Celts suffer from lack of intensity as Wizards walk with win


By Couper Moorhead, for NBA.com

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- In seven second-quarter minutes, the Boston Celtics had barely matched the second-inning output of the Washington Nationals, much less been anywhere near the Washington Wizards.

That about sums up this embarrassment of an effort from Boston, which at one point trailed 47-19, eventually losing 106-96 -- and that's after Nate Robinson scored 11 points over the span of 26 seconds in the final minute.

The Celtics made a late run, but the Wizards maintained their aggressiveness throughout, persevering on the strength of 31 points and 11 boards from Andray Blatche and 25 points and seven assists from Shaun Livingston -- whose career was nearly ended by a devastating knee injury in 2007.

"I started getting a little nervous, but I also know that Shaun is beginning to come back into his own as a great point guard," Blatche said. "He calmed everybody down and took control of the game."

The loss was a microcosm of the past three months, as the Celtics, no matter how their offense was going, just couldn't complete defensive possessions. Offensive rebounds (10), losing loose balls, forgetting the final rotation as the shot clock wound down, all these things killed Boston to the point that even a 13-point, seven assist performance from Rajon Rondo in the second half was rendered useless.

For the sixth consecutive game, the Celtics allowed more than 100 points. And this is not a case where switching to pace-adjusted statistics would make things prettier.

"I don't think we really played with any toughness against this Washington Wizards team that has been struggling all year long," Paul Pierce said. "There's really no excuse for it. When you say playing with toughness, a lot of things come along with that, loose balls, having energy, a sense of urgency."

That sense of urgency might be the greatest concern on Boston's side looking ahead to the playoffs in that there is a complete lack of it. They still flash the occasional elite-level stretches, but nothing has been sustained.

Washington earned this, though, just as most teams that have come into TD Garden smelling blood have done. The Wizards worked some masterful first-half possessions, finishing with 18 assists on 22 field goals before the break while holding Boston to 30 percent shooting.

Last time the Wizards were in town, they played just as well -- through three quarters. With Kevin Garnett getting in the head of Andray Blatche, the Wizards blew that game in the fourth quarter. Tonight, there was no fear.

"We've grown from that, there's no question," Washington coach Flip Saunders said. "Our guys could've said, 'Hey, just play [the season] out,' but they're not. They're playing with a lot of fire."

Though Rivers blamed himself for giving the team a day off, the aforementioned problems are related to effort and focus -- problems that have present in both wins and losses. The fans have noticed, and have given notice with boos that are slowly losing shock value.

"It doesn't help when the boos happen," Garnett said. "But we are a group of veterans and we are a group that is a real team, we aren't fair weather. So when that occurs we all just get together and say we just have to grind this out. Through any type of adversity you just grip up and come together and I think thats when your bond comes.

"And it's very much needed at this point."

The Celtics have now lost 16 games at home, more than double what any of the three teams above them in the Eastern Conference standings have suffered. They are now a game behind the Atlanta Hawks for the third seed, which means staring right down the barrel of a second-round matchup with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
