Bill Simmons Calling Celtics-Lakers Game Highlights


The Celtics dropped their 11th straight game on the road against the Western Conference last night, in what will likely become known as the MarShon Brooks revenge game. The guard scored 10 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Lakers to a 101-92 win over the Celtics late.

The bigger story of the night though was the debut of Bill Simmons doing color commentary alongside Mike Gorman for CSNNE. Much like Jackie MacMullan earlier this year, Simmons was terrific in the role, blending a nice balance of analysis and humor into the broadcast.

CSNNE was wise enough to put a few highlights of Simmons’ performance together so take a look in case you missed them.

    Josh Smith and Chauncey Billups went to Dumars to have him fire Cheeks, reportedly.
    I’m glad we didn’t waste assets to acquire such an immature player at the trade deadline.
    “I suck so I want the coach fired, and hire one who won’t yell at me when I take 10 3′s a game and miss 9 of them every night.”

    Media blames the tall frontcourt and Josh playing the 3 for his struggles, but thats not true. In Atlanta, they had Zaza and Horford at Center & PF, Josh at the 3 and they were a dark horse contender for 3 or so years(nearly took out the 2008 Celtics). He played great then.

    I like Joel Anthony’s effort.
    Surprising how bad the Kings’ record is.
    Mclemore hits 3′s like Ray Allen.
    Thomas is a midget version of Westbrook.
    Cousins is a 20-10 waiting to happen.
    Gay is hitting every shot, contested or not.

    Rondo & Sullinger don’t play, Celtics lose by 7 to the Kings. No more game previews/reviews/grades? Is the season that bad?

    Josh Smith is perhaps my least favorite player in the league, but I have to disagree, Hax. Cheeks has had his moments in coaching, but his offensive style wasn’t working with Drummond at 5, Monroe at 4, and Smith at 3. Spacing is an enormous issue for the Pistons, and it has forced Smith out to the perimeter. That said, just because he’s out there doesn’t mean the insane number of 3′s he takes is justified. But he is Josh Smith and that’s what Josh Smith does.

    In Atlanta, Smith played almost exclusively at PF, and was much more effective. His and Horford’s minutes consistently doubled Zaza’s, and the Smith/Horford frontcourt comprised the Hawks’ top 3 or 4 units (in terms of minutes played) over that 2008-12 span.

    So while Josh Smith is an overpaid mess, part of the problem is the system.
