I wish Horford would step up more in these kinds of games.

Nice to see the young guys and rookies make plays but to win games, we need Horford to also contribute more (especially with like half our team missing and most of our starters)

LOL then he makes that block  :P

Monroe has been a big factor so far.

I'm SO GLAD we go into the playoffs having guys like Baynes and Monroe instead of last year when we had the corpse of Amir, Zeller and Olynyk (who was fantastic in that Game 7 but literally was missing every other playoff game).

Toronto not long; if we penetrate Moose can clean up.

Monroe could get a double-double before halftime  :o

Van Fleet has really good instincts on offense.  We gotta play smart against him.

Moose is having a very good game.

3 straight TO's.  Hurt us last night and it's killing us tonight.

Turnovers are killing us. No point guard is tough!

Toronto does have a really good bench, I'll give them that much.  I'm just not sure it'll matter all that much once the playoffs start.

We've got guys playing right now that shouldn't ever see a minute of action under normal circumstances.

It's getting ugly, but you have to admit, it's impressive how no matter the opponent, the C's are still in games. With the lineups they've been trotting out lately, you'd expect them to be blown out quite a few games...  8)

Well with most teams, their bench is a def step down in talent and production.  With Toronto their bench has been super important to their team.  I don't know why they would make a big change once they hit the  playoffs?  They need to play those guys.
