The Bucks did what they had to to win but I'm convinced after watching this again that many of the missed shots were due to fouls not being called on the Bucks. Yes there were open misses but there were also 3 KG layups that missed because he was hacked on the arm. The officials were terrible and it culminated in Jeff Green bleeding on the floor while play went on and the Bucks got free throws. Most of the Bucks fans know that they got a gift. The Celtics just need to shake this one off and go on. On another topic, I've never seen a fan base hate one of their own players as much as Bucks fans hate Monta Ellis. Here are today's comments from the other side...
I'm expecting a loss, but I think Boston can be had. Obviously we've beaten them twice this year, although the 2nd time was with out Rondo. And really should've beaten the the other time too. Also for down the road, a win here would give the Bucks a tiebreaker with Boston for seeding/playoff berth. Boston appears to be in the mix of mediocre Eastern Conference teams.
Bucks are gonna get this one. Monta will bounce back. He'll have Jason Terry on him for most of the night.
Be nice to close the year out with 5 consecutive losses, watch Skiles get canned, and Ellis and Gooden packaged for an expiring pile of garbage... I am seriously ready to give up on this team for good if we don't do something - anything to give us a chance at a bright future. Watching the Bucks is like watching the team who plays the Globetrotters - they make a basket here and there but zero stars, 0 dunks, no flashy plays, and trash rotations.
How many times has a team finished playing another team 4 times before Christmas? That couldn't have happened more than once or twice if at all.
I'm amazed Collins is still in the league let alone starting.
I hope Ellis severely tweaks his back.
I don't understand double teaming someone shooting a 2 and leaving someone wide open on the 3 point line
Especially Paul pierce
We might in fact not be getting out coached, but it sure feels like it
KG looks terrible
Only Rondo would give up taking a wide open layup so he pad his assists.
Sullinger will never be a good NBA player.
Yes he will, he will learn well from Jason Collins
Monta Ellis D in a nutshell there. He's matched up against an ancient SF all the way out at the three point line and the guy **** blows by him for the monster dunk. What a useless sack of ****
Where the D go? Pierce is having his way
I'd take a conditional 2nd for the guy (the condition being that Monta doesn't die on the flight to his new team).
**** Rondo's a punk.
I still don't get the green for Perkins trade on Boston's side 3 years later
Get Ersan out Sully just man handle him
Illy vs Sully, not a fair fight
Green vs Dunleavy not a fair fight
That's some ticky tac **** refs.
My eyes are going to get permanently stuck "eye roll" position watching our offense
Collins, 'I got 6 fouls to use, and I'm going to use them all' true Celtic scrub big man
Let's foul out the whole Celtics team
If that move by Pierce was legal, that was really a good step under
The bucks are playing like generic bread Very stale generic bread!
We have Epke and Ersan under the basket and they both get out rebounded by Lee.
Can the Celtics just put us away for once?
Mbah a Moute is really a hustler. Wish he could shoot
That was Jennings pretending that anyone respects his jumper. And pretending that he knows how to pass.
The only solution with a guy like Monta is to never play the scrub.
Dunleavy and Marquis cant hit a shot and Pierce is lighting both of them up at the same time.
Why do we even shoot free throws?
Celts should seriously just hack Luc.
It's amazing that there isn't a "me" or "I" somewhere in Monta.
His initials are ME
Continuation? Nice job, Stern refs.
The refs really haven't been bad at all. My note: 20 FT's for Bucks and 8 for Celtics at this point
Monta would be so much better if he just eliminated any type of jumper in his game.
I think you mean he'd be so much better if he played in China.
These Boston announcers are hilarioud Super strong Boston accents “Ilya-soh-ver”
Marquis comes right in and start sucking
Luc comes out and Pierce can shoot again??
Monta honestly has no brain
He can make a free throw, at least.
Damnit, Sullinger has 5 fouls now.
Jeff Green is unstoppable.
24 FT attempts already for MIL What is our season high?
Paul Pierce attacks the basket and screams crazy loud=auto foul
We like to call that an "oral flop"
Ellis just made a jumper. Maybe this apocalypse thing is really happening.
Oh great Monta hold the ball till 3 seconds left and pass it to Luc. You **** idiot.
Skiles is the tank commander
Keep shooting KG
No Monta no problems.
Turn him into soylent green.
Jason Terry is the Monta Ellis of the Celtics.
Jason Terry has looked awful every time I've seen him this season.
How did Rondo get the board? Damn
LOL at inserting Monta. Die in a grease fire, Skiles.
The Celtics are just chucking jumpers The last 3 was all luck.. They haven’t hit anything all quarter
Damn KG got postered
Brandon owns rondo now
Both players have been invisible.
Jennings is so unclutch
Rivers is the best in the league when it comes to executing a play out of a time out. Skiles is one of the worst.
Closing time - Paul Pierce gets all the girls
THATS HOW I FEEL!!!
Monta has Jason terry on him and he's pullin up for jumpers
Rondo is everywhere
Bill Russell, I mean Larry 15pts/20reb
Larry suddenly and consistently owning Garnett is one of the most satisfying developments in Bucks basketball in the last decade.
This Boston commentator sounds like drunk peter griffin
Ersan taking eyes for a rebound? That's our boy!!
"glad" it was the elbow, I was slightly more frightened given Green's heart issues
RIP Jeff Green's face.
When I said it was vintage Ersan, I meant the tip and not the assassination, but obviously applies to both.
Get the f*** away from him garnett he's injured!!
ERSAN THE FACE BREAKER.
Ersan got away with one there.
Ersan breaks another face. Awesome.
Celtics broadcast calling out the referees for giving the Bucks extra shots all night.
The Celtics announcers are horrible!!! They are saying the refs are giving the Bucks everything and the Celtics ain't getting nothing. They want a foul for that elbow...
If only it was Garnett who copped that elbow
The Celtics announcers are only ironic because the Celtics are notorious for getting away with hard fouls non-stop. Now the announcers want a flagrant on Ersan.
Only people who ***** more than the Celtics is their commentators, my god...
Ersan probably will get a flagrant from the league office. We caught a break there, let's not pretend we didn't.
The Celtics are kinda like the Bears Hall of Famers playing a bit past their prime.
I wish every team had KG on their team every night. For Larry's statline's sake.
Larry Sanders completely owning Kevin Garnett was pretty much fantastic.
Jason Terry could possibly be the worst defender in the NBA. And even with that, Ellis couldn't go to his left when Garnett would come to help, and he chucks up his jumpers.
Boston should be calling us about the availability of Daly, They suck inside
I do have to give some props to Monta. It can't be easy being an NBA player after being lobotomized.
Boston is old. We are much younger and more athletic. Has shown itself in all four games.
So, who else hopes the Bucks match up with the Celtics in the playoffs?
How its even possible? Boston will barely make the playoffs..
it's always great to beat the complainers.
I don't know if I could handle supporting a team as entitled and douchey as Boston.
