Why Are Celtics Playing Without Passion? | Celtics Stuff Live

    Celtics Stuff Live's Justin Poulin & Jon Duke examine why the Celtics seem to be playing without the same fire from last season.


    The Celtics finally put together a wire to wire win on Monday against New Orleans but prior to that their recent stretch of play has not been pretty. Questions are beginning to pile up as everyone tries to understand how this team continues to disappoint. The word of this week is clearly “Purpose.” The team seems to play without it, particularly offensively, as the team seems to sleepwalk through its aimless efforts in scoring the ball. But that isn’t meant to mask the highly flammable nature of the team’s pick and roll defense after J.J. Barea joined an ever growing list of players killing the C’s from that set.

    Celtics Stuff Live’s Justin Poulin & Jon Duke on what’s ailing the Celtics and if it can be fixed.
