The Boston Celtics’ recent bad news about Danilo Gallinari’s ACL injury only puts more pressure on the team’s
two primary stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum to learn to finish games better
than they did in the 2022 NBA Finals — and truth be told, for quite some time before that.
The tendency for the Celtics to run out of gas late in games is not exactly a mystery to the team itself nor the opponents
who play them, and such a glaring weakness is clearly a top priority for the season to come.
And one such
opponent sat down with Heavy’s Steve Bulpett to talk about that
tendency in a recent interview behind a veil of anonymity.
“It doesn’t make sense,” said the anonymous scout and former NBA coach.
“I had guys that wanted to take it on themselves to do everything — every coach has,” they added.
