CSNNE.com's A. Sherrod Blakely breaks down the Celtics loss to the Bucks.
To box were very it we're not very gracious fascinates right. No not at all -- let's start with the Celtics offense totally anemic especially -- Spurs have Paul Pierce. Picking up three -- only twelve points and the second quarter and it's not like. Milwaukee plays the greatest defense in the NBA the Celtics were just out of -- That's up to assistant coach Kevin Eastman during the game and he told me basically we just don't have any rhythm and how you get rhythm. It's by moving the ball -- the Celtics did do that and also by getting stops. Celtics didn't do that either and that's why they are now only two -- Doc Rivers after the game. I'm upset concern them all those probably. You know. -- we just I don't see urgency yet. At times than we thought we would. Sure because we have a lot of players on the team and that would mean we would win when you make this really changes I think our guys. That Dennis Daniel taveras invested into the team to become a team. They can learn to lose just go to. You know coming. -- more interest. Sort of way. -- -- -- There's no longer period. Which is -- a garden be the aggressor. We're back out here alive at the garden with the Celtics insider -- -- -- lately and former Celtic himself Brian Scalabrine and Scott got to start with you. The start as celtics' defense because the the second straight game. Teams were able to do whatever they wanted Alley oops dunks -- open looks was the problem. On the active you got to give their coverages down and obviously you one thing is in the pick and roll they were hitting the ball in isolation your -- -- You have -- better have some. Next thing that was the most glaring thing that was disappointing to lose thirty points in the third quarter after. You have to know that stock lead into the team and I'm sure they Garnett -- -- -- -- the team as well he can't come out and give up thirty points in the quarter to team like. Milwaukee Bucks trying to establish yourself that you champion. -- throughout the bucks have lost five straight season openers they shoot 46 and half percent for the game. Actually not that great but that percentage went down in the fourth quarter what did you see from the celtics' defense. Beth I -- at this system and this is patently bad losses in so many ways and I think there's there's a tendency is to blame. The new guys that because of new guys and just felt that this is not just them and this is a team wide problem this is what happens when you have a lot of guys. Who are more offensive minded throughout their careers it takes them longer to minds is not going to buy into the system let them understand. How to play. Doc Rivers defense and I think again. We're -- lob winners and things like this before these guys finest try to stuff we've become a Celtics deepest that -- become -- expect we'll scouts talked about pick and roll defense Brandon Jennings had a field day. -- I totally out played Rajon Rondo in this game 21 points also -- there's what thirteen times as well. To me he was the difference in the game right from the get go. Well you know when I watch him play it reminds me of Vince Carter in his prime as far as being a point guard birds of a bad shot maker a lot of assassin he makes. Are very unconventional kind of quirky. I mean you. 1214 put runners at the when he -- it from from an angle makes those so this is a little bit alone an -- a source put. That doesn't lead of the fact that he was able to get to the hole I was -- to get to look through the lane whenever he wanted to and that. This is necessary a defense doesn't run he knows that. Scalp quickly growing to over in LA people are had a team because the Lakers were only two coming into this went. What about the Celtics and mean. Is just gonna take some time quickly obviously there's no need to panic or rip throwing to him and they know there's things they have to work on. I think the biggest thing is what is their identity of their running gun team it's gonna go small. Against Hewitt so -- I've done in the past which -- go being in the game and as soft as we'll figure out.
