Recap: Listless 3rd quarter dooms ice cold Celtics


Despite shooting under 30% for the 1st half, the Celtics found themselves down a mere six points to the Mavericks at halftime. But the C’s returned from the locker room with very little defensive energy and the Mavs blew the game open.

102-91 is the final and the 3 game winning streak is history.

The Green

Rajon Rondo (15 points, 8 rebounds, 12 assists) nearly recorded a triple-double. He surpassed 4,000 career assists and is now 6th on the Celtics all-time list. Brad Stevens announced that Rondo will sit out Monday’s game vs Milwaukee.

Chris Johnson (14 points, 4-4 3 FG in 15 minutes) continues to impress with his hustle and shooting.

The Gross

Avery Bradley (2-13), Jared Sullinger (4-13) and Green (6-15) shot a combined 12 – 41.

    Please fix the mobile site. It’s so broken for me.

    • What do you mean broken? What’s it doing?

        I am also having issues. If I don’t keep scrolling down the article it jumps right to the comments and I cant get back to the article itself. So I have to jump back to the blog section and open the article again.

        It also keeps dropping down the browser bar and trying to load content…it drops down all the time…I don’t know if its trying to load advertisements all the time or what; however it isnt something that messes up my use of the site, I dont think…its just annoying.

          It’s pretty obvious that John and Chuck are still carrying around their Motorola StarTAC phones.

        On my phone, the same thing that @ne_celt:disqus is describing is happening on amazon dot com. It may be more of a browswer issue than your website. Hopefully your site admin can resolve it, but have him/her check amazon for a similar thing.

        • NE_Celt

          I will have to try and see if that works. Thanks for the info Curt.

        I can’t view it in landscape mode. Every time I go on the site it gives me scrolling directions that don’t go away.

        Also, clicking the comments button sometimes freezes my browser.

    Rondo and Sully are gonna be quite the duo heading down the stretch this year. They’ve had good chemistry so far.
