Are the Boston Celtics shooting too many 3-pointers?

We all know the age-old NBA adage of “live by the 3, die by the 3,” and for the most part, the Boston Celtics have been living quite well with their reliance on the shot from beyond the arc. But at times the trey-heavy shot diet has caused the Celtics the basketball version of indigestion — something that could easily doom the team in a tight playoff series.

Such was the concern among fans and analysts in the worst such example of this 3-point shooting drought that has hit Boston thus far this season which saw the Celtics connect on just 21% of their treys against the New York Knicks late in the month of February.

This begs the simple question of whether the Boston Celtics are shooting too many 3-point shots.

And that was asked by the hosts of the CLNS Media “Garden Report” podcast; take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
