Somewhere out there , Abdel Nader is warming up!
He should, he probably gets 5 minutes or some other short stint.

My guess is once they get to Cleveland series, Brown returns to the starting line up with Smart off the bench as the #2 ball handler

8 man rotation:

Tatum, Horford, Brown, Baynes, Rozier, Smart, Morris and Semi...

Very thin bench...but nobody else really of value on it to help in this stages

I know Monroe hasn't gotten many minutes this series (probably deservedly so and because of bad match ups), but he is a vet and needs to give us something now.  Put him in for 5-6 min each half and slide our wings down a slot to give people a blow.   

Start Brown if he is ready and bring Smart off the bench to alternate with Terry until the end of the game when we go back to our closing lineup.

I think tonight will either be a double digit Cs win or a close Sixers win...don't really see a Sixers blowout or the Cs just getting by.

If you believe the NBA "fixes" games to extend series, etc.., I would think since all the other series are now decided, the NBA might just want to get on with things and have 2 conference finals going on.

The only way I see us preventing the refs from controlling this game is we force em to make calls.. Go inside and pound it. Saric did it in game 4 and was rewarded big time for it.
We must blow them out as well. If its close there is a chance refs make boneheaded calls against us.

Rozier must not be outplayed by TJ whatever and EOG Brown MUST show up.. Man he hasn't been playing himself the last two games.

Nader can bring the ball up in a pinch. They had him playing point in the G league if I'm remembering correctly....

As I said earlier please do NOT play Nader. I would rather play 4 on 5 than bring in that turnover machine. If he plays it's like playing 4 on 6.



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

If the C's have a lead or its even don't be surprised if Brad tries to steal 2 or 3 minutes before a timeout or quarter end with Nader.

Really?

we execute much better than the 6ers and are much better in late game scenarios. If it's real close at the end it's advantage Celtics for sure.
