Recap: Celtics give Lakers lesson in team basketball

Chuck - Red's Army January 30, 2011 Uncategorized 145 Comments

Garnett

Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work. – Vince Lombardi

There's nothing better than watching Kobe Bryant carry the Lakers for three quarters, only to fall short at the end because of a complete team effort by the Celtics.

Kobe was brilliant – 41 points, 16 – 29 FG. But when a star takes 29 shots, his teammates stop playing and start watching. And that's what happened in the 4th quarter.

Glen Davis (13 points, 4 rebounds) made some HUGE plays in the 4th quarter. How about that pivot move on Andrew Bynum that resulted in a three point play? Or that charge he drew on Kobe with 2:55 remaining?

Paul Pierce was red hot in the 3rd quarter. He dropped 14 of his 32 points. The beauty of Paul – he didn't need to dominate the ball in the 4th. He let his teammates do the work.

Kevin Garnett was phenomenal – 18 points, 9-12 FG, 13 rebounds and 5 assists. He was the main reason why the Celtics outrebounded LA 43-30.

Ray Allen (21 points, 8-12 FG) had 5 big points that helped the Celtics pull away late in the game.

Rajon Rondo was a non-factor in the 1st half. He finished with 10 points and 16 assists. His 2nd half performance was a complete 180. 15 assists came after halftime!

Nate Robinson (11 points, 3-5 3FG) played his best game in weeks. 

Maybe Jerry West was right to criticize the Lakers defense. The Celtics shot 60% and had 34 assists.

Pau Gasol was a non-factor. 12 points, 5-13 FG and an astonishing -20. A healthy KG is a huge reason why.

    AWESOME game. Completely turned my day around.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5cd064970c Count Istvan 17-11 9-3.

    Me thinks the mouths will be a little less mouthy now. At least until the next time. Anyway off to celebrate the way Red would with a victory cigar.

  • Alex

    Where are the Laker trolls?

  • Phenor Jenkins

    Man we lost the nba finals. wait this isnt the nba finals? o ya nvm we won the nba finals. HAHAHA PUT THAT IN UR PIPE AND SMOKEIT

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f2d28d7970c BigMck

    Stop living in the past. Your team got its asses kicked… at home.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/kwapt KWAPT

    I was complaining on Twitter that Rajon needed to do more in the 2nd half. He had 15 assists in the 2nd half alone. He heard me. Just a great effort. It was good to see Nate get hot again, and good to see Baby do what he NEEDS to do-take it to the hoop and score underneath. The other AMAZING stat today, Shaq has 0 points and we still drop 109. Wow. This team can win it all this year if it wants to. As long as they stay hungry and healthy, sky’s the limit. This next 3 weeks will be fun: Heat, Magic, Fakers again, Mavs…strap-in C’s fans. But enjoy this win for now…..

  • KY Celts fan

    Out trying to convince themselves that this game doesn’t mean anything.

  • Lee in Oregon

    Take that laker trolls, if you’re still around. At this point I would say the Spurs are the best in the West.

  • KY Celts fan

    Yeah but all those games are at home. Going to take a lot beat this team when they’re focused, which they will be for all four of those games.

  • trytryagain

    Hats off to the C’s, they dominated the 4th. The game? No sir. But kudos nonetheless.
    LAKER FANS:Man up and take it on the chin. The Celtics beat us in a regular season game, it’s not indicative of much. Show some class.
    CELTIC FANS: Tip o’ the cap. Show some class as well, it’s only one game in a season. PS – KG is a bleeder?!?!?

  • Phenor Jenkins

    This game means somthing? what? What does it mean exacly?

  • Yep

    Celtics all happy over a REGULAR SEASON GAME?? Haaaaaaaaaaaa “Stewie Griffin Voice” The Celtics are just like the Jets beat the Patriots & that was their SUPERBOWL. Win back to back championships then talk.

  • Nora

    Time for KG to tell Gasoft he lost a step! LOL

  • Nora

    Refs didn’t help Lakers too much this time

  • Mileke

    -How about Ray, he’s 13 3’s away from passing Reggie Miller for all-time 3 pointers made?
    -Nate had his best game in a while
    -Love the double-double by KG, cause he was really battling for position for all 13 rebounds
    -Pierce wakes up for games like this
    -Rondo showed nice poise in the 2nd half, after a very forgettable 1st half, he kept playing, and got nice results
    -Glen Davis was awesome through the ham-string injury, loved it
    -Perks presence was a KEY factor also, the stats dont show it, but he was a huge difference maker
    -Shaq was again robbed of minutes by the refs, but in the time he did have, he was phenomenal, but the stats wont show his efforts
    -Marquis- well this is a night for you to forget
    -Good Win Celtics, we are now 36-11 and still are 3 games over the HEAT!
    -Nicee team ball!

  • john schaffer

    the celtics finally played likt the celtics lakers have kobe thats it

  • javagoogle

    Heyu!
    Remember that L we took earlier (maybe the Bulls or Mavs game, not sure)? when this happened?
    (words are paraphrased, cos searching would take time away from enjoying this one.)
    Someone: “This is the worst loss ever…!!!”
    You: “No, the worst loss will be on Jan 30.”
    You were so droll, so sure. I though you had a time machine or sumthing. Well.
    Q:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVzvRsl4rEM
    Good game tho.
    See you again on the 10th.

  • Nora

    Sorry we can’t win back to back championships we don’t have the refs to hand them to hand them to us.

  • Classless

    Shut the fuck up. It’s a message board. Stop trying to be Nelson Mandela.

  • Nora

    Also don’t you even have the nerve to say you Laker trolls would not be in here gloating about this if Lakers win. You are liars if you deny it.

  • Classless

    Typical deflection of a Fakers loss. that’s what Fakers fans do. Pretend the immediate result didn’t happen and default to “..but we won the title so nothing matters”.
    That’s not the statements I was hearing before the game. Frauds, all of you.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    No the celtics dont have the team to go back2back.

  • CelticsMascot

    Yes. I will put victory in my pipe and smoke it.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    1 and done yaaaay

  • Nora

    No as proven they don’t have the REFS. Lakers are going no where this year as the Lakers only have Kobe though.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    I will put a championship victory into my pipe and smoke that shit.

  • Classless

    An team beats a rapist, I mean individual, pretty much everytime. A healthy KG is so important to Boston, as seen in this game. He neutralized Gasol and Odom for most of the game.
    Semi-related: Did anyone notice the nauseating, contrived meet up of Kobe and his wife and kids at the half? NOBODY in the league ever does this in front of cameras except for him. Still trying to convince people he’s a good guy. Give it up.

  • Mileke

    Not that this game serves any importance, but it was nice to get revenge, and we dont wanna loose no reg. season game, we have something to play for this year, something you Laker trolls cant find, and this win goes a long way into doing what we want to do this year, just give us our props, and excuse yourself from here,&& win 17 championships, then talk, matter-of-fact win 7 in a row, then talk, matter-of-fact we are 9-3 against you sorry bastards in the FINALS, so you dont even wanna go there, back-to-back championships? ya’ll had a freebie in 09 and ya’ll know it, the MAGIC never had a chance that year, we will kick ya’ll ass, done deal, and ya’ll had a freebie against us in Game 6 this year, feed that shit to the birds!

  • Phenor Jenkins

    We did win the tittle, so this doesnt really matter.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5cd064970c Count Istvan 17-11 9-3.

    Usually you’re putting your pipe in Joesph or fear LA’s mouth and they smoke it.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    proven? bye whom?

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f2d28d7970c BigMck

    Fakers fans are busy bitching about Gasol. Some want to trade him for Melo. I was just on Lakers Nation… its a shit show over there.

  • Nora

    Continue to talk trash trolls. You people are a waste of time

  • itsthatbradguy

    Watched the game on ABC, and can’t help but hope Marc Jackson ends up coaching the Lakers one day. His incessant blabbing about how Kobe Bryant needs to just keep taking shots and forcing the issue by himself and then bragging about how he did so (and as a result our lead grew & grew) leads me to believe we’d win a lot more games in the series over them. You would think a guy who was such a great assist man would value ball movement a little more.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    The celtics are not the champions, so no championship pipe for u!

  • bkgreen17

    If you get to live in the past now then why don’t we? 2008 Game 6, 92-131? Ring a bell? We can play this game all day, buddy.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5cd064970c Count Istvan 17-11 9-3.

    Yup.

  • bkgreen17

    We? If I’m not mistaken you don’t play for the Lakers, you didn’t contribute at all to their winning a title.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    Again 1 and done. Game 7 wasnt that long ago.
    celtic fan owned NEXT PLEASE

  • Phenor Jenkins

    Thats the best you got? really?

  • lakeb

    lakers- 2 time champions, celtics- 1 time chamion. kobe 5 rings (going to be 6 like mj this year), pierce 1 ring. gasol 2 rings, garnett only 1 ring. gasol owns garnett and garnett is the most overrated player in nba history. also this game didnt mean anything, lakers still the champs till someone takes it from them in june. so good game today celtics, it was cute how hard you tried, but all lakers care about is winning in june

  • paul

    Been waiting six months for this game. I just cannot say what a good feeling I’m having right now!!

  • thetitleisours

    And you only got that by injuring Perk – smoke that!

  • MightyCeltics

    Laker trolls… Even when they lose they still are out trolling.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    And the celtics only got 08 because of a injured bynum YOU SMOKE THAT

  • bkgreen17

    It appears as though we have radically different ideas of the word “owned.” The past is the past. You don’t get to pick and choose which parts of it count as legitimate support in an argument. The fact that you guys won it all last year doesn’t lessen then win tonight or make it any less stupid that even after losing you’re STILL trolling.

  • bkgreen17

    Is all you’ve got “we won the title. nothing else matters.” Welcome to the present, my friend.

  • Phenor Jenkins

    Sign of defeat? ill take it I WIN I WIN I WIN I WIN

  • http://yahoo.com ShutUp

    Congrats on winning a regular season game! I bet you feel as great as we did when we won game 7 :) It was pretty close until the last few minutes even though it was basically 1 on 5. The Lakers didn’t play defense and the Celtics shot 60%. The Lakers sucked and the Celtics played their best… and it was still a close one. It sucks to lose, but it’s just 1 loss at the end of the day. Go Lakers!

  • http://profile.typepad.com/pricehook44 Ainge still lives

  • http://profile.typepad.com/pricehook44 Ainge still lives

    Yea it looked like Kobe didn’t care ball hog.

  • thetitleisours

    They cannot win when the ref’s call an even game, or injure guys like Perk

  • http://profile.typepad.com/pricehook44 Ainge still lives

    Copy that.

  • CFH

    I also enjoyed round 684709 of Mark Jackson claiming Ray Allen’s shooting is more a gift and less a product of him working hours every day for 20 years. Guess Mark’s teams won’t need to practice… they’ll just naturally hit shots or they won’t.

  • thetitleisours

    Yeah we beat LA WITH Bynum in the regular season that year. He means nothing
    as that proves.

    Yeah we beat LA WITH Bynum in the regular season that year. He means nothing

    Good win, but it’s only a season game. Nothing to brag about. We’ll have to keep this up in the Finals. Let’s go, C’s!

    Why show class when they keep coming around talking about the past and living in it? This just proves we are better without EVERYBODY healthy. Just wait till Delonte and JO come back we gonna dominate the Fakers.

  • piercewearsgreenpanties

    one loss to celtics in season means nothing even if we won its all about finals 08 and 2010 no bynum and no perkins 1-1 fuck you celtic fans anyways have fun with this win c you next time in boston no bandwagon fan here GOOO LAKERSSSSSS

  • RealTalkBostonCelticsFans

    Well let’s see one was against Orlando and last year was a fluke. Are you really gonna keep bringing up the past. Man you’re so sad it’s pathetic just end your life already.

    Naw I feel as great I did in 2008 when WE CRUSHED AND SPIT IN ALL OF YOUR FACES game 6 remember? Yup I bet you guys still have nightmares about that.

  • RealTalkBostonCelticsFans

    A fight? You wouldn’t even last one second you douche bag.
    Why would we troll your site when THIS IS A BOSTON CELTICS SITE not a lakers site. But, I wouldn’t expect you to understand and comprehend something simple like that.

  • piercewearsgreenpanties

    haha funny how few years ago we were waiting for you too and we rocked you, this year you got some revenge in the season, go have a orgasm to this win well settle this score in june

  • RealTalkBostonCelticsFans

    fuck you too troll.

  • Mileke

    Gasol got only 1 ring vs. KG, Kobe only got 1 ring vs. Pierce, talk about the times we have played each other, not who else ya’ll beat in the finals (Orlando dont count anyway) Kobe also has always had a supporting cast around him, unlike Pierce, and what other acknowledgments do Gasol get besides riding Kobe’s back to 2 rings? Garnett has a Defensive Player of the year, a MVP, and he’s nowhere near overrated, by the way, a healthy KG has always had Gasol on Lock, and that was proven today, Gasol is a ugly ass joke. this league need more players like KG, I promise thats my last response to you trolls, and if it wasnt so important, then why did ya’ll bring ya’ll asses on this website, you should have just went to sleep, un-worried about what we’re doing over here, but anyway, we proved today that when both of our starting fives play, we will kick ya’ll ass, and we are the better starting five. end of story.

    its gonna matter when we get home court advantage over you scrubs in the finals

  • itsthatbradguy

    lol yea, the Celtics played their best despite committing 15 turnovers, Shaq in foul trouble, Perk still working his way back in, Jermaine O’Neal and Delonte West out, Big Baby playing with a sore ham string, and their All Star PG not showing up until the 2nd half…you just keep on believing that.

    With all do respect when Laketards get together in mass when is it not a shit show?

  • DRJ

    a) Lakers won Game 7 in 2010 largely because they got lucky when Perk went down.
    b) Lakers won Game 6 because they got lucky when Perk went down AND the Celts decided to give that game away.
    c) And let’s not forget Game 3, which the refs handed to LA because the NBA didn’t want a 4-game series.
    Now LA might win in 2011, sure… but only if (1) their competition in the West all suffer key injuries, and (2) the Celtics get kidnapped by an alien spaceship and miss the playoffs.

  • DRJ

    @FearLA2011, Yea you right, we should have given that effort 7 months ago, which is why payback is a jackass, which is why we sent a message today that we will never let weak ass Gasol, or injury proned Bynum out-hustle us ever again, and yess this is one game, but you and I get the sense that the LAKERS just arent that good anymore, Kobe’s raggedy hands are catching up, looks like Bynum got hurt in the 4th quarter today, IDK, Gasol dont have enough HEART, and who is Ron Artest and Derek Fisher? and Where’s ya’ll BENCH that was sooo good for the first 8 games? They’ve been MIA, but we’re coming to get ya’ll this year, I personally wanna promise you that, I feel it deep down, and ya’ll do too, which is why you guys came here!

  • JordanKnowsAll

    Look, no matter how much you try to deny it, today’s game did matter. Accept your loss. Have some good sportsmanship and move on. The C’s are always ready to put up a team effort and throw down, anywhere, anytime, against any team. So when you guys stop blaming other team members and remember that one person doesn’t define the lakers and learn to play team ball, then come talk to the celtics. Get a life and stop trolling, you’re only adding fuel to the fire. So hit the highway to hell wearing gasoline boxers.

    3) A loss from the Boston Celtics, who have proven who’s superior today and who will be superior in June.

    Trade Gasol and Artest for a couple of lasagna and then we’ll talk.

  • Paul

    Always remember that the la F A K E R S only have 11 championships!!!!

  • Nick

    I’ve always been surprised when people think Ron Artest can guard Paul Pierce any more effectively than any other guy who attempts the near impossible task. Pierce has torched him their entire careers and as you all saw Hero Bryant had to take on that task along with shooting the ball every fucking time down the court. What a worthless peice of ball hog trash Kobe is. Honestly that dude just makes me sick to my core. I’m 21 and I’ve been a diehard NBA fan since I was old enough to watch T.V… aND i’VE SAID IT B4 AND i’LL SAY IT AGAIN. Paul Pierce is a more effecient and more complete player than Kobe Bryant. He’s a better rebounder, passer,defender, and team player. Nobody on earth can hit some of the wacked out fadeways and bomb 3’s that Kobe takes, but Pierce just abused Kobe and there so-called stopper Artest. This is the deepest and most complete Celtic team I have ever witnessed in all my life. If by some miracle ALL OF OUR BIGS meaning (K.G, PERK, BABY, SHAQ, J O’Neal) ARE HEALTHY than we are going to romp through the postseason with some of those guys playing only 9 or 10 mintues a night. The hame-bal really goes to Danny Ainge here. This roster is absolutely complete and the only thing that could be argued is that they miss T.A’s pessturing of Kobe Bean. But even then, I prefer Queez and Wafer for their offensive ability within our offense. What a job Danny did assembling this collection of pure hunger and talent. Green 18 is only 5 short months away

  • lakeb

    awwwww celtic fans get so happy over one win. thats cute. Phil has 11 rings, kobe has 5 rings. i highly doubt they care about losing one regular season game that means nothing. pierce, garnett, allen, rondo wont even ever catch up to gasol and his 2 rings, sorry celtic fansssss sowwwyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy :D

    whoopdy doo..i would like to congradulate u guys for winning a regular season game in January…Lakers dont start playing till April. Now all u lil bitches from the east coast wanna come out and play, once your team wins. Dont mean shit because i know that victory in game 7 is still stirring in the back of your mind. We scarred you guys for life and yes this win today, doesnt validate shit except that u guys played better then us on this day. try a 7 game series come June. We’ll be ready.
    and screw the mods on this site.. They’ll prolly delete this in a hour. because they cant the opposition.
    Lakers still the defending back 2 back champions. We dont have anything to proove till playoff time.

  • KY Celts fan

    And six of Phil’s rings were with the Bulls. How is that your teams accomplishment? If that’s the logic, I can brag about Shaq’s four rings.
    And five of the Lakers rings were in Minnesota. Those rings belong to your team as much as the Sonics championship belongs to OKC.

    The education system in Los Angeles is astounding. It’s no wonder why your state is gonna be the first in history to go bankrupt.

  • KY Celts fan

    Sore loser.

  • KGHaTTR

    Simple question for the trolls….
    What do u think of your team??
    That should shut them up.

  • Gil Meriken

    That’s funny, because the Lakers gave the Celtics a lesson in team basketball in the last game of the last season.

  • Mileke

    Okk so Im tired of people saying they wait till April to start playing, everybody just wanna say that, because thats bascically what we did last year, ya’ll are not us, waiting until April to play is only hurting ya’ll in the Long run, cause it dont look like San Antonio is bullshittin, You’re right maybe this game dont serve importance to you guys, but it serves a inch of importance to us though, just a little taste of revenge, trust we will be ready in June if ya’ll decide to play yet, also, ya’ll record against the elites are something like 0-5 right now, with all 5 being blowouts, smh, thats what this game proved, ya’ll are still trying to figure it out, we already have, hmmmm defending champions my ass!

  • thetitleisours

    We beat LA in the regular season that year with Bynum in the lineup. You guys had to injure Perk during the series to win. Much different sit

  • daemian

    let’s all calm down a little. As much as I loved watching the better, deeper, less rape-oriented team win, I need to remind everyone here about something: the Lakers will learn from this experience and come back stronger. Especially in the playoffs. If we are lucky enough to play them this summer, we will need to play even better than we did yesterday.
    God it’s so great sending all the celebrities home with the shit taste of another loss. Then again, they probably don’t even care who wins in the first place.
    Also, fuck every Lakers fan who can’t find anything better to do with themselves than spend time on a celtics site talking shit from the comfort of their mom’s spare room. The Lakers aren’t even the best team in their conference anymore. Ha!

  • daemian

    I love pissing off the Laker fans who have nothing better to do with themselves than talk misspelled shit on a celtics site fromt he comfort of their mother’s spare room. Your team is falling apart. Fuck you.
    On a more serious note, we need to play even better than that to win in the playoffs. Never let up.

  • lakeb

    aww did the celtics win a game? thats cute. lakers are BACK TO BACK champions……and the last team that won back to back titles was the LAKERS… WE PLAY IN JUNE. celtics fans are the most delusional in the world… lakers are the greatest franchise in nba history, everyone agrees :john hollinger, michael wilbon, tony kornheiser and every other sports writer or espn analyst. The only time the boston outshined the lakers was in the 1960s, some league it was back then LOL. I mean the SPURS have been just as good as a franchise as you guys since the 60’s LOL. get in your place. :)

  • KGHaTTR

    As I asked – how’s your team looking? No one replied……the wiff……tumbleweeds……….(echo echo)

  • Doop

    C’mon RealTalkBostonCelticsFans…just don’t reply to the trolls. You’re sinking down to their level. Focus on the C’s, nothing else. All you’re doing is making them more excited.

  • BostonIsLame

  • LOL@BOSTON

    I must say this is probably the lamest site I have ever seen. Thanks to the Boston troll that went to one of the Laker fan sites to gloat and mention this poor excuse for a site.

    Best…comment…evah! If Bynum was injured after the trade deadline Flakers would be SOL…Hey trolls have a little humility and take a loss like a man. Give props where due or at least go hide under some bridge….
