If the Celtics are going to finish the regular season with efforts like this one, Doc might as well sit the starters. And please let us fans know, so we don't subject ourselves to this garbage.
The execution in the final 36 seconds of this game was awful.
Trailing by 1 (102-101 after Danilo Gallinari banked home a deep, straightaway jumper), Paul Pierce drove to the hoop and threw a pin-point pass to Chris Duhon.
The Knicks regained possession with 28 seconds. Inexplicably, the Celtics did not foul. New York did the Celtics a favor and scored with 7.3 seconds left.
The Cs called timeout and on their final possession… they didn't even get off a shot.
Earl Barron, a guy who spent nearly all year playing for Iowa in the NBDL, torched the Celtics for 17 points, 18 rebounds in 44 minutes.
For those following the soap opera titled "The Rotation," Doc played Nate Robinson 14 mintes (5 points, 2-4 FG) and Marquis Daniels collected another DNP.
