The Read & React: Cousins as a Celtic and a lack of bench production

Between now and February, will the Celtics average more three pointers or Cousins-to-Boston rumors? Boston Three Party (Jeff Nooney): The Celtics have been uncharacteristically good from long range this season. The addition of Al Horford has helped, as evidenced by his four three-pointer night against the Kings. And the combo of Bradley and Crowder is shooting great too. Boston ranks 8th in the league in 3P%, after finishing 28th last year. This game showed why that improvement is so important. As Jared Weiss noted, Sacramento ended up with 9 more possessions than Boston. But the Celtics...
