Magic victimize Celtics' defense with third-quarter run


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com
Posted Sunday February 7, 2010 7:15PM

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- For the first time all season, the Boston Celtics had a healthy roster. This was supposed to be when they shook whatever creature from their backs and played like the contender they are assumed to be. This was when things were meant to change.

Only, in losing their third game to the Orlando Magic, 96-89 despite outscoring them in three quarters, they didn't. Things just got worse.

For a while, the improvement was there. The Celtics played one of their best first halves of basketball to take an 11-point lead, holding the Magic below 40 percent shooting. But then, true to the form they've shown over and over again since an 11-game winning streak in December, the Celtics turned in a horrific third quarter, watching helplessly as Orlando mounted a 25-2 run over the final 7:16 to take a commanding, and lasting, lead. The final tally of that quarter: 36-11.

"That's the game right there," said a solemn Kevin Garnett. "We just didn't get it done. We're better than 11 points.

"For some reason third quarters have been kicking our behinds this year. We just got to get better at it, period."

Boston coach Doc Rivers was more worried about the other side of the ball.

"We were getting what we deserved. I thought we played like crap," Rivers said. "Everything we did in the first half, we decided not to do."

Strong shows on pick-and-rolls, helping on defense, talking, closing out on shooters behind the arc; those are the foundations of the Celtics' defense, and those are all the things they didn't do in the third quarter. The Magic shot 70 percent in the quarter, missing a mere three field goals while holding Boston without a bucket after a Rajon Rondo triple.

"That was the best quarter we've played since I've been here," Magic coach Stan van Gundy said.

After Rondo's three put Boston up 60-51, Van Gundy, fresh off watching his team blow a 21-point lead to the Washington Wizards, chose to leave Dwight Howard in the game with four fouls.

"Oh, man, I was so happy to be on the floor you guys have no idea," Howard said.

But Howard, even with 16 points, 13 boards and more than the two blocks credited to him on the stat sheet, didn't beat the Celtics. Working the ball around the perimeter, Orlando hit four threes as part of their 25-2 quarter-ending run, nailing three in a row over a span of 1:16.

Then, after opening the fourth with another pair from downtown, the Magic began to milk the clock, never allowing the Celtics to get closer than a two-possession margin.

"We came out in the second half with a lot of energy," Howard said. "We got stops and then we came down and hit some shots, and after that we just kept rolling."

The big story for Boston before the game was getting Paul Pierce and Marquis Daniels back from injuries. Pierce was hardly a specter of himself, scoring 13 points on 12 shots with no assists while at times getting enough lift on his jumper to make set-shot stalwart Andre Miller proud.

For his part, Daniels looked better than expected as he took advantage of a matchup with J.J. Redick, leading Boston's bench to an 18-point first half. But, even with a full stable of bodies in tow, the bench collapsed on itself along with the rest of the team.

"I don't want any excuses," Rivers said. "I didn't want to hear them when we were injured. I definitely don't want to hear them now."

The Celtics are now 0-6 at home to teams that have at least 31 wins over the course of the season, and are 1-7 against the Magic and the Atlanta Hawks, with a home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers sprinkled in. Unfortunately, but officially, they have earned the label of a team that cannot hold second-half leads, nor sustain effective play for all four quarters.

"One of the guys said, 'We're better than Orlando,'" Rivers said. "And I said, 'No, you're not.'

"Orlando is better than us right now. Atlanta's better than us. L.A.'s better than us. Those are the teams that have beaten us. That doesn't mean that we can't be better than them at some point, but right now, those teams are better."
