Celtics Morning Joe: Too quick in final play against the Magic

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 26, 2012 at 5:30 AM

Yes, Pierce had a decent look. But sometimes watching your favorite movie doesn't feel good every time. It can be predictable, but on the other hand who doesn't love to watch your  favorite movie saying every line? In the game of basketball though, going with the same old play doesn't work every time. Pierce took the shot, and he missed with time expiring. He missed his vintage elbow jumper. So how did Doc feel about the shot?

"I was kicking myself, the last play, we went too early," Rivers said. "Paul, when he came off [the Terry screen], he was actually wide open. But I told him the last shot -- that’s why he puled back out. He had it; that’s a good lesson for me, the timing of that was just too early."

Sometimes you need to take the best shot. Sometime I hate when teams, or the Celtics waste the entire clock. Of course I get why teams do it, but I also feel like teams take bad shots at the end of games. My favorite play that seems to work lately, or in the past couple of seasons. The Rondo, and KG pick-and-roll connection. It could be KG shooting a jumper, or getting an alley-opp dish from Rondo for an easy layup. 

What do you guys think about the Celtics final play last night?

I don't think the final play should go through Pierce anymore. I think it should go through Rondo. I love Pierce. He is one of the greatest Celtics of all time, and still one of the top shooting forwards in the league, when he's on. But Rondo is our Big Dog now. That's always been one of the noblest aspects of the Celtics tradition. Cousy to Russ. Russ to Hondo. Hondo to Cowens. Cowens to Bird. Bird to Bias (only that one worked out tragically, but Bird to Bias was the idea). One of the things a great star has to do, in the Celtics tradition, is to support the transition to the next generation of stars. Pierce should be looking for his shot, or his cut to the basket, off what Rondo does.
