The Boston Celtics need to share the ball in crunch time

The Boston Celtics do not have many flaws, but perhaps one of the biggest warts that still remains with this iteration of the storied ball club is the team’s late-game execution. The Celtics need to share the ball in crunch time to avoid teams loading up on star forward Jayson Tatum.

Granted, they still want the St. Louis native taking the last shot more often than he doesn’t. But at least in recent contests this season, Boston’s crunch time go-to has been far too easy to predict, and could use some of the several All-Star level talents around Tatum to help keep defenders on their toes.

What use is a decoy if that decoy is never anything else?

On a recent episode, hosts of the CLNS Media “How Bout Them Celtics!” and “Talkin’ Cs” podcasts weighed in on what Boston could do instead.
