Really irresponsible of the Cs to give Irving the night off - I mentioned in another thread that I was worried about this. They work their butts off for wins against teams like GSW and SAS, but then give a freebie away to the worst team in the league.

There are several players on the Cs tonight than who I am 100% sure I would have played better. I understand that missing Irving disrupts the balance, but who knew that he was also 1st Team All Defense.

December 23 in Boston is a revenge game of sorts. Hopefully we can win by 30.

I was looking at our upcoming schedule to see when our next game against the Bulls was.  I expect an unrelenting beatdown of the Bulls on that date.  Nothing less will suffice.

Also, do not play Nader again.  Ever.  He is not an NBA caliber player.

I am pretty sure the only reason he is on the roster is to prove to agents/future players that if you are drafted by the Cs and asked to play in the D-League that your hard work can pay off. This theory goes out the window when he actually plays, but, man, he really is about the worst player in the league.

News flash:  when nobody on the team plays well, they lose.

**** happens.  I'm not going to jump to conclusions about Kyrie's injury or taking this team lightly or whatever.  Put it behind us and on to the next one.

Rockets now have the best record in the league. So much for having the top record.

  • When my account was born, Mark Blount was our C :(
I feel bad for the Celtics fans at the United Center who wasted their money on this game.

At least it probably wasn’t a lot of money...
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

Kyrie was hurting. Why not give him a night off? The Celtics will win enough regular season games to be a top 4 seed. Health is more important than any single regular season game.

We're getting lit up by a combination of Portis, Mirotic, Grant, and Nwaba.

After a strong defensive performance against Detroit, we come to Chicago and play like this.  We look tired which is understandable, but also uninterested which is not.  Better chew 'em out good Brad.

This was Chicago's fourth game in six nights, though, after coming off of a five games in eight days stretch, so I don't think we can chalk up the loss to being tired, ourselves, imo.

Agreed.  The youth need more reps like tonight, too, if they're going to make necessary contributions in the playoffs.

Just please tell me that Kyrie came to the game tonite and sat with his teammates on the bench ................ as opposed to staying back in his 5-star hotel suite playing NBA 2K.

He should've done the latter.

You know what was different, we actually played tough games and have won a great majority of them. It's not like they have had to fight and claw their way through the season winning and being a top team in the league. I doubt they are tired because it doesn't take effort to win 6 games out of the entire season so far. They just started winning at that, this made three in a row so they basically had 3 wins out of all those games before a few days ago, yeah they really worked themselves to pure exhaustion.  :o

4 of Chicago's last 7 games have been decided by 2 points or less, plus the scheduling that I mentioned, which was tough for both teams.  Does that not factor into the equation at all?  Honestly, I suspect that Boston took Chicago lightly, but should we have lost by 23 points?  No, of course not, but if you underestimate your opponent, you have already lost.

the Bulls (6-20) built an 18-point lead in the second quarter against the Eastern Conference leaders

I told my son when Nader went in, that the Bulls would go on a run.  He is not the reason we lost,   but the guy can't play D at the NBA level.  When I called him "lead-killer" early in the season, I was not far off.  The above run corresponded with Nader and Larkin entering the game.  I almost wish we had signed Gerald Green than made Nader a NBA offer.

Tatum laid an egg could the post on the rookie wall have cursed him?  JK

We were undermanned, the bulls were hot.

It was the Second game of a back to back.

I do think we are  a fragile team though in terms of depth.

We are going to lose some games folks it happens.
