I had a feeling this face punch compilation from Road House would fit the game recap. The Mavericks beat up the Celtics tonight, 89-73.
The script was the same… there's no need to rehash the lack of rebounding and second chance points. Not having anyone who could guard Dirk Nowitzki (26 points, 16 rebounds) certainly didn't help.
The Celtics lost two more bigs: Jermaine O'Neal (sprained wrist) and Chris Wilcox (strained groin). Is Mark Blount still available? His rebounding ability would fit perfectly with this team.
The lone bright spot? Paul Pierce (20 points, 4 steals) showed a pulse. Ignore the -27.
I hope no one took my prediction for a Celtics victory seriously.
