Key turnovers and shooting woes doom Boston as they lose their 2nd game in a row at home 100-99 to the Bulls. Joakim Noah’s steal with 0.09 left in the 4th led to a Kirk Heinrich 15-footer at the 0.02 mark which tied the game at 88. KG then missed a three-pointer (even though the game was tied) at the buzzer and we were headed to OT. The Celtics could only muster 1 field goal in the final 1:04 of the overtime, an missed yet another three-pointer that wasn’t needed as time expired to fall 100-99. Paul Pierce and KG both struggled to find an offensive rhythm, combining for a 10 of 33 night from the field. You’d have thought Boston would’ve tried to get something at the rim on both of their final possessions on a night were 60 FT’s were taken by the two teams. Sixty.
