Boston loses at home

Ray Allen has his best game of the playoffs by far, and the Celtics lose at home for the first time in the playoffs.

I don't think Allen was a ballhog or anything (9-16), Detroit just played extremely well. They shot 49% from the field, 50% from the 3-point line and 87% from the free-throw line. Can't ask for much more than that.

Hamilton was huge, scoring 25 and hitting two big shots in the final minutes of the game to put away the Celtics.

Not looking good, Boston fans. First your Patriots go undefeated in the regular season, only to lose in the Superbowl; now it looks like your Celtics, who won 66 games in the regular season will lose in the conference finals.

Maybe this will teach sports writers to avoid anointing a champion before the season begins.

Well- looks like the Pistons have this series.

Yeah I was saying the Celtics would blow it like the Patriots. Around the same place, top of the league, and lots of great guys.

I'm gonna watch 'em blow

And yet they take one on the road? What have they done with the Celtics? They just made this series more interesting than I thought possible.
