Tired legs and one head-scratching move by Doc Rivers, sealed the fate of the Boston Celtics. We all knew from the start that this was going to be a game of will rather than that of skill. Pierce and Garnett kept them in it, but with no one willing to drive the ball, they reverted to old habits. KG did ass he is wont to do, drifting farther and farther away from the basket.
No one can blame him after having played 47 minutes of a 3OT game against Denver. PP could be excused as he put in 54 minutes of work in that same game. Jason Terry seemed to have forgotten his mid-range game and is falling more and more in love with his three-point shot. Yet, in spite of losing Leandro Barbosa possibly for the year and their mental lapses they had a chance to win the game.
I suppose you can say the aforementioned players did their job in Sunday night's game and expected the role players to stand up and deliver against a sub .500 team, a scrappy Charlotte Bobcats. The opposite happened.
