I'm blaming the refs for this loss. The game was competitive in the first three quarters, but you could see the Celtics losing steam as they continually failed to get the calls that the Bulls were getting on the other end.

JET's expression at the end of the game: "[dang], why did I get that tattoo?"

Hate to say it, but we're in worse shape than the Lakers.  At least they have a legitimate excuse with key players being injured and all.

I will continue to wait till All-Star break to truly judge the team. Still 58 games left.

58 games left?  then 48, 38, 28.........

Everyone who is not Rondo, KG, Pierce, or Terry needs to be on the trading block.
terry? sorry not so much, his defense is pretty poor so if he isn't hitting his shots he hurts us
u beat me to it he's worthless when his jumper is off he let so many people blow past him it was unbelievable

yeah, keepers at this point are only Rondo and KG based on their play and PP for his service to the team in his career.  other than that, everyone's on the block for the right pieces.

refs were bad -- for both teams, not just the C's.  this loss is on the C's.  players didn't perform.  very clear cut.

Well Doc has his work cut out for him.  The team isn't gelling like everyone expected and we don't seem to be giving max. effort.  Something needs to change obviously.  We will be home for the playoffs if this level of play continues.

After a loss like this, all options should be on the table to make the team better.  Trades, benching, alternate coaching approaches...

Just really poor effort and execution.

KG was the train for this team the past few season, but he has lost his steam.  We need someone who will battle, especially in the paint for rebounds, take charges, block shots basically earning tommy points left and right. We need back guys with similar makeup to Leon Powe, Popeye Jones that will drive the team to play more intense. When you bring in guys like Green , the team suddenly turns softer and inconsistent. I'm actually upset but also neutral the way things are going bc eventually danny has to do something. He has to understand, small ball is not the new nba

the good news: Rondo played like a MVP tonight.
the bad news: This team stinks.

If this loss doesn't prompt a player's only meeting, I don't know what would.

Jermaine Oneal tried to call one of those last year and he got ridiculed and then traded

I hope Courtney Lee calls one then. ;)

as usual...team still doesn't address issues from game to game. defense is getting worse and they are lost at sea. Very disappointing. Very frustrating.

Bottom line is this team stinks. There is no more excuses. they stink
