Merde. I miss the days when we didn't lose to the Western Conference. The Green just suffered their third straight L, and unlike the previous two, there was plenty not to like about tonight's game against Phoenix. While the Denver loss was too ridiculous to get upset about, and the GS defeat too jubilant a game to be downtrodden over, tonight's contest was ugly and seemingly without merit. It is never a shame to lose to the Suns, still maybe the best team in the league, but the Celtics made a poor show of it tonight. The offense was abject, laden with Ray and PP's anemically combined 19 points. No one on the C's had a particularly good game. KG looked alright but was outplayed by Amare (who was in no mood to take KG's meddlesome barbing.) The defense was fine. Powe inexplicably played only four and a half minutes. And we have a honest to goodness losing streak. I would like to write more, but am too tired to do so. Plus Donny Marshall's voice is ringing in my head annoyingly. If the C's are gonna lose three in a row, there is no shame in how it has gone down. But if they lose to Portland on Sunday, perhaps the mice will begin to play. We'll see.
