This was over in the first quarter, the Celtics couldn't score, and nobody wanted to shoot the ball at times, which made for bad shot attempts. Rajon Rondo was 3-of-13, and a lot of that has to do with his timing, he'll get it, he was the most aggressive. Rondo finished with 7 points and 5 assists. The Celtics lost 114-88, and it was payback from Boston beating the Knicks by 41 points.
The Celtics are now (15-32), and losers of three straight, and they have dropped 15 of their last 17 games.As for something good, Chris Johnson, put up 12 points on 4-of-7 shooting over 22 minutes.He was just signed to his second 10-Day contract, and he continues to play well. For a good chunk of the game the Celtics shot 28-30% from the field, they surprisingly improved by the end of the game. They shot 39% from the field.
This may have been the worst loss of the season. The Celtics had two other games to compare this one to. The Houston game, and the Denver games were bad,but something about this one screamed worst of the year. The Celtics looked like a team that didn't know each other. They effort wasn't there. Jeff Green had a team-high 14 points, but he was 4-of-13, and he was just jacking up bad shots. The Celtics will have a chance to go back home against Philly tomorrow night to get this nasty taste out of their mouths. Will see.
