Not to be...

Celtics fall to Orlando tonight at Amway Arena 84-82. Orlando was up by as much as 16 in this game, but the Celtics crept back in during the 4th quarter. Paul Pierce got hot, and the C's held Dwight Howard scoreless in the 4th, but it wasn't enough. Pierce missed a baseline jumper as time expired. P2 led the Green with 26, ending a streak of 3 games in which he did not reach double-figures. Howard led the Magic with 24 and had 4 blocks. KG played about 16 minutes and wasn't much of a factor offensively with only 4 points, but he grabbed 8 boards. Of course the question on everyone's mind is "would we have won if KG played more tonight..?" Possibly, but we also turned the ball over 18 times which played a huge part in this loss also in my opinion. The Magic gave us some chances to take this game with missed shots or turnovers of their own, but we just couldn't breakthrough. Next up, another game that will have a playoff feel-we travel to the rowdy Phillips Arena to play the Atlanta Hawks. Tip-off is 7:30pm EST. Goodnite Celtics fans...


  1. Those damn turnovers kill em every time. I'm wondering if K.G. will be set for the playoffs now. This is another one of those games that will bother me for days. Hopefully they will silence the Hawks.

  2. Yeah...the TO's have killed us at times this year..KILLED us.
