Back Into Bad Habits

Bad habits are sometimes hard to break.  I was hoping that this team had put the habits they formed in that 18 - 19 bad run of the season behind them.  Not so much.  They showed up again tonight.  Slow rotations.  Lack of hustle to loose balls.  Poor rebounding.  Lack of offensive flow.

Now, I don't want to overreact too much to one game.  If you put this game into the context of the last 10 and you could make the case that these things happen from time to time.  The troubling thing is that it reminds us too much of what we've seen way too often this year since Christmas.

The Spurs are a solid, veteran team and Ginobili is healthy again and looking great.  But this Celtics team is good enough to beat anyone and simply didn't bring it tonight.  I'd like to see how they respond in the next game, but it is safe to say that this game is concerning.

  • Celtics were 1-14 from 3 point land (.071) and Sheed was 1-4.
  • Tim Duncan only got 8 points tonight, and we still got killed.
  • I guess the trade secrets that Finley brought over weren't worth all that much.
  • Bench was terrible tonight.  Then again, the starters weren't much better.

Just an ugly game.  Nothing went right.  What else is there to say?
