The Good,the Bad,and the Ugly: Game 11 vs the Pistons

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 19, 2012 at 7:00 AM


The Good


:D What was good from the 103-83 loss to the Pistons? Well KG played just 20 minutes. Rondo still played 38 minutes, because the streak was on the line. So Doc let him keep the streak alive. So what else was a standout performance, or stat from the Pistons game? Sully played well gain. After getting is first career double-double. Sully put in  a career high 16 points, and 5 solid rebounds. I really have nothing else from this loss that can be taken as something good.



The Bad


:/ The Pistons had 20 fastbreak points compared to the Celtics 4 points. The one man fastbreak Rondo didn't get the speed game going. Doc tried  small  ball, way to late in the game, and I think it wouldn't have mattered.


:( The Celtics lead the NBA with 25 plus assist a game as a team. Against the Pistons the Celtics only had 12 assists, and Rondo had 10 of those 12 assists. Pierce,KG, and others didn't really move the ball that well. But the Celtics missed many jumpers that they normally make. So that assist number could have been higher.


:( Points in the paint 44-30 Pistons. Monroe, and Maxiell played very well. They scored 35 points combinded, and it seemed like more. The Celtics have been rocked inside the paint this season. The interior defense must improve.


The Ugly


:mad: Rebounding, what a surprise. The Pistons had 39 compared to the Celtics 30. Wilcox,and Sully did well with a total of 10 rebounds. Five apiece from Sully, and Wilcox to be exact. The ugly part of this game was the simple lack of urgency. I feel like they did what they could have, but I also know more could have been stopped.

Doc should have sat KG, Pierce and Terry down and gone with the young ones plus Rondo

I think Doc should have a back to back lineup. Because the old guys can't even beat the Pistons on a second night. Play Sully,Lee,Green if he plays hard, Rondo,and Wilcox.

For goodness sake, isn't that why we have so much depth? so we can handle the grind? PLAY THEM DOC!!

But I have to say that I think some of it isn't Doc's fault, in that Green and Lee have underachieved.

Is it Doc's fault they have underachieved? I say yes.

I wonder. Why else does it always end up like this, with us being dependent on three old guys plus Rondo?

The Spurs make it work. Will see them Wednesday, maybe Doc will have his note book.

It seems to me that the spurs have Parker constantly pushing the tempo and attacking the middle. Shouldn't we do that more with Rondo?
