Not too many good things from last nights game,but the defense was sound in the first half,and in the first quarter holding the Pacers to 18% shooting. The Celtics gave up 30 points in the third,and they scored 30 points in the third so that didn't help their cause last night. Ray Allen again was the only Celtic to talk about. The man is uncanny.
Paul Pierce shooting 3/17 for the game. I will say more than half of his shots looked like they we go down. He didn't force anything,but at a certain point the offense should have been taken over by Rondo,and it was for a brief time. I think will see a bounce back from Pierce.
I'm sick,and tired of the rebounding effort. We have four able bodies to rebound the basketball. We have one of the best rebounding forwards of all-time in KG,but I know he has lost a step,but he can rebound the ball. It's not like the Celtics have an undersized Glen Davis anymore. The problem could be effort,but I think it's a team thing. The Celtics always get smacked down on the boards,and it's always the first thing I look at because of the Lakers series in 2010. We lost a damn championship because of poor rebounding. Rebounding should be the top ticket during the four day's off. The offense is okay,but the one thing on offense is real simple. Let Rondo have total control. Doc seems unwilling to do that.
