Jesus Christ… one bad game out of the Celtics and I see a deluge of “oh, we’ll never repeat with all these turnovers” comments.
Well, I’m gonna keep this short and sweet.
- 2007-2008 Celtics: 14.4 turnovers per game.
- 2008-2009 Celtics: 14.5 turnovers per game.
So can it with the “turnovers are gonna kill us” stuff. A bad stretch while missing a third of your team and integrating two new players who are forced to play big minutes (one of them being a point guard forced to start twice after a year and a half off) doesn’t mean squat.
The Celtics are turning the ball over at the same rate they did last year and we were fine.
And what pisses me off most is you made me quote Rick Pitino.
