Boston 125.6 63.5 18.9 34.4 20.9

I'll admit it, I turned this crap off during the third quarter.  I couldn't watch Mike James, Caron Butler and Juan Dixon get beat off the dribble forever. 

It's nice that Javaris Crittenton got some nice burn, but why must we give preferential treatment to other vets instead of playing guys like Nick Young and JaVale McGee more?  Like, Mike James and Juan Dixon could not have been any worse tonight (Juan was great in garbage time, terrible in the second quarter), and what point is there to playing Etan Thomas a ton of minutes? 

Add that to the FanShots below, and I'm right back to being depressed about the state of this squad. 

Nothing more to say.
