This game shouldn't have been close. No Love...sorry guys he coached to protect Irving and Hayward. He didn't coach to win.

You'll really believe this Cavs team is better than us?

Explain

HE CAN'T TAKE THE SHOTS FOR THEM AND COACH THEM!

But he can pull guys when they shoot us out of the game, right? Isn't that part of the coach's job?

Or how about this - instill some discipline in your guys so that they don't effing shoot us out of games like that.

I don't get it. How can the coach not be getting heat when he's letting 1 or 2 guys shoot you out of the game?

I have a hard time thinking Red, pop, or Jackson would allow this to happen.

The loss isn't on Stevens.  That is a really hot take that doesn't have a bit of merit to the argument.  Our guys just didn't make shots down the stretch that was the difference. 

We had a 1 point lead in the 4th quarter after Tatum's 3, and after that we just couldn't score.  We had numerous wide open 3 point looks, we had drives to the bucket.  It isn't the coaches fault when we are just wiffing at wide open 3s.

Plus we had a 7 man rotation.  Who is going to come in for Rozier / Brown?  You can't bench both of those guys, we don't have 2 reliable guys to take their place.

We can't give a pass now. This team was 10-0 at home and the other team didn't have their 2nd best player. If anyone thinks the Cavs are better than the Celtics is crazy. You HAVE to win this game...even if you get swept in Finals.

Why is Tatum always 3rd or 4th on FGAs? The guy can handle the load. At some point Steven's needed to tell them get the ball to Tatum.

Terry and brown were both horrible. We missed endless open looks.

This one is on the players..

Yeah, Stevens totally threw the game so that Kyrie and Gordie don't have to deal with Ewing Theory chatterings in the offseason  ::)

Yes Coach called for the team to shoot 18% from 3.

my only complaing with stevens is not calling timeout when the cavs went on that 8-0 run. He instead let them play and self-destruct.

Thank you...what are people watching? They have Steven's a pass when they made the ECF.

Tatum should've had that ball down the stretch. Why wasn't Rozier in earlier.

Steven's can you win the big one when it counts...[dang it]! This was easy and we lost to these scrubs.

Not his fault rozier went 0-8 with a very dumb dunk attempt on James

Brown was terrible as well

How was Smart? 1-10?
This is all about money laundering.

I think Stevens protected Irving and Hayward in this game.

Did this weird statement ever get explained ?

Should've put in Nader. That was the key ::)

As far as instilling discipline, those Rozier pull up 3's drives him as crazy as it does all of us. Smart's shot selection has been garbage since he played at OK State. He's a coach, not a miracle worker. He draws up the gameplan, the players have to execute.

If just one of 3 things happen: 1.) Terry Rozier gives us a mediocre game instead of a terrible one   2.) Jaylen Brown shows up   3.) Al Horford doesn't' disappear after one quarter   we win this game.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Who should he have put in? Smart also had a terrible game. Should they have gone with no point guard? They literally only had 7 players that were worth putting in the game. Rozier and Smart were awful. Brown and Morris were poor. Al was solid in the first half, but didn't do much in the second. Baynes was OK, but he's not a scorer. Tatum was terrific, but he's the only one who had a really good game. Was Stevens supposed to put Semi or Monroe in? The Celts had lots of open looks and just didn't knock them down. It's not on the coach.

There as absolutely nothing the coach could have to change the result tonight.  It wasn't because he played the wrong guys or made the wrong subs or had the wrong strategy. He put them in a position to win - the players couldn't make enough shots.

Uhhhhhhhh, literally pulling Rozier in the third and putting Smart in rather than letting Rozier shoot us out of the game on 3-4 straight possessions literally might've won the game for us. That was the run that got them the lead in the first place.

I don't understand the leeway this guy gets around here when he clearly makes bad decisions that another coach like Ty Lue would get RIPPED apart for.
