Stevens Can’t Coach Killer Instinct Mentality

The 4-9 Boston Celtics  next opponent will be the 11-4 San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs like the Celtics are both in third place in their perspective divisions. The Spurs are led by veterans Tony Parker,Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard. The Celtics like last year at this time are beating themselves. The latest loss was a 109 102 defeat  to the Chicago Bulls. The Celtics one of the more potent offensive teams in the league this year are once again seeing huge leads slip away and end up as losses . The Celtics averaging  104 points per game  are one of the worst teams defensively. For the Celtics guard Avery Bradley, and forward Brandon Bass are the teams top defensive players. Rookie point guard Marcus Smart is recuperating from a high ankle sprain and has recently returned to practice. Smart was drafted not only for his shooting capabilities but also for his defensive skills. He should return to action within a week. Head coach Brad Stevens can’t coach a killer instinct mentality but on the other hand he can’t let any more thirty point leads slip away either.
