    Paul Pierce is the Anchorman

    How do you stop the flow of the game?  How do you take Rondo out of the game?  It's easy.  Give the ball to Paul Pierce  --  The Anchorman!

    Last nights game was a perfect example of ISO carried to the extreme.  Celtics started off terrific in the 1st half.  Had 9 Assists in the 1st period, and 7 Assists in the 2nd.  16 Assists  --  great ball movement  --  everyone involved.

    Then comes The Anchorman to STOP ball movement.  Starts with a PP shot  --  ends with a PP shot.  No problem.  The problem is that PP had 11 attempts at the basket  --  8 shots  --  3 others he was fouled on.  Guess how many shots were Assisted.  ONE! 

    Now he scored.  Terrific!  Problem is that the ISO stopped the team movement.  We ended up with THREE ASSISTS in the quarter.  Ray who had 20 Pts. at the half gets 1 shot and a heave as the clock runs out in the period.

    We have to keep the ball moving to get the good shots.  Doesn't matter who gets the shots as long as everyone gets touches, and stays in the game.  It makes the game so much easier.

    Rondo is a Gem.  He sets up everyone.  He gets the ball to Krystic and Green involved.  He needs the ball in his hands.

    Come on Paul  --  move the ball!  We had 16 Assists at the half, and only got 8 Assists in the 2nd half.

    You're crazy! Pierce got the job done in the 2nd half by scoring 20 points after halftime. If you were watching the game on TV you would have heard Tom Heinsohn begging the Celts to give the ball to Pierce late in the 4th qtr.

    If you missed it, the game winning play was Pierce's ISO that resulted in a KG miss but Ray grabbed the offensive rebound, got fouled, and made 2 FTs to seal the deal.

    Paul is the best player on the court almost every night, he had a great first half, he shared the ball and built confidence in Green and Kristic.  He is the heart and soul of the team and when he plays within the offence , he is a superstar player.

    Check out the last 5:50 of that game. Only Pierce made a FG in the last 5:50 of that game. Maybe that's why Rondo didn't get an assist because it's either Rondo himself missed the shot or the one he passed it to missed the shot.

    Without Pierce's game last night, the C's would have lost this one badly.  And it's not offense that's hurting this team, it's defense.  The Celtics stopped playing it midway through the 3rd last night. 

    Jeff Green needs to be able to pull down more than 1 rebound at the 4 spot.  And Kristic has slippery hands.  They looked terrible under the glass last night.

    Re: Paul Pierce is the Anchorman

    prob with rr is he tends to flow into hero-ball, with too many unnecessay flashy passes.. we let the other team in, then we have to slow things down and get conservative by going to paul and limiting most options and turnovers.. really its like we want the ball out of rondo's hands. this is the importance of west. when rr fell into the same schtick versus the clips (or the game he got hurt in), west came in and by keeping the flow BASIC, we were able to pick up the win minus the ISO or the rondo plays of an ASS-O

    Do you guys ever listen to Tommy and Mike?  Do you ever see Doc's pre-game interview?  What do the say???

    "Move the ball."  "Make the extra pass."  "Keep everyone involved."  "Reward the big guys when they run the floor."Get the ball up the floor, and get the easy shot in transition."

    Ever hear them say:  "Give the ball to one guy, and get out of the way."  "Don't give the ball to the guy with the "hot hand."  Ray had just gone 6 - 7, and had 20 at the half.

    We had scored 32 Pts. in the 1st quarter.  A total of 2 baskets without an Assist .  Assists:  Rondo had 3  --  Pierce had 2  --  Garnet had 2  --  Krystic had 2  --  Murphy had 1.  Everyone was in the game.  Everyone was getting shots.

    3rd period there were all shut off by lack of ball movement.

    See Miami get smoked in the last 2 games.  smoked very badly.  Why?  Because they are an ISO team.  They rank next to last in Assists.

    Did you watch the game? Pierce had 20 points in the second half. What you are saying is that we lose ball movement when Pierce starts shooting. When we are not scoring, we purposely get it to Pierce to create something. We weren't scoring at the beginning of the 2nd half, so we got it to Pierce. And he clinched the game in the 4th with 2 baskets on iso's.

    Ya know...I'm not the biggest Pierce fan but I appreciate his skills, hard work and dedication. Anyone that says he is not a team player is off base. Oh, and I can be honest when saying he was the reason the C's maintained the lead and won the game last night.

    And is Rondo listening? If he is, why doesn't Rondo do what doc tells him to do?

    They are talking to Rondo. Its his team. He's the motor.

    Is his head in the game... or is he bored?

    You always find some way to talk about Rondo, it is sort of annoying. What are you even talking about, the words you highlighted were EXACTLY WHAT RONDO WAS DOING YESTERDAY. Do you realize he had 16 assists? Did you see all those fastbreak layups he got Green and Krystic?

    you've got to be kidding. I can understand your criticism of rondo's shooting, but the running in transition, rewarding the bigs, finding open players, is rondo's bread and butter

    Trying to blame CPP is not going to get it done.

    Sorry... but it's Rondo's team... and Doc is the coach.

    Paul doesn't cause the ISO game, in fact he's the only one who can score out of such situations. I do agree with people who find it strange that they so often move away from what's working and turn to ISO ball. Why?

    Finally some sensibility.  Maybe someone should make them keep pushing the ball.  It sure wasn't Paul that stopped the team from running.  I don't think it was Doc either.  If you don't push the ball you are forced to half court offense or iso or what every you want to call it.  Anyone think maybe Rondo got tired?  He can't continue to play so many minutes.  I told everyone we needed a backup (all year really) but recently because we needed insurance, of course I was ridiculed for saying such a thing, (right Bias).  Now look who we are getting. Arroya.  Of course he will be better than Bradley.  Anyone think maybe when Bradley is running the show things start getting stagnant?  EVERY GAME.   The dude can't play point PERIOD.

    No offense but what the hell are you talking about? If you read my post you would see that I wasn't blaming Pierce at all, in fact, I said nothing that would even remotely resemble Pierce bashing. I actually was arguing that Pierce had a good game and was a big part in why we won. I was responding to your saying that Rondo doesn't move the ball, reward the bigs, etc. Which is completely untrue seeing as he had 16 assists and got Krystic and Green a ton of easy shots. And who exactly are you telling me to ignore? I don't think anyone is sure what you are talking about.

    LOL - I second that thought!  Please!

    As for Captchris, its pretty much unanimous that everyone disagrees with you.  I have seen games where PP goes to ISO too much, but it hasn't happened much this season at all.  PP is playing GREAT team ball all game through.  He got his points in the offense and was the one to save us when the offense stumbled.

    In the first half Ray couldn't miss.  But, as is prone with any shooter, he started missing.  He missed 3 in a row and Golden State was having a field day when Rondo kept drifting away from his man (Monte Ellis).  At taht point, we needed something.  PP did the right thing.  

    So, the question is:  Do you have an open enough mind to reconsider your views since everybody but YOUt thinks Paul played team ball when necessary but also carried the team on his back only when necessary?   Amazing players can do BOTH and Paul is a rare guy who can do both.
