Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
These are always a little depressing when we lose big but there are some interesting things in there too. Like the fact that they felt the refs loved them. When even the opposing team sees the refs favoring them you know it's bad. Those declaring Pierce done didn't see him score 40 points just a couple of games ago. I hope you enjoy these in spite of the loss.
Celtics bouta get baked like Boston beans
Garnett usually a pretty tough matchup for David Lee, especially in recent years:
Warriors should beat these old folks from Boston. I would be very disappointed if we don't outrun these guys at home. We need to make them beg for oxygen by the 4th quarter...
I bet that Boston leads the league in "illegal screens"
LOL roll out the wheelchair for some of the Boston guys LOL...they need it now. Hahaha. They seem to be 1 steps slower than the Warriors. Warriors just need to run circle around these oldies
Rondo is not playing!!
it's a trap! We get all geared up for defending Rondo, and now that he’s not here, we’re lost, so we’re going to loooooose
We don't want Jet to have a career game...
Wow, no Rondo is HUGE. Offense will hopefully struggle
Is that a foul on Pierce? Yes please get that dude into foul trouble
Celtics trying to get Cousins
KG can put his punk ass into place.
Thank god the Celtics traded big baby away
I can't stand the Celtics cause of what Ray Allen said like three years ago.
Pierce...two block shots...lost a ball...traveling.... = sign of retirement LOL
I'm sorry for agreeing for the Barnes/Pierce trade on the Trade board.
Yup. Pierce is done.
We are getting favorable calls at home vs a prestigous team, awesome.
I'm kinda hoping Garnett pulls some of his "try to intimidate the Euro" crap tonight and Biedrins dump trucks his punk ass like a Latvian hotel suite.
Boston needs oxygen
This is why I wasn't nearly as down on Sullinger before the draft as a lot of people were. Yeah, he can't jump, but he knows how to play.
These aren't your fathers Celtics More like your grandfathers..
And so the Celtics flopping starts..
Love seeing PP upset, the real big baby...
Sullinger is a nasty post player.
I remember when I wanted the dubs to draft Sully
Undersized PFs always kill us
How long can it be till the Celtics call up Fab Melo to give them a legit Center.
Really annoying thing is once the C's get to the playoffs they will become 3 times as good.
They have no chance with Pierce, Garnett and Terry playing together waaaaaay to old.
KG is so mad right now
that's not always good...
Refs love us
Man if Sullinger was a little taller
Lol at NBATV saying how much should we give Golden State credit vs. It being Rondo missing Yo NBATV, they are a .500 team, cut that out.
Celtics - just keep clanking 3s
KG the flopper
It was over before it began...no rondo no Celtics
Paul Pierce is stinkin it up.
Courtney lee can't hang with steph
Boston should just pack it in.
OK, don't wake up, Pierce
HA. Look at Peirce cry on the bench
When Klay block on Pierce, it's another evidence Pierce needs to retire soon Pierce has no more jump...he's slow to the basket...
Contrary to belief Bostons bench is killing us lol
Courtney lee is so annoying
No no no no no!!! NO not PP!
They gave the Celtics a ray of hope just to crush it
Terry's' got ice in his veins
Daily 3rd quarter lead collapse commences
Is Curry involved in some point shaving scheme?
Wow, refs love us
Uh oh Wasn’t it a blood time out that started the Laker run?
Fake blood!! I call fake!! They're just tired!
Celtics - keep missing 3s I love it
Doc just waived the white flag
Can’t wait to hear the NBATV guys blame this all on Rondo
They're bad here, but they ALWAYS pull it out in the playoffs. They wont go all the way, but they'll beat someone

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from northern California.
Though the Warriors were the team playing a back-to-back, Boston was the one that looked old and tired.
Especially when compared to the 20-year-old Barnes, whose fresh legs and athleticism bothered Pierce all night. Pierce...
Two former Celtics were in the D-League news this week as the Canton Charge sent the rights to former Celtic Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants today for former Celtic JaJuan Johnson and Fort Wayne’s 2013 first-round draft pick.
The 6-foot-10 Johnson, a big man who would rather shoot jump shots than bang down low, averaged 13.2 points...

Wow. What is there to say? The Kings outplayed the Celtics the whole game, except for the second quarter which the Celtics won 31-30. The defense did not show up, allowing the Kings to shoot 53.7% from the field and 50% from 3. DeMarcus Cousins got his first triple-double. Jason Thompson, Isiah Thomas, and John Salmons scored over 20 points for the...

The Celtics look to shake off their loss to the the Clippers and get
back into the win column...
In a rare D-League trade, two recent Celtics, JaJuan Johnson and Luke Harangody, have been traded for each other.
The Charge acquired former Purdue big man JaJuan Johnson on Friday, and they used an old friend to do it.
Canton sent the rights to former Cavalier forward Luke Harangody and a 2013 third-round draft pick to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in exchange for Johnson and Fort Wayne’s...
The Warriors haven't been this good since the days of "Run TMC"
These aren't the old Golden State Warriors that we're used to seeing. This year's squad is 20-10, 9-4 at home, and in second place in the Pacific Division behind LA (that's the Clippers, not the Lakers; what a weird NBA season this is out in California?). David Lee and Steph Curry...
The Celtics and Pistons have made it clear to the Kings that they are highly interested in Cousins if and when he becomes available.

The DeMarcus Cousins rumors continue to swirl, and it's getting to the point where the old "where there's smoke - there's fire" adage is coming into play. One name that is consistently popping up as a possible trade chip for the Celts is Avery Bradley. Bradley is ready to return from shoulder surgery (double shoulder surgery at that) as soon as Wednesday night...
After kicking off a four-game trek with a much-needed win Christmas Day, the Boston Celtics saw their road woes resume their last time out.
They're likely to have their hands full again with a visit to the Bay up next.

One thing that is apparent after the last three games: The Celtics don’t yet trust each other. That’s not to say that Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Rajon Rondo don’t trust each other; they do. They don’t trust some of the newcomers, and Garnett made that clear after Sunday’s 118-96 loss in Sacramento.
The Celtics are not on the same page. Some...
