Well can't keep going down by 16 points and expect to win. Kyrie had 23 points on 22 shots and wasn't very good, shot just wasn't falling. I think we may need todo something about ur back up guard situation. Rozier and Smart provide so little shooting that it kills our second offense. Maybe the adjustment is staying away from the full second units and playing Jaylen, Kyrie or even Tatum with those guys for big minutes. But for that to work Smart has to stop chucking and get it to them. Smart shouldn't be taking even almost as many (or more) shots as Jaylen, Tatum who are both more efficient than him.

Play with fire youll eventually get burned.
They just keep digging themselves a big hole and coming back from 18 points down will eventually wear you down..
Very off night for Kyrie, JB and Al...and dont get me started on Smart because he always has an off night offensively.

Give me Julius Randle over Smart any day of the week. Had a double-double last night. Also posted up 24/7 against Denver the other night. Might have been one of Danny's bad picks in that year...

For as much complaining as there is about Smart/Rozier, they are the ones that really helped spark that comeback with their defense (with Kyrie on the bench). One or both of them need to break out of this atrocious shooting and we will be fine. Defensively, they are totally overwhelming for the opponent.

Yeah the trio of Smart / Rozier / Brown really started to get after it on D during our run.  I just wish would would have seen a bit more of that urgency earlier in the 4th quarter.  We didn't play that intense on def during most of the game though.  Probably a good teaching moment for Brad.

Team desperately needs more scoring.

Hated the Barkley comment, but tonight made me wonder how this team won so many games in a row. Shooting atrocious. Al has really cooled off.

Also feel Brad overcoached this one with too many substitutions.

Despite this amazing streak i still feel it's kind of a fluke and we are behind Cavs,Wizards,Raptors and maybe Bucks in the actuall power standing, this game is a reality check for us

Absolute nonsense. I can see an argument for the Cavs, though I don't buy it, but the other ones are nonsense.

Its almost like we needed another all-star scoring threat that can pass, shoot, drive, and play well within a motion offense.

...

Man I miss Hayward.
Brad Stevens is greater than you think.

Everyone had an off night and we were only down by 1 at one point. I'll take it

I appreciate how they battle.  On an off night they were one freakishly lucky 3 point shot by Waiters from probably winning this game.
