What More Can You Say?

I’m calm.

I’m calm.

I’m calm.

I don’t know what more I can say about the Celtics.  Ray Allen played another 40 minutes last night.  But I’ve already talked about how he’s the oldest guy on the team.  I don’t know why Doc Rivers is so cautious with Kevin Garnett (29 minutes) but ok with barely resting Ray Allen.  And I know Gabe Pruitt made a couple of mistakes in his 11 minutes last night, but he can score.  Why not play him 5 more minutes?  I don’t get it.

I’ve already talked about Rajon Rondo’s recent struggles.  It seems like we’ve got a choice:  tentative Rajon who stays upright but passes the ball to the wing when he’s a foot from the rim… or the aggressive Rajon who dives into the lane, draws fouls and wreaks havoc, but gets flattened every time.

What more can you say?  We’re a ship in a storm… and all we can do is hang on.  This thing is either going to capsize or this storm will pass.  I think this team is too good to capsize.  It’s frustrating as all hell… but this crap will pass.

It has to.

Ok… we need this.  After the jump, cheerleader pics and today’s links.

  1. F*ck it, sign Marbury!

  2. I’m glad somebody’s calm.

  3. i thought gabe played, also i liked what i saw from O’bryant in garbage minutes;

    could gabe ultimately be better than rondo?

    He looks to have all the tools to be a very good point guard in this league, at some point he is gonna need some playing serious playing time

  4. Throughout the entire time this team has been together its been like glory days, this is the first real tough stretch this team has been through and let’s see how they handle it. If they come out of this and regroup we know they are a better team for going through it, similar to the first 2 rounds of last years playoffs. This is just another bump in the road.

  5. I heard a rumor that Danny offered gabe and giddens for reddick? WTF?

    i’ve come to believe that are bench problems are not scoring problems as everyone else believes but that are bench kinda sucks a defense; even TA who is our one really good D guy off the bench doesnt impress me that much, being only 6’4 he can only guard points and small shooting guards off

    everyone points out the fact that are bench cant score like they did last year, but the fact is they said are bench couldnt score last year either

    everyone thinks back to all of posey’s clutch three’s and a couple of PJ’s clutch putbacks and 15 footers and thinks well thats why there bench sucks this year they cant score

    in fact we have just as good of scoring bench as we had last year, eddie is back and powe with the increased playing time is taking posey’s 9 points a game

    The problem though is the bench’s D, no way in hell pj gives up some of the dunks Bron got last night, he would have knocked him on his ass, PJ was one of the best ive seen at giving momentum changing fouls-instead of a crowd rousing dunk bron wouldve shot free throws

    and pierce didnt score at all last night in big part because he had to guard Lebron ALL night

    there was no Posey to come in relief for him, thats what it boiled down to, our bench doesnt need more scorers (though we could use some guys that can shoot) we need Defensive minded guys coming off the bench

  6. Um, KG only gets 29 minutes because he fatigues as quickly and dramatically as anyone in the league…Ray Allen barely works up a sweat in 40 minutes…KG is useless lately despite his stat line last night

  7. We’ll get it together-Celtic Pride baby! Don’t panic, Ainge is on the case. You don’t think Wyc, Pagliuca and co. want to repeat..? They’ll make a move soon enough. No disrespect, I’m a diehard Celts fan, but Lebron was just too much tonight. If we would’ve had James Posey, Dennis Rodman and Mark Eaton we couldn’t have slowed him done. Plain and simple, he wanted it more. The C’s need to find that intensity and swagger again-it’s MIA.

  8. Why when Rondo drives to the hoop and gets fouled four times in a row, do they go away from that. Just keep attacking the hoop, its exactly what Lebron does. No one can stop either of them going to the hoop, only problem is that rondo stops himself by passing off when he has a lay up. Its killing me!!!

  9. I forgot… It seemed like last night when the second unit came in they were scoring, am I watching a different game?

  10. Hey u guys danny ainge is trying to get JJ Redick
    http://www.realgm.com

  11. JJ is the exact same player as eddie house except id rather have house

  12. theres always the scal and baby for morrison trade; id rather have adam than jj anyway

  13. F- that, I would rather have JR Giddens than Redick, can he even dribble the basketball in the NBA??
