The Los Angeles Clippers decisively defeated the Boston Celtics 115-96 on this past Saturday night at TD Garden, avenging their 37-point home loss to Boston in the month of December. Currently, the best five teams in the NBA, record-wise, are the Celtics, the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Milwaukee Bucks, and the authors of Boston’s latest bad loss, the Clippers.
In their last series against these top four teams, the Celtics have a 1-and-3 record, including two home losses and two significant blowouts. After the game at the Garden, CLNS Media’s Bobby Manning and Josue Pavon reported on the match’s aftermath, diving into whether this pattern of performance against the league’s top teams is a cause for concern for Boston.
Take a look at the clip embedded below to hear what the duo had to say about this concerning pattern that is starting to emerge when the Celtics play top teams.
