So I have miscounted the actual game number. Game 51 is tonight against the Atlanta Hawks. The Celtics are 22-28 and are riding a five game losing streak and are 2-8 since reaching .500 ten games ago.

The Hawks took the only meeting to date with a 93-88 victory on December 23rd. Waltah led the Celtics in scoring with 16. Paul Pierce had 15 points and shot 4-16, including 0-7 from three. He also had 6 turnovers. Mike James had 13 and five boards. Jiri Welsch had ten and four assists. The Hawks had 48 rebounds to the Celtics' 25 and they shot 47% to the Celtics 39%. Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 25 points, Dion Glover (DION GLOVER?) had 18 on 6-8 shooting as well as 7 boards. Stephen Jackson had 16 and 7. Jason Terry had 13 points to go with 6 boards and 7 assists as well as 3 steals. The Celtics were up by as many as 14 before losing this game and were up 12 at the half. The Hawks had 36 points in the paint to the Celtics' 22.

These Hawks are awful and there is absolutely no excuse for the Celtics to lose this game. Not at all.

hmmm... Do you thinks Hawks are saying: "These Celtics are awful and there is absolutely no excuse for us to lose this game. Not at all. "

Hawks are not that awful! They have some nice talent on their team, but agoo you are right, if we lose this game...no excuse!

The Hawks on a 16 to 0 run? This is pathetic. No one can dribble (how many turnovers do Banks, Jiri, and Pierce have?), take your pick on who has the worst turnover of the night.

Paul stealing the ball and giving it to the Hawks at the begining of the game.
Jiri getting stripped at half court.
Banks getting stripped TWICE in a ROW at half court.

No defense what-so-ever.

I won't even be watching the second half.

You won't be watching

Sadly, neither will I. FANS, STOP GOING TO GAMES...STOP BUYING TICKETS....SUPPORT THE CELTICS, BUT DO NOT PUT ONE CENT INTO THEIR COFFERS UNTIL THEY RETURN TO BLACK SHOES AT HOME AND LOWER TICKET PRICES!

Atleast Pierce stole the Ball to Begin With... For Jiri: A Double Negative = a Posotive.:sigh:

Tommy should just shut up and go have a nice candlelit dinner with Waltah....

Here's a crazy thought - taking the ball right at Theo Ratliff is not a good idea.

Here are some other crazy thoughts. Playing McCarty 35 minutes at PF and only getting 3 rebounds from him is not a good idea. Playing Michael Stewart at all is not a good idea. Getting a total of 2 assists from both your point guards is not enough.
