After an embarassing loss at the hands of the lowly New Orleans Hornets, Boston came in with more focus against a strong Chicago Bulls team. The Bulls started strong and led most of the way, but Boston made a late game charge force a thrilling finale. The Celtics were far more aggressive on defense, but they still allowed to many easy put-backs and open jump-shots. After a dizzying back and forth, Marco Belinelli won the game on an off-balance shot with 3 seconds left.
Carlos Boozer dominated the first half, but cooled off as the game went on and Joakim Noah was solid with a double-double (13 points, 11 rebounds). Richard Hamilton nailed a bevy of tough jumpers to finish with 20 points.

Predictably, Barbosa has been relegated to mostly a bench role, which, despite the glut of guards on the roster, he didn’t quite see coming and apparently has made him unhappy.
This comes from ESPN Brazil. For those of you Portuguese speakers, Barbosa says
By now it is no secret that Boston Celtics forward Kevin Garnett likes to talk on the court. Whether it is an attempt to gain a mental edge over an opponent or KG genuinely not liking his adversary, he has been known to let his opponent know how he feels.
Typically opposing players won’t elaborate on on the court trash talk, but Bulls center Joakim Noah had some interesting...

8 a.m. ET: Two straight losses have given the Celtics reason to worry, so it may help to get away for a while. A two-game road trip against teams mired near the bottom of the standings therefore could be the perfect antidote.
Of course, an opponent that was overmatched on paper managed to halt the Celtics’ six-game winning streak, so the Pistons (14-25) should not be taken lightly...
