3) Everyone is saying this but it's true -- they don't need to switch every screen. Some of those are pretty weak-ass screens, anyway. Especially with Rozier.
Fair enough.

So what's the plan against Hill/JR/Green/Love/Hood(if he plays)? We go under or we fight through the screen?

If we go under, they 'll just shoot the open jumper.
If we fight through, they 'll put the ball on the floor and take it to the basket.

According to CBS ''the numbers say that we have been more effective while switching than not switching''. I mean, can you argue with that? I'd love to see those numbers for myself, but at the end of the day I trust CBS.

Hit shots they hit in the first two games and missed in the second two games.

Don't overreact to other trends.

Stop starting the games slow and digging a double digit hole. That would be nice.

yep. these two adjustments will do it. okay, mods can lock this thread now.  ;D

 Celtics missed 15 dunks/layups during Game 4.

Maybe more painful: The Cavaliers turned those misses into 15 points (4-of-8 shooting, 7 free throws), per @ESPNStatsInfo

Jaylen Brown: "Just going too fast, too excited. Just need to slow down."

That is the reason we lost. As I said in an earlier post, we lost that game more than the Cavs won it.

One good thing that came out of Game 4 is, we held Cleveland to just 43 points in the 2nd half. The bad first half unfortunately just did us in. Have to start Game 5 much better or Cavs in 6.

Not a game 5, but a game 6 adjustment. I would start Marcus Smart when the game goes back to Cleveland, and have Rozier come off the bench. Terry seems to play differently on the road, so maybe this would help him ease into the game.
