Celtics Hovering Around .500 Despite Once Again Being One of NBA's Best Defensive Teams
The Celtics opened a six-game road trip on Thursday in Chicago, and it didn't go well. The C's dropped an 89-80 decision to the Bulls, falling to 15-14 on the season.

Despite hovering around .500, the Celtics have continued to play the stingy defense that has become one of the hallmarks of this Big Three era. No team has allowed fewer points per game this season than Boston.

However, only four teams are scoring fewer points per game than the C's. Add it all up, and you've got a recipe for mediocrity.
