For the second time this week, the Celtics have played like a giant pile of crap against one of the league's worst teams… and won.
While the stink bomb they laid on Monday in Washington was bad, tonight's performance at home against the 4-win Nets is a new low.
This New Jersey team might go down as one of the worst teams in league history, yet they led by four at the half, one after 3 quarters, and trailed by four points with 3 minutes in the game.
Why can't this team just focus, play hard and blow out bad teams? Their lackadaisical play is driving me f-ing crazy!!!!!!
Give credit to Eddie House. Without his 10 fourth quarter points, the Celtics do not win this game. Ray Allen had 26 points on 9-17 FG. Rajon Rondo had 17 points, 11 assists and 3 steals.
Anyone else annoyed with the referees spending 5 minutes to review Eddie's three point shot vs the shot clock in the 4th? The replay provided by Comcast was inconclusive. I don't see how they could take those points off the board. As Tommy pointed out, the delay also killed the Celtics momentum.
