    Play of big three is KEY

    It is time to rest the big three.  No more than 15 minutes per game.

    There is NO-WAY. They have to get primed and ready for the playoffs.

    Re: Time to rest them:

    Forced rest is necessary, it is evident to people that watch the games that we are going to burn out our team trying to secure first place.  As goes the big three so goes Rondo,  because Rondo does not have the ability to create offense when the pressure is on.  The subs with 15 to 20 minutes form the big three might just be enough to keep us in the race.  Lots more time for West at point guard with the starting bunch, West should be the finisher at point in any game that is close at the end.  Rondo could finsih games that we are 10 points or more ahead.  Carlos would even be better that Rondo at the very end of a game in some cases.  My big concern is the first round, we do not take lesser teams seriously and that is a FACT.  So, in my opinion the first round is a very dangerous round for the Celts.  Doc has West, Baby, and Green and if we winn it will come down to how doc uses these three players , plus whatever centers he has available.  I notice that when we first got Krstic and looked for him on a consistent basis that we did pretty good.  Lately they are not looking for him and are not trying to set him up, I do not know why they stopped but they did, they still get him the ball but it is an afterthought rather than a set up where he gets the ball in great position.  I was all for getting the best record, especially with the schedule we  had and have, but the team can not focus on lesser teams and that is a FACT, we might as well get over it and rest the big three, because it looks like we will go number 2 or 3.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Time to rest them: : To early to give up the battle for HCA.  The 2007 Mavs tried to rest in April of 2007 and it resulted in a 1st round exit, losing to the #8 seed Warriors. Last year the Orlando Magic swept the Hawks in the 2nd round of the playoffs. They rested for a week and it resulted in them becoming rusty and falling behind the Celts 0-3 in the ECF. Sometimes too much rest is a bad thing. The Celtics have not had a complete team all season. Once both O'Neals return next week it will be the first time Doc will have a complete team. And you want them to rest?
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]   I thought this team took a petty good break in the last 20 games or so , last year and it worked very well for them.  We are playing like crapt at this point, so what is the point.

    But not by running the starters into the ground though. We won't have HCA anyway, at least not in the ECF, if we get there.

    Re: As the 3 go, so goes rondo

    How bout it's time for the Big 3 to suck it up and win a game.  Our "big 3" are more like the disappearing three.  When's the last time one of them let alone all of them dominated a game?

    The Heat's BIG 3 had 91 points tonight beating the Sixers by 12.

    In the last two games,  who was better than RA, PP, and KG?  No one should have been.

    When's the last time one of the "future Hall of Famers" scored 30 pts.?  Let alone all 3 of them scoring over 20 each.

    It's time to stop blaming Rondo or Krstic or DA or even Doc.  These 3 need to show a little pride and start playing like PR suggests they can.

    Well when they aren't getting the most shots they aren't going to dominate. Too many games Davis and Rondo are the leading shooters, not good. Pierce and Allen both need to get 20 shots

    You are correct!!!  And maybe KG needs to start walkin the walk!!!  He hasn't even shot 200 FT's.  That's pathetic for a PF.  Time to get a set.

    Posted by PACelt[/QUOTE]   I have been waiting for this post, it is the best, you see the real problem which is the plaly of the big three, this team has a good bench and a fair point guard, but this team is all about the leadership and play of Ray, Kevin, and Paul and it has always been about their play, we had no good team until be got them, they must lead or we will sink.

    Great post   All of the big 3 have been awful the past couple of weeks.  They have to start playing better.   If this continues during the playoffs, we may not even win our 1st playoff series, let alone get to the Eastern Conference finals.  The other top teams in the East have been playing great lately and the Celtics have been on a downward spiral.

    Fiercest,
    I have no idea the current status of the Rondo and the big three's mindset and what is going on. But after blowing a bunch of games to weak teams this month we have blown our chances for HCA.  

    To win the four games this week seems very very very difficult considering the way we are going.  Two Back to Backs will severely test this team's fatigue factor which is already evident.

    Then to think after this horrible week we have to play the Magic, Bulls, and Heat at home.  HCA is not happening.  If it does I will be thrilled to see the Heat and Bulls implode like we have the last two weeks.  Hope is eternal but reality is also setting in.  Shaq and Danny screwed this team up good in just a month.  Doc should have said no to them all.

    Uh yes... the great dilemma.....  accept that your team s ucks if your three stars don't play perfect games or try to win with them but find out that by playing them you can't really win because ummmmm  your team really s ucks if they don't play perfect games.....  Catch-22....

    My 73 old stepfather said Memphis and Charlotte are automatic wins, I said so a team that has a point guard that is playing better than Rondo, a better center, a better powerforward, an ex-Celtic who wants to make them pay and an underrated star should be the Cs..... oh and Memphis was missing its best player.... ditto for Charlotte.....

    The step back that the Cs have taken is directly attributable to Shaqs' injury and Rondo's exposure and the minutes that the actual BIG 3 (the BIG 4 is a joke) have been playing.

    Saying the play of the BIG 3 is key is like saying that the key to Miami's winning is the play of the BIG 3 - duh......

    So you are being extraordinarily profound by saying that the play of your best players is critical to success... wow..... so expecting that Big Baby, Udonis Haslem, Ronnie Brewer, Shannon Brown, etc. is not the key to winning a title?

    The big three do not need to play perfect, they just need to play their games and we will be fine.
