Why are the Boston Celtics among the NBA’s worst fourth quarter teams? Despite having two 2021 All-Stars and a 2020 All-Star on their roster, the Celtics continue to struggle to finish off even some of the league’s least-competitive teams.

Something of a mystery to even ardent fans and analysts both, it is increasingly becoming a topic of conversation to the chagrin of Boston’s supporters. Sports Illustrated’s Madelyn Burke, Rohan Nadkarni, and Michael Pina all gave their takes on why the Celtics struggle to find a rhythm when it comes to winning in the fourth quarter in the latest episode of the “Crossover” podcast.

While it could be something that may be a product of the unusual season itself, it’s a topic worthy of analysis given what we’ve seen from Boston of late.

Check out the video embedded above to hear what this trio of experts have to say about the Celtics fourth-quarter woes.
