    If Rubio can't go the Suns might want to bring up a point guard.

    Well, I suppose there is no shame is losing to the best team in the league, especially when you are missing two of your three best players. Shake it off and go beat the Kings by 30 tomorrow.

    The point guard play was really bad. A G-League player can't be much worse.

    Although he wasn’t the worst player in the court, book really sucked tonight. Played outta control offensively. Five turnovers. Poor defense. Lots of bitching to the refs. Didn’t lead imo. Step back for him tonight.

    The Celtics defense that is. We held them down plenty enough to win if we even had our average offense today.

    Kaminsky was soft tonight. He should have tried to dunk some shots but got blocked.

    Booker and his fouls...same story. We needed him to go the rim or make a shot, passive again for my liking.

    Sarics shots were all short.

    Tyler didn’t see the floor well at all. His passes never happened or were one or two seconds late.

    Baynes was awesome again. Refs blew. We didn’t hustle.

    The Celtics defense was tenacious indeed. Also they hit shots when they needed too.

    Suns appeared off all night. Part of it was Rubio but the Suns couldn't match the Celtics aggressive style of play.

    Without Rubio they simply doubled and trapped Booker. No one else on this team scares anybody. At least not any good teams.

    I would agree with this. Monty has done an incredible job of coaching this team. But other than book, not a lot of shot creators on this team. It’s why Ayton’s post game will be so important. If we can dump it into the post for stretches where things are going bad we can stem oppositions runs.

    And we thought the point guard position was fixed. It's not looking so good without Ricky Rubio.

    I kept wanting to put a G-league point guard out there for a test drive. Ty Jerome can't get well quick enough. He can play point guard and shoot the ball as well but it may take awhile for him to get up to speed when he returns.

    Maybe Tyler Johnson should have started the season strictly as a backup point guard so he would be more accustomed to running the team.
