    We Need to Run...

    What this team once was they are no longer able to replicate.  They can no longer function consistently in the half court and they don't have the legs to attack the rim.  What is clear is the fact that this is now Rondo's team and for him to be efficient they need to run.  With the open court few are as adept and his deficiencies are less glaring.  The unfortunate truth is that the current roster (at least the group Doc plays) can't keep up the pace.
    The playing time allotted to each player has to change:
    #1 Wilcox has to play over O'neil
    #2 J.Johnson has to get consistent time on the court
    #3 KG and Pierce both need the minutes capped....with the condensed schedule they are constantly flat.
    #4 Bradley should play over Dooling

    Even with changes I doubt this team can win against the likes of the Bulls and Heat, but running will give them a better chance.

    Exactly and for two reasons - (1) neither the Bulls and Heat can run and (2) the best fast break teams score about 18 points and the worst ones score about 10.....

    As Tommy always says Run, Run, Run..... under 500 after the road trip...... stop worrying about the Heat and the Bulls.

    How can you run if you can't get the rebound?

    absolutely true.....but I think its more likely that this team rebounds if they have an aggressive attitude on offense and in turn play fresh legs.  There is not a personal change they can make that will fix their inability to get boards, it has to be a change in their mentality.
