Celtics Hold Team Meeting After Loss
BOSTON — The Boston Celtics kept the locker room closed for 36 minutes following Friday night’s 120-107 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks at TD Garden, holding a team meeting to clear the air after losing a third straight game.
“Much needed,” Celtics guard Kyrie Irving said of the discussion. “Much needed.
“I think everyone can see that we’ve obviously had some inconsistencies regarding our play, so I think it was just time to address it.”
The most pointed criticisms of the team’s recent play — and the reasoning behind the meeting — came from Irving, who repeatedly cited a lack of “cohesion” and said that there has been “some selfish play” among his teammates.
