The Boston Celtics’ lack of consistency remains a concern as the team concludes a four-game homestand Friday against the Portland Trail Blazers.
“We’ve got to find some consistency from night to night,” guard Jaylen Brown said. “It can’t be one night you play well and then the next two nights you chill. Everybody’s got to come every single night ready to play. Be prepared, be consistent, be professional.”
Brown is averaging 24.1 points for the Celtics, who are hoping to have forwards Marcus Smart and Robert Williams back in the lineup against Portland.
Smart has missed the last five games with a thigh injury and then a stint in the health and safety protocol, while Williams missed the last two games due to the birth of his son.
