That was fun.  Thrilled to get the hard fought win.  They can't all be masterpieces.

Wow, what a game.  Not the prettiest but probably the most intense.  Crazy that a 117-115 game feels like a defensive struggle, but for much of the game it was.  Playoff intensity game there.

  I think our defense was actually better than average tonight.

  By the way, was something wrong with Wilcox? I thought he played pretty well but didn't play much in the 2nd half.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.

Well, elite defense is also better than average defense too, so...
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

When was the last time we hit a game winner? Every time we have a chance to win the game i know we will either lose or go to overtime. It happens every time. That game drove me nuts.

I cant complain about this win.

Great stuff to shoot almost 10% less than the opponent and still get the W.

Hard work prevailed tonight.

Nothing wrong with Wilcox, something wrong with Doc.

The Celtics could have used Barbosa's energy and offense tonight, while giving Rondo some needed rest. He must still be getting over his bug.

We should have destroyed them , they had I think 28 turnovers !!! possible 56 point swing.

Same ol story , when KG goes out, first thing the other team does is drive to the bucket. Teams score at will inside the paint against us without KG in the game.

I saw several points in the game I would have inserted Barbosa for his energy to get easier buckets. 

Pierce played like Kobe and keep the Celtics in the game.
Green did good for guy coming off surgery.

Game was way harder than it should have been .

With  14point lead , leave KG in thegame and finish the job . SO instead he winds up playing huge minutes anyway.

Win , but a poor coached game by Doc

I think it's pretty pathetic to take two overtimes to beat a team that committed nearly 30 turnovers.

Wilcox only plays when KG isn't on the floor lately, Doc used KG for almost the entire fourth quarter. Went with Green/Bass for the little break KG got, probably didn't like Wilcox's D on Wright over Greens I guess?

I didn't like how the C's froze up their offense when they went:

A) Zone
B) having Fisher guard Pierce

I completely get taking advantage of mis-matches but you can't let it stagnate all ball movement and other options.
