Last night the Celtics won their 12th straight victory despite missing some key cogs due to injury. While I don’t have a full photo essay for you, I do have a little game. Below is a seemingly innocuous picture of the Celtics getting into an offensive set. That said, there is something hilarious about this picture that made me (literally) laugh out loud while I was watching the game last night. Can you tell me what made me laugh? I’ll give you a hint: This screen shot was taken in the second quarter, around the 5 minute mark:
The answer after the jump.
That would be Doc Rivers with his face in his hands. Why is Doc Rivers holding his face in exasperation? Because moments earlier, the Celtics caused the Hawks to commit a sure-fire backcourt violation. Unfortunately, Nate Robinson decided to run the ball down and throw in ill-advised pass to Kevin Garnett. The ball, off target and rolling through traffic, was picked off by the Hawks and ultimately became an intricate part of a Jordan Crawford three pointer.
The Celtics won though, so all’s well that ends well? Right?
