08:45 AM ET 11.03 | Gerald Wallace has officially called out the Celtics more times than they've played games. After twice putting his teammates on blast during the preseason, it took all of two regular-season games for Wallace to rip them again. "We got selfish," he said after the Celtics blew a 22-point lead in a 105-98 loss to the Bucks. "We got selfish as a team. Instead of worrying about winning the ballgame, we were more worried about our stats, getting points. It showed. We went from a team that was together and moving and playing together in the first half to a team that was five individuals out on the court, everybody playing for themselves, and it showed on the defensive end."

I'm curious to know who he's referring to. Blowing a 22 point lead doesn't just happen.

The Celtics will be better than expected. Gerald Wallace has played well and this centrer Faverani seems like a young up and coming player. Jeff Green is also the lead dog with Rondo out. When Rondo returns, I think Mick could be right (not that he knows anything about sports). They could be a sleeper for the 8 seed. Or around 9-10 in the East.

I doubt the Celtics make the playoffs.

The Sixers have really been a surprise and I wonder if they can maintain their winning ways.

I'm a Celt fan but I don't see us winning more than 30 games. There is not 1 team in the league that I can say for certainty, like in years past, "We should beat them." My hope is the young players mature and Wallace doesn't end up fighting a teammate.

I didn't think they'd when their third game until around Christmas, or so.

Man.......talk about exceeding expectations!

I doubt. They're really playing over their heads.

But.....they have shown that they're not to be taken lightly!
