I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers
are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose
of 'enemy chatter' from Washington.
The Wizards didn't have much to say about the Celtics or Rajon Rondo's sizzling performance. Most of their focus was on…. Gilbert Arenas' missed free throws.
second time in as many home games, he came up short when his team
needed him most. He missed two free throws that could've tied the game
with 26.7 seconds remaining against the Celtics, after missing a point-blank layup that could've tied the game late against Toronto.
However despite drawing the foul, Arenas couldn't convert on his
free-throws. Gil missed both, completely squandering the opportunity he
had created for his team. But hasn't that been the story of the season
for the Wizards so far this year? Their man, who used to be the man,
can seemingly do everything but finish. He gets open, he makes the
plays, but seemingly never when they count the most.
