Opening Game @ Cleveland

I lost Boston's opening game against the Cavs in Cleveland. Garnett got into foul trouble and never picked up a groove because of it, despite hitting a clutch shot in the 4th quarter and nailing two huge game-tying free throws with second to spare in the 4th.

While it was a decent team effort (amidst poor shooting and sluggishness), crucial mistakes (fouling Cleveland in OT, i.e. giving them free points and not being more aggressive with Rondo, the leading scorer of the game for Boston) cost me the game. Rondo hit a huge 3 pointer, but couldn't make a second, despite a solid pick that gave him room to fire again.

Clearly, there are some kinks to work out, but I see potential. Hopefully I'll turn in a better performance against the Bobcats at home.
