Pardon the super quick recap tonight, but aside from the third quarter, there wasn't a whole lot to talk about. The Celtics came out of the box frigid, missing some makeable shots but also looking old and slow.
They found the fountain of youth in the third quarter, hitting on 11 of 19 shots and outscoring the Bulls by 11. Mickael Pietrus' 3 with about 10 minutes cut was was a 20 point deficit down to 1… but the C's never got any closer.
Rajon Rondo had 14 pts, 11 ast, 7 reb. Ray Allen had 16 pts. There's no one else really worth mentioning.
Why do the C's look like such crap, even early in games? I shared my thoughts on Facebook… basically saying I think the end of the lockout caught a couple of these guys off guard.
C's lose it 88-79, alternately looking finished, looking good, and looking "eh". More on the game tomorrow.
