It is obvious this team has gotten by on smoke and mirrors. They have regressed. 27 games left in the season...and no other scoring but Kyrie.

They will win one series and then lose second round to Cleveland. Just don't have enough

Just watched game after it was done and am beyond sick at what I saw. Zero heart and we are clearly far behind the Cavs in terms of fire power and when Lebron is on, and motivated, we are in trouble. I would say without Hayward, we stand no chance at beating this team in a best of 7 this year. Zero chance....

So much for it taking time to gel with new players. It shows you how cancerous the players they traded away were viewed by the current players. It looks like the remaining Cavs players were released from a hunger strike and a year in prison today vs us the day we honored Pierce. Pathetic...

Please get rid of Nader

Because Nader is our biggest problem at this point?  smh

Lol him and poor Greg Monroe. Third game with the team and he's the reason this team jacks 38 3s and can't even break 100. Horrific..

The rate this team shoots 3s is just crazy. 30 plus a game...seems that is their whole offense. Stand around and chuck 3s

Monroe should start. Get him in the flow and at least he can rebound and can score inside. Baynes is awful as is Semi. Wasted minutes on those 2

League average is 28 per game and that was where we were earlier in the season. Now we're doing nothing but chuck threes like were Houston East only without their personnel or coaching. Combine that with second fewest points in the paint and it's clear were a lost team on offense.

Team has no identity. Run the offense through Horford and Monroe next game. Cant be any worse than this garbage..

It's honestly embarrassing seeing this team jack up so many 3s, especially when it's early in the shot clock.

It would be one thing if they were left WIDE open to shoot it, but many times I see they are guarded by a defender with a hand up in the air, and still jack it up (Morris did it a few times in the 1st quarter noticeably, and I think he made 1 but then missed 2 while CLE gained momentum).

Also, this whole "getting behind by 20+ and then showing up" mantra is starting to get annoying too. They looked horrendous in the 3rd quarter while falling behind by 25. THEN they decide, "okay, let's chip away at this, play with energy on both ends, and quit jacking up 3s", and they cut the lead to like 17 quickly.

BUT of course, against elite teams like CLE, you won't often come back from deficits like that. You can against mediocre teams like the C's have many times this season, but against Toronto, or Cleveland, or Washington/Indiana/Miami, it isn't going to happen.

How many times did LeBron drive to the middle and throw a baseball pass to the 3pt line where his teammate is standing all alone? How many times does this happen before you start playing the passing lane?

Absolute disaster. I think they are what we thought they would be right after the Hayward injury. A top tier playoff team in the East that still can't beat LeBron. Personally if we end up facing the sixers in the first round I think we will lose. If we face Milwaukee , Indiana, Detroit or Miami I think we win in 7 but we lose in 5 or less to the next team we face.


Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost

The C's offense sucks. That's all there is to say about it. It doesn't matter if you have wide open threes if you don't have any consistent shooters to make them. They don't bother to go the basket so yeah.
