Celtics Blog: Kevin Garnett Shows Up, But Ray Allen Nowhere To Be Found

Jeff Clark from SB Nation's Celtics Blog gives some quick reaction after the Celtics' Game 3 loss on Tuesday night:

  • I guess Ray used up all his shots in game 2.  0-13 overall, 0-8 from 3.  I wonder how many extra practice shots he takes between games 3 and 4.  2,000?  3,000?
  • Garnett finally showed up.  He learned that you can't go over Gasol, so you have to go through him.  Great to see him back.
  • What can you say about Kobe Bryant?  The C's defended him really well and he still made lots of big shots.
  • 3 instant replays in the final minutes.  That's just odd.

Clark also plays the "if" game looking back:

If Ray hits a few shots, ...if Pierce hits a couple more, ...if the defense makes a couple more stops, ...maybe the comeback would have been completed and we'd have a huge win.  Instead we've got the wind knocked out of our sails.  On to game 4.
