Jaylen Brown almost leads a comeback and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Rockets

Jaylen Brown almost leads a comeback and 9 other takeaways from Celtics/Rockets

Boston fell behind big and couldn’t quite dig out of the hole 1. The Celtics struggled once again to contain James Harden. This isn’t uncommon, as every team has challenges with stopping Harden. But at times Boston made it far too easy for Harden to score, especially at the rim. A lot of this came early on, when Harden would draw Aron Baynes or Marcus Morris on a switch and take them right to the hoop. This play is particularly concerning though, because this one involves Marcus Smart and Al Horford, who are the two best defenders on the Celtics. The screen is never really set, yet...

There may be some detritus from the trade deadline and rumor mill, but they’re finally healthy with Aron Baynes back from an eleven-game absence and have eighteen games before the playoffs start in just over a month. The cause of the current slump has been hard to diagnose. There are games where they look...
