Found January 19, 2013 on Celtics Green ...a boston celtics blog.:
As you might imagine with some of the bad calls last night, Tommy was fairly upset with the officiating. But then again, when I saw Marc Davis calling a Bulls game that we'd be in for a long night. We've know since that 2009 series that he and all of his family are Bulls fans. He's also given the Celtics fits ever since. Tommy's first tweet during the game was about a terrible call on KG. Foul on KG: "Aw, that's bogus. That is absolutely a TERRIBLE call by the officials!!!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 In every game, Tommy talks about 2 things: the need to run and the need to take the ball to the hoop. Maybe Doc should have Tommy in for a guest speaker because he is spot on with both of those. When the Celtics run and when they go to the hoop instead of jumpers all game, they are tough to beat. "More of that, we need! Paul Pierce going to the hoop!!!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 Tommy, like all Celtics fans, are intrigued by the potential that Jeff Green has. But time and time again, we find ourselves saying "if only". We're all waiting for consistency from him. Green turns around for 2: "When he turns to the middle like that...What a career he could have if he just masters those hook shots." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 And, of course there were more complaints about the terrible officiating. He didn't tweet about that horrible jump ball call and failure to recognize Rondo calling a time out in Davis' face. I'm thinking either they were restraining him at the moment or reviving him. That call was not just bad, it was criminal. When Hubie Brown is talking about how bad a call is, you know that it was a terrible call. Green turns around for 2: "When he turns to the middle like that...What a career he could have if he just masters those hook shots." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 Offensive foul called on KG: "You know, I'm getting agitated with [the officials]!!! That's three terrible calls!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 Barbosa called: "A foul? Come on, give me a break, will ya?" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 "This guy has gotta go back to referee school." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 Sullinger called for a blocking foul on Belinelli: "There's a guy taking a terrible shot and being bailed out by the official." — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 Rondo had a great game as did Courtney Lee and Sully. Sullinger is the real deal and he seems to get better with every game. Hopefully, the refs will eventually stop calling the ticky tack and phantom fouls on him and let him play. For his 7 point 15 rebound effort in this game, he gets the Tommy Award. "The only guy that I could pick out, other than Rondo, was Jared Sullinger... For his big effort, Sullinger wins the #TommyAward!" — Tommy Heinsohn (@CSNTommy) January 19, 2013 [Discuss on CG Forums!]

Celtkicks: New Colorway of the Nike Air Legacy 3

Over the past 3 games, Paul Pierce has been wearing a new colorway of his signature shoe the Nike Air Legacy 3. This makeup of the AL3 features a Black tongue with a green and white upper. This is one of the best versions of the shoe to date.

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics are back to playing mediocre basketball

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Pierce? He was a different story. You want someone to wear the goat horns in this one? He’s your guy. He was horrible all night from the floor (5-for-17), he was victimized like a callow rookie on arguably the...

Celtics-Pistons Live: Paul Pierce Aims to Shoot C’s Out of Slump in Detroit

8 a.m. ET: Two straight losses have given the Celtics reason to worry, so it may help to get away for a while. A two-game road trip against teams mired near the bottom of the standings therefore could be the perfect antidote. Of course, an opponent that was overmatched on paper managed to halt the Celtics’ six-game winning streak, so the Pistons (14-25) should not be taken lightly...

Bill Simmons On Celtics Jeff Green Being Invisible: I’m Waiting For Him To Start Dating Manti Te’o

Embattled linebacker Manti Te’o has been getting it from all fronts, whether it be news, meme’s, or social media jokes.  No one had bothered to touch on sports television until last night. Last night the Celtics lost a tough overtime game to the Bulls, and during that game, Boston forward Jeff Green did another one of his inconsistent disappearing acts, only accounting for 2...

Bill Simmons: I’ve been waiting for Jeff Green to start dating Manti Te’o

Leave it to Bill Simmons to be one of the first sports analysts to break out a Manti Te’o fake girlfriend reference. Boston Celtics forward Jeff Green has been incredibly inconsistent this season. Every time he rips off a streak of games where he puts up 15-plus points and throws down a dunk like this, it seems like he comes back with three more where he is a complete non-factor...

Recap: Close but no cigar

Key turnovers and shooting woes doom Boston as they lose their 2nd game in a row at home 100-99 to the Bulls. Joakim Noah’s steal with 0.09 left in the 4th led to a Kirk Heinrich 15-footer at the 0.02 mark which tied the game at 88. KG then missed a three-pointer (even though the game was tied) at the buzzer and we were headed to OT. The Celtics could only muster 1 field goal in...

Kevin Garnett Feels Other Eastern Conference Players More Deserving of All-Star Game Start, Including Paul Pierce

BOSTON — After 17 seasons and 14 All-Star Games, Kevin Garnett probably would prefer to take the four-day vacation the majority of NBA players take in the middle of every season. He spent last season’s All-Star break as just that — a break — and came back rejuvenated for the Celtics’ second-half push. Garnett may have to cancel his mid-February vacation plans this year...

5 Things Celtics must do to win tomorrow - Pistons 1/20

The Celtics, coming off their really tough loss to the Bulls, will play another central division team when they visit the Pistons Sunday night. Friday night's loss to Chicago was excruciating to fans. It was, in my opinion, the toughest loss to endure since game 7 of the 2010 finals. But, life(and the schedule) must go on. So here's tomorrow's five things: 5. GET SOMEBODY...

Underrated Stat of the Night - Bulls 1/18

The Celtics have lost. This one really sucked. We had a lead with a few seconds left in both the fourth and in OT, yet we couldn't catch a break. Rondo played amazing: putting in 30 points, 2 rebounds, and 7 assists. Unfortunately, he fouled out mid-way through overtime. This one stings and I just want to move on, but I won't. Tonight's underrated stat of the night...

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc is still steaming about ‘Jump Ball Gate’

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Doc Rivers and his staff have three problems with the controversial jump ball call on Paul Pierce Friday night with nine seconds left in regulation, and the Celtics leading by two points in what evolved as an overtime...

Celtics-Bulls Live: Paul Pierce, C’s Shoot to Regain Winning Form Against Old Friends Tom Thibodeau, Nate Robinson

8 a.m. ET: Not having Derrick Rose has not turned out to be much of a problem for the Chicago Bulls. Then again, that should not be much of a surprise, given their leadership. Former Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau is the head man in Chicago, of course, and under his direction the Bulls have not let the absence of the former NBA Most Valuable Player hold them back. The Bulls...

Celtics Player Grades vs Detroit Pistons

Detroit's frontcourt put a beating on him. But it is not entirely his fault. He has no legitimate froncourt partner to help him out when the going...
