The Celtics are having as hard a time coming to grips with the losing as we are. Maybe moreso.
"It’s tough,’’ Ray Allen said of the Celtics’ 5-9 start. "I’ve played on teams where you lose a lot. But, now, this locker room is - we’re not losers. This hurts everybody deeply, so we’ve got to figure out how to get better and how to help each other get better.’’
Meanwhile, Doc is trying to deflect blame - perhaps to save the players' pride just a bit.
"I told the guys this is more of me and my staff," Doc Rivers said. "We’ve got to figure out something with our offense. The offense is awful. It’s funny, even at halftime we had a ton of open shots, but they’re still all jump shots. "Nothing in the paint, no drives, and that part you can say is Rondo. But we’ve got to do a better job of moving the ball and getting it low. The times we did that, I thought we were effective. But not enough."
