Owners of Boston Celticstickets certainly do not like what they are seeing from their team. Boston has had a rough start for the season and their play of late is something that presents a very big problem for the team moving forward. After winning nine of their past 10 games in late January and early February, the Celtics has now lost six of their last seven games. More trouble is coming in the way of the Celtics as their next matchup is against the league-leading Oklahoma City Thunder.
Boston was riding a give-game winning streak before they faced their arch nemesis Los Angeles Lakers in February 9. But after an overtime loss at the hands of their rival, everything went south for the team. In this rough stretch, Boston lost to the Toronto Raptors, Detroit Pistons (twice), Chicago Bulls, and most recently Dallas Mavericks. Their only win in the last seven games came against the Bulls in February 12.
During the stretch of losses by the Celtics, Boston has lost its key players to injuries, personal matters, and even suspension. First it was all-star forward Kevin Garnett who missed their February 15 game due to a sore left hip and then missed the past two games due to personal matters. He returned in that win versus Chicago. After Garnett went down, it was reserve forward Brandon Bass who missed the past five games due to lingering knee injury.
During their February 19 game against the Detroit Pistons, all-star point guard Rajon Rondo got ejected in the third quarter after flipping the ball at an official. It earned him a double technical and an automatic ejection for such conduct. The league office took notice of the incident and suspended the 26-year-old former Kentucky player for two games. Rondo already served the first game suspension in the Celtics’ loss to the Mavericks and would miss their game before the All-Star break against the Thunder. The incident involving Rondo stemmed after the six-year veteran got frustrated about a non-call on a third-quarter drive. Rondo is averaging 14.8 points (career-high), 9.5 assists, 4.9 rebounds, and 1.6 steals per game.
In their loss to the Mavericks, two Celtics players were added to the injured list. Starting center Jermaine O’neal left the game in the early part of the third quarter after sustaining a sprained left wrist. Reports say that the injury was suffered late in the first half after O’neal drew a charge on Mavericks guard Dominique Jones. Backup forward Chris Wilcox left late in the third quarter after suffering a right abductor strain. Both players did not return on the game and there is still no official word from the team whether they are good to go against Oklahoma City.
Losses are already piling up for the team and owner of Boston Celtics tickets are not used in seeing their team suffer from losses since Garnett and Ray Allen came in 2008. With the all-star break approaching and only Paul Pierce representing the team in Orlando, this might be the best time for the team to regroup and get some rest after the first half grind. Having a roster with an average age of 29 years, rest is definitely needed.
