PLAYERS: Jeff Green
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
It's time for the best Tweets from Tommy Heinsohn during the rematch with the Sixers and Tommy was on his game tonight! As Jeff Green was called for traveling, Tommy was counting his steps and Mike wasn't too thrilled with his counting skills. Green called for traveling. Counting steps: "One-two! One-two!" Mike: "I don't want you counting my change." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 I agree with Tommy on this one. I think Sully would be great in the post. The kid has a knack around the basket for rebounds and scoring. It's hard to believe he's just a rookie. Especially one the Celtics picked at 21. Sullinger grabs a board: "That's what I like right there. Give that kid a shot to play on the post! That's his game!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 KG said that he was revved up for revenge and he got it. He played like he was a young pup again tonight. It's great to see. KG jumps past Lavoy Allen for a layup: "I think he landed in Jersey City." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 Tommy had a great description of KG. He is a great competitor. Not only confidence, but intensity and competitiveness flows out of him. I'm so glad he returned this year. He's definitely still got it. KG sinks FT for techie: "He's a great competitor. He gets back in the game, and confidence just flows out of every pore on his body." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 Good things happen when you run and when you go to the hoop. I hope they keep that up instead of settling for jumpers. Green drives, alley-oop from Rondo. "What happens when you run? Nice things!!!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 Sully is already a heck of an addition to this team. He's the steal of the draft. Kid has such a high IQ and knows what to do out there. Sullinger grabs offensive board, hits layup, draws foul, and hits FT: "This guy is gonna be a heck of an addition to this basketball team." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 And for his contributions in this game, Jeff Green wins the Tommy Award. "This guy, I think, is gonna be a nucleus player... for the rest of his career." Jeff Green wins tonight's #TommyAward! — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 9, 2012 [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Comments from the Other Side - Sixers 12/8

A lot of complaining about the refs but they let a lot go on both sides.  They called it pretty much even.   I loved the comment wondering if the Celtics had Go Go Gadget arms.  They did seem to be hustling to all the loose balls.   Now if only the Celtics can find their consistency and do this on a regular basis.  Enjoy today's comments.  I've highlighted my favorites...
