The Celtics were simply out-rebounded and didn't play interior defense. Salim Stoudamire and Zaza Pachulia played well and Al Harrington hit everything. The Celtics blew this game. Good win for Atlanta.
They haven't been getting blown out all the time, though. They have some talent, but among other things, seem much too young to win many close ones. I tell you, though, Zaza is looking like one of the shrewdest FA signings of the summer. A 21 year old leading the NBA in offensive rebounds/game and I think tonight was his sixth double/double of the season. It's true they need to play him big minutes out of neccesity, but he's been a beast so far.
