The Boston Celtics have been maddeningly — perhaps even consistently — inconsistent this season, unable to find a rhythm amidst one of the league’s toughest schedules in the month of December. Injuries and a large number of players going in and out of the NBA’s health and safety protocols haven’t helped the situation.
Compounding this, head coach Ime Udoka has not been playing his best shooters much, and several players seem stuck in a rut when it comes to efficiency from the field. What is the root cause or causes behind the stagnant offensive play plaguing the Celtics in 2021-22 so far?
ESPN analyst Tim Bontemps has a few ideas about what could be the primary drivers of Boston’s uneven season to date, which he shared in a recent video produced by the Bristol, Connecticut-based sports network he works for.
Watch the video embedded above to hear what Bontemps has to say about the Celtics’ woes and how they might fix them — could it be that things are less dire than they seem?
