Recap: Hornets take a steamy dump all over the Cs


The Celtics were out-played, out-muscled and out-hustled tonight by the New Orleans Hornets.

With this being the 3rd road game in 4 nights, I expected the Celtics to play lethargic and sloppy. But I did not expect them to be dominated. 

It's terrifying to think we may see more efforts like this one. I'm not prepared to jump to any conclusions about the season, but I'm scared. 

Jermaine O'Neal (2 points, 1-6 FG, 6 rebounds) is decomposing before our very eyes. He's incapable of scoring no matter how close he's to the rim. I'm not kidding when I say Greg Stiemsma (6 blocks, 4 rebounds) should be this team's starting center.  

I don't want to discuss Kevin Garnett (8 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists). It hurts too much.
