Let’s go get the Celtics!We almost beat ‘em last time!
Love beating the Celtics. My favorite team to beat!!
It’ll be interesting to see Livinston against Rondo, one of the premier point guards in the league. Hindsight being 20 20, I’ll point out that we drafted Pech over Rondo
While there is no question about it, Rondo is way better than pech, I don't think Rondo is that great of a pg. He is a very good pg. But “premier”? Maybe because of the team he plays on he is. But his lack of a reliable jump shot outside of 10 ft is not premier in this league. And while we could have drafted him, I doubt he would have developed the way he did. I think players (like big baby) can even surprise themselves with what they can do when they have KG giving them that crazy derranged man stare in practice. Lol
Flip Saunders jokingly said if there is any trash talking on Kevin Garnett he will do it
It should be fun to see Blatche-Garnett.
I kinda doubt Blatche will have a great game tonight. As the article points out, KG held him scoreless for the last six minutes of the game (as in when it mattered). I don't think KG will overlook Blatche for the first 42 minutes this time considering there's some semblance of a mini-rivalry between the two.
What Garnett will try to do is score on Blatche and Oberto. Remember he got a big fat ZERO the last time with Blatche and McGee guarding him. Doesn’t anyone remember that? With all the yapping about Garnett getting under Blatche’s skin you don’t understand that it was Blatche that got to Garnett? That started his trash talking because he was frustrated.
Rajon Rondo wins the Red Aurbach award with the presentation at halfcourt pre-game.
Word is that Rasheed is the front runner for the Vin Baker award. Post game presentation in the broom closet.
Garnett still 1/5 from the field…. I recall this happened last time (only it was 0%)…… if we can keep THAT up…
I'm normally completely on the tanking bandwagon But my hatred for the Celtics is so old and visceral that I have no choice but to root for a blowout. Come on Boys!
Finley actually plays? Really? Wow..
I just love how they signed Michael Finley As if they need to get older.
As much as I want the ping pong balls, I love it when those arrogant, a-holey Celtics look like crap.
Guys, this is starting to worry me. We absolutely cannot afford to win this game.
Boston is too old. They are done as far as championships go
Wait, the Wizards are hustling?
The Celtics are taking some horrible shots
Can we make sure Rasheed plays like 36 minutes tonight?
Glen Davis is terrible. JaVale just owned him.
Blatche has also gong by him a few times. I thought he was at least decent?
The Boston crowd’s booing their own team?
Wizards are playing TEAM ball – there is no go to super star…. It works!!!
This is not a happy crowdfd wizards outhustling them
Man, Blatche gets NO love from the refs. They're killing him out there... No calls.
You'd think Boston was the team that was tanking.
Blatche gets fouled by Garnett on the jumper, no call. Blatche takes a clear charge on Rondo... Foul on Blatche.
Celtics are playing like the Wiz and the Wiz are playing like the Celtics
Rasheed: 0-3 from the field, 0-2 from the line
It's Boston Rasheed. I’m sure it wouldn’t be the first time the fans kicked the hell out of one of their own guys
Garnett has followed up his 0-7 performance by going 1-6 so far.
Our best defense is the other team taking bad shots.
Thornton tipped it in for them. Haha “Thornton might be their best shooter this half.”
Heinsohn (the biggest homer ever) is blaming the young refs and promising a great second half.
Let me be the first to say Boston has some classless fans….
The refs allowed the Celtics to crawl back in quite nicely. Some really pathetic officiating down the stretch. Boston might not have scored more than 25 without the stripes taking over.
WTF!!! This is a disaster, we have to hope for a 3rd quarter or 4th quarter collapse.
I don't see the lead lasting but a fun half to watch
KG is chirping at Blatche, but Blatche just gave him the hand. When you’re up 26, what do you have to say?
I'm watching the Celts feed, one of their frontoffice guys was sitting in on the broadcast and he as much as admitted they'd prefer to avoid Orlando if at all possible. Nurse Rivers' substitution patterns are pretty stupid this game, allowing the squad to build a serious cushion.
What happened to the time continuum? Somebody must have opened a singularity near Boston
We promised to take Rasheed back if they let us win
They gave him 3 years right? That’s just comedy right there.
Jeez the Celtics are old and slow
God the Celtics are playing lazy
I don't mean to take anything away from the Wizards But just to keep perspective here – the Celtics are playing like they don’t give a crap.
Tommy Heinsohn has almost completely stopped speaking at this point, but occasionally makes noises like a pair of bellows in great distress.
Blatche owns KG so bad it's not even funny. Either Blatche is just amazing, or KG is just on old dog, or some might consider, a bitch.
Livingston torching Rondo (who is supposed to be an NBA All-Defensive player)…
Why does Sheed ever play? Like, what will it take for Doc to play Shelden Williams over him?
Oh god...the fake crowd noise. Boston should be ashamed of themselves. Larry Bird is rolling around in his grave.
That fake noise is so damn obvious. It's the same pitch, same roar EACH AND EVERY TIME LOL. So pathetic for such a storied franchise.
Celtics have totally gone to their bench
LOL…Well, most of our players except for miller were in the d-league or riding the bench, so we’re equal.
Sheed must have been lost
He was actually in the post.
The best part about the fake crowd noise is when the other team has the ball and scores and it takes a good 3 awkward seconds for the crowd noise to stop.
Lol at KG. How I wish this jackass finished his career without a championship.
Is Doc Rivers out of his **** mind? Boston is down 15 with 1:30 to go and the 2nd unit in the game, and Doc Rivers is calling timeouts to draw up plays.
Wins are great, but tanking the last four games of a lost season to ensure getting the third best odds in the lottery instead of possibly the sixth is not a sin. I’m pretty irritated that we chose now to play like this.
You could tell Blatche wanted this one for redemption. Next up is ATL; watch Blatche take it easy against them just to put the icing on Boston.
