What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Ime Udoka: “We didn’t make game clinching plays and put our foot on the gas and run away with it. We always gave them hope with those offensive rebounds.” – 9:54 PM

Ime Udoka has called out “poor rebounding” at least 10 times in the postgame presser.
Specifically said it was “inexcusable on the free throw.” – 9:53 PM

Brian Robb @BrianTRobb
Ime Udoka on bouncing back in Game 6: “It’s not like we’ve been terribly outplayed and don’t have a chance.” – 9:51 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka seems as defeated postgame as I’ve seen/heard him.
Udoka said: “We know we gave up a golden opportunity tonight.”
Tried to say a bounceback will be sweeter, but didn’t seem to have his whole heart in it. – 9:49 PM
John Karalis @John_Karalis
Ime Udoka: “we made it tougher on ourselves now. It’ll make it sweeter when we bounce back but no, we gave up a golden opportunity tonight” – 9:49 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka is not happy with the Celtics on either end of the floor.
Boston went slow and got sloppy to close the first half. Now the defense isn’t getting locked in to open the second half.
Too much complaining to the officials too to open Q3. And for no good reason too. – 8:29 PM

Ime Udoka on finishing 4th in Coach of the Year voting: “Personally, for me, it’s whatever. Honestly. But it’s a reflection on what we did as a team and how far we came throughout the year.”
Added as he walked away: “If you’re not first, you’re last!” – 5:24 PM

Jay King @ByJayKing
Ime Udoka on finishing fourth in Coach of the Year: “Personally for me, it’s whatever. Honestly.”
Said it’s a reflection of what the Celtics did as a team.
After his presser ends, he said, “If you’re not first, you’re last.” – 5:23 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Ime Udoka on finishing 4th in coach of the year voting after bad start to season: “Personally for me, it’s whatever. Honestly. But for the team it means we did well and made some strides.”
As he’s walking off stage: “If you’re not first, you’re last!” – 5:23 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Ime Udoka said the Celtics told Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown that they had to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo better. Udoka thought their improvements against Giannis opened up the ability to play the small-ball lineups that had success in Game 4. – 5:22 PM
Jay King @ByJayKing
Ime Udoka said the Celtics challenged Tatum and Brown to be tougher against Giannis when they’re guarding him. Thought their improved play in that matchup was one reason the Celtics had success with their small lineup late in Game 4. Smart/White/Al also spent some time on him. – 5:21 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Rob Williams is out again with soreness in his surgically repaired left knee, per Ime Udoka.
“Still has some soreness and is going to be overly cautious coming off of surgery until it’s pain free.”
Udoka said his swelling went down but the pain is still an issue. Grant starts. – 5:19 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Ime Udoka says Robert Williams III is OUT tonight with left knee soreness.
Swelling went down but still had soreness today so team being overly cautious. – 5:18 PM
