Found June 04, 2012 on Celtics Life:
 I don't think I've ever seen fans complain so much about the officiating when they are the team that shot more free throws.  Like I said before, they are so used to getting EVERY call, they can't stand it when the officiating is somewhat even.  They missed a ton of calls but they missed them on both sides.   I love how they call Celtics fans crybabies and then cry about everything throughout the game!    They are so quick to turn on their own also seeing all the trashing of Wade and calling James LeChoke and when Battier makes a 3 they love him when he misses he's Crappier.  I want to beat these guys sooooo much.  Enjoy today's comments and be sure to share your favorites .   I watched the 3rd and 4th QT of GAME 3 today. WOW....I seriously after the first QT turned off the game due to officiating. Last game could be the worst officiated I've seen in a long time and yet, not one major network talked about it...WOW... Its crazy. They missed one call in game...

Ray Allen Still 'Ginger' on Painful Ankles But Finding Ways to Fight Through Pain

BOSTON -- Ray Allen looked finished. In a three-game stretch against the Philadelphia 76ers, Allen mustered a total of 13 points. A game later he fouled out after playing only 25 minutes, and in the deciding Game 7 he shot 3-for-11 from the field and 2-for-7 from the free throw line. The stats were not the only troubling indicators for the veteran Celtics shooting guard. He seemed...

Ray Allen, Paul Pierce Seal Deal As Celtics Continue Improbable Playoff Run With Game 5 Win Over Heat

Ray Allen had missed a lot of free throws, by his standards, in these playoffs. When he toed the free throw line with 13 seconds left in the game Tuesday, there really should have been some doubt as to whether the veteran guard would convert and clinch the Celtics' victory. Only there was no real doubt. Allen calmly drained both foul shots, just as he has throughout his career...

Who’s Queen of the Boston Celtics?

DATELINE: HUMOR! When Ray Allen speaks, the world listens. After the recent playoff game, he said the series between Miami and Boston was like a game of chess. Ray then went one move beyond. He said the real strategy hinged on the Queen of each team. Ray said, “They took our queen, and we took theirs.” Good heavens, this came from our Knight in Shining Armor. We know that LeBron...

QuickVid: Rondo & Doc Talk to CLNS About KG’s Defense

Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen wouldn’t comment on the ever controversial refereeing after Game 4, but Rondo did talk to CLNS about Kevin Garnett’s defensive leadership at the 5:10 mark. Doc Rivers praised Ray Allen’s best performance of the post season after Game 4 and spoke to CLNS about KG’s defense at the 6:22 mark.

How did Celtics crank up KG to beat Heat?

Executing eight "knuckle" pushups on a parquetfloor really shouldn't be much of a challenge for a professional athlete. But for Kevin Garnett, this exercise interlude certainly seemed a bit moredifficult than dominating the low post in Game 3 of the Eastern Conferencefinals. KG, now working at center for the Boston Celtics, executed the aforementionedFriday night...

Beal Patterns Game After Allen, Wade

Bradley Beal has patterned parts of his game after Ray Allen and Dwyane Wade.

Celtics win the craziest F'ing playoff game I've ever seen, 1 win from returning to Finals

Do you know what just happened?  Does anyone? I'll repeat what I said on Twitter earlier during the game.  I've never seen a team so close in a basketball game but teeter so close to total collapse like the Celtics did all night.  They had a million chances to fold, and it looked like they'd take about 900,000 of them at various points.  The most egregious loss...

Which Celtics Bench Player Will Have the Biggest Impact on Game 4?

The Big Four can only take the Celtics so far. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen aren't getting any younger, and Game 2 proved that even when Rajon Rondo takes over, a Celtics win is not guaranteed. In order to take down the Miami Heat and advance to the NBA Finals, the Celtics need to get contributions off the bench. In Game 3, Marquis Daniels stepped up, providing energy...

Heat - Celtics Game Four Top 40 Takeaways

40) Ray Allen showed veteran savvy by playing horribly for much of the year, then turning it on tonight39) I didn't think that a team could make Rajon Rondo look better than the Sixers did, but I was wrong38) Someone needs to tell Dwyane Wade that the game starts in the first half37) When Keyon Dooling is hitting three pointers, plural, you know something weird is going on36...

A Cavalier Conversation: NBA Draft, Free Agency, Playoffs

The NBA is in full steam, and to celebrate the occasion, I brought along my brother Sam Rosen (@sjrosen18) to chat about some of the hot topics going on right now. Hope y’all enjoy our takes on topics ranging from the NBA Draft to the Cavs’ offseason and the playoffs. 1. Assuming that Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Bradley Beal are the first three picks in order, what...

Nonsensical blabber at 5 am from a Celtics fan

Dwayne Wade had 27 points.  Lebron James had 30.  The Heat had their home crowd dressed all in white behind them.  Miami out rebounded Boston 49-39.  Paul Pierce shot 6-19.  Ray Allen made just 2 of 9 field goal attempts.  And Rajon Rondo hit only 3 of the 15 shots he put up.  Yet somehow the Celtics won their third straight game in this series. What the Celtics are doing...

Comments from the other side - Heat Game 3 6/1

Miami has such bandwagon fans.  They go from Chalmers being their 3rd best player to hating him and calling him garbage.  Wade goes from the greatest ever to having low BBIQ.  I love all the complaints about the refs.  They are so used to getting EVERY call that they can't recognize it when the refs are actually  calling it mostly even.  The foul count was even, unlike...

Breaking Down The Miami-Boston Series So Far….

In a back and forth battle between the Eastern Conference elite; the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics have shown the basketball world a lot about themselves, and each other. Instead of simply looking at the box scores and taking a stab at what happened in the games, like most analysts do, I will be telling the actual stories of each game. The two games in Miami showed us both sides...
