[Guide] Ray Allen left at the beginning of the season. After the season ended, Pierce and Garnett also left.
It has also become the last light and shadow of the era of the Big Three of the Celtics, which is embarrassing.
Interpretation of data
Regular season ranking changes: 4 → 7 (Eastern)
Winning rate: 50.6% (41 wins and 40 losses, 27 wins and 13 losses at home/14 wins and 27 losses away)
Points scored/losed: 96.5/96.7
The decline of the Celtics this season is more obvious, and the ranking has dropped by 3 places, which also shows the decline of the Celtics’ dominance.
And the poor away record (worst among the top eight in the Eastern Conference) also confirmed the decline of the Celtics.
From the statistical point of view, the Celtics’ scoring ability has not declined too much, thanks to the team’s overall style of play.
However, the Celtics’ defense is no longer so strong, and it has long lost the level of the league’s best defense in previous years.
At the beginning of the regular season, the Celtics played very well. Garnett came to the old tree in spring, Pierce also maintained an excellent competitive state, and Rondo, who was at his peak, spread his feet and refreshed his own.
Unfortunately, the knife of the years did not hurt anyone, but the shadow of injury shrouded the sky of Boston.
Rondo, the backcourt core, was injured and was out for the season; the potential insider Salinger was injured and was out for the season… Bradley was injured, and Garnett was also injured… I really can’t blame the society, but myself.
If it weren’t for the blow of injuries, the Celtics could have played a better report card this season.
Pierce and Garnett have already gone to the Nets, and the head coach Rivers has also left for Los Angeles. Several iconic figures of the iron-blooded Celtics team have left, and only Rondo is left.
Can the injured Rondo carry the Celtics on his shoulders?
We will see you in the new season!
