Approach of the Dinos?

 

Some readers of the TrueHoop blog Raptors Republic have started a forum entitled:

“Should the Celtics Start Worrying About Us?”

That’s right: The Atlantic Division title is on the table for a segment of Raps fans. Go read the forum responses; it’s interesting to hear another set of die-hards debate their team’s place in the league.

    how many times have we beat the raptors this year…..2 in pre season and at least once…they should be concerned with beating us before they talk smack

  • Cptn Bubbles

    Speaking of smaller trades….
    They want to move this guy.
    Can we do this?

    @Bubs: So funny. I was looking at Ridnour last night, because I had also seen reports the Bucks were dangling him (and Warrick, and someone else). But they’re all expirings, so the Bucks would looking to get something more than the C’s exprinings, I think, even if the deal (like the one you pitch) would save them some cash this season.

    I think the recent analysis (esp. in the discussion over at Red’s Army) that focuses on the Celtics’ third-quarter struggles may be overblown. There was some hypothesizing that perhaps its psychological, etc. My guess is that it’s random noise.

    In the last ten games, the Celtics have been “blown out” in a quarter (definition: lose the quarter by 7 or more points) 9 times:
    1st Quarter (1): Lakers (19-30)
    2nd Quarter (3): Nets (22-30), Wizards (24-31), Hawks (19-30)
    3rd Quarter (2): Hornets (12-29), Magic (11-36)
    4th Quarter (3): Lakers (16-24), Hawks (18-26), Magic (22-35)

    In fact, prior to the C’s meltdown against the Orlando, they had been especially strong during the 3rd quarter, going 8 straight without losing a 3rd quarter.

    Due to the lopsidedness of the recent quarters against the Hornets and Magic, however, it has become their worst quarter of late (last 10):
    1st quarter: +0.5
    2nd quarter: +0.6
    3rd quarter: -2.2
    4th quarter: +0.5
    That looks like noise to me, which means the real problem is that the Celtics are not playing well overall. In fact, even if the C’s were doing a +0.5 in the 3rd, they would only be +2.0 overall, which is consistent with a team winning 44-50 games (i.e. a 2nd round playoff loser).

    @Zach K: Good stuff. If you read the Red’s thread, you saw I, too, am skeptical of the some of the psychological stuff that comes up. But that’s just me.
