Giving credit where it is due, Danny Ainge is an excellent GM.  He's built a solid roster that would have owned the East and at least been competitive in the finals without injuries.  Trade down to take Tatum and get a draft pick, trade aging stars for high draft picks, pull the trigger on the Kyrie deal at just the right time, unloading an overachiving IT and weakening an opponent all in one move.  Recent FA signings of Horford and Baynes.  

 

The Celtics are still sitting on a mountain of draft picks (4 first round picks next year) and tradeable young talent.

 

And Stevens ... he's the reason they have gotten this far.

 

Young talent, excellent coach and draft picks.  Hard to pull that off.  

 

Credit to Danny Ainge is certainly deserved, but at the same time, the NETS franchise is so TRASH!

 

3 first round draft picks traded for 2 declining All-Stars in Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnet.  That will probably go down as one of the biggest heist in history.  What Ainge did with those picks though is even better.

Not to mention the pick swap + lack of protection on all those picks.

Holding Rockets to under 90 points is pretty damn impressive.

 

Love how pretty much anyone on GS can get a rebound (or a pass off a rebound) and either ball handle down the court or make a pass to a teammate in better position to do something.

 

How many minutes has zaza or javelle even played this series. 

Not many


Praying for  1. Some Cohesion (Ill fitting parts with young bucks, new guys, and those playing for next contracts may muck things up all season) 2. Better Coaching, No More Tanking (Last season was more of the latter but not sure how much of the former we can count on. Walton with something to prove this season as much as any Laker player) 3. Rookie Watch (Hoping Lonzo outshines his daddy (ROTY??), and Kuzma finds minutes and makes a push for all rook 2nd team)

READY FOR SEASON!!!

great game last night...hoping this goes 7

 

harden continues to disappoint when the [expletive] really hits the fan though, and that's a bit concerning

 

cp3 continues to be one of my favorite players going today

Never saw anyone so unhappy (CP3) after a HUGE win.

 

If he plays any more games this playoffs i'd be very surprised.

Got to be hurting bad after that fall.

While the supporting cast was never up to it either, you could almost count on a CP3 injury during the POs while he was a Clipper.  That roster was built like a house of cards, and CP3 was a part of that.  Despite his history, Houston bet he could avoid injury at critical times, not looking good right now.  It would be a shame if he is done for the season, I love watching GSW get challenged.

I like that he wasn't beaming.  It's just one win in a series, nowhere near the goal they have in mind.  I don't want my players happy or jumping around after one win.  If/when you win the whole thing and accomplish your goal, then you can be happy.  Until then, it's just another day at work.  A better day for sure, but nothing to freak out about.
