Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
I'm not sure what to think about this team any more. They showed during the win streak that they can play the right way. But then they don't. Not even after Doc called them out. They have to get it together, starting with the defense. This losing stuff is getting old.
I want a W because I despise everything Buh-stun.
Will be interesting to see how Waiters plays against Bradley, one of the better perimeter defenders in the league..
Recipe for disaster. Waiters goes 3 for 16 for 9 points and the Cavs lose by 19.
Celtics are old and tired. Only a matter of time before they blow that team up.
We stand no chance in this. The 10th and 11th guys on the Celtics depth chart are more valuable than Rudy Gay and Avery Bradley is better than Lebron according to Celtics fans.
Barbosa for Miami’s big three is probably the only move they could pull off but even at that would they see minutes?
Celtics’ and Lakers’ fans are the absolute worst about thinking their **** players are gold. Fitting.
BEAT THE GERIATRICS
Looks like Kyrie wants to show up Rondo
Making everyone look stupid for putting Rondo ahead of him in the All Star Game. Kyrie ***** on Rondo...it's not even close.
WOW awful call already. How the hell is Garnett slipping a foul on Zeller?
We are so bad defensively. Mike Brown would have a heart attack if he was forced to coach this team.
Zeller just got blocked by a flat footed Sullinger. That's unbelievably sad.
These refs think they are in Boston…
That shot proves Rondo is no all-star!
I can honestly say that I dislike every player on the Celtics
Hey, let’s defend Garnett
In 5 years, he’ll be able to shut Garnett down.
In his defense, Garnett will be super old.
So how many people on the Cavs do you think KG could maim before a foul was called?
He’s already at, like, 3, so probably all of them.
Avery Bradley is just a ridiculously good defender
Damn Paul Pierce and his old-man ball.
Pierce’s brand of basketball is revered by fat people the world over.
Boston is being destroyed by Luke Walton. This is hysterical.
Sullinger ripping us up. Why didn't we draft him?
So Kyrie Irving is pretty good.
We should trade him while his value is high.
Quick, BEFORE HE GETS A BLOOD CLOT!
So guys, Sully or Zeller? Just wondering what your thoughts on them are
Sully is a man. If he didn’t have an old mans back he would have gone high so you can’t really grade him
Sullinger returning to Ohio with vengeance
So many Celtics have just gross shooting motions. It is pissing me off. Pierce, Lee, Rondo, Bass. Yuck.
Tristan with 16 POINTS in the 1st half… against mostly Garnett. I’m amazed.
Cavs shot 50% in the half. Can’t remember the last time that happened.
I hope Rondo and everyone who voted for him have fun watching the All-Star Game. All that matters is who we know is really the better of the two
I love the harsh decline of the Celtics. .500 this season and they are headed straight to mediocrity for a while unless they pull some crazy ****..
Garnett reminds me of Kratos from God of War
What? KG is the fakest tough guy that ever fake tough guy’d. Kratos is the ultimate badass.
He is incredibly likable, compared to their little ***** Rondo
Or Kevin “You look like a cancer patient/You’re estranged wife with whom you are having marital issues tastes like Honey-Nut Cheerioes” Garnett
Yep. I hate both of them. Pierce too, just to round it out
All cocky d-bags who are only liked by their fan bases.
I’m kind of tempted to watch the Celtics broadcast just so hear how delusional and homerific they are
Should be burying these old Celts, but keepin them it in with poor d.
Pretty sure what just happened to Dion is illegal in most states the lack of calls he gets is absurd
Is he bleeding? No? Then nope, not a foul.
And Boston fans argue that the refs actually hate their team.
These refs are horrible.
I hate third qaurters almost as much as I hate Tyler Zeller and these refs
“Hi i’m Avery Bradley and i’m a terrible 3 point shooter. However when I play Cleveland i’ll hit shots that I never would against another team.”
BS block on Kyrie totally changed the flow of the game in Boston's favor. Thanks, refs.
F*** you, Jeff green
Seriously, though, Kevin Garnett fouls on every play. It’s ridiculous.
F***ING COURTNEY LEE WIDE OPEN AGAIN ASDIFHAEITHA
Is anyone hearing a f***ing annoying Boston fan screaming on TV?
Yeah it's like he's sitting right by the floor mic. He was going bonkers over Sullinger in the first.
Someone stuff a brick down his throat.
Someone just shoot Caspi. And that Boston fan too for the hell of it.
That's right KG, time to retire you old bum.
THEY CALLED A FOUL ON KG
Mind. Blown. So you’re saying they could call one on anyone?
This reffing is really, really infuriating
Paul Pierce is a scumbag
“Waaaah” – Paul Pierce
NBA refs always seem to have an agenda.
Livingston just drew a lucky foul. Drove to the basket and it looked like Sullinger had a clean block on him.
Kyrie is shooting Kobe shots, except he’s making them
I’m pretty sure that was Uncle Drew.
Hate to say it, but that was a smart play by Rondo.
Rondo, that was so incredibly stupid.
Somebody tell Rondo he doesn't get an assist when he passes to Kyrie
Garnett is soft. Somebody punch him while the ref isn’t looking, he’ll burst into tears
Pierce is a thug too. Screw the Celtic
I still hate Paul pierce, from the exhibition season years ago, when they almost fought, hes a cheap player
Even Celtics announcers agree that it was a veteran favoritism call.
That foul is called the senior citizen special
Kyrie has destroyed all the top pgs in the league he is truly the best
FREAKING NICE, PAUL PIERCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Give that man an “airball” chant.
A Pierce airball. What a f***ing glorious way to end this.
And Kyrie has 40.
40! Suck on that garnett
Is that his age?
Boston is not good. They need to blow that **** up.
Least we wont have to worry about another Celtics/lakers championship.
It's always great beating the Celtics
Aside from the heat, beating the Celtics gives me the most pleasure. Pierce is a thug. Rondo is a thug. KG is a wannabe thug. I hate them. This feels good
Hey everybody, did you remember that we traded a D-leaguer for 3 bench guys and a first round pick? Just thought I’d remind everyone. Because that was awesome too.

Throughout the Celtics latest losing streak, there seems to be a lot of reflection going on within the team's locker room. A few days ago it was Doc Rivers questioning how bad the team 'wants it' and threatening to get rid of players if the team doesn't start winning. Last night Paul Pierce questioned the team's mental toughness. Among those currently in a state...
IT'S A HONEY OF AN O
A surprising number of Cheerios-related items were confiscated by security during the Knicks-Celtics game in Boston, the first since the KG-Carmelo dustup.

Good piece this morning on KG from the NY Times’ Harvey Araton. Heading into tonight’s game with the Knicks, Melo & KG have supposedly put their squabble behind them. But we all know that with KG, anything’s...
Carmelo Anthony says he just wants a victory in Boston and has moved on from the trash-talking incident with Celtics forward Kevin Garnett that eventually got him suspended one game.
“I don’t care what message I sent to him,’’
The Boston Celtics reportedly instructed security guards not to allow Honey Nut Cheerios boxes or signs into the TD Bank Garden for the team’s game against the New York Knicks on Thursday.
The last time the teams played, Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony and Celtics forward Kevin Garnett got into a fight that resulted in double-technical fouls. Melo was so upset with KG he confronted...
Rondo and Garnett come together as All-Stars
The Boston Celtics have landed two players into the starting lineup of the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett will both be starting this year for the Eastern Conference.
For Rondo this will be his fourth trip to the All-star game and the first time he will be starting. In his first three appearances he has averaged...
After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room.
The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful...

Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and won his rematch with Kevin Garnett as the New York Knicks ended an 11-game losing streak in Boston with an 89-86 victory over the Celtics on Thursday night.
It came 17 days after a verbal clash between the All-Star forwards following Boston's 102-96 victory in New York led to Anthony's one-game suspension.
Anthony was booed frequently...
BOSTON -- The first meeting between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett since their nasty encounter on Jan. 7 in New York turned into just another night of misery for the floundering Celtics. Anthony, suspended for a game for going out to the Boston bus after Garnett's alleged comments, scored 28 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the New York Knicks to a 89-86 victory...
No matter what was said between Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett during and after the last time the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics met, Anthony says the incident is behind him.
Thursday night's rematch in Boston simply is one between two struggling teams looking to right the ship.
On-court bickering led to technical fouls for both players in the final minutes of Boston...
The Celtics are just so inconsistent. Doc was right to call them out after this game. Hopefully that gets them going. They've proved that when they give the effort they're very good. I love the Bird/Laimbeer fight. My favorite part of that was afterwards when they told Bird that Laimbeer said he was just going for the ball and Bird said that he was just giving...

The Knicks are going into Boston tonight looking to kill off some old ghosts. They are looking to kill “The Ghosts” of the five time consecutive Atlantic Division champions, the “Ghosts of Honey Nut Cheerios” and finally… the ghost of 11 straights losses in Boston. At this moment, the Knicks sit a half game up on the number 2 seed in the...
