Celtics Morning Joe: Pierce thinks he was fouled in tie up at the end of regulation

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 19, 2013 at 5:30 AM


So was Pierce fouled? I'd say yes, just for the fact that the Bulls were down two points 98-96 with 12 seconds to go, and they had no timeouts. Two Bulls players went to Paul for a foul call. They happened to get the ball at the same time, but Paul was smashed by two guys. Noah was apart of that tie-up.  Normally the home team gets the call right?

“I think it could have went either way," Pierce said. "I thought I was fouled on that. I came out with a busted lip, but the ref didn’t see it that way. It was definitely a huge play of the game. We went out and we got the lead, all we had to do was just get the ball in, maybe get a better position where we could get fouled. Then we wouldn’t be talking about the loss tonight.”



ESPN blamed Rondo for the inbound pass



"Rondo made a terrible decision to inbound the ball to Pierce on the sideline. He was immediately trapped, forcing a jump ball situation with Joakim Noah. The Bulls won the tip, hustled the other way and Hinrich hit a gutsy 15-foot jumper after scooping up a loose ball with two seconds to play. Boston couldn't generate a quality look and settled for an off-balance, off-target heave from Garnett at the end of regulation."

 



Rondo can't catch a break. Let's not talk about Pierce shooting poorly. Let 's blame Rondo for scoring 30 points, and keep the Celtics a float. Rondo went to the line 9 times making 6 free throws. Rondo should have attempted about 14-16 total, but Rondo gets no love.

I studied, so to speak, comments from the media during the game, on twitter, and it was soo soo clear how much they hate Rondo. They had to admit that he was having a great game and carrying the team, and really, he was doing exactly what they constantly say he should do, but even so they found ways to diminish what he was doing. One said that Sully was the real star. Washburn blamed Rondo for poor decisions or something. Flannery said something like 'so, ok, rondo is playing well'. These guys can't get around their egos and the fact that Rondo despises them as much as many of us do.

Whats the old saying? Damned if you do, and damned if you don't Rondo. If you look up Rondo's picture in the dictionary he's there.

Damned either way. Doesn't mean he doesn't have a lot to prove in the next game. But that's where it stands right now. Got to prove you got a little Larry Bird in you for more than one game, Rondo.
