How’s Our Ass Taste?

With Phoenix playing back-to-back road games and their 4th game in 5 nights, we knew the Celtics had a very good chance to win this one. But I didn’t expect Phoenix to lay down quite like this. Boston College would have put up more of a fight.

The Celtics led by 15 after 1, 30 at the half, and 35 late in the 3rd quarter before finally calling it quits. I took at shot at Shaq in the headline, but in reality, he was the ONLY Phoenix player who showed up (actually, that dude with the pony-tail was extra scrappy in garbage time). Amare Stoudemire had 3 pts, 1 reb in 29 minutes.

Rajon Rondo (23 pts, 7 assts, 5 reb, 2 steals) was running the break and getting into the lane at will. Ray Allen (20 pts, 4-5 3FG) was deadly from beyond the arc. Forced to guard Shaq, KG (16 pts, 8 reb) played tough and controlled the boards. Big Baby (9 pts, 9 reb) and Leon (5 pts, 5 reb) outhustled every Suns player on the court.

Check the shooting percentages in the box score and you’ll see similar numbers by both teams. The difference maker – the Celtics took 22 more shots (making 11 more FGs) thanks to the Suns 23 turnovers.

If the Celtics were shut out in the 3rd quarter, they’d still be up by 6.” – TNT play-by-play guy at the start of the 4th quarter.

  1. Did you see how skinny Shaq made Baby look.. crazy.

  2. I like how Reggie Miller is simply called “TNT Play-by-play guy.”

    I love it.

  3. Great game. Besides the obvious, we saw that quietly, Rajon has developed his jump shot. It was there tonight, and deadly. Big step forward… woe to any team that lays off now daring him to shoot. And Walker had an excellent game. Got a feeling we’re gonna need him later on. POB is… well… still befuddled out there… good on D, but seems to have a short attention span when it comes to protecting the ball. We might be able to win as we are, but it sure would be great to get a reliable big.

  4. defense looks like it is back…rondo is attacking the basket

    i’m confident for thursdays game

  5. So is Tony Allen on the Trading block or what?

    Dude had a minor ankle twist two weeks ago. He hasn’t been with the team, or sitting on the bench, in uniform nor in streetclothes, since.

    I think he already got his walking papers.

  6. Did you guys see how Kenny Smith was totally hating on our Celtics? The guy was totally not interested at half time or post game show. What a jerkoff! Maybe he misses his boyfriend Sir Charles. He clearly said he doesn’t do blow out games.. whatever man! Good luck to your Rockets “JET” Bit** Please. Ernie Johnson said hey lets get to the main event (Cavs vs. L’s). TNT studio was like someone died because Celtics won. I bet you they’ll be all excited if the Suns won the ball game. Someone explain to me why the media acts like this? John? Overall – Very happy to see a blow out game. It was awesome made my night.

  7. Fsantos…I think it was just cuz it was a complete blowout. There really wasn’t anything to say about it…the C’s dominated every facet of the game. There…that’s the analysis haha.

  8. That being said, they definitely could have put some more effort into it and come up with something to talk about.

  9. Where are all the Faker trolls?? I think the way Bill Walker plays in the limited time he’s on the floor should be enough to have Tony Allen traded. We should get something good in return for him. Walker is an upgrade to Allen!!

  10. Well, I watched the rest of the telecast on TNT after all the games and I think they weren’t even into the games because of Dr. King day and the inauguration tomorrow. Which is alright because I am excited about it myself. Have a good one Scott

  11. I am feeling your excitement Shady but “Sky Walker” only had six minutes and indeed had couple of nice dunks but how is he really defensively? We don’t really know yet. If SW can play like this on other team’s first unit then I will be convinced.

  12. You too, Santos.

  13. All I can say about last nights game is that I am SHOCKED Pruitt can get that high off the ground. Holy christ, if he had caught that alley from House I would have wet my pants.

  14. West coast Celtic fans have endured the TNT haters since last season. Its way to fun to watch them eat crow post game.
