The Celtics Talk podcast from NBC Sports Boston is hosted by Insiders A. Sherrod Blakely, Chris Forsberg, and Pre/Postgame host Kyle Draper. Guests include players, coaches, management and media members from around the NBA.
1:05 - The Celtics are 11-2 when Kyrie Irving isn’t on the floor. What gives? A. Sherrod Blakely, Kyle Draper and Chris Forsberg discuss why that might be and attempt to answer the question once and for all. Are the Celtics better without him?
7:28 - As the playoffs draw closer, what makes us think this team can flip the switch? Can they rely on talent alone to take them deep into the playoffs?
13:58 - The Celtics are still battling for home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs, but it might not matter based on their inconsistent play. “Home court is irrelevant with this particular team because they just need to figure out how to play," Sherrod says.
16:23 - How will Brad Stevens best, as the guys say, “deploy his talent” in the playoffs and who will step up on the defensive end of the floor?
21:47 - Terry Rozier joins Chris Forsberg to talk about his Puma sponsor, the team’s Top Golf outing, and he answers a handful of questions from Twitter.
28:11 - The guys close out by previewing the Celtics upcoming big games vs. the Pacers.
