BOSTON - If you see Glen Davis, please let him know. At this point in the postseason, he has no idea where to find himself.
Ive been nowhere to be found this whole playoffs, he said. I need to find myself.
Davis was left searching for words following the Celtics' Game 4 overtime loss to the Miami Heat on Monday night at TD Garden. Rather than providing his team with a necessary spark off the bench, the Celtics sixth man shot just 1-for-4 in nearly 17 minutes.
Im frustrated, he said. Really frustrated.
This isnt how Davis expected things to go. After all, he had stepped up many times before under postseason pressure. He entered the playoffs averaging a career-high 11.7 points in the regular season and looked forward to thriving on the big stage.
That hasnt been happening.
Instead, Davis has become an offensive non-factor in the Celtics' second unit. He has scored a total of 14 points in the first four games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. His average? Just 3.5 points per game.
I dont know where Im at, he said. Its my type of year. This is what I do. My years of big playing with the Celtics, playoff ball, this is when I play best. Its not showing right now.
Davis cant pinpoint when he lost himself on the court, but says that with the exception of scoring 14 points in Game 4 against the New York Knicks, he wasnt there in the first round, either.
He says it all starts with believing in himself again. That, of course, is easier said than done.
Now facing elimination on Wednesday night in Miami, Davis has less than 48 hours to figure it out.
Ive got to find Glen, he said. I dont know where Glens at. I have no idea whos playing right now.
