I now live in Italy. I'm a retired pilot--Military, Pan Am and United. Watch the Celts on SKY . It was great to see Allen have a banner night.
Good story. I was a Courant/ Torrington Reg./Waterbury Repub. paperboy back in my youth in Torrington and a Celtic fan always. Played basketball at the Gunnery School in Wash. CT !947--50. And until I was 55 years old.
Got your story off of your web site here in Rome.

If the Celtics want the season to go on, they must use up at least 16 seconds offensively off the clock when they have a lead – they practically gave the game back to the pistons in the third quarter when they rushed down to put up ill-advised quick poorly chosen shots. When you are in the lead, at home, you milk the clock. Especially with a big (15) lead!
When you use up 16 seconds you still have another 8 to finish the deal… it’s not as iffy as it might sound to some of you – just think, down 15 points in the third, the Pistons needed as much clock as possible - and the Celtics cooperated magnanimously!
Set plays bring high percentage shots – not the all-too-quick lame ducks they were throwing up with a 15 point lead in the second half…heart wrenching win – but a win!
