I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Atlanta.
Kevin Garnett, when asked if Jeff Teague’s dunk on Ray Allen and subsequent taunting in the third quarter angered the Celtics.
“I don’t even know who you are talking about. That guy’s a nobody.’’
No Hawk was assessed a technical foul for excessive celebration after Teague closed out the home loss with an air ball on a three-point attempt.
Definitely enjoyed reading the Hawks blogs this morning. They bashed Jeff Teague and Josh Smith nearly as much as we did.
On Page 2, no love for Celtics fans in Atlanta.
And for whoever was at the game
are there more annoying fans in the nba than them. I honestly wanted to ask all of them “have you ever been to Boston?”

CSNNE's Jess Camerato uncovered some interesting information about Ray Allen's choice of footwear:
Allen entered the NBA in 1996 wearing a size 13 sneaker. As time went on, he went up to a 14. Just two years ago, he made another jump that has helped his performance and his health.“My feet were always hurting,” he told CSNNE.com. “I was at shootaround in Detroit...
The Atlanta Hawks controlled most of their contest Monday night against the Celtics and looked poised to slam the door shut when Jeff Teague savagely threw down the above dunk over Ray Allen in the third quarter to put the Hawks up by eight. Teague got T’ed up for taunting after the jam, and something about that sparked the Celtics, who then went on a 36-13 run and left Atlanta...
Bigger sneakers may or may not have helped Ray Allen recover from a three-point shooting slump (for Allen, a three-point shooting slump means he’s only connecting at a league-average clip). However, his new, larger Air Jordans don’t seem to have improved his shot blocking abilities. Maybe he should try rocking a Ben-Wallace-type wristband.
And maybe Jeff Teague should roll...
When the Celtics assembled the Big Three back in 2007, the health of Ray Allen was a major concern. Allen was coming off double ankle surgery and was the oldest of the new trio. Since his game relies on making cuts and coming off screens, critics wondered if the move would pan out for the C’s. It did, and now you could argue that he looks fresher and younger than Paul Pierce and...
I actually had no idea that Atlanta Hawks guard Jeff Teague could get up like this.
The NBA lockout occasionally leaves its imprint on an otherwise nondescript meeting between two middling Eastern Conference playoff teams, and tonight the lockout gods (or demons, rather) pushed dozens of shots wide right, or left, or short, or long.Even the game’s most exciting highlight, Jeff Teague’s tomahawk dunk on Ray Allen’s dome, resulted in a mistake. He screamed...
The Boston Celtics were locked in a back and forth, chippy, close game at the Atlanta Hawks home stadium. In the fourth quarter, a Celtic run - highlighted by two Ray Allen threes - helped Boston build a lead as high as 15. The Hawks then went on a 16-4 run down the stretch and pulled back within one with 11.8 seconds left in the game. A pair of Ray Allen free throws and a missed...
ATLANTA (AP) -- Ray Allen hit two 3-pointers in Boston's 13-0 run in the fourth quarter and protected the lead with two free throws in the final seconds as the Boston Celtics held on to beat the Atlanta Hawks 79-76 on Monday night.
The Celtics led 73-58 at the end of the run. Joe Johnson, who had 25 points, had three late 3-pointers as the Hawks rallied. Johnson's 3 with...
Ray Allen isn't focused on the Celtics' modest seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings or the two-game losing streak they brought to Atlanta.
The 16-year veteran guard insists he likes this Boston team - especially when it plays as it did in the fourth quarter against the Hawks.
Allen hit two 3-pointers in Boston's 13-0 run in the fourth quarter and protected...
8 a.m.: The Celtics continue their tour of cities that contain NBA teams contending with the C's for a playoff spot by taking on the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday. The Bucks are chasing the Celtics and Knicks in the Eastern Conference playoff race, and after winning six straight games, they have become a legitimate threat. They went all in on this season, trading franchise center...

The journey was especially rough today. The Red's Army team has had its difficulties tracking the Celtics this season, but this one was one of the worst.
