5 Reasons for the Boston Celtics' Sluggish Start

The Boston Celtics are associated with winning. So when the team can't seem to stop losing, something must be very wrong.

The Celtics have a 6-6 record, currently fourth in the Atlantic Division. For a team that was designed to win championships, the sluggish start to the 2012-13 season is a bit unnerving. The offseason hype that surrounded the new and improved Celtics is almost laughable now.

So why can't the Celtics find their stride? The team known for its lock-down defense is now struggling to show aggressiveness on the defensive end. The new additions to the team are also struggling to find their roles, which puts more pressure on the starters.

It's still only the beginning of the season, but the Celtics need to dig themselves out of the hole before it gets too deep.
