Downing-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics need a point guard and Morris will need a greater role when Jamal Murray returns. As the Celtics try to escape from the doldrums of mediocrity, it’s become abundantly clear that point guard is one of their most pressing needs. Dennis Schroder’s inconsistency can be maddening, and his play is a microcosm of that of the whole team. Marcus Smart is still a walking Tommy Point, as always, but his talents may be put to better use as a sixth man. Payton...
