Boston Celtics fans booed their team during the fourth quarter at TD Garden. Twitter was worse.
Green Teamers lost it on social media as the Celtics fell to the Bulls, 111-97, on Tuesday night.
Jimmy Butler, Robin Lopez and Rajon Rondo dominated the Celtics.
Lopez, in particuar, played a surpisingly phyiscal brand of basketball, and finished the game with eight rebounds. He also managed to shoot 8 of 11 from the field for 18 points. Meanwhile, Al Horford finished with seven points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
The Bulls' sharp-shooting performance and the Celtics' lackluster defensive performance lit Celtics twitter ablaze.

I don't think I've ever been more frustrated with this team.

Members of Boston media weren't pleased either.
It's time for the Celtics to blow it up and start over. I only want Jaylen Brown and the player they draft with the Nets pick back. @CSNNE— Gary Tanguay (@Gary_Tanguay) April 19, 2017

The #Celtics fans at the Garden had better start cheering Jimmy Butler to wake up Jae Crowder.— Adam Kaufman (@AdamMKaufman) April 19, 2017
Rondo and Wade out there getting along and the Celtics now head to Chicago and may not be back... pic.twitter.com/OpouUHPqh9— Rich Keefe (@Keefe21) April 19, 2017
