Slightly sad he didnt take the free layup at the end just to get over 30, but I understand wanting to be respectful.

Is is safe to say Jaylen Brown is a better player than Tobias Harris?
[–][BOS] Jayson Tatum ExistingNail 160 指標 3小時前
He averages more points on higher efficiency and is a better defender. I'd say it's pretty clear.
[–]MEMES4DREAMS77 121 指標 3小時前
I swear people complained more about Brown’s contract even though Tobias got the max for no reason.
[–]encinoguy 32 指標 3小時前
For real, I was arguing with someone on this sub when brown got extended that his deal would prove to be better then the Tobias deal. Dude thought Tobias was worth his contract and that brown sucked and Celtics over payed him. I wonder how the dude feels now.
[–]Celtics HolyGig 6 指標 2小時前
To be fair, Tatum and Brown had a disappointing year last season. Many labeled the Brown deal an overpay when it was signed but he immediately outplayed it and averaged 20 ppg with elite defense all year. He just got overshadowed by Tatum's monster growth post all-star break
[–]TuqiDuque12 13 指標 3小時前
He seems like a great guy and he has gotten way better on defense, but man Tobi Harris just doens't cut it wether it's as the secondary playmaker, the top perimeter scorer or just a spot up guy.
He's decent at everything but not really good at anything

Jayson Tatum is the youngest Celtic with 30 points and 10 rebounds in a playoff game.

Tatum was unbelievable in the 1st half especially, he cooked us. No Simmons to deal with = bbq chicken for him on our wings.

You're right, and I hate it.
We're gonna miss so many finals in the coming decade because of the Jays, I just know it.

It was crazy when I was thinking “man, those two are so good. Boston could be tough in the playoffs this year”. And they Hayward made a great rebound pass, and 3 and then Kemba got a layup on Embiid.
This is a great fucking team
[–]Celtics halalcornflakes 55 指標 3小時前
A bit more consistency and a reliable big man who can muscle it out on the boards and this team is the real deal.
Theis is amazing but like today we get destroyed on the boards.

Im up for giving Williams more time he had a lot of energy.
[–]Raptors The_Unknown98 859 指標 3小時前
Embiid only had 15 shots, crazy how he wasn’t getting the ball in the 4th. Alec Burks took the same amount of shots as him.
[–]Raptors Magel_Bruh 23 指標 3小時前
Still had 26 points tho. They need him to score more and he needs more touches. He needs atleast 24-26 shots a game
[–]Celtics RoseOfStardust 39 指標 3小時前
Embiid should be scoring 35+ on us every game
[–]NBA kingwroth 439 指標 3小時前
Celtics were doubling him like crazy, hard to get off shots with that.
[–][BOS] Jayson Tatum pr_rajeev 10 指標 3小時前
He had good position, they don't have a good guard who can get him the ball and control the offense.
[–]76ers sensualdrywall 35 指標 3小時前
The best passer in the rotation is Horford. The best healthy passer on the team is Neto. It's hard to get embiid on the ball when the team has so few competent ball handlers and passers
[–]Celtics Wayne_Spooney 34 指標 3小時前
I’ve never seen us pressure ball handlers like that. Brad clearly knows is a weakness and are making life hell for your nominal point guard
[–]76ers sensualdrywall 34 指標 3小時前
Yeah, this was an obvious tactic for stevens coming in. I think a lot of us were expecting this. It would have been stupid not to. This is where any talk of the sixers being better without simmons is just extremely silly. He's the only guy on the team who can dribble and pass
[–]Celtics Wayne_Spooney 14 指標 3小時前
I’ll be honest I was worried that losing Simmons might be addition by subtraction for your half court offense, but 3 minutes into the game I realized that was not the case and you desperately need him.
[–]Celtics OverallPrettyGood 26 指標 3小時前
That's true, but he was also just exhausted at that point. Theis was keeping him fronted and out of the paint on his own towards the end of the game.
[–]Raptors Therealomerali 277 指標 3小時前*
There were so many times where Embiid had deep post position and he never got the ball.
In order to have a chance to win this series, Embiid needs to get way more touches and Brett Brown needs to find a way to punish the Celtics if they try doubling the post.
[–]NBA kingwroth 143 指標 3小時前
The Celtics were punished. Sixers shooters shot well despite celtics having so many good perimeter defenders.
Sixers need to stop the turnovers if they want to win.
[–]Celtics eceuiuc 118 指標 3小時前
If 33% is what counts as shooting well for the Sixers, I'd hate to see them shoot poorly.
[–]Celtics cimmanonrolls 55 指標 3小時前
they made a lot of difficult 3s. most of their shots were well contested
[–]76ers Infraction94 94 指標 2小時前
If the shots were contested then I wouldn't say we were punishing doubling embiid.
[–]76ers Pookapotamus 120 指標 3小時前
the Celtics just doubled him when he got deep in the post. It worked extremely well because everyone else on our team just stops whenever Embiid gets the ball
[–]Celtics alexm42 71 指標 3小時前
Yeah. Off ball movement goes from 60-0 the second he touches and it's a problem.

There was a possession where the Sixers were down 4 with about a 1:40 left to play where everyone on the court touched the ball except Embiid that ended with a missed shot as the clock expired, and man if that doesn't sum up what's wrong with this team.
[–][PHI] Robert Covington sjekky 15 指標 3小時前
It should be their priority to get him the ball every single possession he is in the game.
When it's the last two minutes in a close game, it shouldn't be a priority, it should be a requirement. We're like 5 years into Embiid, we know this by now.
[–][PHI] Joel Embiid B00MSHAQ 48 指標 3小時前
Well that’s the coach simple as that really
[–]76ers SlappyBagg 33 指標 3小時前
You think Brett decided to run 5 post ups in a row for Embiid to start the game and then just decided not to go back to it again?

[–]Spurs Thehelloman0 63 指標 3小時前
The celtics have done a great job at denying the ball to him. Sixers are clearly missing Simmons a lot. Reminds me of the spurs after Kawhi and Tony were hurt, we struggled to get the ball to LaMarcus in the post.
[–]Celtics LuckysBestMan 43 指標 3小時前
