last run ?????? lets get ray ray and kg resigned for the vet minim(or low contracts) resign hollins sign a center and bring back bass and let the rookies get another year(then another two first round picks late though so probably less impact players) then sign two backups and we have a deep squad next year with great veteran leadership all a san antionio spurs (vets and young's guys mixing well)

I think doc left in the starters way too long. We had a 25 point lead with around 10 to 8 minutes left. there is where all of the big 3 should have came out first kg, next pierce, then ray ray then rondo. Everyone has been playign too many minutes as is and the rest could have been well needed. Also giving the bench players like etwuan moore and marquis some time would have been beneificial. If the game ends up going to under 15 points in a matter of 4 minutes then you put everyone back in. Doc's playing with fire keeping all these veterans in for extended amount of minutes each game. Lets just hope he doesnt get burned and one gets knocked out of the playoffs

if rondo can consistently attack the rim and finish and actually be an offensive threat for this team on a consistent basis then the rest of the nba better watch out. If rondo is attacking the hoop like he was tonight then opposing teams have to watch for that and help on him driving. If thats happening it makes everyone else on the celtics offense that much easier along with a consistent scoring option because rondo just about beat everyone to the hoop. All in all great game. KG FOR MVP

not complaining about the officiating but it was a different type of officiating then every other game. The last 3 weeks every reefing squad in the league has called touch fouls and bumps constantly. All of a sudden this squad of nab refs decide to let the celtics and philly play (except on offense fouls i think they're were more offensive calls than regular calls last night) Each team was killing the other team and hacking and bumping and pushing and no calls were given. Then in the 3rd quarter give some touch fouls to the phillys but besides that they were constant and I have no problem with that. My problem is that this reefing squad isn't the same with the last 3 weeks of nba refs i have watched on tv. It's like an ump who calls a high pitch out of the strike zone a strike consistently. You realize the way he's calling it so you know to swing at it but you know every other ump doesn't call that strike

yea but the celtics were getting away with a lot too. It just seemed like we weren't ready to play like that escpicially ryan holings and steisma who gave up easy shots to (brand who basically broke the drought for phillty )when they should have been bumping pushing and shoving him. On the other hand philly was ready to play like that and were doing everything to the celtics bumping pushing reaching hacking etc which was smart bc the refs had shown that they were going to let them play

Also if they're is something worse than nba reffing it's nba national tv announcers

the refs let both teams play last night, both teams were killing eachother and no fouls got called thats why both teams had extended droughts during the game. Kg was getting hacked and bumped and pushed and for the last 3 weeks every reffiing squad in the nba called fouls for plays like that. Reffing squads letting teams play is something i'd prefer my only complaint is that every other reffing sqaud in the nba doesn't ref like that and calls touch fouls constanly which gets the players used to getting those calls. The gametape will show that both teams were hacking eachother and bo9th teams were expecting fouls call espically rondo and kg.

I have been saying this for years about Rondo. He plays great but just makes dumb basketball designs at points in the game.Over the past few years I have developed a list that describes all the dumb stuff rondo does that could easily be fixed by coaching. I am not even going to bash his shot which most people will try and point pint when bashing rondo. I however have no problem with his jumpshot, he can't shoot I get it he might get better but I accept what he is. However on the other hand he has to stop doing these things which as a celtics fan who watches about every game every season and as someone who has played basketball since he was 3 years old and has been obsessed ever since have noticed about rondo 1)Passing the ball with one hand (some passes look cool but look at the tape when he makes one handed passes compared to two hand passes theres a much better chance it is going to be a turnover)2)walking the ball up the court(constantly wasting precious shot clock then putting a teammate in a bad situation with a low shot clock) 3)not finishing Strong at the hoop when he gets penetration (he will turn up a 4 foot layup for a pass out to a shooter or when he decides to go for the layup he never goes strong aka his little weird spin shots or just floating it) 4)not finishing with the left hand on the left side(self explanatory he's in the NBA but doesn't take left hand layups with his left hand instead putting weird spin) 5) passing up open layups for hard passes and 20 foot jumpshots another celtics( a point I already made but rondo has to take these layups to make teams believe he is a threat offensively THIS WILL MAKE THINGS MUCH EASIER FOR KG RAY RAY AND THE CAPTAIN PAUL PIERCE 6)lacsidazical defense when off the ball( doubling for no reason or just leaving his guy open 7) cheating for steals and getting burned( Rondo man is constantly burning him if it wasn't for kg and the celtics d who bail him out his defensive rating would be much worse by the supposed critics) These are all things that rondo does constantly night in and night out. I feel with a little coaching and practice rondo could easily incorporate or unincorporate all these points into his game. I feel he would be an expotianlly better player and without these mistakes could be one of the top 5 players in the league. for people who will hate on this post all i can say is look at the tape and for people who agree or want to put out other points in rondo's game that infuriates them then let me no

let it be known im a rondo hater and i always have been even. I have two rants for this game one just my feeling on rondo as a player and second how rondo played during this game. i feel like any pg on this team could put up the type of numbers rondo does on a season basis if given a healthy Big 3 celtics. Ive typed 100s of times on this website ranting about rondo and his defiencies and just all around uninteligent basketball. 1)Passing the ball with one hand, 2)walking the ball up the court, 3)not finishing Strong at the hoop when he gets penetration (aka his little weird spin shots or just floating it) 4)not finishing with the left hand on the left side, 5) passing up open layups for hard passes and 20 foot jumpshots another celtics 6)lacsidazical defense when off the ball, and finally 7) cheating for steals and getting burned and relying on kg and the celtics d to bail him out. Ive had these feelings on a night in night out basis after wathcing rondo play and I really beleive that most if not all of them can be fixed by coaching. If doc was to just point out these flaws and tell rondo to work on them during pratctice and elimante the one handed passese that are hard to catch or finish strong at the hoop so teams actually have to defend you and maybe even double team you . However if he doesnt then rondo well stay about the same i believe deleivering out flashy assists but never really being a huge threat to an opposing team. Everyone can say what they want to that comment but the ATlanta Hawks defense and basically the rest of the nba doesnt even play within 5 feet of rondo on set defense. However as much as I hate rondo and all those things that he does I have to say that what he does and how he does it is infuriating but amazing and crazy to watch. Rondo lead the team emotionally and delivers passes on the spot and everyone loves him for it.Hell make a much needed steal when the time is right and everyone on the team will love it. He energizes the team with his plays but then in the next instant have a bonehead play. he was brillaint then dumb then brilliant then lucky but throughout it all he got his trile double and I would even go as much to say he took over the 4th quarter. Its the fact that rondo shows these flashes of brilliance on some plays and then does something on my list the next play that hurts the celtics that kills me to wathc him. He should be destroing jeff teague every possesion for easy layups instead he does it sometimes or when he feels like it. He should be pushing every possesion then slowiubng it down for every1 to catch up, instead he wlaks the ball up the court and he waste shotclock. If he could just fix the holes in his game mentally he would be a much better player and could be one of the best players in the leaugue if not the best.

maybe rondo can practice his lefty and righty layups during his suspension as well as his defense bc sure he has some flashy steal that look good on stats but how many times did he get burned that lead kg to help which then lead to an easy offesenive rebound for atlanta watch the tape beleive me its alot
1 reply
rondo was only mad bc that ref was sucking the whole game and he blatantly missed an out of bounds call 40 seconds before missing the a jump ball call, this just goes to my point of nba refs suck #NBARefsSuck tweet me is you feel the same way as i do that nba refs suck and its a disgrace the nest basketball league in the world has quesionable at best refereeing @NBARefsSUck

Ive been saying since last year the celtics should mix the big 3 up. Last year during the playoffs I wrote on this website the Celtics would have been better suited putting pierce on the bench with jeff green starting because it the big 3 the ability to take more shots and for one of them to play against lower competition and then jeff green would have been able to play and run with rondo giving him someone in transition to run with. This is the same instance just different position. Bradley can run with rondo and bring all the other stuff to the table that you guys have brought up. Ray Ray then gets to play agianst bench players while also having the ability to take more shots and control the ball because the bench needs scoring and people who want the ball. I think it is a win-win for the celtics bench and starters if avery starts and ray ray comes off the bnech ie manu ginobli

i wouldnt come close to saying the clippers even now are even close to the amount of talent that the celtics have and rondo's defense is clouded becuase of celtics ability to help and i still beleieve the big 3 are still all playing at high levels

did i say attack all agme long??? I said push for rondo to push all day long he can bring it out when hes out numbered but when hes not pusing the offense slows down and does worse, second i don't give a fuck about athleticism box the fuck out and man up this is the nba u get paid to rebound the basketball then rebound the basketball and how do you do that you box out.

I would do that trade in a second for dwight howard. Your an idiot if you can't beleive that the big 3 with Dwight howard and a pg who could atcually shoot would do to the celtics. IF WE GOT DWIGHT WE WOULD BE INSTANT CONTENDERS. .Danny's job is to win championchips and with dwight howard we would be unstoppable as the same celtic team but with a rebounding force, defensive monster, and offensive juggernaut. I would even do the trade without an agreement of dwight signing in the offseason. The big 3 window is closing and this is the year to go all in for. Its on us to make dwight howard love boston and re-sign but thats gettign a head of ourselves. If dwight came to boston for that trade we would look at a HOWARD GARNETT PIERCE RAY RAY ETWUAAN MOORE/AVERYBRADLEY?KEYON DOOLING PG?(BUYOUT FREE AGENT PG) and that line up is 100 percent top flight contender and would be my favorite to win it all not the HEAT.

simple probelms doc could fix attack the offensive board with more than one player tell ronod to push the ball at all times whetehr the older guys can keep up or not tell everyone to box out on defense espcially kg and the big men i could go into a whole lit on stuff doc should say to rondo to fix his game which would improve the celtics in my mind but this post isn't about rondo hating it's about questioning the "INTOUCHABLE DOC RiVERS"
1 reply
doc's making excuses hes got to be held some what resposible for the record of the celtics instead of anwsering reporters questions when the celtics lose with "We were tired tonight" " or we didn't have enough energy) were not just losing energy battles were losing because of the basketball x and o execution. a i mean i can tell from my lviing room where everyone in the celtic offense is going to io am sure an nba team with scouting and gameplanning can tell too
