Really, is anyone surprised by this? For years, this team and our "superstars" have shown us they don't have the killer mentality.

Did Mazzulla go home early or something?

I really don't think it's about killer mentality, anymore than when the patriots sucked in 2009 it was about swagger. I think they have a rookie coach and it shows.

Whether or not he can or will improve, time will tell.

I don't know why this pisses me off, I guess because it seems so wasted. Tatum isn't the competitor Brady was and I doubt he was seriously moved by this.

I have little to no faith in them so it's easy to feel disconnected from their fortunes. The physical talent is there, the mental makeup, I'm afraid not.

Stats do not lie ... blame is not on Mazzulla ...

Well that was about as bad as it gets.

They were down 3-2 last year and going on the road and won behind a massive Tatum game, but it's hard to feel too confident about much of anything right now.

This team lacks structure, discipline and grit.

Horford is done.

I hate RW3 not starting.

Giving Mazzola an extension was a mistake.

I miss Doc

I can't remember -- was Rivers fired, or did he just decide to go elsewhere when his contract expired?

Actually Doc had 3 years left on his deal.

My understanding is he told Danny he wasn't all that thrilled with a rebuild but would set the groundwork to help.

In parallel, Doc's agent starting sending out feelers to other teams and subsequently the Clippers reached out to Danny and gave up a 1st rd pick for him.

Nuggets took care of Booker and the Suns last night. Jokic will play in the finals.

“And so I thought we had intentions of really, really wanting to win and trying to win it, and sometimes when that happens it has a negative effect. And so I think we just have to play with a freer mind, take a deep breath, and regardless of the situation we’ve just got to be ready to play.”

“We can’t lose our perspective" "We just have to shift our perspective"

“That was our first bad game of the playoffs"

Fire this man instantly and they may have a shot at the series.

No finger pointing here ... I see 5 inviduals out there ... haphazard playing.
Celtics are getting beat by a Sixer's team that are playing as 1 ... hopefully was change soon.
I don’t follow the NBA anymore but I’ve watched the past few Celtics games and that was my exact thought…they aren't working as a team. Too many individual efforts with players standing around.

Embiid doubtful for game 1. Personally I'd rather he play. I think we've matched up well against Philly this year. Thoughts?
It's going to be a dismantle in the off season I'm projecting.. I believe brown signs with rockets.. this team as a whole looks tired, dis-interested and not playing to thier potential.. the sixes have figured out a formula to beat them. Tatum as great as he is.. the Dogg just isn't in his DNA
