I know a lot of you guys eat it up, but I think Russ is just a ****. There's no need for all that. Dude really thinks he's better than people because he alternates dressing like Pinnochio, an extra from Breakin or whatever else. *****.

I don't see **** wrong with what he does. Let him live man
post #41172 of 93193
I don't get being upset with Russ. Like, the media has continuously blamed him for the thunder not winning, attacked his personality, attacked his friendship with the other star on the roster. On top of that if he gives genuine answers that is somehow a character flaw, that extends to ANY athlete. So he gives them cookie cutter answers....doesn't give them a story. They can easily just leave him alone.

Celtics turn 4 steals into 8 points in 93 seconds to stun Pacers

The Boston Celtics entered Wednesday having lost four straight games and six of their last seven, reeling after a Tuesday loss to the New York Knicks that had head coach Brad Stevens questioning his team's commitment to doing the little things that win ballgames, especially in close-and-late situations.

"If we don't improve in the details, then we don't have a chance," Stevens said after Tuesday's game, according to Yaron Weitzman of SB Nation. "So we either will, or we'll be lucky to win games."

Boston did improve on Wednesday, especially in one key area: not letting the Indiana Pacers get the ball near the basket in the final 2 1/2 minutes.

After letting an 11-point third-quarter lead slip away, the Celtics found themselves trailing 92-89 with just over three minutes remaining in the fourth. And then, all of a sudden, the C's locked in and got back to the hectoring, harrying brand of on-ball defense that sparked their rise to the top of the league's defensive efficiency rankings earlier this year, snagging steals on four Pacer possessions in a 93-second span:



All four steals led to Boston layups or dunks, sending the TD Garden faithful into a frenzy and turning a three-point deficit into a 97-94 lead with 58 seconds left.

"All pick-6s, too," Pacers coach Frank Vogel said after the game, according to Ken Powtak of The Associated Press. "That was the game. Give them credit for getting up and pressuring us. That's what they do."

After a missed 3-pointer by Indy star Paul George, Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas sprinted the other way for a layup that extended the lead to five with 31 seconds left; from there, a couple of Pacer misses, Celtics rebounds and trips to the foul line for Thomas sealed the deal, as Boston closed the game on a 12-0 run to score a 103-94 win that snapped the C's four-game skid and improved them to 20-19 on the season.

The late-game larceny of Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Marcus Smart earned praise from leather-lunged lifelong Celtic and color commentator Tommy Heinsohn:


Tommy on if #Celtics have ever had 4 steals in a row: "Never did, and I have been here a long time now!"
— CSNCeltics (@csnceltics) January 14, 2016
... and the ramped-up defensive intensity earned plenty of tongue-in-cheek praise.


i don't understand why more coaches don't just tell their players to steal it every time then go make a lay-up -- brad stevens is a genius
— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) January 14, 2016
While "steal it and get a layup" probably wasn't the message Stevens emphasized midway through the fourth, that rededication to aggressive perimeter defense aimed at disrupting the opposition, forcing turnovers and creating transition-offense opportunities played a pivotal role in helping the Celtics get off the schneid and back to their winning ways. From Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe:

“We needed it,” Celtics guard Marcus Smart said. “Everybody was out there talking, ‘We need this game. We can’t lose this game. Somebody’s got to make a play.’ And four different guys made four different plays in under a minute and a half.”

Coach Brad Stevens has made it very clear that this team’s identity is its defense, and in the final minutes, that was the case. [...]

“I thought the turnovers and forcing those turnovers were huge,” Stevens said. “And those guys, that’s what they do.”

“That was a video game,” guard Isaiah Thomas said. “I definitely seen that on one of the video games I played, that was crazy.”

Thomas wasn't too shabby himself, turning in his third straight big scoring performance with 28 points on 9-for-18 shooting, including eight in the fourth quarter, to go with four rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes of work. Crowder added 25 points on 11-for-16 shooting, while power forward Johnson chipped in 14 points along with 18 rebounds and six assists (both season highs) for the Celtics, who now sit just a half-game behind the Orlando Magic for the No. 8 spot in the East.

Ultimately, though, it was the Celtics' ability to force Indiana's hand and press the Pacers into mistakes that turned the tide. Boston scored 36 points off 20 Pacer turnovers, highlighted by the late-game flurry that erased Indy's advantage and left the Pacers looking for answers. From Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star:

"Today was pretty much inexcusable," [Pacers swingman C.J.] Miles said. "We turned the ball over. It wasn't like we even got shots to allow ourselves a chance. We turned the ball over. Execution down the stretch ..."

A rush of bad plays must've flooded Miles' mind because he took his time counting the turnovers – four total – before finishing his thought.

"... you can't do that," Miles surmised. "I don't know what else to say."

Sounds like the Celtics even stole the words right out of his mouth.

Thread Starter 

KD and Russ are both weird to the media in OKC, I've read the articles and you can see how they treat and are treated by the reporters.

 

I don't really care if Russ gives those kind of answers because they're clearly trying to get a story out of it and he's not giving them the answers the media wants.. but on the other hand, they're just reporters doing their job and they have to ask those questions. It's the same as when Pop gives some reporter a hard time for asking the standard/cookie cutter questions pre/post/in game and he gives a smart *** answer.

 

Also.. Toronto and Orlando are playing in London on NBA TV today at 3.

post #41178 of 93193

Come on now.  Sports questions are about the same thing every time.

 

It's the TMZesqe questions that rubs players the wrong way.  Regardless, the policy and standard for these players/coaches/teams is to conduct themselves a certain way.

You know how folks do on here. I LOVE Westbrook giving these dipstick reporters the run around when they try to drum up some drama. Reporters are always trying to get players to hang themselves and y'all mad when a guy doesn't go for it and talks about his team and the actual game? Foh.

I mentioned the same thing a few weeks ago (pop being a **** to the media). It's cute when the old white guy does it, just don't let a young black guy start doing it.
post #41186 of 93193

Yea, we are furious Russ gives bad interviews and is a douche. 

 

I can't think straight I'm so mad! It has ruined my life. I hope God gives me the strength, to go on

like marcin gortat said...nba needs to let these guys duke it out for 15-30 seconds and then have the ref step in like they do in hockey. there would be less talking in gms and we would really see who the tough guys are. nba players dont want to fight, they aren't about that no teeth lifestyle
