The Celtics' playoff quest is just getting started, and it feels like it's already over.

The Celtics don't have Kevin Garnett and they are not going to repeat. They are in for a bloody death and it's just a matter of who plays the executioner. It could be Cleveland or it could be Orlando.

But Chicago? The 41-41 Bulls?


The Celtics dropped a stinkbomb on North Station yesterday. Coming out flatter than Tommy Heinsohn's rookie haircut, the champs lost the first game of their title defense, 105-103, in overtime against Chicago.

Ray Allen drained a three-pointer with two seconds left to give the Celtics a 118-115 win over the Chicago Bulls in Game 2 of a first round playoff series tonight at TD Banknorth Garden. The series is tied, 1-1.

Who woulda thought this match up would be the most exciting of the first round, it's shaping up to be. I really can't stand either team but the games were great.

If Miami could play half as inspired as Chicago i'd be thrilled.

Kendrick Perkins (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/4383) is without pretense - about as plain spoken an individual as exists in the (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/4383)Celtics (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/4542) locker room. And when it comes to his opinion on how NBA referees treat his team, Perkins doesn't hold back. "I don't think the refs like the Boston (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/4383)Celtics (http://www.fannation.com/tags/show_tag/4542)," he said after yesterday's practice.

CHICAGO -- It was a primal scream, delivered with all the rock-star force and decibels that Joakim Noah (http://www.fanhouse.com/tag/Joakim+Noah/) could muster in a half-raucous, half-exhausted arena. "AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!" he yelled, or something like that. After another three hours and 56 minutes of psychoball, part of an epic series with four overtime games, seven overtime periods, 65 ties, 105 lead changes, 16 stitches, a claw to the face and a slammed body into an NBA Cares advertisement, what else would The Greatest First-Round Series Ever do but produce a Game 7?

Though it seems a little early in the postseason for such extreme drama, there is a good reason for the tightness of the Celtics-Bulls playoff series. The Celtics' explanation is that the Bulls' talent is better than that of a seventh-seeded team. And by that logic, the Celtics without Kevin Garnett probably are not a true No. 2 seed.

Big moment by Big Baby

Everyone dreams of taking the final shot in the final second, but not everyone really wants to do it. Truth be told, most guys want the ball in their hands as time is running out about as much as they want to sit next to someone with swine flu on a three-hour plane flight.

Glen Davis, however, wanted the ball as the final seconds were disappearing and the Celtics (http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/basketball/celtics/index.bg)options had dwindled down to him. When he got it with both Game 4 and the Eastern Conference semifinal series in jeopardy, he did what big men do in big situations, hitting a face-up, 21-foot jump shot as time expired to keep the Celtics from all but doing the same.

This time, it was the Celtics' turn to shut themselves down.

After rallying for two successive victories, Boston squandered a 10-point lead in falling, 83-75, to the Magic in Game 6 of their second-round playoff series last night. The deciding game is Sunday night at 8 at the Garden.
But this was not a characteristic Celtics collapse. They made defensive stands, limiting the Magic to 36.6 percent field goal shooting. But they lost their way offensively, scoring only 29 points in the second half and going scoreless over the final 3:47.


"We didn't run out of gas, I guess we just choked," guard Rajon Rondo said. "We turned the ball over and things did not go our way. We were not the more aggressive team. They fought back and stuck with it."

With 2:30 remaining, and his team trailing by 21, Doc Rivers said, "No mas."
He sent Tony Allen and Gabe Pruitt in for captain Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. Eighteen seconds later, he made the surrender complete by inserting Mikki Moore and Bill Walker for Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo, and so it was official even before the final buzzer.

The Celtics are now ex-champs.

Good riddance Celtics. Hopefully the Cavs win it all now.
