Garnett didn’t have it but neither did his teammates

In response to my own pre-game blog below-Kevin Garnett 16 points and 4 rebounds, Pau Gasol 23 points and 14 rebounds. Game over. If that mismatch continues this will be a 4 game series.

Now Kobe did have 30 points in this 102-89 Lakers win (and it wasn’t that close) but Paul Pierce nearly matched him with 24.

Rondo was nearly a non-factor. That hurts as much as Garnett getting outplayed. Rondo had 3 second half points with just 2 rebounds and 4 assists in that 2nd half. And then their is Ray Allen who got in foul trouble early and basically took himself out of this game.

Game #2 is Sunday night which means the Celtics have 3 days to hear how badly they played and probably hear how bad they are. That cannot be a bad thing if you’re a Celtics fan because you know this group has some pride and tonight that pride was dealt a serious blow. And it was dealt a serious blow by a previously soft Laker team which made the Celtics look soft. Ouch.
