The Boston Celtics are reeling down the stretch as the regular season winds down. A win over the Indiana Pacers would go a long way for the Celtics as they still search for chemistry.

The Celtics have not been the same team since trading Kendrick Perkins at the trading deadline. The Celtics acquired Jeff Green among other players off waivers, but have not had the same winning attitude since.
The Celtics nearly squandered another game Sunday night in Minnesota, but it’s likely their coach’s words were ringing in their ears as they held on for a win. After Monday night’s comeback win in New York, Doc Rivers said he called his team “soft” at halftime. Then the Celtics came home and lost to Memphis and Charlotte.
As for failing to heed the competition from less talented teams and letting them hang around until they create trouble, head coach Doc Rivers said, “I always say it. You screw around with the game and the game will screw around with you. Either I’m doing a terrible job getting to them or right now they just aren’t there. I don’t know why. It’s my job to figure it out though.”
The Celtics are dealing with injuries too. The Celtics are saying there is nothing serious with the jammed right pinkie that kept Rajon Rondo out of Sunday’s game against the Timberwolves. Delonte West is concerned about his right ankle, believing a bone chip has made the problem linger since he strained it originally in a Feb. 27 practice.
The Celtics are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 games following a win and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games as a road favorite.
The Celtics continue to struggle as they lose to the Indiana Pacers.
