Recap: Team effort beats Hawks

Chuck - Red's Army December 16, 2010 Uncategorized 13 Comments on Recap: Team effort beats Hawks


The Celtics just keep on chuggin' along. It doesn't matter which players take they floor, they just keep on winning.

Tonight's victim – an uninspired Hawks team (missing Joe Johnson and Jamal Crawford).

The Cs toyed with Atlanta for the first half, but cranked up the offense in the 3rd quarter (36 points) and clamped down the defense (allowed 21 points) in the 4th quarter.

How is this for balance? Glen Davis with 18 points, 10 rebounds. KG had 17 points, 14 rebounds. Paul Pierce with 15 points, 10 assists. Ray Allen with 18 points, 6 assists and 4 steals. Nate Robinson had 14, Semih Erden had 10 points (not sure how a 7-footer can go w/o a rebound in 24 minutes).

I love Pierce and Ray combining for 16 assists. With Rajon Rondo out, those guys took it upon themselves to distribute the ball. The Celtics finished with 28 assists on 50 baskets.

Luke Harangody and Avery Bradley saw minutes together in the 1st quarter. Harangody managed 4 points. Bradley was repeatedly torched by Jeff Teague (18 points).

Von Wafer (sore back) was unavailable in the 2nd half.

    HOW U LIKE THEM APPLES NOW?? Without a doubt the worst so called cltics fan I’ve come across. Bagged the shit outa them when they were crook and doesn’t show up when we’re firing.

    Pierce with 10 assists, they did a great job moving the ball considering Rondo is gone. Right now they’re unstoppable. Nate still needs to calm down at times.

  • Mileke

    these men are playing inspired basketball, you can almost see the GOLD in their eyes, its unbelievable…. set-back after set-back, and they still fight hard, and the beauty to it all is that they’re having fun doing it, they’re happy, the bench is always engaged, its a joy to see, and the FANS love it too, did ya’ll hear the GARDEN today, I couldnt hear the commentators on the tv for alot of the 2nd half! all i’m left to say is #CelticNation! 12 in a row, and we are nowhere near through! i lovee my team!

    Big Baby 30 charges! Wow

  • Mileke

    KWAPT thats The best quote i’ve heard all season? ”so what you gonna do? you gonna quit? put on your clothes and go home? that aint the way we do things around here, we work!” -KG ! loved it!

  • Stan

    anyone seen big baby’s flagrant-1 on zaza? zaza was flopping his arms like a chicken getting tasered. hilarious.

  • Nora

    zaza and it seems alot of euro players have no shame. This should be a top priority for refs–ignore overdramatic flopping.

  • DRJ

    Better yet, they should make really egregious flopping tech-worthy. Those would be the ONLY techs I’d ever be happy to see.
