    Posted by jdm894g[/QUOTE]

    I know.  and then he criticized him for getting an offensive rebound and putting it back in.  Like that's a bad thing.  

    The guy has lost all perspective.

    [QUOTE]Boast all you want about Rondo's triple double...but if we lose this game its because of his inability to shoot. A point gaurd needs to be able to make layups, let alone wide open jump shots. Trade him now! Before he blows this game in OT!

    Please let us all know what clutch baskets are.  Most people consider that performing well when the game is on the line. 

    what do you think it means?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Knicks : In case you didn't see it, I said Rondo had a spectacular game. Just don't say that his 5 points in OT were clutch baskets. If Pierce missed that last 3-pointer in regulation, Rondo would have had 0 points in the 4th qtr. and 6 straight missed FGs. Ugh!
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]


    if if IF. its not his points. some of us look at Rondos performance as a WHOLE. his PERFORMANCE in OT was clutch. 5 pts, 2 assists, 5 rebounds in 5 minutes. why cant you give the guy respect for bouncing back after a horrible 4th qtr?

    [QUOTE]Here is a problamatic fact. Our old big 3 have all played 40+ minutes. Nobody on knicks has played into the mid 30s. If we have to wear down Allen, Pierce and Garnett like that to win against a mid level team, good luck keeping these guys productive at playoff time.

    What a game it was. Heavy weights slugging it out toe to toe.

    Great to see the Celts-Knicks rivalry ramping back up again to actually mean something.

    The Big 3 all played 41-48 minutes.

    Expect a tired letdown when they go on the road.

    OUCH!!!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Knicks : Rondo was spectacular today. Just don't say easy baskets are clutch baskets. If you want a clutch basket then it was Pierce's 3-pointer that sent the game into OT.  Seriously, Rondo had a spectacular game, I'm not complaining. Just don't say uncontested shots are clutch shots because it's not accurate.
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]

    so normally clutch baskets are 5 minutes or less left in the game, unless its Rondo, then it has to be a highly contested, in your face, no time left buzzer beater right?

    whats not clutch about Rondo shedding a box out from lin, grabbing the rebound and putting it back up?

    Look it up in the dictionary.  Clutch just means to be successful when the game is on the line.  There is not a degree of difficulty involved in the word clutch.  I was not talking just about his baskets, I was talking about how well he played in the clutch.  I guess you just never really understood what the word meant.

    Lin turned his head and Rondo took advantage of it so he gets no credit according to Fierce.Isn`t part of basketball being aggressive and grabbing opportunities when they present themselves.Some of these guys are truly pathetic.Maybe they`ll be so dissappointed when Rondo isn`t traded that they`ll go into mourning and quit dominating the board with their negativity.

    Im sticking to my guns...BLOW IT UP!!!!!!!  If they make a run, so be it!!!  The test will be the next two weeks.  I dont think we are a big man away.  We are a couple of players away.  We are a step below Miami and Chicago and just a tick below Indiana and Philly.

    Fierce just can't enjoy the moment.  e's a Rondo hater and when he has to admit Rondo played well, it kills him.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Knicks : That's not clutch, that's just Rondo being more athletic than Lin. Come on, Jamez, Rondo had a spectacular game. Celts win, I'm happy, you're happy, let's leave it at that. No need to proclaim Rondo as the next Jerry West.
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]


    Problem is, Fierce, if we lose and Rondo didn't have a great game, you initiate 6 threads saying the same thing about Rondo doesn't play well int he 4th, Rondo should be traded, we'll never win with him as a point guard, he's not a top 5 point guard, etc, etc, etc.   So, why can't we enjoy it when he's doing well? 

    By the way, isn't this his 4th or 5th triple double when the whole league only has 13 or 14 triple doubles this year??????

    it kills him bc he knows that the more Rondo plays like this, the less likely it is that he will be traded.

    if danny pulled the trigger now he would be the worst gm in 30 years. Rondo is showing his worth to the team.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Knicks : If you say he played well in the clutch then I agree.  The problem is I was not talking to you when Jamez said the 5 pts of Rondo in OT were clutch. Those 5 points were not clutch because both shots were uncontested and the one point came from 1 out of 2 from the FT line.
    Posted by Fiercest34[/QUOTE]


    So if you get a rebound or a steal or make a great pass at the most critical time in the game (last 2 mins or OT) or beat your man because he cheated and you were smart enough to cut - its not clutch?

    What are you smoking, man???

    Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Knicks

    I was on Rondo for his fourth  quarter.  Seven missed lay ups in one period in a close game no matter what precedes it is unforgivable.  Still I am thrilled to see us get a win against a team I hate.

    Rondo is a game breaking, one of kind player  and that is all you can say after a win like this.  Next game in the fourth quarter I hope he makes every lay up to shut me up.
