Celtics fall to Philly, 113-108

Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 28 points, but it wasn't enough in this one, as the 76ers pulled away in the 4th quarter for a 113-108 win. What can I say about the last play of the game? Rondo, why did you dribble out the last 15 seconds? That is why fans despise you. As for Rondo, he finished with a near triple-double. Rondo finished with, 8 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds in 42 minutes of work.

The Celtics led by 10 early in the first half, then fell behind by as much as 19 early in the second half. The Celtics showed some grit to get back into the game. The thing is, Boston's defense has been awful. The loss of Hump seems bigger than it seems. He's no rim protector, but Boston lacks an inside anchor right now. The 76ers took advantage by scoring 64 points in the paint.

Bradley finished with 23 points, and Green had a steady 27 points. Rondo was a +16, and his backup Pressey was -24 on the night. Overall I was okay with the offense, but on the defensive end, and Rondo's late game blub was forgettable.
