Celtics Blog: 'Where Do We Begin?'

About the only good thing to come out of Game 6 for Boston fans is that there is still a Game 7. Little, if anything, went right for the Celtics in a 89-67 trouncing at the hands of the Lakers Tuesday night.

Some random thoughts from our friends at Celtics Blog, SB Nation's Boston blog:

The Lakers clearly came out with a more aggressive mentality, and promptly owned the first half. Some first half stats to consider...LA led 51-31; LA out-rebounded Boston 30-13; LA's bench out-scored Boston's 15-0.

This one, unfortunately, seemed to come down to effort and aggression. The Lakers presented more of both and never took their foot off the gas pedal.

It was kind of ridiculous how many dunks and layups the Celtics missed over the course of the game. Many makeable shots went awry, which only hindered the Celtics' chances of cutting into LA's lead.

Heading into the fourth quarter, only Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Rajon Rondo had scored.
