The Boston Celtics have had a considerably slow start to the season, but it's not too late to turn it around.
The Celtics' problem hasn't been a lack of talent or focus. Instead, the team's biggest downfalls are a lack of team chemistry and consistency. Boston made major moves to the roster in the offseason, so the new players are still trying to adjust to Doc Rivers' system.
The Celtics must be willing to leave their comfort zones in order to better the team as a whole. Jason Terry was thrust into the starting shooting guard role for a while, even though he's known for being the ultimate sixth man. In addition, star point guard Rajon Rondo is transitioning from a facilitator to a scorer.
If the Celtics can learn to work together under Rivers' system, the team's slow start will be long behind them by spring.
Here are five keys to the Celtics bouncing back from their slow start.
