    What the Celts really need to do is explode offensively right out of the gates which will be a little harder to do in L.A. than it was in Boston. If they can get a good lead by the end of the first, the game will be tough to wrestle away from them (though not impossible). Oh, and CLOSE... GAMES... OUT.

    I call a big game from....RAY ALLEN. And a good bench performance by Eddie House.

    I think in Game 2 Rondo realized that he can get by any Lakers PG guarding him, and that as a result, he can get an open look for his teammates on nearly every drive. That's what I am going to look for tonite - can Rondo stay confident and aggressive...thats the key to the game. Ultimately, I say we win and go up 3-0.

    He still needs to take a couple of more shots though. I realize his job is to get the ball into the hands of the Big Three but they're not always open for a clean shot. If they're not open and he's on clean drive and gets one open look, he should shoot it.

    A win is a win but to allow 40+ points in the 4th quarter is inexcusable. I was sweating that one out because I had $50 on the game.

    It is inexcusable but I think they know that. I can't imagine it happening again. No money on the game but I have blood, sweat and tears invested in this Celtics team.

    If Odom doesn't show up, it might be over as they are most likely not going to hit the outside (and beyond the arc) as they did in the last quarter. Without a Laker showing up inside, its going to be difficult for them.

    Pierce remains the key to the Celtics (MVP). The bench may have something to say about this, will Powe become a household name? Think about it, if he finds his way to the basket, what Laker is going to stop him? Not when you have all the Celtic options available. I'll either be reading a book late into the night (not good as I can't sleep) or I'll be watching sports center (gloating).

    Yeah Odom, I guess you cant wrap your arms around Pierce just because you think the officials are with you.

    Sometimes I feel like Perk gets excited like a little puppy then sh*ts all over the place with a bad pass. Let's hope he matures a bit in-series. Jeebus I hope they all stop throwing balls away. Don't they know there are too many children in 3rd world countries to be throwing all these balls away?

    Pretty sure Ray just answered that question. Dear God it's like watching a bunch of 5 year olds on Ritalin.

    Damn KG just lay it in, he misses a few too many dunks....just keep it simple.

    I feel that the C's are playing good defense (apart from Kobe's 8 FTs in the first quarter) just not shooting well and turning over the ball too much.

    They look like they settled in a bit on offense...sometimes I think their defensive energy translates poorly to the O and they have some trouble balancing the 2 sides of the court. With that said, if they can settle down a bit and take the crowd out with some good D and consistent, productive offense, they are still in very good shape as Q1 winds down

    Jeeze, it's like they wanted to prove me wrong as soon as I hit "post" ;)

    OK 20-20 AT THE END OF THE FIRST.

    we came back and took the lead briefly and ended the quarter with a tie. good but we need to do better offensively, don't make bad passes and don't let Sam shoot it.

    considering how they have played i agree. they seem to be out rebounding the pussies. that's always a good sign.
