The Celtics cannot score. I repeat, the Celtics cannot score. Just another hideous offensive performance tonight by the boys in green as they lost 101-92 to Chicago.
Here are the numbers: 35% from the floor, 20% from 3.
How many ways can we dissect it? And at what point do we criticize shot selection? Evan Turner and his 16% 3 FG should NOT be launching three pointers on critical possessions. Jared Sullinger and his 29% 3 FG should not be launching contested 3s 8 seconds into the shot clock no matter what the score.
I’ve reached the point where I want to see RJ Hunter or James Young on the floor for 30 minutes a night taking 15 shots.
There’s one highlight worth watching: Evan Turner passing the ball off Pau Gasol’s face
The offense isn’t going to come around. Unless Danny Ainge pulls off a deal for someone who can score, the Celtics are going to languish on the cusp of the 8th seed in the Eastern conference.
