Another good win for the Celtics.  I love opposing fans that admit that the refs are helping them.  Lots of love for Sully, and well deserved.   Respect for Avery as well, again, well deserved.   I've highlighted my favorites in bold.  What are yours?  Run, run, run and we should win. Boston prefers a slower pace. KG tries to start a fight with Toney. We win by 11. Greg Smith tells KG his wife smells like frankenberries.... Please...Rockets players...no hounding of Garnet after the game  A trap games, Lin will be exposed. Nothing more to expose now: can't go left, no jumpshot, no defense, turnover prone, slow....but DECEPTIVE in all of the above Garnett will eat Lin alive and tell Parsons that Lin tastes like Rice Krispies. Snap! Crackle! Pop! Just rest em up for Saturday. Avery is gonna lock up Harden, nobody else will do anything. The defensive combo of Bradley and Rondo will shut/slow down this teams biggest strength. We need to run this slow team out of the building, and the win is ours. Lin will swim through the sweaty slimy screens set by the meat water fountain KG and Harden's beard becomes a sag bag of KG sweat. We will win this. Anyone know if any players are suspended from Boston? Seems like they have been causing some trouble as of late. This will be a tempo battle. The Celtics play slow, ugly, disgusting, putrid, shameful (feel free to add your own words here) Eastern Conference basketball. The Rockets do not. I hope Courtney Three has himself a good game(and smiles a lot) but goes home with a L. where's that 3pt shot Courtney? You left it in Houston, and morris picked it up I hate Jason Terry Felt like that needed to be stated. The Celts Have the Starters, We Have the Bench........ If we can play even with the Celts starters, our bench should be able to be the difference. Easier said than done. Celts bench has much improved over the last month. Please bump refs some more this game Rondo! Avery Bradly is really good Brandon Bass....potential Rocket after the Trade Deadline Bradley just having his way with Harden.. I have a feeling harden will have a hard time scoring tonight Only a matter of time before Harden makes Bradley look useless. Team looks fresh...run those geezers off the court! That shot by Rondo as ugly as the Rockets playing Jason Collin Collin Twins will always have a job Bradley getting owned Harden gets so many and-1 I love it. Watch Avery Bradley's off ball defense He is one of the best at denying passes. He doesn’t steal a whole bunch, but he gets up right at the time of the ball stoppage Boston sucks This is like watching full court golf. Game is soooooo slow hnnnngggh Boston is such a miserable team to watch. Unlike last game, the refs are calling a lot tonight. Haha Harden got Bradley where he wants him. 2 fouls Rondo is so good at driving the lane. i hate it. he can shoot all day id leave him open but dont let him drive. 2 fouls on PP and AB is huge. Seriously asik wtf I know understand why mchale doesn't play him down the stretch sorry mchale for doubting u even Dwight and shaq never go 0/4 Wish we took Sullinger over Royce Man I totally forgot that Jason terry is on the Celtics MAN **** JASON TERRY Uh oh..Courtney lee warming up Courtney Lee finding his form against us...grrrrr Trade Tony Douglas before his value goes rock bottom again Passes up open shoot then travels I coulda sworn we were good... Rockets look flat tonight. Luckily the Celtics don't look great either Sulliger, the Rockets could have this guy instead of Royce White. Sullinger is a stud. Too bad he lights it up against us. Sullinger destroying us Best I've seen Jeff Green play in a while. Oh my God....Greensanity Harden has made some outside shots, but the Celts defend him as well as any team this season. But he has the beard! Celts bench is coming around. Damn you Courtney lee I LOVED YOU I still love you Courtney Lee Sullinger Only Fell To The Cs Because Of His Lack of Height and Athleticism However he can defnitely play This Celtics bench has a quite a different game from their starters More fluid, more outside shots They don't take Geritol or Viagra Maybe I Was Wrong About the Bench.......... I thought we had an advantage there, but the Celts bench gave them the lead. Can someone please punch Jason Terry in the face A lot. 32 first half bench points for Boston... What.. The... F***... They woke the crowd up I wish Houston's crowd could get as loud as Boston's. Every other arena has active crowds…I couldn’t even hear my own thoughts during the last run by the C’s…Houston fans have no heart… Sullinger reminds me of a lot of Charles Barkley...a fat ass that can ball. Celts Set Great Screens......... The ball is one ahead of the rotation. Great coaching. Hard to believe someone can be +22 in midway through the second quarter But Courtney Lee is… Four guys around Sullinger, and he shovels it in. Ridiculous Only the Rockets could make Sullinger look like a beast Geewhiz, getting outplayed by a rookie Because doc trusts rookies We have 2 good ones that never get any run at all Core Boston players are a collection of *****. Avery is great at defence and those double teams are vicious Rivers staple, and Avery is one of the best defenders in the league. Lin gets calls in Boston They're calling a lot this game we’re just getting outplayed We Drafted Royce White..........We could have drafted Jared Sullinger…………. I almost wish we had Juwan back. He would be a father figure to the team. Or maybe we could find Shawn Kemp – he might literally be someone’s father. Harden, why you keep passing off? Grrr Maybe because it's the Celtics Wall Sullinger's butt will keep DMo on the floor the whole time I can't even tell who is guarding Green, because he's always open. They are running around like a bunch of headless McChickens. Boston offense= Wonderful assortment of screens, picks, and movement to facilitate the offense. Houston offense= Grade A, one-one-one garbage. Can someone keep sullinger out of the paint pls? Didn't realize Sullinger was the next Moses Malone... Celtics arent stupid, they know harden is the only player ion this team worth a ****.. Why is sullinger rebounding like Kevin love? Sullinger is a beast. Rookie Sullinger is dominating every Rockets front court player. Pathetic. He's legit. He does this often. Sullinger out working everyone and the catalyst for all of this Their defense is killing us.. I have an idea, lets leave Paul Pierce open for 3, he isn't knon for his shooting. Rondo's game is so one-dimensional that anybody with bball IQ can shut him down pretty easily. It's Rondo's teammates killing us, in particular Sullinger on the offensive glass. The fact that we have to find a way to shut down Jared Sullinger is pretty sad... Boston bench is doing much better than ours. Jared Sullinger was incredible. One thing I like about a rookie like Sullinger is that he showed up to training camp. Always a plus. Nuthin like a bunch of Asian guys in Celtic green booing Jeremy Lin Boston games are often boring, that's the annoying thing about slow paced half court teams who focus on defense. 50% of KG's game is his jawing. Ignore him Asik. Then punch him after the W. Celtics picked now to get better. Most unlikable team in the league. Who said Pierce is due to get hot? I hate you now And Garnett has never committed a foul. In all these years. Refs are crap Nah its not the refs they’re pretty fair this game Yeah they are. They are clearly favoring Houston. You can't complain every call Boston Apparently you can actually I cant express how much I hate Boston sports Boston is a pretty slappy team, especially Garnett kg sets horrible screens they are all leg Someone should try to run through his leg really hard, then when his knee pops he'll stop The Celtics are getting away with a ton of fouls under the guise if it being “physical play” And this is what Boston was supposed to look like this year – old guys playing well, young guys bringing energy and D. Wish they’d picked another night. Great foul there by Lee. Always been a smart player like that I miss Lee Hate seeing an offensive foul But getting Rondo to crash to the floor is a good consolation prize KG making some ridiculous shots right now. Refs actually helping us Man thank god we aren’t playing a good team or we’d be getting blown out right now. We got this with Sullinger in foul trouble Pierce... Stop being clutch Rub that smug face off Rajon Reptile Rondo. These foul calls are terrible both ways. Paul Pierce can die in a car fire. Best Defense Against Us All Season.......... This is not the same Celts team we faced earlier this season. We should waste a few possessions and just fire balls at the refs like dodgeball I hate losing to teams we're better than I've never heard announcers complain about refs like this I thought you could get fined? Garnett just held smith down with one arm What a beast Maybe the team caught the "suck ass" bug from the Lakers Out rebounded by Boston of all teams. That's just disgraceful. Terrible officiating. Rigged. Well against all odds, the Celtics managed to beat the better team, maybe the Texans can as well. Maybe we can insult Tom Brady's wife Avery Bradley is pretty special on defense it’s one thing to know what he does, quite another to do what he does. He doesn’t use his anticipation for steals, he uses it to prevent you from getting the ball, and he really uses his body well [Discuss on CG Forums!]
