After a 33 point 4th quarter drubbing at the hands of the defending NBA Champions Spurs on their home court, the Boston Celtics traveled to Atlanta hoping to turn the tide. Instead, they were swallowed by another 4th quarter tidal wave.
The Celtics (4-11) came out hot, scoring 42 points in the first quarter and held a 66-50 lead at the break and were shooting a hot 61%. Then the Hawks went on a 20-5 run to open the third quarter. The Celtics managed only 19 points in that quarter.
“I think we’re getting to the point where we’re tired of losing the same way,” veteran Gerald Wallace said. “It seems like we play good for stretches in games. We’re trying to find the answers to those lagging moments in games that we have. That was the main thing we are more concerned about. We’re dropping our heads when teams get going.”
The Celtics are back home facing a team much more aligned with the Celtics, the 3-15 Detroit Pistons. Plenty of affordable tickets and great seats are still available so be sure to get yours now!
