Comcast's pregame piece about McHale brought back some great memories. I always thought that an underrated quality of Kevin was the loosey-goosie way he approached the game. Serious on the court, but played with a joie de vivre that was difficult to equal.

Go Celtics!

Holy smoke , our seats are right behind the Rockets bench!  I can tap Kevin McHale if I wanted to get thrown out.

Hi Sam. Yes, I saw that pregame piece on McHale, he lived in Larry's shadow for his entire career

Marcus has got to learn to stop biting when a guy is going for a 3 and he throws his leg out

Boy, Steady Eddie has become the Energizer Bunny. If it were not for him, the Garden might be emptying out about now.

I will hate it if they trade Bass, he has been so steady for them.

That play that Marcus got the foul on is the old
reggie miller play. wade is a great one for it now and ray allen

On that defensive possession, the Celtics formed a perfect ring around the lane. Not one of them was in position to attack the Houston drive. Earlier in the season, they had some luck with collapsing from that formation when the opponents tried to penetrate. Now, nothing happens.

The firt quarter was Bass'.  This quarter is Prince's.  But both quarters have been Houston's.

It is obvious Prince wants out of Boston, he has said he wants to be in a winning situation. That being said, if they can't find a team that wants him, a buyout will be negotiated??

Wow, Crowder hit Zeller with a pass, which bounced off Z and back to Crowder for the little jumper. Talk about accidental offense.

You listen to Tommy, every one thinks he is just a old player who is a homer. He really still has it.

At the half, the Rockets have outrebounded the Celtics (20-13 on the defensive boards), out-assisting the Rockets, 15-6, have fewer turnovers, have made twice as many threes, have more fast break points, more points in the paint, outshooting them 52%-36%). I wonder why the Celts are woefully behind by 18.

No favorite halftime stat today. There's nothing to choose from. The Celts do have a big lead in free throws taken, 9-7. I guess my favorite by default would be that Harden is 3-13. Of course, the rest of the Rockets are 21 for 33 (64%)..

The Garden sounds like a punctured gas balloon. The Celtics look like a punctured gas balloon. I feel like a punctured gas balloon. One of the sleepiest games of the season.

Has anyone else noticed that Zeller may have lost some of that edge that he had acquired? Not aggressive at all at either end.

I really hate the way these teams rely on the 3. Sooner or later it will catch up to these three point shooting teams, and they will come up with a defense against them

C's finally getting through the Houston defense and taking it to the hoop. And the Celtic defense has obviously picked up considerably, especially in protecting the rim.

I think Zeller is trying, teams are just defending him well. He doesn't have those outstanding moves for a crafty center.
