Stevens said after the Clippers' loss he would look inward for potential adjustments moving forward. It was the biggest blown lead by a Celtics squad since December 5, 2003.

If the front office in New Orleans is able to land a top pick in the upcoming draft and pull off a trade to land Tatum from Boston, it suddenly becomes at least possible that their rebuild is not as long as one would have expected. They were supposed to be unstoppable. The Celtics dropped a 115-111 decision to the defending champion Golden State Warriors as 3.5-point home dogs on January 26 and had not been in that role since December 21, when the Milwaukee Bucks defeated them 120-107 as 1.5-point road favorites at TD Garden. Guys are hanging their head. We're not competing at a high level. He noted multiple times that the recent stretch - even when the team was winning - has not been "fun". "I don't see the joy in the game". Stevens has struggled to find the ideal balance in the team's lineups and bring together a locker room that isn't yet divided, but admittedly isn't unified. So far it is a work in progress.

Christian Hackenberg struggles in AAF debut
The AAF is a much higher caliber of play than a lot of people might realize, and Hackenberg clearly isn't ready after week one. The league's inaugural games kicked off this past weekend, pitting all eight teams against each other.

When Morris was asked about what has to change he started with the way the Celtics' carry themselves, "we're going to lose games but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness". Jaylen Brown, 22, and Terry Rozier, 24, also keys to Boston's deep playoff run, have seen their minutes drop with the return of Hayward and Irving. While neither the Lakers or Denver Nuggets rank in the middle of the National Basketball Association in defense, Philadelphia torched both teams and is averaging 130 points per game with their new-look starting five, while shooting 47.7 percent from the 3-point line and 53.8 percent from the field.

Gordon Hayward scored 19 to pace the Celtics, who just absorbed a heartbreaking 129-128 loss to the Lakers with Rajon Rondo burying the buzzer-beater.
