I watched Malcolm Brogdan play a couple of games against the Celts at the end of the season and was pretty impressed. He seemed to be mature beyond his years, a steady playmaker, and good in the clutch. I looked forward to seeing more of him in the playoffs against the Raptors. But the role he had played down the stretch of the regular season (at least in the the games I saw) didn’t jive with the one he assumed in the playoffs. He seemed less of a point guard and more of a spot up shooter. This was evidenced by the fact that in six games Brogdon didn’t get to the line once. Not once. Not even by accident. Maybe, I was under the wrong impression about his role in the offense, but I felt that his lack of spark contributed to their ultimate ouster.
