It’s no secret that the Boston Celtics’ performance in the first round has been rather disappointing thus far.
A couple players have stepped up to give the team its best chance of victory. However, the majority of them are simply hurting the cause.
It’s just a testament to the notion that you can only win as a team.
Thanks to sloppy play, the Celtics found themselves in a 3-0 hole against the New York Knicks. They were facing the possibility of exiting in the opening round of the playoffs for just the first time since Kevin Garnett arrived in 2007. The team is 56-39 in six postseasons since.
Boston has regained form and won the last two, forcing a Game 6. It’s only the 11th time a team has taken the series to six games after falling behind 3-0.
Do the Celtics have enough left in the tank? Or is the team only prolonging the inevitable?
Only time will tell for Boston.
