On to the next one..

"Damn Andray-your pits STINK."
C's fall to the Wiz in Washington tonight 85-83. It snaps the Celts 5-game win streak. The Celtics came out of the gates on fire, finishing the 1st quarter with 35 points. But the C's were not so hot in the 2nd half, specifically the 4th quarter where they shot 5 of 23 for a season-low 11 points. Rashard Lewis led all-scorers with 18 points, and KG led the C's with 17.

This was the 2nd of a back-to-back for both teams, and the C's legs just got a bit too tired late in the game from what I saw. I have to give alot of credit to Semih Erden-he started in place of an injured Shaq and had 6 points & 11 boards against a young, talented Wizards front line.

C's now have a much-deserved 2 days off before facing the Cavs at home on Tuesday. Tip-off is at 7:30pm. Then, the C's embark on what will surely be a challenging road-trip. They travel out west to face the Fakers, Blazers, Kings and Suns.
