Did any of you stick around for this one? If you did you know it was torture. This game was basically over in the first few minutes. The Rockets went on a 18-1 run, and it took the Celtics 5 plus minutes before Bradley hit the Celtics first field goal. The Rockets went on a 12-0 run to finish the first,and they scored 40 points in the quarter. The Rockets also scored 15 fast break points, and they shot shot 80% from the field.


The Celtics cut the lead to 12 in the first quarter after the Rockets started on a 18-1 run, but after that the Celtics were not even close. The Celtics lost 109-85. Courtney Lee was the leading scorer with 17 points off the bench. So what about Green? He followed up his worst game of the year, and perhaps of his career with another crap fest. Green had 4 points in 22 minutes. Stevens pulled the plug on most of the starters.


The Celtics allowed 56% shooting, and they gave up 60 points in the paint. The Celtics will play tomorrow night against the Spurs.

This was just a bad game we were down 40-18 at the end of the first. Jeff Green didn't score his first field goal until the 3rd qtr. I will say though that bradley and sullinger played extremely hard all of the minutes they were in not that everyone else didn't but I really noticed sullinger battling with howard and bradley trying to and sometimes stopping james harden. The only good thing tonight was that we beat houston in 2nd chance points.
