Forgive this lame recap but I haven't had time to watch the game yet. From what I gather, things were good, then they were really, really bad (before getting a tiny bit better later on).
Boston came out of the gates humming at both ends of the court and pulled ahead by 18 points during the opening frame. The remainder of the contest featured a complete role reversal, as Indiana led by as many as 26 points and cruised to a 96-77 victory.
Rookie Marcus Smart had his second straight subpar game on the offensive end, going just 3-of-15 from the field to finish with 11 points.
Boston shot a mere 34.3 percent as a team overall.
