They aren't even trying on defense and Rozier is leading the charge.

I can't watch the game today but it seems that the team aren't any better than the last few games.

My God, the officiating this year has been atrocious. What an embarrassing display of incompetence.

Please cut Rozier's minutes when MM comes back.  I mean substantially cut them.  He's not shown that he's deserved the playing time he gets.  One good game every 10 games isn't enough - I don't care if you capitalize on a boneheaded play by Bogdonavic to make a game winning dunk.  Zero consistency.

In the Celtics last 10 games, in which they are 5-5, the starters are 7th in the league among other opening units with a net rating of 4.4. The bench meanwhile, is dead last among all other second units with a net rating of -13.3.

Hopefully Morris can come back soon and help shore things up.

Nobody is surprised that we're getting our ass kicked in this quarter.  Might have something to do with these trash lineups Brad continues to roll out to start the 2nd.

Yeah, this flip-flopping with the bench rotations and the staggering of the starters is just baffling.

He went with the Al/Tatum staggering with the main bench group for several games, and it seemingly worked. Why he suddenly changed his mind is beyond me.

Serious question, because I see this comment a lot...is it possible that Brad is in the same mindset as the Warriors, Spurs, Cavs, etc...that essentially the regular season is pointless other  than preparing for the post-season?  Just like he's shifting our team to only three positions...he's only trying to shift the team to a group of players that can succeed in any type of lineup?  So he's using 82 games to refine and determine which players can make that shift and which ones can't?  And if we need to use the DPE or trades to find other players that can do it, we'll glean that info as well.

Don't really know if the strategy will ultimately be good or bad...but other than home court advantage, since we're almost guaranteed to make the playoffs in this conference...isn't this a better use of our regular season than simply trying to have the best record in the Eastern conference?

Rozier is now 2 for 15 in his last 2 and a half games.

Shooting 34% for the month of December, and likely to go down further after this game unless he manages to fluke in a few buckets in the 2nd half.

Tatum's shot is so pure.

Gotta build this lead big enough that even our bench can't blow it.
