Recap: Celtics fall again 93-83 to Memphis

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 3, 2013 at 12:55 AM

Boston  showed it wouldn't go away without a fight. The Celtics chipped away and back-to-back 3-pointers from Jason Terry got their deficit to five (83-78) with 4:52 to play. With the lead at 7, Garnett missed two free throws with under three minutes to go, and that was all she wrote on the Celtics comeback.


Avery Bradley had 4 points (2-6 FG) and 1 steal in 20 minutes in his season debut. Rondo found Bradley on one of those cut plays that Bradley executes so well. KG was awful on the offensive end tonight (t5-of-14 from the field for 12 points), and Rondo was junk tonight. I'm sure Rondo is hurting pretty bad right now. But if you go out there, and play you need to execute.


Pierce scored a team-high 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting for the Celtics, while Rajon Rondo battled through a hip bruise to chip in 11 points and 10 assists.


Bradley's return allowed Rivers, for the first time this season, to run with a full second-unit lineup, which featured Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger. The Celtics got 32 points from the bench. Terry was the star off the bench in the scoring department. But Sully hustled all night.


The Celtics lost their 4th in a row. They improve to 14-17. This team sucks bottom line. What more can I say. They have no sense of urgency. They expect to show up, and win by just showing up, and it's not that simple.

It's beyond even trying to analyze it. But I think Danny doubled down on Jeff Green as if to somehow prove himself right, Doc came into the season with no ideas whatsoever, and Rondo? He had the chance of a lifetime, and he blew it. Now what? I think we all suspect trades will be made, and big names could be on the move. But I'd still like to see this team pull together.

Doc ruined the season by not taking this thing serious. This entire team thought by showing up it would just gel, and it's hard work. Green I understand had the heart surgery, but he played like this before the surgery. He was timid and scared before, and he's the same now.

Rondo is hurt he is at 50% probably. A very only played 20 mins but the d was much better tonight. It was the offense not the defense that lost this game.

I really agree, C'slife. Doc has acted like it's a joke, and the team acted like they just had to show up, including Rondo

Yeah, one bright spot was that Rondo showed up and played even though hurt.
