How The Celtics Can Counteract The Heat Switching Pick-And-Rolls

As Jeff Van Gundy noted on ESPN's broadcast, the Miami Heat have begun switching more pick-and-rolls, especially with Rajon Rondo. The effect: It has coerced the Boston Celtics into an isolation game offensively.

The thing is, the Celtics have a lot of counters to this. Considering how much continuity exists in their offense -- i.e., their plays fold well into each other -- it shouldn’t be too hard for the Celtics to run pindowns or misdirections to render all that Miami switching irrelevant.
