Found November 03, 2012 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Comments after losses are usually pretty depressing. I have to say, I kind of like Bucks fans. They seem like a decent bunch who have been used to cheering for a losing team and seemed quite surprised by this win. Not much hate for the Celtics like there is in a lot of fan bases either. So, in spite of the loss, these comments aren't all that bad. Hopefully tonight we get our first winning version of CFTOS! We our going to get beat down pretty bad I think. Boston is better, smarter, and have our number. I expect a double-digit loss. Hoping to see Lamb get minutes though. 103-87 for the Celtics. They are just plain better than us. I would be shock if we come out with a win. I'm predicting a typical bucks style flow. Get down early hanging around that 10 point range. Keep it interesting to give us a little hope, but then go scoreless for the last 5 minutes I think we are going to take a brutal beating. I think that Jennings and Ellis will shoot a combined 27%, but that will not deter them from shooting incredibly frequently. The Celtics have a lot of new pieces this year and are not a well oiled team just yet. They are clearly more talented than us on paper and Paul Pierce looks to be in playoff form already. The hardest part about tonight is going to be watching Rajon Rondo making Courtney Lee look better than everyone on our roster. Courtney Lee looked like a worse version of Delfino in his first game. Guy was totally lost for 3 quarters. I keep expecting father time to get KG and PP thus really knocking Boston back, but they didn't look awful against the Heat. Rondo will be too much for our guards. Unless Boston puts their guard down a bit, I just don't see us hanging around in this one. I really hopes Sanders gets ejected tonight after blocking 8 shots and committing 2 technicals, and shows the league who the new Sheed is!! We gave Charlotte one of their 7 wins in the opener last year. Not too confident tonight. Does anyone else love a potential Ersan / Garnett match up? Neither guy will back down an inch And Garnett would be scared of Ersan, cause he gives out concussions like candy. If I was Boston tonight I would be going with Rondo Pierce Green Bass Garnett. Could you imagine Ellis trying to guard Pierce? Theyd win off that matchup alone I enjoyed that Rondo foul on Wade at the end of their game Looks like Jennings isn't gonna fold against Rondo tonight Boston cant hit open shots YAY Darko looks.... The opposite of svelte Glad Terry is missing. That guy can get hot and scorch you bad. Ersan going to get fined for the flop. I love the pause when they are going to call a charge then realise it's a star and make it a block. I can only watch a few minutes of this the Celtics announcers are as annoying as they are dumb. Man, I love rondo Boston has way too many guys who are compulsive shooters. Going to be some disharmony there. Daniels looks like crap. Why is Daniels even in the NBA ?! Never in a million years did I think Daniels would play a minute. And now he's playing over rookies with upside. Skiles is definitely coaching to "win." A ticket out of town, that is. Daniels is awful, take him out please. He is doing a good job on Pierce, but someone tell him to stop shooting Daniels is still a Celtic in disguise Daniels is the new Gooden for this board, except he plays defense. Funny thing is, 95% of us know we're still going to lose. I'm not so sure about that. Boston will make a run but I'm gaining confidence. Love Bass' game Boston's role players suck. Celtics look lost Who is this team masquerading as the Celtics? Don't know, but they're awfully late for Halloween Not that I’m complaining. Jeff Green gets paid near 40 million dollars to do whatever he does. I seriously can't believe how well we're playing right now. Twilight Zone **** Man does Ellis suck. Ellis is like Brandon Jennings... Only he isn't good at anything. The Celtics deserve this for boring the **** out of me every time I watch them Refs have been letting some stuff go tonight. Dunleavy would've been amazing 40 years ago. Garnett says "get that sh*t out of here" while down 19. What a beast. KG is always talking massive **** to the smallest, whitest guy on the other team The Lakers and Celtics are 0-2! The Mayans were right, the world is ending. Pierce looked like he was walking in quicksand. [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Rajon Rondo's crazy one-handed shot #3 on NBA's top plays

Rajon Rondo's one-handed shot-clock beater was named the #3 play of last night by the NBA. Many other entertaining plays are among those in the video above, including a vicious Vinsanity block, a Gerald Green dunk, and a buzzer-beating game-winning 3 pointer by Brandon Jennings.

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc reminded the guys that Pierce, KG are on the team

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. But then the Celtics got back to what they know best. Actually, it was more about who they know best: Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. “I made a point of it,” Rivers said. “I reminded our guys that Paul was...

Tale of Two Guards: Rajon Rondo and Jason Terry

The stage is set for another successful season out of the Boston Celtics, a team that’s managed to round out its roster with some younger pieces, yet still was able to maintain its veteran core. Rajon Rondo, while still only 26 years old, has become a part of that core, as he’s teamed up with Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to give the Celtics a Big Three over the past few seasons...

Taking Stock: Celtics – Wizards

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Better effort in this one, which shows the Milwaukee was a cruise-control, front-end of a back-to-back game.  I’m still not a big fan of Rondo’s half court defense, which I feel could be better if he just took better angles when he comes off picks...

Rajon Rondo fires back at Dwyane Wade, calls him out for ‘dirty plays’

Rajon Rondo was called for a flagrant foul during the Miami Heat’s win over the Boston Celtics after he wrapped Dwyane Wade up to prevent him from walking in for a layup. It was somewhat of a hard foul as Rondo certainly wasn’t playing the ball, and Wade ripped Rondo after the game and called it a “punk play.” Not surprisingly, Rondo saw it differently. In fact, he thinks...

Watch: Rajon Rondo responds to Wade's punk play comments

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo took a jab at Miami Heat forward Dwyane Wade on Thursday over the flagrant foul he received at the end of Tuesday night's season-opener in Miami. "I mean, I don't think it was a hard foul," said Rondo. "[Wade] sold it a little bit. That's basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole, I didn't want to give up a layup...

Who's the Punk??

Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview, "I mean...

Celtics focus on better communication and a return to their defensive roots

If you have been to or watched any Celtics game on TV in the last 6 years, you would see either Kendrick Perkins or Kevin Garnett calling and directing defensive plays for the team.   Perk is no longer here, and Rajon Rondo has  taken up the slack. In game one, KG's voice was silenced and Rondo became indecisive with his new role as on-court leader. This was not the Rondo...

Glue Guys

Chris Palmer has an article on ESPN Insider where he lists the top five glue guys in the NBA. He describes glue guys as players who accept any role, do the dirty work, have outstanding basketball instincts and promote team chemistry. They also have a willingness to sacrifice their own personal agenda in order to make the team better. While Rajon Rondo may be much maligned in...

Bucks Spoil Home Opener 99-88

On Friday night the Celtics opened up their 2012-2013 season at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Coming off a loss to the Miami Heat the Celtics looked to crack down on the defensive end and continue to execute on offense. Unfortunately neither of these things happened for the Celtics as they lost to the Bucks 99-88. The Celtics struggled from the start looking sloppy on offense...

Recap: Milwaukee embarrasses Celtics in home opener

The Boston Celtics have some very big problems right now.  I stress right now because it’s way too early in the season to get TOO worked up.  but I stress “very” because the Celtics problems are really, really, really quite bad.   Don’t let the 11 point final spread fool you, the Celtics got blown out all game long.  A couple of Jason Terry threes in garbage time helped...
