The Celtics have won two straight games.

Michael Felger has one question for Celtics Insider Sherrod Blakely, why are they trying to win?

"You got to look at the body of work." said Blakely, "They lost fourteen out of seventeen, they're going to be a bottom five team this year. They'll wind up with one of the top five or six picks. Frankly, that's where they should be."

Blakely explains to Felger that the Celtics team is not built to lose games on purpose.

"These guys are competitors and they're just not built to do that stuff." continued Blakely, "The Celtics have positioned themselves to be a team near the bottom, but obviously these guys are competitive, they're not out there to (lose) every night.

"At the end of the day, look at their roster relative to the rest of the NBA. They are exactly where they should be."
