The Celtics dropped their second straight game, and seven of their last nine, with a 110-100 loss to the Timberwolves. They now have just a 1.5 game lead on the 8th-seeded Bucks, who will are currently set to play the Heat in the first round. Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen joined Gary Tanguay and Mike Felger to talk about the C's needing to get it together over the rest of the regular season and go into the playoffs with some confidence and some kind of identity.

"I think you start to try to win some games," Thomsen said. "Enough of this triple-A lineup stuff. You can't rush Garnett. They're saying maybe Friday. So if he comes back Friday, and you get everybody else back playing, you got to try to start winning some games and start trying to get something together. A lot of these guys have never been a playoff situation with the Celtics before, and you just can't take for granted that they're going to be right there when the playoffs start. And there's going to be no margin for error."

According to Thomsen, if the Celtics are healthy, the team the Celtics should want to play in the first round is the Knicks.
