Herald Celtics lose homecourt, series leadPistons steal homeLight finally on for RayFL's Take: I was so happy to see Ray finally hit some jumpers and you could just see the confidence surging back after that first one. Hopefully he will bring that confidence to Detroit. They will need him to score in those games. Defense rests in defeat FL's Take: The defense completely broke down for stretches, especially in the 4th quarter. The Celtics have to keep up their defensive intensity because the Pistons sure will.

Numbers left Garnett numbPistons stuck it to the bench FL's Take: The Celtics bench didn't show up in this one. Maybe it was Doc inserting players who don't normally play and who are a bit rusty.

Some of the games, the refs took them out, but this game was actually officiated pretty evenly. The Celtics committed foolish fouls because they weren't focused. They had defensive lapses because they weren't focused. They gave this one away.
