Celtics Title Town

Recap: Celts below .500, and the sky is falling

Posted by shawn cassidy on January 23, 2013 at 12:25 AM

Worried? Mad, and frustrated? Confused of the direction of this team? My bottom line from this game? Rondo is screwed as the leader of this team. Paul Pierce has lost it, and it's showing up more, and more. It's basically Rondo, and KG carrying this team, and that's a tall order for KG at the age of 36. Rondo was lit up with Bradley by Irving, as you know he went off for 40 points, and the Celtics lost control down the stretch. 

This was a back, and forth game, and the first half was an offensive free for all. In the second half both teams put on the defensive clamps. The Celtics fell apart in the final two minutes of the game, and the Cavs broke down the defense in every way imaginable. 

Rajon Rondo led the Celtics with 17 points, 13 rebounds and 8 assists, while Paul Pierce (12 points on a crap fest shooting night of  3-of-15 seven rebounds), Kevin Garnett (16 points, five rebounds, five blocks) and Jared Sullinger (12 points and 10 rebounds) all scored in double figures for Boston.I'll have more thoughts about this game in the morning, and late tonight.

Rondo was good, buy Kyrie was just that much better. Rondo did what he could, but Pierce couldn't put the ball in. Green we could have used you. This just sucks.

Pierce and Terry have been absolute trash. I would be happy if Pierce played like Terry and was non-existent most of the time, but unfortunately Pierce turns the ball over, plays shit defense, takes so many poor shots, and overall killing this team on offense.

Hate to say it, but Pierce is absolute trash this season.

supposedly Bradley twitted a jab at Rondo re. Irving,and then deleted it. I wonder. Did he fare any better with Irving?
