But then they lost in Detroit to the Pistons on Saturday and at home Wednesday to the lowly Phoenix Suns before falling behind by as many as 26 points to the Bucks on Friday night. The Boston Celtics aren't quite to "players-only meeting", but they did close their locker room for 36 minutes on Friday night for an airing of grievances that Kyrie Irving called "much needed".

Baynes is averaging 5.5 points and 4.4 rebounds in almost 15 minutes per game so far this season for the Celtics.

The Celtics locker room took longer than usual to open to the media afterward, which was the result of the team holding an impromptu meeting to chat about its current issues.

Unlike the first time the two teams met, when the Celtics won in overtime after being behind by as many as 22 points, there was no comeback on this occasion. "(We're) trying to do something special, trying to make sure we're all clicking on the same cylinders".

"I think anytime - even looking behind at the schedule we just played and now having a few days off, as you're preparing to get on the practice court and walkthroughs and those type of things - you're thinking about what you just finished and what's coming", Stevens said.

Boston's locker room remained closed for almost 40 minutes after the game ended.

A trio of injuries certainly have hurt them - Aron Baynes broke his hand, Al Horford continues to nurse patellofemoral pain syndrome, and Marcus Morris is battling right knee soreness - but inconsistent play and lack of effort seemingly have done more damage. So that's an everyday thing.

"I know everybody would like to think, 'Hey, what's going on?' but it's just not easy", point guard Kyrie Irving said. It's an everyday job.

"We've got to play to a certain level and we haven't been playing to that level, so we got to talk". I've been saying it since the beginning of the season. It starts with our habits, it starts with our preparation, how we go about treating each other and going out there and putting on a great performance every single night regardless if whether the ball is going in the rim or not, just trusting one another.

The Brooklyn Nets saw their seven-game winning streak end as their second-half rally came up short in a 114-106 loss to the Indiana Pacers. "Feeling better, getting better".
