Anyone still want to trade Marcus Smart?

If you think Marcus Smart will help this team's rotation in the paint... well, you'll probably be disappointed.

Because he haven't proven he can't shut down all-star bigs like Gasol, Davis, Milsap and Cousins, right? He's the de facto team captain on the defensive end. He tells his team mates where to position themselves and immediately rotates to help if he sees it fits. May still have beaten by the Cavs, but the margin wouldn't be so big

Micah Shrewberry and Walter can stay. The rest needs to go.

Its not about effort more than it is about the coaching, preparation, rotation

Basically CBS should bear most of the blame for the 2nd part of the season meltdown

teams know how to guard this team.... all they do is chuck up 3s.  If you can execute a semi zone kind of D, Celtics offense can be contained...especially when the team can't hit a bucket from the outside

On defense the team is running around instead of identifying which players to lay off (non 3 pt shooters), not having Brown guard Lebron? ....falling for Lebrons mind games (drive and kick)


CBS after 3 years now still can't figure out Lebron....he is basically Lebrons beetch

As much as I blame CBS for the teams recent struggles....Danny also deserves blame

Just so cheap. Doesn't want to pony up picks (cavs gave up their 2017 #1) and brings in slow , non effective players like Monroe bc he doesn't have to give up anything

Definitely should be ashamed of that... All-star break can't come soon enough.

There is one change that I love though and that's putting Morris into the starting lineup... not because he's more skilled than Tatum, but because on the first unit he has to play more measured and respect the other talent on the floor.

Tatum on the second unit with Smart and Rozier's slashing, Munroe in the post and Tatum picking his spots to move in for the kill will pay much longer term dividends beyond losing a single game. I wish Tatum would play with a bit more nasty to his game and get downright disrespectful to his defenders... this kid's got everything except the killer instinct... that's the biggest separator between him and other rookies like Dennis Smith JR and Donovan Mitchell

Stevens needs to start catching some heat. His rotations are horrible and he sticks with horrible players like Semi and Baynes. LOL at our "offense". Jack 38 3s and can't even break 100 FFS

I'm not sure what to make of this team anymore. To play like that in front of all those Celtics greats is pathetic. The Cavs haven't even played together and they ran us off the court.

I've said for years Stevens needs better assistants.
Stevens rotations are bewildering
When is Tatum going to get plays run through him
Ainge has to make a move...got torched by Toronto and the Cavs...not good.
Irving has to be a better leader, not just in scoring.
I think the team has hit a wall.

Frankly, I think they needed that kind loss. Learn from this, realize that the flaws exist, and maybe change up how you go about some of the things (like creating offensive plays inside instead of jacking up 3s, etc.).

It's just unfortunate this loss happened on Paul Pierce's day, and in front of all those Celtic greats...  :(

They just had this kind of loss on Tuesday vs the Raptors and then again Friday getting down 26. This team has no pride and it is embarrassing.
