The Celtics put forth a valiant effort tonight in Denver, but ended up losing 97-90. They simply didn’t make enough plays down the stretch. The C’s managed a measly 6 points over the final 5+ minutes of this game. The officiating was
horribly one-sided questionable, but it was the Celtics lack of offensive continuity that deserves blame.
The Green: Jeff Green had 20 points on 8-12 FG and a couple of fantastic blocked shots. Avery Bradley and Courtney Lee combined for 33 points on 13-25 shooting.
The Gross: Paul Pierce looked a tad rusty. Okay… he was awful. 2-14 from the field. He had some hideous turnovers and looked two steps behind on every play. Jason Terry managed just two buckets in 27 minutes.
Greenlights: Courtney Lee’s jumper beats the halftime buzzer
