Well, that was a disaster. The Celtics had another beautiful first half, but it was followed up by a craptastic second half. After watching these two games closely. I have come to one big conclusion. The Celtics can not win this series. They just can't. They can't score the ball, and KG looks like he's 50 years old. They don't have a play maker, and they don't even need a great one like Rondo. They need a guy who can run a team, and they don't.


The Celtics outscored the Knicks 28-16,and they held a 6 point lead at the half, and that lead should have been much higher. Paul Pierce forced a bad turnover trying to get a 2-for-1, and it led to a Raymond Felton layup.Kevin Garnett (12 points, 11 rebounds, 5 fouls in 23 minutes)He was hit with foul trouble, and CSNNE says KG could be injured. This is just not the Celtics year.


Boston's offense fell apart in the second half for the second time this series. The Knicks opened the third quarter on a  blazing 24-4 run while building a 14-point cushion that made the difference. 


The Celtics followed up their 25 point second half in game 1, with a 23 point second half in game two. Jason Terry showed up in the first half with 9 points, but was nonexistent in the second. The same for Jeff Green who ended the game with 10 points in 35 minutes. Pierce had a team high 18 points. This sucks guys, I wish I had a cloud of positivity for all of you, but I don't. Maybe tomorrow, or maybe the day after. If you go by winning percentages. Teams who take 2-0 leads win the series 94% of the time.

Bradley is an over hyped player. Those who thought Bradley was a better defender then Rondo you shouldn't be allowed to watch another game ever.

I think bradley played fine defense. Aside from jr smith coming out hot in the first quarter when bradley guarded him he was pretty much held in check. I don't think this series is over but it got alot harder and we will still have to wn a game in new york eventually. I just won't lose faith until the series is over because you never know with the knicks if we deliver a strong counter they might not be able to mentally recover.
