Looks like the local Fox Sports affilliate that normally covers the Celts games is blanked out for us here in Boston too. Guess I'll have to try and listen to it on the radio if I can. They're carried on WWZN, which has terrible broadcast signal, especially at night. :mad:

I don't know about all of you, but I've got a bad feeling about this game. Were complaining to the officials, shooting poorly and getting outhustled. I hope it changes dramatically in the 3rd period!! or this could be a BAD loss.

Keeping the faith though!!

Amazing -- Boston shot precisely TWICE as many FT's as we did. Were they REALLY that much more aggressive around the bucket than we were?

I smell a rat -- or three.

Comment by Celtics coach John Carroll after the game: "Sometimes it feels like you're in a boat with 20 holes and you have 10 plugs..."

Better get used to it, Carroll - the Celts are sinking fast! :laugh:
