Need A Little Help (Defense)

The Boston Globe

"That’s our biggest concern,’’ said Rivers, "if a guy’s going to get beat off the dribble, that next guy being there, taking the charges, the next guy getting there and putting his body in the way and then the next guy getting on that guy’s guy. That’s the next step we have to make.’’ Reviewing the game-clinching sequence in Wednesday’s loss, a few Celtics brought up help defense. So much attention was paid to Durant that Jeff Green was able to stroll from under the basket to the 3-point line in front of the Celtics’ bench and hit a three. The Thunder repeated the play, and the Celtics didn’t adjust to it.
