Re: Celtics are just taking it easy for now
They aren't taking it easy but they're not playing the absolute hardest. Veteran teams do a good job of masking this. Judging by Docs substitutions, He seem to rather balance out minutes and take a couple losses along the way. KG has looked pissed because you can tell he wants to play more.
This team will be probably 3-5 games over .500 by the break, and then be 10-14 games over .500 like they usually do.
They do get up for big opponents though. SA owns us. Since DUncan has been there I dont think we ever really beat those guys. 2008 Celtics still lost to the Spurs. They just own us.
