In matter of three days the Celtics went from having solved all of what ailed them through the first half of the season to right back up that proverbial creek without a paddle. What looked so promising against the league's #1 defense in the form of the Indiana Pacers reverted to sloppy play and poor decision making against the Heat and Magic. Jon and Justin looked at the obvious clash of the old guard players led by Kyrie Irving and the new guard players targeted by Irving like Rozier and Jaylen Brown. The leadership of the squad came into question in the show's second half as Brad Stevens faces the most critical juncture of his NBA coaching career while Kyrie attempts to accept the mantle as team leader just 18 months after asking to leave the overbearing leadership of Lebron James. Last up, the role (or lack there of) Terry Rozier has played in the Celtics' continued struggles came into focus. How much value does Rozier still possess? And for those looking to stick around after closing time... Jon and Justin preview a very interesting week ahead with Toronto coming to town on Wednesday.
