Celtics Vs. Pacers: Pierce, Dooling, Bass, Allen Postgame Interviews

BOSTON - In the words of Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers, his team and the Indiana Pacers both "set offense back about fifty years" in the C's 87-74 loss to the Pacers on Friday night at TD Garden. Boston shot 39.4 percent from the floor (26-of-66) after tying a franchise low with 25 first-half points. Meanwhile, Indiana shot 40.5 percent (32-for-79) in victory.

"We're 0-fer against quality opponents," said Celtics head coach Doc Rivers after the game. "But again, it's eight games into the year, so I'm not going to overdo that."

Eight games or not, it was still an ugly performance from the Celtics. The long bright spot on offense for Boston was (surprise!) Ray Allen, who lead all scorers with 23 points on 7-of-11 shooting. Meanwhile, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Jermaine O'Neal and Brandon Bass did nothing to help the cause on the offensive end.

Pierce, Allen, Bass and Keyon Dooling spoke with reporters after the game. Audio is below.
