The Celtics fell in Philadelphia Monday night, 113-108, despite the efforts of Chris Johnson, whose 3-pointer was seemingly good and tied the game with 0.9 second left in regulation. Referees ruled that Johnson's foot was out of bounds, however, and the basket was negated, giving the Celtics their 56th loss of the season.
Kelly Olynyk led the Green with 28 points.
What they'll be saying: For Boston fans in the tank-happy crowd, Monday night went great for the Celtics. The C's fell to 25-56 on the season and the Lakers - who were tied with the C's for the fifth worst record in the NBA heading into Monday night - beat the Jazz, 119-104. Los Angeles is now 26-55 on the year. Only Orlando, Utah, Philadelphia and Milwaukee currently have worse records than the Celtics.
