Kyrie Irving Says The Celtics Are ‘Almost At’ Rock Bottom

A bounce back win against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday moved them to 11-10 on the season and while their record could be worse, the jigsaw puzzle of fitting all of their pieces together is proving to be the toughest task.

In what many saw as the flawless low risk, high reward play by taking Harry Giles with the 20th pick in the 2017 draft, the Kings are starting to see some potential out of the former top recruit in his class. Giles sat out all of last season to strengthen his knees after tearing both ACL ligaments on separate incidents but has now become a valuable role piece off the bench with Bagley. Up next, they'll battle the Cavaliers on Friday night. On opening night on October 16, Boston defeated Philadelphia 105-87 behind 23 points and nine rebounds from Tatum.

"That's how we're used to playing".

Without Brown, who suffered a tailbone injury in Boston's 113-104 loss to Dallas on Saturday, Nov. 24, Boston is without one of their best forwards. "If we lose, it's on me".

Of course, Davis is an elite talent, and the package the Pelicans would receive -from the Celtics or anyone else - would have to represent that.

Davis scored five straight points on a short fade as he was fouled and a pair of free throws to cut it to 93-87 with almost nine minutes to play. But as Mannix points out, "To get something, you have to give somthing".

But it's clear that for now, the Celtics need Marcus Smart, his defense, and most importantly, his energy, on the floor to start games. 'But I like a lot of things I see in our team this season, and I'm not going to be impatient. 'You know me. I'm always open to doing something, ' Ainge told the Boston Herald. Clearly, the Celtics are not what we expected them to be this year, particularly given the increased expectations after last season's Eastern Conference Finals run.

"We don't impose our fear and will on other teams", [Marcus] Smart said. 'Look, I'm always looking to improve our team, but every one of our players is capable of playing better than they've played'. To be eligible, the players must have achieved one of three accolades during the first four seasons of their career: MVP award, Defensive Player of the Year award, or two All-NBA selections. "We have to get that swagger back".
