The Celtics go from their best game of the season. To their worst game of the season. The Celtics lost to the 1-9 Pistons. The story for the Celtics? Jump shooting won't win you ball games on a second night of a back-to-back. I have no idea on how they made 45% from the field. The Celtics were out rebounded 39-30. This game shows us that the Celtics are not there yet. This is the type of game when you expect the Celtics to rely on their youth. It felt like the Celtics played with no urgency, and they expected the Pistons to crumble.
The Celtics played an early game yesterday, and they were rested. I won't allow them to use the tired card.Greg Monroe had 20, and Maxiell added 15 points. They spanked the Celtics. Maxiell was hitting everything in the third quarter.
Rondo's streak barley survived. With 52 seconds to go. Sullinger nailed a 20 foot jumper to save the day for Rondo. Rondo is at 34 now. But this game took a hit to Rondo's campaign for MVP. I'll have more on this game, but right now I'm really disappointed.
