It’s possible that when you are reading this tomorrow, the Boston Celtics will look very different. After all, the current squad didn’t exactly inspire confidence against the Lakers tonight. Dwight Howard abused the Celtics inside, which opened things up for…everyone else. The rebounding situation passed “desperate” a long time ago, the point guard position continues to be a thorn in the side and the bulk of the scoring must be shouldered by two players with 32 combined seasons behind them. Whenever Kevin Garnett sits, the team flounders on both ends, and whenever an opponent applies full-court pressure, the offense is thrown completely out of whack. It’s a tenuous situation at best, a potentially disastrous situation at worst.
