I'm not sure I've ever felt worse after a Celtics win.
The effort and execution for most of the game was embarrassing. The T-Wolves walked into Boston with a 2-18 road record and nearly beat the Celtics. Had Luke Ridnour not shat his shorts and traveled with 9 seconds left… who knows what would have happened. Yes – Ray Allen made a spectacular block but the ball went out of bounds.
I get it… Kevin Love is a fantastic rebounder. His 24 boards are a Shawmut/Fleet/TD Garden building record. But to get outrebounded 45-30? Luke Harangody is the only guy who attempted a god damn box out.
Credit to Rajon Rondo (6 points, 16 assists) for his clutch baskets in the final minutes.
Great job by Von Wafer (10 points, 6 rebounds). He's the only Celtic who shouldn't feel ashamed
If the Celtics put forth this type of effort on Wednesday night, San Antonio will kick their ass by 25 points.
