I've been watching the Celtics for some 30 years and tonight may have been one of the worst performances I've witnessed.
The Sixers played mediocre basketball and beat the Celtics, 82-75.
The Celtics were… abominable, alarming, appalling, atrocious, deplorable, depressing, dire, disgusting, distressing, dreadful, fearful, frightful, ghastly, grody, gross, gruesome, grungy, harrowing, hideous, horrendous, horrible, horrific, horrifying, nasty, offensive, raunchy, repulsive, shocking, stinking, synthetic, tough, ugly, unpleasant, and unsightly.
Check the box score for the hideous stats. My personal favorite is the 42-16 differential in the paint.
What the hell was wrong with Rajon Rondo (9 points, 4-14 FG, 9 rebounds, 6 assists)? He played like he had a 104 degree fever. He was torched by Jrue Holiday (20 points).
Ray Allen (9 points, 4-11 FG) is killing this team. His ankle has rendered him useless on defense. I was begging Doc Rivers to play Sasha or Marquis.
Want some more bad news? The Herald's Steve Bulpett says Avery Bradley is doubtful for the remainder of the playoffs and may have shoulder surgery soon.
