Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS.
The Celtics don’t really feel like a team to fear anymore.
Jazz lose by 25 in quadruple overtime, and end with 4 players on the floor because the rest foul out.
Imma start this thread off With how much I dislike Kevin Garnett now. Back in his Wolves days I really liked him as a player and a person but seems ever since he was traded to beantown it seems hes become a wannabe tough guy/thug. Here’s hoping he keeps his antics in check so my blood pressure can stay at a reasonable (as reasonable as the Jazz will let it be) level.
It's like if you put LeBron and Wade's egos into one person, add in a little idiocy and BAM, you've got KG
Get rdy for this crap...
Garnett is a fake tough guy, a paper gangster....
If Rondo and Garnett play well this could get UGLI.
Rondo going off for 40 - 20 -20 tonight. Jazz win by 29 though.
All of the Jazz players should be holding a Ray Allen face cardboard cutout in front of their faces as they come out of the locker room. Just to set the tone.
3 of their 4 wins have come against the Wizards and Bucks. Their other being against Rose-less Bulls. They aren't that great.
They really arent world beaters anymore, Allen is a huge loss, Pierce whilst a d***he is a baller but he is getting old. F KG though I will give him no compliments. Jazz by 67.
I think if we score more points than they do, we have a pretty good shot at winning.
Refs like the jazz today
Refs be hatin As per usual
The calls were definitely toward the jazz at the beginning
Barbosa wrecking tinsley
That's because he's the Brazilian Blur. Tinsley is not a blur.
Favors isn't intimidated by KG. I like that.
I hate the fact that Foye acts like he's the primary option on the 2nd unit. ****ing scrub.
Glad that Foye is still bad at D
Got 200 year old barbosa
Boston announcers are hilarious When Jazz block a Boston shot: “He was fouled!” When Jazz get fouled: “How is that a foul?!”
Tommy H. Is one-of-a-kind
Cant stand listening to him I understand being a homer. But that guy is ridiculous
I remember when everyone made fun of Doc Rivers as a coach Getting KG and Ray sure changed that.
Big alley oop to KG Old man still gets up
The Celts are killing us with jump shots.
Haha pierce wanted a jump ball, instead they give him fts.
God I hate Paul pierce Ever since that wheelchair game
I don’t find his “old man” game at all interesting. Not because it lacks nuance, but because it’s slow and I enjoy athleticism and speed on the perimeter. As for hatred – a strong word reserved in my case for Tommy Heinsohn. He’s the ugliest caller in the league.
Celtics get away with so many fouls. No wonder they play good "defense."
To be fair,we get a lot of the same calls at home.......
To be honest I think a good defensive team gets the benefit of the doubt from the officials. It's a bit of a positive feedback-loop: reputation for good defense leads to getting calls; getting calls leads to better defense; and so on.
Oh Mo wishes so much he can tread the needle like Rondo.
Rondo wishes he could shoot like Mo.
Hopefully Big Al won't wilt like last time when KG started whispering sweet nothings in his ear.
Seriously why do players like Barbosa and kleiza kill us?
Whatever the C's have gotten away with was made up for by that hilarious call on Marvin's blown dunk.
Only a really stupid team would leave Paul Pierce wide open for three... Three times in a row.
Please die al Jefferson. ***
Id rather have rondo in there. Barbosa is doing much better tonight.
Garnett looks too good right now.
Unstoppable at this point.
Garnett has been reaching into his inner 2003 tonight
Kevin garnett needs an oxygen tank
HOLY CRAP I don’t even have adjectives for that dunk.
Gonna see that play on sportscenter.
Boston's roster all seem whiny to me.
We are letting Jeff Green kill us. Jeff Green.
You see that? BS by the refs. Both guys knew it was off of Celtics and they still got the ball.
Williams may have just lost us the game. I hate how he tries to take over at the end
MO Williams GO KILL YOUR SELF.
Lucky we got that travel call
Pretty bad call
Yeah Really bad. Paul knocked him over. THE REFS LOVE PAUL!!!!!!
Bad decisions down the stretch by Mo
That word "decision" implies that there were other options besides jack up contested shots going through his head.
Holy freaking human feces in a bucket i’ve never seen such terrible shot selection in my entire life. We have the dumbest point guard in the league. Absolutely atrocious. I am at a complete loss of words. can’t even believe that just happened. Just…wow
Mo isn't a very good point guard, is he?
We didn't score in the last 2 minutes of this game Ouch….
Did anyone else put the Barbosa having his way against the Jazz and Tinsley being in the game together as an explanation for the hot start by Barbosa?

The Celtics held on strong to beat the Utah Jazz by a score of 98 – 93. Even though Paul Pierce ended the game with a team-high 23 points, it was the bench’s 47 points that lifted the Celtics past their foe. Leandro Barbosa was a huge part of those 47 points, scoring 16 points [...]
We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Brooklyn.
“Did you see Paul Pierce hit that pull-up 3-pointer (with 24 seconds left to get them within two)?” Johnson asked reporters. “I had in my mind that he was probably gonna do it again, so I played the foul game. It’s a coaching...
THE BIG TICKET KNOWETH ALL
Nets head coach Avery Johnson recently expressed his frustration about how Celtics veteran forward Kevin Garnett is always calling out his team's plays on the floor.
Avery Johnson hates when Garnett calls Johnson's plays before they happen. Understandable.We missed this yesterday, which is a shame, but Avery Johnson had some very complimentary things to say about Kevin Garnett before the game.These quotes come courtesy of Mike Mazzeo at ESPN New York:“The funny thing is, I wish he would be quiet on the floor and not call out your plays...
The Celtics were cold in the 4th quarter. If they weren’t dunking the ball, that ball wasn’t going through the hoop.
Lucky for the Celtics, pulled off two plays that got them the high-percentage shots they needed at crucial times. Actually… it was the same play… just run on opposite sides of the floor.
Here’s the first one:
The play really happens at the :13 mark with...
Paul Pierce hit two free throws with 19.5 seconds left and finished with 23 points, lifting the Boston Celtics to a 98-93 win over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night.
Jeff Green and Leandro Barbosa each scored 16 points for the Celtics, who won for the fifth time in six games. Kevin Garnett added 11 points and eight rebounds.
Boston's Rajon Rondo had 10 assists before leaving...
Kevin Garnett whips a cross-court pass to Jeff Green in the weak-side corner. Green gives a slight up-fake and takes off down the lane. Now it’s time to go all-in or get shut down. Let’s go all in. Green has Al Jefferson directly in front of him with Paul Millsap and Derrick Favors surrounding him. [...]

Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans. And, they couldn't deny the fact that they caught several breaks from the refs. They also realize that they lucked out with Rondo's absence. Enjoy today's Comments...
No Rondo. Celtics playing the second half of a...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: 20 points on a very efficient 10-16 shooting. He hit 5 of 6 shots at the rim, and 5 of 8 from everywhere else inside the 3-point line. A few of his turnovers were sloppy, but a few of his passes were spectacular.
Defense: He played the passing lanes...
BOSTON — Anyone who claims that a dunk is only worth two points has never been in the building when a player delivered a true facial to a helpless defender.
Jeff Green produced just such a highlight-reel dunk on Wednesday, when the reserve forward bulled into the lane, elevated over Al Jefferson and slammed the ball home over the reeling Utah Jazz center. The TD Garden crowd erupted...

The Boston Celtics (5-3) squeeze out a 98-93 victory at home against the Utah Jazz (4-5) on Wednesday night.
Once again, Paul Pierce keeps his consistency moving with 23 points, two rebounds, and two assists. On the flip side, Paul Millsap posted 20 points and 12 rebounds in the defeat.
Here are some key points that made the Celtics receive their third consecutive victory...
A great win for the Celtics. Obviously, Jazz fans weren't very pleased. Mostly their hate was directed at their own players - specifically one Mo Williams. Williams started going into hero mode at the end of the game, only problem is he's not LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. Or like, Paul Pierce even. That plan didn't turn out so well for Utah.

Kevin Garnett said Celtics Jeff Green needed to find his inner a$$hole and get mean. Wednesday night Jeff showed he has a little mean in him. Check out his dunk on Utah Jazz’s Al Jefferson. Look, that was SEXY!! Oh, Jeff had a comment about the dunk on Twitter. Don’t worry Jeff, you’re [...]
