Another Lazy Sunday

RedsArmyAdmin March 15, 2009 Uncategorized 15 Comments on Another Lazy Sunday

Anyone else tired of the Celtics ruining their Sunday afternoons? They've lost 4 out of their last 5 Sunday afternoon games.

The effort in this one was downright disgusting. The Celtics shot 37% and committed 25 turnovers. A team this careless with the ball will NOT win an NBA title.

Pierce, Ray and Rondo shot a combined 8-36. Give the Bucks credit, they (especially Luc Richard Mbah a Moute) did a great job taking Ray out of the game.

The gem in this pile of crap? Kendrick Perkins – 26 pts, 12 reb. Mikki Moore (9 pts, 4 reb) also played a decent game.

Can you say 3rd seed? The Celtics and Magic are now tied in the loss column.

    Ray and PP played big minutes this time too… so we’re losing games and the second seed AND they will be tired in the playoffs. Fantastic indeed.

    TURNOVERS TURNOVERS TURNOVERS thats all I have to say.WTF!!

    I know I mention the refs a lot (but that’s only because they suck a lot), but they were completely clueless all night. I mean they screwed up calls both ways all game. ALL GAME.
    Pierce has been pathetic lately, can’t even hit free throws anymore. Ray’s been in a shooting slump. Those things happen, but it’s getting ridiculous. It’s the effort and the sloppiness that’s really pissing me off. I used to think KG got too much much credit for “transforming the organization” but it’s been obvious to anyone watching that since he’s been out the energy level has been immensely lacking. Can’t wait to have him back. Really getting fed up with this team taking bottom feeders lightly and giving away these games. I was half expecting/hoping Doc would start the second half benching the starters. Yeah, it was that pathetic.
    BTW, House hurt himself near the end of the game, seemed like he was trying to get sub, didn’t, was limping through the ensuing defensive possession. Seriously, what’s going on there? First, how bad is he hurt? Second, why on Earth doesn’t Doc sub him?
    Oh, Perk is a BEAST!!!! Wow.
    Powe is a beast, going up against, who? Villaneuva and you don’t feed him constantly? How can that not be a top match-up. Doc’s not stepping up during these injuries.

    I still can’t decide if it’s worse getting my afternoon ruined via watching the score add up on on the Celtics website or being able to watch it live on TV.

    i’m officialy done watching the celtics until KG returns. the team plays without any energy. its like waching pre season games but the calander shows mid march.
    if i have to find somthing good out of this crap is the tought that just maybe the c’s would start the playoffs like the 1995 -heart of a champion- houston rockets style.

    I don’t agree that the energy was not there tonight… it was, on defense. But this is the first game I can remember over the past 2 seasons where the Cs were actually OUTPLAYED on defense. We were good on D, they were better. That, and stone cold shooting from the 2 guys we rely on for offense and it was really amazing that we were only down by 3-4 points so late in the game. Absent the lucky 3-pointer by Bell at the last minute, we had a chance to win. Which, actually, is a good sign… We can play such piss-poor basketball and still be in the game. I think that’s ascribable to a good defensive effort by the Cs, even if it was not as good as Milwaukee’s.
    If either Paul or Ray had had a half-decent offense, we win. Since it’s rare that they are both off at the same time like this, and rarer still that both KG and Powe cannot contribute, overall I think this game indicates we’re GOOD TO GO for the playoffs… once KG comes back and Paul stop throwing up bricks. (Ray I’m not worried about… everybody has a bad game sometime.)

    Thank God they don’t play Sunday afternoon games in the playoffs

  • kurt

    wow! how the mighty celts have fallen!
    i guess banner #18 won’t be realized for another 22 years, again!!!

  • Lakeshowlosers

    When do we get to start admitting Marburg has not helped us weather the storm of injuries. When are all of you gonna agree with me. Yes we have injuries. That’s why we r losing! Marbury was supposed to help us. He hasn’t.

  • ssshady35

    The guy hasn’t played all season!! Do you think he’s going to come in and average a triple dub? TROLLLLLLL

  • OCLakers

    I just hope the Celtics are healthy when they play in Cleveland on April 12. It is important to beat the Cavs on their home court. I think a lot of you are being too hard on the team considering all the injuries. I really want to see Lakers Celtics in the finals. Beating LeBron and the Cavs won’t mean much to the Lakers.

  • ShooterMcGavin

    am i the only one not remotely comcerned with the celtics?
    they’re definently in the “we have nothing to prove” mode, they’ll get the number 2 seed, which without kg for a month is exactly what you would expect
    this team thrives on intensity, can you blame them for lackin it when they play the bucks on a sunday afternoon without kg?
    this team is fine, they’re still the champs, and if i were a fan of another taem i wouldn’t want to face them in the playoffs, when the intensity is jacked up…just how the celtics like it

  • Jon

    The only thing I’d like to add to these comments is that I really didn’t like it when Doc had Marbury and Rondo at the same time and Marbury was bringing the ball up. Rondo is DEFINITELY not a shooting guard.
