Hear that, “Thud”?
That’s the sound of optimism crashing down to earth for some of us overly-excitable Boston Celtics fan. Losses on consecutive nights to the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers have the Celtics at 10-14, with a mere 2.5 games in between Boston and the last place New York Knicks. Not good.
But there’s still a lot of games left to play, and I’m sure coach Brad Stevens is cooking up a gameplan for tomorrow’s match-up with those last-place Knicks. So, I’ll stop worrying and get on with the links!
