It seems as if the Boston Celtics have finally found a rhythm.
After falling behind early and struggling against elite teams, the Celtics are winners of six of their last eight contests, including a home-and-home series with the Orlando Magic that saw both a fourth-quarter 87-56 trouncing in Boston and a 27-point comeback in Orlando.
At 10-10, the Celtics are hitting their stride and beginning to move up the Eastern Conference leaderboard, all of this in spite of boasting one of the oldest, if not the oldest, core of players in the NBA today. Despite the talent the Celtics possess, the miles are adding up, and it seems as if Boston can no longer compete with the likes of Miami and Chicago, both led by superior, younger talent.
Regardless of what happens in free agency this upcoming summer, there's still a season to be played. The Celtics will need to compensate in the short term in order to stay in playoff contention until future moves can be made.
Doc Rivers has already made a few adjustments, but what else can he and the coaching staff do?
