Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
It's amazing how teams that are tanking and want to lose every game still get up for the Celtics. Maybe it's Byron Scott's Laker hate of the Celtics or years of getting beaten by them but they all hate the Celtics. And everyone hates on Tommy. But I love him, and don't want any announcer but him. I'm not so upset about this loss. We didn't have KG or PP and we are seeing some signs that the new guys are starting to get it with their increased playing time. And since the Bucks also lost, the Celtics didn't lose anything in the standings. One thing I agree with is that I'm tired of all these serious injuries. Seems like there are more every year. I hate seeing anyone seriously hurt, no matter what team they play for.
Looking forward to some Tommy H, tonight. Always amusing.
I don’t see Jeff Green going off on us tonight, probably Brandon Bass or Jason Terry will this time
I don’t feel like being here anymore
Yeah…Friday night..but Kyrie is playing so maybe he’ll torch Avery Bradley again
I really hate the Celtics and would love to snap our losing streak against them.
At least we don’t have to see Rondo force a triple double
Apparently, we only have energy on the road, against bottom half Eastern playoff teams
Shavlik Randolph is a thing again.
Just point Crawford at the hoop and let him go. He’ll probably miss.
WILL THIS GAME GET BYRON SCOTT FIRED?!?
So a guy who averaged 32 points in China is murdering us
Why does this always happen to the cavs? A random bench guy on other team just destroys us
Where has Terrance Williams been? I forgot all about him, when did he join the Celtics?
Why isn’t Casspi starting every game?
Because Byron hates Israelis.
See this is what happens, Conrad Made fun of Jeff Green throughout the season, and now he’s making us pay
He’s been pretty good since KG went down.
Tristan finally proving Chris Grant smart for picking him instad of taking Kemba and playing Kyrie at his natural position
Joe Dumars is clearly a better GM because he finally put Brandon Knight in his natural position
I think DeAndre Jordan put Knight in his most natural position, curled up like a fetus on the ground
Seems like the scorekeepers that pad Rondo's assist are cheating kyrie out of his. He official has 5 but I counted at least 7 or 8
Wow we had a good 3rd quarter. Now will we fall apart in the 4th?
This is the type of game that looks like Boston is blowing this on purpose. I think they would rather play NY than Indiana
This is why the cavs stink, the refs won’t ever call fouls for them
Haha. Avery Bradley is a turd. Dance on em Kyrie
The Boston commentators are a disgrace to television, apparently gee murdered green to get the fast break going……..
If Tristan poked him in the eye so he won’t kill us again, then TT gets doubleMVP for this game.
First game in awhile where they were physical and it looked like they actually gave a ****.
I knew Crawford was gonna chuck that. Woof.
Jordan Crawford, kill yourself while you’re ahead.
What the hell, JET?
THAT’S WHY YOUR HEAD IS LOPSIDED JASON TERRY
I love how the Boston announcer says “Quarter”. Kwatah.
Shavlik with one of the great foul rates I’ve seen.
Like I know we’re not super talented or anything but I feel like we should hold a big lead once in a while. Boston is playing a bunch of turds.
Terry is complete garbage except for like 20 minutes this year. AWFUL contract.
Ha kyrie took out Avery Bradley
Boston playing Harlem Shake….I thought they hated NY
They hate the letter “r”
Screw the tank. Win this game.
Zeller's best defense is the flop. That is one thing he has down. Acting.
Jeff green is really impressive..Glad he could make it back after a life threatening event
It wasn't even enough to call it a touch foul. Tommy is just the absolute worst commentator in all of sports.
Him and Hawk Harrelson together on a single broadcast could end the world.
Btw, slightly off-topic but is everyone else sick and tired of the injuries decimating pretty much every team not named Miami or Okc? Asterisk year. Again.
Yeah it’s not fun.
It’s the shoes, man. It’s gotta be the shoes.

AROUND THE WEB
CLEVELAND -- Four days ago, Byron Scott was on the hot seat.
At least, that was the skinny on the Internet and all the sports talk radio stations.
The Cavaliers had lost 10 straight and looked about as tough as five cuddly kittens when it came to defense and rebounding.
But Sunday, the Cavs came from behind to scoot past visiting Orlando by a 91-85 count. It was their second...
Byron Scott was handed a mess three years ago by the Cavaliers. He hasn't been able to clean it up.
With his third season as Cleveland's coach draining to its final days, Scott's future with the club is under question. The Cavs lost their 10th straight game on Wednesday night, an embarrassing 113-95 loss to the New Jersey Nets, who were missing two starters but still...
BOSTON — The vultures are circling Byron Scott.
The third-year coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers was at TD Garden on Friday, preparing to lead his injury-ravaged, last-place team against the Celtics. A day earlier, he had been asked to address his job status, and while he declined to defend his body of work, a quick glance at his win-loss record with the Cavs made it easy to understand...
Jeff Green has been all smiles since March hitDoc Rivers spoke in practice about Green’s starting gig once KG gets back, saying that he has wanted to start the Georgetown product for quite some time, but his play has only recently justified that decision (via ESPN Boston):“I was hoping (to start Green consistently at some point),” Rivers said. “That was my intention. We weren’t...
8 a.m. ET: The last time the Celtics and Cavaliers met up, Jeff Green provided a thrilling ending. The Celtics would probably prefer if things were not so exciting this time.
Having snapped their two-game losing streak with a victory over the Pistons on Wednesday, the Celtics (39-36) are back in action. Their opponent is the Cavs (22-52), who are having a forgettable season despite...
After a couple weeks of shame, the Celtics got hot tonight and cruised by the Wizards for a 107-96 victory. This kinda game was inevitable. Recently, the C's have been playing down to their competition. But in this one, things were different. Let's hope they keep this kind of play up.
Tonight's USOTN goes to the surprisingly bad performance of Jeff Green. Now I'm...
Jeff Green and Paul Pierce have been working well together on offense.Doc Rivers recently told the media that during the playoffs, he is considering using a lineup that includes Paul Pierce and Jeff Green both starting at shooting guard and small forward. This was obviously a revelation, since what would presumably be the playoff starting lineup (Bradley-Pierce-Green-Bass-Garnett...
Jeff Green has made quite a name for himself while helping fill in for the injured Kevin Garnett.
He may need to step up even more with Paul Pierce banged up, too.
Green looks to build on another terrific effort as the playoff-bound Boston Celtics host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who try to avoid an 11th consecutive loss Friday night.
Green, who burst onto the scene with a career...

The Boston Celtics’ forthcoming future ultimately weighs on the remaining games on their schedule, and specifically how the newcomers and veterans on the team can collaborate to flash off the true Celtic green.
Whether Kevin Garnett returns to the line up remains to be at question, but what is known is the camaraderie and chemistry...
The Celtics try to hold on to the 7th seed with the return of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the lineup… joined by Jeff Green in what could be a preview of the team’s playoff starters. We’ll be talking about it at halftime with you…
There are 3 ways to join:
Tweet us with the #RedsArmy tag. You don’t even have to mention anyone, we’ll see it with the tag.
First off, it was great to hear that the whole team, Rajon Rondo, Sully, and KG included were on the court today as the Celtics honored members of the military. The photo above shows members of the Air Force presenting a flag that was flown in the Middle East to Doc and the team.
Second, Paul Pierce didn't practice today, but it wasn't related to the personal reasons that...
With a game like this, following a losing skid that has seen the Celtics drop 7 of their past 10 game, it would be easy to blame the injuries to Garnett or any other member of this decimated team but these recent losses are starting to become a cause for concern. The team is limping towards the playoffs and is in danger of losing its position in the seeding. To make matters worse...
It was like watching a Browns game. There were expectations. Kyrie Irving’s return in a matchup of premier point guards, Byron Scott coaching against his former Eastern Conference Champion team, a chance for some revenge on Brook Lopez. Former Cavs head coach Mike Fratello on the sidelines calling the game for the Nets YES network, probably fresh off a visit to his...
What you're waiting for; Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce return tonight. Avery Bradley will play. Bass and Green join them in the starting 5.— Sean Grande (@SeanGrandePBP) April 7, 2013
So we finally get a look at the Celtics lineup that we have all been waiting for. Avery Bradley and Paul Pierce in the back cour. Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and KG in the front court. Woo...
