Heinsohn: Have to accentuate players' strengths


Heinsohn: Have to accentuate players' strengths

Gary Tanguay, Donny Marshall, and Tommy Heinsohn discuss what the Celtics need to do to change the outcomes of games for them going forward.

Marshall talks about how Doc Rivers has been able to manage big personalities in the past, but now he's got a team with a lot of guys like Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, and Brandon Bass who are smaller personalities.

How does Rivers get what he needs out them by managing those personalities?

Heinsohn has some questions of his own regarding how players on the C's are being used -- or not being used.

"What can they bring to this team? What is the basis of their game? What is the strength of their game? How are we not using the strength of their game?"

Check out the video for more good insight from the guys.
