I didn't watch enough of this game to offer legitimate analysis, but I will give the Celtics a boat load of credit for cutting a 27-point deficit (83-56 with 6:35 remaining in 3rd quarter) to 6 points late in the 4th quarter.
The Celtics had two sloppy turnovers (Pietrus bad pass and KG's drop) that squelched the comeback. OKC ran away with it 119-104.
Avery Bradley (12 points, 5 assists, 3 blocks) played some ferocious defense on Russell Westbrook (31 points, 11-24 FG) in this game. Check out the video clip for one of his 3 blocked shots.
Strong night for Kevin Garnett – 23 points, 8-11 FG, and 13 rebounds.
The Celtics were too thin to win this game. Look at the bench production in the box score.
