Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Surprised to see so much Big Baby hate. I've felt that the Celtics got the best of the deal but I though Baby was doing pretty well there. Guess not. A lot of ref complaints but I thought the refs missed stuff on both sides but didn't favor either. Of course, what would a CFTOS be without a Paul Pierce wheelchair reference? My favorite comments are in bold. What are yours?
OMG! Sounds like there are plenty of Celtics homers in attendance at Amway Center tonight.
I don't expect to win this one, nonetheless I think the if Magic can limit the turnovers we have a chance.
I'm looking forward to this game as I want to see how we stack up against one of the premier teams in the Eastern Conference.
I wouldn't say that Celtics are a premier team ATM at 7 and 6, but they are tough and if Rondo gets going it could spell disaster.
Jameer wont let us win..he always takes over against Boston
Without Dwight protecting the paint, I fully expect Rondo to absolutely shred our defense.
Trap game for Boston could lead to a nice win for our Magic!
I'm hoping KG bullies Vucevic. I think it'd be good for Vooch
I hope playing Boston doesn't mean 30 fga for Baby
Glen is going to finish with 50 shot attempts
If Pierce is out there, Pierce’s man has to stay GLUED to Pierce.
Jameer, don't try to split a double team when Rondo is on the floor. He will steal it.
Bad call on Pierce.
Bass > Baby so far
BBD looks completely uninterested in the game already, and it isnt even one quarter in.
Rondo making Nelson look silly.
Rondo holds the ball for 22 seconds, passes it to a player that throws up a prayer, assist
I love how the ref just blatantly ignored Redick's foul attempt on Lee just now
We still love you Courtney Lee
Sullinger -- the guy I wanted the Magic to take.
Barbosa is on the Celtics? Hm, good fit
Yeahhh that Barbosa guy, might wanna cover him. Just a thought.....
They seem to have a roster full of quick guards With Rondo, Terry, Lee, Barbosa, and Bradley when he comes back
No Pass Bass with another jumper
The Magic coaching staff should hire a designated "ref conversation rebuttle guy" who’s sole job is to follow the refs around the sidelines and when an opposing coach/players starts jawing at the ref, they jump in and rebut/mock whatever they are saying. They wouldn’t complain for the Magic in any way, simply disrupt any conversation the opposing side attempts to have with the refs.
So we'd troll the opposing team and the refs? I can get behind this.
Barbosa and Rondo are the leading scorers? Didn’t expect that to happen.
As usual, Celtics getting away with everything.
I cant stand pierce, retire fool
This pro-Celtics officiating is getting annoying.
These refs are trash. But its a Celtic game so it isn't surprising.
Pierce getting greedy. He already has a few very questionable calls that went his way. Not sure what they're complaining about there.
Why is ayon and mcroberts playing more than vuc and harkless?
We're trying to showcase them for Pheonix in trade for Gortat?
We need to kill that Gortat mess. Word on the street is he's losing minutes to his backup Jermaine O'neal why would we want to trade for him if we don't have an all-world point guard to make him look better than he really is?
Rondo picking us apart, everywhere.
BBD IS BAD
Man Rondo is too good
Man I hate Paul Pierce. I swear if that's not a flagrant...
Geez. How old is that ref?
Ok so you got Josh Mcroberts guarding Paul Pierce and he's getting blown by every single time. Uhh Coach?
Getting abused by sullinger, terrible
JJ became a much better player than clee. I'm impressed
What is bbd doing.. God I hate this clown..
Can't decide if we made a mistake passing on sully. I like Nicholson but he doesn't have the nba body that sully has
JJ vs Jameer in a Jello wrestling match, who wins?
Big Baby. I'm sure he likes Jello.
BBD is the Jello.
Stop sullinger already
Pierce trying to draw a foul. What a punk.
Always. Surprised we didn’t see the wheelchair.
He flops verbally The league should penalize that as well
Rondo is such a stat padding idiot
Officiating could be the difference here.
There is no reason for them to favor us.. No star, being Boston ect. I fully expected it.
BBD could be the difference. Cant shoot.. Cant play D.. Cant reb.. At least he is getting to the line.
Dear god trade big baby
I get so sick of Garnett and his fake tough guy BS.
Well I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to fight him...
HOW IS THAT NOT Y UNO??????? All you hear is hand slapping skin. I mean that is awful officiating. Clearly hear it and see it.
Easy, Dick Bavetta is both death and blind
I was afraid of this. Classic Jameer. He makes some shots and then thinks he can shoot it from the parking lot.
Pierce with the pump fake/head flail and he'll get fouled.. Book it
I hate Baby so much oh my god
In the 3rd quarter, KG scored on BBD early on, I'm not 100% sure but it looks like KG mouths "you don't have what it takes"...I'd really like KG to forward that in an e-mail to JV for us. Something from a peer in the league like that might help to sway JV's decision with regard to playing him.
KG is a beast. One of the greatest PFs of all time.
I hate Paul Pierce.
I agree never liked him he flops on offense and dwfense but always gets the call.
Lmao kg swatted when he was on the ground
Haha my god Garnet is such a tool. And to think I liked him when he was in Minny.
Can we go to hack a rondo?
Good thing he (Rondo) can pass, he's a horrible shooter
BBD with a 3? I just threw up….
I know it doesn't matter, but a part of me loathes that Big Baby ended up with a 3 there.
LMAO love it a Big Baby 3.....................its like might as well hand the ball over to Boston at that point.
On the bright side, we took a good team to the brink, but still lost so Operation Tank is unaffected.
Orlando Magic 2012-13 Tanking Guide.
Rule 1 - If a game is close, give Glen Davis the ball and he will take a three point attempt. Thus ensuring victory to the other team.
Sucks to lose games like this, I cant stand that team.
It annoys me how many idiot bandwagon Laker and Celtic fans show up at our games.
Trade Big Baby for a 2nd round pick in 2084.
At least we can laugh at Rondo

He submitted a forgettable first half against the younger, quicker, more agile Thunder. But, when the third quarter started, the captain stamped his imprint on the game, ripping off seven straight points (a fallaway...
Paul Pierce is one smooth player. Jeff Green and Kris Joseph can learn a lot from him. Probably a big reason why Joseph was back at practice today.

This is just totally embarassing for Celtics' Paul Pierce and it came courtesy of Magic's Jameer Nelson.
Let's set it up:
The scene: Orlando, FL, Amway Center
The victim: Boston's Paul Pierce
The outcome: Pierce gets decimated by a hesitation move by Nelson which causes his ankle to get shattered along with his knee to buckle.
Though Boston and Pierce would...
Year after year, Paul Pierce has been a foundational rock for the Boston Celtics. Throughout his career, he has filled a myriad of roles and willed his team to wins in the clutch, but his game has evolved over time. Always a crafty player, "The Truth" has fine-tuned his post game, hesitation dribble, ball fakes, step-backs, and jump shot in order to stay competitive despite...
Also, I forgot to note, we could have traded Paul Pierce to the Clippers and maybe got some draft pics and prospects. I am just sayin!
Comment and debate!

BOUND FOR THE FLOOR
Paul Pierce had a good game in their 116-110 overtime victory over the Magic Sunday night. But while Pierce poured in 23 points on the offensive end, all we want to talk about is how he almost lost a leg on the defensive end to a crossover dribble from Magic guard Jameer Nelson.
Gotta move those feet, Paul.
The post Here’s Jameer Nelson hitting Paul Pierce with a crossover that...
Paul Pierce has done this a million times. Early in games, late in games, in the middle, it does not matter when. Pierce knows exactly how to finish things off and how to brush off any failures. When he stepped into a wide-open 3-pointer with 2:10 left in overtime to break a 108-108 tie, it was old hat for him.
For the Magic, it is not quite second nature to win these close games...
Jameer Nelson pulled off one of the most simple non-crossovers I have seen in quite sometime, and it sent Paul Pierce tumbling to the ground. Check out how Pierce’s legs just buckled underneath him as Jameer created more than space. Paul was forced to pick up his jock-strap following the embarrassment.
And yes, Jameer missed the shot.

Fantastic crossover by the one time all star point guard, Jameer Nelson. Unfortunately, you need to sink the basket or at least take the ball to the hole if you are going to leave your defender looking like he just had his leg chopped off by a zombie. Or a fat person falling and not getting up.

A lot of people aren't that high on Joseph, because he doesn't have the Sportcenter athleticism, but I like the kid and I think he has an NBA future. So far Jospeh has played well in Summer League, preseason, and now in the D-League. I like how he filled out the stat sheet yesterday (8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 blocks, and 2 steals, to go along with the 28 points). I would...
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Kevin Garnett had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Paul Pierce added 23 points and Rajon Rondo was one rebound shy of a triple double with 15 points and 16 assists as the Boston Celtics outlasted the Orlando Magic 116-110 in overtime Sunday night.

Courtney Lee is shooting 60% from 16-23 ft.
The Celtics are struggling defensively so far this season, allowing 101.1 points per game (last year they gave up just 89.3 PPG). In fact, it's so bad that the team's home page currently features an article entitled "Are the Celts Experiencing an Identity Crisis?"
However, the offense is picking up some of the slack...
Every year I try to make it to the Garden as many times as I can to watch the Celtics play. Basketball, more so than any other sport in my opinion, is so much fun to watch in person. To be able to see first hand just how much bigger, stronger and faster these players are than us “normals” is the only way I think you can truly appreciate what happens night in and night out...
