For the first time in the KG era the Celtics are about to be kicked out of the first round, and they're about to lose the series 4-0 for the first time. Bradley spoke about the teams vibe after the game.
"It was quiet in the locker room yesterday," said Bradley. "Everybody was real mad yesterday. Nobody was saying anything. Usually [coach] Doc [Rivers] talks and then [Kevin Garnett] and those guys talk to keep us all level, let us know that we’ve got to continue playing hard. But yesterday after the game, everybody was quiet and pretty mad."
The Celtics are probably mad as a collective group, some more then others I'm sure. I know many of us would have loved to be the room when KG, Pierce, and Rondo were talking privately. The team is stunned, and some fans are. I've been stunned every since Rondo went down, but more numb now on this season.
"The frustration with us is knowing the type of game that we had with
everything that we've missed -- the layups, the open shots, the stuff
that we can control," said Jeff Green. "We normally make those layups
and those open shots and I think it was more frustrated with ourselves
as far as how the game was played out and how we determined how the game
But the Celtics were also peeved at watching the Knicks celebrate highlight plays while putting the game out of reach.
"That’s what made us so mad, so angry," said Bradley. "We’ve just got to go out there and play the right way. We’ve got to not let that happen again. After the game, somebody said it right after we got in the locker room, said, 'Oh they’re showboating and they’re dunking,' and everybody kind of looked like, ‘Oh, you’re right.’ But all we can do is go out there and play the right way and play hard and don’t give them a chance to showboat at all."
