The Celtics are going to need to put up 90 reliably to beat the Heat. Raise your hand if you think they're capable of that?

I voted PAIN before the game, and boy did we get it. But you know what? Philly is fighting for their lives on their home court jut to tie the series. Refs were bad, effort was shitty, it was a tough loss. I'm not worried, adjust and move on to next game.

This is the Rondo we were promised...see how amazing he is when he doesn't pass out of his open layups? Great job by the little man tonight.

Rondo's triple-double games are also frequently the games where's he's making the most annoying and stupid plays. This game was no exception. #YourDailyDoseOfHatin'

See, I think James Eisenman has hit the nail on the head here with Rondo. He'll do something flat out awful, and then he'll do something sort of brilliant and you're constantly wondering "Did that 2nd thing just make up for that first thing?" Even you Rondo anti-haters have to admit that he made you scream out in frustration at least a 1/2 dozen times in this game. It never fails that his triple-double games are the ones where I'm most frustrated with him. It's strange.

See, and this is the stuff that will get overlooked because of the bump and the suspension. The bump was dumb and at the worst possible moment, but it can almost be overlooked as a heat-of-the-moment passion stuff. What CANNOT be overlooked is how Rondo played in the rest of the game. People say that he was our saving grace last night and where would we be without him. He scored a bunch and his jump shot was true tonight, those are all good things. He even managed to scrape out double digit assists even though none of his targets could make a shot. What no one except BleedGreen here is point out is that his EFFORT was awful last night. Walking the ball over half court. Making almost no effort to drive the paint and collapse the defense. Getting burned CONSTANTLY by slower players on defense, making our D collapse and giving up easy looks and putback rebounds. Watch the tape, watch him off the ball, you'll see it goes beyond just his stat line. Maybe he's hurt, I dunno. But it just looks like on most possessions he's just not trying very hard.

Yeah but that pouty-face and tough guy demeanor are important part of what Kendrick brings. By his own admission he acts as "big brother" for a team...just muscling opponents and putting some fear in to them. I was never his biggest fan, but I always admired this quality. Stiemboat is still too much of a rookie amongst veterans to have this kind of swagger, but he's getting there. Did you see him strut a little bit after the 3rd/4th/5th blocks against CHA? He'll get that swagger.

His defense is like every other part of his game: inspired at times, aggravatingly lackluster at others. We only criticize because we want him to play up to his potential ALL THE TIME, not just when he feels like it.

Milwaukee just look bad/sloppy out there in the 2nd half...the Celtics were playing pretty good D but it seemed like the Bucks lost this game more than the Celtics won it.

We shred because we want humility and improvement, not because we're abject haters. Rondo takes unnecessary risks with the ball that drive Doc up the wall, and there are growing reports of his attitude problems. There's no I in Ubuntu.

So far in his career, Beasley has shown himself to be a selfish and one-dimensional player. He can score, but he can't do anything else and he's a blight on offensive chemistry. Not excited to get him in the least.

Amen to that! I was just thinking about Leon...kid had heart.

Box out, and the Celtics win this game by 10.

Varejao always kills us, it's kind of amazing. I'm not reading anything in to this loss, a fluke-y 12-0 run to end a game says nothing about the overall health and wellness of this team. The game was exciting and hard fought and all we can do is pick up and move on.

I also like that photo where Pierce is pushing off Mason...OUTTA MY WAY, TRUTH TRAIN COMIN' THROUGH...CHOO CHOO!

Holy shit, they scored 100 points. I can't remember the last time they did that.

While we're in wonderful fantasy land, let's get Rubio as part of the deal. KG and Rondo for Rubio and Love + some picks? Imagine the possibilities...

Bringing in a replacement Kevin as ours withers from age would make me very happy. Can you imagine the love that Boston would show this kid?

Rondo played absolute shit defense in that game. He got lost on absolutely EVERY pick and roll, resulting in gaping holes in the interior and necessitating the bigs to leave their men to cover. Kid just looked lazy the whole game.

Trading for this guy is just a terrible idea, no matter what our situation is.

Who are all these shmucks? This roster is not inspiring me with a ton of confidence.
