A. Sherrod Blakely wants more evidence before concluding the Celtics have turned the corner; Thursday vs the Clippers is a good test
Thanks so much we are outside the Staples Center Sharaud we've seen it. A number of times this year the Celtics Kamal played very well and we think okay. This is it they've gotten over the hump they did that yesterday. Against Brooklyn youth minor Solomon right now. I am not -- this team and I think. -- for me to feel comfortable that they have indeed turned the corner. They're gonna have to do more than win 23 games in program to put together 4567. Straight wins and we've seen him play well and and stretches. Extending more than just a couple games but they've failed to consistently win. And that is let's be honest that's what is so this game is all about. They need to run like the Clippers are close to -- who -- believe that the Los Angeles Clippers. -- to be hottest team in the NBA it about the Lakers -- the Clippers. Did you think they would be this good this early in the season. No I mean I fear that at the very least they would be the city chance because they're they're better team in the league and improving. But they're one of the best teams in the NBA and get it done with a lot of different guys who you think about this team you always think about Blake Griffin -- -- and Chris Paul. It's kind of one of those rules stealth like MVP type season. And we look at the fact that they're winning you look at the fact he's the best player on the team. Look at the fact that come playoff time they probably have one of the best clutch playoff run and chose to build. Also at the disposal this could be a very very dangerous team and we'll see if the Celtics wanna compete with teams like the Clippers like Miami like New York. They need more from bench players they need more consistent play from Jeff Green -- -- on your what you like out of soldier yesterday. Consistency I. I thought you know there was not a single point in the game where. You seem to feel as though his offense was like him and his defense or vice Versa he was a solid plus. Asked him whether the fact that the last time he was in that building he got benched for the that was added motivation of are -- more consistent and that's the and don't believe that there are no other coaches brought to readers that you remember what happened the last time you ask me laughter. Anyway it was impressive to me he's the reds played what happened the last thing was just not have happened and he understands they will be better. Tonight Celtics will shoot around tomorrow and Los Angeles. Avery Bradley not with the team not expected to join them here in Los Angeles. Golden State or in Sacramento hopefully he'll play on January 2 back in Boston for -- -- I'm Greg.
