Boy, the Boston Celtics just can’t catch a break this year.
They win six games in a row… only to lose their next six. They lose Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season… only to lose Jared Sullinger two games later. They run off a surprising seven-game win streak, beating the Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers and Denver Nuggets… only to have it snapped by the cellar-dwelling Charlotte Bobcats Monday night.
It couldn’t possibly get any worse for the Celtics, could it?
With seconds remaining in the third quarter, Leandro Barbosa’s leg buckled from underneath him following a drive. He immediately fell to the floor clutching his left knee and had to be helped off the court.
The look of pain on his face signaled that it couldn’t be any good.
On Tuesday morning, an MRI confirmed the worst.
