They're still gelling and their new pieces are still settling into their new roles. I do think they'll be fine in the long run, but they aren't just being conservative. They have genuine kinks that will hopefully and likely iron themselves out as time goes by.
Celtics let the Pistons win tho. They felt sorry for the lickins them dudes was taking this season.
