Sam Mitchell's favourite 4th quarter move seems to be to leave in a bench player far too long, then bring in a starter cold for a play or two and have them shoot. Juan Dixon in crunch time not even being able to catch the ball and feed Bosh in the post cause hes a midget = not cool

1. Sam Mitchell cannot coach and we will never win a title with him as head coach.

Not having a championship caliber team is slightly more important imo.

Well yeah, I'm not saying we're close to winning a title, I'm just saying that Sam's inconsistent and unorthodox coaching ways will probably never put us over the hump.

What do you guys think the effect of no Doc Rivers was on the game? I thought the Celts had some good play calls in OT: iso Garnett against Bosh on the right block on 3 straight possessions (2 jumpshots and a TO, I believe) and the final play was a nice set up for Allen... Could Doc have turned the tide in our favor?

Things observed from this game:

1. Sam Mitchell cannot coach and we will never win a title with him as head coach.

2. I know he made the shot, but TJ Ford should never, ever attempt a game tying/winning 3. And letting him do that is so f'n stupid.

There are 2 constants in Toronto that will never change. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

1)Sam Mitchell could lead us to a NBA championship and the city would STILL think he's a terrible coach.

2)When the game is on the line at the dying minutes, TJ ford WILL ALWAYS take the final shot no matter how badly he's covered. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Really? I thought it was a terribly coached game from both ends. I don't think I've ever seen so many shot clock violations in a game. KG made 3 or 4 very tough shots in OT. Had he missed one of them the game could have went the other way.
The final play with 4 secs left was very clever. Allen is a veteran and used KG to get into the open to make the shot. Clearly we'll see a lot of this out of the Celts in the future. KG is just too dangerous to have just AP guarding him.

I don't think Toronto had a single shot clock violation but I could be wrong. As for Boston's at least 3 SCVs, I attribute that to solid D by the Raps.

Yeah...hopefully we can come back strong tonight and make that horrifying performance an anomaly.

4 games in 5 nights...should be interesting.

I expect the Raptors to [censored] the bed a few more times on the road, and that at the end of the season their record at home will be ridic good.
