‘I think we need more balance,’ says Boston’s Malcolm Brogdon of Celtics’ 3-point heavy offense

“They came out, they were ready to play,” explained Boston Celtics reserve guard Malcolm Brogdon via CLNS Media, detailing why the Chicago Bulls were able to beat Boston 121-107 Monday night, the quiet part being that the Celtics were not ready to play against a hungry Bulls squad. “They’re going through some things over there, so I think they are trying to get more locked in, they’re trying to win some games.”

“I feel like they think that their back’s against the wall, so they played with urgency tonight, and I don’t think we played with that urgency,” he continued.

Boston also leaned heavily on their 3-point shooting on a night when the team as a whole did not have it going from beyond the arc, which Brogdon noted. “I think that we’re such a high-level shooting team from the arc; we rely on that.”

“I think we need more balance, especially if those 3s aren’t falling. We’re not making shots out there — we’ve got to be able to play inside the arc and still defend,” he suggested.

“That’s one thing that can’t slip regardless of how we’re shooting the ball on the offensive end.”
