The Celtics, after yesterday's loss to the Knicks, will head to Atlanta tonight to face the Hawks. The Celtics are not playing well right now and deserve to be where they are. They currently sit at a very disappointing 20-22. I really excepted more from them, but it's just not working out. Here are tonight's five things:
5. MORE CONSISTENCY:
The Celtics, obviously, were very inconsistent last night. They would go on a big run, and then they would give up a big run. This obviously needs to change soon so that they can get back to winning.
4. GET GARNETT SOME SHOTS:
Garnett got just nine shots last night. This was disappointing. He hasn't played well recently, but he still needs to take some shots. Get him the ball more so that he can contribute.
3. STOP LETTING TERRY SHOOT:
Terry has turned into an awful shooter. He shot just 1/6 last night, which is almost good for him. He has become sad to watch and I wish that they hadn't signed him. He is really bad.
2. HELP RONDO OUT:
Usually when a team has a guy with a triple-double, they win. However, that wasn't the case at all last night. If they could score some points, then they would win a lot more games.
1. GOOD EFFORT THROUGHOUT:
The Celtics are a pathetic road team. If they are to win tonight they will have to play like champions. The Hawks are pretty good and I don't that the Celtics will be able to beat them if they play like they did in Detroit and Cleveland.
Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 7:30 pm ET. Live Game Updates will be available here.
I agree on limiting Terry's shots. He's been brutal. Just have no idea what has happened to his shot. We know he's better than how he's playing.
Pierce's shot has been very flat - no arc at all. Something's up with him also.
