The Boston Celtics concluded the first half of their 66-game schedule on Wednesday evening against the Oklahoma City Thunder, who defeated the Green and White, 119-104.
The Celtics will now enjoy a few days off due to the NBA All-Star game on Sunday before returning to the hardwood next week when they travel to Cleveland. However, Boston certainly needs something or someone to spark their offense and defense, who’s won 15 of 32 contests thus far. Yet, what should the Celtics do? Should they rely on team president Danny Ainge to find their savior or keep things intact?
What are your thoughts on the Celtics? Would adding a new piece to the puzzle help Doc Rivers‘ crew reach the NBA Finals?
