Ball Scrutiny: 3 Reasons Why Celtics Fall Against Knicks


Another downfall against the reigning team this season. Boston Celtics is slowly collapsing and is losing its grip at the top. It would be interesting at the same time helpful to know what are the possible reasons that triggered a strong team like Celtics to lose.


1. With a strong point guard lies an inefficient center

It is noticeable also to Warriors. Knowing that the Dubs have incredible point guards, they have a weak center which cannot contribute that much even in winning games of the team.

Now same with the Boston Celtics, they have Kyrie Irving which is undeniably a killer scoring machine popping out at any spot on the court. Aron Baynes, Celtics' center could not contribute much particularly during the Knicks game scoring only 4 points after 22 minutes of play.

In fact he barely touched the ball with only 4 attempts in 22 minutes. All he does is run the floor back and forth.


2. Sufficient but Inefficient

Just like James Harden's 51 point lost, Kyrie Irving's 32 point loss against Knicks is a similar story. Kyrie shot 12-27 from the field, less than 50 percent and it is too risky. Why? The subsequent disaster is also near what Rockets have recently experienced.


3. Battle for the boards

The man who shot the most missed the most yet scored the most. Nevertheless, missed shots may cost the game if not rebounded. And that's exactly what had happened. Knicks hurt Boston in rebounds 60 - 45.


Conclusion

Team's with great guards must try to relay the offensive focus on the unnoticed big guys inside. It would perhaps bolster the offensive intensity of the team given that everyone regardless of position would have the chance to deliver.
