Glen Davis ate his Wheaties…

Chuck - Red's Army February 16, 2010 Uncategorized 13 Comments on Glen Davis ate his Wheaties…

The Celtics lead the Kings 57-52 at the half.

The bench has 34 of the Celtics 57 points.

Glen Davis is playing like a maniac – 6 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. Sheed has 10 points on 4-4 shooting while Eddie House has drained three 3s.

Let's hope the starters wake the hell up, or else we'll be bitching about another 3rd quarter collapse.

There's a good chance you won't find a post game recap, because I have to rest up for Thursday night's big game vs the Lakers. That means all our young readers will be responsible for updating the game within the comments.

    Very happy the C’s pulled it out tonight… but the fact that we had to just pull it out at the end is scary. No third quarter collapse, thankfully. Evans is gonna be scary in a season or two, though.
    At the end I’m glad that the Kings apparently wanted to lose this game more than we did with four missed free throws in a row.

  • Jason

    32 second half points (discounting 6 FTs in the last 15 seconds of foul swapping). Against the Kings no less. Doesn’t that tell you enough about the state of this team?
    This sucks. Where’s the team from November/December? Where? This is their new established level. They’re mediocre. Something has to change or there’s no reason to reasonably expect a title this year.

  • DRJ

    Lucky win. Kings missed 8 of 10 FTs in the end.
    Still, some good news:
    – Sheed has completely turned his game around in the past 2 games. He’s posting up more, running harder, defending harder, rebounding harder. All great news.
    – Eddie’s shot is back to normal.
    – Davis worked his tail off, mostly with good results (till the 4th quarter).
    The bad news:
    – Perks stinks. He really, really stinks. Nothing but turnovers and missed bunnies and scowls for the refs. And he looks… unhappy.
    – KG. Oh KG. Stuffed 2-3 times. Lateral movement way down. The man looks… defeated. Bad news for the Cs, if this keeps up.
    – Paul is just not as good as he thinks he is. He’s got this weird misplaced overconfidence thing going on. When Rondo was talking about “agendas”… I believe it was Paul he was mostly talking about.
    Overall, a forgettable win. Bench was mostly great. Starters not. If they play like this going forward, it’s gonna be a long hard road the playoffs.

    I am NOT happy with this win. The bench looked great, Sheed played extremely well especially. However, the starters continue to look terrible. The Kings are a horrible defensive team, and yet the starters played like they were facing the Cavs. Its hard to put a finger on it, but nothing is coming easy for that unit. It looks like they are playing as if their individual talents can snap them out of a lull (i.e. Pierce trying to drain mid-range J’s to break a draught) when that clearly hasn’t been the case since at least the beginning of the season. It looks like nothing has changed after the all-star break, which is downright scary.

  • Scott

    And I totally agree with your comments on KG. When he got blocked by Thomson in the late 4th quarter, it almost looked as if he were going up expecting to be blocked. He simply struggles to finish down low now. Sad to watch.

  • Double P Reppin the B

    The problem with the starters is obvious to me. They cannot score. KG and Perk getting easily stuffed time in and time out under the basket. Ray missing so many shots he usually makes. Pierce not attacking and/or finishing like he used too. They really can’t score, they get easy looks and can’t get the ball in the basket.
    And the defense is very questionable, combined with loads of struggles scoring and you make it real hard on yourself to win.
    If they hit even half the easy shots that would normally go down we win by double digits. But they can’t score and could this really be just age? It’s so strange

  • Shawn-cvd

    A win is a win. Good news (spin if you will)
    Our bench played very well. Davis, Quis and (gasp!) Sheed played like they cared. I want 80% of Sheeds touches to start with him on the blocks. The starters will not be crapping the bed forever.
    KG, Ray Ray and Truth limited to 33 minutes or less. Rest and protection is what the Big Old Three need in preparation for the post season. Doc trusts our bench enough now that they’ll get that rest.
    Game preview had the Kings scouted as a better rebounding team than us. They only topped us by 3.
    Lastly we held them to 38 second half points. Had we cared in the first quarter then we would have won handily.
    My few concerns are all those missed/blocked lay ups and Perk’s continued funk.

  • Lee in Oregon

    Sac-town has some nice young players, but they suck…and they shoulda won this game. Same old story….the starters couldnt hold the lead in the 2nd half. There were signs of life though.
    KG is getting his shit blocked almost as much as Davis, it’s getting hard to watch. I seriously wouldnt be surprised if he hangs it up before the contract runs out. He’s got white guys from Israel blocking his shot now and EVERYONE in the league is just going at him and scoring. It’s like they all want revenge for him jamming it down thier throats for 12 solid years…
    That was the “easy game” on this trip and they were incredibly lucky to get a W.

  • Shawn-cvd

    I agree. That’s why I want us to get a potent scorer for Allen. Put the pressure off our starting unit. Let Rajon get steals, KG talk out our defense, Paul shoot threes/ spread the floor/get to the free throw line, and Perk Beast up opposing centers.

  • Shawn-cvd

    I mean “take the pressure off”

  • PaulPierceWannaBeGangsta

    Wait….”resting up” for the game vs. The Lakers?
    Are you suiting up?

  • Yawn
    they say theres no such thing as a bad win…eh this was close

  • Rav

    In fairness, a lot of the Sacramento blocks were fouls on our guys, especially Casspi’s chasedown on Pierce, which got no ball at all.
    KG is looking better than before the break. Although not regaining his movement, he isn’t favouring the leg anymore. He made one quick move to the basket, which I was happy to see.
    It sucks how just as I was ready to get rid of House, he lights it up and gets us back on his side. One of our problems is bench inconsistency – House, Sheed, Baby, TA all run hot and cold. The first three were rolling tonight, but next game they may only combine for 4 points and a rebound
