Pressey gets the team moving by distributing the ball. He drives past defenses in the paint, then either lays the ball in the basket or passes inside for assists and scores.
He sets up players for scores when they get open.
Crawford dishes the ball off at the top of the circle, then looks to get open for a shot. He's a SG, not a PG - same for Bradley. With Crawford or Bradley at PG, the other team members have to make their own shots and they are not in a rhythm to score.
This post is my plea to Brad Stevens to start Pressey at PG. Then, the Celtics can have a chance to win.
Dave Cowens, announcing last night, commented on Pressey's impressive PG play.
Looks like Stevens is going to stick with Crawford from what he said last night after the game. If so, I am very disappointed in Stevens. Ainge should have named himself head coach/general manager.
