Another horrible loss to a crappy team. For those who are counting, that’s 4 losses in the last 6 games.
The Celtics shot a hideous 6-25 from 3 FG. Ray Allen was 0-9 from three. Kevin Garnett had 6 pts on 1-6 FG. Looks like he suffered some type of calf injury in the second half.
Paul Pierce (31 pts) tried to carry this team in the 4th quarter, but the Celtics defense disappeared. They got sloppy, giving up layups and offensive rebounds.
Wilson Chandler (31 pts, and Al Harrington (30 pts) torched the Celtics defense. I can’t remember the last time two guys burned the C’s like this.
I understand Doc was desperately trying to find 5 guys who could play, but letting Brian Scalabrine play most of the 4th quarter while the team was trying to make a run is just plain dumb. What am I missing with this guy? He’s AWFUL. Wow….Heinsohn just gave the Tommy Award to Scal. My head is going to explode.
I have one non-Celtics related issue – Comcast’s incessant promotion for the “Manny being Manny” special. For anyone who hasn’t watched it, don’t bother. It’s all rehash and does not live up to the billing.
After the jump….dancers.
