Scalabrine: The Celtics just can't take it to the next level'

The Celtics lost their fifth straight game Thursday night, falling to the New York Knicks 89-86.

Brian Scalabrine and Kyle Draper break it down.

Scal attributes the loss to bad spacing, hesitation on offense, and a crowded workplace.

But Kyle Draper notes that we're more than halfway through the season. Are the C's dealing with the same problems? Where do the excuses end?

"I think it has to do with maybe the personnel, and maybe this team just doesn't fit in with each other," Scalabrine said. "I think all these players are all tremendous basketball players, but it just doesn't seem like they have what it takes to get to that next level. We're talking about being a championship team. In Boston we're talking about raising banners. Maybe they just don't have that and maybe they have to make adjustments to the lineup."
