I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Utah.
(Deron) Williams said the (foul) calls instantly killed his rhythm, taking him out of a game that he was pumped to play in the hope that Utah would rediscover its “swagger.”
(CJ) Miles pointed out, though, that the Jazz allowed themselves to be mentally removed from the contest as fouls quickly piled up, which, in turn, allowed a machinelike Boston squad to fire away at will.
I tuned into this game late, so I'm unsure if the early foul calls were unfair. I don't believe the Jazz are blaming the officials, instead making the point that they lost their rhythm.
Since the Jazz bloggers slept in today… I decided to have some fun and pull comments from SLC Dunk.
Boston is a machine
I love Boston’s court. Best in the NBA, in my opinion.
He's (Tommy Heinsohn) such a homer that it turns into comedy.
Stop trying to prove something Al
Ray Allen is disgusting. That 3 and 1 was amazing.
How are you guys losing to the Celtics? They are OLD OLD OLD! All you have to do is run around the court and you can win easily right? I thought that was the plan.
Can you imagine how lethal this Celtics team would have been 5 years ago?
They're pretty lethal right now.
I want to turn it off but can't. Pretty sure Dr. Kevorkian is recording this now.
Great stuff… especially when you are on the winning side of a blowout.
