    And the Celts don't miss Rondo in the playoffs?

     



    counting today the Celtics are 13 and 18 since the 7 game win streak when Rondo first went down

    KG had a lot of rest lately but he gave us nothing today.  He has to give us more POINTS.

    We cannot win with KG scoring 8 points.  Green also totally lost his aggressiveness in the second half and we have to get Bass more than just 2 shots (especially if we only go 8 deep).

    That 4th quarter was atrocious!

    It's good to get contributions from Bradley and Green but our leaders MUST lead - PP did but where was KG.

    I am embarassed for this team with that second half performance... trust me the knicks are not that good defensively and yet they made the Cs look like a D league team.... Garnett with all his rest looked ok but he has too pull his weight offensively and he did not... its pretty clear he   is nowhere near what we need him to be.... and oh btw, Terry is awful...

    On the bright side, we played terrible down the stretch and yet still could have won this game...

    but I don't like the way we lost...weak....

    Yes, will miss Rondo here down the stretch..

    Ouch, what an ugly end :-(

    Our bench did nothing for us, nada. If you switch the veterans Kidd and Terry we win this game easily...

     



    The Celts had 20 turnovers and only 8 pts in the 4th qtr. And this is all Terry's fault?

     

     



    With all of that we lost by 7. The turnovers- he may have had one because he never got involved. but he should've been able to score More than 7. What a fraud!

    What I mean is that we did'nt get beat...we beat ourselves...hopefully that gives us hope for game two...I still think KG played heavy minutes...I nknow he is rested..but still this could go seven if we win game two...if not, well, ....

    I still hold out hope that Terry will get it together. I don't think Doc has lost confidence in him. KG needs to play the low post a lot more often. When KG gets the ball in the low post he is double teamed which should open it up for everyone else. Obviously KG getting 8 points isn't going to work. AB played wildly inconsistent - many great plays and many lazy passes. I think AB learns  a lot from this game.

    Of course not. If KG and Lee would have stepped up we would have won the game. But Kidd and Terry won a title in 2011 together. With Kidd being much older, it just surprised me that Kidd stepped up on both sides of the floor (on offense in the first half and on defense and rebounding in the second half) and Terry was non existant. :-(

    Re: 04/20/13 Celtics vs Knicks

    Fierce, it's not too much to ask from KG to get more than 8 points as a post scorer.  The Celtics cannot rely on post points from Bass ONLY.  Right now, we're not getting anything in the post.  It's a whole easier to defend perimeter players if you know there is no post threat.

    That is what made last season's post-season run so special - KG's newfound post play at the center spot.

    KG is not even a threat now.  Regardless of his age, the Celtics expect much more than just 8 points from him, especially on fresh legs.

    Nah!  The guy is an expensive selfish, no-defense, no-offense ball hog.  Just dump him.

    Totally agree with you, Pete. The problem is KG has never been a great playoff performer. Before KG became a Celtic, he only got past the 1st round once!

     


    Let it go Fierce. Basketballs a team game. Garnett never really had anyone around him in Minn. he won here his first year because he had help. Besides Pierce, Look who he has around him now!

    When the defense gets tough in the 4th, we have no one who can step up. It's been that way for 4 years now. Terry is a waste, as he has been all season. KMart would have looked good in green, if Doc would have played him, that is!!

    What doomed the Celts in 2010 and 2012?

    Answer: The inability to score in the 4th qtr.




    No,

    Terrible passing and the inability of the refs to foul out Melo. Star calls are back big time.

    True,

     

    The rust was obvious.
