The Boston Celtics blew a huge lead on Thursday night en route to a 108-105 loss to the New York Knicks.
Knicks’ guard RJ Barrett sealed the deal with a three-point buzzer beater.
“We need some leadership,” Celtics’ head coach Ime Udoka – who many believe should be the voice of that missing leadership – conspicuously said after the game, via NBC Sports Boston.
“Somebody that can calm us down and not get rattled when everything starts to go a little south.”
Evan Fournier had another monster game against Boston with 41 points and eight rebounds on 15-25 shooting from the field and 10-14 shooting from three.
“I look back to those years when we were going to the Conference Finals – and it makes you really appreciate those moments, because it’s hard,” Celtics’ star Jayson Tatum said after the game, via Jared Weiss.
To say the Celtics are soul-searching would be an understatement.
