Found December 01, 2012 on Red's Army:
Well… that sucked. Following Friday night’s ass-kicking of Portland, I just knew – in my heart of hearts – the Celtics were ripe for a letdown loss in Milwaukee. And they didn’t disappoint. Bucks win, 91-88. The Green: The Celtics raced out to a 17-0 lead and led 27-11 at the end of the first quarter. They nearly doubled Milwaukee’s shooting percentage and forced 7 turnovers. Unfortunately, it was downhill from there. Jeff Green had 18 points on 8-11 FG. If it wasn’t for Green’s abuse of Jeremy Lamb in the 2nd quarter, the Celtics might have been blown out. And despite playing with Nike Air Cinder Blocks (props to Mr Triple Double for the line) Paul Pierce managed to drop 10 of his 19 points (6 assists, 5 rebounds) in the 4th quarter. The Gross: The Celtics allowed 36 points in the second quarter. The high water mark for the season. Grosser: We saw the worst of Leandro Barbosa tonight; 0 points, 0-4 FG, minus 11 in 13 minutes. That stat line doesn’t do him justice. He was awful. Gro...

Bucks Gone Wild

Consistency is something the Celtics have finally found, that is if being consistently inconsistent counts.  Watching the Celtic's quarters are almost like following two different movies at the exact same time which can be extremely frustrating, especially when they start out playing so well.

Slip sliding away: Boston falls 91-88

I’ll admit it. I really thought the Celtics were going to run away with this game.It was foolish, I know. I mean, why would I think that this team could hold a 17-0 lead? Stupid, stupid. I should have known that Milwaukee would come back, because, you know, the Celtics. The only question would be whether or not Boston could hold off Milwaukee’s comeback. They could not, as it...
