Recap: We can only hope and pray that was rock bottom


If you missed tonight's 96-81 loss to the Detroit Pistons, consider yourself lucky. This was an absolute embarrassment.

The Pistons dominated this game while shooting 38%. How is that possible? The Cs served up 22 turnovers and allowed 42 points in the paint. Detroit had a 46 to 15 advantage in free throws. It seems ridiculous and unjust, but I didn't think the officiating was that bad.

Rajon Rondo quit on his team was ejected for bitching about a non-call and whipping the ball at the official in the 3rd quarter. He could receive a 1 game suspension for his actions.

Paul Pierce (18 points, 6-11 FG) continues to play uninspired basketball. 

Kevin Garnett missed this game because of "personal reasons." Should we cut this team any slack for playing without Garnett and Brandon Bass? 

The lack of effort and intensity stunned me. I expected more from this team following two full days of rest and one intense practice.
