It just shows how good they are that after every loss theres gonna be a 7 page long thread on this board, and a bunch of blockheads like the people on the first few pages saying they're not that good or have no chance because they lose a game like this or against CHA. DAL/PHX/SA/DET have a lot more losses like this(coasting/tired game) than the Celtics do so far.

Wait til they go on their west coast trip huh? How about 4/4 on the last one, playing 4 days in 5 nights against UTA/red hot LAL in the backend?

The same people saying they had no chance and would suck before the year are the same that will come in these threads and continue their ignorance towards what is a great team that isnt even close to their peak.

They still havent even figured out how to fully utilize KG and RA especially in their offence yet, when that happens they're gonna almost be completely unstoppable.


almost completely unstoppable? :crazy:

Its not that we are tired. Its more that we are resting people with minor injuries because we have such a big division lead. Our two losses came in games where we didnt play Ray Allen, Glen Davis and Rajon Rondo. On top of that we have cut KGs minutes recently. No point in burning guys out during the regular season. When we can coast and still be able to win 60 games.

Didn't say a damn thing though when Pierce was credited with a 3 when his toe was touching the line at the end of the game.

Going 30-17 to finish off the year shouldnt be that hard even if we give some of our guys rest.

Not really pleasant though. There's no way the Raps will catch up to the Celtics this season, but we're in fierce competition with Washington.

So many "they aren't as good as people thought" comments... WHY?
- They were on a back to back...
- Rando is missing
- washington isn't as bad as you think

Now all of you guys are talkin 'about the west coast trips. I wonder what you guys will be saying when they win some of the games against dallas, san antonio, and phoenix.
