The line for the eye wash begins to the left. You'll need it to wash the crappiest game you'll watch all year off your retinas. That, folks, was about 48 minutes of pure crap. The good news is, the Celtics came out on top of this pile of dung 86-76… making them the only winners in this mess.
KG and Ray combined to shoot 8-26. Sheed was 3-10… including 0-4 from 3. The entire offense looked disjointed and slow all night. Lucky for them, they were playing an already bad New Jersey team that was made worse by a million injuries and a player with swine flu. A full Nets squad might have blown the C's out tonight.
Alright, let's get to some positives:
- The Celtics had 20 steals. 20. Part of it was some good defense, part of it was New Jersey's putrid offense.
- Paul Pierce scored 16 points on 8 shots. Why he only took 8 shots is beyond me. He also had 7 assists.
- Rajon Rondo shot 8 of 11, and finished with 16 points, 3 assists and 5 steals with 1 turnover.
- The Celtics won… and any win is a good win.
And here's the last positive: The Celtics are off until Wednesday. Hallelujah! This 4 games in 5 nights crap is too much for this team… especially when a guy like Marquis Daniels isn't around.
Here's the box score. Click it if you dare. My advice? Go have a couple of drinks, forget this night ever happened, and we'll just talk about something else in the morning. Ok?
