All season long, the Celtics have been like a car that is just too old to be kept on the road. However, the car has extreme sentimental value because it has been reliable for so long. Pieces have continued to break down or fall off, but hey, that's nothing a little duct tape or Jordan Crawford can't fix.
Recently, a key part of that engine broke down and unfortunately, the part Boston needs is stuck in transit for the next couple weeks. Kevin Garnett is hurt, and will rest for the next few games, making it even more difficult for this Celtics car to run into the playoffs.
Right now, Boston is backing into the postseason. With five straight losses, the Celtics have lost their way and are in the process of doing serious damage control.
If this car is to travel a little bit further and earn an inspection sticker, there are some glaring fixes that need to be made.
