I feel for the Nets fans. Even during our 18 game losing streak a few years back, I expected every game to be a win. I just can't imagine expecting a loss going into every game. They are so down on their players - some even wishing a season ending injury on one. Even though the Celtics ended up with a huge free throw advantage, mainly because they were aggressive and the Nets weren't, I thought the refs were terrible in this game. Enjoy this edition of Comments from the Other Side...
First time I get to see the nets live I’m def going to get into a fight with Celtic fan their crazy
Nets will lose, but will put up a good fight
Crazy prediction: Nets win this game (no I'm not drunk)
Yes I know weird, I usually like Celtic vs Nets games even though Nets lose, just something about them
I only like them when many Celtics are injured
No gameday thread update?
Game will be a loss anyway lol, no need
This team makes me want to go on a punching spree inside of a children's hospital.
LMAO Avery with a timeout 20 seconds in Avery chewing out Brook.
Travis Outlaw not giving shit about what Brook Lopez said and scratching his head the whole time probably thinking about eating Fried Chicken after the game..
Brook probably thinks he is doubled because he is good
Hes doubled because its in the scouting report that he will choke it up 6 times out of 10
Wow its already over
Good night this will be 20 to nothing
Paul pierce just dunked on favors wow everyone goes right to the nets..so soft
Why is Travis Outlaw permitted in the NBA?
Our 2nd unit is so much better, we dont need Lopez we aint winning games anyway
Damn Boston is good
Big Baby should not be allowed to play with Perkins Might open up a black hole
Petro your garbage
What was that PetROFL?
This is like a varsity vs JV game
Celtics are really good but nets are looking like last year they should alteast compete.
Lopez is a turn over machine the guy suck so bad
Damn Boston is so good I know, obvious. But you dont really see it when they’re playing good teams. it’s when they play against a squad like us that you realize how stacked they are.
Rondo out rebounded Lopez yikes
I don't think Brook belongs in the NBA. Rajon Rondo outrebounded him.
I miss the days when we could at least make it until halftime before getting blown out of the building
We're just a really bad team.
I can't believe we finished that quarter only down five.
Nets close the quarter on 12-2 run LETS GO NETS!! Only down 27-22 we got this!
On the bright side If they outscore us by 5 in each quarter, it’s only a 20 point loss!
How did some of these guys make their college team?
That crap we call offense sucks. That crap we call defense sucks.
Where going to win this one
Where? We are at Boston.
I think wafer would be a good fit on the nets
he's a good fit on teams with stars
On this team he’d be asked to do way more than he’s capable of.
I still ask myself why the hell does Perkins maintain that ''I'm constipated'' look when playing ball..
Harangody is destroying Lopez and his shot is freakin weird
Lopez you trying to choke perk?
Hahaha Lopez actually held his throat, perkisn would kill him
Since when did perk have emotions
I hate Perkins I hate KG So if Lopez wants to choke em…I'm all for it
Perkins His face looks like he’s always on the verge of getting into a fight.
I hope not many still doubt Lopez's offensive skills He just needs more consistency and more, uh, you know “center”-type skills.
Tied at the half. Plenty of time to lose
I want us to beat Boston real bad. If there's one team I don't like, it's the Celtics.
I think most of the fans know Boston has another gear And we don’t. This is as good as we’re gonna play.
Celtics are simply joking around with us.
The Celtics problems can be summed up by Luke Harangody being their second leading scorer at halftime
Boston looks bored They came out destroying us and then just kind of…eased up. They have four guys headed to LA this weekend, I’m sure this game is the last thing on their mind. Hopefully they stay asleep long enough for us to steal this.
Celtics will def make a huge run they’re just too stacked
The Nets are gonna end up winning this game.They can't beat the Knicks without Amar'e but they'll win this one.
Something is fishy I feel like we’re on punked
Boston not even calling timeouts Doc’s like “we got this…”
Not even NETS fans believe they can win SMH
Maybe its cause I just smoked but quinton ross is looking good on D.
Enjoy this lead while you can Nets fans It won’t be here for long : (
NICE ELBOW HUMP!! Finally, somebody putting garnett in his place. he’s so annoying.
Notice how Garnett doesn't go too far too mess with Hump because he's his own size.
Shut up Garnett Humphries would whoop your ***!!
I hate how awkward Lopez looks sometimes He’s just so bumbly and fumbly. There’s no other way to describe it.
Wow the Boston announcers don't even TRY to be somewhat neutral
Lawrence Frank is the most visible assistant coach ever
Outlol what are you doing on the floor
Now nobody will take outlaw
YESSSSSSS OUTLAW IS HURT!!!!!!
He hit his head, thats not even funny dude
So apparently Celtics players are just allowed to tackle Nets in open court
Anyone wishing for any Nets players to be injured deserved to be banned.
OUCH banged his head on the court because someone pushed him=no call
Career ending injury?? Fingers crossed
What kind of person are you?
Why are we getting so many offensive boards? And why cant we do anything with those boards?
This is where talent overtakes us Celtics have players who can finish shots and move the ball around. We just have nobody to go to.
Oh great The only reason weve been in this game is cause they havent made any 3s… lets not get this going
Yea they show that stat and next possession Allen hits a three in sashas face…great
One basket for Celtics gets the fans so crazy i’m jealous*
Way to go refs Missing it as always
Boston players would be the ones calling foul in pick up ball every shot
Game over guys Back to reality, we stink!
Lopez is back to soft pillow mode Games over. Lopez is afraid to go within 10 feet of the rim.
We have a bunch of girls on this team who wont take it to the basket.
Lopez is one of the least clutch players i’ve ever watched. No surprise here.
He was real clutch his rookie year.. Thats what having a vince carter does for you. That’s why we need melo.
Rondo has more rebounds than Lopez
Thats because he is in beast mode every game.
Boston's defense is so good and Lopez is so soft
I hate Vujacic
Lol someone shouting ***** assed ****** real loud near a mic
Who they call that??? Hahaaa
I got no clue. Them Celtics be crazy.
14-0 run by Boston their d is so insane.
We use to push them around......now the role is reversed. Can't believe how many times they punked our bigs and we didn't push back. Davis practically leveled Hump and stood over him, and Hump just got up and walked away. No fight from our big men
Sorry but the reffing was atrocious and a joke tonight... But I expected it would be.
Nets gave up
No, the Celtics just started playing lock down D and we dont have a good offense as it is. Celtics were in position to win this game all along, depending on when they woke up. We gave up in the first 3 minutes, but Avery had enough clout to revive us.
Avery should be relieved of his offensive playcalling duties. He is clearly not capable of designing plays that allow his players to get open. I think most fans will agree it is painful to watch the Nets try to run these high school plays that just don’t work.
Lay off Avery This would have been a blowout from the first 3 minutes if he hadnt intervened
That FT differential is pretty big
3 good quarters by the Nets tonight... In the 4th, they showed there true colors. It’s tough for a team filled with role players to beat the Celtics, refs…etc.
Who cares there’s a party in the Melo thread. Everyone is invited.
Wow Cavs beat Lakers
Lakers suck lol
Thank god for Allstar break. No more torture for a week.
We need a player that can create one on one like Pierce did when the Celtics needed a score. Bottomline.
Maybe we can trade Lopez for Perkins. We need some toughness like that instead of the pillow soft center we have. No other center in the league gets the ball in the post and dribbles away from the basket. NOT ONE
I also would have liked Hump or Lopez or one of the bigs to shove the hell out of Garnett or Perkins or Davis. They got away with one too many dirty plays for my liking.
Brook tried to get a little physical with Perk that one time…and then probably realized he was in over his head.
Can't start or finish,but in between we are awesome.
