CSNNE.com's Celtics insider A. Sherrod Blakely shares his thoughts on the C's following their 113-99 loss to the Lakers.
-- just talk Antawn Jamison as he came off the -- he said that we put under achievers the first half everybody. Knows that but he said if we can just play consistently throughout the second half of the season. We can get into the playoffs that we can kind of reversed course they played pretty consistently tonight from the jump in a very emotional night. Yeah and I think you know you there's so many factors they came to play it as you losing Greg emotion of of doctor Jerry Buss and his death certainly. Kind of really recharge those guys. And there are only three U2 or three games out of that eighth and final playoff spot but from the Celtics side of things become a -- back to back against one. One of the team that really tires throughout the different other than -- saving digital altitude factor. There's just a lot of things -- working against the Celtics tonight. You know I heard from coaches on on a couple of occasions at halftime and into the third quarter. There was no force one of the coaches had to -- we just didn't have any fight that we don't have any fight that's the reason they -- a 64 points in the first that. Did you get that sense and I sure didn't get the sense that they found that like the second. And now Flozell almost like we're back in November when we're trying to figure out what's wrong with this team why are they not play no more force at the half. Let is that eighteenth reveals the Celtics have four and -- miss thrills for -- not gonna win games let alone gives little road where you're not getting to the privilege. -- forcing your will on the opponent and the Celtics at no point we're able to do that finally is this the last time was this the last time tonight that we see Paul Pierce. And nor Kevin Garnett the Celtics uniform hole there's another game where on the court you know that Greg I don't think either one of those guys is going anywhere. Certainly Didier is not a lot of difference is that those guys their names have come up but I just don't think that Danny is gonna get the kind of value do you like your return to pull a bill also I think. We'll see another game -- two. We're 22 according to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett yeah.
