Listen: Celtics, Pat Beverley And Mantras Herald discussed on Big Time Basketball
"Clippers. Get The win in court and Paul Georgia's first game together their debut together. It was a little little bit. We are a little bit clunky collided and have a great game to star and then just absolutely puts his foot on on the Celtics throat. Late that slam. I mean what was it that was against the US right. I mean the one handed slam that he had you know we talk about the knee things and maybe they're real but I mean he. He just his athleticism his his intelligence around the basket. And you know you were mentioning before the show start. He had a lot of shots that were kind of coming up short coming up shore and he he just keeps shooting and the guy is even if he plays like fifty games this this year. It doesn't even matter you so impressive. That's how good he is. What did you make a Paul George and Colli sort of fit in their first game last night? Why didn't think they were great offensively? I thought Patrick Beverley saved them. In the fourth quarter and the Celtics made a made a conscious effort to give Pat Beverley that shot date. They wanted to do it in more. How would you say where he doesn't have his rhythm that saw the play where Mantras Herald kicked Pat Beverley like on a play like that? Jason Tatum was sort of in. No Man's land. If you remember it. He needs to be up to floor pressuring mantras Herald and then when he makes that pass. It's not a perfect perfect. Clean Pass going to amend but they didn't if you look a lot of times teams X.. Out of the corner and they didn't want to leave quite Leonard on that play so so it it was. The game plan was for the nineteen percent three point shooter to beat them and that's exactly what he did. So I give a lot of credit pat Beverley but offensively. I was not impressed. Arrests by those guys on the first day. I'm sure they're GONNA but defensively I. I've never been more impressed with the NBA team this season than down in the fourth quarter. It was like the Celtics could not find any good shots. They when when I say good shots it means you're moving the the ball and you're going good degrading and guy just tease one up. All those guys can defend everyone at the only thing the celtics could do during the fourth quarter was go Lou Williams and even mantras herald when you go out. Williams in pick and roll or isolation situation mantras heralds in. They're playing too so defensively. I was blown blown away by this team and we thought they were going to be good defensively for their first day back in quite Leonard being gone for those amount of days. This team is going to be fun to watch when they play against the Lakers when they play against some of the big. I can't wait. I can't wait to watch Luca. Danni play against the clippers. I WanNa see if he could physically manhandle in handle quite Leonard in in Paul. George if those guys both play because when you have both those guys on the court where do you attack. Good luck man. Good luck yeah. We knew that this team was. We knew that they had the horses to be an elite defensive team. I the Lakers. Celt there are the Lakers. Clippers are opening night game. Am seems like it was decades ago at this point like"
