Quantcast

Here are some of the most glaring statistics from the Celtics last eight games in which they have won only once:

Offensive rebounds minus 12 excluding the Pelicans loss on Friday.

Why did I exclude the Pelicans loss?

The Celtics out rebounded the Pelicans on the offensive glass 22-12 in this game.

Unfortunately, Boston also shot 34.8% from the floor including 7-29 from three point range so there were a lot of offensive rebounds to be had.

Jared Sullinger had an impressive nine offensive boards this game. The only problem is most of them came off his own misses considering he and Jordan Crawford were a combined 5-31 shooting-16%.

Turnovers plus 21. The Celtics did have four less turnovers than New Orleans. Then again, as was mentioned above, the majority of their shots in this game became turnovers anyhow.

Jeff Green's numbers for the past eight games. 13.6 points on 40 percent 41 of 102 from the field.

It's not all gloom and doom, however. There have been some positives during the past eight games:

Avery Bradley's hot shooting from behind the arc has continued as he is 12-24 during this time.

Kris Humphries has averaged just under 6.5 rebounds in just over 21 minutes a game. This is excellent news for the Celtic organization because he is in a contract year so they may be able to move him before the trade deadline.

There have been some other positives but overall it's pretty dire or they wouldn't have lost 7 of 8 obviously.

Having said that, it looks like lottery and Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid here we come.
