fact that two surprise Smart 3's is the only thing from this thing being a 14 point game after one quarter is sad.

Our offense is so terrible without IT anymore. He's pretty much going to have to play 45 minutes a game in the playoffs for us to have any chance.

And I have no idea what the hell is wrong with our D. It has just been uncharacteristically terrible all season long, and that should NOT be the case since we only got better defenders in the starting rotation. Just no will or defensive intensity there by our guys. They're freaking entitled.

But I don't want to lose in the 1st round again.

CBS has to design more plays for brown. the offense does need to diversify a lot more.

Sure, as evidenced by our record, but without that attitude and intensity, we're going to end up with the same result as last year - a first round loss. The upgrade in talent doesn't justify the downgrade in effort, intensity, and attitude.
