The good news is that the Celtics took the three point line away from most of the Bulls players. The bad news is that they sacrificed the paint, the middle of the lane, and the baseline. The Celtics were just horrible on the defensive end and inefficient on the offensive end. During the game, Doc Rivers asked them to be aggressive. Instead of being aggressive on the glass or attaching the rim, they were aggressive in overplaying in one-on-one situations, picked up stupid fouls, and defended the pick and roll terribly.
When I say terribly, I’m specifically talking about the moments when the pick man’s defender would hedge/double so far away from the lane that they had no chance to retreat in time to pick up their man let alone anyone else’s man. Just bad basketball.
