Grades: Pistons 115, Celtics 111

i

Commenters (probably correctly) got on my case a little bit for being too soft in my recap yesterday. As a result, today’s grade curve is quite a bit higher. YOU ALL FAIL.

Boston Celtics 111 FinalRecap | Box Score 115 Detroit Pistons
Brandon Bass, PF 34 MIN | 6-8 FG | 6-8 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 18 PTS | -8C’mon guys, 18 points on EIGHT SHOTS? I have to do it. Sorry. Bass gets a good grade.

Jeff Green, SF 41 MIN | 8-21 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 23 PTS | -5Cool second half, Jeff.

Jared Sullinger, C 36 MIN | 9-20 FG | 0-0 FT | 10 REB | 5 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 2 TO | 22 PTS | +622 and 10 isn’t awful, but Andre Drummond finished with 19 points and 20 boards against an overmatched Sully. Sometimes, a bad grade isn’t your fault. It’s still a bad grade though.

Jerryd Bayless, PG 41 MIN | 10-19 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 25 PTS | 0I can’t ever give someone a bad grade on a 5-for-6 night from 3-point range, even if the one miss was the potential game-tying attempt.

Phil Pressey, PG 36 MIN | 5-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 2 REB | 11 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 12 PTS | +9ELEVEN ASSISTS. ONE TURNOVER. SORRY, NOT SORRY, HE’S GETTING A GOOD GRADE.

No grades for the bench mob, which really just didn’t do anything.

    Jeff Green – 23 pts – D+ ‘not good enough even though kevin love is called king for making 28 pts on 27 shots every night’

    Wiggins -15 pts – A++ ‘nice to see our star making five shots a game!!!!’

    These grades are getting ridiculous. first rondo got an A with 7 turnovers. Now Jeff Green gets a D+ with 23 points on 8-21? Sully grabs a C- with a 22/10? Do you guys need someone to do proper grades without bias?

  • check12check

    daaaaaaaaaang guys. When even Janos has given up, it’s a bad season

  • hax

    I’m done with Green. Trade him, get a couple 2nd round picks(they could be good this year).
    Sign Pierce!!! He’s at least consistent even at his age.
