morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here…
highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as
satisfying as a good morning dump.
“I think we think we’re better than what we are,’’ he said. “We get a
lead and we feel like we can just put it on cruise. In the NBA you
can’t do that, and we’ve never done that and that’s what’s troubling to
me. But it’s clear right now when we get a lead, we go to individual
ball, guys trying to get numbers and just loss of focus.’’
Man this is crazy!!!! Its like everyone is looking for the staples easy button instead of just doing their job and just play.
We playing like a wounded animal instead of an animal that's cornered with their back against the wall!!!
How can a team who has lost to the 76ers, Clippers, Warriors and Pistons be overconfident? How can a team with so many veterans play without focus?
I'm not sure this can be fixed. These guys say all the right things after a horrible performance, but never change any of their bad habits. What's that popular definition of insanity – Repeating the same action but expecting a different outcome?
Read the comments in our post game blog. Everyone gets blame. Scal, TA, Doc's substitution pattern, Ray Allen, Perk, Rondo… it's evident the fans are pissed off.
On Page 2, Glen Davis apologizes for his profanity.
A Pistons fan, whose taunting triggered an obscene epithet from
Celtics forward Glen Davis during a second-quarter timeout last night,
placed a complaint with NBA security during halftime.
Davis now faces a possible fine and suspension. His comments were
made in close range of microphones from both the Celtics’ TV and radio
broadcasts, and could reportedly be easily heard by viewers and
Davis, repeatedly called “fat boy” and then “chubs” by a fan who
identified himself as Scott Zack, declined comment after the game, but
later posted his regrets on Twitter.com
“I’m a tough competitor and I’m proud of the work I’ve done to get
in shape and be at the top of my game,” Davis said in his first tweet.
He added in a second tweet, “That said, I shouldn’t have said what I did. My apologies to my fans and my teammates.”
Glen Davis needs to get his head in shape. From the preseason fight with a friend that injured his thumb to last night's embarrassing comment, it's evident Davis has a lot of growing up to do. Last night's mental lapse might also cost him time on the court.
