Er, flagrant fouls rather.

Pierce: "I called game."

There's a certain type of team the Celtics don't match-up well against...this team isn't it.

Nice to look good for a half.

Yeah, can't blame Clifford. Those were two bad calls. Just another reason why we need coach challenges.

It'd be a good thing for officiating accuracy obviously, but it'd also slow the game down even more.  I die a little inside every time the officials review a common foul for technical fouls just because there's a lot of contact.  Just play on.

I think they're being experimented with in the D-League.

But a good idea would be to attach it to a timeout, so that the refs can look at it during the timeout. You'd also have to be pretty sure about it, because otherwise you'd waste one of your timeouts with it. I think that could make it practical to implement.

They don't go for offensive rebounds. They have the Doc Rivers get back philosophy. 

If they only knew they could have as many as they wanted. Just ask Cleveland.

But what about plays where it's unclear who knocked the ball out of bounds, and then a team scores a basket on the wrong call?  Do you wipe out the basket?  I think there will be situations where only an immediate review of the play (and thus stoppage) would suffice.

Or maybe the NBA should just get better officials.  I think that'd be the best solution.

Brooklyn with the chance to tie! This would be a good win for us, because it'd essentially make it certain that Milwaukee doesn't fall to 7th, which is great news for us, not that Chicago is all that much better of a matchup.

I would rather see Raptors or Cavs than Bucks with Middleton back.

Are we better with KO starting over Amir or are we just playing really well against a team not currently in the top 8? Does KO do better (for the team and himself) starting?


Shooting like 60+ % right now too,
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

We might be, but this is just a hot shooting night against a non-playoff team
I'm bitter.

I still hold that a stretch 4 like KO/JJ would be a better fit  in the starting lineup than Amir. Offensively, it creates much more spacing and shooting for IT to penetrate and kick to, and I think it makes us a bit more defensively versatile, though probably a bit less good overall defensively with a lesser presence on the boards and on interior defense without Amir.

I do think it is better overall for our team, though, but with it being this late in the season there's no point to change to it now.

Bradley is a great defender, but he's having trouble with Batum.  Too small.  It's the same reason I'd like to avoid Toronto if possible (if we get out of the 1st round).

DeRozan is way too big for Bradley, and IT can't guard Lowry.   Although if we run into Washington, Wall and Beal obviously ain't a picnic either.
