Any rhyme or reason why the Celtics turn the ball over so much?

    cause they pass so much. when you pass as much as they do, you are bound to turn it over. if you noticed in the first half of the laker game; their offense was struggling to find its flow.

    And their leading passer, Rondo, is a gambler on the basketball court.

    Pierce is correct. The Celtics are 14th in turnovers committed (13.8) but tied for first in assist/turnover ratio (1.8).

    A unselfish team that shares the ball along with a PG would takes risks leads to turnovers.

    they seem to play the strategy just right to win alot.  pass the ball to get the best shot every time, 8 out of 10 times you get a higher percentage shot and end up scoring more points than if you just took the first look every time and shot a lower percentage.  this excludes when Nate is on the floor ... lol

    Next question is why they pass so much? The big three can shoot. Paul and Ray can shoot threes and KG can shoot long twos. However Rando and Shaq/Perk can not shoot. That is why they have to make extra passes to find open man outside or in the paint. The Fakers have a better offensive roatation with almost everyone shooting jumpers and threes. Cs have to win games based on tough defense and good offense. They have lost quite a few games thise season due to bad offense. Good defense is not enough to win games. They need to play better offense. Game 7 of last finals is 79-83. They would have had banner 18 already if they had scored 84.

    Do you really think they overpass? I think sharing the ball like they do makes them the best team in the Association. Please explain how they lost "quite a few games" with their current record.

    Doc says he wants them to pass up good shots to get great shots. They`re 36-11 and shooting over 50%. What are you complaining about?Would you prefer that one guy take all the shots like the fakers?
