Tough Loss for C's & for Smart....
After blowing out the Brooklyn Nets Friday night at the Garden, the Celtics suffered a terrible loss at the Barclays Center Sunday. The Celtics literally thought they could win just by showing up. Well, lets just say they were wrong! Shots that were falling Friday were clanging Sunday night, and it seemed the Nets couldn't miss.... Seriously, did you see it? Joe Johnson and Brook Lopez were unstoppable, and when the Celtics finally contained them Jarret Jack took over and finished off the C's.
Not only did the Celtics lose to the bottom feeder Nets, we also lost Marcus Smart to a lower leg injury that will have him sidelines dor at least 2 weeks. His defensive prowess was definitely missed as Jarret Jack killed the smaller Isaiah Thomas using ball screens with Brook Lopez. Thomas is a blessing on offense, but such a liability when defending bigger point guards.
The Celtics will look to rebound tomorrow night as they travel to Atlanta to play the Hawks. They beat Atlanta 10 days ago at home at the Garden, but to pull out another win against them without Smart they will need to bring more energy and consistency to the offensive end. The Celtics will need more from Sully and Amir down low on both ends of the floor. We need offensive rebounds and more "Tommy Points" from them! On to Atlanta we go, lets get it C's!
