The Wall Street Journal (I know, can you believe it?) had a piece discussing the teams that perform best after a time out. The Celtics were second behind Portland.
More interesting to me, however, was the fact that the Celtics are only 7-6 in games decided by three points or less.
The Lakers were 5-8.
So I'm not sure what this tells us.
Still, heading into the playoffs, I don't like the fact that we win almost as many close games as we lose.
