As you might expect, Tommy had a rough night with the officiating as bad as it was in this game. I mean what happened to home cooking? Tommy was quiet for a bit after Ilyasova's elbow to Green's head was ignored and my hubby said that poor Tommy was probably on a respirator after that egregious no call. Here's tonight's Best of Tommy and there's lots of good tweets as always. Tommy started out with some well deserved words of praise for The Captain. Pierce puts the first #Celtics points on the board: "Continuing from the other night, shooting threes, he keeps it going!!!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 Jeff Green started off strong and played well in this game, earning a few Tommy Points for his effort. "Look at this great block by Jeff Green! And then this is a #TommyPoint on the save!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 And Jeff wasn't the only one earning Tommy Points for his effort. Jared Sullinger was very active on the boards, fighting for rebounds and on the offensive rebound, he put it back in for a score earning him two Tommy Points on that play. Amazing Sullinger rebound: "That is two #TommyPoint's!!!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 There was no shortage of reasons to complain about the officiating in this game. It was terrible with bogus calls on the Celtics and no calls on the Bucks. And Tommy let them know about it too! Here's a sampling of his thoughts on the refs. Sullinger called on his 3rd personal foul! "Now that's bologna! That is BOLOGNA! That's two terrible calls on Sullinger!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 13 free throws for the #Bucks vs. 6 for the #Celtics: "Please, PLEASE, let's stop that." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 Ellis gets to the line on a bump from Lee. "This is terrible. This is absolutely terrible. They didn't call that for Pierce!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 "They're giving [Milwaukee] extra shots when Green's down bleeding, and, of course, no foul." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 And on the inability of any of the starters other than Paul Pierce to hit any shots. "The starting lineup has scored 8 baskets other than Paul Pierce... You're not gonna win when your starters end up doing that." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 I agree with Tommy on this one and spend a lot of time yelling at the TV about it. They need to be more aggressive in going to the basket. They settle for way too many jumpers and when they aren't falling like tonight it's brutal. Tommy and I both think they should drive more. "You see what Pierce did on that play? It's what they should have been doing all along: going to the basket." C's trail by 5 at the :30 mark — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 And Courtney Lee was tonight's Tommy Award winner. "Well, this guy, really, to me, put some spark into this ball club." Courtney Lee wins the #TommyAward! "For energy!" #CelticsTalk — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) December 22, 2012 [Discuss on CG Forums!]
