Celtics Have No Excuse for Lazy Debacle
Who scores 67 points, second-lowest ever in the NBA Finals, in a potential elimination game? Who falls behind by 22 points in the first half and loses 89-67? Who shoots an abysmal 33 percent from the field and manages merely 13 points from the bench, including an astonishing goose egg in 27 minutes from Game 4 hero and press-conference comic Glen "Big Baby" Davis and an even more galling shutout from Rasheed (0 for 7, four fouls) Wallace? Who looks like they never boarded the plane from New England, missing eight of their first nine shots and getting pounded 30-13 on the boards in the first two quarters? I understand the league is predicated on home-court advantages, but this debacle had absolutely nothing to do with conspiracy theories or suspicious officiating.
