Originally written on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.  |  Last updated 10/17/13
Raptors fans were impressed with hometown product Kelly Olynyk who played very well in this game.  They were not quite as impressed with Jared Sullinger.  It seems as though the NBA community is split between feeling the Celtics are lottery bound and expecting them to make the playoffs.  Truth is, nobody really knows what to expect from this team.   One thing they know is that they'd rather have Stevens than Casey as a coach.  Enjoy today's comments..... I would be shocked if this wasn't a W. They played the nets down to the wire last night. Impressed they stayed close to Brooklyn all game. I'm curious to see how the Boston Tankics play this season. Rondo, Oly and a few others will be spared while others are dealt for picks, etc. They should be "back" in a few years when their players have matured. Only game this week unfortunately, a rematch against the Celtics... At least this time it's home commentary as opposed to Heinsohn The Celtics offense is disturbing to watch. Their interior D is puke-tastic.....They can #TankForParker. Not sure why the majority of the basketball community has written the Celtics off. The Celtic's interior d may be bad, but they still have one of the best perimeter defences, it's gonna be hard for them to bottom out without losing any veterans. Yeah, a core of Rondo/Bradley/Green/Wallace is decent enough to keep them out of the cellar, even competitive, but considering how young the frontcourt is I'm guessing at least a couple of those guys will be dealt. Another pointless game against a garbage team, and sadly we might even lose I hope we won't have to watch the Boston feed again. Listening to Tommy Heinsohn probably shaved off a good 5 years of my life already. Haha Fatty Gay was almost rim stuffed on that last dunk Sully in full chuck mode tonight Celts look like they didn't sleep last night... Olynytzki Marshon brooks looks baked Its pretty much our starters going against Boston's depth in this game. Olynyk is legit Olynyk is shredding us inside. Can't imagine how this lineup would get smashed in the reg. Season Olynyk is killing them. Kid has skills 12+pt lead turned into a 6 point deficit... With Boston missing its 3 best players Is it weird that I cannot tell the Celtics bench from their starters Olynyk's skillset is awesome, he's just gotta work on his defence and he'll be a good starting PF for years to come. Can we swap coaches.... Why all the Casey hate? He is a true Tank commander. You should be proud of his tank abilities Man Brad Stevens seems like the nicest guy in the world Are we playing Celtics' starters or bench? I am a little confused Crawford talking smack at our bench in a pre-season game? Wow, we really don't get respect, do we? We can't be a team that scrubs **** on. How are we going to out tank the Celtics? I really like what I'm seeing from Olynyk Damn, I forgot Abby Chin is on the Boston feed. Might have to switch. Did you know? The Toronto Raptors' star forward Austin Daye hasn't gained weight since the age of 12. It was also the last time he played any defense. - Marshon Brooks is playing terrible That #26 on Boston is really awful. He's like their version of Augustin I like how Faverani palms the ball before he takes fts. Olynyk is gonna be a good player in this league Wiggins is going to Boston. Look at their starting lineup. it's on par with our bench... And our bench is horrible. Lmao sullinger so fat and unathletic Either the Celtics or the lakers are getting wiggins. Mark my words! Did you guys know that Olynk's dad cut Steve Nash from the junior national team back in 93'. Celt's bench can't beat a wnba team. We gave Boston the game. They blew it with their key bench players Good thing Jordan Crawford is a scrub [Discuss on CG Forums!]
