    This one is too close to call. The Celtics have gotten hot at the right time and Orlando just steamrolled two teams and are well rested. I think this series will go to 7, but I'm not going to try to call a winner.

    I'm going out on the limb ... the homer limb

    Celtics in 5 as Garnett brings his game up 1 more notch.

    they are leading after the 1st but feels like they arent somehow. 4 of 20 for the magic shooting...they shouldve been up more a lot.

    After letting them back in it, some great clutch shooting at the line for Piece and Allen.

    Like I said before, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are luxuries for this team. The Celts can win without them, but when they're on, the Celtics are INCREDIBLY hard to beat. What an exciting Game 1.

    I would have bet Vegas big time that the Celts would have taken game 1 (coulda, woulda, shoulda). Orlando hadn't played since the last Bush administration. They hadn't been tested in either of their series. Pierce was relatively rested because of his foul trouble in Cleveland. Then you had everyone, particularly the Orlando press giving them a free pass to the finals.
    Orlando will of course win game two.........tho, those Celtics were not really clicking today either.

    That was some nice news to wake up to this morning. 92-88 flashed up on the idiot box and I swear I instantly had morning wood.

    Now to beat the Magic and rekindle our championship battles with the Lakers. Yes God.. make it happen :D

    The Celtics are playing phenominal basketball at the right time of the year....The only thing that worries me is they still go through long periods of time without scoring......Yesterday it was 5 1/2 min in the 4th Quarter that almost let Orlando come back.....They get a lead and go into a lull thinking they can play 1 on 1 or just keep knocking down jump shots.....If you aren't scoring take it to the rack, get fouled and go to the line......We can't keep going through these huge stretches in the big parts of the game without scoring......Orlando has 1 inside player and 4 outside players......We should be able to post up anyone and have them take it to the hole......Let's keep focused guys and we can win another championship.....I like that Doc said this exact thing in his post game conference that we played too much 1 on 1 in the 4th......Hopefully it will sink in.....

    Just finished watching the replay. Geez the Celtics are good when they want to be. Defensively the side can stop anyone if they want too. The thing that will kill the Celtics is their own laziness when they build a lead.

    Looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Perk has to be one of the most under rated defensive centers in the game. Anyone else able to handle Howard the way he does? Rondo, well his play speaks for itself. As long as one of Ray/KG/Pierce get hot, they can play with anyone in the league. In any case I like our chances, C's in 5.

    Yep, this is a very intense game. Pierce is looking great too. We should win this one if we can make smart decisions and also play good defense.

    Gortat and Howard are playing very well for the Magic. Come on Celts.

    kendrick perkins needs to take a little off his passes when the player recieving the pass is less than 4 feet away. not only does it end up as a turnover but someday hes going to kill somebody. every pass he makes is 100 mph:(

    Reddick might have just cost the Magic that game. That shot was close! No matter though. If the Celtics keep chasing the Magic off the three point line the way they have, they should be able to sweep them.

    Farken boo ya! That's a great win on the road. Shame I didn't put some money on them. The Celtics were paying $3.90 here for the win.

    2-0 going back to Boston is massive.

    Freekin' awesome, what a win, really looked like they were tiring towards the end there but stepped it up again.

    Paul Pierce's great 6th foul. Always like Vince Carter but I've always questioned his ability to peform at crunch times in games too.

    Come on Celtics finish it in 4 now for the sweep!

    I'd be lying if I said I wasn't concerned about the team going quiet scoring for large stretches of fourth quarters but by God have they picked up and made the plays during this finals season when they needed to!

    Come on Celtics.

    If the Celtics won tonight, there was no doubt in my mind they would have essentially booked their tickets to the finals and they did just that. No way I see them losing this series.

    Rondo made some fantastic shots tonight, it's really been amazing to see this kid grow up right in front of us. Pierce making big free throws once again tonight.

    Those two missed free throws by Vince Carter and the horrible waste of clock by JJ helped us seal the deal.
