Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Knicks fans have to be the most classless in the league. They even have the Lakers and Heat fans beat for having the least class in the league. They even beat the Nets fans even though they are now in the same city. Any time you see fans wishing death or injury on a player, all class has left the building. They really had no room to complain about the officials either because they got more than their share of the calls. And I saw Carmelo bump the ref last night just as much as Rondo bumped the one in the Hawks game. Of course Doc isn't petty enough to call that to the league's attention. Not likely they would do anything anyway, just as they never do anything to Kobe, Wade or LeBron when they manhandle the refs. I love reading fans complain about Celtics fans in their building. It was a very entertaining game and the good guys won. Enjoy today's comments. What are your favorites? Mine are in bold.
Please step on their throats and beat them by 20, send them a message that the division is ours and not theirs anymore.
I want to embarrass them and make Rhonda cry.
I really, really, really hate the Celtics.
We have nobody to slow down Rondo,I'll be surprised if we win this one.
If Pierce is on the court against the knicks I never feel comfortable.
Stop Pierce. Anyway you can. That's all.
I hate the Celtics. I can somehow tolerate getting blown out by the Rockets,or Blazers killing us on the home court. But one thing I can't stand is Boston beating us.
With Rondo out the Knicks should definitely win this one.
Damn, now those clover smoking leprechunts have an excuse when we whup dat a**!
Rondo is fake. Just like pretending to fight with Humphries.
Rondo out, When I last looked, our starting PG was out too..
Good teams can win without their star players so Celtic fans have nothing to say unless there admitting the Celts suck!
Honestly Rondo should be suspended more than one game becuz he obviously didn't learn his lesson the first time.
The play was just about nothing..have seen a ton worse than that...looked like the ref barely even noticed it
He's a headcase. You shouldn't touch an official period, he knows this he was suspended for it. He's a great talent, but the C's have been dealing with on court behavior issues with him for a while. He should be lucky its only one game.
Him leading Cousin would be awesome. Make it happen DA
Could that even by classified as a bump by Rondo? Lol
It was a crap suspension but his reputation precedes him.
I wanna see Paul pierce beg for mercy
Kill Paul Pierce.
The man has ice water for blood. He always plays big against NY, no matter what.
I hate the Celtics probably more than any other team in the league, including Brooklyn.
No Rondo is huge. That guy kills us.
I wish Sheed was playing guaranteed double techs taking **** with KG
RonDONT I’m happy he isn’t playing. I don’t care about the spirit of competition and all that when it comes to the Celtics.
I don't loathe Jason Terry Should I?
I hope Bradley eats a mothball accidentally after mistaking one for a peppermint!
The rondo suspension was kinda garbage. He barely touched the official
Scumbag Celtics fans at the game
That ref needs to go back to the kitchen.
Call me crazy but if I was starting a Franchise the first PF I would pick all time is KG.
2 on Pierce. Good call. Get that fat slob outta here
They better box out Sullinger...Dude can be annoying with the boards.
When are these refs going to give us some $@%!$@% calls
Why do the refs always take 'Melo out of the game vs Pierce... I swear to god it happens every time.
I really can't stand the Celtics....everyone on their team is a ****ing whiner. Shut the **** up and play.
Damn Green is aggressive for the first time all year once he sees Novak in front of him
HA Tech on Pierce!@ Rondo is so proud
A nice hand for Pierce
Oh no. The Knick Killer.
That old man wishes he could still do that ****. Those days are over.
The Celtics have done their homework and are cutting off the passing lanes while doubling him.
Thank you refs for not calling the ridiculously obvious Melo carry
C's are lost without Rondo.
Oh, the irony. The Celtics got a player named Green and he sucks.
Leave it up to the Knicks to play like crap against a bad Celtics team even with Rondo, but they are without him. Kinda pathetic.
Kill Paul pierce
You can't kill him he's a demon. He's undead.
The C's are just not as dangerous as they used to be. I know they are without Rondo but man they seriously lack the depth the use to have.
Man I didn't know Bradley could play D like that.
I said Bradley is a tough defender
Bradley is good
Knicks defense is officially the most overrated pathetic defense ever.
Paul Pierce is the guy even more than Melo that you know the 3 is going in when his team needs it
Yea, only against the knicks for some reason
Paul Pierce, you chubby old bastard...DIE
If PP played the way he plays against the Knicks for his whole career, he'd be a top 10 player all time.
Seriously **** Paul Pierce. Just won't miss against us
Bradley looks like a retired boxer.
We better not see the Celtics in the 1st round
Celtics match up against us oh so well, and they don't even have Rondo, its just one of those things. And I agree you don't want to face them in the playoffs.
They always overachieve against us.
I have to say the officiating is poor and mostly in our favor tonight
Dick Paveta isnt calling ****. He doesn't even have the strength to blow his whistle
I want to find the guy who stabbed Pierce and punch him for not finishing the job. That color means I'm joking but not really.
Can;t stand pierce, but..really dude?
I want to snuff Pierce so bad.
KG is getting Melo really mad now.
'Melo might knock this dude out. We can't afford it
Honestly, that would be worth a loss tonight, and a suspension for Melo. I've been hoping someone knocks that punk-*** out one day.
When the **** is Doc gonna get T'd up?
Terry should get fined for flopping.
I mean I guess it's okay for Doc Rivers to scream at the refs all game.
The sound of the Boston fans cheering at the garden is like nails on chalkboard for me
Wow. Jet is garbage
Give Doc Rivers credit for coming up with a good defensive scheme.
YO VIOLET PALMER GTFO with that late ass call. Even though it's for us, that **** is embarrassing.
Is it just me or does Doc Rivers looks like hes preaching at church on the sideline?
Terrys Brick house is unbelievable
Celtics do a good job of making the game ugly
I despise Pierce
Pierce is a ****ing scumbag
I will say this one more time. I do not wanna face the Celtics in the 1st round
Kg won..... He made melo lose his cool tonight.
Amare has no place on this team, losing to a bad sub .500 team without rondo is a joke.
Now green wants to try to earn that pay check?
Give them credit, they play physical defense and Bradley annoys me with his defense and I am just watching...
Dick Bavetta. He is 73 years old. He would be fired from old age if he had any other job in the world.
KG hasn't stopped flapping his gums the whole game, I'm glad Melo told him to shut his mouth.
Garnett is getting into Melo's head.
Refs trying to fix yet another knick game and once again its getting out of hand. SMH
Bradley is a ****ing stud though...
How do we lose to a pathetic Celtics team without rondo? No way is this team a contender, they keep losing to bad teams, I mean who loses to the lakers?
My biggest fear is getting Boston in the first round
Jared Sullinger is the new big baby...I wanna punch that guy in the mouth.
This is a real rivalry, not that manufactured sh*t with the Nets.
How was that even a foul these are the 3 most anti knick refs they put in one game
And I have to listen to the Celts announcers say what a great defender Bradley is after head butting JR.
Knicks need to just hammer the next Celtic going to the rim flagrantly.
The Pierce clutch shot followed by the scumbag taunting
Wait til we get to the TD Garden
See that kiss Paul **** is blowing? That has to be enough to shut him down for life. How do you let him come into the garden and do that crap?
I really hate **** Paul Pierce. It doesn't matter how old this guy is, he always shows up against us. Melo got completely owned by Pierce tonight.
It's official I hate Pierce more than any other player this season.
Can't believe this ****head did it to us again. Someone really needs to kill Pierce.
I hope Pierce tears both his ACL's. Yeah I said it, **** you.
I hate pierce. I hate this game. I hate this thread. I hate this board. F*ck everyone.
Pierce taunting us in our own building. How can you not take that personally.
Imagine if Rondo played? We woulda been killed.
Lol rondo is cancer.
At the end of the day, Boston is still garbage. **** them.
i really wanna stabb someone right now and i swear im not joking
No matter what at the end of the day we lost to a team without their best player on our home court, so no its not good. Celtics new they were not going to win this game unless they got into it and disrupted our game and they did just that. I credit Doc all the way, he just knows how to coach
Well now I have new pierce nightmares to haunt me
Celtics are the rare team
Which are equally hatable as individuals and as a whole unit.
This was the year to sweep Boston Instead we lose to them at f***ing home without their only decent player. There is no God
I can't wait until Paul Pierce retires.
Won't be for a while the way he's playing.
That was a 2 hour long agony Like being murdered with a dull saw. You are concious, feel everything but just know it is not going to end too good.

After hitting a big shot that would lead to a Boston Celtics 102-96 victory, Celtics forward Paul Pierce decided to do a little bit of taunting towards Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden.Watch as he blows one single kiss to the crowd while back-pedaling:(Courtesy of Pass the Pill)
Maybe the greatest win of the season so far? I haven't really had a lot of ill will against the Knicks, but maybe that's because the Celtics always beat the Knicks. Reading through the comments, it's pretty evident that that's why. The Knicks fans hate the Celtics. It's great to see how much they fear Paul Pierce. It seems like Pierce always has great games at...
"I'm coming for ya Ray."
Paul Pierce is number 23 on the NBA's all-time scoring list. Ray Allen is number 22. Pierce has been creeping up on Allen all season, and his 23 points in Monday's victory at New York gave the Captain 23,268 for his career. Meanwhile Ray went scoreless (0-5 from the field, 0-4 on threes) in Miami's loss to Indiana last night...
Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce blew a kiss to New York Knicks fans at Madison Square Garden after hitting a 21-footer to seal the win for the Celtics.
The basket by Pierce gave the Celtics a 6 point lead with 45 seconds left and put the game out of reach. Pierce led the Celtics in scoring during Monday night's 102-96 victory over the Knicks.
Paul Pierce scored 23 points, and the Boston Celtics beat the New York Knicks 102-96 on Monday night in a heated first meeting of the season between the Atlantic Division rivals.
Kevin Garnett added 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who even without the suspended Rajon Rondo won their third straight and finally are playing like the team that has ruled the division for the...
Paul Pierce buried the Knicks. Again.
Click here for Part 1 from Saturday and Sunday's Part 2. I never intended to write more than one of these, but each consecutive victory has been more impressive than the last. The New York Knicks we're just half a game behind Miami for the top spot in the East, and boasted a 13-3 home record. The Celtics were missing their...
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 New York.
Paul Pierce is this generations Reggie Miller for us Knicks fans. Tonight, watching this game, I thought the intensity was great. The fight and passion was fun to see and both teams wanted this game badly. It is so difficult to...
10 a.m. ET: If the Celtics can take care of business, their current three-game win streak could be the start of something big. After wiping out Eastern Conference playoff contenders Indiana, Atlanta and New York in a matter of days, the Celtics open a five-game home stand against some decidedly easier competition on Wednesday.
First up is the Phoenix Suns (12-24), who have the second...

In a playoff-esque atmosphere, Paul Pierce and the Boston Celtics (17-17) secure their first three-game winning streak of the 2012-13 season in result of a 102-96 victory over the New York Knicks (23-11).
If you missed some of the Atlantic Division match-up due to the tedious BCS National Championship, here is my analysis from the Broadway Showdown.
Tremendous collective effort by...
One of the few items missing from Paul Pierce‘s repertoire is the lack of a trademark celebratory gesture. In more than 14 years in the NBA, Pierce has offered little along the lines of Jason Terry‘s “Jet” flight or Kevin Garnett‘s vicious chest-pound. He has nothing as subtle as LeBron James‘ superhero pose or as unconcealed as Russell Westbrook‘s primal yell. Whenever...
After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value.
Offense: Defense: Overall:
Kind of a blah effort from Rondo for most of the night. He looked aggressive early, and he had spurts of energy, but overall, not much to speak of. He had more energy directing the defense from the bench...
On Monday night the Celtics faced the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. This was the teams first meeting of the year and was certainly going to be one of their toughest tests are the Knicks hold one of the best records in the NBA. Prior to the game bad news hit Celtic nation as the league suspended Rajon Rondo for one game after making contact with a referee in their last...
Wow. After Rondo’s suspension this afternoon expectations were low for tonight, but the Celtics came together and won what turned out to be a thrilling game. There wasn’t a single Celtic that didn’t contribute tonight, and the C’s emerged victorious in a game where toughness and composure proved to be the difference. Lets get to the bullet points:Paul Pierce found himself...
