    Tonight was instructive to all the pumpers here who want to believe we are ready to win a championship.  If we kill the Bulls on Friday we still need help up front.  It is not going away. It is a glaring weakness, this team is going to burn out Garnett by the All Star break.

     

    The idea that Sullinger, Wilcox and Collins provide enough help upfront is insane.

     




    Its simple. Our issues and problems are masked if we shoot the ball well. If the shots don't fall we are toast. 1D....

     



    Celtics' FGP in this game was .459, it is just .005 worse than their average (which is 5th highest in the league) so i'd say they shot the ball well and still lost.

    It's not the FG% that made the difference, it's the FTs. The Celts were just 6-16 from the stripe while the Hornets went 26-31. Celts were outscored by 20 points at the FT line.

     

    Celts tend to foul last night because the Hornets were bigger and stronger. That's usually what happens when you're overmatched, you tend to foul. 

    Aminu went 12-13 from the FT line. He's a tall SF, 6-9, similar to Jeff Green. He attacked and Pierce couldn't stop him. Pierce fouled out. 

    The Hornet players are tall and big, Lopez is 7-0, Davis 6-10, and Aminu 6-9. The Celts were simply overmatched.

    That's why the Celts need another big man taller and better t   han Bass.  



    After BBD was traded for Bass.  Did we intend to keep Bass as a bench player?  He was clearly undersized to start at forward with another six-seven Pierce at the other forward.  What was Danny thinking?  You have to be critical of Ainge here considering the void up front was here before Bass got here.

    NO dominated inside the paint with a huge rebounding advantage (48 to 33) and foul shots taken (31 to 16) and made advantage (26 to 6). They won the game getting to the line. Even if the Celts had hit all there foul shots, they would have lost. The Celtics actually made more shots from the floor, but clearly it was an undersized team that was killed inside. Also, KG was the worst player statistically at an unadjusted -26; so it wasn't all about size. Paul had a bad game as well. Were was Rondo and somebody else with youthful vigor to bail them out?

    Well I wouldn't say our 3pt shot was considered shooting well.  It was horrible.

    Before Bass became a Celtic, KG was the PF and JO was the Center.

     

    There was no way the Celts could have kept BBD because he wanted more money and he was an unrestricted FA. So instead of losing BBD for nothing, the Celts signed and traded BBD for Bass.

    The Celtics didn't get Bass to be a starter. In fact, last season, it was only when Wilcox was out for the season and JO was no longer with the Celts that Bass became a full-time starter. 



    And then the C's started playing well all the way to the Conf finals.  Winning also masks a lot of problems that we don't pay attention to until you start losing.

    Agree. Ainge have to find a big or the C's won't last long in the playoffs.

     

    And something else about the freethrows... Didn't see that moment but read about it on the other thread: WTF was that when Doc chose Aminu to be at the foul line after NOLA's player went down and couldn't return to the game?!!! Why not Austin Rivers - their worst free-throw shooter?!

    Come on, it's his son. You don't embarrass your son like that.

     

    Fathers would understand what Doc did.

     




    Well, i think it's unprofessional move. 

    But ok, basketball is just a game and the Celtics lost not because of those 2 points anyway.
