Originally written March 06, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
Good road win for the Celtics.  The Sixers have had it rough with injuries this season.  Poor Sixers fans want to root for a loss for more ping pong balls but they hate the Celtics so much that they are torn about it. Great game by Bradley.   I've highlighted a few favorites.  What are yours?  All the teams are tanking right now. Very hard to make progress in draft order. Every loss is important. Still don't know why we beat GS, and then we were happy about it. I SOOOO want us to lose every game, but even I am debating hoping for a win because I despise the Celtics I know that feeling... Its like supporting the tank route tonight would on some level require me to cheer for the Celtics.... I just don't think I can do it. I don't care how bad our team may be this season. The disdain for the likes of Pierce, Garnett, and the rest of the green is strong. F*** you, Boston and more specifically you, Danny Ainge. Hey guys, let’s talk about everything “relevant” in basketball, oh and by the way, I guess there’s this sixers/Celtics game. Garnett can score on hawes all day Damn, so far Boston is making our team look decent… so they’re playing bad defense at the start of the game lol it’s sad… but all I want right now is losses and lots of minutes for Moultrie… may be some decent showing sby Turner so we can get a good return in the offseason… Too many Celtic fans here Another Pearce foul.. Bye bye Why is Wilkins taking shots? Why is he even playing, he sucks. Definitely getting no whistles… Turner clearly got fouled, but oh well… losses . This team is painful to watch So thts not a foul? Guy had both hands on Evan's back they get a call tho Its amazing how jrue and turner are allowed to get hammered and not get calls smh Don't know what it is going to take.. There is an art to getting calls when you are not a superstar... Just scream like ******** Paul pierce... Screaming alone will raise your fouled percentage atleast 20% Turner screams like a ***** all the time tho So holiday is doubled and ALL OUR GUYS JUST RUN TO A CORNER AND WATCH!?!?!? Here's a question: If the Celtics and Knicks meet in the Playoffs, who are you rooting for (or against the most)? Personally I'd be siding more with Boston. I can't stand the Knicks players and their fans to a point where Boston doesn't bother me that much. This would be a nightmare situation..... It wouldn’t surprise me if KG’s FG% is over 70% when Hawes is guarding him DID HOLIDAY SERIOUSLY NOT JUST GET A CALL THERE!??!?!??! HE LITERALLY GOT TOMAHAWKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy **** I hate nba refs omfg **** them all Evan creates contact and still doesn't get the whistle. It might b his crying tht is killing him Wow KG missed a shot with Hawes guarding him Did you see KG grab his arm and hold on on EMT's last drive? Peeps have done jail time for less and - no call. I know the Celtics fans have to love Avery Bradley. He's already one of the best defenders in the league, can shoot the ball a little and is a good athlete. He's definitley a nice player to have. Bradley's defense is absolutely remarkable. A nice start But the Celtics have taken control, I guess that’s not bad, unless, of course, the Sixers are still trying to make the playoffs, I’m not sure “I don’t want to be questioning his work ethic, but it seems like he doesn’t want to play”- Shaq on Bynum, blatantly questioning his work ethic Not saying he’s an idiot, but Shaq is dumber than the average person Bradley still outplaying jrue Paul Pierce=such a prick the c’s look so lazy today The Celts lull you away into a false sense of security Please put us out of our misery Celts Celtics make so many jumpers So Avery Bradley can shoot? They can pull baseball bats out and crack u upside our heads and the refs still wouldn't call anything Now I know what the warriors felt like. The Celtics aren't playing well. They are just shooting out of their minds. Pierce is even going half speed and still getting by. He isn't putting any of his normal pressure on the d even. Garnett scores over Hawes so effortlessly. We have some nice bench players now all we need is some starters 1-6 from the line right now Yep, you dont’ make free throws if you don’t get a lot of practice in game-situations, I guess Avery Bradley foils the Sixers again :( Sorry guys – Moultrie is taking us to the playoffs. If the Sixers are a tank...Moultrie is our helicopter… Are the Celtics TOYING with Philly? Moultrie looking GOOD. Moultrie should be benched. Doesn't he know bigs are supposed to shoot long twos and flail around a lot. He has a lot to learn I know we want to tank but tanking shouldn’t come at the cost of Moultrie’s development. If he turns out to be pretty darn good it’d be worth it. ET plays like he has no brain. I'm telling you guys Doug is trying to tank when the game gets close he takes out jrue No idea why Hawes is playing... 3-point shooting ability. Gotta get back in the game, bro. Not sure if youre serious HAHAHANOOOOOO Now all the other bottom feeders have to start winning… its no use of us losing if they keep losing too… Screw you Pierce Thanks for the lotto balls though Pierce loves to do this to us he’s actually helping us. Celtics are mediocre, first round cannon fodder. We’ll get a lottery pick. Oh, it’s appreciated. Just seems like he really loves to not miss against us. Somebody tell me wht a foul is...we r attacking the rim but whistles r silent We are 4 games from the 3rd pick... With a loss we go to 3.5 games from the 3rd pick... And with Atlanta and Miami up next the sky is the limit lol. Yeah they need to do the Paul Pierce arm flail and yell. Atlanta and Miami next :) I was scared that we might win this one but good thing the Celts came to play. Dorell Wright's horrible turnover leads to a Pierce 3. Wright is a garbage player. Can we please have Andrew Bynum injure Dorrell Wright? Were paying him a lot of money. He needs to do something to help this team. Dorell Wright : Ping Pong Ball Saver Hard to hide the fact that Boston is a better team, but the sixers are game tonight. That's better than some of the games earlier in the season where the sixers would fold up and get down by 28. The sixers have no chance at winning so why isnt Moultrie in? Then we’ll have a chance of winning. Can’t let him in until it’s 0.01 secs left. This is a victory #Tankmode Also really bad that Ivey just got heckled for an airball at home. Probably was faux-Celtics fans, but still. 100 pts would be a good consolation BIG MACS Well we lost and scored 101… I hear ping pong balls bouncing Now to see the lakers fall back below .500 [Discuss on CG Forums!]
