The Celtics Are 0-5 When They Let Their Opponents Score 100+ Points

Let that stat settle in, and then ask yourself: What's scarier? The record? Or the fact that the Celtics have given up 5, 100-point games? The Celtics have only played a total of 10 different teams, but already half of them have scored over 100 points.

The Pistons, Heat, Sixers, Nets and now Spurs have dented the Celtics defense, and burned the C's for an average of 108.6 points a game. Take a closer look, and you'll realize that 4 of those 5 teams reside in the Eastern Conference. Take an even closer look, and you'll see that 2 out of those 4 Eastern Conference teams are in the Atlantic Division.

The other side of the coin isn't looking too shiny either. The Celtics are only 3-3 on the season when they themselves score 100 points.

Against the Spurs, Doc Rivers says the Pick and Roll defense was the problem. He said that teams were "picking on us", and that may have to be one of his points of emphasis going into Friday night's game against OKC.

For this particular game, I was shocked to see Doc Rivers playing Chris Wilcox for only 9 minutes. In a game where the front court of the opposing team is scoring 69 points, you would think that you would try to counter it with some size of your own.

Oh well, the next red light on the B-18 bus is the Oklahoma City Thunder. OKC is coming off of an overtime win against the Clippers, but hopefully they'll be too tired (and too fat from that thanksgiving dinner) to compete once they fly to Boston.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
