Brandon Bass: Lack of Chemistry infecting the Celtics Starters

It's been a tough season for this diehard Boston Celtics fan. Due to business distractions, the launching of a brand new style of podcast and the usual hustle and bustle of every-day life, contributions on the Celtics Post Game Show have been fleeting this season. Understanding the craziness that has captured my life, Post Game Show Producer, Matt Rury, has scheduled me more and more as social media analyst. This is different for me, the guy that our team has always described as a "big mouth," now silenced behind the CLNS social media handles. Different but also a fun a different way of observing our broadcast teams' loyal, reliable and intelligent coverage.

During Friday night's post game show, hosts Matt Rury and Matt Fahey sang high praise for the oft forgotten, Brandon Bass. Matt Rury called Bass, "consistent thru constant rotational and minute changes."

Bass echoed Rury's sentiments to Washburn/Globe:

TORONTO — The Celtics starters were outscored, 77-52, Friday night against the Raptors at Air Canada Centre, and Brandon Bass believes the recent lack of production may be a chemistry issue.



Brad Stevens went with his bench down the stretch as Boston went on a 26-10 run before losing, 105-103, on Amir Johnson’s putback with 7.1 seconds left. Rajon Rondo was the only Boston starter to play more than 30 minutes, while the trio of Bass, Kris Humphries, and Avery Bradley combined for just 18 field goal attempts.

Stevens correctly pointed out that the bench was producing.


The reserves scored 49 points, including a team-high 20 from Jerryd Bayless. Bass said the bench’s success is a byproduct of less structure.

“When they’re out there, they’re just playing,”

I am pretty sure that Brandon was not listening to Friday night's Post Game coverage. That said, a constant "criticism" of Coach Brad Stevens this season has been his inconsistent rotations and line-ups. It's clear Bass is also sharing in Celtics' fans' frustrations with the rookie head coaches decision-making in regards to player minutes. Bass said. “Everything is free flowing. With the first group, we have to play to our strengths, man. We got players out there that have to play to their strengths. If you don’t play to your strengths, it’s like your just out there.”
