Planning on great I can't tell us did you. Ever expect that you would be watching your team. Play the way they're playing right now let's say a month or two ago. Well I great. And look at where where plant at Turkey don't. And you -- each individual could play a little bit better pretend to predict what they're doing right now I'm not sure it would be predictable circuit. Larry. That we sat here the past few years to play as well they're playing now. On the defense has been great this schedule there. Extremely difficult to -- seven -- last -- With their quality competition. The schedule. On the back to act in you not to lose -- greens -- one entry point is pretty spectacular. You know I asked you right after the trading deadline if you had any deals on a table that -- close to being completed you said yes and getting there was any specifics but does wonder about more about the specifics but. But but my question is are you glad now. That a deal that she wanted to make maybe a month ago didn't go through based on the way to the team is playing right now. A great -- Mike and -- but I want that it may -- I'd probably still -- -- You know I've -- that we had a deal that. We could have been different we are protected. So. I would -- But what one of those rumored deals was OJ Mayo for reality not does that have. You and you're not. Gonna answer -- not answer but I think that that straight to Maine. Does that make you better maybe marginally. You outlet that it does any good to talk about those. Made -- brokers. So that was -- up that was in reality that something after the effective people who just talked about that's out there. Yeah well there's going to be a lot of their but I can't curb corporate site. -- -- we talk about players other players -- don't mayor out of it. You're fine for this odds -- that your job. I understand. A about a lady we US last night's game. I -- yeah. I I know that it's one thing that Doc Rivers state clearly away from and you probably wanna do the same. But I'll throw it up there anyway what did you think of the officiating last night. The end and oh yeah absorb or -- basically. All. You. Missiles and he eats -- And a bit -- -- it got pretty. -- -- Yeah I must tell my two sets I thought they were off -- -- -- -- I I can understand how you wanna stay out of trouble but you don't have to go to what could I haven't come up. I thought that we. -- I school. -- I call her college game you're. Missiles. That are that that is in that city. Now life so those last night don't always agree with Tommy but mentality is right on Los -- I I just couldn't believe when I saw that. -- let's talk about a player that is on your team in Avery Bradley -- this morning. Brought up the point that once you've made the conscious decision. That you weren't necessarily going to force him to learn to point and have him go without the ball at the two. The Dutch tourists seemed to gain tremendous confidence do you think that was the kind of the turning point for the -- -- -- Earlier -- brought the self rate their equipment and street air. -- -- -- that he had even though he's not easy. Quite dark like rob -- or a true point guard. We were able to do with him like that they -- because nobody said. You member of the two games back -- -- and -- and keep the pressure put on -- now there. It was pretty it was very very impressive he has worked to -- up and at our offense. That would greatly out city he's writing and art. Outlets are. I think both of those stretches where equally. Impressed. And these are quite impressive streaks what one of the great streaks the Celtics are going now in additional winning four games in a row is Rondo is in nineteen consecutive games with double digit assist. Last night -- twenty have some turnovers where would you write it seems crazy to even ask this about a triple double -- where would you rank the triple double he had last night. Vs the other eighteen games where he had double digit assist. You know I think. I players to triple doubles not play particularly well it seemed like it triple doubles if these spectacular courts but. I think it brought -- street. It's very spectacular own rather quiet very. You know one of the key reasons why our team it plays at such -- right. But there are other guys to shoot. It -- -- get a lot ships can't keep in Britain. And all that -- all extremely well. And eight repeating you know cutting out any duty out arts history prior art our local percentages. Decline. And that would make baskets to assist all there I think that it's really -- a team effort. That's -- -- that assists have gone up a bit -- at the top assist guys all year at the last few years. But I think this streak. Also reflects -- -- But that is in the last two games if you look at them fascinating when you look at the the percentage probability of playing Miami in Miami. A week after you beat him up big time in your own building. And they come up planes that well and handled down in Miami that to me. Was monumental because as you know it doesn't happen that often -- in the -- second one is. You play in the second -- of a back to back against at a younger athletic team sitting around for the last two nights. You're dog tired you're getting into town real late. And they come out. -- it could play on fuel use in the fourth quarter and overtime and played the what you did last night when you look at it as a guy who played the game. The last two nights to understand. How difficult that was you do you marvel at what you saw the last couple might. Well. I talked about this group guy. You know especially our Arctic or. There have been again last year. Apart so yeah it's. Just absorb much I think the greatest surprise your Bible. And without. And what they were able to accomplish.
