Lucky for me, it was my sisters birthday today and I didn't watch the Celtics lose to the Wizards tonight because we were out at dinner.

That being said, I have no game recap. As is evident by the 85-83 score, with the Celtics on the losing side, I didn't miss anything. 

I was keeping track of the score on my phone all through dinner, and with 5 minutes left in the 4th I made my way over to the restaurant bar, to see if the boys in Green could pull out a victory. Wamp! They couldn't. 

Three things I noticed during the 5 minutes I watched: 

1) Nobody in Green could make a shot. 

2) Paul Pierce was fouled, and the ref didn't call it. What a surprise!! 

3) Rondo stripped the ball away from John Wall as the 4th quarter was winding down, and gave the Celtics a chance to win at the buzzer.... But referring back to point number one: Nobody could make a shot. 

Shout out to the fellow Celtics fan I met at the bar, who also left his party to watch the final 5 minutes and who shared in my outrage at the no-call on Paul Pierce. The volume wasn't turned on, but I'm sure Tommy was fuming. 

If you're looking for a more detailed recap of this crappy loss, check this out.

One good thing: Doc Rivers thinks no news is good news. Having heard nothing from Celtics medical staff concerning Shaq's sore right hip, the Coach assumes that the injury isn't too serious and indicated that he would learn more at practice on Monday (source)

The end.
