    Celtics Beat 250: Chris Mannix | Boston Celtics Limp into Break

    Adam Kaufman makes his hosting debut on Celtics Beat


    Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports joins Adam Kaufman on this week’s Celtics Beat. Mannix is a Senior NBA Writer for Yahoo! and a NBA Analyst for NBC Sports Boston. Make no mistake about it: The Boston Celtics are not playing well. Adam and Chris try and figure out how the C’s can fix their defense. Does it all relate to the loss of Marcus Smart? Should fans and media place more blame on Brad Stevens? How does newly acquired Greg Monroe factor into this? Speaking of Marcus Smart, what does his next contract look like? Does Boston need to make a decision between Terry Rozier and Smart?

    Make sure you send your questions into Adam on Twitter (@AdamMKaufman). The good ones get shoutout during the show.
