We’re still less than half-way through the 2012-13 regular season. We don’t know how this year will turn out. Things got ugly early this season. 14-17 is an ugly record.

Down 53-38, the Celtics looked lifeless and lacking any momentum they may have gathered from Friday’s win over Indiana. They also happened to be on the road, where defensive teams win and average teams lose. Then came the third.
An ideal third, if any regular-season quarter can be called ideal.
