Stevens to reporters: "Listen, I don't think we played hard enough." Singled out pick and roll defense.

Brad Stevens has had many ups, and downs during the course of his rookie season. The Celtics started off 0-4, then rallied nicely with 4 wins to pull even on the season. The Celtics would then lose 6 in a row improving to 4-10. The Celtics found something soon after the 4-10 start, maybe it was home cooking, or an easy schedule. The Celtics would go 8-4 in their next 12 games to improve to 12-14. The Celtics since then have gone 1-8.
After the Celtics 129-98 loss in Denver. Brad Stevens didn't speak about this game in a moral victory kind of way.
The stats don't make sense, the Celtics forced Denver into 21 turnovers, and the Celtics got 8 more shots then Denver because of it. Oh, wait, the Celtics lost this game because Denver nailed 14 three-pointers. Sorry for the sarcasm, but it was a rough loss.
