Right now there are many fans worried about what’s next for the Boston Celtics.
It’s not often to see the team lose, especially several games in a row, but that’s what’s been happening lately.
The team has now fallen three times in a row, including another overtime defeat to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.
Some people are panicking but Celtics writer Cameron Tabatabaie is telling them to be calm.
On Twitter, he noted that the Celtics have been beaten three times in a row twice before this season and have gone on to 13-2 and 10-5 records after those stretches.
He also noted the Golden State Warriors ended last season on an 11-13 run while the Celtics were 4-3 at the conclusion of the season.
Last year the Warriors ended the season on an 11-13 stretch. Boston closed up shop going 4-3.
Taking your lumps in March, even in immensely dramatic fashion, isn't a death sentence for an NBA team.

As he puts it, “taking your lumps in March, even in immensely dramatic fashion, isn’t a death sentence for an NBA team.”
This is a good perspective that fans of the team will definitely hold close in the weeks ahead.
There are some who are worried that the Celtics are running out of gas and that their postseason success is no longer guaranteed.
But Tabatabie is right: the team can still do great things despite the current spell of bad games they are getting through.
Even though they have now lost three in a row, the Celtics are still in a good spot as the postseason sneaks up.
They are just two games behind the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.
The team will soon face off against the Portland Trail Blazers, Atlanta Hawks, and Houston Rockets.
