|Pierce foreshadowing the end of the game early.|
Let me revisit that shooting stat: Players who aren't named Rondo or Pierce combined for 15-42. How about 3 point shooting? 3-18. The eye test tells us that the Celtics played terrible offense for certain stretches; it's one thing if your shots don't fall but if it's another if you run amateur offense.
The silver lining is: Rondo had another triple-double (23 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) We kept the game close mostly and we played good defense for about 3.5 quarters. Pierce got his shot back a little.
But yeah, that's about it. It was a deserved and unlucky loss (yeah, those two are somehow mutually exclusive), and if we don't win tomorrow against Hawks, we'll officially be in the danger zone.
