I can’t blame that chick for letting loose the power yawn because recap duty was the only thing keeping me awake.
How bad was this game? The Celtics wretched 37% shooting was a hair better than Charlotte (36%).
The C’s never found a rhythm on offense. Charlotte’s physical play didn’t help. Al Jefferson had 22 points, including a gigantic offensive rebound and lay-up that sealed the game with 17 seconds remaining. The Celtics missed Jared Sullinger who sat out with a sore knee.
The Bobcats won it, 89-83, ending the 4 game winning streak.
Jeff Green had 19 points on 7-13 FG. But in games like this one, the Celtics need more shots from Green. He needs to be selfish.
Courtney Lee and Gerald Wallace combined for 20 points off the bench.
Jordan Crawford had some wild moments but he filled up the stat sheet: 16 points, 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals.
Tommy Heinsohn with the quote of the night following a silly foul by Bismack Biyombo: “El Dumbo by Biyombo.”
So much to chose from…
The Celtics had 5 TOs in the 4th quarter. They committed 26 fouls.
Jeff Green with the baseline drive and dunk
Brandon Bass with the upfake and dunk
- Even with Jared Sullinger out, Kris Humphries logged just 10 minutes
- Kemba Walker was 1-13. Overrated.
