There are a few tired eyes in Boston this morning. Late last night, the Warriors dropped the Celtics 119-117 in what was possibly the most exciting game the C's have played this year (particularly if you're a Warriors fan). This one went past 1am ET, and ended on a mind-boggling, heartbreaking Baron Davis jumper as time expired. Paul Pierce had hit two free throws with 6.5 seconds left, and Tony Allen's lockdown D seemed destined to send this one into OT until Baron did that thing he tends to do.
KG was much better tonight, if still a bit tentative, going for 17 and 15 in 31 minutes of work. Ray Allen poured in 32, and Pierce added a nice 23-5-5. Tony Allen played big as well, chipping in 18. Not much you can say about this one; it was wild throughout and, predictably, ended wildly as well. It also struck me as rather terribly officiated. This is only the second time the C's have suffered back-to-back losses this season, and given the nature of the defeats it's been tough. I don't know, there's probably other stuff worth commenting on but I'm seriously sleep-deprived. Things don't get much easier with Phoenix on Friday, either, nor any earlier.
