Ime Udoka: Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Dennis Schroder need to learn to play together

It has been a rather start of the season for the Boston Celtics. After 20 games, they are 10-10 and find themselves in the 10th place in the Eastern Conference.

Most recently, the Celtics were defeated by the Spurs, a team that currently holds a 5-13 record and is third from the bottom in the West. According to Boston head coach Ime Udoka, the key issue that his team needs to resolve is for star players to stop trying to go isolation and start playing together instead.

Udoka specifically named Marcus Smart, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, and Dennis Schroder as players that need to change how they play.

“We can’t dig ourselves that hole, come out flat for no reason,” he said via Alexandra Francisco. “It’s habits and we need to break – not trying to go isolation with all those, you know we got Marcus, Jaylen, Jayson, and Dennis starting. They need to learn to play together. Not try to just get baskets for themselves. And so that’s what really hurt us in the first quarter and we got back to who we are and in the last three quarters.”
