snakeoil123, as always, you provide a more level-headed post.
You're right, it's way too early to freak out. But, but, but, it's not too early to have some discussion on the lack of cohesiveness seen thus far. Honestly, that is a surprise to me. I did not think we'd look this bad after four games.
I would have guessed that the Celtics would be the more crisp, cohesive team last night. Philly worked the ball around, played great defense and plain dominated us in every phase.
I said on another thread, if the Celtics were playing like world-beaters, you can bet there would be some "positive" discussion on that. You'd have posters claiming the championship in October. After the first two preseason games, folks were justifying Jeff Green's big contract.
You're right, it has to play itself out and, in time, it most likely will.
I thought they looked really good against the Knicks. That game was totally in control and then they played Downs, Smith, Christmas Melo, and Joeseph at the end.
I didn't see the game last night. If I did maybe I would be more concerned, but Garnett sat and Rondo and pierce played 20 minutes.
I need to watch some of the game tonight to better evaluate the Celtics performance in the pre-season.
