The Celtics are in one of their worst stretches of the season. The team looks out of sync on the floor and players have even gotten into spats with each other on the court.
Jaylen Brown, especially, isn’t happy with how things are going right now in Boston.
“To be honest, I’m not feeling good at all,” Brown said via The Boston Globe. “The losing, it’s not a good feeling. I’m not too good about that.
“Because right now it’s not good. It’s toxic. I can’t really point out one thing. I don’t have all the answers. I’m just going to try to be part of the change. I’m going to try to do my best. That’s all I’ve got to say.”
Boston has lost five of its last six including a 10-point defeat at the hands of the 18-win Bulls.
Kyrie Irving has been vocal in saying the team will be OK, but the locker room has had moments of contention internally and with the media.
For a team that was one win away from the NBA Finals last year, the Celtics aren’t where they thought they would be, but Brown and his teammates say they are doing what they can to fix it.
“Everybody has to be on page,” he said. “If one person’s not on page, it’s going to affect the whole group. I just try to come out and play hard and see where that leaves me.”
The Celtics (38-26) are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference. They play at Golden State at 10:30 p.m. ET Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila).
