Most Wolves fans still love and respect KG, which is a good thing since he was totally classy there and gave that franchise a lot.  He does love beating them now though.    Lots of ref complaints but honestly, they got as many calls as the Celtics did.   Good game for the Celtics.  Great to see them finally crashing the boards as a team.  I've highlighted my favorite comments in bold.  What are yours?   Well, we all know KG shuts down Love, so hopefully Love understands he will not be much of a factor, scoring wise. Tough matchup. We never beat these guys. Our bench has to kill theirs to have a chance. Rondo didn't choose the thug life, the thug life chose him. The thug life chose him while he was a prep at the University of Kentucky. Boston has looked mighty awful this year. Paul Pierce looks like a geriatric this year so I don't think we have to be too worried about that matchup. I'm wondering how we defend Rondo, other PGs who torched us were good shooters, Rondo is useless in that segment.. KG would go 82 - 0 if he only played the wolves. The Celtics are a horrible offensive rebounding team They are below 20% a game. The only other team to do that? Last year’s Celtics I'd love to crawl inside KG's head to see his various motivators for each team He’ll be howling tonight. Rajon Rondo is going to play in this game Serious sad face time How about a half sad face Because from an entertainment standpoint, I would rather watch the Celtics with him playing. As fun to watch as he is 20-20 games are only entertaining when they aren’t happening to you. I’m expecting him to completely ravage us. Rondo went to Mexico during his suspension Let’s hope he brought some Montezuma’s revenge back with him I hate Boston teams. This victory will be delicious. Kind of excited to watch Sully play. That is one rookie who seems to be getting overlooked, especially for a big-market player "How awesome would it be to see our guys get in KG’s head tonight and get him frustrated" Boston is old and cant run with the wolves.. Rondo isn't a shooting PG so he may have 15 assists but wont kill us.. Wolves win 95-90 Will Rondo be back from his supsension? Either way, I can't wait to dominate the Relics Garnett abusing anyone who attempts to guard him in the post. I'd suggest a double-team until he cools down. Rondo flying around the court ugh I'm really not interested in seeing KG be amazing Been there, done that, wore the jersey threadbare. Rondo is a ***** Let us not leave Terry open all night, please I guess ramming a knee into love is not a foul in Boston. If they aren't happy with the c. Lee signing, trade him to us. Stiemmsma flopping like a fish I gotta bad feeling the refs are gonna make this tough for the Wolves When KG's out of the game, our defense is much, much better than theirs. I love how Rondo sort of swaggers into half-court sets Dante is basically a better Jeff Green for 7 mil less Poor Jared Sullinger He’s confused why everyone else on his team can chuck the dribbler with two hands thirty feet from the rim but if he hand checks someone its an auto whistle The Celtics commentators are as ignorant as some of their fans. God, KG is a terror. KG screwing all of our penetration up. He keeps closing the lanes. Someone should see if he would stop when asked politely. Maybe KG made a pact to never lose to the Wolves when he arrived in Boston. We don't play well with teams that play defense They're cutting through us on offense like a hot knife through rich MN creamery butter. Askinf Dante to guard Pierce in BOS isnt fair Refs are being very nice to Boston here. Refs are afraid of Boston fans. Watching these Celtics is kind of...….well, it’s like putting on Goat’s Head Soup after listening to Exile. It’s still recognizable and good, but the magic is gone New Orleans Pelicans? How about the Louisiana Purchases? Rondo just passed up an open layup to throw it out to a covered guy. He’s a weird player. Rondo has a face that you just want to punch There is a guy I play pick up with that looks like rondo. I usually do want to punch him. Bass is taking it to Love. Exactly the type of player Love has trouble with. A hard nosed hustle guy. Celtics aren't even good We're straight up better than this Boston team Ball don't lie where's Sheed when you need him? Well, apparently he’s losing to the bobcats The Celtics are outrebounding us. Pathetic It shouldn't be close, they're one of the worst in the league We're shooting 45%. We’re letting them shoot 55%. Not many offensive rebounds for them to grab Maybe I'm more annoyed than usual because of the appalling announce team Every time I listen to these pricks I swear I won’t let them piss me off, but they always manage it. Free throws are for women. Real men DON'T NEED YOUR CHARITY. Honestly, did anyone expect to win this game? Wish Rondo would have gotten a 3 game suspension. Are we really going to lose to these guys again? KG's getting away with a lot right now.... They're a really dirty team And KG is leading it. He could have easily fouled out in the first quarter It really does suck when teams get 'annoited' and get away with stuff while we don't. Spurs were the first I ever noticed it with. These Celtics are another one of them. The Celtics are masters at pushing in the back on a board and not getting called. It's frustrating seeing Love get completely neutralized because of the refs. They take his focus off of the game And BY THE WAY, awesome that KG's still this good and impactful. I thought he was cooked two years ago. Can't believe he's kept it going. Love that guy. I don't love him But since hes put on his big boy pants and played center hes been great again. Good for him I never understand how a TWolves fan doesn’t love KG. I can’t wrap my mind around that. He gave us everything. I'm still giddy that the Wolves didn't have the chance to draft Doc's terrible kid I sure miss KG's consistency. He only missed 21 games in 12 years with the Wolves. Love missed 43 games his first 4 years. It's nice to have your best/highest paid players actually playing, and playing D. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
