Ugh. How many ways can I say the Celtics are playing like crap?
Here's the definition of inconsistency: The Celtics scored 33 points in the 1st quarter, 16 in the 2nd quarter, 36 in the 3rd quarter and 15 in the 4th quarter.
KG had 6 points, 6 rebounds in 24 foul-plagued minutes. Ray Allen had 11 points. The Celtics won't win many games with these two guys taking a total of 12 shots.
Aside from Glen Davis (20 points, 5 rebounds), the bench was non-existent. Delonte West and Jeff Green were a combined -30.
The Celtics choked in the final 5 minutes. They had three turnovers and three missed free throws.
On the bright side… Rajon Rondo played a helluva first half (18 of his 22 points). He was super-aggressive. But it needs to be noted that Darren Collison got the best of him down the stretch.
