The 1st half of tonight’s game subjected Celtics fans to more of the same: turnovers (10) opponents points in the paint (20+) and poor defense. Samuel Dalembert had taken 6 shots all season coming into tonight, yet found himself with 3 dunks alone in the first quarter. It was the same bad rotation/poor pick and roll defense we’ve seen thus far from Boston. 20 of  the Bucks’ first 22 points came in the paint, and the C’s were fortunate to only be down 22-20 after 1 quarter. Things then went from bad to worse in the 2nd. The Celtics offense looked completely lost-they had only one made field goal in the first 7 minutes of the quarter. Turnovers started to add up (10 in the 1st half) and it looked like the Bucks were about to open things up. But thankfully with about 3 minutes left in the 2nd, the C’s went on a 9-2 run, and were lucky to go into halftime only down by three: 42-39. Celts shot 35% from the field in the 1st half, and both teams combined for a horrid 2 of 14 from downtown....
