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%...

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.
Rajon Rondo has played a lot of minutes. That’s probably because, as usual, there isn’t a reliable option behind him to run the Celtics offense.
We knew going into this season that Rondo would play a lot of minutes. But there have been way too many instances of Rondo slacking off. The most egregious examples come from the Milwaukee game, where a lot of guys were coasting...
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...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
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...
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...
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...

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...
Go ahead. Try this at your local schoolyard. Call me when you actually make it.
In other news, Rajon Rondo needs to be more aggressive in his own offense.
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...

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...
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...
