    What is the problem?

    Lost to a team w/o their best player, at home? No rebound with terrible offense. what a shame!

    Could tell in the 1st quarter, first 4 of 5 possessions were turnovers. Celtic offense was standing around while Rondo dribbled down the shot clock. Things went downhill from there.

    Lets also give some credit to Joey Crawford and his crew who called another horrendous game.

    I don't get it...  I am no big b-ball fan, but, how can the Celtics go into Miami and DOMINATE the Heat and then come home and lose to the Thunder?  Lack of focus?

    Baby was 2-6 at the line. Semih is 0-2. What is wrong tonight? No defense but terrible offense.

    P34, of course not.  But to lose at home to the Thunder without Durant?  Come on.

    Im going to say it again.  They went away from SHAQ, who was hot in the 4th!!!!!  The THUNDEr had no answer for him.  I blame that on Rondo or Doc for not sticking with the best offensive option.

    Cs need to play every game as a underdog team. Not a defending eastern champs.  Lost to Cleveland and now oklahoma minus Durant are terrible losses. That is why they won't have home court later in playoffs. Game 7 on the road, they are not that good, to win.

    Some people believe this team has a closer. Where is he? If this team does not play good defense, they can not beat any team in NBA. They don't have enough offense talents.

    It's the NBA, there are no freebies. Every team is capable of winning. 

    How can you beat a team that makes a 3-point bank shot, with 2 defenders contesting the shot, as the shot-clock is about to expire?

    That's not OK. But I'd rather lose like tonight than getting beat by Miami, Orlando, or the Lakers. 

    The Celtics can lose 4 games every month and still end up with 57 wins.

    Everyone knows that if the Celtics took this game seriously they would have won. This loss is what you call an aberration. Westbrook is not a 3-point shooter, only 14.3% in the season, but he went 2-3 tonight. It was just not the Celtics night.

    As long as you know that it's NOT OK then cool, I get it...at the end of the season no ones gona be saying but they lost to a KD and Green-less OKC at home... but really we should try hard to win the 'easier' games

    Flat game for the green...hot game for the Thunder from down town...only dissapointment is nobody on the Celtics stepped up other than Shaq; needed one more player to take over; sometimes the team concept doesn't get it done in an ugly game under 90 points scored.

    Re: What is the problem?

    lovetruth is going on ignore. Doesn't understand the game or the team. Celts are a good offensive team: http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/teamstats. see the numbers for yourself, instead of making them up.

    most teams in the NBA win games and lose games. Same is true in MLB and NFL. How did the Patriots lose to the Browns and then hammer the Steelers? 

    Part of it is about matchups, young fast teams are a bad matchup for the Cs, part of it is that in NBA history, only one team (the 72 win Bulls) came to play every single game. 

    Worry about the team when the losses start piling up. Until they do, don't sweat one loss or keep yourself up late trying to figure out why it's happened. It's frustrating, yes, but let's see how they rebound.

    Re: What is the problem?

    If Durant had played, I bet the C's would have won since they wouldn't have come out thinking they could just roll over them.

    Hubie Brown said something like the way they played reminded him of the team in the second half of last year's regular season: everyone was a half count slow on everything.

    They took the opponent lightly and didn't come to play.  A stinker.  70 games to go. Let's move on.

    Let's put it this way, if the Celtics go 40-1 at home this season there will be fans that would say we should have been 41-0 because Durant and Jeff Green did not play in that loss.

    I agree that they should have won last night's game and especially need to win most of their home games.  Hope this doesn't become like last year, where they lose many of their Friday night home games.

    Ever played sports yourself at a competitive level? Never underestimated an "easy opponent"? Its very simple, you have to take every team seriously because if you don't, well, you saw what happened last night.

    Re: What is the problem?

    As poorly as the C's played, the difference came down to free throw shooting. Take away Garnett's ten for ten and the rest of the team was seven for seventeen. That's just not going to get it done.  Lack of focus apparently creeps into free throw shooting, too.  Also, West should have gotten more minutes. The C's defense was much tighter when he was on the floor.  He got in Westbrook's shirt and stayed there.

    And that flagrant on Shaq? Totally bogus.

    I thought that DWEst played with plenty of energy. He is not the most gifted athlete on the team but he (our "walking Tommy point" according to Heinsohn) plays with desire... consistently...  with desire.... as opposed to our all star PG who plays hot/cold, with too much/little confidence at times.

    Lets hope that some of Delonte's hard nosed day in/out blue collar hustle rubs off on his teammates.

    We need consistency and leadership (by example) at the PG position.
