Celtics lose at home :'(

Celtics lose at home :'(

Alright, well this is disappointing.

You know how the Boston Celtics play 82 games a year or whatever it is? Well, it took 24 games into the season for them to lose at home. Yeah... it's disappointing, but you know what? It happens...

That's right. The Celtics lost to the Philadelphia 76ers. Going into this one, we knew it was going to be a tough game -- which made it a little nerve wracking. At the same time though, it's impressive it took the Celtics this lone to drop one home game. It shows they've been doing a lot right -- which is really nice to see....

Now some people might be concerned that the Celtics lost back-to-back games. It's unfortunate, yeah, but it happens. They're 17-7. That's good enough for first place in the NBA's Eastern Conference. Also, we have to give Kemba Walker some serious credit for dropping 29 points in the loss. A loss is never good, but he was good in the loss -- and I think that's a fair statement to make.

Not to make excuses for the Celtics but damn, Joel Embiid. Now that is a basketball player. The guy put up 38 points against the Celtics, who were trying everything to contain him. It turned out, however, that he was too much for both Enes Kanter and Daniel Theis. Neither of them could make the big stop on him...

Also, shoutout to Celtics fans. There was over 19,000 of them at Thursday night's game despite the Garden only having a capacity of around 18,600. So there were people there who weren't even in seats. Now that is impressive. That takes dedication.

So what's next for the C's? Hopefully a win. If they get on a three game losing streak, we are really going to have to get on their case....
