Celtics Davis wants to find himself. Not in a spiritual way.

Last season, Glen Davis was a playoffs star for the Celtics. He was Shrek. He averaged 7.3 points per payoff game on 47.6 percent shooting, this season it has fallen to 4.8 on 39 percent. Rebounds are down, too. His PER has dropped from 14.5 (solid bench player level) to 4.6 (hope to hang on in the D-League level).

Davis owned up to it after the Celtics loss, as he told CSN New England.

“I’ve been nowhere to be found this whole playoffs,” he said. “I need to find myself.”

Davis was left searching for words following the Celtics’ Game 4 overtime loss to the Miami Heat on Monday night at TD Garden. Rather than providing his team with a necessary spark off the bench, the Celtics sixth man shot just 1-for-4 in nearly 17 minutes.

“I’m frustrated,” he said. “Really frustrated.”

So are all the Celtics. And their fans.

Davis has in part been neutralized by the Heat’s small lineups, and is struggling for answers, looking at himself first. So are all the Celtics. But the time to find those answers is fleeting.

    the celtics in general are looking slow and old…long runs into the playoffs the last couple years really has taken its toll on KG and Ray – and when there is any kinda emphasis on a guy like Baby Davis not showing up…you know its a team problem
