Recently I asked whether the Celtics' current troubles meant anything. After watching their game last night against Cleveland, I can assure you that their slide is weighing heavily on them from the Coach right on down to Scalabrine.
People, with around 7 minutes to go in the game and down 11 points, they started fouling Ben Wallace away from the ball.
Yes, they employed the Hack-A-Ben.
The defending champs.
The proud warriors.
The Ubuntu dudes.
If you look in a dictionary under panic, there will be a picture of Eddie House humping Ben Wallace in the backcourt.
I was LOL-ing away. The best part was that Mike Brown just left Wallace in the game, Ben kept making 1 of 2, the Cavs D kept getting stops and the lead widened to 19. Then Doc Rivers pulled his big three, but the scrubinis still were going with the Hack-A-Ben!
This is mighty good stuff.
