View From The Opposing Bench: Queen City Hoops

Thumbnail: The Celtics welcome back Al Jefferson to the TDGarden, something they have done many times since his departure in 2007.  This season, however, takes a whole new (old) meaning.  Seeing Jefferson has to bring back some memories for Danny Ainge, especially with the images of Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins from last night’s spectacle dancing in his head.  For the first time since making the Jefferson for Garnett swap, Ainge has a restocked roster of young talent just waiting to be dealt away in the event of an unlucky pingpong ball bounce.

But before the draft, we have games to lose play!  Like tonight against the Charlotte Bobcats; a team that definitely thought they were going to start the season better than 3-4.  While the BobbyKitties are definitely reaching adolecense, they’re not quite ready to make a playoff push.  This offseason saw some baby steps with the siging of the aforementioned Jefferson and a proven role player like Anthony Tolliver to add to guys like Ramon Sessions and Josh McRoberts (who is out tonight for personal reasons, by the way).  Mix in the young guys with potential, the Bismack Biyombos, Gerald Hendersons, Kemba Walkers, and Cody Zellers and you have a team that has a fighting chance every night.

So why the losing record?  For starters, the BobbyKitties aren’t scoring efficiently and defending well enough.  It sounds simple, but the real story is whether first year coach Steve Clifford can get these guys playing with any consistency.  The talent is there, especially to score the basketball, but it hasn’t come together at all.  At least, not like it has for Brad Stevens and your Boston Celtics.

Prediction: These teams may appear to be going in different directions but this just smells like a loss to me.  C’s coasted to a huge win in their last game and the Bobcats are trying to stop their two-game losing streak from getting any bigger.

    Why the Bobcats have a losing record? How about cause this is only Big Al's second game of the season

  • The Cardinal

    The C's can't sustain any rhythm on offense tonight because of turnovers and ticky tacky foul calls, and it's amazing they are still hanging close after 3 Q.

  • The Cardinal

    Strange game. The C's get within a few points, then miss free throws. They battle for rebounds and loose balls, and it seems every call goes against them. They finally drive to the basket, and get called for offensive fouls. Sheesh…
