This team doesn't have enough high grade offensive talent. So if it is going to make a run in the playoffs, I believe it's going to be on the back of it's defense.
Danny needs to strongly consider trading some of these supporting cast players for superior defensive options (interior defense to help KG + better defensive wing behind Pierce).
I think guys like Ariza and Okafor could be major additions to the Celtics.
Agree, though some of it has to do with time of year......we had a great defensive team last year after Bradley came back......we need to find a way back to that without burning out pierce and Garnett. Okafor would help.....haven't seen Ariza in ages..
