I mean, aside from last night's carnage in which I feel the Celtics were having an off-night, the Celtics came close to beating the Cavs on opening night after a nightmare situation happening that pretty much changed the course of the season for the team.

Stop giving them open looks. Celtics were alot slower in closing out, compared to the first two games. Its more of an effort thing than anything. If Cavs still hits tough, contested shots, that's another topic.

You canít start a game that poorly when you are on the road.  The fans get into it and it makes thng so much tougher for the rest of the game .  I was looking at trying to take one in Cleveland and this game had throw away written all over it.  Cleveland a must win and the Celtics riding high and maybe a little to full of themselves.  Hereís hoping game 4 is a battle and the Cís can sneak out a close win, otherwise get ready for this thing to go 7.

It was interesting listening to Brad's post game last night.  He said that he ignores the topic of home vs road with the team.   "In my 11 years as a head coach, I probably haven't talked about road and home five times with our team... If you start talking about that, you find excuses in both places."

At the end of the day it's very difficult to win on the road in the NBA playoffs, especially if you haven't established yourself as a superior NBA team.  This young group is basically learning on the fly with little margin for error.  At the end of the day the Celtics rely on 110% effort and execution for 48 minutes.

I also got the vibe that Cleveland was running some sets that the team wasn't necessarily prepared for.  Brad didn't outright say it but it sounds like he feels the need to tinker with lineups/rotations.

Yeah, hate to say it but the narrative looks true now.

We look like a completely different team on the road. Scary Terry ain't scary on the road, and they held Horford in check pretty well too.

Brown needs to be on the list. He has to shut his mouth as well. He keeps saying the team and him are going to bring it on the road and he was garbage most the night.
