Why do the Celtics struggle against the bottom feeders of the NBA? With back to back losses against the L.A Lakers and and the Brooklyn Nets the Celtics are looking for answers! In Brad Stevens we all trust, but I'm going to help Brad out here. The Celtics have too much mediocre depth! We have a lot of pretty good players so Stevens plays 11 guys every game . Its genius right?
Isaiah, Crowder, Bradley and Turner are the Celtics best offensive players, but often find themselves sitting on the bench for extended periods of time! Now I'm not an NBA player, but I have played a ton of basketball in my life and I know that basketball is all about getting reps and finding your rhythm on the court. How can you get any rhythm when you play for 6 to 8 mins at a time then sit on the pine for 15 minutes before you get back in the game? I have seen many games where Bradley or Crowder knock down a few 3-pointers to start the game then get yanked for Jonas Jerebko and sit on the bench for too long. Now all rhythm and feel for the game is lost!! With scoring at times is a struggle for the C's, Brad must ride the hot hand more and shorten up the bench to allow players to keep rolling. Am I right? I'm not delusional am I?
Comment below your thoughts on this player rotation Stevens has going and tell me if you think I out of bounds! Lets hope the Celtics can bounce back tomorrow and get revenge against the Nets at the Barclays Center!
