Recap: Watching Paul Pierce play against the Celtics is STRANGE


The Celtics lost 82-80 to the Brooklyn Nets tonight.

I watched nearly all of this game (No way I could bail on the Red Sox) in a daze. Maybe I’ve had my fill of preseason basketball or maybe my brain had difficulty processing Paul Pierce in a Brooklyn Nets uniform.

It was freakin’ weird.

The Truth didn’t shoot particularly well (8 points on 1-6 FG), but he channeled one of his vintage “give the game what it needs” performances and delivered 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Kevin Garnett did not play.

As for analysis of the game, no one really gives a shit so I’m not going to bother.

Check out these photos of the Truth and his old friends.

Don’t be ashamed, it’s okay to cry.

  • Still think the trade was a good long term move but this isn’t pleasant. Sucks.

    Great photos….gulp…


    Couldn’t watch. I’ll just dive-in head first when they both come back in January. Will be bringing a box of green tissue w/me to the game.

      Hahahaha, green tissue. Of course.

    Ummm, you know there are MANY other websites that offer that service right?
    I come to Red’s Army because it is a more personal website than those others that just give stats and regurgitate party lines.
    Great Job Guys!

      Ha, after writing that I went to to get a game recap, and they didn’t even have it. It still had news from the last Knicks game up on their Celtics page. Now that is lazy.

        HAHAHAHA, thanks for the follow up.

    Idk about you guys but I thought Jordan Crawford gave that game away. Nets went on a late 6-0 run after poor shot selections on his part. He did have some nice assists but the random shots need to stop. Maxwell summed it up best when he said, “That shot was brought to you by the letter “Y”.

    “is reds army tanking this season, cause it sure seems that way lately” one of the best quotes I have read on here in a while.

    Ya I wont ever get used to watching Paul in a different uniform. As far as the game, it shouldn’t have been as close as it was we played terrible.

  • Curt Hays

    Doesn’t it look like RR was about to cry?

    Have to disagree. For the most part, we bust our asses to bring you folks the best coverage possible. Even through the dog days of summer when there was basically nothing going on, I personally spent hours of my personal time to bring whatever content was available to this site. So no, we’re not tanking, never have been, never will be. I take pride in doing whatever I can to make this site as informative & entertaining as possible.
