Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
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…..

Above are the video highlights from Fab Melo's 32 point, 9 rebound, and 9 block game against the Idaho Stampede. Hopefully when Melo gets recalled from the D-League, he can use all the experience he got as a confidence builder and can perform well for the Celtics. We could really use his size.

Ok now this is getting a bit ridiculous...
Dear Mr. Green,
I would like to start off by saying how truly sorry I am for my actions over the past two months since the start of the 2012-13 NBA Regular season. I took the time prior to the Celtics Christmas Day game against the Brooklyn Nets to watch the ESPN feature on you and your recovery from heart surgery. I must admit that for the majority of this season I have been nothing...
Over at MassLive.com, where Celtics Town authoritarian dictator (just kidding) Jay King gets paid to write about sports, Jay posted an interesting article on how Boston’s full-team plus/minus improves immensely when Jared Sullinger plays with the starters in place of Brandon Bass and/or Jason Collins.From Masslive.com:“Consider this: During the 197 minutes when Sullinger has...
In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again. Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
I love that title, because the C’s sure have looked like they’ve had none at times this year. And as a Celtics fan, I expect the best every year, and we just haven’t seen it yet. So what’s it going to take...
After spending four years crafting a reputation as one of the NBA's best teams in November and December, the Boston Celtics have found the last two seasons to be rather unkind when it comes to getting out of the blocks quickly, with early hardship coming to define them in their old age.
It started last year when, without a training camp to rely on, coach Doc Rivers' past...
All you Rajon Rondo fans are in for a treat. As far as the other 99% of NBA fans just bear with me.
Artist and basketball fan Davide Zomer from Trento, Italy created a self-initiated mock logo design for Rondo aka the engine that runs the Boston Celtics. You might want to check it out if you like this sort of stuff…
A Look at the Boston Celtics Match-ups in California The Boston Celtics say goodbye to 2012 from sunny California after kicking off a four game road trip by administering a Christmas Day beating to the Brooklyn Nets. The West Coast swing, in particular the first two games against the Los Angeles Clippers and the [...]
For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...
BOSTON — Paul Pierce gave Jason Collins his game ball, everybody clapped and that was pretty much that. A few days later, Pierce’s token of recognition for the veteran center’s hard work was all but forgotten for many members of the Celtics, who were much more impressed with the 40-point performance that earned Pierce the game ball in the first place.
But for Collins, the gesture...
Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care.
The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat. This backhanded compliment came after Sullinger had a career-day on Christmas, going six-for-seven shooting with 16 points and seven rebounds.
“Jared was wonderful. He’s such a smart...
As you guys know, I live in San Francisco but am originally from Long Beach. I am here right now visiting my family and old friends. What I heard recently was pretty shocking. Most of the Laker fans here have told me they will be rooting for the Celtics tonight so the Clippers streak will end. I can not believe it. I would root for anyone to beat the Lakers and that would even mean...
Nothing is ever promised, but for all the Brooklyn Nets’ improvements in the last year and a half, they figured to remain a reliable victim for the Celtics entering this season.
Even after two meetings and two Celtics’ losses, all the ingredients were there to make the Nets a match made in heaven for Boston. They were a slow-paced team that defended poorly and was prone to bad...
Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
