No Rajon Rondo, no Kevin Garnett, no problem. Err, I mean, plenty of problems.
Ray Allen missed a contested three-pointer with five seconds remaining, and the Celtics lost by two points, 83-81, to the New Orleans Hornets. The Celtics struggled to score baskets for much of the night (see: no Rajon Rondo), but a 16-0 fourth-quarter run left the C’s ahead by seven points with 6:26 left. From then, they were a lot like my one friend who gets zero girls — they just couldn’t close.
Trevor Ariza hit a three-pointer while Paul Pierce was inside Ariza’s jersey, Glen Davis took (and clanked) a late three-pointer (why? Why???? WHYYYY????????), and the C’s allowed a win to slip through their hands.
I would contribute more, but, well, it’s New Year’s Eve. Have a nice night, everyone, and be safe.
