The offense has imploded this half. Rozier killed any sort of ball movement this team had. Put in Larkin please.

Yeah, that's the thing with Rozier - if he's not getting his own offense, he's pretty much a hindrance out there. At least Larkin plays more of a "true PG" game by initiating the offensive sets and getting others involved.

Not that the Cs had much of a chance tonight, but this is a script on how not to hold a lead. They come out of half-time fouling like crazy, including putting their struggling star on the line twice. They then proceed to leave their star wide open for two 3s in a row. While over the limit, they continue to stupidly foul. All the while the whole team starts to feel great, leading to all-out momentum for the home team.

It's just disappointing to see not only lack of execution, but such a lack of focus on the defensive end. I guess it wouldn't really matter if we were actually scoring, but that isn't happening at all either.

Is Larkin hurt?

God, Semi and Nader are so freaking terrible. Really hope they're buried on the bench next year when we're not so beat up with injuries.

The Celtics are never going to score again.

If this was a "scheduled loss" I wish it could have been an EDT game.

This unit isn't doing much right.  Poor shot selection, careless passing, poor transition defense.  Then when they do make a good play, they're either bricking the shot or not getting a call. 

Ugly ball.

I was a little worried I might have to stay up until midnight tonight. I guess that is not the case. Good night, folks - that sure deteriorated quickly.  :(

Bird is the word.
Once you are labeled 'the best' you want to stay up there, and you can't do it by loafing around.

We'll be fine, wait until the fourth before making any conclusions.

Not sure what took so long to get Larkin back in there with Rozier's terrible night. One is a + 13 and the other is a -23...
