“All right, we’re going to trade them all now,” Rivers joked in his opening comment after the game.
Whatever moves the Celtics make, whatever direction the franchise shifts in, the current group is eating away at the cushion of wins it built before the All-Star Break.
“We’re not perfect by any means,” Garnett said. “We’re a working group, man. We’ve just got to get back on the horse, so to speak.
“The break kind of nipped the momentum a little bit, but that’s something that you’ve got to be conscious of, something that we are conscious of, and something that if we want to work our way out of, it’s got to be as a group. It’s not going to be one or two individuals.
“We’ve got to get back to our consistency and defense and let the offense flow through many versus one or two.
“We will. We will.”
