I forgot to write about the 1st quarter, but we looked good after finding our game a few minutes into the quarter. In the second quarter, Gary Neal exploded for a couple threes, as did "native" Matt Bonner. Spurs extended their lead to 15+ pts midway through. The Spurs caused a number of turnovers which allowed the Celtics to get momentum back and cut the lead to 11. Spurs up 59-48 at the half.

Through the 3rd quarter, both teams looked very stagnant and lackadaisical. Spurs weren't hitting their shots, Celtics weren't hitting theirs. No words short of "god awful" can describe the rest of the quarter. Wide open jumpers and layups were missed badly for both teams. Spurs score 9 points in the quarter. Spurs up 68-64, going into the 4th. I'm not going to begin to describe the 4th quarter. Just watch it if you like self harm.
