Needless to say, things haven't quite gone as planned for the Boston Celtics this season.
Currently fourth in the Atlantic Division and seventh in the Eastern Conference with a lousy 11-9 record, Boston certainly had higher aspirations for the first season after reloading following the loss of Big Three member Ray Allen.
The combination of Courtney Lee and Jason Terry has underwhelmed at times, Jeff Green has yet to be consistently explosive, and there still isn't a clear-cut big man to replace Kendrick Perkins, who was traded in early 2011 for Green.
That being said, there are a handful of things that we've learned about this team and their immediate competition; some good, some bad.
Luckily, it's still early December and there's plenty of time left to fix the issues involved and maintain the successes.
