PROMOTED FORUM POST: While it’s great to see the team rally in the absence of Rondo and now Sully too, I’m also a bit disappointed that they failed to get their heads screwed on straight when they were healthy. I knew Rondo would be scapegoated if the team started playing well, and while he deserves some of the blame, much of it also lies with the team. The new guys spent way too much time standing around.
And while there’s some truth to the “better ball movement gets me in rhythm” thread, there’s also some level of crap mixed in. Bass shouldn’t be talking that kind of junk because he played great last year when Rondo was setting the table for him.
Lee I recognized was playing better with the ball in his hands, so he was a perfect fit running the offense for the second unit. As for Terry, I’m not buying it completely. He should had been shooting better. Like Doc said, they’re just hitting their shots now. They had plenty of open looks before.
At one point Jeff Green’s shot chart was put on the screen. All of his made baskets were at the rim. What took him so long to find his aggression?
Maybe it’s the offense they were running. I fault Rondo for not pushing the pace as much as possible. But I was also annoyed seeing his teammates set up along the sideline behind the arc, waiting for a kickout pass for a 3. They’re missing the point of a fast break.
Boston capitalized on the schedule and beat a pair of bad teams. And Orlando was down two valuable players. The schedule is going to get tougher with the Clippers, Lakers, Nuggets, and Bulls coming up. Should we believe they are good enough to beat these teams or is this three-game win streak an abberation?
