9th straight year

30th out of 32.

Go, Celts!!!!

its been awhile since last finals appearance, but generally they've been fun to watch over the past decade.

this year they were a disappointment.

what does the 30th of 32 refer to?

30th year missing Finals.

of the past 32, got it.

I guess you take note of different benchmarks than I do.

I would view it as they've made the play-offs 22  of the past 32.

and 11 of the past 12.

But i'm a glass half-full type guy.

But as you said,

GO CELTS.

Wouldn't you say Yanks have won just one time in last 18 years?

I wouldn't say as I don't know.

And have given it zero thought.

Is Cleveland the tank you are referring to?

Kawhi missed a long 3 and then got blocked in the last 2 mins.
Kawhi also was overly methodical in the 2nd half, and often had 3 guys around him when he tried to maneuver.  Looked like tired legs to me.  Ya got 2 or 3 defenders on you there's open guys out there.

Apparently outside of Lowry and Kawhi, Raps only made one other 2nd half FG.  Maybe that explains not passing.

Brogdon had a nice impact.  15 points and a +10.

Both G1's were somewhat sloppy affairs with miscues and missed shots.  Mistakes on O & D aplenty.
Made for interesting games.

But let's hope the play picks up, and things get sharper on both ends in both series.

Did someone here say that POR's backcourt = GS backcourt ...?

So would BOS have been better off trading Hey Gordy as I had proposed.  Would have sorted out roles better, and not had to work back in a recovering guy who had lots of ups and downs all season.  And now at his salary, you have to wonder how trade-able Haywire is.

The goofy rule that prevented the Kyrie-Celts from adding AD, might have been a league changing/shaping technicality.  Kyrie might be leaving now instead of having a super-friend in BOS.  AD might not go anywhere now that the Promised Land has appeared in NOLA. Etc.

Mccollum averages 23 points over his last 32 playoff games.  40% on threes.

Trading Gordo off the injury/lost year would have been impractical, wouldn't have looked good and probably not have yielded close to par value.

He was Brad's boy, and no way Brad was going to bail on him after he lost the year "(17-18).  And most teams would want to see if he was good Gordo before picking up 3 yrs and a $90+ million comittment. 

He started to get better the last month of the season, but that series against the Bucks he was really tentative.

But even when he sucked, he played smart ball.

I could see him getting moved this year. If KI leaves, and the #1 opens up,  maybe Gordo gets swapped to Memphis for Mike Conley.

Conley is on a similar contract as Gordo (2/66) is 2 years older and is about to become redundant as Memphis is going to draft Ja Morant.

So maybe they take a shot at a former all-star wing bwho might regain his game, as they start their rebuild?

Addition by subtraction.  As Gordy's comeback year left a trio of BOS yute disgruntled (probably Morris as well).  So the team would have gotten better by not having to baby Haywire back to prominence, and they would have gotten decent value.  I don't think his value went up after that season of okayness.

Wasn't Brad's call.  And sentiment isn't how you win.
If Gordo was jettisoned, it would have made Brad's job easier and more players would have been on board.  The Gordy affair, plus Kyrie's individualism, undermined Brad's message/authority.
Could have been a different season.

Mccollum averages 23 points over his last 32 playoff games.  40% on threes.

Klay 19 Pts on 41% on 3's in the 2019 playoffs.
And a much better and more versatile defender than McCollum.

Lillard & McCJ are damn good players, but haven't reached the levels Scurry & Klay have.  And playoff experience is part of that equation.
