Unlike a lot of people, after last night's loss, I'm not ready to bury the Celtics just yet.  They are down 0-2 but they are going home, where they play much better.   If they can win their home games, it's tied 2-2 and then they just need to steal one game out of the 2 left in NY.  I agree with Doc that the fouls on KG were horrendous and even the Knicks fans recognized that fact.  Many admitted that they got the benefit of the calls.   Doc's game plan was to get the ball to KG early and often but KG couldn't stay on the court or be aggressive because of foul calls, several of which were bogus.   I'm not giving up on the Celtics because they won't give up. .   In the meantime enjoy today's comments and think of how much fun they will be when the Celtics win game 3.... Doc Rivers sounding very complimentary of the Knicks roster and approach. He is a class act and a very good coach. Want to eat this teams lunch, hate them. Game 2 is the time to stop on their necks and rip their heart out. Boston is dead, it's up to the Knicks to decide when they plan on doing the burial. Lets hope JET continues his brickfest. I was told that Boston ends up putting knicks on their heels in this series and makes it go 6 or 7 games. We need this series to be tough to get us ready for pacers then heat. Lol...I'm sure the NBA will probably force them to play a game 9 so they can showcase the Celtics greatness. I really couldn't stomach losing to these clowns, again, in our building. This is a gutted and old roster we're facing. I don't think Game 1 was impressive or bodes well at all. Quite the opposite. If K-Mart flagrants Garnett at any point this game I will buy a round of drinks for every man, woman, child and/or creature on this thread. Believe it If Novak flagrants Garnett at any point this game I will adopt all the puppies in the local kennel to save them all from euthanasia Clothesline, stand over him Do the discount double check. Let's talk about Prigioni pressuring Avery Bradley all over the court...I really think that'll be a nightmare for the kid. He's a pretty good SG, not a PG by any means. Ticky tack fouls already. Wow Refs trying to get us in early foul trouble...the fk.. Shump is gonna lock Green up. Oh, I see how this is gonna go. **** DA refs Refs trying to screw with us early Making sure Boston CANT lose this one too. Bradley doesn't want the ball. Look at his handles. Pablo needs to take it from him. I like that matchup Why isnt Priggie bringing the ball up Probably because Bradley's on him I'll be honest. That was a bad foul call on KG. These refs are going to be baddd That was a bad call on KG there. Refs bad in every way! In all seriousness, that was not a foul on Garnett. We getting some home cooking These refs are absolutey terrible Brutal both ways. They don’t know what to call So glad this isn't basketball Just refs playing Avery Bradley just defended the **** outta jr Bass is scary He’s capable of like an 18 point on 7-11 shooting type game. The Celtics are such an easy team to defend. Green is the only dynamic player they have. Refs are legit cheating right now. Right in front of our eyes. refs have money on BOS Did they just pull 3 random dudes off the street to ref this game? Can someone explain to me what Tyson did to foul Pierce there? Your not suppose put your hands on the elderly Fouls are going both ways. Just calling it extremely tight. I'm sure stern will try push this 7 since other 1st Rd series sux Lol Rondo wants Bradley to pad his assists like him. KNICKS 7TH MAN OF THE YEAR JASON TERRY IS IN!!! Can Camby foul a ref? It would be the first useful thing he’s done all year Lots of fouls favor us. We’re much deeper. So refs are going to let Celtic do whatever they want????? Shut the F*** up, Doc. Celts are getting away with murder on an away court. He is so spoiled Can Pierce ever get called for traveling? He did earlier in the quarter. Then the refs realize the Celts were losing. Yo pierce I know you're old but you still gotta dribble KG would have to kill a guy to get a foul right now. Novak and Cope are terrible they need to be permabenched for the rest of the game. I don’t like this at all. Their bad players from game 1 are waking up, and ours aren’t. Jason Terry deciding he doesn't suck anymore Was that a "KG sucks" chant? I hate the Celtics but that was an absolutely SICK catch by Green on the alley. Why does Doc Rivers sound like he smokes 3 packs of menthols a day and mines coal at night? Celtics look unflappable. Knicks look flapped I never liked Jason Terry Celtics can't pull away from us even when they're clicking Make some adjustments, blast em in the 2nd half Hey Tyson it's the ****ing playoffs how about doing something. The guy played like **** last playoffs and blamed the flu. Now it's the neck. Awesome. BOS shouldn't have been allowed to stay in NYC and get access to our tap water Melo is playing like a ball hog, this is all his fault We're getting a lot of help from the refs tonight, let's take advantage of that. But prigs back in Jkidd is not a PG Novak is the very definition of useless. We suck can't put these weak ass scrubs away I can see why Woodson failed in the playoffs. When he gets there he reverts back to ISO ball. Not running plays and ISOing Melo so much is coming from the sidelines. Maybe we can get by the 1st 2 rounds playing this way, but playing ISO ball vs Miami will get us swept. Miami shouldn't be on anyone's minds. This team might get bounced by the Celtics. Anyone notice Bass on that Felton drive, he wont leave Melo at all, we gotta adjust to that Three Celtics starters in foul trouble. It's over Boston. You guys are done. Pierce looks weird without his headband. C's whining to the refs Get the fifth on Garnett, please! It was nice of us to let Boston fans enjoy themselves for one half. Yes, yes. More fouls on Pierce and Garnett. Halftime adjustments are fun Maybe this mike woodson guy is a pretty good coach Haha KG Sucks chants I'm loving this Melo is playing like a beast again, take this confidence into Boston and have a good game there Friday, that would be huge Hey, remember when everyone hated Melo 20 minutes ago? there's still time left to hate melo again Sore loser Garnett starting to act out. He'll be bringing out the Honey Nut Cheerios soon. KG sucks. Block on a desperation shot and he's talking smack. KG need a taste of his own medicine, someone needs to flatten that punk We burying these old corpses. Energy is off the charts on both ends, I gotta give Woody credit for firing them up at halftime. Jordan Crawford the Dork just abused Novak Novak go die I strongly prefer Cope's brand of terrible Jordan Crawford didn't just start scoring because he's any good Jordan Chuckford THE TRUE SIXTH MAN OF THE YEAR KG Sucks!!! 5th on KG! Getting key players in foul trouble is kinda fun. Keep talking sh*t Garnett. You're not getting away with your dirty elbows and screens anymore KG is going to be out That might improve their offense We're in KG's head LOL Refs are just ******** all over the Celtics I feel no sympathy They'll get all the calls in Boston Might as well live it up now I gotta admit As much as I'm loving this, the refs are really favoring us tonight. Doc is right to complain. What you’re witnessing is that Celts aren’t getting away with murder as much. Yo you see the block by. Martin. Grunwald Executive of the Year. Martin has been, by far, the best, 2nd half acquisition. No GM did better. Paul Pierce sucks chants now! Pierce looks done .....And old Doc raises the white flag. Woody kicked his ass tonight. Dam I never seen Celtics beat this bad. Celtics really can't sustain offense for more than a half. Damn it feels good to be a Knick fan right now. LMAO 2 straight games Boston doesn't sniff 80 Lol Celtics broke their own record of a low of 25pts in the 2nd half in a consecutive game. INSANE The Celtics are GARBAGE KG rendered useless tonight. KG still talking sh*t while he's on the bench. Dude doesn't stop mumbling that non-sense. F*ck that dirty clown. Dude screwed himself tonight. He'll be ready for game 3 but without Rondo to create for him he's been mediocre. Just useless on the offensive end. Ain't no mystic or mojo with these Celtics, just a bunch of chumps with no firepower. KG is probably retiring after this. AFTER THIS GAME???? PLEASE! Meaning he will be a Knick next year or do we have to wait a year or two? Ew no I don’t wanna love him Man I doubted the K-Mart signing first time But he’s been awesome I didn't really like those Boston suck chants Should really stick with the KG suck chants instead it's not really the time for that Celtics suck would be better but I know the chant’s always been Boston sucks Lol another franchise low for the Celtics I'm guessing Boston is going to score 21 points in the 2nd half next game? Doc probably just got himself fined. 'I thought 3 fouls on KG were horrendous and completely changed the game' Gotta come out quick in game 3, crush any type of good feeling in that arena [Discuss on CG Forums!]
