Not tonight..

Got back from the Garden about an hour ago. Exhausting night. Celts seemed to be in control heading into halftime, but things fell apart in the 2nd half. The Sixers end the Celtics win-streak beating them tonight 98-97. Elton Brand got a tip-in with about 7 seconds left that sealed the C's fate. Brand led the Sixers, and all scorers, with 23. Paul Pierce and Ray Allen both put up shots in the final seconds, but couldn't connect. KG led the C's with 21 and hit 2 clutch free-throws in the final minute, but it wasn't enough. The C's defense blocked 7 shots and grabbed 30 boards, but couldn't seem to get the crucial stops they needed. Rasheed Wallace flipped out on one of the referees and charged after him before be restrained by coach Tom Thibodeau and KG. Sheed was subsequently ejected. C's are now off until Sunday when they face the TWolves at the Garden. Tip-off is at 6pm. A win would've capped off an otherwise great night. Got to meet Kyle and Tung, who are both avid Celts fans I met on Twitter, and met WEEI's Kristine Leahy tonight. Very nice young woman. Goodnight Celtics fans all over the world...
