I don't believe I've ever seen Johnson go under a pick.

Celts shooting 21% and trailing by 3. Rondo just handed out his 4,000th career assist.

16 minutes into the game, and the Mavs lead 23-22. They might as well be wearing long stockings and taking two-handed set shots out there.

Tommy really gets worked up when the subject of tanking is brought up. It is a good thing Tanguay doesn't do Celtic games anymore, that is all he preaches. He even says Rondo is tanking games, IDIOT

Celts doing a good job of doubling Dirk, but it's opening up the perimeter for Dallas, and Dirk has the height to see the floor and pass. so well.

Outstanding defense by Johnson results in a Mavs turnover. But the Celts can't capitalize.

Sullinger is just superb at fighting and scoring in a forest of trees on the offensive board.

Sully and Marion have each played 13 minutes. Sully has 7 rebounds and Marion has 6.

Humphrey fought like a bull to get offensive board position, and he draws a foul.

Great long pass combination of four Celts for the Sully layup in transition. That was beautiful basketball, and the last extra pass was the frosting on the cake.

Rondo hit the three, but the Celtics offense is kind of stagnant. Not the best way to close out the second quarter.

Mo Cheeks out as Piston's coach. Most Pistons learned about it via Twitter. Was it Memphis that won a game last night while making only one free throw?

Humphries earned that last jumper. He kept the ball alive to get an additional possession on which he hit the shot.

44-38 at the half, with the Celts shooting 27%. As usual, the opponent is packing the defense in the lane and daring the Celtics to shoot jumpers. Celts eager to jump (no pun intended) at the chance.

Terrible shooting first half, they should be winning this game right now. They have had plenty of opportunities.

No favorite stat at the half today.  The stats are all pretty much underwhelming.  But I do have a favorite stat pattern:

The Celtics lead the Mavs:

• in fast break points, 8-3.

• in points in the paint, 12-8.

• in assists on made field goals: 9-13 versus 6/15.

• in rebounds, 26-23.

But they trail by 6 because they're shot 27% compared with the Mavs' 42%.  Dirk is leading the Mavs with 6-10 field goal shooting.  No Celtic has more than 3 field goals except Rondo (4).

The Celts have to find some way to continue to push the Mavs away from their offensive basket while creating more shots. There are too many slipped picks, too many non-picks, too little fighting down low, too many misses of open shots. The guys I think are playing best are Rondo, Sully and Humphries in that order. Someone else (probably at least two someone elses) has to step up in the second half. Given Dallas' penchant for clogging the lane and letting the Celts shoot from outside, I'd try to get Bayless into a good shooting rhythm and maybe Bradley as well.

Bradley shoots into traffic under the basket again. Sometimes drives me nuts.

I'd like to see more of Wallace in this game. Only 9 minutes so far. He's pretty good at figuring out opponents' weaknesses and capitalizing on them. And, if ever the Celtics needed more energy on the court, it's today.

Oh the humanity! The gas has seeped out of the Hindenberg. Getting outworked. Missing bunnies and wide open jumpers. The Mavs feasted on jumpshooting in the first half and are not taking everything to the hoop. Just watch how their bigs carve out position underneath. Almost every one of their shots is a high-percentage shot. Now the Mavs lead is up to 14 and has been as high as 17.
