After an historic start to the 2022-23 NBA season on the offensive end of the court, the Boston Celtics have come back down to earth. And they have done it with something of a thud.
The team’s offensive rating, buoyed by that start, remains strong for the season. The Celtics rank third overall in the category.
But in the last month, that rating has fallen precipitously — particularly since the Celtics lost veteran point guard Marcus Smart. Is it time to start worrying about the Celtics’ offense?
The hosts of the CLNS Media “Garden Report” podcast discussed this very issue in a recent video.
Take a look at the clip embedded above to hear what they had to say.
