Did the Celtics just drop one against the Clippers? Its true, the Celtics lost to the Clippers 93-91. The worst thing is I stayed up past 1 am for another west coast loss. Celtics struggled at the line shooting 22-32, and coughed up 20 turnovers. They were flat and showed the typical “tired” signs of a team at the end of a long road trip. Rajon Rondo continues to struggle at the line where he shot 50% (4-8) and finishing the night with only 3 assists. Pierce played through the dislocated thumb suffered in this game, and led the team in scoring with 20 points. Rondo and Allen followed with 17 points each. Zach Randolph put up big numbers leading all scorers with 30 points and grabbing 12 boards. Marcus Camby also posted a double-double with 14 and 11. Mikki Moore performed as expected, playing 11 minutes with 4 points off the bench. The C’s ended the 6 game road trip with a 4-2 record and were plagued with injuries during the west coast trip. As previously mentioned, Paul Pierce left this game briefly with a dislocated right thumb. Pierce did return and as the story goes, he will be re-evaluated in Boston.
