you tell me. what makes a coach a good coach? specifically a championship level coach.


What do YOU think makes a championship level coach. What qualities do YOU think they should have, Air Gordon?

i agree with this 100%. i actually said (even though i hated saying it) at the time of his injury that this is simply the best possible time for an injury like this to happen. we are not winning it this year even with hayward so him going down only gives more time for our young guys to gain experience. the celtics are set up for future years and if guys like brown continue to improve at such a rate we will be damn hard to stop. gonna be damn hard to keep them all also

Dallas is going to end the streak tonight


We were up by 15, and Smart kept jacking shots up, literally 1-9 from three. He is playing putrid basketball. If there's one knock I have on Stevens, it's him allowing Smart to be the offensive go to with the second unit. Smart literally shoots an average about 2 for 10 every game, this game it was our undoing. Marcus, stick to what you are good at, STOP SHOOTING SO MUCH.

Offensively, the Mavs are just continually going to mismatches (like Tatum guarding Dirk, and Barnes being guarded by Irving).

As I type this, Smart fouled JJ on a three.

I'll be shocked if we win this one.

KYRIE FUCKING IRVING!!!

16/22 from the floor, 5-7 threes, 47 points. Jayson Tatum was also really clutch on the boards in OT, and scoring in the 4th.

We didn't deserve this one, but damn what a finish.

Every streak has its close calls and lucky breaks until it finally ends. As it stands, the run continues. Looking at the schedule, they've got a good chance of tacking on a couple more. If not, sixteen in a row is still impressive, and they're a team to watch.

Nice work by Miami to end the streak. Waiters is so good when he's on, Dragic solid per usual.

Tatum with the good performance, but us getting down every game by double digits and winning couldn't be sustained.

Let's see how we deal with our next game after a loss.

I mentioned the streak, so as always, I take full responsibility for it ending. If it's any consolation, I've jinxed the Bulls far more often in recent years.

I continually (On here and on Facebook) talked about how bad I wanted the Celtics to go after Drummond in the offseason, rumors were swirling at one point. Last night is why.

And his improved free throw shooting is just the icing on the cake. He is in his 5th year in the league, only 24. A stud defensively, a stud on the boards, moves in the post, and can run the floor very very well. We had no answer for him last night.

Tobias Harris was awesome, we couldn't seem to match his energy. He was all over the floor, he was so confident with his shot.

The Pistons are well coached, I feel like they may be the best coached team at this point that the Celtics have played. They went to mismatches at every chance, they were running constant screens for Bradley and Harris to curl, defensively they had the right people on the right guys at all times. They look motivated and well balanced. If they can stay the course, they could be really dangerous in the post season. I certainly wouldn't want to face them in the playoffs.

Celtics played some solid defense in this one, but the Pistons when they are rolling are really tough to stop. Celtics also had some questionable shots down the stretch, and we were almost bailed out by Smart's three's (Yes, Smarts three's).
