Boston Celtics fans been telling the world the C's are for real this year! Media and basketball fans outside of Boston calling us delusional. Well the Celtics had their chance last night to prove us Boston homers right and everyone else wrong. How well did that go.....? The Celtics were embarrassed by the Atlanta Hawks 121-97 on TNT for everyone to see, and to fall to 7-7 on the season. To make matters worst, did you see those ugly sleeved uniforms the Celtics wore?
The Celtics were sluggish from the tip and just could never get over the hump. They cut the Atlanta lead down to 6 points in the 4th, but then the Hawks went ape shit knocking down three pointers at will. The Celtics just had no fire power and the defense was lousy at best without Smart's presence. Personally, I feel RJ Hunter should get more playing time in Smart's absence and keep Jonas Jerebko on the pine where he belongs. If were going to lose a premiere defender then lets replace him with the sharp shooting guard from Georgia State.
On a good note the Celtics get to put this ugly game behind them quickly as they play the win less Philadelphia 76ers at the Garden tonight! Philly comes into tonight's game donning the worst record in the NBA sitting at 0-15. The Celtics should and better get this win tonight!! Lets get it C's!!
