The Celtics have looked like a team with no playoff experience, and honestly some of the guys here don't have much playoff experience. The inexperience hasn't blended well through three games with the vets. The team looked over anxious,and Pierce alluded to that in the post game interviews.
"I just know we missed some great shots," Rivers said afterward. "Paul misses a layup, Kevin misses a layup, (Terry) misses a point-blank layup -- we missed three or four wide-open shots. And you've just got to be mentally tougher."
When the veterans (Kevin Garnett (36) and Paul Pierce (35), Jason Terry (35) ) start to miss shots, or they can't score the way they used to. Concerns, and questions will come up. We know all of the rumors. Will KG retire, or will Paul leave Boston for the Clippers,or another team. This series hasn't been a typical Pierce and KG playoff series. They haven't had perfect playoff series, but they were able to lead teams. Pierce even had issues with making passes, he had another 5 turnovers, and he's simply making dumb mistakes.
“Once I started preparing in the summer for my workouts I knew,” said former Celtics forward Walter McCarty, who played in 36 games for the LA Clippers during the 2005-06 season, his last as a NBA professional. “I didn’t work out as long. I quit early with a lot of stuff. I just didn’t feel it. I couldn’t do the things I wanted to do and I’m sure those guys are starting to feel that game after game. They know when the time is right and I’m sure they’ll make the right decision.”
Until this series is over. I'll save my thoughts on the end. It's near gangs, but when is it fully the Rondo era?
