BOSTON (CBS) – He has been an integral part of the Boston Celtics bench the past three seasons, but now “Big Baby” Glen Davis has gone missing.
“I’ve got to find Glen. I don’t know where Glen at,” Davis said after the Celtics 98-90 Game 4 overtime loss to the Miami Heat. “I have no idea who is playing right now.”
Frustrated Big Baby Has “To Find Glen”
Davis has found himself in a playoff slump, averaging just 4.8 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. He scored just four points and had no rebounds in Game 4 after being held scoreless in 11 minutes in Game 3.
“I’ve been nowhere to be found this whole playoffs,” he said. “I need to find myself.”
Davis has not looked himself on the floor, often ineffective on defense and hoisting up bad shots on offense. This comes at a time when Big Baby has risen to the occasion in years past.
“I don’t know where I’m at,” the frustrated Davis continued. “This is what I do, this is what I’ve been doing all my years playing with the Celtics (in the playoffs). This is when I play best. It’s just not showing right now.”
The four-year forward is not sure how to break out of the slump but knows where it all starts.
“Preparation,” said Davis. “Working on my craft and getting back into believing in my game. You get a couple of games when you’re not playing well, you have to keep going and still believe you can do what you do. You just have to go out there and find it.”
He also knows he is running out of time, but is just focusing on Wednesday’s Game 5 in Miami.
“One game at a time, that’s all you can do is look at it like that,” said Davis. “We have to fight until the end, so keep going.”
