Jack Jemsek takes the opportunity to look back on the teams struggles and recent rebound.
I think we can all finally breathe easier now with these 4 wins, but losing 7 of 9 ratchets up the anxiety in any championship-driven fan base like the C’s have, and so we want to diagnose and prescribe a remedy to the following potential problems condensed from the 20-item list from Celticsblog.com:
- The starters are getting old and tired and losing focus on meaningless road trips, especially against the younger athletic teams.
- The bench is horrible. In fact it is “badly constructed, with no size, little ball-handling, a shortage of outside shooting, very little versatility and not enough quality.”
- It’s the coaching – Doc’s rotations are much too conservative, and he isn’t playing the bench players enough that would appear to provide exactly what the Celtics need.
