That Was Embarassing

Another horrible loss to a crappy team. For those who are counting, that’s 4 losses in the last 6 games.

The Celtics shot a hideous 6-25 from 3 FG. Ray Allen was 0-9 from three. Kevin Garnett had 6 pts on 1-6 FG. Looks like he suffered some type of calf injury in the second half.

Paul Pierce (31 pts) tried to carry this team in the 4th quarter, but the Celtics defense disappeared. They got sloppy, giving up layups and offensive rebounds.

Wilson Chandler (31 pts, and Al Harrington (30 pts) torched the Celtics defense. I can’t remember the last time two guys burned the C’s like this.

I understand Doc was desperately trying to find 5 guys who could play, but letting Brian Scalabrine play most of the 4th quarter while the team was trying to make a run is just plain dumb. What am I missing with this guy? He’s AWFUL. Wow….Heinsohn just gave the Tommy Award to Scal. My head is going to explode.

Box Score | Recap

I have one non-Celtics related issue – Comcast’s incessant promotion for the “Manny being Manny” special. For anyone who hasn’t watched it, don’t bother. It’s all rehash and does not live up to the billing.

After the jump….dancers.

  1. what the hell happened

  2. Cue the predictable and pathetic Laker troller fans….

  3. Did not get a chance to watch the game but i was tracking it on line. What was wrong with KG??

  4. They need to learn how to play on the road; Rondo is an entirely different player on the road, KG is WAY less intense, it seems that Pierce is the only one who doesn’t notice that he’s playing in a different venue.

  5. Kg is injured. That is not good news. Lakers fans get a life seriously. You don’t make you or your team look good by trolling. You guys are the only ones that suck here.

  6. I really just don’t understand why pierce has it going always at the end of games then they bring it the starting 5 and stop going to pierce? its like i know you can run the regular offense most of the time but when no one has it going just everyone clear out and let pierce (who was hot) win the damn game for you.

  7. ladies and gentleman that was celeticsaredecentatbest, al oser who looks like he has nothing better to do with his life but talk trash.

  8. Relax C’s fans. Reeeeeeeelax. We’ll pull things together-that’s why we’re the Celtics baby. Too many easy layups down low tonight. Definitely a lack of urgency. We need to get up for all teams-not just the good ones. Ubuntu.

  9. Guys, whats with the hating on Rajon? He’s not going to be good every game, KG sucked today too. Lets not start freaking out, but there are some serious problems. This team is much different on the road; they have probably two quality wins on the road all year. And in crunch time, Pierce is really the only one who has stepped up. I’d like to see this Celtic team make a run when they’re down late on the road; they haven’t done that this entire year. If a team has a 6-7 point lead on them halfway through the fourth quarter, it seems as if the C’s just wilt away rather than step it up a notch.

  10. Hey band wagonerrr Celtics4evah get off the bus if your going to give up on these guys already!! Their on a bad streak but where were you haters when they won 19 in a row?? Ya we need help off the bench but it’s not the end of the world. The Fakers lost to the Kings>>>> We blew the Kings out!! The Cavs lost to Washington>>>>we blew them out too!! I have faith in my team and if the Fakers don’t have anything better to do you guys are welcome to spend as much time on the CHAMPS board as youd like……lol!!

  11. Go Knickerbockers! Finish the Marbury buyout, cause the C’s bench needs him.

  12. The fakers did not snap our 19 game streak, they snapped our swag and confidence on road games, which is damn worse. We were too f-ing soft tonight… it’s not like the C’s became a bad team all of a sudden because they still blew out the Kings and the Wizards, but on the other road games… well we played like we feared to lose, and when you do that it eventually happens. No determination, no will to win, just fear, the result is playing in 2008-first-and-second-round-mode.

    One last thing, we need someone for the bench right now, be it Starbury or anyone else, it won’t be worse than now and we need a bench key player like bread.

  13. tell em ssshady

  14. Its a long season. Take a deep breath relax and pray for those poor Laker fans.They will need it.

  15. If any of the comments don’t make sense…. it’s because I deleted the Laker Troll comments that preceded them. Some used pro-Celtics names…. but their IP addresses gave them away. We’re still working on it.

  16. Boston should take a lesson from the BC basketball team on how to sustain a close lead on the road.

  17. Juan your a Celtic fan from boston what are you doing routing for the knicks?!

  18. My impression was that he’s rooting for them to complete the buyout of Starbury. I gotta admit, I’ve warmed up to the idea of him coming to our team after seeing our bench play over the past few games. Not to mention the fact that he is definitely a talent.

  19. Theeeeeeeeee hell? warriors, blazers with no broy, now the knicks? aye but the knicks are still playoff bound this year right? 8th or 7th seed?

  20. I doubt the Knicks make the playoffs. It could happen, though, if D’Antoni has them improve throughout the year.

  21. All the “Marbury to Celtics” rumors are making me laugh out of my chair! It’s so lame that this team is turning to this punk for help! lol! Redsarmy even resorted to justifying it. i got a good laugh out of it. man, that sh– is lame! lol! whatever makes you celtics fans sleep at night (cos you know your team is in serious trouble now. lol.)

  22. Yeah just like the Lakers were when they came to the East coast…Big trouble. Give it a rest. Every team hits bumps and your Lakers are no different. How did they do on their East coast trip. Not so hot either.

  23. Also didn’t the Lakers lose to Sac this year? Would fit quite nicely under this title don’t you think? This is what is annoying about the samck talk going on here. You better make sure your team never had a embarrassing loss in the season.

  24. Yeah you guys definitely lost too many games on your road trip, but remember that it was on the road. Most teams play worse on the road…You’ll just have to clean up that part of your game, although you know that I won’t be rooting for you.

  25. Jason, you’re just ignorant if you don’t think Marbury is talented and could help any team. The only concern with him is his attitude. We have the veteran presence(s) in Boston to make sure he doesn’t get outta line. Wouldn’t be able to say the same thing in LA, that’s for damn sure.

  26. U guys should just stop being talking trash ok cause right now u guys dont have the right to talk shit hey its normal LA fans are coming here to bash u guys hey u guys lost 6 times already and those Ls were against teams that u guys should have beaten easily.

  27. I’m sorry… was that English?

  28. I’m not saying that Marbury isn’t talented because he is. It’s just funny how celtics fans are counting on this punk a– to save their team from this slump when Marbury’s track record shows that he clearly isn’t the type of player that should be counted on. Give him credit for his talent but I don’t believe, and 75% of the world will agree with me on this one, that he is capable of helping a team and be a team player for that matter. i smell some desperation. sniff sniff…

  29. Scott, you’re the one who’s ignorant. If there’s anyone in the world that can control a punk a– like Marbury, that’s Phil Jackson. Remember Dennis Rodman?

  30. We aren’t counting on Marbury to do anything other than contribute anything other than a couple of assists and jump shots off the bench. The guy averages nearly 8 assists for his career and can definitely shoot the rock. You can’t deny that. He easily has the ability to open up the floor for the rest of our bench.

    He’s never been in an environment like this one before. He’s always been the focal point, for the most part, of any offense he’s been in. He’d be a role player for us. I’m not sure where you’re getting this “you guys are counting on Marbury to save you from your slump” BS. We’re not. We hit a rough patch…it happen. We aren’t worried.

  31. Phil also had Jordan and other strong leadership on that team. Say what you want, but Phil can’t control Kobe, hence all the drama you guys went through a couple of off-seasons ago.

  32. JD, Celtics fans from a team who won the latest championship (against your beloved Lakers) have no right to talk trash but Lakers fans have all the right in the world to? Give me a break and think about your idea of logic. Lakers fans really need to get something worthwile to do then obsessing over what is going on at Reds Army.

  33. oh man, i can’t believe i ever, EVER became worried that this team was going to challenge my bulls for the best record in league history. my gosh MJ’s Ambassador, believe more in your 72-10 bulls. they are the best team MJ’s Ambassador. ok, back with you guys, i have to admit, the celtics are playing pathetic basketball. are these the same champs? ny knicks? quentin richardson must be laughing all the way back home. if they don’t fix their issues, they won’t even make it out of the east. this team has to win at a minimum half the number of championships that jordan won in order to prove themselves. one championship doesn’t prove much at all, as MJ himself said. especially for an organization like the celtics that truly great teams are only made when they dominate a decade. as for me, i can have a good night’s sleep. good night to you guys, sleep well.

  34. Great now we are getting Bulls fans who are living in the past.
    Enjoy your current Bulls team.

  35. Meh… let them talk. That’s all that is.

  36. Aww man, some retard stole my name.

  37. Seriously, Scal deserved the Tommy Award. Why can’t any of the Celtics follow up on their shots? How come when a ball is in the air, none of the Celtics make an attempt to get in the paint to fight for a rebound. It’s lazy. Scal fought hard and played passionately. Bash Scal all you want, I would have rather had him on the team than KG last night.

  38. Just chalk it up to the fact that you weren’t as good as the 19 game streak was leading you to believe and your not as bad as the current let down…

    …and yes the Lakers are to thank for giving the rest of the NBA hope when playing the C’s…as I said before…that game was more important to the Celtics…

    Go Lakers

  39. Why are you guys so obsessed with Lakers fans? This is a Celtics board, so why not focus on that? These Faker comments are getting pretty lame.

    But yeah, I don’t know what’s going on with the C’s right now. I’m sure they’ll pick it up and play at a high level again, but 2-4 over the last six games is peculiar for a team that started 27-2. I guess they had to come down sometime, though. Hey, 29-6 is still a damn good record.

  40. You know… Brian Scalabrine wasn’t bad in this game. Yes, he missed some open shots. But Al Harrington didn’t do a thing against him on the other end. He played Harrington hard and actually kept him in check.

    So yeah… he missed a couple of 3’s. He wasn’t alone. But don’t call him awful. He did a good job on the defensive end

  41. Scott, Phil Jackson did a remarkable job with Kobe a couple of seasons ago. I’m not sure what you’re trying to say. All you need to do is look at the results. Kobe resigned. Kobe has been a model employee ever since.

    I’d say he handled the “premier primmadonna/Black Mamba” quite well.

  42. My point was that Marbury wouldn’t be able to coexist on a team with the likes of Kobe, Pau, and Sasha on it.

  43. What the hell does Sasha have to do with this…he’s a Euro role player who sometimes shows too much emotion…how is he comparable with Allen or KG? …or Pau for that matter, who prefers being the second star…

    With that said I don’t think Rodman-Marbury is a good comparison…Rodman was a player who excelled without the ball…his spotlight was off the court, not on…he was a defensively sound, hard working grunt on the floor-zero offensive game to speak of…and Rodman had two rings already…Marbury is a ball-handler, he’s potentially the genesis of every play when he’s on the court…you need a cool customer at the point, not a hot-headed, punk who’s never won anything…

    Let the implosion begin…

    Go Lakers

  44. Scott, that same logic could be applied to the likes of KG, Pierce, and Ray Allen, really. How many troublesome players has Doc Rivers had to manage in his career? Marbury is going to be, unlike anything he’s every seen… or played with, I think. Although I heard Spud Webb was a tyrant in the locker room.

  45. “…he’s ever seen…” I meant to type.

  46. I don’t think it could. KG, Pierce, and Ray are all positive veteran presences. I wouldn’t say the same about Kobe, Pau, and Sasha. They are all very strong personalities who don’t like having their toes stepped on.

    That’s exactly what Sasha has to do with it.

  47. I can promise you this, no one on this website, has a RIGHT to bash on any player, because they are the ones working hard in the gym making the big bucks those who talk shit are just on the computer.

  48. Did anyone pick up on Ray Allen giving Rondo a serve in the media today? He basically came out and said the blueprint to stop the Celtics was to put a big guy on Rondo and make him shoot it.

    Not sure if Ray Allen was trying to get Rondo pumped up via the media, but I’m pretty sure every team is going to try this against the Celtics from here on.

    Related: Remember how Rondo and Ray Allen had to be seperated from screaming at each other on court a few weeks ago? Paul Pierce basically pulled them apart… Not sure which game this was, but seems like there is an ongoing spat between Rondo and Ray Allen.

  49. Scott…besides Kobe…who has every right to be a “strong personality” considering he’s the best player in the league…can you give an example of a toe-stepping incident with Pau or Sasha?

    Ben…obviously Rondo made some advances towards Ray in the locker room and Allen doesn’t care for it…I heard that the on-court scrap was Allen shouting “Get your hand off my ass, homo!”…Rondo just kept saying “Don’t be mad Ray-Ray…I just can’t quit you!”…

    Tough times in Beanback Mountain…

    Go Lakers…home of the celtics most hated rival…
