its never to early
congrats on winning the championship celts
i've watched the entire playoffs and it's a slam dunk, celts own their homecourt
wire to wire hasn't been done since the bulls i believe, i'm probably wrong though
I feel pretty good about this game. I have only two 'small' worries, Perkins and the C's fatigue. I think if Perkins injury wasn't a serious problem he would have played tonight through the pain. Anything that was so bad he couldn't play in a possible series clinching game 5 isn't going to get better before game 6. I could be wrong though obviously. I also worry a little about how much effort the Celtics have given up until this point and what toll that has taken. That being said, I think they should have still won this game tonight and are clearly the better team even without Perkins and with KG paying a very sub par game. Home court should carry them over.
the 25 playoff games is taking its toll...tuesday will be another tired game. hope they use the crowd to pull through.
the injuries are catching up to them also. they need home court now more than ever. kg missed those two free throws because he was exhausted. no perk really bothers me.
pierce played 47mins and 58 secs. dont know how he missed 2 secs in the game. he really wanted to close this out yesterday. remains to be seen how much they have left. iam confident our crowd will be louder than the lakers crowd and even more than our gillette crowd
Even if Perk has nothing more to offer than 6 HARD fouls on Gasol or whoever dares enter the paint...that is worth it to me. The Lakers 'out-physicaled' us in Game 5. We can't have that again.
farmar had so many run ins to the basket, we cant have that. having said that, a big kobe night like lebron had in game 7 scares me.
I think Pierce stepped out when the Celts had to fould at the end.
Garnett should be well rested and do not think he'll have back to back bad games. Also, it seemed like addtional subs played quite a bit last night. Perkins was really missed, hopefully, he can play the next game. The mauling on some of the Celtics should be called at the Garden. Rajon usually plays a lot better at home. I would like to see him drive to the basket and SHOOT. That one layup was rediculous when he passed out. I don't think Kobe will be the Laker who receives the most boos. That would belong to the flop master with the hair net.
im not worried about the crowd. they will be into it all the way thru. they will be nuts. i hope that gives them the energy they are going to need.
Guys, your Celts will be fine. You almost (and probably should have) pulled out Game 5. Wasn't there TWO comebacks in the game? L.A. doesn't stand a chance in Boston.
"Even if Perk has nothing more to offer than 6 HARD fouls on Gasol or whoever dares enter the paint...that is worth it to me. The Lakers 'out-physicaled' us in Game 5."
Couldn't agree more; to see that Euroballbag dominate under the glass made me want to puke, the skirt wearer that he is, he is the softest big man I have ever seen...............
Also possibly the ugliest.
And the Giants didn't stand a chance in the Super Bowl and the Red Sox didn't stand a chance down 3 games to the Yankees in 2004 yada yada yada.....
"Also possibly the ugliest."
lol........he wins that prize hands down; and would someone tell him to stop with the demonstrative howls and grunts and chest thumping after every friggin basket. We get it Pau, you are something special..........
your track record isnt very good in the playoffs. you said the celts were done when they lost game two against the pistons and you picked the lakers . now im really worried
Yeah, but picking the Lakers was the popular pick. I thought it would come down to 7 games and the Celts would lose by one point in game 7 so call that a "safe" pick . And, when I say the Lakers don't stand a chance in Boston, I mean they don't stand a chance to win BOTH of those games. Could they pull out one and force a Game 7? Sure. But with that crowd and the way the Celts have been playing (should have won Game 5), I have my doubts about the Lakers ability to make a comeback.
Strange. Usually when I make predictions about the NBA, I'm right. This postseason I'm 0-3 (you forgot what I said about the Cavs).
like i said now im really worried.
Boston is insane already and the TD will be rockin' :rocker: the entire time. I can't see anybody pulling an LA Faker and cutting out early- no way.They'll be screaming til the final tick
a friend of mine went to see tom petty last friday night at the garden. she said every time he finished a song the crowd started with beat LA beat LA. she said it went on all night long. she said it was crazy . even on the way out of the show it was beat LA beat LA.
