Sixer buzzer beater sinks Celtics 94-95

C's win the battle of who could care less.

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

After trading missed free throws in the final minutes, the Celtics got an open look at a potential game winner but Kris Humphries' shot didn't fall.  Evan Turner then drove the length of the court and hit a layup/floater in traffic to beat the buzzer and the Celtics.

Both teams went on extended runs but couldn't hold off the other for long.  The Celtics let the Sixers get in the paint way too often and were ice cold from the field, shooting just 36% on the game.  Yet they still found themselves with a chance to win the game.  Part of that was because they owned the boards, grabbing 59 compared to the Sixers 40.  Jared Sullinger (who else?) led the charge with 17 of those (and 24 points to boot).

  • Jeff Green started off really hot but was less effective later.
  • Phil Pressey might have had his worst game thus far, with 1-7 shooting and 5 turnovers to just 2 assists.
  • One point in 34 minutes from Gerald Wallace.  That's flat out hard to do.  I'm almost impressed.
  • The bench had their moments, with contributions from Olynyk, Humphries, Bayless, and Chris Johnson.  So there's that.
  • Aside from that, a whole lotta meh.

C's now have the 3rd worst record.  Tank you very much Philly.

Next up: The Orlando Magic who own the 2nd worst record in the league.
