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 back to back (after a win). Nets at home, rested. We should smack them if you factor all of that They are still the Celtics. And the Nets are still a mess right now. I want to see Rondo play in this game, we need another test we failed Miami too badly. Should be a good game. KG is a damn good player, but he and Bass are jump shooters. I don't envision them having monster games. Paul Pierce on the other hand... We are hungry and just as talented as them …. They eff’d up when they smacked us in the preseason because now they got our 100% attention If we blow them out its because they didn't have rondo If we win a close game we would’ve lost had they had rondo If we lose we’ll never hear the end of it O/U 20% Celtic fans in attendance. Over They have a lot of fans Yep. Plus, it is a bandwagon league. Over I went to the Pre Season game and pretty much everyone around me was wearing green. Heck even my friend was wearing green I predict Jeff Green getting fouled by Keith Bogans at the buzzer to get 3 free throws to tie up the game. Jeff Green is very meh. So, he’s good for about 25 tonight. All this hate on Jeff Green He would be perfect as our starting 4 / back up 3 Celtics being cheered during intros Boos being pumped from sound system I'm embarassed Dwill needs to ABUSE Barboso Celtics are really depleted I see the back of Bogans' head and I always wonder why Avery is playing Sam Cassell. Johnson is a good matchup defensively on Pierce Pierce just scored on 3 nets TNT wants to hate on the Nets soooo bad This crowd should be louder I can hear cheers when Boston scores We just had a great sequence “block + 3 on the other end” and crowd barely made a squeek I feel like TNT is drowing out the crowd when the nets do something good But they amplify it when Boston scores No rondo, Celtics sucks Once we get a legit PF our team will go onto another level Celtics are an absurdly different team without Rondo Yeah, most people underrate Rondo so much He is incredible. Big leads scare me Small leads scare me even more Nets game in general just scares me Def a health ris Boston has some brick layers. Boston's days are numbered... Let's see them with Rondo first Rondo is their last hope, but rondo is flawed Now we just need to learn to play defense They have nobody to defend except old Garnett The Celtics are still a good team without Rondo Nets outplayed them clearly , but Boston is only down 5 Doc Rivers sounds so dumb when he talks How he is a “good” coach is beyond me. Lee just sucks. I hate Courtney lee Blatche has brutal shot selection. /Somewhere a sad Wizards fan nods in agreement None of our guards can stop anyone If Rondo were playing we would be in trouble We need a basketball break from all these commercials! The Knicks game doesn't entertain me at all Because they’re the Knicks, and I don’t care what happens to them. Unless they’re facing the Nets, then I hope they die. I swear if Darko goes off I will be extremely peeved Twin is frustrating Lopez Crowd is pretty dull as usual Who else is not surprised at all Barbosa is having his best game of the year? Why is Brooks on the bench? Planning his next Splash Mountain trip with Robin? Barbosa refusing to let Bogans help him up He tried to make it seem like he was getting choked Exactly Flopping warning That was a terrible pass by Deron but Bogans with the awesome choke How is that not a flagrant? Terrible call Love doc rivers. Wish we had him Haha Bogans choking Barbosa "shhhhhh go to sleep" -Keith bogans That was definitely a flagrant. We're getting bailed out of absolutely abysmal offense with terrible calls. There is just something about Courtney Lee that makes me so angry. After all of his crying and whining about losing the privilege of playing for a contender early in his career, he winds up in Boston. That's why every time I see Courtney with the ball i’m literally booing him at home. No one else understands why but i’mma keep doing it. Cry Baby. Wished Bogans would’ve put him in a sleeper hold instead of Barbosa. I like Bogan's hard fouls Celtics have to admit they are BS without Rondo But Rondo is no LeBron, so they are still useless SHUT UP DOC RIVERS That was not a foul. There are honestly more Celtics fans than nets fans Oe ohnson needs to get that shot back What you did there I see it OF COURSE Pierce gets a bank 3 Ridiculous. Changes the game. Be careful of the old monster If there are this many Boston fans here tonight I would hate to have seen the opener. Would have been embarrassing. If I were an official there is no way I would tolerate Doc's incessant whining Doc is working the refs over , they'll start getting more calls soon. How are the Celtics beating the Nets down the court EVERY TIME!!!! And they are going for defensive boards The 3rd quarter strikes again What the hell do these guys do during half time? Lawrence Frank calls them on skype I feel like Frank's entire tenure is marked by 3rd Quarter collapses The amount of Celtic fans, this is pathetic ! Nets fans suck! I want Pierce fouled out I'm not gonna be a Nets fan in my 40s or 50s Too much heart risk Second game of a back to back without Rondo No excuses it's throwback night at Barclay's Cheers from opposing crowds, 3rd quarter collapses, Jason Collins… Avery Johnson sucks so badly Whatever this game was supposed to be a test of... We've failed it, regardless of the outcome. Right now the nets are being outplayed because Avery is being outcoached Imagine if Boston had Rondo We also don't have Wallace Ya rondo is better than Wallace but still…. rondo’s overrated in my opinion anyway My cousins are tweeting me everytime fat Paul pierce shot. Please win this game. So I can actually make a reasonable rebuttal. Thank God, Doc called a timeout, Avery should've been called one I hate Paul Pierce Don't understand how the Celtics can push the ball with no true point guard Maybe Rondo's just not that good Maybe the Nets just aren't that good Maybe, maybe not but Rondo is still overrated. I'm so angry and what I'm currently watching This is the most pathetic offense I’ve seen all year. Why? It’s the same offense we’ve seen all year. Except this is against a good defensive team and a good coach. If I was the Nets Owner Avery is getting FIRED tonight Just win I think you underestimate how difficult of a task that is for the Nets Even with Rondo and Bradley in suits Stupid Boston fans show up everywhere Celtics Courtney Lee just outrebounded Brook Lopez. BROOK LOPEZ. THAT IS EMBARRASSING. Courtney Lee is annoying I wouldn't be mad if someone headbutted him right now Deron sucks Someone needs to get on him about his conditioning Cant tell if marv Albert is oblivious, old, or dumb Why does our offense look so much worse in crunch time Its Boston D it makes anyteam look out of order The win would be nice but this game tells me a lot about the Nets We are just not ready. Rondoless Celtics on a second of a back to back… this should not be this intense Celtics when Rondo gets healthy and Bradley gets back Gonna be too much for us unless we really click They never notice KG's illegal screens It’s been a problem ever since he came into the league. Pierce is the most disturbing player in the NBA Amazing player Not a player u wanna see on the opposing team Pierce is forever a nets killer Rondo did not even play. This game should not have been close. THE TRUTH For some reason I cant hate Pierce But it's so easy to. Win or lose, we have the worst coach in the NBA. No doubt about it. Nice win but lets keep it in perspective…rondo didn’t play…okay time to go party Pierce indeed is a HOFer Props Boston. You should've won tonight. We got calls all game long. I'm happy we won, but it makes me nervous to think about how this game was actually close with the Celtics being rondo-less [Discuss on CG Forums!]
