The Celtics have just six losses this season, but critics have been quick to point out the team's shortcomings over the last two weeks.
"We have six losses," Paul Pierce said. "I mean, the world's not coming to an end."
Boston has lost four of their last six games after beginning the season with a 27-2 record. The team met prior to their matchup with Charlotte on Tuesday night to discuss their struggles.
"We talked about it as a group afterwards, and I think we're all in the right place," Ray Allen said. "It's just small little things we've got to do when we're out there and just be good together as a unit. Simple as that.
"But there's a competitive spirit in this locker room that is disappointed, very frustrated in losing this game (to New York). We all agree that the Knicks played a great game. They beat us. But there were things we knew we could have done better."
