Completely forgot how much #12 sucks on the free throw line

Recommended Posts

Yeah not expecting much though. Boston is going to play like it's the playoffs because of their offseason. Most of our new guys are injured.

once Kemba and Batum realize you shouldn't throw it down to Dwight - and just let him get easy put-backs - our team will get much better.. forcing offense through Big Al is way different then forcing offense through D12..

Lamb by the way - has been getting great praise from Cliff and coaching staff for offseason.. hope it translates and isnt just fluff..

You can tell that Dwight and Kemba need to work on their PnR chemistry together (on offense and defense) a little more and it'll take a few games for Dwight to find his footing in the offense, but he definitely contributed in the areas we really need him to be strong in.

Positives:

  • He had 10 rebounds (4 offensive) in 23 minutes of play. Would have had more, but Celtics fired up a ton of threes which led to longer boards out of his reach.
  • He had 3 blocked shots and he definitely altered some others
  • And while he didn't convert at a good clip, Dwight got to the foul line which has independent value

Those things listed were exactly what we really need him for. A monster on the glass and an elite rim protector. 

I think the offensive chemistry will improve as he gets more run with Kemba and Nic. Not expecting Dwight to be the all star he was a few years ago, but he's still talented. He will be a valuable piece for us this year I think

Lamb had 17 points off the bench which was great to see.

He and Monk were especially fun to watch running around on the wings together. If Frank can become more consistent, that second unit could have a ton of fire power
