Brad Stevens and the Boston Celtics are still struggling and are trying to find a way to solve their problems.

Stevens noted one major issue the Celtics are dealing with is how they close out games.

“We got a lot of things to clean up, obviously. Finishing the game is number one,” Stevens said, via A. Sherrod Blakely of Bleacher Report.

The Celtics blew a 24-point lead and lost to the New Orleans Pelicans in overtime (115-120). The Pelicans outscored Boston 46-28 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

The Celtics have won just five of their last 12 matches and are fifth in the East, at 15-15.
