Boston Celtics Struggling to Build Chemistry
With a slew of veterans with varying levels of experience, the Boston Celtics have the appearance of a veteran team.
But as Celtics coach Doc Rivers points out, there’s more to having a veteran team than simply throwing together a bunch of guys who have been around the NBA block a few times.
“Where I think people get mixed up, there’s a difference between a veteran team and a lot of veterans on a team,” Rivers said. “This is not a veteran team. This team hasn’t been together.”
With so many new faces, Rivers was optimistic that they would develop a good rhythm about their play quickly.
Rivers pointed to fatigue as a potential factor in the team’s play following Saturday’s loss at San Antonio.
