I really liked the conspiracy theory that the Celtics gave this game away so that the Bucks would win because they want to face them in the playoffs. How else do you explain the Champs playing like a D-League team?
Umm, let me think, L.
Without Garnett we have a legit shot at these guys. Powe went off on the Grizz yesterday but he's not good enough to back that up Imo, particularly not against our outstanding defensive PF in Char.... Nevermind. CV normally bounces back after mailing one in so he's due a good game. Seriously though, contain Ray and Pierce to only solid nights and this is a W, let one or both go off and it's a L.
What's the deal with Ridnour is that injury still affecting his shot?
Being terrible at basketball might have more to do with it, really.
I always look forward to seeing my favorite player play and still hold out hope that Ray will finish his career as a Buck.
Don't expect the Celtics to show all their cards as they will probably be matched up with the Bucks in the playoffs.
Umm, even if we do make the playoffs (not likely) why should the Celtics care about showing all their cards? They're way more talented and they're missing their best player.
Eddie House's status for tomorrow is unknown. He missed practice today because of a family issue.
Well if he's out, it's a win for sure.
Rondo is playing. Garnett, Scalabrine, Big Baby, and Tony Allen are out.
Scalabrine is out?? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! He gives all of us hope that we can one day play in the NBA.
4 minutes in we're winning the turnover battle 4-1 but we're losing. Wow
I sometimes wonder if Jim Chones is actually watching the game. Chones: "That shot looked good from Alexander until he let it go." Umm, what?
Villanueva's killing the Bucks right now.
LUKE KNOCKS THE BALL RIGHT IN OFF PIERCE FACE, PIERCE JUST ABOUT GOES INTO A COMA OVER IT AND CRIES NO FOUL? I WAS LAUGHIN MY ASS OFF, HECK IM STILL LAUGHING, COULDNT HAPPEN TO A NICER GUY.
If we win this game it is because of RJ. I've never seen him play this hard in a Bucks uniform.
Is it just me or has our D stepped up tonight?
Doc Rivers complains that LRMAM is inside the arc on the offensive foul. Replay shows LRMAM is at least a foot outside the arc. Conclusion: The Celtics like to complain a lot.
That was some of the worst clock management to end the half that I've ever seen and it didn't come from the Bucks!
If he have Bogut this game would be already over
These Celtics are so overrated
They are missing KG too.
Damn Perkins is murdering us.
Had to laugh at Chones. Perkins is a physical specimin and angry 100% of the time
Pierce just got a major star call. He put his head down and literally ran over Villanueva and no call. Horrible non-call.
Man just how much do the refs want Boston to win this? A couple of disgraceful calls here
Pierce just got another star call. Venezuela didn't even touch him.
Looking at that replay, CV did NOT touch Pierce. **** refs doing their very best to help Stern's boys.
Perkins with a career high
How can a guy whose main attribute as a basketball player is looking constipated have 26 points?
I would not be surprised if the Celtics are not throwing this game to the Bucks so they can face them in the first round and sweep them.
I would not mind to see the worse best team make the 8th seed so I can sweep them IF I WAS THE CELTICS... Wouldn't you rather face the Bucks the the Bulls or some other team in the first round?
Sure you would! Boston conceded this game....and fixed it so the Bucks could win! How do you beat the world champs shooting 32%????????????????????? THE CELTICS FIXED THIS...
We are going to have to get the 7th seed to play Boston. Celtics will never get the first seed. Cavs are too strong and Celtics aren't as good as them.
So how many of you are still sure that we will be swept in first round? We just win against elite team. Sure then played without Garnett but we played without Bogut. And this same Boston without Garnett won against Cavs few days ago.
The Bucks could win a playoff game against any team in the East, but I don't think they could win a series.
Chones sucks. I hate listening to him.
I hate to say it but I'd almost rather the Celtics announcers. Scratch that... No I wouldn't
The Celtics played absolutely terrible today. Our bench played the entire fourth quarter and we still won. I wouldn't say we played good defense, it was mostly the Celtics missing wide open shots. That won't happen again.
Outstanding defensive effort. The Celtics shot poorly (especially Pierce, Allen and Rondo) and the Bucks forced them into a season high in turnovers. The Celtics won't want to face the Bucks in the playoffs now.
Lucky win....means nothing. A team like the Bucks can shoot 32% and you can beat the World Champs!? That is absurd....obviously this game was not a priority to them.
Why can't we play with this kind of defensive effort every game?
We did play good defense today mixed with the Celtics missing shots they normally don't. Now the C's can take that bus trip south and take their frustrations out on the Bulls Tuesday.
