The Celtics played poor defense in the first half and couldn't hit a shot in the second half. Seems like they can't play both offense and defense at the same time. I disagree with the fan who said Doc should be on the hot seat. He's proven that he's a good coach, although when the Celtics made their reputation on defense, it was Tom Thibodeau who was behind it, not Doc. But still, Doc has proved that he can win. I still have faith though that the Celtics are going to turn it around. I've highlighted my favorites in bold. What are yours?
No way we win this. Celtics are in serious trouble now and they wanna use this game as a rebirth.
Well get ready for a rowdy BOS crowd that will be urging on a desparate Celtic team.
The Celtics are horrible. They can't rebound. They're not athletic. They're small. Unless they're outside shooting gets on track, I don't see how they beat us. They don't match up.
....and they're 17-times world champions including 2008!
The horrific, anemic Grizz offense that allows other teams to stay close even though they don't match up because the Grizz cannot punish them and make them pay for not matching up. Add the intangibles of the parquet floor, the leprechaun and that rowdy Boston crowd that will fuel the desparate Celtics and the return of Rondo and you have all the ingredients of a BOS win.
Pierce is like 80 and he is still better than Rudy.
I was really looking forward to this game but lately both C's and Grizz have STUNK
Boring atmosphere at the Garden…
And there we go. The wide open 3 again. Guess we feel that Pierce really isnt that good of a shooter and will not hit those.
Who the heck is guarding --or should I say--who the heck is assigned to watch Paul Pierce do anything he wants?
Pierce will go for 40+ tonight.
Pierce is on as well which really really sucks.
I think I could drop 20 with Rudy playing his “I don’t have anything to prove” defense on me
Which is uglier.... Rondo shooting a 3 or Tebow throwing a pass?
Joakim Noah doing anything
Tony doesn't hurt you in this game because of rondo and Avery not being scoring threats.
Rudy just continues to leave PP. This time to help with Brandon freaking Bass. STUPID STUPID STUPID Rudy
Why is everyone acting as if Paul Pierce never goes ISO against anyone or never hits these jumpers? He's one of the hardest players to guard in the whole league, he'd be doing these things against LeBron James, so cut Rudy abit of slack.
When a 35 year old (going on 36) wing player has the ball against a 26 year old wing player who is 2 or 3 inches taller and teammates are screaming "ISO, ISO!"....this is a bad sign.
The Celtics has been playing small almost the whole game with KG at the 5. We would be losing right now if BOS drained at least half of their open jumpers
KG is playing really bad.
Rondo shooting a three… Perfect ending there… Just wonder how that guy dropped 45 points on Miami last year.
Boston seems trapped in no man's land This isn’t a team that can contend, but it’s not a terrible team to win a lottery (unless NBA rigs it of course). Makes me a little sad but then it doesn’t.
Anyone who thinks Tony Allen's defense ain't all that great needs to be watching this game
Boston's D is giving us this game
If Rudy Gay runs under one more screen to give Pierce another open look at a 3 I’m gonna trade him myself!
This game is reason alone to resign Tony Allen. I do not wanna face him on another team next year.
We are so going to blow this lead
I swear to God I was just thinking the same thing. Garnett who is missing EVERYTHING is gonna start making them in the 4th and PPierce and JETerry. LOL, I hate that I thought that. Maybe since I said it, it wont happen.
BOS is playing small ball; I would not be surprised if they make a comeback because we know there is no way Hollins is going to adjust.
Terry way too open. Glad he's clanking tonight.
Doc rivers is a smart coach. Pressing to tire out mike.
This Celtics squad is very mediocre. I'm glad Grizz have gotten a little separation, but I'm a little concerned with the way our starting 5 started out.
Hahaha holy sh** KG is ANGRY
Boston's giving us the ball back. We dont’ deserve another possession
Zbo hasn't been able to get post position against KG.
And this is why we're not a contender. Any other team would've wrapped this game up. But we just let teams back into it.
Memphis-Where Choking happens.
Poor defensive execution int he first half and poor offensive execution int he second half cost Boston the game
I've seen enough of the Celtics to know that they're not good
Celtics are painful to watch. They never sucked this hard.
If the game of basketball could last 3 periods, the Grizz would be world beaters.
As for the Celtics, Doc Rivers should be in the hot seat. This team has not an intense defense anymore… Rely too much on the 3’s and have lost 4 straight games by double digits.
