Dismal Performance For The Celtics
Posted by Nancy on June 16, 2010
Wow, talk about what a difference a day makes! Instead of smiles and high fives, the Celtics slumped off the floor of the Staples Center after being humiliated by the Lakers with a 67-89 loss. Boston matched the fourth lowest scoring half of the history of the NBA finals.
That is not a record anyone would want attached to their club. The scoring total for the “fab four” was only off by one point from the previous meeting but in this game the bench did basically zilch. The rest of the team managed a pitiful 13 points total. Yikes, no wonder they lost big. Kobe contributed his usual amazing play, adding 11 rebounds and 7-7 on field goals for L.A. They also got a lot more help from their bench and were basically more energetic and determined that the boys from Boston. It all comes down to one final game which will be played tomorrow night (again at the Staples Center) Here’s hoping that the team can put that dismal loss behind them and regroup for a much improved outing tomorrow night.
