We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from LA.
This was an amazing game and a gutty effort from the Clippers in the last game before the All-Star break. Still, you can’t help but feel as though they let this one get away. They were up six before one minute of overtime had even passed, yet missed free throws down-the-stretch came back to haunt them in a big way.
However, it’s an effort the Clippers should still be fairly proud of. Boston has been playing incredibly well of late and LAC remains incredibly shorthanded. What would’ve been a landmark victory turned out to be an unfortunate loss. With consecutive overtime games at the end of a lengthy east coast road swing, the All-Star break is coming at a great time for the Clips.
Well, well, well… what do we have here? A blogger for the mighty Clippers is proud of his team’s loss to the Celtics.
Sure, I could poke fun at the tone of that recap, but I’m thrilled to see others around the league recognizing the Celtics as one of the top teams. It wasn’t that long ago (two years to be exact) that a loss to the Celtics was viewed as an embarrassment.
We’re movin’ on up!
