Die another day (24-0)

Well, it had to end sometime, and most of the smart money understood that it would be on this road trip.  Some had circled tonight's game in Boston, knowing that the Celtics are a good team, knowing that Warriors would be tired, and knowing that the Boston crowd would relish the opportunity to cheer their team on to a streak-ending victory.

As if further motivation were needed, the Celtics now employ David Lee, the former All-Star who last year:
  • Played well for the Warriors
  • Lost his starting job anyway as Draymond Greene and Harrison Barnes took huge leaps forward
  • Engaged in playoff heroics
  • Brought baked goods
  • Was asked to leave anyway

So, the stage was set.  And, the Warriors blew their lead.  And then they refused - after four quarters of regulation and two overtime periods - to lose:

24-0 now.

Milwaukee tomorrow night.

Not to look ahead or anything, but if the streak continues, game 29 is in Oakland.  On Christmas Day.  Against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

That could, possibly, be an interesting contest.
