Sorry, but there's no way I'm staying up to the end of this game.  Feel free to use this post to react to the game.

Jeff packed it in.  I was about to, until the moment that scared every Celtics fan to death.  KG goes up for a lob, comes down untouched and hobbling straight to the locker room.  Given that he clearly didn't roll an ankle, surely we all thought it was an Achillies.   The Chuckster looked like he wanted to throw up about as much as I did at half time and was openly hoping it wasn't the dreaded achillies rupture.

The update is an Strained Knee (the right one).  No KG in the second half.  I now only midly feel like seeing dinner in reverse.  Apparently that knee has been bothering him for a few weeks and the knee is very sore (per Danny).

Oh and the game. 

  • Dick Bavetta is the best blind, 140 year old ref in the history of basketball.  His other 2 co-workers are also fine NBA officials. 
  • Scal started for KG in the 3rd, and promptly picked up 4 fouls in 2 minutes.  That's not a stretch for the highlight reel Scal.
  • Perk is unleashing the long-range lazer tonight, hitting the 15ft jumper.
  • Down the stretch Doc pulled the old PP-iso play out of his coaching bag of tricks.   Paul was gassed, had no lift on his jumper after playing most of the 2nd half and as a result the usually clutch Pierce couldn't get one down. 
  • Celts fall in a very, very winnable game.
