Great game by the Celtics.  With both teams missing starting centers, they couldn't use Horford being out as an excuse.   As much as they complained about the officiating, the fact is that they got more free throws than the Celtics.  The refs let a lot of stuff go both ways. It's nice to know that they now know who Shavlik Randolph is.     Enjoy today's comments.... Tolliver on the suddenly good Jeff green? This should be good Confident we can compete and win. Celtics have been playing terribly lately and needed a buzzer beater to win against a d-league cavs team that is in tank mode. Only way I see us losing this game if we beat ourselves with mental mistakes. I have a major distaste for Green Gonna need Josh to play smart offensively tonight. I assume that step back jumper doesn't fall under "smart" Paul Pierce has to be the greatest out of shape looking player in history I'm shocked that he still beats people to the rim Old man game If you think about it, he and James Harden have very similar games Why isn't Josh inside crashing the offensive glass? You know Tolliver is a weak defender when Brandon Bass doesn't pull up for a jumper Is Boston piping in fan noise? The cheers of Boston fans pain me like the laughter of young children I just can’t stand it It sounds like a playoff game in there Ha Josh with 10 shots in quarter That is what I call playing hero ball. Quit that nonsence. Pass the ball around Most of them have been bad shots too I can’t stand the Boston announcers crying about every foul that gets called on the Celtics Teague on Bradley all day!! Well at least the Celtics cheerleaders look nice This is looking a little like a college game with all the short dudes out there. Terrance Williams is still in the NBA? Oh. Shavlik Randolph? Yeah, I know....who the hell is he I seriously can't think of a team I hate more than the Celtics Jenkins slight concussion out for rest of game They're only slight when it's someone else's head Had to have been that Pierce screen He looked wobbly getting up No moving pick call to add insult to injury. Paul Pierce gave Jenkins a concussion and did not get a foul called on him. FAIR AND BALANCED It was a clean play Faker fans would be talking about Karma. Can Tommy Heinsohn just die...I seriously hate this guy more than anyone in basketball...loudmouth prick ahole..why won't nba package allow me to listen to rathbun nique...I hate everyone who is related in any way to the Celts...from Heinsohn to ainge to pierce to that Asian towel boy whose name I don't know. Did I miss anything awesome? Seems like the point guards are playing well, and nobody else is. You missed Josh taking 17 shots in a half Josh Smith, Offensive Centerpiece And it seems it went as well as usual. And Pierce gave Jenkins a concussion That is one of the worst blown calls I've ever seen Pierce feel down and slid across the floor holding the ball. You have to call traveling. Good job by the Celtics keeping us in this one for now. We should nick-name Josh "gay pride." Because his jump-shot is such a rainbow. We're continuing to let bad shooters take a lot of jump shots Where’s the interior game? Playing in Utah His name is Al Jefferson Getting closer, Josh, keep shooting! We’re almost scoring points now! BS call in favor of Celtics Ivan didn’t even touch him ****** officiating is ******. And I’m sure the Celtics’ broadcast team is complainign about it the other way. Are you f***ing serious Celtics announcers? I’m about to put this stream on mute Refs are losing control of this game Bad calls against Hawks all over, and refs trying to give a fake call to Hawks to even it out. There's no foul there, y'know he just knocked him down with his shoulder no biggie Josh was tryign to shoot that ballb efore he caught it Way to be a liability as our “best” player. Yes it is awful Celtics announcers....awful that you think that flop should have been an offensive foul They're the most biased guys I've heard all year, TV or radio. I want to spit in Pierce's food We make a lot of marginal players look great WHY THE HELL IS SHAVLIK RANDOLPH KILLING US ON THE OFFENSIVE BOARDS What is a Shavlik Randolph? The white blob that's winning the game for Boston 9 points and 13 rebounds for Shavlik Randolph in 18 minutes Josh smith... Why are you so difficult to watch? Mike Scott with a new career high of 13....Shelvin Mack has also tied his career high with 12 And just like that, it goes from a 6 point to an 11 point game. I want to kneecap Larry Drew If we come out of this time-out with the same five on the floor I’m going to type something in all caps IF YOU CARE ABOUT WINNING THE GAME, WHY IS YOUR BEST PLAYER ON THE BENCH RIGHT NOW!? And I ain’t talking about employee number 5. Pure luck on that Jeff Green three. It’s just not our night. Why is this group in the game when we’re down 9 Maybe because drew has given up? Josh got everybody benched Jeff TEague deserves to be on the floor without having to share it with ball-hogging josh. So I guess Celtics refs really are bad Smith has taken 4 shots from just inside the 3pt arc, 3 in the 3rd. From JUST inside the arc. It's like he's trying to prove a point. Man, he really needs somebody to stimulate his mind. Nine years too late for that. I really complain about the reffing, so I'm maybe the last guy who should respond; however, this is a trash team BOS has out on the court and they're getting way too much respect from the refs. Now I want to punch Larry Drew 1-3 without Al Horford this season What’s our record in games Josh misses? 4-0....not saying we're better without Josh or anything....... No, but I think it proves that of our two star bigs One of those is critical to the team’s success, and the other really is not I doubt we’ll get homecourt advantage, we’re just not a consistent team "If I win this game only using second and third unit guys, they'll have to resi--aw ****, we lost." - Larry Drew [Discuss on CG Forums!]
