Things not according to plan with Nets and Celtics

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 11, 2013 at 5:15 AM

It's only two weeks in the NBA season, but so far the story hasn't matched up with the script. The Nets are 2-4 and they sit at the bottom of the East. The Celtics are 3-4, and riding a 3 game winning streak, and their riding high after Green's game winner. KG has expressed some concerns about his role with the Nets, and things just seem off.

It's early in the season, and it's natural to have some chemistry issues. But I still find it odd that the season has started this way. The Celtics in most fans, and critics eyes figured that maybe they would be 1-6 right now. Not 3-4 with a big win over Miami. The Nets have had a few bad bounces. The Celtics the same issues. But maybe once the Nets build chemistry.


Woe is KG: Kevin Garnett is shooting just 32.1 percent. He makes 2.8 field goals per game, but takes 8.8. According to NBA.com, he is just 3-for-8 in the restricted area (37.5 percent) and 12-for-34 on mid-range shots (35.3 percent). Obviously, it’s early. But when a player is 37 -- even if that player is a future Hall of Famer like KG -- you never know if you should be more concerned than you are.

I would be concerned a bit. Maybe Danny was right, and even though Danny's loylaty could be questioned. His move made a great deal of basketball sense. Pierce as expected is scoring a career low 13.7 a game, but he's also playing 28.5 minutes a night. The Nets won't have the top seed. It will be like the Celtics of old. Just make it to the playoffs.

what a weird start. Paul has played better then KG. maybe KG adapting to the change isnt easy this time around with Lopez at center. for years KG was the only true big on the celtics.

I expect the celtics to end the season around 500 so 3-4 is on schedule for me even though we've dropped a couple of games we could've won. As for the nets they aren't starting according to plan but for them J.Kidd missed the first 2 games and Deron Williams didn't get to play in training camp so they're still getting acclimated.
