Not the win they were looking for
The Celtics were involved in three of the 10 games nominated, including Rajon Rondo's triple-double performance in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The other two games were losses to the Los Angeles Lakers and fans voted the most painful of any defeat during the 2009-10 season as the league's top battle.
Game 7 of the NBA Finals, an 83-79 triumph for the Lakers, took the top spot in the poll. Los Angeles' regular-season 90-89 triumph at the TD Garden on Jan. 31, landed at No. 4, while Rondo's exploits against the Cavaliers checked in at No. 5.
