Root canal. Kick to the groin. A Tracy Chapman concert. All were better options than watching the Celtics 95-94 OT loss in Washington.
The loss and the Heat's victory over Atlanta means the 3rd seeded Celtics will square off with the 7th seeded Knicks in the 1st round of the playoffs.
The injury bug is still biting. Delonte West reinjured his right ankle in the 3rd quarter.
On the bright side…
Jeff Green had 20 points and 15 rebounds in 47 minutes. Jermaine O'Neal had 15 points, 13 rebounds, 5 blocks and 2 charges.
Glen Davis (20 points, 4 assists) had a spectacular block on Javale McGee (see video).
Both teams combined for 56 fouls and 35 turnovers.
