Don’t Make Him Angry

Thanks to a sloppy 2nd quarter, the Celtics lead by only a bucket (48-46) at the break. But a funny thing happened in the 3rd quarter – Paul Pierce got pissed off. 17-points-in-the-quarter pissed off. Turns out he didn’t like the 3 BS fouls called on him in the first half.

The Celtics coasted 107-88 but its kinda hard to get excited when the injury-riddled Magic only play 7 guys. But let’s face reality, even with a full roster the Magic are not in the Celtics’ class.

Rondo dropped his first double-double of the season – 16 pts, 12 assists.

Ray continues to shoot well – 21 pts, 8-13 FG, 3-6 3FG. He scored 9 points in the 1st quarter which helped the C’s get the jump on Orlando.

A scare for Tony Allen in the 2nd quarter when he left the court limping. Turns out it was a sprained right ankle. TA did return and maintained his aggressiveness in the 2nd half.

Box Score | Recap

Did you see Perk’s new move? The one where he winces while holding his hands palms out against his chest with the hopes refs won’t slap him with a tech. Didn’t work…he collected a T in the fourth quarter. Speaking of technical fouls, Sam Cassell got tossed after collecting a pair from the bench.

Doc Rivers was named Eastern Conference’s coach of the month for November, making him just the third to win the conference’s award for three straight months.

“I carry it around with me, because chicks dig the medal.” – Dwight Howard on the whereabouts of his Olympic gold medal.

I’m back from my mini-vacation, so that means there’s a hot cheerleader picture, after the jump.

  1. WTF is wrong with Delaney’s finger? He held up 3 when Pierce got fouled by Lewis on that 3 and his pinky was crooked as hell.

  2. haha I was wondering if anyone else realized that, his pinky was so funny looking

  3. Not that they matter, but according to Hollinger’s math, the Celtics are only the 4th best team in the NBA, barley above the 8-8 Dallas Mavs.

  4. I think Hollinger’s math is flawed. The Celtics are playing 10 guys… and a lot of the traditional things one might look at are thrown off. Efficiency ratings will go down when your bench gets more time than usual.

    I think even Hollinger would admit that there is some skewing going on with the Celtics numbers.

  5. I had to keep up on the game online, so I missed Sam getting 2 techs…how the hell do you get 2 techs without even playing?!?

  6. Sam’s not shy… bench or not.

  7. Looks like those sweeties are aiming to catch something in their mouths….

  8. Red, good call on blowing out the Magic yesterday. You said it, man.

    Time to avenge the Indy loss early in the season.

  9. What do you guys think about the Tech on Perk? I thought it was BS! You guys were right. Perk can’t even scream in excitement, or he’ll pick up a T. At this point, if Perk is still treated like this by the refs, he’s definately going to to get more than 17 Techs, and probably be suspended a few games this year. The C’s should start giving O’Bryant some playing time because we might need him playing big minutes in the playoffs if Perk keeps this up.

  10. […] The Celtics smoked Orlando 107-88 in their first meeting of this season. That was the game Paul Pierce went off in the 3rd quarter. […]
