I'd been clinging to the 'flip the switch' and 'get the new guys acclimated' theories for the past six weeks… but after watching today's pile of crap… I'm starting to have my doubts about this team.
In what many of us believed was a must-win game, the Celtics played their best for about 8 minutes. After that… we got D-league level junk.
The Heat won all the key battles I highlighted in my preview.
Rondo was an epic fail.
Wade was a monster on defense.
The Celtics reserves were awful.
And the real slap in the face was the Heat's dominance on the boards.
