Winning Ugly: C’s 84, 76ers 80

 

ESPN Box ScorePhiladunkiaLiberty Ballers

The C’s once again had a hard fought battle with the Sixers, pulling this one out yet again in the closing moments, albeit in much less dramatic fashion. And unlike the team’s win in Philly two weeks back, this game was nearly unwatchable for the first half and was easily the team’s worst offensive performance on the young season (shot a season low 38.4%).

Just how lucky were the C’s to get away with this win? Let’s count the ways:

1) Pierce, Nate, and KG were in foul trouble much of the game
2) The C’s shot just 25 percent in the fourth quarter
3) Philly at one point had a 29-7 edge in free throw attempts.
4) The ghost of Tony Battie came back to haunt Boston with 10 points.

On point number three, I was pretty pissed not to be listening to the CSN broadcast, because I can’t imagine the goodness coming out of Tommy’s mouth at that point.

Still, when push came to shove this team managed to find a way, as they have done for 14 straight games. It wasn’t pretty, but it doesn’t have to be when you’ve won 14 in a row. These guys were due for a stinker but still overcame it. Despite being inept offensively, they played well defensively for 36 minutes (not second quarter) and took care of the ball (just 10 turnovers!).

That’s enough from me for now, Hayes takes you home with a full recap on the way…….

    Yeah, Tommy was apoplectic tonight. The good news is that neither he nor we can be fined by the NBA for speaking the truth. So screw em. The refs totally stunk tonight, and they deserve whatever abuse and scorn is heaped on them. The cool thing is that the Cs won anyway… because these are the TOUGHEST games to win, when it's 5 vs. 8. It's very easy to give up on these games, as they did so often last season. But no… they fought even harder and persevered… and then Paul was hugging KG when they won. Big hug… like it was a playoff game or something. Like it really MATTERED! I guess it did. Beautiful. Great game. Love these guys.

      Yeah, the refs were really bad for the first three quarters. 29-7 is no fluke. They called touch fouls and even non-existent fouls. Luckily, they swallowed their whistles a bit in the 4th and called a better game. The Celtics got the calls when they were most important. I was pretty worried Iggy was going to get a call when he drove to the hoop that last time, but luckily the refs showed some restraint.

    14 and counting! KG had the game winning bucket in the first matchup with Philly, and tonight he had the game saving block. Can't wait for the Christmas day game against Orlando now. Hopefully Rondo is back for that one.
