Entering Wednesday’s game against the Clippers, a meeting rather easily won by the Celtics, the walls were most definitely caving in on the East’s alleged best team. To put the disaster in perspective, the Celtics were on a four-game losing skid (their first since March 2016), Kyrie Irving was...

At some point between now and March 10, the Celtics are going to spend $8.4 million on a player with an expiring contract to bolster their lineup. That player could help put them in the Finals.
