It was just that kind of a night. The Celtics looked tired and disinterested; giving in to a speedy Milwaukee team that absolutely abused Boston inside and on the break.
Slow Start, and it didn't get Better: The Celtics were hoping to come out strong and be the aggressor, but Milwaukee actually controlled the game early, forcing turnovers as the Celtics could not establish a rhythm. It was painful to watch as the Celtics got pounded on the glass and could not buy a bucket. Milwaukee was up by as much as 18 in the second, led by 15 first-half points from Brandon Jennings. The young point guard was fantastic with 21 points, 13 assists, and 6 steals. Boston never came back. This is a game the Celtics could have grinded out with defensive intensity, but they turned the ball over incessantly and allowed far too many uncontested layups. 6 Bucks finished in double figures, including some dude named Tobias Harris who burned us with 18 points.

Last night after the loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, Kevin Garnett gave a speech to his teammates that involved a "pack of hyenas" metaphor. Strange to say the least. But this isn't the first time Kevin has said some very strange metaphors. Lets look back on some of his best.

BOSTON -- The Celtics were extremely formidable at the TD
Garden last season, when they won 24 of their 33 home games and enjoyed a
bittersweet send-off from their fans toward the end of Game 6 of the Eastern
The Bucks did not much care about Boston's home record from
last season, though, and Celtics coach Doc Rivers recognized that. Shortly...

On Friday night the Celtics opened up their 2012-2013 season at home against the Milwaukee Bucks. Coming off a loss to the Miami Heat the Celtics looked to crack down on the defensive end and continue to execute on offense. Unfortunately neither of these things happened for the Celtics as they lost to the Bucks 99-88.
The Celtics struggled from the start looking sloppy on offense...
The Celtics trail the Bucks 46-3 at the half as Brandon Jennings leads the way with 15 points and four assists. It’s been a game marred by a high turnover rate and mediocre shooting, with the majority of the quality offense coming on the break. The lone bright spot for the Celtics has been Jared [...]
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 Milwaukee.
They will face a Celtics team already smarting from an opening-night road loss to Miami and former teammate Ray Allen on Tuesday.
“I think every first game everybody gets a little nervous,” Jennings said. “Especially for...
Once again, we recap the best and worst of the Celtics Opening
Week. So far the Celtics are 1-2 to start the season, having lost both the road
and home openers but winning against the lowly Wizards last night. Let’s take a

All this talk about Dwyane Wade whining about Rondo's hard foul had me thinking about how basketball used to be played. You know by now that I read a lot of books on Celtics history. I love reading the story about how the Celtics didn't back down from anyone. Those Celtics teams in the old days had some swagger. I know that part of that swagger came from winning, but...
Doc on Wade's "punk play" comment: "Don't forget about Rondo's elbow injury (in 2011 playoffs)…that was created by Dwyane Wade."— Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 1, 2012
Yeah, cause Dwyane Wade has never done a punk move in his life.
Seriously, I'm sick of Wade already. I never hated him before the Heat got LeBron and Bosh but since then...
Jason Terry of the Boston Celtics ROCKS the headband like no other. He decided to spread the LOVE across Boston with MIXED RESULTS.
This video proves that all heads are NOT HEADBAND WORTHY. One woman was having a major issue putting on this athletic fashion accessory.
Yes, we are NOT KIDDING.
EPIC HEADBAND FAIL…..
Dwyane Wade called Rajon Rondo's hard foul in the opener a "punk play" and said that only knowing his children were watching kept him from retaliating. Today after practice, Rondo talked a little about the foul although he wouldn't say too much, asking the reporters if they were trying to get him a fine. But he did say at the end of the interview,
There is one thing we do know is that the NBA is a copycat league. When the Boston Celtics revived the 'Big Three' theory, Pat Riley decided that he wanted his own with a slight twist. As a result he got the 'super-brats' together in South Beach and won the 2011-12 NBA title. This year, for some reason, the NBA is not only obsessed with small-ball but the pick-n-roll...
As you might expect, a lot of the talk was about the Celtics lack of defense in their first game. Each player mentioned the need for better transition defense, which means that Doc had drilled that fact into their heads during the preceding practice. Along with transition defense, communication was a topic as well.
It was also announced today that Rondo's Flagrant 1...
