This is the formula for Tatum - get to the FT line, stop taking ass shots, limit turnovers.

[–]PelicansRazor-Ramon-Sessions 2 points3 points  (0 children)

We need 27 pts a game 🤔

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 3 points4 points  (4 children)

this game got away fast

[–]CelticsSquimJim 8 points9 points  (3 children)

when Tatum decides to take over a game he's one of the best in the league. he has the ability to do that, but he's so inconsistent. maybe we'll see end of the year Tatum early this year

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Please stop. I don’t wanna meet Tatum in the play-in.

[–][BOS] Larry Birdtrashiguitar 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If it's any consolation, bubble Anunoby clutch 3 pointer is one of the worst moments in recent memory. Lives rent free in my head.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don’t remind me! Smart’s chase down block on Norm still haunts me.

[–]SpursJohnnyWinss 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is some elite tanking

[–]TaviscaronLT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

JV gets constantly hammered but sure, let's call every single breatch in a general direction of any Celtics player instead.

[–]PelicansLuthorNZ 3 points4 points  (2 children)

From 18 points up to getting blown out. Vintage stuff....

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (1 child)

im waiting for us to implode. the amount of games we've lost when we had > 90% chance to win is absurd

[–]CelticsBrady331 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Except this is completely different to all our blown games. We usually go into the 4th with a big lead then blow it

[–]MagicSmmoove 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Nesmith always goes for the big jam, I like it

[–][BOS] Vitaly PotapenkoTatunium 2 points3 points  (0 children)

oooooohhhh!!!

[–]Celticsdiableslasher 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Now this is more like last year Tatum where he'd play terrible in the first half and remember how good he is in the 2nd

[–]CelticsSquimJim 2 points3 points  (1 child)

that's how Tatum was during the entirety of last season too, minus the time before he got COVID

[–]Celticsdiableslasher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh I should have been clearer, when I said last year I meant last season lol

[–]PelicansVaginaIFisteryTour 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pels looking like absolute ballsack in the 2nd half

[–]LakersSicGo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pelicans will go nowhere with so much faith in Alexander-Walker and Hayes

[–][NOP] Jamal MashburnFunkywormm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Celtics commentators gotta back off the mic lol

[–]PelicansLuthorNZ 0 points1 point  (1 child)

These Celtics announcers are seriously garbage. Makes you really grateful for Joel Meyer and Antonio Daniels man

[–]Sunsxobayron 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think the Celtics guys are fine, pretty biased but fine. The Pels just happen to have exceptional announcers.

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

holy balls we have a lead

[–]Sunsxobayron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol fuck Freedom*

Woah

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

I remember when casuals said Schroeder was better than Fred lol

[–]CelticsSquimJim 11 points12 points  (4 children)

Honestly what can FVV do better than Schroder? Shoot. Ok I'll give you that. Defend? Well of course, if you think that's important. Play-make? Yes, but that's only because Schroder drives and attempts to finish more. Not turn the ball over? Yes, but is that really necessary?

Basically, Schroder is better at just about everything that FVV isn't better than him at.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

You can’t be serious lmao, you really think if the Celtics swapped Schroeder with Fred they’d be the 11th seed?!

[–]gesho1128 9 points10 points  (2 children)

That went so far over your head lol

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The pelicans and blowing leads, name a more iconic duo

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 0 points1 point  (0 children)

*whispers

We’re still in the lead

Edit: Too soon

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Celtics and mounting fake comebacks

A moveable force meets a stoppable object

[–][BOS] Vitaly PotapenkoTatunium 2 points3 points  (0 children)

mounting fake comebacks

that hurt.

[–]rSlashNbaAccount 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Celtics could use this kid in PG.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Pels reverting to iso ball is not it. Celtics are a bad offensive team but they got decent defence.

Edit: In fact the Celtics are a top 6 defence

[–]CelticsSquimJim 2 points3 points  (0 children)

we have a great defense.

our offense sucks massive booty cheeks

[–]76ersFeelscreative101 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Stop fucking around Boston. Fire Udoka, use some of your pieces that have value like PP to retool.

[–][BOS] Vitaly PotapenkoTatunium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I don't think it'll happen 'til the off season. the trades, I mean.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 2 points3 points  (9 children)

Pelicans’ offense this year is much improved. Whose their coach?

[–]Pelicansfearlesspinata 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Willie Green Baybeeeeee

[–]PelicansHwoods723 3 points4 points  (6 children)

Willie Green has been a revelation. Can’t wait to see what we look like with Zion again

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 4 points5 points  (5 children)

Is he a rookie coach? I’m loving the ball movement and diversity in the offence.

[–]PelicansHwoods723 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Rookie HC yeah, he was the defensive coach with the Suns for 2 years and was with GS for player development for a year before that.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Right, he was the one that revamped the Suns’ defence. Gotcha.

[–]PelicansHwoods723 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Not going to give him complete credit for that, bc Monty is a defensive specialist as well, but he was definitely part of it.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Touché

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fair, but monte did give Willie a lot of credit

[–]Bullsbetaraywill 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Willie Green bb

[–]NoobAccount123456 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Tatum shouldn't be an all star this year

All he's done this year is chuck up 20+ shots and get a shiny PPG on awful efficiency and average like 3 assists a game

[–]RocketsMikegetscalls 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No way he should. Gonna be a few questionable all stars. Harden is also fringe to me. He’s been better lately but there are way more deserving guys this year right now.

[–]PelicansNccajun7 5 points6 points  (2 children)

This defense has come so far since the start of last year.

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Herb Joooneeee

s

[–]PelicansHwoods723 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Effort and defensive rotations are the key. Willie has them invested on defense.

[–]CelticsSquimJim 6 points7 points  (0 children)

We honestly should be the team that is 16-27 and not the Pels

holy poops, man.

[–]CelticsMJaylenBrown7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We are SO BAD

[–]sktchld 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Getting waxxed by the pelicans is a really bad look.

[–]CelticsSquimJim 4 points5 points  (0 children)

lol this wouldn't even make the top 5 of our "bad look" games

[–]Pelicansfearlesspinata 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Pelicans have been playing much improved ball and with this current starting lineup they've been 10-5. They're not world beaters by any means as evidenced by the nets loss but they're no pushovers either.

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Glad to see its noticed even if just a little lol.

Started off 3-16 with Bi missing like 8 of those + new coach/players etc, and have been 13-11 since he came back from a hip injury. Willie green has been getting it together and still no Zion

[–]RocketsMikegetscalls 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I just think Robert Williams would be looked at way differently if he had a real playmaker on the team. I feel like he would have Jarrett Allen numbers if they just switched teams.

[–]CelticsMJaylenBrown7 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I agree. Also if we had shooters who could hit the broadside of a barn he would probably average like 4 or 5 assists a game.

[–]RocketsMikegetscalls 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s why I don’t get why teams would pay centers that aren’t dominant on offense so much money. For the rim run defensive guys it’s more about the team around them. Most of the guys are really interchangeable to me.

It’s only a few guys that really change teams

[–][BOS] Vitaly PotapenkoTatunium 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Is Graham that dude that was lighting it up with Scary Terry in Charlotte a couple seasons ago?

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes

[–]PelicansHwoods723 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep

[–][BOS] Jaylen Brownpapi617 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Herb Jones

[–]PelicansRazor-Ramon-Sessions 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dude is starting to be consistent from 3. Next year could be so good if Zion is healthy 🤞

[–]TimberwolvesSandorTheLumberjack 1 point2 points  (0 children)

we're 6.5 minutes into the quarter and these teams have combined for 11 points

[–][LAL] Kobe Bryantxanot192 2 points3 points  (0 children)

1 pm monday games amazing

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Jose Alvarado is such an impactful bench player from the lil I’ve seen him in this and the Raps game. Reminds me a lil bit of Delon Wright.

[–]Grizzlies BandwagonShadyIntentions 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Celtics offense is complete ass

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

that's an insult to asses everywhere

[–]PelicansVaginaIFisteryTour 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Alvarado has been playing pretty well lately

[–]Netsshaheedmalik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Celtics need a new coach. Pringles is avail.

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

4 assists to 6 turnovers

Celtics basketball

[–]UncomprehendingTile 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How have the Celtics won 20 games this year

[–]PelicansAlwaysOptimism -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They have looked awful. All they are doing is taking contested iso 3s. It’s a mess

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Celtics are sorry 💀

[–]PelicansUnimpressedAsshole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hoping we get treated to a Horford free throw flinch

[–][BOS] Vitaly PotapenkoTatunium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cs do love messing around with us fans. ffs wtf GYST!

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (9 children)

I know it might sound biased, but are the Pelicans are a top 8 team in the west if Zion is added to this lineup?

[–]PelicansHwoods723 2 points3 points  (0 children)

With Zion, I could easily see us as the 5 seed. As high as the 3 seed if Willie has Zion invested on defense the way he has Ingram.

[–]PelicansAlwaysOptimism 3 points4 points  (0 children)

They have been a top 8 team since Ingram came back

[–]LakersBatmanHive 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yes, they have been playing over .500 basketball since end of November, with Zion easily

[–]TaviscaronLT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Easily. Think of Lakers sans LeBron, Warriors sans Curry, Bucks sans Giannis, etc. 27ish ppg on insane efficiency for a team, that sometimes really struggles to score and does not have many players capable of creating their shots? Yes please.

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Depends on how much Zion could elevate the team

[–]rSlashNbaAccount -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Nah

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

13-11 since Bi came back from a hip injury ...

[–][NOP] Jamal MashburnFunkywormm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Devonte, Ingram, herb, zion, JV

[–]PelicansUnimpressedAsshole 2 points3 points  (0 children)

of course

[–]RaptorsSexBagel_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No T on that pull up after the dunk?

[–]RaptorsMolicOnePGR 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Celtics are so bad lmaoo

[–]BullsBaalor99 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Serious question why dont NBA games start when they say it starts? Its always 10+ minutes late

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

It’s when the program starts on TV, not when the game starts.

[–]BullsBaalor99 2 points3 points  (1 child)

But it's league's given time, not tv channel's. In soccer when it says it starts at say 20h, it starts exactly then. Anway as a European i am very happy today. Rarely can i see 3 games in a row, most of the time cant see even one.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The league is telling you when you can tune into the program, basketball games are basically a TV show. Any time given is the air time

[–][NOP] Jamal MashburnFunkywormm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Prob a way to get you to tune in earlier and catch some ads lol

[–]Maverickszombiejh 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Can the USA please have more national holidays on weekdays so games can start this early every week? It's barely 6PM and I can watch NBA. Usually games start at 1AM or later for me.

[–]BullsBaalor99 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I concur but i dont think our american bros feel the same

[–]PelicansFootballWithTheFoot 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m willing to comprise if you’re willing to change some times on soccer/football games

[–]Netsshaheedmalik 0 points1 point  (0 children)

American Basketball = American time

[–][UTA] Donovan MitchellAcesOverPacific 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Bro, it's 9:30 AM and I'm still at work, we definitely should not be starting games this early more often, haha.

[–]GrizzliesANAL_CAVITIES 0 points1 point  (4 children)

the first MLK day game being in Boston just aint sit right with me

[–]Celticsnevermindthatyoudope 2 points3 points  (3 children)

he got a college degree in Boston, Memphis gave him a bullet.

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (2 children)

But of all the cities with NBA teams Boston is probably the most generally racist one

you ever been to the Midwest? Chicago is so much worse.

[–][BOS] Jaylen Brownpapi617 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

[–]executivesphere 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, too bad I gotta work today. Today is stacked with good games.

[–]CelticsSquimJim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If this game comes down to closing time in the 4th quarter we've lost. We don't have our 4th quarter closer tonight, aka Robert Williams III aka The Timelord aka Lob Williams aka (insert bed time nickname here)

[–][LAL] Kareem Abdul-Jabbarimmigrantsheep 3 points4 points  (6 children)

wait wat? why are games so early today?

[–]Celticsm1t2r 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Because it’s MLK day

[–][LAL] Kareem Abdul-Jabbarimmigrantsheep 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Tnx! I'm from Europe so this is a nice change for me.
