We’re supposed to be a defensive team, (but) we give up a hundred points every night. We’re still searching trying to find out who we want to be for this season.”
No Bull: Celtics ‘D’ Brutal – CSNNE
At this point, Celtics fans may anoint Avery Bradley as the next pope if he is able to come in and turn this thing around. To put it bluntly, the Celtics defense has been abysmal this season for much of the year.

Without the shooting guard in the lineup this season, the C’s have yet to find their defensive identity, and the team’s inconsistent, up-and-down play has persisted much longer than many would have anticipated. With plenty of new faces in the mix for 2012-13, some growing pains...
With the Celtics hovering around .500 this holiday season, fans will have plenty of wants.
There are the obvious ones: Wins, Avery Bradley back on the court and in a recent Bleacher Report article, Paul Pierce said he wants a championship for Christmas.
