"To basically the run is the key just slow, methodical drives. I don't think you want to do that. Basically, the same game play in the Celtics side against the Lakers in game 7 in 2010, where they just double team Kobe. So Kobe, you're going to want to be the hero of this game. We're going to use that against you and then finally in the fourth quarter, his teammates commits him give up the wall that stuff. The Mike Mart's corollary, Brian day ball, buffalo. The mites curler, but where have any team with their offensive coordinator or head coach trying to prove his genius in a playoff game? The bill's chiefs, Friday about trying to get jobs right now.

Thinking about the bills because to me, it's like just put Josh and shotgun. You know, the recipe just. But is he gonna get two innovative in this game? What do you think? Two cute.

"I think this is also a flat roster. And so it's really hard to gauge what he is as a coach when you don't have much to work with. And the young guys, everyone's like, play the young guys. The young guys have been pretty bad when they have played this year. Outside of Pritchard recently, these guys haven't shown consistency to force their way into the rotation. And when you're a room coach and you have two all stars and you want to start on a strong note, so you're gonna rely too much on veterans and that I think has been to is detriment a little bit early. So I think the jury is out there, but I'll say it just I'll be very curious to see what it looks like when he actually gets a more well rounded roster. You know how long he's under contract, I know the Celtics don't put those details out, but do you know? I don't know. My guess would be like three or four years. I was gonna say three to 5. There's no way it's less than three. No, it's no way it's less than three. And yeah, I would imagine that it would be, I think that's the perfect range for any first time at coach. You're not going to go down there then three or four, but you're going to get some security on that standpoint. And I think from what I've heard, like the locker room is still very much with him like they're buying into him and that's not a surprise based on the advocacy he had to come here in the first place, but that's obviously important too. I got a real quick one before we let B rock go here. I want to create a new segment and Adam, you'll be familiar with this. It's called what news is about to break after we stop in prison. Either you have news to break or can you guess what news will bring? Following this podcast is actually where B rob I mean, I would say unbelievable. On average, let's be kind and say, on average, one out of every three shows, something happens either before we release or immediately after we release. Like, I mean, it's without fail. It's really like if bet online could create odds for us to gamble on this. I would every week. Well, here you go. So Daryl morey is giving an interview in lifetime right now on the radio.

"There are roster tweaks that can make to make the number go up as well. Am I wrong on that? No, absolutely. House is a perfect example. I know he hasn't had any opportunities, but that's a guy that teams are going to have to respect from three. And putting an 8 in the game the other day for me. Yeah, he's right. He's or at least you have to find out if he isn't going to translate necessarily. We know that far too well, based on Edwards, anyone? Right, exactly. But at the same time, you at least putting a thread of that in the floor will help teams. And there is a balance for that, but at this point, email is very much relying on the veterans right now. And so that's a situation where we have that conversation of female. Even I'm sure right now he's doing what he's doing. Like Brad's probably pretty hands off there. But if Brad makes some decisions with the roster, the train deadline to take out some of those guys in the equation to your point, heaven like that makes things you have one option if you're made open. That's to put more shooting out there because your alternatives as far as veterans are gone. So two quick questions that we got on social media and I'm just going to kind of paraphrase a little bit to combine some in the interest of time. But, you know, Scott had asked about best good passing point guard role that fans are clamoring for, someone else had asked about, you know, is Brad delaying the deal for that playmaker with important games before the deadline who realistically is a guy that they could get. You know, as far as a true point guard, are there specific guys that either you're hearing about that could be on the block that would be good fits for Boston or that you just believe in your own research and reporting that you think our guys that are targeting for the Celtics that are realistic..

"Just please wear the game starts. Yeah, help the man out. At least we're not talking about the paths anymore. In the interest of time, because we've got you for another ten, 15 minutes, there's still some stuff that I want to get to. One of which you did a deep dive on for mass live earlier today, which of course, everybody's talking about it Jason Tatum's shooting struggles. The man is, you know, 14 straight mysteries now after the zero for 7 against the hornets, he's shooting a career low just below 32% from three point range and he's doing it as you noted on a career high 8 attempts per game. You know, Brad Stevens was on the radio this morning, said he's not concerned about it. You know, guys are going to miss. It's all about getting looks. If you get the looks eventually wanders gonna find its level and yada yada yada, but should we be concerned me rob? Yeah, I mean, first of all, when Brad's comments is like, what is he going to say? Like, yeah, I'm freaking out about it, because it's incredible. This is awful. This is our cornerstone and easy. Forgot how to shoot this season. Now, but. Tatum has a history of starting season slow and then really finding his own after the all star break. So from that standpoint, you don't worry too much. There is time to turn things around. With that said, this is a pretty dramatic drop off. Like 31% is bad. And I know the NBA as a whole has taken a dip in 3.3 this year for whatever reason, whether it's fans back. The new ball. The new ball. Tatum obviously is playing the Olympics. He hasn't had time to dive. He can point to a thousand different reasons why might be the case, but the problem is, like, what everyone kind of wrote about, too, and everyone talks about what the Celtics need and the offensive was a big part of the equation is Jayson Tatum has been a lot worse on offense this year. Like period. And when you're efficiency drops, and if you just play at the level they were at playing out last year, they would be the four or 5 seed right now. They would probably have won at least three or four more games just based on the amount of 5 of 19 duds that Tatum has had this season, which I think honestly is probably approaching 8 9 ten games right now in total. So there's still time to turn around the four years of a track record indicate that no, he has not forgotten on issue. We have pretty good at hard evidence that he'll come around on this, but you do have to wonder just, again, when this turns around and whether the fact how much of a problem the fact that someone don't have reliable offensive outlets around him have kind.

"And maybe you can retain shooter as a starter next year because he wants to play for at a far cheaper number. Is that the route they will go? I don't know, I don't know if they're sold on him as a long term answer there, potentially, but if you get a good offer. But if you can spend some of that money in other parts of the roster and get something good back for smart, then it might start to make sense to do something like that. So again, the odds are far more likely that shorter is dope than any of those guys in that list, but it doesn't surprise me to know that the Celtics are checking in on all those things just to see what potential buns they could push here to start building down the road and whatever direction they do to build around the JS. Well, we'll find out in the days and weeks to come obviously what's real what's due diligence, you know, you'll have reports, wow, and jobs and everybody else. We'll find out we'll get an idea of whether when they're smoke, there's fire versus, you know, it's just Talking Heads on the radio on TV or on the Internet, having a little bit of fun on Twitter. But you know, I don't know. The Dennis schwer thing is just so interesting because you can make a case. You can look at this in a lot of different ways. You can make a case that they have a higher ceiling just again this year with a guy like Schroeder versus not. Some would make the case otherwise because obviously the liabilities that haven't talked about, you could argue for him being the starter, even when smart returns and smart coming off the bench, he certainly thrived under Brad Stevens as a 6th man before becoming. This team started obviously in many ways smart as more of a playmaker. Schroeder is more of a guy who's who's got, you know, an offensive touch. We've seen it recently with the opportunity. But I come back to this kind of core thing, which we've been talking about in this show a ton throughout the season, which is, you're not going anywhere this year. You're not. You know, whatever your ceiling is this year and I do believe it's playoffs. Maybe it's win around, you know, go out in the second round. You're not a contender. You're not winning a championship this season, barring something wildly drastic happening in terms of in addition or injuries and the perfect matchups or whatever else. You know, I mean, it would be a real lightning in a bottle kind of thing. So if we operate with that mindset, you're thinking about getting under the luxury tax, you're thinking about freeing up opportunity and development and I don't think it's a development season per se, and I've had back and forth with people on Twitter about that. But I do think that there is value in we saw it when Schroeder was out when others have been out. You talked about how hard this team has been hit by COVID injuries and whatever else, you know, Peyton prichard's a guy who should be playing. And Peyton Pritchard and Romeo Langford and Aaron nee Smith, all these guys like, you got to find out if you have anything there. You need to really see if you have anything there in.

"And maybe they go get Bill and maybe or maybe they go get Lillard. Throwing out maybe, maybe you prefer. Maybe you prove to be right by getting out ahead of it and look at it and go, we had to move Jalen not because he's not talented and him and Tatum get along off the floor definitely and they're coming along maybe on the floor. We'd like to think so. That's something that's something you have to look at big picture, too, I think, is like, because Tatum for the most part has been pretty good about staying healthy, not out long periods time. No, he plays Iron Man really. He's been he's an Iron Man. Tatum. Yeah. So I don't know. I mean, maybe that. Maybe all year before entering protocols. Yes. Maybe that's what leads to the frustration on the court and the why they can't figure it out. It's like they're still really young kids and he looks at it and goes, Tatum more specifically, I can't get into a rhythm with anybody. They tell me to pass more and then it's a new dude in and out of the lineup every night. Like maybe that's and he looks at it and goes Bradley Beal is not missing games in Washington and I think he did this a few games this year. Of course it gets hurt for the first time in his career this year. Maybe that's what it is. So that's something they have to think about. Take the talent, take talent out of it. Health is a big part of it too. Never mind the COVID, but injuries, actual injuries. Is this your very first interview as voice of the main Celtics? Yes, it is. Okay, sorry. Good.

"Just talk to us because we don't spend any time on this show talking about the main Celtics until right now with you on it. So what should the people know what the people to be excited about for this team for this roster for as it just again relates to all things Celtics fandom? From a big picture standpoint, one of the first things email doka said when he took the head coaching job with the Celtics was he, he does find some importance in the G league development. And that holds true with if you look at San Antonio and their roster, the spurs, there are some G league talents that did shine at that level and then took the next steps moving up. So there definitely is more being invested into the NBA G league. That's a great first step and then just from the actual basketball sends another quote from email don't go when he was introduced as head coach of the Boston Celtics. So you want to get those assists up. Well, jerel Christian, who was the first year head coach of the main Celtics, he used to be with the wizards G league affiliate, the capital city go go, something he's implemented here with the main Celtics is they want just they want to not only push the pace, but wants those assists to be up and going into the Las Vegas showcase, which took place last week. The main Celtics led the G league in assists. They led the league in offensive rating, led the league in scoring. So they were doing a lot of great things as it pertains to moving the basketball. They play a very fast brand of basketball. They had the best second best record in the G league going into the showcase at 9 and one. They split their series with Long Island. So it's an unselfish brand of basketball and I really don't say that with a smirk because that's what we're hoping for out of the parent club. It actually is a really fun brand of basketball. They're playing. They play in the small confines of the expo in Portland Maine. But it's a fun brand of basketball. They push the ball, they're unselfish. They're bigs can pass cornet has demonstrated that juwan Morgan, who is a player who played in the bubble as a playoff player in the Utah Denver series a couple of years ago. So they've got some guys here that are on the cusp of being full-time pros, but they considering that league you'd think, oh, well, you're going to just give the ball to the two best players, arguably the two way guys and they're going to get theirs and they're going to get called up and then everyone else just tries to become the next them. They actually play a very good brand of basketball. Team oriented. But be honest, you're devastated you missed out on taco fall..

"Calendar year. Everyone is eager to put the 2021 Celtics behind them and that goes back to last season as well. And, you know, we can look at the 2022. Maybe things are better in the new year, I hope because what we know right now is fresh off two straight losses three out of four as we sit here on this Wednesday, the Celtics. They remain mediocre and bound for the play in tournament if they're so lucky is to get that far. But I will stand by what I have said before, which is if the Caesar is so fortunate to sit basically 500 at New Year's Day. Things are okay. They're going to be okay because honestly, I probably wouldn't have been surprised if you told me they were 6 or 7 games under by that point. I'm Adam Kaufman, Evan valenti here, as always.

"Kind of why I propose that. Yeah, I mean, I think it's possible. It's highly possible. I don't know if anyone averages that number anymore, you know? Like that's right. It's just it's kind of the way the style of the game is, it's hard to see. But I think that I mean, certainly double digits, I think this will then range for him. And I think that it's a question of trying to figure out who you are for 82 games, right? Or let's say a reasonable 70 72 games, right? Miss ten, miss every few, you know, but like play the vast majority of the games. What type of player is he when you get through that? And we're looking at Al Horford right now who sat out effectively most of last year and looks amazing, right? For the first time, he looks like he's in his 20s. Exactly. You know? I mean, right now, the time lord has the benefit of that, right? He has the benefit of not having that kind of constant wear on his body of playing 82 games. But I know that's not to say that orford has that right now, but you understand the point is that no one is going to look as good who plays consistently and as often as hard as someone who's, you know, yes they're injured, but they're only playing half the games or something. So it's hard to figure out what is ceiling is still at this point. But that's why I remember the health thing. I'm saying if you remove the whole thing, he plays 82 games at around 30 minutes to 32 minutes a night. If he can achieve that kind of conditioning and health, I think he could, I think he could be a real standout rebounder in the league. And I think a lot of it has to do with the offensive rebounds. Everything you said about the style of the game, I'm a 100% on with you, but especially for Celtics teams that are so streaky with the shooting. You know, you can see him racking up offensive rebounds. Even though I know you got to get back on D you know, a lot of that stuff is timing when the ball is coming off the rim and you're not even transitioning yet. And that's where he gets a lot of that work done..

"We'll just say I'm thrilled with the way things turned out. I am, I was surprised by how nice it felt to be back inside the arena to not be last season being in the studio the whole time. That was the first time I have missed a Celtics game in 8 years and it felt weird. It was very strange to not be there. And it was really hard for me to not get in the car and drive to the arena to instead drive to our studios and need them. So I was thrilled to be back and thrilled to be back with the people who, you know, who you used to see every day and didn't get to say goodbye to you because it was such an abrupt ending when the whole pandemic went down, and then everything after everything that I went through in the summer with being laid off and all of that, it was just like, I am not taking anything for granted this season. So being back on the road, I told this story and my husband is sick of it right now. But the first road trip I got to go on was to Orlando and, you know, so we get to stay at, I usually stay where the team is. And walked into this beautiful hotel and I flew in later 'cause I just, I don't know, this is inside, but I tend to fly commercial to the places so that I can leave usually the team leads one or two in the afternoon and that just doesn't really jive with my family life. So I try to take the last fight out and get in. So I got to Orlando got to the hotel about midnight. I got off the elevator and I was like, gosh, it's so bright in this hallway. And they used to drive me crazy, right? Late at night. I'm trying to wind down. I'm gonna go to bed. And then I said to myself, what am I talking about? This is amazing. I am back on the road. I'm at this beautiful hotel. There was a balcony. I was just like, I was smiling from ear to ear. I was so giddy just to be, you know, back out there. And so my husband was like, you can cool it with the pool picks, you know? We get it. You're here with the kids. Yeah, we get it. You're back on the road. It's happy for you. But so I just am after everything in the pandemic and all of it, I am just not taking anything for granted. And so excited to be back on the road be back inside arena..

"A code True by the NBA standard of how we judge coaches. Do you win more games than your supposed to had a very good eight year? Run? That went from outstanding to maybe one down to very good, right into in the last three years and you've replaced them with someone who has never done the job before in either spot. Of course you got concerned to be, you know, by the way, that's what they say. When Danny Ainge became general manager of the world's first time. What do they say? He's never done that before. He doesn't know what he's doing, he's just the coach. All right, so there's there are questions. There's uncertainty, there was a difficult season to get through last year's. It's all the stuff is. I think it's fair to ask questions and you wouldn't nobody you connected to the Boston. Celtics wants to be involved in a franchise where the expectations aren't super high and you get this criticism. This is part of being the Boston Celtics. I'm not going to name another team in a smaller Market or whatever that has no history of winning or something like that. But this is, this is part of the price that comes with, you know, we're in Boston Celtics on the front of your jersey or shirt or your polo shirt or on stenciled into your office, your business office. Yeah, I mean, look, nobody's going to be satisfied, right? I think, I think once the ball rolls out, we see what's going on. I think people will be little more calm than they currently are in. Elgon as, as we've all kind of, you know, talked about, we talk about even, you know, pre-show Twitter, is it always, this is a dumpster fire. But especially the past couple of days and I get like the, the appeal of the shiny new toy and stuff, it just it right now. Like financially doesn't make a lot of sense for Boston at all. And again, if if this is the plan so to speak, I understand it. Totally under totally get it. It's just a matter of, you know, following through on that next season. When, and, and my only my issue is I guess it seems like in again, as a content creator, so to speak. You know, the off season is way way more valuable than the actual season itself because we do our best numbers, you know, YouTube wise, downloads wise Etc.

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.

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 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..

"To you'll Las Vegas or anywhere? I go and I always feel a little bit like crap. After I get off the plane, these guys live on planes, and and I know their private planes for the most part and their. You know a lot of teams not own their own plane east. East Nice, but it's still it's a tough environment, and then you know fan interaction, and those kind of things, and then we see other guys who are just blatantly disregarding what they've been told, and they're up in the crowd, taking pictures and high five and everybody under the Sun, and you know so. It's you know it's one of those things where I think you know. I was back the vast majority of these guys in their early to mid twenties, and when you're in your early to mid twenty, you're invincible, right I never get sick I you know I can run all day and I'm fine, and and maybe the mindset, but I think we're in. Change a little bit with the way it looks here the product as far as the presentation part of it. Going forward at least probably for the remainder, maybe this regular season. 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.

"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.
