Comcast SportsNet Celtics analyst Donny Marshall says the Celtics played a lot of individual basketball in their 99-88 loss to the Bucks.
"They have the pieces to get up big on teams early and then get some rest for KG and Paul Pierce," Marshall said, adding that such a scenario hasn't happened in the first two games.
The big reason? "No rhythm. No flow. No trust."
Marshall said he got a text from a former teammate who was at the game and said the Celtics were playing "a lot of individual basketball."
That's a point Coach Doc Rivers reiterated in his postgame comments.
"It wasn't a selfish thing," Marshall said. "They're still trying to figure themselves out as a unit, particularly on the defensive end."
