It sure didn't take long for the Nets fans to become arrogant. I still say that the refs allowing them to be so physical while calling everything on the Celtics in the first half was the reason for the frustrations boiling over. Interesting that Nets fans felt that their players were completely innocent. They were pretty obsessed with Rondo's streak. One even had something about it in his sig. Of course there are the complaints about Tommy and there's the obligatory wheelchair comment. This sure sets up an interesting Christmas matchup. Maybe that was the refs' objective in that first half all along. Enjoy today's comments...
This would be HUGE if we were able to pull it off. Beating the Clippers Knicks and the Celtics in Boston (this time with Rondo so there wouldn't be any excuses)and there's no way anyone can question how legit we are.
This should be a good game... The Celtics' fans are really annoying and dismissive as if they're the best team in the East.
Wait they have Rondo this time.....we lose by 20 easily.
That statement is laughable.
The Celtics don't have 39 year old Jason Kidd so we should win this easily.
How the hell are they going to blow us out with Rondo if they couldn't even get past Orlando without overtime?
We are head and shoulders above them right now and the fact they are acting so entitled with the way they are playing for a so called "Atlantic Division leader" like they boasted and bragged about shows their ignorance and stupidity. They will get their ass handed to them every time they step foot in NYC.
Boston has very small shooting guards if JJ is going to bounce back - this would be a perfect game to do it. And yes expect a lot of JJ post ups/isos if they put Jason Terry or the frail Courtney Lee on him. I really want our backcourt to punish any team that tries to play a small backcourt.
Courtney Lee is a good man-defender. He'll shut JJ down.
I know one thing I'm sure glad we don't have to listen to those Celtics announcers.
*ball goes out of bounds after a missed basket by Pierce*
Tommy: "That's a terrible call!"
Rinse and repeat.
Hope we win And stop Rondo’s streak in the process
Rondo is a selfish stat-padder Even if it hurts his team he’ll go for that record and I am fairly confident he’ll get it (with some help from the coaching staff).
The Pistons game was disgusting But at the same timehe’s been playing that way for years.
Ah crap League pass feeding me Celtics broadcast :(
I don't think I could sit through a full game of Celtics' announcers without jumping out a window. They are nauseating.
Thank god my room is in a basementa necessary safety precaution for the out of market Nets fan
Rondo is amazing to me... He has so much creativity passing the ball creating plays…And a very good defender as well The only thing missing from his game is an effective outside shot
It says a lot about Rondo when I would much rather have Pierce or Garnett out for the game than him.
Rondo is one of the biggest stat padders around the fact that he leads the league in assists doesn't make him the best passer in the league. Name me one player that has gotten better due to Rondo...
Down 65:07 remaining. Rondo is at the 3 point line with no one in front of him easy 2 points right? Except he wants an assist so he passes it to Brandon Bass who is at halfcourt. The kicker is Bass missed the layup so Rondo didn't even get the assist
This is real huh? That is like Ricky Davis Bobby Sura territory right there
Nice flop Rajon
The Boston FlopParty
*** Avery bench this sad sack of **** Blatche he's **** 'in garbage!
Blatche has 10 rebounds in 11 minnutes Lmao
Good job Blatche! Damn you Blatche! ... Every time.
My god JJ could not do anything AT ALL against Lee during that full court press.
Doc Rivers has never got a legitimate tech in his life
This crowd is dead
Rondo can take that shot all day he will miss 90% of those
Why must they remind us Courtney Lee is a former Net every time
The Celtics reporters are absolutely atrocious Very disrespectful. I sometimes wish I could strangle them
I hate humpries with passion Not because he doesn't hustle but because hes dumb as bricks
The Celtics D has been thoroughly unimpressive.
I feel like the Celtics didn't even try that quarter.
Are we this good? Or are the Celtics just not as good as we thought?
We are eating them alive on the boards
LMAO Humphries destroyed Rondo's manhood
I'm loving rondo's "unselfishness"
Booing Courtney Lee till I die.
Either the Nets are better than I thought or the Celts are on there way down quick
Wow we are dominating the "invincible" Celtics
We're dominating but we're also getting so many good calls haha
Rondo padding his stats.
Lol hilarious Rondo kick out I mean if there’s anyone worse off shooting than Rajon Rondo it’s Jason Collins
Rondo looks more like a hack each day Dude I get it you wanna get a lot of assists but to give up a layup in favor of one to a perimeter shot? Smh
That streak is ending tonight
Rondo is such a punk
And people on here said Rondo is better then DWill LOL what a joke
Boston is just god awful today
Stackhouse must be drinking the stuff they shot into Kobe's knee because he looks rejuvenated
They finally figured out how to put Red Bull in shots
Damn we're gonna see some suspensiosn Cant go into the crowd
Hump didn't do a thing!
Rondo punched Humphries in the head.
Nets are the most hated team in the league!!!! I love it!!!
All this on a Garnett flop
Rondo definitely initiated it. He just pushes Hump for no reason. Then Hump grabs Rondo’s jersey, then Rondo starts SWINGING
Garnett flopped!! Hey rondo, you MAD??
Hump did NOTHING wrong but stand his ground. Rondo is just a punk, as is KG.
Humphries is innocent It was a hard foul, but nothing to get upset about. Rondo just attacked Humphries for no reason
Rondo should be suspended multiple games
Wallace went after Garnett like a Crip on a Blood.
Kudos to Hump for refraining from punching that alien in the face
Boston is getting outplayed and embarrassed Rondo is upset cause is streak is going to come to an end
Good get that loser out of the game. Rondo is nothing but a diva.
That streak is over for RONDO!!! Hahah
Wow, how is KG not ejected?
Because he's KG. He didn't really do anything wrong. He was just being intense.
I really don't understand why Gerald got a T when he was trying to prevent a fight.
Rondo is such a little bitch. I'm glad his stat padding streak is over.
Rondo is the biggest punk in the league, can not stand him. Him and KG actually. The two biggest dip **** in the world, can't take it that they're getting beat, so they start a fight. So glad Rondo's assist streak ends tonight because of this. Piece of ****.
Rondos streak of 37 consecutive games with double digit assists is now over. What a dumb way to end it, moron.
Celtics are a bunch of punks who are clearly mad that the Nets we're giving them a beating.
Peace out Rondo, you piece of garbage
Rondo lost his streak LMFAo
The Humphries ejection demands an explanation from the refs. That’s garbage! And Rondo needs to be suspended.
Boston is a bunch of thugs. They couldn’t take getting their backsides handed to them by the Nets so they had to mug our guys.
Good rondo's garbage streak is over
Garnett flopped. It wasn't even a hard foul.
I think it’s time for Reggie Evans to break Kevin Garnett’s jaw with 1 minute left in the game…
Kris should of just thrown a punch at rondo and knock him out Teach him a lesson… I hope next game we HURT RONDO
Knock his eye out of his head.
Rondo is classless…
The Celtics have long been the sorest losers in the league. Rondo deserves multiple games suspensions due to their collective reputation. What warranted that shove? Give me a break
Hump is as innocent as could be
Agreed Refs just hate Kardashians
Hump laid out Rondo a few years ago with a blind pick and Rondo was still mad...
For the record, I have hated Rondo, Garnett, and Pierce since their Finals victory year. Garnett has built a reputation of messing with people smaller than him and can't take anyone his own size. Rondo is just a piece of garbage.
it's hilarious that he needed Rondo to stand up for him
Humph and Wallace did nothing to instigate, Hump was defending himself from Rondo and Wallace was defending himself from KG who tried to toss him to the ground.
Screw the Knicks, let's start a CELTICS NETS RIVALRY!!!
Why? It's not like they'll be relevant in 2 years.
Oh my what a flop. Terry gonna get a fine methinks.
Nah he got actually hit, and given the size discrepancy, it's enough for him to not get fined IMO.
Omg I hate BOSTON I don't even drink Sam Adams cause they are based out of Boston
The biggest laugh was the Celtics fans booing Rondo being ejected
THE NETS STOPPED RONDOS STREAK!!!!
RONDO'S STUPID STREAK IS DONE
Ow...these refs....now we apparently can't touch a green jersey.
PP can't hit FT against the Nets lol
Love hearing boo birds from the Boston crowd
They can’t handle the fact that they’re getting their butts whooped so they pick fights. Bunch of punks and losers.
How are the Celtics gonna win with no point guards? Remember: they do not even have a back up point guard. Just a bunch of shooting guards
Rondo has that pesci-it is angry little man syndrome
Rondo did this because He is a hot head. He was pissed that the Celtics were getting smoked and lost his cool. To echo many other posters, he is a P-U-N-K, PUNK!
Nets and Celtics have been banging real hard down low Refs haven’t done nothing I kinda saw this coming the stripes need to tighten this game up
My wife threw a book at me cuz I wanted to deck rondo myself, and shouting and the TV
Rondo should be suspended 10 games
Rondo is a PUNK. At least he won't be breaking any assist records any time soon.
The Celtics are just bitter about how much better we are than them and they took it out on Hump.
Wasn't even in a hard foul KG flopped and Rondo extremely overreacted to the flop
The foul was a basketball foul But the shove at KG’s chest while he was still airborne was excessive. He got his first T for that move. It was the right call.
It was a flop... KG should get a 1 game suspension for a flop resulting in a brawl, as an instigator. Rondo should get a 5 game or more suspension.
KG didn’t even react to the foul, there was no need for Rondo to do anything.
How the HELL do you go about fighting a guy who is 6ft but has a 7 ft wingspan I feel like it would take atleast a minute for hump’s brain to adjust to such an unusual frame. That's why the bearhug failed
The refs are now calling it tight I want Reggie flopping all over the place. Yup I said it!!!!!!!!!!!
Go to sleep, old crusty Celtics
These annoucers are out of it
They are old what do you expect
Anyone listening to WFAN? They made fun of Boston announcers lmao. It was great.
Can we boo Rondo like crazy on Christmas please?
David Stern made the call to the refs DONT LET BROOKLYN WIN
Looks like we're gonna have to beat Boston and the referees tonight
Okay, I seriously cannot take these ridiculous calls anymore...
All the Nets gotta do now is make sure Pierce doesn't do anything.
When the Nets go deep into the playoffs, We will all be able to point to this game as the game that cemented the Nets as a tough team, one able to handle adversity. Boston is falling apart right before our eyes. Can’t hit free throws, committing turnovers, not making the hustle plays and playing very little defense.
NO NO NO REFEREES YOU WILL NOT WIN THIS FOR THOSE FAKE THUGS
The Nets are putting the Celtics over their collective knee and beating that backside like it was a rented mule.
Hahahahaha Pierce was destroyed
Somebody get this man a wheelchair!
Unreal. These refs are unreal.
The Nets have been getting the benefit of the whistle the whole night, not sure what you're talking about here.
The only benefit the Nets got was getting to play against a bunch of fake thugs who couldn't back up their tough guy antics.
Celtics are old and a **** joke. Nets all day against these fake tough guy clowns.
If Gerald Gets Suspended So Should KG!
The Knicks win was a statement win, and the Celtics win tonight was the start of a rivalry. Quote me on that.
Pierce and Garnett are tired Let them rest they don’t want it enough
I hate Lee He only dunks and gets layups and acts like an allstar
On Boston Telecast Tommy Heinson said Hump should get 1 year in prison for the incident earlier.
Heinson should get locked up in solitary confinement.
More like a mental institute For comparing Greg Steimsma to Bill Russell
Tom Heinsohn probably losing his mind right now
I'm starting to hate Boston. Such cheap punk players, always doing violent things
4 years 21 mil? For Courtney lee??? I had no idea he got that much
I hate him and all But I hope he’s all right
Reggie is a hitman 1st Green Now Lee
I am LITERALLY laughing At Courtney lee. I never wish critical injuries to anyone….on the nets.
I love that were so physical....knock out the Celts!
The Czar said it best If you play next to Reggie Evans your going to need extra insurance
Courtney Lee pulling a Paul Pierce
Someone needs to teach Lee how to flop properly Or he’ll really hurt himself.
I hate Boston... More than I hate Philly
TD Garden is pretty nice though.. Too bad its in Boston
Not outside Looks like a giant cement box
A moral victory for Boston For a split second there, they got the lead under double-digits, to 9. They can be proud.
I hope Reggie or Gerald catches that punk Garnett out in the parking lot after the game.
Quality road win. And Rondo got off lucky by getting himself ejected.
Solid win - Rondo doesn't get the streak record and exposes himself for the punk he is.
There's a new king of the Atlantic division. Bye bye Boston. Hello Brooklyn!
