That is the one word that comes to mind tonight. Sputter. The C's came out with a bang in the 1st quarter tonight, but it was all downhill after that. They were absolutely outplayed, outrebounded, outhustled and outlasted by the Spurs tonight. Final at the Garden: Spurs 94 C's 73. Here are the things that jump out at me: We were outscored 33-17 in the 3rd quarter, we went 1 of 14 from beyond the arc and we could not seem to get an offensive board. Paul Pierce led the C's with 18 and Shelden Williams had his best game as a Celtic, scoring 11 points in 11 minutes. Manu Ginobli led all scorers with 28. A couple of "hold your breath" moments tonight as KG and Truth both went down hard, but neither had to leave the game. Fans I spoke to after the game tonight at the Garden think this loss basically washes away the hope they had built off the C's last few good wins-Personally, I am really not sure what to make of the Celts right now.

Before I sign off, I want to give big thanks to Mike Deleon and Jeff Garcia of for hanging out with me this weekend. They both made the trek out here for the game and I really enjoyed chilling with them. They are both die-hard Spurs fans and great guys. Be sure to follow them both on Twitter: @mdeleon and @sa2ny2004. You can also check them out on of course. Also, big thanks to Nick and Brandon from and John from Had a great time with those guys tonight, despite the crappy outcome of the game. The C's are now off until Wednesday when the Thunder are in town. Tip-off at the Garden is at 7:30pm. Here is the one highlight from tonight:
