That was a relatively disappointing game, wasn’t it?
And I’m hereby declaring a moratorium here on the use of the phrase “iso ball” because it’s become this all-encompassing and dead wrong cliché. Go watch the screens set before any pass is made, the misdirection and movement on the weak side. Stuff happens, you just see one guy get the ball and shoot and miss that stuff because it’s easier to drop a cliché than pay attention.
End o’ rant.

A step too slow
This is not to pick on Bebe entirely but it’s an example of the inconsistencies that make it frustrating to watch him sometimes. He did have seven rebounds and that’s good but slow reaction and missing all the shots he took make it one of those days.
A tough few minutes
He switches out on Marcus Morris in the corner with about four minutes left, does not get blown by and contests a Morris miss. He gets in the same predicament a few minutes later and contests the shot well, although Morris made it, which is going to happen.
Then on the final play of the half, he get switched out onto Terry Rozier (a bad mismatch they should avoid at all costs) and fouls Rozier as he makes a three-pointer for a momentum-dulling four-point play.
Funny thing, though. For the most part Valanciunas has been very good defensively this year on shooters and drivers on the perimeter and was in two out of three plays in that stretch except the Celtics scored seven points.
I’ll say this one more time:
A bit more, as usual.
Not sure when or why I Shazam’d this but I did. So …
I will tell you, though, when they got to the third period and it was a one-goal game and the Bostons had two more guys on the ice than the Torontos did there was some overtime/shootout angst but the PK was wondrous and it was time to relax and write.
And, with this, I bequeath the Pucks back to McGran and Zorro, where they belong.
I had no idea it’s like a 4 ½ flight from here in Boston to there in Houston so if you want to knock a few mailbag questions out of the way silly early, I don’t go until about 1 p.m. East that’d be fine.
Here’s a question:
How are Blue Jays fans going to rationalize their still deep and abiding love and admiration for Alex Anthopoulos with their obvious distaste for the tomahawk chop now that Alex is seemingly poised to become the general manager of the Atlanta Braves.
Can the two be separated?
On one hand, you’d sure have to think the Argonauts caught a major break this weekend when Saskatchewan won the East semifinal (yeah, you read that right, Saskatchewan, East semifinal) to bring the Roughriders to town for Sunday’s East final.
If nothing else, it’s going to put some money into the pockets of ownership because the one undeniable fact about life in the CFL is that Roughrider fans travel like no others and I’m guessing attendance Sunday gets juiced by something like 2,000 or 4,000 fans.
