On A Roll

Wowzi. That was a win last night, folks. These Celtics are something else right now. I haven't been watching much of the West's best, but I can't imagine any of them presently playing better than the C's. Certainly the competition has not been that great, but their point differential is +13, which is nothing short of phenomenal. If Glenn continues to not get in the way of the train, and if serious injuries do not beset any of the Triumvirate, watch out. This is a dynamic team, that's obvious enough, and their efficiency is such that they should be able to mask most of the flaws they have. For instance, this Posey at PF idea, which horrified me, has actually worked well - because Garnett is so big a defensive presence, or the second unit bigs cannot take advantage of Posey's smaller stature. Everything is running as smooth as a clock, it's pretty unbelievable, it's been a pleasure to watch. Let's hope it keeps up.

The are tough, san antonio should still be a big problem. The more I watch, the more I'm concerned with how they will stop tim duncan, since I'm now convinced parker and ginobili are just about as good as they come at their positions in the nba, with duncan, of course. Also, the basic c's offense still looks a bit helter skelter much of the time. It looks a lot like one of the stars goes one on one with some improv if they run into trouble, particularly at the ends of games, like the cha game. You'd think with a "dominant" big man, a pure shooter and a dynamic 3, you could run a basic O pretty easily...

Good point here. I allude to this "helter skelter" offense in my most recent post - and I wonder why it doesn't often seem like they're running a set offense.
