He didn't play GREAT, true.
But he did end up 2nd in individual points for us, lead us in assists, maybe even scored the most points for us in the second half. His defense wasn't bad.
And you describe his play as awful, which is just not true
But **** Ron.
True, that is nice. We just have so many guys who are bad at playing a team game. Danny sticks out to me lately.
I mean I watch the game and I see him have 6 or 7 plays in a row where he causes turnovers for our team or makes bad defensive plays resulting in a 10 point swing. It drives me nuts. Then, eventually he will hit a contested jumpshot and it's like... We are supposed to cheer?
Foster means so much to this team.
DG for 3
BTW, Vogel is just doing the best he can with the assets available. He's leveraging their talents and that includes giving DC a green light to shoot. ...and to his credit, DC did a good job of that tonight. If he can become a poor man's Monte Ellis...we will be fortunate. Averaging in the neighborhood of 17ppg on 47 or 48% from the floor would be ok for a point who lacks the traditional PG skills.
I think we have to lead the league in traveling violations it's getting to the point to where you can call it before it even happens. It's like our players have an idea of what they want to do with the ball and they get that set in their head that that's what they're going to do, and when that doesn't pan out they kind of studder and take that extra step. There was a point in the game where Danny had the ball and I saw Roy down low and before it even happened I told my friend "Watch, Danny is going to drive into the middle with the intention of faking the shot to try and get Roy the easy bucket but before that happens Roy is going to get covered and it's going to cause Danny to travel." Sure enough, that's exactly what happened. My friend thought I was a witch of some sort, but I had seen that happen so many times I just start to expect it.
Okay, but what if you were starting a team, all the good big guys are gone and you have the next pick and you need a point guard. Do you pick Rondo.
I think I might pick Rose first in the whole NBA, even over Kobe, Durant, and Lebron.
Everything else being the same, if Perkins was still on the Celtics, they beat the pacers tonight and Hibbert's stat line would have been a whole lot different.
I still think that was a stupid decision by Ainge. If they kept perkins the Celtics IMo would have a better record than the Bulls right now and would be the favorites in the east
This team gets up for good opponents and underestimates bad ones??? Hard to figure out. Crucial win. Pacer's next two games are must win.
Perk played in just 12 games for Boston this season and they were at the top of the East all season until just recently. They played just fine without Perk and I have a hard time believing their record would be that much different if he were still there. Their problem more than anything is that it's late March and they are tired of the regular season. Get the playoffs started and they will be completely rejuvenated.
I get that, but they miss Perkins as much on the court as they miss him as a person off the court. Plus he's the best one-on-one low post defender in the NBA and he and garnett were the best interior defenders as a pair in the NBA
Sure the Celtics will play much better when the playoffs start _ but they will miss Perkins
