Amir needed the rest for his feet.


Young has rested all year

I like the start. Kaminsky has made some tough shots. If that's what their offense comes down to, so be it.

I just hope the Celtics don't settle too much for threes. 5 in a quarter is a lot...

Question - where can you find stats comparing Smart's statistics with Rozier on the floor versus not on the floor?

I saw a tweet the other day (I think from Forsberg) that posited that Smart plays much more efficiently and better without Rozier on the floor, primarily due to him being the primary ball handler and point guard in those situations. He backed this up with Smart having a significantly higher true shooting percentage with Rozier off the floor than with him on the floor.

I'd like to see how true that is, because it'd go along with the sentiment that many of us have thought on here for a long time.

See, I thought it was because Smart is far more likely to have to bail Rozier out with a late shot-clock heave when Rozier is the ballhandler and dribbles himself into trouble...

Absolutely love this bench group right now. Smart, Brown, Crowder, JJ, and Al is a really good two-way group with tons of shooting.

Hopefully with a shortened rotation in the playoffs we get much more integrated starter/bench units like this. I think a lot of our problems lately, and over the entire season, have been us relying too heavily on bench units with 0 starters or just 1 starter in.

JJ chipping in huge here.  Been playing much better with him in there instead of KO.

Marcus, JJ, and Brown are all + 14 or better right now, with Marcus and Brown at +17.

Too bad we can't play the Hornets in the playoffs.

Man, now that we have the best lottery odds locked up, it'd be really helpful if the Nets pulled off a win against the Bulls today.
