These comments are definitely more fun to gather when we win. I hope the Cavs fins enjoyed this blowout because they aren't likely to see another one. Next time these two teams meet, the Celtics will remember this and the behavior of the Cavs players. There was the usual hatred for the Celtics as a team and individual players. It is always amazing to read the comments where fans used to love KG or Ray but now that they are Celtics they hate them. They didn't have Tommy to bash in this one, so they took their venom out on Jon Barry. Anyway, here are the comments from the other side. File these away just as the Celtics are filing the Cavs' players reactions. Payback will come.
Simple really. Contain Rondo, stay on top of Ray Allen and Eddie House, don't turn the ball over,hit open shots, and we win. We should win this game. We will win this game.
it's all about shutting down the facilitator in Rondo. If he has a big game, Celtics will win big. Last outing at the Q he was put in his place and the green team suffered for it, I'd like to see a repeat performance. Oh, and can we please keep Big Baby and Perkins' ego in check this go 'round? Keep them humble and not give either of them a chance to make easy buckets in the key. I have no fear that Lebron will shut down Pierce again, so let's put all the pressure on Ray Allen to beat us. I don't think he'll be up to the task.
Without KG, this should really be a pretty simple game. However, I said the same thing last time we played them and lost. We've gotta establish Z inside, and work the slashing lanes. Without KG, we should really be able to score some solid points in the paint.
The Celtics have nothing to play for in terms of playoff seeding. I'll be curious to see if it affects the Celtics rotation. They can now rest players freely, or bring back their injured players, for their last 3 games with no consequences on seeding. They may "want" to win, but they don't "have" to win. We'll see if that brings out a looser/better team or one that could care less.
A win against the Celtics at home really isn't a confidence booster if you ask me. We already have all the confidence in the world.
Agree with the people saying that the Celtics will probably not play hard. The only real thing they had to worry about was securing the 2nd seed, and they basically have that. Seeing how most of them are prone to injury, I think Doc would probably want to sit the starters out for a lot of the game.
I'm sure Doc Rivers will pull the "protect Celtics history" card in regards to the home court record.
Whiny Celtics journalists are pre-complaining about the refs.
Complaining before the game, complaining during, and soon to be complaining after the game... that's Boston for you
I want us to come out and stomp them, I don't care if all of the "Big 3" is playing or not. Paul Pierce = Garbage
I just want to come out and STOMP their asses into the ground. I want the Celtics to know that getting a win in our house is never going to come easy for them.
Really no conceivable way the Cavs lose this one today. Their only home loss of the season was a big fluke and I don't see them repeating it against the Celtics.
Go Cavs wipe the smirk off Pierce's mug
RONDO TRYIED TO FLOP
Uh oh...the calls aren't going there way
Hahahaha marbury on the bench makes me laugh
Mo is defending Rondo as well as I've seen the little dude defended.
Joe smith vs Mikki more is real satisfactory
We just shut down Rondo when we're at home... And that's the biggest key
I'm sorry, but Mikki Moore is terrible...If that's even how you spell Mikki, I forget.. Inside Joe Smith's mind: "I think I picked the right team to join."
31-9. Boston! Would you like make some excuses?
I like how they were basically making excuses before the game about Garnett and how it's amazing how they have won 60 games and Garnett being out for 22 games. The Celtics are a bunch of ****.
Paul Pierce looks like a sloth... You guys see that chick with red hair on the benc...........oh wait its Scalabrine.
Stephon marbury and mikki Moore on the floor: are we playing the Celtics or the 2004 Knicks?
Boston looks lost w/o KG and Powe.
PEIRCE LOOKS EXHAUSTED AND LIKE HE IS GIVEn up the ghost
Marbury is in? Lol...failure is afoot!
In those last few seconds, we've just seen why Smith is 12385748901 times better than Moore... Joe Smith is playing better and better with every game. By the time the playoffs rollout around, he will be unstoppable.
Cavs are owning on the glass right now at 23-8.
I really hope we win by 60 today. I freakin knew if we started winnin doc was gonna pull starters so he could say he was restin starters
I'm surprised at how uninspired the Celts are playing today. They are much better than this.
Celtic Nation must be groaning over how their team has declined within one season. They can't be looking forward to the next few years. I wonder what Ainge will try to do as he stands pat?
OMG JVG's HAVING A KOBE LOVE FEST DURING A CAVS GAME!!!!
I hate when games get like this because the refs become very biased towards the losing team.
I HATE Paul Pierce
I used to love ray Allen, just love him. Was one of my favorite players. Absolutely hate him now.
14-0 hurts no matter how much you’re up. Yah, if this turns into a game at all I will be upset.
I hate peepee's shooting form. He shoots the ball like the old man that's always at the rec.
We knew the Celtics would go on a run but we just have to come back with intensity and close the game out. So who wants to bet Jon Berry says we aren't an elite team because we couldn't hold the 30 point lead?
C's certainly don't appear to want to protect their legacy.. & the unispired play confirms it. Clevelands WILL has destroyed em somethin aweful and their Coach knows it.
This edition of the Celtics doesn't have the spirit of the classic teams from the '60s, '70s, and '80s. They're finally being exposed as the pretenders they are.
They are way better than thev'e showed but the CAVS have stomped any hope for the immediate future.lol Celtic brass will become witnesses..... They do seem to be pretender's wow @ the World Champs..
I'd be surprised if the Celts didn't play better in the rest of the season and the playoffs to make up for not coming to play today. It's nice to see they lost their swagger, though
Wow they are calling some BS calls to try and make this closer than it should be
We went from getting all the calls to getting no calls
Ainge will likely wring his hands as he keeps his team together to satisfy fans and conventional thinking, saying he can't bring in young new talent.
Here come the refs lettin the cry babies back in it
Maybe we are up by 20 because Wally hasn't stepped on the floor.
Wally not on the floor has helped. Maybe he should not play more often.
Textbook display on how to destroy the will of a team
Pierce beat LBJ twice and and missed the lay up
Yeah Celtics nice run your only down by 25 now
Allen: 1-7 And yet, Boston fans will argue that Allen isn't effected by our defense. It's because he's just in a slump (as he always seems to be when we play).
This game isnt even worth watching now.. The Celtics just look pathetic..
RAY ALLEN should be suspended for that..
I'm glad ray didn't get tossed. Let his old ass play in a blow out.
Andy just puts his hands up, ray Allen looked so ticked off
RAY ALLEN IS A JOKE!!
The Celtics are the cheapest, dirtiest team I can think of.
I've lost pretty much all respect for Allen after that...I really thought he had his head on straighter than that. If Andy would've fell to the ground and acted a bit when Ray Allen did that....Ray Allen probably would've been ejected...
Man RONDO IS WAY WORST THEN I THOUGHT HE WAS...I MEAN STRAIGHT GARBAGE
Ray Allen is a classless piece of @#$% !!!!!!
All I know is that Ray Allen better guard his jaw next time he drives
Ray Allen is going to get suspended for that no doubt about that. That counts as a punch being thrown
I shall remember this as the Boston tea bag party.
Eddie house has a very ugly release to his shot. Its like a combination between Matt bonner and roger mason
Play to win every game and let the rest of the league know that they can't beat the Cavs at home
You guys know Powe and Garnett didn't play right?
2 pts away from FREE CHALUPAS!!
Was LBJ giving someone the finger right there?
I love when the drama of a game is about whether the Cavs will win by 40 or whether their opponent will manage to cut it under 30. Especially vs. Boston.
What other team do u know that have players that take charges when they up by 32
Marbury reminds me of the lucky Charms Cereal guy wearing all that Green
Okay, so we're ridiculously good at home.. Our key against the Celtics at home is the way we defend Rondo.. He is absolutely ineffective in our building..Almost looks like Smush Parker out there.
When delonte west is on the floor the cavs are +36
Doc is still motivating and inspiring away... And the Celtics are still down by 30+ points
Only Wally could visciously block a shot one play and then fall down like a drunken sailor the next.. Pierce look like he wanna cry
I hope they enjoyed their stay in The Q, I'm not too sure they'll be back again this year...
BREAKING NEWS.......Jon Barry says the Celtics are still better than us. Lol
Jon Barry just said on SportsCenter that with a healthy KG that the Celtics are the team to beat in the East, regardless of what the Cavs have done. I really hope we shut that @$$hole up and win ourselves a championship.
CLEVELAND CAVALIERS 2009 NBA CHAMPIONS!!!
Careful guys, we still havnt won a game in the postseason. I doubt the celdicks took this game seriously
