    Good team and coach

    We are ahead in the Clipper game at the half, but win or lose the Boston Celtics are a nice suprise this year.

    Seems quite a few here have underestimated this team even still with the season 28% over and looking better than when the season started. Can't wait to see if Danny buys or sells.

    Good article on Brad's system to firm up the defense and hide our shortcomings ...

     

    http://nba.si.com/2013/12/10/brad-stevens-boston-celtics-the-fundamentals/

     

    They’ve done so by locking down the perimeter with incredible success, as Boston has prioritized its defense of the three-point line. When beyond the arc, Celtics defenders play tight to their marks, almost to a degree that would encourage driving. When the ball swings to an open opponent, a Boston player sprints out to chase him inside the arc. Everything is geared toward forcing shooters to compromise, and as a result the Celtics allow the fewest number of three-point attempts in the league (just 16.5 per game) at the second-worst percentage. Plus, forcing shooters to put the ball on the floor has created turnovers from a possession type that’s normally as safe as they come. The catch-and-shoot three-pointer is an incredibly low-risk opportunity, but the Celtics have forced turnovers on 7 percent of their opponents’ spot-up possessions, according to Synergy Sports. That’s an impressive mark, on par with the three-point-conscious defenses in Indiana and Miami.

    The same is true of the Celtics’ work in guarding the pick-and-roll. The basic defensive structure in place isn’t too different from what you’ll find in Indiana, which makes sense given that Stevens has picked the brain of Pacers coach Frank Vogel. Celtics big men will guard the pick-and-roll by laying back to the free-throw line, containing the ball handler in a low-efficiency pocket until the screened guard can recover. Sullinger is especially successful in that regard. He’s not especially big or quick, but by taking smart angles, Sullinger appears to cover more ground than he does. He’s always in the way, whether in keeping a ball handler from getting to the rim or bumping a roll man off his path.

    I just wonder if we will go to the win now attack with Rondo or if we trade Rondo and wait on lady luck in the draft and with trades?

    Some time during the game last night Tommy started to talk about Rondo but got interupted by a big play and never came back to finish his thoughts on Rondo playing in Brad's system. But this is what he did say ...

    While Tommy sat in during practice he'd watch Rondo working out one on one with Walter McCarty. He said Rondo was terrific one on one and has been working hard to get back. He also starting to say that he's been working on his 3 pt shooting and mid-range jump shot and doing great. That's when he got cut off by game action and failed to finish his thoughts but he talked as though Rondo was preparing for success in Brad's system and Tommy had no doubt's that he would be very effective.

    Straw man!

     

     

    Tommy would NEVER SAY Rondo would not succeed in Stevens' system.

    Just like Tommy would NEVER SUPPORT tanking.

    Duh!

    So you are saying that Rondo has no concern about adjusting and being successful in Brad's system that he's so arrogant and stubborn that he will make Brad change his system to fit Rondo?

    Stevens' system thrives when players can shoot from the outside.

     

    Rondo's just not a good shooter from beyond the arc.

    The ball movement will get screwed up if Rondo passes up on an open 3-pointer on a regular basis.

     

    Just look at how the Celts are playing now.

    The starting 5 of Sully, Bass, Green, AB, and JC can all shoot from the outside.

    Opposing teams can't sag off any of those players.

    When Rondo is the PG and not JC, teams will once again take the Miami Heat approach and let Rondo shoot from the outside while the opposing PG will roam.

    If Rondo becomes a 3-point shooter then no need to trade him.

     

    But we all know KG should have played in the low post more and KG could never do it.

     

    It's the mindset.

    No matter how hard Rondo practices shooting from beyond the arc, the question is will he have the confidence to shoot in real NBA game.

     

    We already know Rondo's a good shooter in practice.

    Tommy keeps saying that.

    But during games, Rondo tends to pass up open shots.

    give rondo a chance. let him shoot threes since we are not suppose to win games

    Re: Good team and coach

    Rondo leading the team will cause some changes, we will need to wait and see if they help or hurt our chances to win games.  Both Rondo and Stevens will need to be open to some changes.  It sounds like $$$$ will solve our problem of Rondo and most likely Bradley.
