Olynyk can SUCK a big one IMO....Slacker couldn't get "motivated" enough playing for us 90% of the time.

Screw this loser.

Great game by Kelly, props to him.

Smart and Brown were great in that 4th quarter.  They laid down the entire foundation -- hustle plays, rebounds, blocks/steals, finishes -- for a wide-open look at the end.  Unfortunately, Kyrie failed to complete the only task he is ever given.

Bro, this is non-sense. How many clutch points did Kyrie score tonight, like 10? It's not even close without him. If you want to complain about someone, complain about Al who was non-existent all night long.

That's an easy argument to make in his favor. But again, consider that he was shooting sub 33% near the end, but Smart and Brown gave him continued opportunities on the offensive end.  They did their job time and time again, just as Kyrie was till that last, wide-open look.  Apparently 12 were required for the win, and he failed to produce.
Your petty ncaa allegiance is ruining the reading experience around here. 

College ball is a blight on the basketball community so perhaps you can do us all a favor and check that nonsense at the door?

We all know how you feel.  Move on.

For the past few years, I've watched an average of 5 games/year, including March.  I can't name 5 players on either UNC or Duke this season.  It's a screen name that has no bearing on my opinions at all.

So... but the weather has been good, huh?

I hope fatigue is part of the reason for the way we are playing lately.
More games than any other teams so less practice. ... again I just hope that is the reason .

A bit risky to place your assessment for the team upon an eight game stretch.

10 and 6 since the streak. That changes oneís perspective perhaps.

But this loss sucked. Olly went bananas, refs were bad and jobbed al, some Celtics played without passion or energy, and Kyrie misses a game winner. Not a common collection of events.

Well, that and injuries. People underestimate how much we miss (or need - since he hasnít really been fully healthy all year) Morris. His vet presence and scoring/shooting would certainly be a major complement to our young team, especially the bench.

The Celtics are 13-4 at home this year. In games that I've gone to, they're 1-3, so I haven't exactly seen the best of their playing. But last night was the first night in years that I've walked out of the Garden truly p---ed off.

I don't know what to say after that one. It looked like nobody showed up to play, with an exception for the guy who scored 33 and a bit of Marcus. How can you have a nine-point lead after one against a team that is missing its top 2 or 3 players, only to end up down double-digits in the fourth and finally losing? If they had only been mediocre, they would have won by 20. They looked bored out on the court during the game. I don't know where Horford was for most of the game. Ditto Aron Baynes. The refs were weak, but not much weaker than usual (a few petty fouls on Horford). But the refs didn't make us shoot 30-some odd percent.

Adding insult to injury: One of the benefits of being a STM is that I get to go out and play basketball on the court after the game. Whenever the Celtics win, they send a player out to take photos with us. After seeing the line-ups at the beginning of the game, I figured that there was no way that they would lose this one. Sigh. No player for us.

Seriously, deserve a refund after that piece of (insert word that wouldn't make it through the censors).

This is a just a bit biased.  Kyrie scored 33 points in the game, without him we are steamrolled.
I come to these game threads at the end of games just to see the mental gymnastics Tar Heels will pull in order to blame Irving

Not disappointed tonight

I am glad you were entertained haha...what a p----poor loss tonight.
to expand on this, Irving had 9 points and an assist on 4/5 shooting in the final 2.5 minutes. Over that 150 second stretch we cut the lead from 11 to 1.
