I was too tired last night to post after the game, but truthfully I don't have much to write anyway. It's easy to get critical or be lenient with the Green after this loss, because Game 3's are notoriously difficult to win given the situation. So, yeah, plenty of bad shit happened yesterday - the Celtics were mauled at the beginning, never recovered, and looked to be the same screwed up bunch that we got familiar with in Atlanta. But that said, it's a Game 3. After the initial destruction that led to a 26 point hole, it seemed like the Celtics actually held it together some. Of course if "holding it together" means never even cutting the deficit below 12 maybe I'm being too easy on the guys. I just don't know. I feel like Game 4 is gonna tell us what this game really meant. Last night we again saw something absent from the regular season - a blowout where the Celtics never got it close. If ATL hadn't happened it would be shocking, but ATL occurred, and now as fans we just have to roll with the punches and see if this team actually has its act together. Last night didn't help me draw any conclusions, negatively or positively.
