Signing Jeff Teague was a mistake

Article Summary:

“He got us several baskets that were just easy. Pushing the ball up the floor, it doesn’t look like he’s breaking a sweat; sometimes it was him, sometimes it was others. But really, in the first 30 minutes, I felt like that was the only time the ball was moving the way it needs to was when he was in the game, and we need to improve when he’s not.”

Jeff Teague had just put the 76ers to the sword with an exceptional showing of speed and skill, notching 18 points in 19 minutes while acting as the Celtics offense’s metronome when on the floor.

Despite that game being Teague’s first in Boston and his first under Brad Stevens, this wasn’t the first time the Celtics head coach had lauded the veteran entering his 12th season.

For reference, when Stevens was singing Teague’s praises, he was coming off the back of the Atlanta Hawks’ 60-win season. Teague looked poised in possession, engaged on defense, and generally controlled the game’s flow – we have seen nothing like that from him since that night.
