BOSTON Courtney Lee can often be found on the floor getting shots up before most games.
But he arrived prior toSaturday night's game against Philadelphia a little earlier than usual, as clear a sign as any to where his head was at.
Lee refuses to dwell on the open 3-pointer he missed in the closing seconds of Boston's 95-94 overtime loss to Philadelphia Frida night.
But that doesn't mean he's forgotten about it, either.
In fact, it may very well be exactly what he needs to get on track offensively.
"I'm always working, trying to get better," he toldCSNNE.com. "In a way, it's good that we see these guys (Philadelphia) so soon after, get a little revenge."
Lee added, "we had a lot of missed opportunities in that game, myself included. That's my shot right there."
Lee was referring to the open corner 3-pointer he air balled with about 26 seconds to play, a shot that is one of his favorites.
A year ago, he was second in the NBA to former Celtic Ray Allen in 3-point shooting percentage in the corner.
A career 38 percent shooter from 3-point range, Lee is connecting on a career-low 25.9 percent this season.
While the late-game miss against Philadelphia weighs on his mind now, he's more concerned about continuing to find ways to help the Celtics win games.
"I'm not worried about my shot too much. I know it's going to come," he said. "I just have to find ways to help this team win if my shot's not falling, that's all. It'll all work out in the end."
