In a new segment with Noah Coslov of CineSport, I break down why the Celtics' swing-and-miss Game 2 effort was a necessary but wildly costly risk, even as the series shifts back to Boston. Rajon Rondo was magnificent with 44 points, but he played all 53 minutes; Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett played a ton of minutes as well.

I also broke down the crucial coaching decision for Scott Brooks in terms of how he elects to defend Tony Parker and the Spurs' incessant ball screens.

Lastly, with the Charlotte Bobcats' getting the second overall pick from Wednesday's draft lottery, I talked about why even Michael Jordan cannot screw this pick up; it is just that cut and dry.
