    No love for Stiemsma?



    I could have sworn Stiemsma had 3 or 4 blocks/tips last night. Granted he could be better in the middle but he never seems to get any credit.
    Has anyone else noticed this?

    Stiemsma should be out there. He was never integrated into the game.  Let him play and sit JON.  JON represents the part of Doc that is holding this team back. The only way to get JON out of there is to trade him or see him get injured and out for the season.  Steamer should be playing regularly.

    Lin excelled when the Knicks had no alternative.

    He should be getting more playing time.

    Sorry, but DOC is the clueless one when it comes to this team. All of the big 3 and JO can't be the starters anymore if you want this team to actually compete. Play the youth. Play that bench. Let those guys run with Rondo. They are not doing well with the big 3 and JO as starters so what do they have to lose. Nothing. But DOC ain't buying into it. He has become the new Francona.

    doc, old players is a combo of things....last nite we saw partial youth and it was ok.. my biggest frustration this year is doc and ainge innactivity..you would think that by now they have made some roster moves either trade or playing schemes..but we have seen nothing... we saw glimpses of good rolling team when rondo was out butdoc didnt stick to the plan and ainge didnt seem to push doc...just frustrating

    That's what I saw as well. Sometimes the bench just doesn't play well but they need to see the court.

    I wonder sometimes if the starters (not Garnett of late), are just pacing themself for the playoffs. If they can't get the 5 or 6 they might as well shoot for Chicago with the 7 or 8. I can't see them beating Miami.

    An 8 would get them a little higher in the first round draft yet still keep their pride. I don't see blowing up the team yet. I was lucky enough to attend the Memphis game and was impressed with the over all effort and outcome..Very! entertaining game. I've not given up hope yet.

    Thats the thing. I have not given up hope yet either and I dont think breaking the team up is the thing to do. But didnt we all loved the streak where boston was playing with confidence, no RA no Rondo???  I surely did and they looked SOLID. During that streak, I bet you we could have played Miami and won..There was confidence, there was ball movement and there was defense... which takes us back to the threads we have seen around about RR...but going back to Stiemsma, he surely played good during that streak as well.

    Dooling getting minutes that Moore should be getting; playing JO at all and giving Daniels too much time are all weaknesses. But really, isn't this the best second + unit the Celtics have had in a long time? However, they are all second-line players and none have been so consistently good to make starting him a priority. I'd focus on who finishes more than who starts. No one from this bench moved to become a starter is going to guarantee that the Celtics would jump all over teams in the first half of the first quarter. Playing better shooters or rebounders at the end makes the most sense. They all are playing passable D as long as it's a team defense, because only Bradley is really a one-on-one defender.

    Tommy declared that he has Russell's timing.....  Stiemsma is a complete stiff that is Perk on his absolute best day..... which is saying nothing.....   if he is the answer, I do not want to know the question.

    The only stiff that I see is the Dudder. "Steamer" is a great BU 5 that needs to develop within the Celtics program. No! he is not a starting 5 but he is invaluable down low on defense..playing for reasonable$ and fitting in with the Celts, he will(could) be a great asset.  btw he made a jump shot that wasn't credited as well.

    I can only assume that BU in your "BU 5" means back up.... so if that is the case then I respond that the word GREAT and BACKUP do not belong in the same sentence....  The Cs just spent 7 years with a back up center as a starter and was not GREAT.......    Please just stop the green-glasses nonsense..... the Steamer is only on the roster because of financial reasons... if they had any money they would have an actual center on the roster.... stop the nonsense.....  Steamer has no place in the league..

    He is a work in progress...Needs to get tougher defensively. Gets pushed around. Is best when defending from the weak side. Hopefully with regular minutes, will be ready for the playoffs. Decent shot..But of course, if he was a finished product, would we have picked him up?? Amazing, that people expect second coming of DH coming from the D leagues...Yikes..
