Perkins: We lacked intensity

Following this afternoon’s loss to the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of a first-round playoff series, Celtics center Kendrick Perkins said his team did not bring the intensity necessary for a playoff game.

“Playing against a young team, the most important thing is that you’ve got to bring a lot of energy,” said Perkins. “We’re not just going to show up and beat teams.”
