70 wins? For this team?

Weren’t the Celtics supposed to win 70 games this season? What the hell has been going on with them lately? The C’s looked awful again last night down the stretch. Granted it was the second night of a back-to-back, but come on people. Two straight losses to the Hawks and Pacers? This team looks old and slow right now. And since Paul Pierce is playing with a sprained MCL, he’s slower than usual defensively. Anytime Dahntay Jones, a washed-up former Celtic, drops 25 points on you, there’s a serious problem.

The defense, which was supposed to be this team’s calling card, has given up 210 points in the last two games. You’re not going to win many games allowing offensive numbers like that. Going 8-3 out of the gate isn’t bad at all and it certainly could be worse. (I’m looking at you Knicks fans.) But after a solid start to the season, the Celts have lost some of their luster.

I don’t even want to get into what happened to the Bruins last night, so let’s just hope the Pats can pull one out against the Colts tonight to salvage a rather lousy sports weekend around here. Check back later for some analysis on that game.
