Gary Tanguay throws the open question to Tommy Heinsohn: What's wrong with the Celtics?
"There's two teams that were on the top, that are having trouble getting back on top - the Lakers and the Celtics," says Heinsohn, who adds that the Celtics are further along than the Lakers.
"Right now the Celtics need to get on the same page. They've got nine new parts. Every one of those guys played a different type of basketball where they played before."
After an unsuccessful experiment with Jason Terry as a starter, he was back in his more traditional role as Sixth Man on Saturday, and performed well. Terry scored 18 points including 4 3-pointers, which tied his season high.
With the loss, the Celtics fall to 12-11 this season (4-7 on the road).
The Celtics reportedly are "expected" to talk to the Mavericks about a deal for Andrew Bogut, according to scout.com, but negotiations would be "dependent on what bigger move Boston can make".
Bogut, 32, is in the final year of his contract. The 7-foot center, while healthy, has played in only 26 games this year and is averaging just three points a game. But he's also averaging 8.3 rebounds in 22.4 minutes, and rebounding has been one of the Celtics' big areas of weakness this year. The C's rank 27th in the league in reboundinh, and 26th in defensive rebounding.
According to scout.com, the Mavs would part with Bogut for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's first-round draft choices.
