Boston Celtics

What Celtics need to be mindful of after loss to Pistons


Marcus Smart has recognized he’s prone to getting himself in trouble with the NBA after referees agitate him throughout a game.


Though, on the whole, it does seem like the Celtics’ emotions are starting to get the better of them, which was part of the problem in Tuesday’s 116-103 loss.


“I just feel like we got comfortable winning early and we thought that was just supposed to happen,” Jaylen Brown said.


The good thing for the Celtics is this is all happening in the middle of the season — after they’ve already proven to themselves they can hang with any team in the NBA.


Furthermore, the ups and downs haven’t led to any visible tension between the players.


Otherwise, they’re going to run into trouble if they get into a serious playoff battle, in which they’ll constantly face adversity.
