Celtics final score: Mentally fatigued Celtics fall to Bulls 89-100

So, that went poorly. I didn't actually watch the game but I'm going to run down and delete it from the DVR so it doesn't infect my TV with a virus or something. Here's a part of a recap from someone who sat through it so I didn't have to.

Celtics vs. Bulls final score: Boston drops third-straight, loses to Chicago, 100-89 - SB Nation Boston

As Nate Robinson connected on back-to-back three pointers, the Celtics struggled to find any offensive rhythm, connecting on only one shot over the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter while the Bulls continued to pour it on. Robinson had 12 points in the final frame and the Bulls ran past the Celtics, who had two days of rest before playing in Chicago.

Joakim Noah got his second career triple-double for the Bulls, recording 13 rebounds, 11 points and 10 assists in the blowout win. The Boston bench combined for 16 points, with most of those coming in garbage time.
