"He's the bestest ever. Thanks, Mom. He's my favorite host cell that dude forever. So I'm sorry Sam had to be you know, I feel bad because he was there both really sweet, But at least he got, you know a really good shot here. This is the best days I think for him. I agree. Right, Tyler Glass Now, as you mentioned earlier, at his best career outing last night in the Rays victory over the Rangers, he struck out 14 batters for the first time in his career. He also pitched into and registered in out in the eighth inning for the first time in his career, and afterwards he reflected on his night. As my mechanic styling easier, repeated the game one on just felt smoother and smoother. But I think from start to finish today, I felt it was a really good one for me. For sure. Glass now currently has the fourth best odds to win the ale. So young at plus 800 behind Gerrit Cole, Shane Bieber and Lucas Giolito by yourself, Tyler Glass Now is a smart bet for Ailsa young. I'm gonna sell and this is one I'm still in the sack Drinky train. I know it's been a little rickety, but he did throw that 58 mile per hour. I want to write this pitch, even visit. He's such a beautiful weirdo. And I say that to someone who's not a beautiful weirdos. Just a weird I love The uniqueness of how his brain where he's an interesting guy. Speaking of those ale, Cy Young favorites, two of them go at it tonight, It's Bieber versus Giolito and Chicago tonight. The line is even for this one buyer cell. One of those two pictures comes away from this start with the win. One of these two is the winning pitcher I think you buy. I mean, I guess, theoretically, they could obviously do each other to what is effectively a draw in their in their time out there, but I think a 21 on one Nothing of 32 game where these guys go seven or eight innings is within the realm of possibilities. We're still processing Jamal Mary's incredibly unfortunate A. C l tear that seriously alters the Nuggets season. But by how much is the question Buyers? Sellers? Memories injury effectively eliminates Denver's championship hopes. Oh, yeah, absolutely, by now. Is that this earlier? I think, I think The outcome where I'm wrong is because it's not just your being amazing anymore, especially that conference. It's Michael Porter Jr stepping up in plain at that level consistently. I think it's possible. I also think it's really improbable. Going back to something else. You covered last segment, Luca Don church, complaining about the new NBA playoff structure buyers. Still, you're surprised to hear Don trench taken outspoken stance. No, I think that's kind of his personal, so I think you're going to call him in a in a frustrating moment. He's looking down the barrel of The end of the season and realizing there's a real chance we're gonna have to play one or two games just for the right to get potentially smoked. A really good team. And, oh, by the way, you've got the Lakers who we're gonna be lurking in this really, but you could have a planned game against the Lakers. Would not be good ballgame, baby. I mean, maybe not. But I'm pretty sure LeBron, which composes will tremble and hear the Blazers and Celtics were off tonight in a battle of two teams and opposite moods. The Celtics are finally showing signs of life all the Blazers and now lost four of their last six. They sit sixth in the West and head coach Terry Stotts is adamant that there is no slippage happening. I don't necessarily want to concede that were in the phone. You know, we just We had a good game against Detroit. We lost two games on the road against two of the best teams in the West. S o. I wouldn't call the phone Blazers are one point favorites at home tonight. Buyer Cell. Portland gets this win over the Celtics. Man Boston's planes so good right now. I'll buy it just cause cause I'm a fan of the organization. I'm a fan. Of Damian Lillard. But if our putting money down, it might be a different if I actually put in actual money down. It might be a little bit.

"No one hundred percent. It's it's all yokich setting him up. It's all screen and roll actions with murray back screens where he's just able to into the paint and get wide open. Because defenders are petrified of yokich. I mean even just that celtics game that you mentioned like the celtics were just throwing three four bodies that yokich every time inca pass and like that's i think that's how teams are going to have to defend the denver nuggets in the playoffs. So it's going to be up to aaron gordon to really play well of yokich off of the the murray yokich pick and rolls off those with those two and you a duck in when there's a smaller guy on them because the defense is forced to switch and i just i.

The team just imploded. I mean everybody was like what was that. And then all of a sudden there watching zion. five them ingram's into the free throw line twelve times well and their defense just reached a new Wasn't great start the game but after that it just completely opened up because i think the whole team was which has happened and then they were down by thirteen. I swear to be contrarian. Bobby because i was i thought smart was brutal law game however that comeback in large part had to do with putting him on zion And that made a big difference because nobody else was able to keep cy on in front of him. Whatever they tried and then smart got that you know got the offensive. Foul got a couple of things rolling and made it harder for him. We had the work that matchup that that that paid off so he he definitely tone for it a little bit late. But you're right. it was someone else. Tweeted that to after that. Weird half court heave.

I'd like to give report cards. Also what grades? He was the question. What grade? Did you give out the key trades in the MBA? Now there's on. Lee won a plus trade at the deadline. There's only one trade here that rises to the A plus level, and that's the Clippers. The Clippers get an A plus the bulls get I'm I give the Bulls of B. For their trade, the heat and the Celtics. I'm going. See, I'm going to see on that. And I'm gonna be the devil's advocate guy with the Nuggets. I'm not like the mainstream basketball media was not overly impressed with the Nuggets trace.

All right, So my thoughts on this You've got Dr Doritos and dunce cap the three days and we will tie all of these things together in an adequate. Adequate valor monologue. Now a the N betrayed deadline I will concede lived up actually exceeded my very low expectations. One of the great things about being a cynic and a skeptic. When you have low expectations. Occasionally, it doesn't take much to impress you. It doesn't happen very often. So let's enjoy it, and we're gonna roll up our Proverbial sleeves here and and get the worst. We'll start out with the on Lee, a trader today the people's team making the trade with the Atlanta Hawks, and it seemed to the uneducated basketball fan. Like a rather an Oculus deal.

Making Sense Of The Boston Celtics’ Deadline Deals
"There's not that many more other deals fourth really like remarking upon. But i think the thing that will probably be talking about for the weeks after this deadline is the deals that didn't get mayor the teams that didn't do anything so boston got forty a but essentially stood pat. They also treated dale ties for malaga. So how you feeling about your celtics. Celtics in the celtics are currently eighth with. Yeah thank you saw also have like some some Locker room about them. You know Celtics are always interesting. Because you know with the danny never makes a trade you know and they always pup that we have all these assets but you don't ever do anything with them and what you do with them you get kyrie and he bounces right. You do all ever kyrie. You draft pretty well. Because you draft a franchise guy and jason tatum. And maybe a franchise guy or just below franchise guy jalen brown. But i just don't see it man i.

Celtics' Mediocre Defense Allows the Bucks To Spring To Victory
"Doing participation trophies here. I'm confused like like it's it's not it's not a bismal but it's not commendable either. I don't think I mean that's what kind of where we're at is, it was they played I guess at the end of the day it was close enough to win. But I mean they had the, you know Club back from 25 down. Otherwise the Bucks did whatever they want. Nice game long. I mean it was I don't know that there was a lot of positives but you're right the the offensive the turnaround was spurred by little bit more defensive pressure. They did make them a little bit more uncomfortable. And when they started to get into that lead when they got it down into that 12108 range the defense definitely in that spell had turned things up a little bit but I mean on the whole over the course of Forty-Eight minutes, I'd say they play a horrible defense or 36 38 minutes and played pretty good for eight or ten.

"That and this year's then took the opposite of that you bring in Gordon and this is a team that needs help offensively when one of the Jays is on the bench and defensively this year. They are a mess and it's been the same weirdest. I think part of this season for me watching Boston is watching a team that just doesn't have it at all defensively after so many years and so much data of that being a top-tier defensive team year-in year-out dog. By the purse it out near opinion matches is Gordon coming to Boston impact them more on the offensive or defensive. Somebody has the more on the defensive side of the ball. There are certain situations where he's not able to but he's not able to guard one through five. He had troubles last two years in the playoffs was certain matchups, but he is a very good Defender like he is a I would I would definitely put him, you know, percentile up defensively. I do think that offensive lie. It's going to be kind of interesting because the problem with Gordon is his inconsistency and Celtics fans might be frustrated with that that some nights off, you know, he's going to have twenty-three and and 6 and then the next night. He'll have 12:00 and 4 and that kind of variances going to be I think a little bit distressing the fact they should be 40% from 3 is a big step forward. You want to see the consistency going forward think that's an issue. My biggest concern honestly is about mentality. Gordon has never adapted to the role that he would be best at which is essentially a Shawn Marion type of role where he fills in the gaps. He plays defense. He's a passer. He finishes plays when they play off of him when they're forced to because of the gravity of the other players and the floor. He doesn't fill in the gaps. He doesn't bring the room together instead. He kind of wants to be a star he wants to be closer to Kawhi Leonard and I don't think he's really capable of that. And so one question that I would have if I were a boss and is is Aaron Gordon willing to sacrifice with the way the Tatum and brown are top-flight All-Star offensive options, especially the way the jail is I think that gets a little concerning and then you gotta think about Kemba Walker and the best way to use him Kim is not a pure point, you know, he's a good passer. He's a really good passer, but he's not a pure point and he's obviously, you know struggling wage. S physical stuff this season, but he's also going to want to get his touches and this points and so I would have some concerns about what Gordon sees is his role on the Celtics. I think those are conversation of the boss and needs to have before they were to make a deal for Gordon..

"They put out something with regard to that's the beauty of all this stuff. It's like the Celtics if there's if there's a guy a big guy available to Celtics are automatically going to be linked to him. Whether it's Gordon Fournier or obviously box John Collins in Bogdan bogdanovic who Celtics have also long been linked to going back to when he was still with Sacramento and they had put out the report the Celtics might be in pursuit of one or both of those dead. But again, like you just brought up reticent to give up Marcus Smart. So, you know, I tweeted out a little while before we came on. Its I'm just sort of at that point with Celtics fans and I am a Celtics fan wearing, you know, you a segment of Celtics fans saying, you know, Danny Ainge better make a trade and turn this team into a contender but then those same people or different people but still Celtics fans saying but you don't Danny better not trade Tatum or brown or Robert Williams or Marcus Smart or anybody of any remote value, you know, just screaming it from the rooftops in a certain point. You gotta give and I'm not saying You Gotta Give with regard to age brown or Tatum like to me those guys are Untouchable. I don't think most people would disagree with that statement and I have long viewed Marcus Smart as being awfully damn close to that category from what he brings this team. What his contract is the defensive presence the you know dominance on that side of the ball obviously heart and soul de facto Captain so many different things. We've spent a lot of time talking about with regard to Marcus wage. But I put out a poll on Twitter Tides turn man tide has turned people who voted at least into a large sample would rather deal Marcus Smart now than Robert Williams and it all just goes back to you know, my my boss grantier my long winding story of to get something of value. You have to give something up a value or the Celtics at a point where save for pics and obviously the TB they are still off just refusing to give up anything of real value in terms of personnel. I think everyone is trying to deal from a position of strength, right and I don't necessarily think that I think there have been a history and the Celtics have benefited from this of teams giving up too much right like the net steel you want. You never want to be on the end of a lopsided trade where you go all in for something and it doesn't work..

"Should they this is something we we talked a lot about last week with Gary Washburn the fact that it's it's funny how when you talk about the Celtics there's they almost get criticized for being for their level of loyalty, right, you know oftentimes in sports. We we talk now, About the lack of loyalty being a problem. What would the Celtics there's no lack of loyalty from ownership to management to the coaches in terms of obviously, Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens, they're locked up long-term. They're not going anywhere. Neither of these guys has any fear for their jobs and I'm not even saying they should or that, you know, I'm calling for their their heads or anything like that. Although obviously we've explored the idea of just inserting some new voices in there just walk, you know not have Daniel have all the same guys around him that are you know, like-minded, you know, maybe you do need a different voice in a different voice maybe if that can player other than and have in turn around that coaching staff, but I do think I do think I do think you need that. I know Gary said this to you a while back, but I think that's 100% true. I mean when they lost Walter McCarty that was a pretty strong voice someone would get in guys faces in that locker room Evan Turner. I mean Evan Turner is a very, you know, he's a very smart guy and I think could be a good coach, but at this point I haven't turn her still fancies himself a player in a way like he's you know bath Close to being a regular player made a whole bunch of money. I do think you need that voice like that that has to be priority. Number one in the off-season when you're addressing the coaching staff, but in my boss well in my blabbering fashion to Circle back to the main point does it is it a problem that it doesn't seem like as you alluded to there's there is that urgency like does that urgency need not exist to just just does Danny need to be a little more fearful for for his you know, long time rain in Boston not fearful know because you know, he won a championship in the the 2000s be orchestrated the trade of the century in the 2010s and now here we are in 2020 in this decade and I think he's got a lot of on a leash to figure things out. I do think touch on something you said they're they have been way too loyal and way too protective of some of these assets. I mean, we may never know exactly what happened with the dog. Hayward situation but everything I was told was that Indiana was willing to part with some key pieces headlined by Myles Turner who this year is a candidate for defensive player of the year and the gorge Hayward and his family wanted to go and play in Indiana. So I'm of the belief that a deal like that could have been worked out with Celtics overplayed their hands a little bit and that came out to be fatal for this season to to you know, let perfect be the enemy of good like maybe you couldn't get exactly what you wanted. But something is better than nothing especially as you watch this team and you see how how they play without Gordon Hayward of that mix now, they do have the trade exception that could turn into something substantial that 6 months from now, we're talking about them being Geniuses for for making that move but right now how I take Myles Turner I take Doug McDermott both those guys would be playing significant roles for this team..

"Back into another new addition to Celtics beat we are back in maybe just maybe sure the Celtics it was just despaired Doom and Gloom last time we chatted maybe with held from Gary Washburn. We sent things in the right direction four straight wins to take the season to the all-star break. It's where we are now off a couple of days away from that midseason classic in Atlanta plenty to get you there. I'm Adam Kaufman, of course, you know, Evan Valenti our producer and his triumphant returns been a while. We've missed you Chris Mannix. How are you man? God I'm good, man. How're you doing? Good, I'm glad that you were able to put aside your I'm sure very coveted spot in line at Top Shot to do this show. You know, maybe it is a sign of Aging but I can't think of anything more dumb than Top Shot. I just I can't do to be paying actual money for videos that I can just you know, took a look up on YouTube. I claim ownership of them or or whatever it is. I like I was a big Baseball Card Collector back in the day. But but like those were tangible physical things. Yep that I still have somewhere in my parents basement a video clip. I don't I mean maybe I'm wrong but I don't I don't get it. Yeah, it really is amazing. The amount of money that is being said around online for these digital moments, obviously and people that believe this is just the the next wave of of collecting and especially card collecting and the you know, the part number That clearly exists between the NBA and top shots. That's I mean that's a big feather in in people's cap in terms of giving this thing legitimacy, but I'm with you and and again maybe it's an age thing. Maybe it's not because Heavens considerably younger than both of us, but I just as someone who grew up collecting cards, I like to hold cards and read the stats on the back and trade them with buddies and you know, put them in my little holders and sleeves and binders or whatever and and just have them I was never in it's just for the profitability which is that seems to be the wave right here with this thing. People are just looking to put them and make money didn't they do this with like pictures of cats years ago wasn't that a thing like fax number is Pat Trading Card business first. I can't it was like digital clips of cats. It was like, you know, you could buy weird-looking cats of some kind. I don't know like that was another Fab that just fizzled out. And again, maybe I'm wrong but this is kind of one that I don't I just I just can't see it. Yeah, I don't get it either. It's just you have like with the actual physical. Card those eventually run out. Right like the Honus Wagner baseball card the most famous baseball card in existence, right? There are only so many of those left. These clothes live on Forever on YouTube. I mean, what are we talking about here? I just don't I just don't understand it. I mean look, you're going to make money. Good good for you. Congratulations. I got your pride. If you pay actual legitimate money for that. I think I look at it this way..

"Celtics need to win to 3 in these games to get there safe a little bit of face and gets a respect back. We'll see what he brings but I think I'm some I think some of these Superstars are saw Stars All-Stars that you deal with and you get to know are very confident. They never lose it and there's like Kimba who will show that he's lost confidence and I think Kim was lost confidence. I think he's frustrated. I think he feels like I should be able to hit any open shot. I take he's not getting them. I mean they were so many times in New Orleans where he could have turned the tide of that game and stopped a run or brought the Celtics back or her gave him a seven-point lead when we was for and divorce was charging you missed. It opened you missed it open 3, and then he takes that three-pointer when they're down three after Brandon Eagle hit the go-ahead 3 just quit three myths like dead. You know, he was what he went to 4:17 from 3 until that fourth quarter in Dallas. So what are we dealing with? Are we dealing with that Kimba? Are we dealing with the fourth quarter Kimba in Dallas? And will he ever off when when he's just up and down? I don't think that helps his team. I don't think it helps the team when you don't know whether to depend on him for scoring and for that type of like spark plugs and maybe it's going to take another month. I don't want to put a tab and we've done washed. There's a young people say, I don't want to say that yet because I could take another month for his knee in his Durance to get back to where he's like. Hey, he's back to pre cuz if you look at his first two months in Boss increased, press before like that like up to mid January from November to mid January. I mean he was he had a 39-point game. I mean Kimba was dead. All Star Kim, so it's hard to believe like he just lost all of that. I think it's confidence though. And I think that he's gotta try to get it back with her. It'd be just hitting the gym talking to him by colleges whatever like, you know, whatever it takes for him to get that Swagger back that.

"And he has set on his hands. He sat on his hands his offseason. They signed Jeff T and they signed Tristan Thompson on the you know, T equals decent last night. I don't, you know, take the problem to me if I might as well if I was otherwise was fine as a and Thomas like and if he has faced and find you tried watching the change would enjoy that see his face until they watch Isaiah Thomas triple over his face and watch Jeff King play a single minute of a game. Just to react a terrible, you know speak with starting last night because he's afraid of the Defence the frame to get blocked. So we quick arms in an air Ball Z because he's so afraid of getting blocked at the rim, and I said, I like I think Jeff had him. I mean it was good in Atlanta and the first-ever last if you look at his numbers in Minnesota for you, I traded back to Atlanta. He was good with 14 points a game and he was a solid player so I can understand look at those numbers saying okay, he can bring that to us. So if I'm the Celtics but it hasn't worked. But are you going to just hold on to him? Like what are you going to do here? Like Danny? I thought said on his hands and we can all talk about the Gordon Hayward, Indiana thing, you know. When you sit on his hands, I mean Indies him Kevin Pritchard minute, they were talking and said they were closed but you know, it didn't work out. So, you know the sitting on your hands thinking it done cuz this is the raw since you have this is this is the Rossi rolling out on the nightly basis and it ain't scared. Nobody ain't nobody looking in Boston going Lord, besides paid him and brown and you know, they're not they're not, you know, losing sleep at night preparing for shimmy and carsen Edwards in jail T and Guy, they're not it's not they're not they're embarrassing last night was embarrassing. I mean, they obviously know, you know, most of the blame falls on Danny who owns it, you know, next level is going down to the players because they're the ones on the floor, you know, attempting to execute obviously the game plans. Hopefully not tuning out Brad Stevens, but obviously you brought that up and that's you know, if in fact they are that To me is a real concern because I don't think it's easy to just tune a guy back in. I think that's sort of the you know, beginning of the end where things are really problematic when when that reaches, you know, especially your your Star level guys tuning out the head coach and Brad, let's remember just a few months ago was extended. This guy's got like four years or something like whenever yeah anyway, but to me the two-door cars is the effort not losing its Washington the Washington game that was like they went through the motions. They let Bill get comfortable. They like, I mean, it's like all of what you don't do with the Wizards. Let me.

"Yeah, like like I mean sure like you can point to other coaches around the league and be like well that guy is doing this and it's really good or you may bolster is doing this and it's really good or Quin Snyder's doing this and it's really good. But like I mean like Brad's defense until this year pretty much every single year. The Celtics are a great defensive team under Brad Stevens, I mean birth You know, like like I don't know what's happening right now, but like it feels unlikely to me that there is somebody out there that there's a coach out there who is going to be, you know, exponentially better than Brad and is going to suck turn this group into a contender, you know, as opposed to what Brad is doing. Like I don't I didn't get the calls to fire him are one a little premature and to like just not going to happen. Like you guys might save your energy cuz like Danny's made it pretty clear that he's not that Brad isn't going anywhere and he just signed an extension. So I don't I don't think Brad Stevens is going anywhere anytime soon. Yeah. I mean obviously Evan and I agree with you on that page and don't believe he should be going anywhere, you know important distinction, you know, it's one thing to say, he should go but he won't go we don't believe you should go so, you know, we're you know, if the priest us on that that's for sure but I'm sure there are plenty of people out there anything that you do but I mean, I don't know I guess building off of that before we do let go and I'm paraphrasing here, but Gary Washburn wrote recently that you know, he believes or dead. I don't know if this came from a source or if this just says his own two eyes, but you know, he's a of the mind that you know, maybe players are starting to tune Brad out a little bit. Are you seeing any of that is is there a is there a direct connect between the coaching staff and the players because if in fact that exists then you do have a problem on your hands, of course and especially again because what like the biggest thing that you ought to do right now is keep Jaylen adjacent healthy. So if there is a happy healthy too, I suppose so like yes, I mean if if that is a problem then then certain may have to reconsider and then I think yeah, like if you're a smart franchise then Brad's job would be in trouble, you know, when you talk to the players and when the players talk like like Gary, I mean Gary really knows how long he's been around the game for a long time. Like I you know what he what he sees. There's probably something there. I don't think that's probably what's happening just because I don't see the like like in the post-game khong. Conferences the players are generally like like this is something that you know, we need to fix we need to have more energy..

Yeah, the souls do need veteran leadership Jack and that's something that I'm going to want to talk a lot about because I think that's a that's a big deal in terms of where the solvent sorry now the package they're going to have the package but they can get a lot of players. They could take a potentially package and it's not that big of a deal. They gotta make room cuz all these pics they can still have a plethora of Youth to develop that's you know mid to bottom tier but still belongs to an NBA roster and at the same time. Time combines them salaries and and do that. You know, the problem is a lot of questions out there about whether or not they trade Hayward too, so Yeah, yeah, that's true. That's very true. I think that's that's absolutely that's going to be something we're going to talk a lot about the next few days weeks months. I don't know. I'm not sure what the lender going to play again, but we know the draft of the month just about a month from now and so there's at least some certainty wage then, you know, hopefully between now and then we'll have an idea of when everything else is going to happen. But at least at the very least we'll have at least the draft and so that's that'll be off for a month, you know, and then you know, maybe we'll be able to figure out the rest of it. I mean the other piece is the Cantor piece to juror twice kind of reporting in the athletic that expect the cancer is going to try to go elsewhere as well. So in more localized news, I suppose that's probably the bigger story I guess is you know, the fact that 5 million dollars wage. And you know and I got impatient a damn right? I mean they gotta like work on that. Yeah, he's he's getting a max deal right now for sure. There's no question. There's no question often backed out and he's going to get Rose rule stuff. And so, you know, I think he's he's I can't imagine that goes any other way than that. I think it's really about the the other pieces and then I mean, let's just just throw out since we're talking all over the map here, right? If if they do come back in somewhere between Christmas and Martin Luther King Day, right? That's kind of a window they're talking about right now. Can you really see the Celtics making major systemic changes to their roster, you know taking away Gordon Hayward and trying to bring in life, you know you let's talk about the old Depot and and you know that deal, you know with with Indiana Myles Turner and Oladipo.

"He still thinks the Celtics are going to win this series and he also believes that same energy and effort was just fine and game for that that the players are wrong about what they said. Can I can I can I say what? Okay, so welcome. Thank you. I don't exactly think that they're wrong. Like I think to me it's a matter of focus and not energy. Can I give you some stats, please? Sure. I got stats. Okay. Well someone can be repaired to the show good. Yeah. So like against Toronto that you want to keep them out of transition. They're not a great offense unless they get out in transition and you want to make sure you're keeping them away from the rim, right? Like these are things that we would say are like obviously true. just want to give you so game three. We let them get out in transition 21% of their position. And in-game for that number goes down to 5% in game three thirty-eight percent of their shots were at The Rim that number is down to 23% in game four track. Basically, what we did to them in game four is make them take a ton of non Corner threes and they made a ton of them. And so like I think there's some stuff to look at Faith effort. I think like Toronto's ability to get offensive rebounds killed us in that game game four. And I think I think there's like maybe a lack of focus off in certain areas, but I think in terms of like of following the game plan that they're trying to follow I think they did a way better job in game four of forcing the shots. They want to force wage. They also the Celtics did a good job of getting to the rim a lot themselves. They were like really good at getting to the rim and in the mid-range. They just didn't make threes and I think home You know if this is a game where like where they make like three more 3-pointers out of 35 attempts, we're talking about like a close win and nobody's complaining about their efforts. So I just I don't know get a little frustrated when the conversation turns to effort. I think we mean like they blew some assignments because their heads are in the wrong place and I definitely have to clean that stuff up. But to me if they clean up the offensive rebounding thing that they're they're going to win. They're the better team something that we did not talk about wage scary just a billion other things that we hit on wouldn't have time for this one kept him long as it is guy was way too nice to us, but I try to catch a bus and go to Miami Heat game..

"Let's start with the c as though personally. I imagine a lot of faith feel the same way. I'm not over the game three laws quite frankly. In fact game for doesn't sting nearly as much to me as game 3 does just because the way that thing ended and defensive lapses that happened there at the end and Thursdays will Mark a smart seem to be the only one that knew exactly what was going on and you know where Jaylen or ties or anyone else had to go in that moment to defend OG on on a newbie on a Novia who wage obviously wouldn't and hit that winning three-pointer, but you know, it happens but then the impact of game 3 on game for where the Celtics and I know they came out after the fact Kemba Walker Jayson Tatum guys talking about. Hey, we didn't play hard enough. We didn't play, you know as energetic as the other side. Did you wrote about the lack of Desire from the C's as well in that game and wage? You know, maybe it's semantics at a certain point to you know, some of these default cliches the players rely upon after a loss. I think what it just boils down to is obviously the Raptors were out better. It were better. They outplayed them. They you know, they played smarter than the Celtics did in that game how surprising was it to you at? The Celtics came out the way they didn't perform the way they did in the wake of game three. Well, I don't think that's as much like the way they came out. I thought they were okay, you know, I mean, I thought the first half was okay. I thought a big play. I mean there's this series in this this in the last two games a bit of Sears of little things that have added up to big things. Like I thought the end of first half or the Celtics had they had made a run shimmy head of three made a layup instruments for seven straight points and may were had the ball Up 3 and with the ball..

Entertainment is actually the one that green lit them having that behind the scenes documentary crew all the way back in the late nineties. That did this and obviously commissioner now is there. An equivalent You know kind of documentary that that could be featured the celtics that could be put together. Maybe it's a in years from now. It's based around the new big three era. Maybe it goes back and it's the the original big three era may be kind of already exists with the documentaries that NBC sports. Boston is put out over the last few years. Is What do you think is? Is there some time period that you think could be I duNno remembered and produced in the same way that this whole thing will be i. think the team in the new big three are certainly could be a wouldn't be on that scale, and the NBC Boston one eight I I think the only problem with documentaries. Anyone who's ever tried to do, we'll tell you that time goes by and the stories change a little bit, so the sooner it comes out after it happened. Maybe I don't say the less the less relevant it. It is, but it's it's hard within the context of you know short period of time to sort of tell all the tell all the stories.

And it's the middle of April right now, and it's been five six weeks in this awful, but I don't believe we are halfway yet between when this started and what a quote unquote drop dead date would be. For this season. Let's say they resume. Let's be optimistic just because I think everyone needs a little bit of optimism, which team and obviously the Celtics are included in this. Which team do you think is most fitted by this? Break this layoff? Where everyone's in the same boat, you know injured guys are getting healthier. Nobody can train the same way Jason Tatum has talked about how he doesn't even have a hoop at his house. He picked up a basketball in a month. Which team has benefited the most by this? Which team is hurt the most by this well Lemay answer your optimism with pessimism. It's probably the sixers. Sort of restart and after the Celtics play, and what could be a very short first round, obviously I think taking to deep dive into this, and you could say well Lebron be rested. It's why says to great year this year because he barely played last year after playing thousands of minutes every few for so many years, Lebron's basically coming off a year off. Which is why he's been so good and it's been the second best player you know in the NBA this year I think that it's going to be wild I. Think the. The seating isn't going to matter. It's going to be a wide open tournament I think there are teams that probably talk about the teams that would be in few rights in the playoffs. Probably teams like Brooklyn that would be saying.

Last thing we're going to talk about here and It doesn't really go into natural order. I would have done it earlier except I deliberately thinking of you, the listener, and all the Celtics fans that are tired of even hearing the name Kyrie Irving and the bashing that goes along with that, and oftentimes out of my mouth or on twitter. Wherever else that's fine. I saved for the end. We're not doing anymore Celtic stuff. This will now be Kyri for the next couple of minutes, so if you WANNA turn, show off, turned the show off. That is totally up to you, but the nets fired head coach Kenny Atkinson royally screwed as far as I'm concerned. Concerned because he was one of the best coaches in the NBA last year, total chemistry shift with the turnover over the course of the off season and the moves they had to make in order to bring in that three headed monster of Kyrie Irving Kevin Durant. De'andre Jordan Irving of course as we know only played twenty games this year and then shutdown surgery durant has not played all year, but he is kind of lurked in the background, and then deandre Jordan has played, but not well, and here's what Jordan said in strongly disputing the notion that Irving in durant influence the decision for Atkinson to go the career, but you know Wilson's a new player. Garrett Temple's new player. You know we're all new players, so if you GONNA say new players put it all eight new players like whatever you saying. What reports harbor so okay I think all of that is B S. it's I just I. I know there's some reporting that start to come out of this and we don't know the exact story just yet and maybe Kenny Atkinson is breathing a giant sign of relief that you know that he is no longer.

"Those one of those guys Kinda pull the no show goes missing. Well because you brought it up. If the sixers are the sixth seed, selves finish as the third seed. Do you see that as a problem for Boston I don get? If let's say both sides come in healthy I, don't I? I, think the Celtics can beat them. I think I go back to before the season. I asked the opposing coach I said. Hey, how's Boston GonNa Defend, Philly? They're looking at the of four times. Then at some point, you assume they're going to have to go through each other in the playoffs. Only walk through a few things that they could do. But what he left me with which is stuck with me and it's proven to be true when they have played each other, he said. Philadelphia has to guard them to. And how are they? GonNa Guard the Celtics now that was one out Horford was definitely going to be in the starting five, and who knows what that will look like the time we get to a potential playoff series, but or for devotees gonNA defend one of 'em, favorite or Brown. That's that's I. Mean Nothing has shown me that Al Horford it's GonNa. Be Up to that task, and that's that's why I think Boston what they do better in playoff series, which is why they have advanced outside of last season's debacle while they advanced further than I think most people expected is Brad. Stevens is able to game plan. He finds an attack point for an opponent where we're GONNA. GonNa go at this guy over and over and over and over again if you take him out damn what we're. GonNa do is we're going to find the next guy and they will bleed. Those mismatches matches for everything. They can get out of our and we know that they're going to be. If everybody's there, they're going to be solid defensively and tells us that there they they have always been. So I'm not I'm not overly worried about that. Match up I. Think embiid yet. He maybe averages thirty thirty five points a game for the series, but I don't think they're overly concerned about that house. Really going to get to the other sixty seventy points that they're going to need to win. That's what Boston's GonNa be focused on taking away on. That does the fact that Boston spent so much? This year banged up. Serve as another example of why the team really can't afford to. To rest guys down the stretch. I mean from the standpoint chasing the two seat. Obviously forget it, but also there's chemistry and you brought this up earlier. The key guys have barely been on the floor together this year. Yeah, no one hundred percent. They gotTA play it out. You know seating reasons, not not that just to get those minutes together. It's also reason why want anybody jumps? No, you get them in your mansion because I see him just like assuming mind, why did he? Do anything nowadays. He's on a go. Get somebody. There's part of me I I. Understand. Who did you want him to get people to stop with the Jamal Crawford stuff? There's a reasonable Crawford's out of the League and was barely in the league last year. He was relegated to the end of the Phoenix Suns Bench. Like I love Jamal Crawford, but he's just he's done..

"Think they key so much their offense production off of getting good defensive plays, and what we've seen in these handful games is you have now multiple players from these teams that have just Kinda beat the Celtics almost singlehandedly I. Guess as easiest way can put a camera verb went crazy and went on Personal Westbrook Colin Section the Game Boston one, but he went on Mike Conway and then Chris Paul last night. Chris Paul in yesterday's game. Sunday we go to wherever he wanted on the Ford now he's Chris Paul, but you would think the Celtics should be able to control that a little bit. That was you know that's what was disappointing and then when they can't get those stops, I think they put more pressure on themselves. Happy get a score every time down. I think that's when you start to see guys. Maybe a little bit out of good. Ball Movement player movement offense. The C. is trying to do IT A. A little bit too much themselves, and that's where it all breaks down for them, so I think it's problems. Defensively lead to problems offensively. Maybe the answer is what we just discussed, but because of course you do the popular takeaway columns for Celtics blog after each and every game, and you know it's it's always more fun when they're positive takeaways, the negative, although we were talking a little bit off air about the fan base, and I think it's sort of the nature of fans. In any market by the way, not just celtics, fans or anything, but it's it's more typical it's it's part of the human essence as a sports fan to complain when things are bad than to celebrate when things are good, so you tend to get more reaction out of the negatives, so in the spirit of a negative, what is the biggest flaw right now as a team and you can't say lack of health obviously. Oh Man. You took easy one right off the. no I think it's. toy I I'M GONNA Kinda? I'm GONNA cheat a little bit here because they think it's somewhat created from the lack out, but it'll. Help it's? It's I? Don't think they really know who they are league games, I think because you haven't had enough time with those five. Kinda keys guys tatum Hayward, Smart Walker and Brown on the court together late in those games. I think that they they just they're. They're still a little bit of uncertainty to art. Should we differ to Kemba because he's the vet who has done this? A million times or do we let the kids who are obviously a future? This thing we'd us well hayward actually in there tonight. Go on. Maybe he should be the guy, and then we all know Marcus. Smart's never gonNa shy away from taking a big shot late in the game himself..

"Losses in four or five overall double digit leads in all those Games Boston Blue Against Oklahoma, city Utah, Brooklyn and Houston, and in many cases, leads of seventeen eighteen, even twenty one points. It's been frustrating another edition of Celtics. Beat Adam Kaufman here with you and thank you for tuning in thanks also for just joining us while things are getting a little hairy right. Right now I. Wish I had better news, but closing games has become a real problem for this Celtics team with nineteen games left in the regular season, and flailing hopes at landing the second seed in the Eastern Conference now three game deficit behind those raptors now to be fair, Jalen Brown he's out with a hamstring injury Gordon Hayward Jason, Tatum, they've missed some time. Kemba Walker as well. He's still clearly not right, so the sees far from. From being one hundred percent overall, but these are still games. You need to win when you jump out. Those huge leads like I talked about Marcus Smart. His foul on carousel averted the regulation. The Nets lost just inexcusable, and then the thunder game most recently last night, and I was in the building for this just given away when Kemba Dennis Schroder to take that ball to strip. It away delivers the go ahead, layup and Walker all you. You had to do all he had to do was hold the ball and way to fouled. That's it so pair of just really really immensely frustrating losses and well. Let's hear Brad. Stevens Marcus Smart Kemba Walker Gordon Hayward all trying to cheer us up just a little bit. You can feel like you're on top of the world one week, and you can feel like the sky's falling the next, and that's the hardest part about the NBA. The way it goes, you know we're in a way right now. Where we just don't sustain it the way that we know we can't well. I don't know what's going on out there like we. We let other teams pressure. Take.
