    Toronto beats Boston by 20, "Kyrie's been hurt, he was off." Cleveland beats Boston by 20, "That was a statement win alright."

    ESPN, ladies and gentlemen.

    From the NYpost write up the other day. It's almost like the narrative is starting to change from "first round failures" to this. Almost.

    "The Raptors (38-16), the Eastern Conference juggernaut nobody pays any mind to, were led by center Jonas Valanciunas’ 18 points and 10 rebounds."

    Also filter that for +/- and have a great day.

    Oh yeah, and the entire ESPN write up on last night's game was Brad Stevens and Kyrie Irving quotes. Evidently Boston played poorly because Kyrie was injured recently and that is the game story for that game.
    And we had some tough losses against teams we should have beaten. Teams like LAC, Dallas, Utah and Miami come to mind.

    Although, sometimes, we're still just Mike Conley...

    "There’s simply a different energy to Warriors-Celtics than any other cross-conference rival for Golden State. The Cavs often look defeated. The Raptors don‘t seem to earn the Dubs’ best. Boston is not quite a lock to be playing in June, but the Celtics right now look like the Eastern challenger that could give Golden State the most trouble."

    Sometimes if feels like every article about every other team is just meant to provoke me. #fukboston

    My point was that the board is dead, not the thread. I just posted it in here because it's the "we're good, why aren't they/we talking about it" thread.
    Maybe it's the January dog days of basketball. Instead of throwing punches at each other, we're just not posting as often. But yes, the site crash and the ongoing problems with mobile may have played a role

    Uh.... sort of. I think everybody is just biding their time now until the playoffs to see if the 'culture reset' is actually real and if Lebron might actually be beatable this year. Both of those things look encouraging in the regular season, so like you said, nothing to really complain about.

    We're beating up on weak sisters, but Casey's in-game management in close games / clutch situations against top teams is still an issue, IMO.

    For me it’s a combination of not being a fan of Tapatalk (guess I just still haven’t gotten used to it) while the mobile site is still a mess and work’s been busy as hell. But yeah definitely less to talk about when almost everything everyone’s been complaining about is mostly being worked out this season.

    I believe the main site admin is looking for screenshots/examples so that he can get the mobile site fixed.
