Stat Talk: Are the Celtics peaking at the right time?

An unfortunate storyline has surrounded this season’s Celtics, defined by uncertain leadership and frustratingly inconsistent play. It was a year of stark highs and lows: a heroic 33-point drubbing of the defending-champion Warriors was followed six days later by an embarrassing 25-point rout at the hands of the Clippers.

Anti-Bostonian: The Celtics’ Game 1 win is a mirage
