Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Bulls fans have always hated Rondo. Love how they were hoping to keep his assist streak from continuing and then said they cheated to keep it going. The Rondo photo cracked me up. Too funny. Of course there are the usual ref complaints and the "old Celtics" comments. I hope you enjoy today's comments...
I think the Bulls win. The Celtics aren't playing as well as most thought they would. They've been playing at the same level as their as their opponents.
Celtics have looked like hot garbage this year. I think age is finally catching up to them I expect a Bulls win and a big game from Boozer as he should be able to dominate Bass, and Sullinger.
We've got answers for everybody except Rondo.. Just a matter of who shoots better, IMO. They do have Terry, who can kill us...
Looks like we dodged a bullet by not pursuing Lee... he's been terrible, as far as I can tell.
Who keeps putting eastern time on these threads? I'm from NY, you honestly expect me to subtract a 1, what do you think I own an abacus:
JT looks so wrong in a Celtics jersey.
KG is killing Jo at the minute.
There are an awful lot of Celtics fans in the UC tonight
Courtney Lee has some weird motion in his jumpshot. Not nice
Both Barbosa and Terry would be really nice as Bulls.
Barbosa kills the bulls
This is the Boozer that I want to see for 4 quarters
You mean one quarter in November, One in December, one in January, and one in April?
Boston is shooting 60%! I'm wondering at what shooting % point Thibs head automatically explodes....
Heinsohn hasn’t been nearly as annoying as I expected. Mostly because he actually hasn’t talked that much. He just interjects with weird, short comments occasionally He did try to argue that pierce did not foul jimmy on the fast break though. Of course.
He hasn't had much to complain about :(
Jo has a tendency to have brain fart moments whenever he has to dribble the ball more than 5 times.
Too many marijuana for Jo last night.
Rondo is killing us. We are not sharp at all tonight, just getting out executed.
A lot of people were asking for Nate to start. Be careful what you wish for.
**** Rajon Rondo... **** him
Can't wait til rose us back to own Ronda
Nate can't defend Rondo.
Nate can't defend. Plain and simple.
Rondo may be a d**che, but he's the best PG in basketball.
Agreed on both counts.
Did we already forget how silly Rose made Rondo look last year? Like, complete domination.
Can someone tell me why the Celtics gave Jeff Green the contract they did? Seriously, he is crap.
They're even outhustling us. No way we win this way tonight.
Sorry, but we suck.
Nate still in it...Rondo Avenue will still be open..
Chris wilcox has serious hops
Seriously, what does Jeff Green do that justifies his close to 9 million per year contract?
He is such a nice guy!
If we lose this game..I'm blaming thibs and I don't care who disagree with me.
Celtics have some ridiculous depth
It's insane, I love there squad
CAN WE HOLD RONDO UNDER 4 ASSISTS IN THE 4th? If we do, we will break his long *** streak of 10+ assists.. That right there would be very satisfying even if we lost
Wide open 3 to end the quarter. Just terrible.
I'm pretty sure all 29 teams in the league will give Jared Sullinger the 3 all game long.
Where is Paul Pierce? Did he get hurt or has this just been a walk through practice thus far for the Celts?
He'll clock in under 2 minutes with a key elbow jumper.
This is old school KG, being a mental midget in the fourth.
How the **** is that a looseball foul? **** you stern for sending the call in and rigging it
We need one stop, let anyone but Terry shoot
These refs are ****ing awful
4 mins to keep Rondo under 4 assists !!!!!!!!!
Teague is going to destroy Rondo's assist streak!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**** Rondo is one assist shy
Nooo wait, they ****ing gave Rondo an assist somewhere - I swear they cheated
They do that for Rondo all the time... I once saw him get an assist by passing to a teammate who passed to another teammate for the shot... They gave him an assist
Celtics picking up a lot of fouls Its because they cheat
Refs don't want to call fouls on Boston...
They have to clamp down on JET. He's the one that you have to watch off the ball.
Teague should have run right into Garnettt and then flopped like a smallmouth bass. They have to force the call on the moving screen
So the Celtics do a walk through practice for 40 minutes, Bulls take them by surprise a little bit, Celtics decide they need to show up for eight minutes and win. Color me unimpressed with this Bulls squad. Rose or not
If we brought it all game, the Celts would have too. The Celtics played on cruise control and kept us at an arms length all game. It's not like they were going all out
They have to cruise because they are old. Also overrated Imo. Last season ECF would not have been that close if Bosh had been there from the start.
I agree. Celts aren't an elite team anymore.

Rajon Rondo's been given an assist they missed in Milwaukee. That makes 11 for the game and thus a new NBA record 28 straight games of 11+.

Sean Grande has tweeted that they found a previously unreported assist for Rondo in the game against the Bucks. He was previously recorded as having 10 assists in the game and that left...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“He works hard at his craft,” Pierce said. “It’s developing nicely over the years. I feel that with me, Kevin (Garnett) being around here, I’ve been a part of that. It’s beautiful to watch him finally...
BOSTON — Let’s be honest. Sports crowds do not always have a complete understanding of what is going on. They will loudly cheer a basket by the home team even when the shot was taken several seconds after a whistle was blown, or they will have a conniption when a batter slugs a high fly ball, thinking home run, when the can o’ corn has no chance of leaving the infield.
The Boston Celtics entered the season expected to contend with the Miami Heat (and possibly others) for the Eastern Conference title. They’re off to a 3-3 start, which isn’t bad, but certainly not impressive when you consider that two of the wins came against the Wizards. One of the main problems for the Celtics is their age. Kevin Garnett is 36 and Paul Pierce is 35, which...
Only 5 games into the season it is way to early to panic about this team or jump off the bandwagon. I said this at the beginning of the season we need to wait about 20 games to really judge this team and make a judgement to weather this team is going to make a title run. The good with this Celtics team in the first 2 weeks has to start at the top with the play of PG Rajon Rondo....

Kevin Garnett is still the heart and soul of the Boston Celtics defense
The Boston Celtics fell to 2-3 on the season after losing 106-100 to the Philadelphia 76ers in the Garden on Friday. The lost also dropped their home record to 1-2. The Celtics are struggling to find their chemistry on both sides of the ball, at an incredibly inconsistent rate. There are times when they are putting...
Did you hear that collective sigh of relief? That was Celtic nation. Jeff Green has all the tools and capabilities to do good and even great things. This dunk was just straight up dirty by Green. I think Al Jefferson may have filed a restraining order after it. It was nice to finally see a mean side of Jeff Green. Earlier during the week we heard he was too soft and nice...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...
