Come on Doc you finally see that the Celtics take too many jumpers? It's been like this all season. Tonight it was just that obvious.
"We had 1,000 open shots tonight. A lot of them were jump shots," Rivers told reporters in Oakland. "And at some point, I thought, you've got to penetrate and take it to the basket. They don't have a lot of shot blocking, and we didn't do that. But it's hard to tell a shooter not to shoot an open shot. So, as a coach, you're kind of stuck. You let them keep taking them and you hope that some go in, and they didn't."
"[The Warriors] made shots. They made a lot of shots that were contested," Rivers said. "You know, but they made a lot of shots that were uncontested, too, and that's what bothered me early on. I think their first four baskets were guys standing there with no hands up."
The Celtics didn't contest sh*t Saturday night in Oakland. Pardon my french. But it felt like the Warriors did what the Celtics wanted to do. They drove the ball , and kicked out to the open shooter. Doc has answers, but are they the right answers. It's easy to bag on Doc right now, and I'm one of them. I feel like Doc is the right guy, but he's stubborn, and I don't know who's listening to Doc anymore.
