The Best 13 Boston Celtics Products, Period

The Boston Celtics had their chances in Game 3 against the Bucks on Saturday.

There was the possession with roughly a nanosecond remaining when they led by one and missed two wide-open 3- pointers — one each by Al Horford and Marcus Smart — which would have forced the Bucks to consider some form of offense other than Giannis Antetokounmpo barreling down the lane. They nearly took the lead back when Jaylen Brown beat his man to the handbasket, but Brown smoked an actually delicate (but make-suitable) layup. They nearly got three free throws when Smart did this (the officers only awarded him two).

In the end, the Celtics could n’t overcome Jayson Tatum’s 4-for-19 firing performance, and they could n’t overcome Giannis Antetokounmpo’s 42 points.
After a game like that, it’s easy to project a Celtics win assuming Tatum does n’t continue to shoot that inadequately, and assuming Antetokounmpo does n’t score 42 again. The problem with the playoffs, still, is that the Celtics are now standing on the point. Sure, Tatum presumably wo n’t shoot 4-for-19 again, but the Celtics no longer have any periphery for error.

Ime Udoka sounded to decide that censuring the officers’ decision to not give Smart three free throws was well worth a forfeiture.
“ It was a foul,” Udoka said. “ He caught the ball, he was turning into his shot, both bases set. You ca n’t say that’s a reach when you ’re going into a shot. Poor call, poor no- call.

“ You can easily see it. I saw it in person, but also on film. I just went and looked at. It’s a shot. He’s curling into the shot, he’s getting fouled on the way over. Bad missed call.”
“ I guess being a little reluctant, passing, just trying to make plays for the guys,” Tatum said. “ I just got to be better in that aspect of just making the right play.

“ I did n’t play my stylish moment and we still had a great chance to win. So, nothing we can do about moment. Rest up, watch some film and just get ready for Monday.”

Udoka is nearly clearly right — there’s veritably little (if any) reach stir to Smart’s shot. Smart clearly sounded to anticipate that the Bucks planned to foul and tried to take advantage, but if a platoon is going to take advantage by fouling up three, the opposing platoon should presumably be allowed to grift right along with them.

  1. The Celtics had a chance because of Al Horford, who made a series of pivotal shots down the stretch as they rallied en route to 22 points and 16 rebounds. With Grant Williams in foul trouble and Rob Williams sidelined after taking a shot to the head, Horford was excellent in a more featured part.
  2. The Celtics need to avoid letting Brown get switched onto Antetokounmpo, which is how the Bucks star got a lot of his easiest points in the fourth quarter. Brown had an excellent game and was pivotal down the stretch as Tatum plodded to find his shot, but Antetokounmpo is too altitudinous and his strides are too long. Both Brown and Tatum struggle mightily whenever Antetokounmpo manages to force a switch — whether that’s because they do n’t have the physical mass to stop him, or because Antetokounmpo’s drives are violent and the Celtics have instructed their stars to get out of the way is a little unclear.
  3. Wesley Matthews played phenomenal defense against Tatum, but the Celtics need to figure out a way to get their own megastar going. As good as Matthews is on the protective end, the Celtics need further from Tatum to have a chance.
    A near look at Tatum’s shots does n’t exactly reveal the problem. He settled on a many different occasions, but several of hismid-range minidresses rimmed out, his 3- point aesthetics were decent by his norms, and he could n’t indeed score with touch around the hem. As good as Matthews was, Tatum sounded to be missing shots further than being made to miss shots.
    “ I guess being a little reluctant, passing, just trying to make plays for the guys,” Tatum said. “ I just got to be better in that aspect of just making the right play and reading it more. …
    “ I did n’t play my stylish moment and we still had a great chance to win. So, nothing we can do about moment. Rest up, watch some film and just get ready for Monday.”
