Marcus Morris: Some Celtics ‘aren’t playing as well as they want and their moods haven’t been the best’
The Celtics are a disappointing 9-9 with one of the NBA’s worst offenses. This isn’t what anyone in Boston expected.
One of the few Celtics exceeding expectations – Marcus Morris – sees problems running deep.
Morris, via Jay King of The Athletic:
Morris doesn’t name anyone, but there are no shortage of Celtics who’ve disappointed and haven’t always displayed ideal body language. My guesses start with Jaylen Brown, Terry Rozier and Gordon Hayward.
Morris is right: Boston should show better energy. That would lead to better results. But it can sometimes work the other way. If the Celtics play better, their energy will likely improve.
Ultimately, Boston probably has enough talent to get through this. And then, one way or another, everything will snowball for the better.
In the meantime, it’s all frustrating.
