Brought to you as always even in the morning Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Harvard pilgrim. Count us in for it to the the actual meat of the matter today gives the pros and cons of playing these early gains and is a different. Culture. You the coaches knows -- there are probably like to -- -- -- -- No more net for the period but then I have more room. You know -- after the game for the Mets aren't the for coaches -- -- awkward probably like them the player never liked the it is the game came to -- You know use such a routine oriented player most players are so. It is to some like some sort of within both players though most coaches. With the same thing applied a preparation -- more time. Now you're prepared for the date of the day. At the coach so. You stick around the garden. David you know -- you -- whatever mr. So now we. If that -- -- because -- Like this but in the -- It's win. With that Thursday night's what you expected it team without them to be at this point. There are -- -- one -- -- really do you know what we have to run them when Damon should of won. But we didn't so we didn't deserve when it. You know rebounded. -- and you would assume that if you re entry through you know from this entry through. And that's the plethora of wide open shots whatsoever to the senate. This wide open shots. Or you can -- it in particular way to make -- But we approach the gamer. Our guys we would raise enough -- million all of them. But they can have miscues -- we. Jordan again and then you know they definitely bounced on its -- particular. Was not very happy at that. What we were ready when we'll we wouldn't focus we wouldn't sharp. It -- -- withdrawals may be because there's no Rondo I think differently. But I don't work -- RO but every -- -- but the other partner here just -- -- -- And then we joined the game in the second half and that's sort of that we -- and anything after the game you know. Our guys while we made it recovered at one. That. Is that the will be. Is it oversimplification. Of what qualities do you effective source saying you were aggressive. He I don't know what the word is can be aggressive that's definitely one album -- yeah out of ought to be out of you know. That's dirty. Word. Users. There are about all that's. I think it's hardly. -- destructive artfully. The other and that's who we -- Jeff tell us the ability condition it was the biggest thing for him in the long layoff in back -- them. Chris Wilcox had some moments in the last 710 days moments not -- first test very good second -- his conditioning the biggest thing with him as well. Yeah we're sure I'll probably more so. That -- pleased about the Versa. -- that had been. You definitely just tired weak and that's acceptable and understandable and so you have to. We were watching it closely when he's on the floor just give them the proper -- the -- minutes. Don't think of Toronto especially shorthanded -- -- -- sort of dangerous spot a team that Iran Iraq a lot of isolation it they've been money well. -- there by two players. You know it and of the rules and these. Over that it that he iso player. You know -- war you don't feel. -- You gotta keep most of the last number one but you've got a roof line it is a great job well. I think it's Celtics fans this kind of did talk to a 21 yesterday -- -- -- -- that I did -- I'm very popular outside of this segment of our other people's. Even if you. And they. That's what it is -- and their much more accepting. The last two years you know I don't think -- the -- have a great feel for the talent. And the improvement of Bargnani DeRozan especially at -- has it affected your plan against Paul Pierce Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett and Rondo. And so you know as this opportunity can -- perspective on count yeah and a lot of -- their record you know their record over the years of that good and so. This count those players -- both of march the players they can get better. At that go to the Celtics raptors specs of the WEEI Celtics radio network.
