    Life After Perk

    The last 2 games the Celtics have outrebounded their opponents. They are also shooting well from the FT line. Maybe that's why the Celtics are scoring more points. I think having a Center that can shoot and a backup SF that's athletic and versatile is making the Celtics a more dynamic team on offense.

    A sword has two edges.

    The last two games were played against poor teams. Did you notice that Krytic was absolutely abused by both Kaman and Jefferson?

    Both teams made Krystic the focus of their offense. Krytic made Jeffeson look like the league MVP.

    That's true, but the Celtics have lost to bad teams like the Wizards. Tonight the Celtics didn't fold. A good sign considering they could have easily lost the Jazz game. 

    In fairness to Krstic he gave the Celtics a boost in the 1st qtr. The Celts got 30 points in the 1st qtr. if you didn't know. 

    The Celts have also improved their FT shooting, if you didn't notice. And Green and Krstic can hit outside jumpers, something Perk could never do.

    Lastly, what good would Perk do if Baby always ends up playing in the last 5 minutes of the game?

    Every point counts. FTs are not to be taken for granted. That's one area where the Celtics have clearly improved. 

    In order for the Celts to advance to the Finals they would have to win the east first. To do that the Celts would have to defend players like Granger, Turkoglu, Lebron, and possibly Melo. Without a player like Jeff Green the Celts would most likely lose in the playoffs. Pierce can not handle all of them without help.

    With Perk the Celts were designed to beat the Lakers and maybe the Magic. Right now we're not even sure if the Celts would ever face those teams in May. 

    Having a more dynamic offense is better compared to the monotonous 3 versus 5 basketball when Rondo and Perk are on the floor at the same time.

    That team has a lot of talent as well, and that is the first time Celtics have won there since 2007.  I will only look at the positives in such a win, and was it me or did the Celts look tpo have moved on from Perk.  The played with great heart tonight.

    This is a team of veterans. They know how to eventually let it go and get business done on the court. It's not the first time in the Big 3's career when a player they liked a lot was traded. It's part of the business and they know it.

    Re: Life After Perk

    If we hadn't made the trade, how many points/rebounds/blocks would Perk have had in the last three games?

    Zero.

    How many of the last three games would we have won?

    Probably, zero.

    Post trade, we won two out of three.  We won both since Krstic and Green joined the team.  In the last couple of yaers, do you ever remember us having more offensive rebounds?  Both teams we beat have rebounders.

    The added scoring is very important.  Celtics record is now 24-2 when scoring 100pts. or more.  Although Perk was a defensive stalwart(when he was on the floor),  our defense is still quite capable and our offense is greatly improved on both the first AND second units.  It is now much more likely that the C's will score 100 a night.  I don't know that our opponents are any more likely to do so.

    Lastly, if you want to question any of the deadline deals, the one to question is trading Erden.  I can only figure that the only way we could get rid of Harangody was to send Erden as well.  We'll see who of the buyouts join the team and how they add to our team.

    And the Celtics look like a championship team when they're making more than 80% of their FTs.

    Re: Life After Perk

    Of the players currently available, who are the offensive liabilities?  Johnson?  Rondo?

    If Rondo continues to improve on his mid-range jumpers then he's not going to be a liability anymore.
