The rest of the story on Jason Terry is that he will be sidelined for the rest of the season with a bad knee. Now Humph hits a patented jumper and Anthony gets a traffic rebound at the other end. And Humph stuffs a Wallace miss. Celts trail by only 6.

The Kings are pushing the ball down low and sending it back toward the foul line for easy jumpers.

McLemore layup blocked by Joel Anthony.

Johnson rested for two minutes, came back, and stripped a King, but another Celt fouled the guy.

Now Jeff fakes and travels.  I hope he's screwed up in the head.  Otherwise, he must have a crippling disease.  He's 0-8 with 3-4 from the line and 2 TO. Now he finally hits a turnaround jumper.

Bayless hits a perimeter jumper in Thomas' face. Humph is doing a nice job on Cousins. Now a 7-0 run by the Celts on a 3 by Green.

Bayless shoots quickly to get a 2 for 1 and is rewarded by 2 freebies. Misses the fist, hits the second.

Johnson just runs down Thomas from behind for the steal. This kid is flat out all effort. And the Celts trail by only 51-43 at halftime. Dboss will be happy with Anthony's job tonight. Joel is doing a pretty decent job of protecting the rim.

My favorite halftime stat: Kings with zero offensive boards.

Jeff Green is 3-13 but is leading the Celts with 10 points and 4 rebounds. Pretty anemic stuff.

At the half, in 9 minutes, Joel Anthony has 2 points, 4 offensive boards, 2 defensive boards, and a block. In 8 minutes, Kelly Olynyk has 0 points, 0 offensive boards, 2 defensive boards, and no blocks. Not a huge difference (except in rebounds) but Anthony has stood his ground under the defensive basket. He has stymied Cousins on several occasions whereas the Kings have been equal opportunity perpetrators in blowing by Kelly.

Dave Cowens thinks that, if the Celts can hit some shots, they'll win this game because he thinks Sacramento has poor body language and isn't trying out there. I hope he's right.

Green and Bass are a combined 4-19.  Brad says Wallace is playing with back spasms and he (Brad) is pleased to be behind by only 10.  He concurs with Dave Cowens that the Celts just need to hit shots.  They certainly have taken plenty of them (46) at the half.

Bayless, not Pressey, starting the 2nd half. Bayless penetrates and misses, but Humph is there to tip it in. Celts trail by only 6.

Thompson just had a clear path to the basket. On the way, he passed Jeff Green, who didn't move a muscle.

Kings piling up some fouls in the third. Drive, Celts.
Wallace pushes his way in for a hoop.
Humph ties up Cousins and Cousins misses. Celts down 4 with the ball. Green is fouled shooting. I like it—they're going to the hoop.

Bass picks off a pass thrown behind him, recovers, hits a jumper.

Now Green is fouled while shooting. Hit in the eye again. Goes 0-2 and Celts trail by 3.

Gay hits a 3 and Steady Eddie comes right back with a jumper. Landry hits a jumper. Humph hits a jumper. There must be a trampoline down there.

Bass just skied to foil an alley-oop.  But Bayless misses on a long fallaway to launch a Kings breakaway.  Not the shot we were looking for Jerryd.  Celts trail by 8, and I hope Brad's preaching control to Bayless in the huddle.

After shooting in the low 20s first half, the Celts are now shooting 37%; so they're hitting their shots.  But so are the Kings, who lead by 10.  Steady Eddie drives for nice lefty layup.

And, on a great outlet pass by Humph, Bayless has a breakaway.  Then Bayless comes back and deflects a Kings pass.  Out of bounds Celtics.

Jeff threw up a prayer—but a short one that went in, and the Celts' deficit is only 4.

Another steal by Bayless, but Wallace throws a laser out of bounds.

Thomas hits a floater among four Celtics. And Jeff answers with a three.

C'mon Kelly. Thomas just hit one a foot away from you, and you didn't even put up your hand.

Steady Eddie now has 12 points, and the Celts trail by 3.  Landry hit a jumper as Kelly gave up on the play.  And Jeff's hit while shooting a jumper.  His free throwing is off tonight.  But he hits one, and the Celts once again trail by 4 with 1:02 left in the third.  But now Kelly gets confused on a double team and is tied up.  Gets the tip, but Johnson misses a three.  Outlaw hits a three.  He seems to rain threes every time he plays the Celtics.  Jeff nearly banked in a mid-court shot at the buzzer, but that shot was better than most of the Celts' shots in the first half.  Celts trail by 7 entering the 4th quarter.

At least the Celts are now shooting 40% for the night. Which means they must have shot at least 50% in the third quarter.

Come on guys, You can beat this team.
