The Celtics beat the Bucks in Milwaukee last night, 107-104, although they needed an overtime period to get it done after the bench gagged away a 25-point lead in the third quarter. Playing in overtime at this point in the season sort of just seems like a joke, but the Celtics managed to keep a straight face and dispense with their pesky adversaries, whom they'll see again on Friday at the Gahden. Garnett, Pierce and Allen played 20, 21, and 22 minutes, while James Posey and Tony Allen played 35 and 31, respectively. So yeah, it was one of those nights, and I can only hope we should be ready for quite a few more in the coming week and a half.
Suffice it to say, I'm ready for the playoffs to start.
