The Celtics scored seven points in the first quarter. That is not a typo. S-E-V-E-N points in the first quarter. That is an NBA playoff record by the way for lowest points scored in a quarter. The Hawks didn't even play well but it didn't matter. The Celtics looked horrific all game. Marcus Smart flopped around like an absolute moron. Jae Crowder and Isaiah Thomas played brutal and missed pretty much every shot they took.
I mean nothing else needs to be said. The Celtics look absolutely dead and are now 0-6 under head coach Brad Stevens in the playoffs. Hard to blame the coach for that, but it should now be clear that the Celtics are much farther away than green-teamers thought they were to being a contending team. Isaiah Thomas is not an elite player and NOBODY on this roster is untouchable. Just a brutal performance by the Boston Celtics in a game they really needed to win. Sweet Jesus on a trampoline that was some bad basketball.
