Well, this game made my Christmas a bit merrier.  It would have been a lot better if the Lakers and Heat had lost but I'll take a Celtics win any day, especially over these very unlikeable Nets and their fans.  The fact that some of them were complaining about the officiating is laughable, given that they shot 29 free throws to 13 for the Celtics.  Nets fans seem to hate their team and their coach.  Such a sad lot.  I've highlighted my favorite comments in bold.  What are yours?  Let's go Nets! Please put a good ol' Christmas beating on the Celtics. I do not like them. Knicks fan here. I deeply hate the Celtics so... LET'S GO NETS. Celtics fans can go play in traffic while they mispronounce every word that ends in the letter r. ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS... For Hump to start so we can see him fight Rondo again Seasons Beatings!  Let's sweep these suckers!  Hump can go in during garbage time When Nets has annihilated the Celtics and Rondo is still out there padding stats shooting for a triple double. What are the odds we see a Christmas Day brawl? Hopefully 100% and Avery gets into it with KG from some old beef back when Kevin was in Minnesota and Avery gets suspended for at least 10 games I hope Hump start Boston is soft and can’t rebound. The Celtics are green, which is the same color as a Christmas tree.....we're doomed. Thanks Mayans. Bring the pain to girlie-man Rondo and fake tough-guy KG!! “Rondo is the Grinch!” Man Rondo is almost as much as threat as Deron from 3 point territory He has improved Rondo's shooting better from 3 than DWill.  Maybe they'll swap point guards with us.  I'm really getting tired of DWill.  Supposed to be a superstar but plays half a**ed all the time.   How nice would it be if Blatche gains a brain for Christmas? The Nets are embarrassing to watch Whole team is lazy trash at this point Lee still sucks lol About time the refs called the Celtics out for their hold-and-push defense. Their players practically bear hug the opposing team every time down the court. Nets roster is so flawed with such below average coaching Worse refs in the nba if I say anymore ill be banned It's early, but it seems like refs want to gift a nice one to the Celts ...!! God our fans are embarrassingly quiet I'm so tired of.. Goofpez clumsy weak play, and constant whining for foul calls, dude, you’re 265 lbs, mow these clowns out of the way!! Deron I hate you so much worse pg By the way, we are getting killed by Sullinger, let that sink in for a moment We are also getting murdered on the boards by one of the worst rebounding teams in the league. Man, I went to church for nothing. I hope we LOSE. I mean, literally BLOWN OFF THE DAMN FLOOR in the 2nd half. I want this franchise to be embarrassed on national television, and I want the front office to stop dragging their feet and pull the plug on this garbage. Avery has no business coaching, PERIOD. If it takes humiliation for King and Prokhorov to stop sitting on their hands and toss this **** ass hole off of the train, so be it. Collins dunked on this team **** it I'm done WOW what a bullsh*t call. Boston refs are in the building. KG just shoved two people, but gets a small push and gets the call. Just awesome. What is this crap. I feel like punching a Celtic fan. Same feeling, though I feel that way everyday about anything Boston related. This is my first time catching Boston this season Are they always this terrifying on the defensive end or are the Nets (who I have watched most of the season) just especially collapsing today? Awesome how Celts get great looking shot every set Deron and Lopez hot piles of trash This team sucks plain and simple Sullinger out playing Lopez off the bench, and blatche is garbage The Celtics are just a better coached team plain and simple. Celtics are what the Nets are not and may never be with Avery and this group: Their D is awesome and suffocating. They take your first and even second option away. They crowd you and clog the middle and the offense is smooth with so much movement, spacing, and team work. Paul pierce: the TROOF -thanks Jalen How can anyone praise bostons defense They don't even have to move to guard this offense Collins is so dirty If I was crash I wouldve smacked him I hate Dwight for making us stick with Lopez smh Why is Lopez posting up against Garnett? One of the best post defenders ever to play the game? Lopez isnt winning that battle unless he is under the rim. Actually... He lost the battle under the rim also. Shouldn't make judgements vs. This Boston team. Their defense is stiffling. Not really they’re an average defensive team this year Doesn't take much to defend the Nets offense... Collins schooling Lopez hahahahaha The Celtics bench could beat us... that's what good coach does As soon as Doc Rivers sees a run by the other team starting he calls a timeout This isn't on Avery's system. He doesn’t seem to have one. The fact rondo shoots better then dwill says something Get Gerald Green for MarShon. KG illegal screen never gets called Wallace showing some fight and now a real fight maybe, I hate KG Kg acting up as usual Garnnett is a ***** cat everyone knows hes not a lion Yep biggest fake tough guy in the league and one of the all time greats with that Look at all those happy Celtics fans in the crowd Garnett being a b*tch, go to hell Boston Sure lets keep leaving Sullinger open for that jumpshot... **** pathetic. If I had a drink for every time Doris Burke says Sullinger 'can really play' …this game would be much more enjoyable Avery better be fired right after the game "SULLINGER??? WHAT'S A ROOKIE DOING IN CHRISTMAS GAME??" ROOKIES ARE ALLOWED TO PLAY THEIR FIRST YEAR?????? WHAT KIND OF COACH PLAYS ROOKIES???? SMH Celtics 3 Point % nearly identical to Nets free throw % Finally, Deron got called out big time on national TV...he should be embarrassed. Rondo destroyed him tonight, and Rondo didn't even play that well, Deron was just non-existent. Rondo over Lopez. I'm done. Espn showing how Paul pierce is in our building playing it up to all the Celtics fans in attendance, throwing up his Boston shirt Disgusting Rondo over everyone Refs took this game from the nets.…when they called 3 quick fouls on that one possession in the 2nd. No. They didn't. We have played terribly and deserve to lose. Pierce just walked all over the Nets arena I think I heard chants of lets go Celtics I'm embarrassed to be associated with this franchise New city, same garbage . I hate the Celtics. I hate Paul pierce being all jolly My number one concern is dwill Yeah he might be the worse player starting on this team Now He’s D Won’t….. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
