Tough Night In Toronto [VIDEO]
Maybe it was the Toronto defense. Maybe all the Boston injuries are catching up to them. Whatever it was, the Boston Celtics did not look like the Boston Celtics last night in a 96-78 loss to the Raptors.
It means the C's are likely to be the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference. The Celts trail the Raptors by three games with just four games left on the schedule.
The second quarter was simply miserable for Boston. Nine turnovers led to 17 Toronto points and the game was over.
The Celtics shot just 3-for-22 on three-pointers. They were 25-of-75 from the field.
DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 16.
Marcus Morris had 21 and Greg Monroe had 17 for the Celtics.
Boston is now 53-25 and play Chicago, Atlanta, Washington and Brooklyn down the stretch to end the regular season.
