Rajon Rondo's Keys to Getting Kevin Garnett and the Boston Celtics Back on Track
Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The Boston Celtics are 1-2, and besides a lack of solid defense, a lot of it has to do with a slow start for veteran Kevin Garnett

The 36-year-old is averaging 13 points and 7.7 rebounds to start the year while shooting just 46 percent from the field.  Last season, he shot 50 percent from the floor to the tune of 15.8 points and 8.2 boards per game.

The Celtics' defense isn't helping matters either, allowing 101.7 points per game compared to 89.3 from last year, but the fact of the matter is that the problems start with the offense. 

Rajon Rondo is the only one producing consistently while guys like Garnett, Jason Terry and Courtney Lee are struggling.  The men who should be contributing a lot on offense just aren't making their shots and it's hurting the team.

While it's still early and the Celtics will surely turn things around, this slow start is definitely something of a concern.  Keep in mind, this is the team that made it within one game of the NBA Finals last year and made enough moves during the offseason to get that far again in 2013, if not further.  However, to keep that goal within reach, Rondo and head coach Doc Rivers need to make some adjustments on offense.
