1. Rondo is playing terrible defense. He is the first line of defense on point guards and they are getting any look they want at the basket. He doesn't even attempt to get around a screen and he closes out on no one. His defense is killing us right now.
2. Jeff Green's body language is awful. I have not seen him hustle on any play yet. He looks like he is moping around like no one invited him to the dance. GET AGGRESSIVE GREEN!! His defense is awful too, he is lost 90% of the time, he is never in a defensive stance, and he closes out on NO ONE. Open shots? Yes... by whoever Green is guarding!
3. Team Defense...awful...shot blocking...non-existent (is Darko hurt? Can Fab get 2 minutes and maybe one or two blocks for us? how bad could they be?) Opposing guards and bigs shoot right over Sullinger at will because he can't move quick enough or block any shots. Our entire team defensive aggression is terrible, no one is closing out on the high amount of WIDE OPEN SHOOTERS, and we are getting beat backdoor at will.
P.S. This team needs to stop reading the headlines that it is a contender and play like one!! Forge the win against Washington, we played bad again. Courtney Lee, get in the gym and shoot 500 3's a day because it would be awesome if you made a wide open 3 every once in a while!
DAMN CELTS!! COME ON!!!!
