Jeff started the day off with a Nirvana themed post title. So there is some symmetry for you. Other possible song selections (Blew, Drain You, Downer...let's face it, there are lots of miserable Nirvana songs, I could list most of them here).
Celts fall again, to the Cats! no less in overtime. I'm sure everyone has some thoughts as to what is wrong. Let's hear 'em in the comments.
Some general thoughts:
- The bench play has been....lackluster of late. Despite the constant cries, Posey is not what is missing. He wasn't the big scorer that the Celtics are missing.
- Clutchiness is lacking. Sure Paul made a great shot to force overtime, but really the NBA champs should be closing out bad teams down the stretch, if not blowing them out.
- Rondo was meh in the first half and better in the second half, but not playing at that all-star level he had going pre-Christmas.
- The D gave up 48% shooting tonight. Now paging Dr. Thibs.
