Not much to say about this one. Mo Williams and DeAndre Jordan decided they were going to put the Clips on their backs tonight. And they did. Clippers 108 Celtics 103. Williams: 28 points, 5 of 7 from beyond the arc. Jordan: 21 points on 9 of 10 from the field, and calmly buries 2 crucial free throws in the final minutes. This looked to me like one of those games that the C's thought they'd lay around in the weeds for 3 quarters and then pick it up in the 4th. Someone forgot to tell them the Clippers were a young, athletic team that could put up alot of points.

Celtics struggled from the field all night. By the time they found some range in the 4th, it was too late. Ray Allen led the C's with 23. Complete box score from ESPN here.

The schedule now becomes really rough for the C's-they have 6 games in 9 nights, including 2 back-to-backs. Next up, the red-hot Sixers (winners of 7 of their last 9 games) in Philly on Friday night. Tip-off is at 7pm.
