Quite honestly I don't know what to say about this one - the Celtics had their chances, and squandered them, with no help from the officials. The absurdist fatalism of the road follies continues, and at this point it is very hard to make any sense of it. I mean I can point out problems, but even so there is more to it. It's not just Glenn - although he had Paul playing point guard (wtf?) down the stretch, and didn't play Leon at all (despicable). It's not the officials - who were favoring the home team seemingly the whole game, accentuated by the Pierce offensive foul call at the end. And it's not just Pierce and Ray - although both pretty much sucked again. No, this fucked up situation is beyond these issues, and I have given up making sense of it for the time being.
I feel rather certain the Celtics will win on Sunday. I don't feel rather certain about anything else concerning the team. I wish I could tell you that arguably KG's best offensive game of the year meant something deeper, but I can't. I just don't know. I do know Detroit is going to have plenty of time to rest, and that no one I was watching with tonight thinks the Celtics are going to beat them. But the Celtics currently might be beyond our perceptions. I don't get it, none of it adds up, and I'm gonna have to reflect once this whole ride is over to understand a bigger picture. More could be written, but it'd be phony. That can be saved for the morning papers.
