Why do the Boston Celtics struggle to close out games?
Why do the Boston Celtics struggle to close games? The Celtics have had trouble closing games all season against both good and bad clubs despite being an improved version of the team that represented the NBA’s Eastern Conference in the 2022 NBA Finals. What gives?
It’s a maddening conundrum as the organization gears up for what it hopes will be a deep run into the 2023 NBA postseason. Boston will need to get a handle on how it manages its game on both ends of the court in crunch time if it wants a realistic shot at returning to the league’s biggest stage this year.
To talk over where the Celtics are at in terms of closing out opponents and getting better at it, the hosts of “The Greg Hill Show” debated what ought to happen and why it is a problem in the first place on a clip released on the WEEI official YouTube channel.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
