Can Celtics fix defensive game plan to compete with Nets in Game 3?

The Celtics have one final weekend to get the most out of what they have left. Who knows if it will happen, but at this point, Brad Stevens needs to throw everything at the wall and see if any of it sticks.

He surprised everyone by tucking Jabari Parker away for a few weeks and then bringing him back in a vital rotation role in Brooklyn, though he abandoned that soon after the first quarter Tuesday. He’s constantly switched up defensive matchups on the Nets’ top players. None of it has worked.

So what do Stevens and the Celtics’ defense need to fix for Game 3?
