Found November 15, 2012 on Red's Army:
  This one started off as we all thought it would-C’s looked tired & sloppy and were out-hustled by the Nets. After 1Q, Brooklyn was up 31-26 and the C’s had given-up 50% FG and already committed 6 turnovers. Things then started to turn around a bit in the 2nd. Behind some fantastic play from Bass and Barbosa, who had 10 pts in the quarter, the C’s pulled to within 3, 49-46 with a little over 2 minutes remaining in the half. But it was the 2nd chances and rebounding that snuffed the C’s tonight in the 1st two Q’s. Going into halftime, the Nets already had 15 offensive boards, and Joe Johnson’s three-pointer put Brooklyn up 59-50 at halftime. The short rest halftime rest sure didn’t seem to help the C’s at first. Brooklyn opened up the 3rd Q with a heavy dose of DWill and Brook Lopez. Their combined 10 points in barely over 2 minutes had the Nets up 12, 69-57 with 7:56 to go in the 3rd. Enter Paul Pierce. The Truth buried a triple off the glass, then exploded down the lane for 2...

Enemy Chatter: Avery Johnson was afraid of another Paul Pierce pull-up 3

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 Brooklyn. “Did you see Paul Pierce hit that pull-up 3-pointer (with 24 seconds left to get them within two)?” Johnson asked reporters. “I had in my mind that he was probably gonna do it again, so I played the foul game. It’s a coaching...

Comments from the Other Side - Jazz 11/14

Some good stuff from KG hating to Paul Pierce's old man game that was killing them. Of course there are the Tommy haters. Funny that they hate on Tommy for being a homer, but when I watch other teams' announcers it seems that they are just as much homers, as they should be. And of course they hate on their own players... Al, Mo, Foye. Enjoy today's CFTOS. The...

Comments from the Other Side - Nets 11/16

Two things are certain from the comments. Nets fans hate Courtney Lee. They don't like having more Celtics fans at their games than Nets fans.

Green Envy: What Jazz fans said - 11/14

A great win for the Celtics. Obviously, Jazz fans weren't very pleased. Mostly their hate was directed at their own players - specifically one Mo Williams. Williams started going into hero mode at the end of the game, only problem is he's not LeBron James or Kobe Bryant. Or like, Paul Pierce even. That plan didn't turn out so well for Utah. Top three: 1. I think if we...
