Well for those that fell asleep waiting for the game to start after Darren Collison hit the shot of the year, you really didn’t miss much. The Clippers got out to a huge lead early and the Celtics couldn’t buy a bucket tonight as the Clippers win their 15th straight in a 106-77 blowout.
The Green: Kevin Garnett. He finished the night with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting and did everything he could on both sides of the ball to keep this game close.Courtney Lee was also knocking down some shots is nice to see as he has 12 points on 5-0f-9, if you’re into looking for moral victories in a 29-point blowout.
The Gross: What would you like to pick? The offense going through some bad stretches, including an incredibly slow start to the game that led to the 18-4 deficit the Celtics found themselves in once TNT switched over to the game. Hell, even in the garbage time fourth quarter, they managed to score ten points. TEN. POINTS.
There was also the poor defensive effort as the Clippers ...

Not the type of accolade that Courtney Lee was looking for. Lee has been named a starter on SI.com's All-Disappointment Team joining Deron Williams, D.J. Augustin, Ersan Ilyasova, and Andrea Bargnani. Here's what Sports Illustrated had to say about Lee:Fits between team and player rarely come cleaner than the meeting of Lee, a skilled and versatile combo guard who plays...
Kevin Garnett had some thoughts on the Celtics losing big to the Clippers, going so far as to say the team gave them too much respect.
In the Celtics early start on Christmas Day, CSN viewers were surrounded with holiday spirit, including anecdotal stories of KG buying Scal a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Keyon Dooling dishing out holiday cheer like it he was playing point guard again. Then things became reminiscent of the last meeting between Brooklyn and Boston when Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett got a little...
Tell me anything you want about the Celtics. Tell me they're great, tell me they're awful, tell me you love them, tell me you hate them.
Just don't tell me they are inconsistent.
The fact of the matter folks, is that the Boston Celtics may be the most consistent team in the league. They consistently play up (or down) to their opponents. They consistently lose games...
I’ll say this for the Boston Celtics, they didn’t give up. They were down 20 in the third quarter, but they made a big run to cut it to single-digits by the 4th. But the Celtics just couldn’t keep pace with Golden State. As Doc says, it’s a make/miss league, and the Celtics missed.. a lot… in a big loss to Golden State.
Jared Sullinger played his ass off...
First-off, sorry for anyone who could not tune in to the live stream. I had not used UStream in over a year, and will never use it again. Now on to bigger and better things…
Kevin Garnett’s 3rd signature shoe with Anta, the “KG3″ was released only in China on December 1st. Anta still does not have a US distribution deal, so if you don’t live in China, they’re very hard...
Rajon Rondo (bruised hip) out tonight vs. Golden State...details to come.

Jason Terry and Courtney Lee will be the only guards active on the Celtics roster tonight with both Rondo and Barbosa out. Too bad the C's didn't bring Avery Bradley along on this trip. Could of used him tonight. Expect to see Paul Pierce and Jeff...

The Celtics look to shake off their loss to the the Clippers and get
back into the win column...
Gerald Wallace‘s gift for Kevin Garnett this Christmas came in the form of a fistful of shorts — a present KG wasn’t too thrilled to receive.
Wallace and Garnett had a rather heated exchange during the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s matinee clash between the Nets and Celtics. Garnett tried to hold Wallace up after the Brooklyn forward was fouled in the paint, but instead of...
The Celtics (14-15) failed to get the win against the Warriors (21-10) without Rajon Rondo, and looked pretty bad in the process.
Rondo sat out with a hip and thigh injury and the Celtics needed everyone else to pick up the slack, which they didn't.
Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Jeff Green shot 12-50 and the team as a whole shot 36 percent. While Golden State couldn't miss...

In all my years of watching the National Basketball Association, I've seen players have lapses of judgment on defense but I've never seen an entire team fall asleep.During Thursday night's Celtics/Clippers game, a loose ball foul called on the Clippers started the below mayhem.Watch as the Clippers defense falls asleep and Rajon Rondo finds Kevin Garnett for the easy dunk:

I'd say most people probably have Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett on their ballots, but I'm not sure the other three have came up in reports of being high in the voting. Honestly, Paul Pierce deserves to be up there. Either way, this is an awesome...
