The Celtics just didn't seem to have it in them on Saturday night to keep up with what the Chicago Bulls were throwing at them. While their offence did not look too bad, their defence was all over the place.

In the first quarter, led by Al Horford, the Celtics started the game with a 7-0 run and finished with a 33-28 lead. However, this didn't last very long as Chicago started the second quarter with a 10-0 burst and took a 64-51 lead at halftime.

Somewhere during the second quarter, the Celtics just gave up and their intensity on the defensive end of the court dropped alarmingly.
