Youth Is Wasted On The Young

New, comments

This is what worries me about the playoffs.  We've already seen this team struggle against young, athletic teams and we're getting older every day while the young teams are gaining experience and confidence.

Pierce did what he could, Rondo and Perkins each got double doubles, but it wasn't enough.  The Hawks hit shot after shot and seemed to come up with every loose ball down the stretch.

Now we are 0-2 vs. the Hawks.  Hopefully a healthy KG and a more focused Celtics team would be able to beat them in the playoffs.  Hopefully.

Video highlights and box score after the jump.
