If it's one thing that annoys me, it's turnovers and giving up offensive boards. This team is very difficult to beat when they rebound and take care of the ball.

Jayson got taken out of the game mentally. Refs got him in foul trouble and he let his frustration get the better of him. It looked like he was playing to keep his PPG average up instead of playing team ball.

The games when guys aren't hitting 3's, they need to try to get easier shots. Even mid range shots to get themselves going and get a rhythm.

It's been mentioned, but this team without Rob has poor shot blocking. Quality centers get any shot they want against Al. And Grant is too short. Grant played a few minutes at center and the heat got any shot they wanted. When you play small, you have to stop penetration.

100% agree. At first I thought Celtics would be ok with no Timelord until Christmas, but this game kind of opened my eyes
To see this team so stacked with 5 elite perimeter defenders (Tatum, Brown, Smart, White, Brogdon), then to see only an elderly Al and Kornet as your rotational bigs. Damn, shyt is glaring

I wish we could waive Justin Jackson and sign Hassan Whiteside.
