Listen: Boston, Marcus, Indiana discussed on The Lowe Post
"So bonus on the right about this a little bit for tomorrow. He's terrific and underrated. And I think you value him alive. Does I think he could score in a lot of different ways for for Indiana against Boston against pretty much? Anyone they have the they've got to do it. They've got a teacher him, and they don't if they don't find a match up that could work for them. At doesn't have to be the player has to be the action and the player been they really don't have a full chrome to kinda wheel around. You know, they've gotta have that one thing that that seems to work for them and caused Boston's problems where they start scrambling around. I think the bonus is the answer to that. But here's Ron looking at with Boston. You you've mentioned mindset a few times you so let's. Your boston. And you just lost your energy, your, glued, your, heart and soul. Not just your best defender. But you're you're the biggest will Horford probably the most valuable player car their best player. But out question smart has been you know, this very well being up there. He's just got something that that really factors in and not having him for two series, which let they're saying now, and they know better than we do. I don't know how much they believe they can get through the next two rounds. And that is where I I worry Zack is to me belief is is the most important thing. Right. As I said and Shawshank hope if such an important thing, I don't know how much they hope last year they rallied up, and it was incredible. But it was a it was a different thing this year with the struggle. They've had to suddenly lose smart. I just don't know if they believe they're gonna get through Indiana. Yes, Milwaukee, I'm not sure. And they remember this Indiana treats every possession like it's a boxing match, especially defensively they guard you so. Hard and I still think Boston superior team. But to to go through that slog without Marcus smart, knowing they've got Milwaukee next. I just don't they we're gonna see Boston's a game. Which is why I think this series will be competitive. You know, I love Marcus smart. I had him first team all defense. He shot it. Well from three this year. I everything you just said about hidden him inspiring, his teammates, and and lifting them and have these these plays that you cannot quantify their impact. He makes them if you have Jalen Brown, Jason Tatum. Gordon Hayward playing well and Terry Rozier who can play the two I just think you have enough wing power even against the bucks because we don't know if brogden is going to be able to play this series yet. So I you know, I sort of buying Marcus smart as like a catastrophic loss because I think you can plug Jaylen Brown into the starting lineup. He'll defend Bogdanovich fine. I love book Donna veg what to his restaurant in Croatia. Big fan. He was on my list of like, maybe he deserves some. Consideration for all NBA thirteen four. But not really good player. He is not like if you're game planning a team. And you're like, okay, we're going to spend the bulk of this for talking about boy on Bohdan of that team is not a good office of team. I I don't think, you know, their size and physicality Thad young and Myles Turner. And some bonus like Horford and Baynes there, you know, Seh bonus will have some straight possessions, where he finds Marcus Morris on him and stuff, but I just don't see a lot of sort of easily exploited things. For them on offense and on the other end buses on a great offensive team. But. Darren collison defense worries me in this series against kyri. And if Kyrie gets rolling and they start throwing the ball around getting everyone touches, and everyone starts to feel it. Things can get ugly. So I think they need good point guard defense from Darren collison, they will get it from Cory Joseph, but he's been in a hellacious shooting slump for a long time. Now they will need him to make shots. In Boston scored in in winning throughout a four a hundred eighteen points per one hundred possessions.."
