    If LeBron goes West they could make the ECF.

    I mean who else do they have to contend with aside from Boston?

    Toronto? Milwaukee? Washington?

    They're all beatable.

    It looks like the last 2 games have made it very clear what OKC's approach should be going forward.

    Carmelo is the distant third piece out of this "Big" 3.

    Russ is and Russ and PG is a legitimate superstar and top 7 player in the NBA. Those are the guys you want carrying the team and the guys that you design plays for.

    Carmelo is still a good offensive player. He can still create and make his own shot, and if he gets into a rhythm, he can give you a 30 point game on any given night. But he is no longer a dominant offensive player and OKC shouldn't spend much time trying to force the issue with him.

    Let him get his shots as they come, but there's no need to continue on trying to figure out how to get all 3 guys involved. You design the offense around Russ and PG, and just let Melo get his shots as they come naturally.

    Do that, and OKC have a great chance to find themselves in the WCF.

    It shouldn't have taken 10+ games to figure this out, Melo is like 34 and is basically a low-efficiency chucker, he should've never been looked at as a centerpiece.

    Billy Donovan has been a huge disappointment. I don't know if he has an actual system. There's way too much standing around with very little off ball movement. 90% of the offense is players standing around watching one guy dribble, trying to take his man one on one. I understand that we have players who prefer playing in ISO sets but it can't be THAT much.

    They need to get to the point where they understand that moving w/o the ball actually creates easier shots for everyone. I'm not sure why it's so hard for head coaches to drive this point home to their players.

    Yep. I watched the game. Dude was unstoppable.

    Lonzo Ball's 2 pts were pretty impressive, too.

    Wait, someone bumped this thread and it wasn’t to stand in awe of the Celtics 13 game win streak?

    I am disappoint.

    The crazy thing is he still has a lot of room for improvement.

    I turned the Golden State-Boston game off midway through the 3rd quarter when it looked like the Warriors would blow them out. Woke to a Boston win.

    During this streak the Celtics have now overcome a 18 point 2nd half deficit at OKC and now a 17 point 2nd half deficit against the Warriors.

    Very impressive.
