The Celtics posted one of the best first quarters in recent memory, and for the entire NBA season so far. They put up 42 points, and everything seemed perfect. The Celtics lost the last three quarters Wednesday night, and they ended up losing 107-106 as a result of the final three quarters.


"We got outplayed for 36 minutes," said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. "And in a 48-minute game, that's usually a bad sign."

And it wasn't just the 18 turnovers that led to 30 points for Detroit, either.

"They played very free, obviously, but they also know, as we all know, everybody that's in this room knows there's been a lot of NBA games and 19 points is nothing," Stevens said. "They got shots at the rim off our turnovers and that was the key in the game again."

Jennings socred 28 points and 14 assists. That was the highest totals in both categories posted by a Celtics' opponent this season. He was one of those guys playing free all night. Even Josh Smith in the final quarter had some big baskets in the 4th.

Didn't get to watch this game but with that many turnovers and detroit scoring that many pts off turnovers it'd be hard to win.

Smith was way to open, Green played off him,and maybe it wasn't a bad move. Smith is a poor shooter despite him able to make a few jumpers.
