Well folks, we might be able to point to this game as the end of the new Big 3 era. Because effort and execution get no worse than this. The Celtics let the Pistons hang around for 3 quarters and then they crapped themselves as they got out-scored 25-16 in the fourth quarter.... leading to a 98-88 loss to the Detroit Pistons.
Yeah, those Pistons.
Paul Pierce had a game so horrible tonight, that I'd go ask him privately if everything was OK... y'know... personally. He shot 3-11 and finished with 10 points. Ray Allen was 1-5 for for 10 points. Both of these guys flat out sucked tonight.
Rajon Rondo, meanwhile, was awesome for 3 quarters. He had a career high 35 points on 15-27 shooting and 6 assists. Rajon sat for the first 3:34 of the fourth and he deferred to Ray and Paul for the rest of the game. So go ahead haters... blame Rondo for this one too since he wasn't selfish enough to finish out this game and go for 50.
Chris Wilcox had his best game as a Celtic with 17...
