Sugar Ray!!!!

Ray Allen's three pointer from the corner with .5 seconds left beat Philly tonight 100-99.

This may have been the sloppiest game the Celtics have played all season. They ran Philly into the ground in the first quarter (32-20), but that was negated by the horror show of turnovers in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. They tightened things up in the 4th and somehow managed to squeak out the win. Until Ray's 3, Pierce (29 pts) was the money man down the stretch.

Rajon Rondo nearly had a triple double – 20 pts, 8 assists, 7 TO

The refs did the Celtics no favors.

What the hell happened to Elton Brand?

I may be sick as hell with diarrhea pouring out of me, but I'm still able to give you this:

    Rays the man win it comes to the big shot give me ray everytime I think he neeeds a good knickname how bout clutch.

  • Baron

    DRJ, I agree with your original post until you say ” To beat the top teams like LA, Cleveland and San Antonio, we can’t have 2nd quarters like that.”
    We ARE the top team, and defending champs, its those teams that have to not have 2nd quarters like that 2 beat us, we’re proven..this isnt last year

  • Bill

    Doc deserves a lot of credit. Brilliant play Doc. Someone on one of the Celtics shows said that Doc had the best results of any coach in the league following a timeout. Last night proved that. Great pass by Truth, great shot by Ray.

  • FSantos: HGHJames? Explain, I’m curious.
    Either way, despite the refs and the horrible ball handling, Ray and Paul bail the Celtics out of a game they deserved to lose. A win that should be put in the “Wins That Aren’t As Good As Others” column, but I’ll take it. Damn, Ray is a killer!
    Bring on the Lakers! I’m gonna miss the game, sadly, but I’ll be rooting in spirit!

  • NO shit! Ray is the man! Did Elton Brand get benched? Did he even have a field goal..? Anyways, a few too many turnovers tonight, but once again Superman and SugarRay make it all better. Is anyone else PUMPED for Thursday or what?!?

  • Fsantos33

    M’Fin Refs tried to put a Lose on us – We were actually playing 5 (C’s) vs. 8 (Phil) (3 Refs) – Nice try F U refs. Damn, Beautiful dagger by Ray Ray – He had a flu too. Great Ending! Much love to Big Baby Davis did he man up or what (Double Double night) – Also to Reggie Evans great energy but no cigar.

  • Josh

    Greatest thing about that win is laughing at Igudala for his premature celebration.

  • Wow Chuck…. uhhhh… thanks for the visual.
    That last play shows how great Paul Pierce is. Somone else *cough* *cough* Kobe Bryant *cough* would have forced it up there. Pierce found the open man.
    Lucky for us, the open man was Ray Allen

  • thetitleisours

    That was HUGE as it would have been a very tough loss to swallow.
    How about Doc letting Big Baby play most of the game? What a difference since the beginning of the year.
    Sorry about your “ailment” Laker fans have that effect on all of us I think

  • G4L

    Man Horrible game by the refs. Pierce had a great game and Ray Ray.. well he’s just the man!! Allstar team anyone!

  • Steve

    Man, was I sour when Iguodala was galavanting up the court like a 9-year old. He must’ve forgot that there were six seconds left, and he was playing against a team with one of the best pure shooters in NBA history.
    Credit where credit is due, people: Doc Rivers drew up an insane play, and Paul Pierce executed to perfection.
    Massive win. Let’s make it 13 in a row on Thursday.

  • Rush

    am pretty sure the “others” we’re fist-pumping and shouting “haha take that boston” after ai’s jumper. but rayray said “not tonight” and promptly made them shit in their pants.
    see ya thursday.

    ATTN: Andre Iguodala, Kobe Bryant, and all other national basketball association personnel not named ‘Sam Cassell’
    Please reserve the ‘big balls’ dance for a shot that actually impacts the outcome of a game. It is awfully silly to see the aforementioned dance performed in a regular season loss.
    Warm regards,
    -Walter Ray Allen

  • Mike O

    hahaha suffering from the ol’ pissing out the ass, ey John? Huge win, keep rolling until Thursday.

  • mgs1211

    WOO! what a game

  • DRJ

    – The fix is in. Seems like the refs are trying hard to give us an L every time out.
    – BBD was friggin awesome. He will never be tall enough and probably never jump high enough, but the kid can PLAY and we don’t win this game without him. Great job.
    – 20 TOs is way too many, tho to be fair quite a few of them were improper ref-TOs. Lousy 2nd quarter though, any way you slice it. Rondo’s gotta remember to keep up the focus and intensity even when the Cs are up 14.
    – To beat the top teams like LA, Cleveland and San Antonio, we can’t have 2nd quarters like that.

  • droopy

    those refs were bad tonight. i swear they had money on the sixers. it was painful to watch.. huge win. with KG out rondo is his temporary sub in the big three. he better be in the skills comp with ray playing in the game

  • ssshady35

    The refs were horable but we would not of had to worry about them if we took care of the rock, we had over 20 turnovers in the game. We need to take care of the ball and our wins will come much easier!! As for RAY RAY, he does this every year, he’s there for the game winning shot. I’m glad KG was able to get some rest these last couple days he should be ready to kick some Faker ass thursday night!!

  • MJ’s Ambassador

    thursday’s game is quite interesting because it’s kind of a lose-lose situation for the celtics. this game is no longer going to be as exciting since it isn’t two teams playing at full strength. lakers fans will surely take advantage of that very convenient arrangement. if the celtics win, they will state that it’s because of bynum’s absence. basically, they will say that it wasn’t a fair fight. if the celtics lose, then that will give them sufficient ammunition to come attack this web site until they lose in the playoffs. so lakers fans, you are lucky to have such a comfortable arrangement. but, as they say, it’s in the playoffs where it truly counts.

    Just FYI: skipping games and commenting on Celtics blog sites is not appropriate behavior for an assistant coach.

  • Tim (FD)

    Lakers game only 42.5 hours away.

  • CatchinFire

    DRJ – the refs have sucked in almost every game this year. Tim Donaghey repeat?? Im sure david stern has something to do with it…
