Didn't watch the game but sounds like a decent 2nd half from a piss poor 1st round. The Jay brothers led the way and Kornet provided some spark off the bench

It's a small sample size, but it feels like we did get better at the trade deadline (at least from a chemistry perspective, and good to get Teague off the books)

Think Ainge has done all right actually.

Ainge ain't the problem folks, it's ******* Brad Stevens aka Mike Datoni lite.

If ownership cannot see this, well then we have no hope.

Back to square one we go. No Brown & a putrid debut from Fournier didn’t help matters, but to get blown out of the water in the 3rd after regaining the lead was piss poor.

Grant Williams is a dud. Don’t ever start him again ffs.

I think it's a mixture of both Ainge and Stevens.

Ainge hasn't put the right pieces around the stars and stevens doesn't have a defence system.

This team is really doing my head in.

I swear the only player that plays like he doesn't want to lose is Smart. Everyone just seems not bothered when we lose and it's frustrating as to watch.

We were a bit undermanned, esp with Time Lord out,and we have to accept we won't make the playoffs and big changes are coming this off season (many Celtics beat writers on Twitter believe Kemba will be traded this off season)

We also had a couple of sh*t calls go against this vs the Mavs. Inclined not to worry too much about this loss, it's the bigger picture stuff that worries me.

Same old script again. Get blown away in one qtr with the token comeback in the last. Stevens is & has always been clueless in halting opposition runs.

Hope we miss playoffs & blowtorch is firmly put on him.

Can't see it happening with the Owneŕs, Ainge has too much power at the Celtics, he will decide if Stevens goes or not.

Our version of Petyr Littlefinger really

Which coach is out there that you would replace stevens with?

Hayward seems a very big loss definitely made a mistake letting him go.

Well this just abt it for us for the season now. What an embarrassment we are.

Jaylen Brown’s had 5 FGA’s in nearly 3qtrs after 8 1st qtr pts? Wtf is going on there?

53 and 10 for JT, admittedly against the worst team in the league and in O/T.

Shining light on a fairly dismal performance by the team but I will take the W.

Big game against Portland we win this and we would be back on track for a good playoff spot and have some momentum going into the last stretch of the season.

You said it brah.

Got a little Dicey in the end. But it was a very solid wIn on the road. Tatum, Kemba and Smart all huge.

Bad mouth Ainge all you want, but even though we got not much in return, we seem to playing with a lot more rhythm and on court chemistry without Theis.

This is our best run of form all season.

Starting the timelord was the key all along.

Echo comments from you boys above. Was a big game for us on the back of the win @ denver & if we can grab the W in LA on friday, it’ll set us up for a big home stand to really push for 4th.

We’re a completely different side with Timelord starting & TT giving him good support off the bench.

Weird as it sounds, I would prefer it if we were in the West instead of the East come play off.

Feels like we match up well (Esp on the road) against West Contenders than East
