This was a great game. The skeptics will say that the Celtics should have won by double digits. The realists understand that in the NBA everyone makes a run and the way you close out a game is more important than how you play the rest of the game. The Celtics were able to make some big plays to win tonight and that should make everyone excited.  Ray Allen was the star for the Celtics with 25 points including a clutch 3 in crunch time. Win or lose this year I am happy to have watched this guy for the last 3 years. I was also happy to see the treatment the Boston crowd gave Scalabrine and Thibodeau. Who says Boston fans are jerks?

 Pierce had a terrible night shooting but still made an impact. Garnett made the play of the game with a steal from Noah with under a minute remaining. What the hell was that guy thinking? Rondo had an average game with 10 points and 11 assists but we are still so lucky we got him for the price we did 2 years ago. If we had waited a year he would've been signed for at least 30 million more. Danny Ainge is awesome at life. 

This Bulls team is pretty decent and with Boozer back could be the 4th team to contend for the Eastern Conference title. Derrick Rose is the real deal and Luol Deng hit some huge shots for them down the stretch finishing with 20 points. Joakim Noah is really ugly but pretty damn good at the game of basketball. 26 and 12 is solid.

Marquis Daniels had a solid showing with 13 points and Big Baby continued to make his case for 6th man of the year with 15 points and 18 charges( or it seemed like it). Great win by the Celtics. I feel really good about this team.

  1. Nate still has to show up properly this season...

    i think that kg has been a little overlooked this past 2 games. people see a "not so good" shooting night by KG, but what they don't know is that at 4-5 from those shots where missed because he was given the ball with a defender in his face while the shot clock stands at 3 or 2 second to expire. i think that they should get him the ball a lot earlier in terms of shot clock and in terms of time into the game, u got to use him when he is fresh.

    agreed on both comments. Nate will come along and KG looks very solid so far this year.

    agree with joebrown42. Nate hasn't been shooting the ball well at all so far. i hope he gets it going because he is rondo's backup (until Delonte gets to play). and he needs to start setting up better plays instead of jacking up ill-advised shots.
    also, KG is looking better and better as the games go by! Dunked on Bogut the other night, then he had to dunks tonight. he is looking great early this season. hope he continues to play well. Ray was on point tonight. and so was Rondo (i think he was looking to outplay Rose)lol
    last thing, the Bulls played very well tonight. They will be at least the 5seed in the east this year. and also Boozer isnt back, so when they get 100% they will be good.

    My take:

    Breen has been dying his whole life to yell "Deng...Bang!"

    Breen's been dying to tie in the 2009 Playoffs between Chicago and Boston

    Taj Gibson is closer to looking like a tranny than Chris Bosh

    Impressed with Marquis and Jermaine

    Kyle Korver takes being a sieve to a whole new level

    Chicago's free agent signings this summer sucked

  8. tb727 says:

    And Karl I'm surprised you didn't mention Scalabrine's block on Pierce, the highlight of his career lol

  9. tb727 says:

    And I loved the Bulls' bench equipped with WTHHT stars Griffin and Pinckney.

  10. Karl says:

    Ya that Scal block was great. He's a lock down defender.

  11. MLB says:

    Is Scal's hair getting redder as he gets older?

  12. tb727 says:

    I forgot Roy Rogers was also involved in the game. That's 3 WTHHT players involved in one 2010 NBA game. Amazing...
