More in-depth analysis will come in the morning, due to the fact that I still have not watched the game. I know, I know, I’m a Celtics blogger who missed a Celtics game. I suck. But I actually do have to earn money, somehow, and thus I covered the Springfield Armor tonight rather than watch Jeff Green’s finest moments as a Celtic.
For those of you wondering (*nobody raises a hand*) the Armor lost, 114-79, and Dee Brown handled it like most coaches handle a seventh straight loss — by closing off the locker room to reporters for half an hour, then calling his team’s play “a f—ing piss-poor effort”, then saying no Knute Rockne speech could have helped matters, then saying his players should give their checks back if they don’t want to play. Ouch.
Of course, you don’t care. You care about the Celtics. And they won, barely, while withstanding Monta Ellis’ 41 points. Ray Allen (as Ray Allen tends to do) shot the lights out, Paul Pierce does what he does best (score, a lot) and Green, as I mentioned earlier, was supposedly phenomenal (Troy Murphy? Not so phenomenal).
I’ll tell you more tomorrow, after I actually watch the game, but for now, revel in the new-look Celtics’ fourth straight win.
