Found March 21, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
The fans posting on the Hornets' boards have become very few, but I guess you can't blame them.  It's pretty funny to see fans who are set on tanking and getting the best draft pick suddenly want to win just because it's the Celtics.   The Celtics should not have lost this game.  They pretty much beat themselves.   There is something very wrong when the bench that Hornets fans describe as the worst in the league outscore the Celtics bench 39-17.  Last night was a double heartbreaker for me.  The Thunder lost in the same way as the Celtics did. Up 1.  Missed shot.  Tip in.  Game over.  Sigh.  On to the next one.    No excitement for the game tonight? Something about "5 Reasons why not to watch..." Interested in how EG fares against the vaunted Avery Bradley. Stuck at work Gonna miss tip off. You ain't the only one missing tip off, judging from all the empty seats on television. I hate the tank I love me some Bradley defense. Might as well be considered a road game. Bandwagoners are out in full force? Vasquez makes me literally sick to my stomach when I watch him. Can't wait for a good PG Green's beast mode remains activated.... Does anyone have a worse bench than us? Miller's looking decent Decent compared to who? Hornets don't even look like they are trying hard Turning it off. I can't take the tanking. It drives me insane, because I really don't see the benefit 5 years from now when you're stuck tanking every year. Damn, wish we had a player like Bradley. Love him. Pierce changed his pivot foot at least twice on that last shot Gordon looking good for a second half. Just don’t wreck the tank please. I still don't forgive Byron Scott For ignoring Brandon Bass while he was here Still can't believe how quickly Byron Scott gave up on Bass These Celtics announcers are horrible.... I put the game on mute and turned on ESPN. That's how bad it is.... Look, a 5-0 run right back. I guess the saying that basketball is a game of runs is true. Davis should be doing great then, they said he has the runs tonight... Scalabrine spitting knowledge. How did we get where we are? Something called defense Very strange Boston’s bit a little sloppy and the Hornets less so and taking advantage (playing D and something of a smart offense) We are really good at losing. What the hell is with all them Celtic fans? Please cut Lopez NOW! Dude is 7'1 and scared to take a small forward to the hole 5ft away? Just SOFT Has anyone else noticed the retard sitting next to the Celtics bench supporting them, decked head to toe in Lakers gear? WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTT? Man shabazz plays exactly like Paul pierce, can we just draft bazz now please? Avery Bradley completed intimidated Vas with defensive pressure tonight RYNO FOULED ON A 3333333333333!!!!!!!!!!!! We never get THAT call What do you know, Crawford got one right. Can Ryno make 3 FTs? THAT is the question I was just about to say Pierce gave us 3 points but … Guess not..... I just can't believe the applause when Anderson missed it. Insult to injury right there. I'm not a fan of Montys late game coaching & strategy Or his offensive or defensive schemes. Or of his minutes and ways to develop players. Or pretty much anything he does. Don't forget his suits and facial hair If we were to ever win a game for the rest of the year, I would like this to be it. I think it would be really good for our confidence. Oh God, don't let Joey Crawford decide this game. Hahahahahaha yea baby!!!! It's even sweeter to deliver a deadly blow to the Celtics!!!! Ad baby!!!!!! Our MFN future right there!!!!! No Pelican Tank photo tonight! Awesome win! So happy! You need a win like this over a perrennial winning team once in a while to keep morale up with this young guys. You should've heard those Celtics announcers crying! AHAHAHAHA glorious. I hope all those d-bag C fans in the arena pick up some tissue to wipe away their tears from the Celtics announcers table. Anthony Davis wrecks the tank. And the look on his face is worth it. Love the competitiveness. Ping-pong balls be damned I’m mad happy for Davis I love it! It’s just one game. The “tank” is fine. I think this tip-to-win by Davis (with solid play from Gordon, Anderson and the rest) is more valuable. (now let’s lose every other game!) Davis got that tip in over Garnett too. Passing of the torch? Garnett just saw his future is short Well, that's all, folks! Screw the tank, winning feels good Hope that loss discourages even one degenerate C's fan from showing up next season. I know people from Boston that live here and that's understandable, but to be a Louisianian and show up with green? Get outta here. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
