Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Good win for the Celtics. They pulled it out in the end. The Raptors fans are always active on their game threads. They complained about their own players a whole lot more than the Celtics though. I can never get used to fans wishing an injury on a player. It's just so wrong. It's also amazing that probably half of the teams in the league hate their coaches. My favorites are in bold. What are yours?
Raptors win 120-53
I'm still optimistic for the playoffs. Celtics just lost two players ( 1 all star ) . They got lucky with the mini streak, and soon they'll start losing just like they were losing earlier.
Aaron Gray gonna go off on that scrub KG
This is an easy win but the playoffs are long gone.
Despite Rondo averaging so many assists, most of them seem like he pads his stats for assists, kinda like how Jose used to pounds the rock for 20 sec, then all you can do with 4 seconds is take a shot, so its an automatic assist
DD will be a non-factor with Bradley playing, and Jeff Green's defense has been top-notch. But let me guess, Aaron Gray is gonna go off on KG too?
WIN! I hate Boston
Before they got that super team, I liked their grit as a team, but Garnett is just a D-bag, now that team pisses me off more than a good majority of the league
Rudy Gay going to dump all over Paul pierce. Damn the Celtics 103-84 raptors Every gets pizza and goes home happy
I want a win, but I also want to see Ross do a dunk in the face of the demented KG.
Did Leo just say Jeff Green is "like James Worthy in his talent?" Wtf is that idiot smoking.
Does he know James Worthy is a Hof? And yhat Green sucks
You guys hear what Leo is spewing about rudy gay? Comparing him to Dr. J now…
They both… uhh… play basketball?
Gay will have a field day with washed up Pierce
I will be very disappointed if they lose this one especially without Rondo and Sullinger
This is the team I would enjoying demolishing the most out of any team in the league. Crush them.
May we pierce Paul tonight.....pierce him right where it hurts
Bargnani gets an applause? I hope that’s a “great now we can trade you!” type of applause…
Why do I hear cheers when Boston scores....
Can't even guard this scrub lee
Is Gray on KG actually happening??? In what world is that a good idea, unless Casey is getting paid by the Celtics??
3 possessions ruined by Gray! Casey is and will always be an idiot
Courtney lee is the same scrub on the 0-18 Nj nets lmao
Wow...Lee broke Ross ankles
We need someone to shut down Courtney lee hes doing whatever he wants on offense
Nobody out there can guard Lee.
Wow Lee is damn quick
**** Lucas the turd. Get him off the floor
Only person who can open the floor for gray is Moses
Congratulations Raptors, you have a **** stupid coach. **** scrub.
Boston's ball movement is pretty impressive
KG is killing Gray
I hate Anderson with a passion
I can't wait till KG retires
I guess it’s time to add Avery Bradley to the list of guys we were-close-to-but-didn’t-draft; along with D-Wade, Alridge, Bynum, Brandon Jennings and many, many others. Congrats, Avery.
I love this refs!
Why is Paul Pierce not toned at all?
Paul Pierce getting a lot of foul calls.
Who are these jerks in the audience who are always cheering for the other teams??
Celtics have a lot of fans in TO
Celtics are a historic franchise... That existed before the Raptors came in the NBA. I think there are many people in the city who followed ball even before the Raptors.
Their old man game is screwing us youngbucks
Man, Paul Pierce looks like he is about a hundred years old lol
Dude still can ball though.
I think KG and Pierce (alone) can dismantle our whole entire team.
Celtics suck in holding 2nd half leads, raps very much in it
Casey is AGAIN giving this game away! Doc out coached him that 1st half with the rotation match ups!
Who is guarding Courtney Lee? I need to know.
The Toronto Pylons
We're making Bass look like Bosh
I hate the Celtics...
Boston refs are pathetic
These refs are **** horrible PP clearly carried the ball **** off
How the hell are scrubs Bass and Lee killing us
They're not scrubs this is what they do
This loss is on the refs Idc what any1 says
First time the Celts have looked lost without Rondo since he's been out.
Haha Garnett gets called for a phantom foul
Man I hate Boston beat these ****
Courtney Lee is destroying Derozan tonight.
How the hell is a team like Toronto getting favourable calls over Boston
Amn I forgot that there a 4th quarter and the raps are playing
We should trade for Barbosa
He’s as annoying as Ray Allen
Barbosa is really a most aggressive end of game guy Always just jams it down teams throats
He put us in the coffin.... And is trying to hammer in the nails....
I mean...he has always played this way Wonder why teams trade him away. Sems like a perfect bench guy
Jason terry is the king of the fastbreak pullup
Amir looks so tiny beside KG... And KG is skinny.
Wow that was pretty beautiful ball movement by Boston
**** you Barbosa
Barbosa really wants to stick it to us lol damn that turned around quick.
Barbosa is better than our whole bench put together... He clearly came back with a vengeance
I HATE when former Raptors go off on us...
That was some great action, Pierce should go into showbizz after he retires
Refs pretty much ruined the game for the raps
Dude, all you do is wails on the refs, if you watched the game you'd realize that they are not the problem tonight.
i hate KG
KG's a legend
KG with Ice in his veins
HOW ARE YOU LOSING TO THIS OLD WORTHLESS CRIPPLES
KG is just unstoppable so automatic I hope he breaks a leg
KG's footwork is beautiful to watch.
HOFers don't age like regular human beings.
Damn KG still got it
Pierce laughing at Rudy and his new team
Bright side is Boston will probably lose tomorrow night against the Lakers
Kg and PP are hall of famers
I am soo mother ****ing fed up with this toothless ****ing rotting piece of **** franchise!!

Paul Pierce wants to play basketball with you. No, seriously. The Celtics’ captain was not impressed by the trampoline-aided aerial acrobatics of Lucky, the team’s mascot, but he is excited at the prospect of playing “H-O-R-S-E” with a “real” Celtics fan. A game from the Massachusetts Lottery offers a chance to play with Pierce, plus other prizes. Check out Pierce’s...
If you missed this game, wow I feel bad for you. Tonight was a vintage Paul Pierce game, led by an offensive explosion in the third quarter. The first half played at a much slower pace, dominated by the refs but the Celtics had the game in their control all night. Pierce led the Celtics with 24 and Bean was the leading scorer for the Flakers with 27. The Truth was obviously jacked...
BOSTON — This was not just another game. When the Celtics and Lakers play, even if their cumulative records are below .500 and their seasons have been more disappointing than triumphant, nobody in green or purple tries to give the old sports trope about every game counting the same. This game means a little extra, especially to Paul Pierce, born and raised in Inglewood, Calif....
Awesome round of quotes today from Celtics coach Doc Rivers, captain Paul Pierce, and center Kevin Garnett on the ongoing trade rumors that seem to pop up by the day. The most recent round of rumors have Kevin Garnett heading to Los Angeles for Clippers guard Eric Bledsoe and forward Caron Butler. What do the Celtics think of these rumors? Let's start with Doc.
All from (the...
The Boston Celtics have won their last 5 games since Rondo went down with a torn ACL. The general consensus was that without Rondo and the advanced age of the Celtics, hopes of a title this season are effectively older. Celts head coach Doc Rivers said not to count the team out but at least one member of the franchise has acknowledged that he’s not willing to apart of a team that’s...
When Celtics All Star Rajon Rondo was lost to a season ending injury he was dominating the NBA in triple doubles, even posting one in each of his final two games. In Boston’s first contest without Rondo, Paul Pierce managed a trible double of his own. During the C’s 5 game winning streak Pierce has continually put up some very Rondo-esque numbers. His scoring is down...
Sure, the rumors are fun, but Celtics President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, shot them down Thursday when asked about the much talked about trade assets, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. He stated comfortably, that the most likely scenario is that the two will not be traded at the deadline.
According to ESPN:
On if he’s comfortable saying that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce...
Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers says the recent trade rumors around the teams star players have all been made up by the media. "All from [the media]," the Celtics' coach said

The familiar ''Beat LA!'' chant started in the third quarter.
It's easier to do that now than it was during most of the Lakers-Celtics rivalry. But there's still something special when the teams who have met in a record 12 NBA Finals face each other, even if they've been struggling just to reach the playoffs.
''No matter what direction these...
I am on record saying that the Celtics window has closed and it is time to blow up the team. KG and Paul Pierce would be considered valuable assets to teams who are in a position to make a NBA Finals run. Every trade should be explored by Danny Ainge at this point.
KG has a no trade clause, but from these quotes it appears if the right trade came around he would be interested....
