Eddie House: "We're just not the same team defensively that we were last year"
Eddie House called out the Celtics defense Friday night following the team's overtime loss to the Cavs. And House is right that you can't just sit back and wait for Robert Williams to return.
For one thing, his return is not imminent. Secondly, it's not like Williams rarely gets hurt, so there is no guarantee that when he does return, he will play all the remaining games of the season. And lastly, defense is more than just one player. The Celtics still played great defense last season when Williams was out. Yes Time Lord makese the Celtics defense elite, but they should still be much better now.
