*shrugs shoulders as Rondo drains clutch 3's* I truly can't explain what i saw the last 4 minutes. But THANK GOD for Miami. Some good old fashion pure hate coming up Monday to wash this brown streak of a playoff series away.

I don't know why anyone is surprised by this. This loss was as predictable as the sun rising. The level of play? Not so much. A classic crap Rondo performance, followed by the predictable "Bass goes cold" performance. Ray Allen shouldn't even be playing. That being said, don't be surprised the Garden crowd on Saturday turns out to be weak. The general public has spoken: they hate this series. I sadly feel a repeat of Game 7 2009 vs Orlando coming...

Best game of his career. Awesome and much needed. Ray Allen looks like a corpse.

Celtics aren't going anywhere without Bradley seeing as Ray Allen is a corpse on Defense now.

I was 100% sure they would lose game 3. I was wrong. I have no idea what team shows up tonight, but logic says a lesser effort is coming

I love KG, but Duncan is the greatest PF ever to play. His head to head numbers pretty much close the book on that "rivalry".

Too much Bass right now. He's exposed. If this team insists on going small, they need to ride the hot hand and yesterday that was Pietrus, who was yanked way too soon. They also have to figure out how to free up Pierce, who is wearing Iguodala as a shirt currently

Crappy effort, crappy coaching, terrible decision making down the stretch, complete no show by the crowd too. Celtics never win game 3 road games so i expect it 2-2 coming back to Boston. Paul Pierce is officially locked down by Iguodala. That is not good.

He looks like he's being exposed as a starter. He would be a perfect 6th man, but thus far he's been relegated to the bench down the stretch due to matchups. This is where the Celts miss Green.

A fantastic, clutch 4th quarter by everyone involved. I can't say enough how much KG means to this team. He has been the mvp this postseason. Rondo was maddening until his perfect 4th quarter. The bench HAS TO step up. Pietrus, Dooling, Steemer, somebody...has to contribute more than just eating minutes up. At this point with Pietrus i would bench him and roll with Pavlovic, seeing as Moore has 0% chance of getting on the floor.

Nevermind the mixup, why put in an ice cold Daniels over Pietrus at that position? Really strange sequence.

This is why KG is my favorite player. A Hall of Fame performance in a clinching game. He bailed out Doc Rivers' crappiest coaching performance these playoffs. He left Rondo and KG on the bench too long. And the Daniels substitution to guard the 6'10' Hortford was shades of Mike Dunleavy. Next series is going to be tough. If Philly steals 1 it's going the distance.

Always something with Rondo...sigh. I'll be interested to see how Doc reacts to the new ATL lineup. Bradley was rendered a bench warmer last night and the C's need more of him and less of bricklayer Pietrus. Gotta give credit to Larry Drew. He's doing a great job with what he has.

That final 10 seconds is a microcosm of Rondo. Al Hortford and Pierce's knee just made Game 6 scary...

As much as i love KG and Ray, another painful year of managing minutes and being scared of injuries is not appealing. This year is a huge exception, with the lockout and major injuries left and right. The Celtics are winning the battle of attrition, but going forward this team can't compete with Chicago or Miami with an aging roster. Time to see if Rondo is the guy or not next year to build a franchise around.

I agree. Sixers are super athletic and well coached. Jrue Holliday presents a huge challenge for Rondo, plus Philly can put Thaddeus Young at the 4 and effectively render Bass a benchwarmer (much like what ATL is doing now). Woj is right though. I never understood why the national media pretended Wade didn't tackle Rondo. Guy is a legit dirty player now.

Now THAT is a Rondo game. He controled the paced from the jump, every jumper, drive or pass was the right choice. This is the Rondo i love. I'd still like to see Bass get more involved, but that's nitpicking. Now, it's a matter or taking care of business. I have a feeling they will in Game 5.

There you are again dropping the triple doubles again. Meaningless stat you cheerleaders wave around that seem to validate Rondo as a great player. When the game calls for Rondo to SCORE a simple layup and not pass from 2 feet under the basket, that's where the criticism comes from. I will be the first to laud his play when it warrants it.
1 reply
I'm not really understanding you fanboys. Do you enjoy the fact that he missed wide open layups? Or that this game could have been over early if he was aggressive? Yes, he's supremely talented in some areas, but completely inept in others. The reason why it's frustrating is because he's capable of much more. If he wasn't, i would rarely talk about him.
1 reply
I'd prefer "swag" to hit open layups and not walk the ball up.

If you think Rondo was brilliant based on just his numbers, you watched a different game.

Worst playoff win since 2003, when they insulted basketball in a 66-64 crapfest with the Detroit Pistons. People will drool over Rondo's triple double, but he was wildly inconsistent all night. I don't get why he can't dominate Jeff Teague. His 4 missed layups were embarrassing. KG remains the most important part of this team. Please, never retire.

So Bird was moody and Rondo is moody, therefore there's some connection? I'm a little surprised Jackie Mac tossed Bird's name out there like that. She knows the reaction she'll get.
