Too many positive posts.

Sorry, but I have seen too many posts about "fighting the good fight" and "still being proud of the team" and I just can't get there yet.  I have had alot of emotional investment in this team and that was the most embarrasing game I have watched all year.  I would like to hear from the coaches and players about how you can't get up for a game like this.  Rondo's penetration has been key for us all year and suddenly he thinks he's a jump shooter.  Isn't it the coaches responsibility to notice this and make adjustments?  KP, who deserves the most accolades for this series plays Howard to a virtual draw and we get beaten like a drum in our own building?  If he doesn't have to slide over to cover Alston and Redick after they have abused their defenders, Howard probably scores 4 points!  Is Paul hurt?  He just seemed as if he could only muster a couple of minutes of energy every quarter. Hedo and Peitrus just took turns abusing him and he didn't even seem to mind.  Its hard for me to imagine KG going as quietly as this group did.  Instead of letting Howard dunk and pose, how about putting him on his rearend a couple of times and see if he can hit free throws.  If you know you are shooting poorly, how about having a couple of guys hitting the offensive boards and here's a novel idea, how about having someone guard the 3 point shooters.  I think we were told coming in that they liked to shoot from the arc, but it seemed as if we were daring them to make wide open shots.  Marbury seemed to be the only one that felt any sense of urgency.  Whoever developed Orlando's defensive scheme should be applauded.  The Celtics coaches never seemed prepared for what was thrown at us and even when Paul was triple teamed, their never seemed to be an open man. 

OK, I feel a little better now.  I just had to get that off my chest and maybe in the coming days i can look back a little more fondly on this group and what they accomplished this year.  

Number 18 in 2010!
