here we go again . GO :rocker:Celtics
Need to close this one out and wait for the 5th of june, i tell you these guys have to be dead tired, playing hard faught games every other day for the last 3+ weeks has got to be wearing on them bigtime.
oh man oh man oh man oh man oh man! I'm going to be breathing into a paper bag the entire game. Lob passes and passing when your wide open Doc. Drill it into their heads. If I see these things my head is going to straight up explode. Oh and when you drive to the basket, FINISH! The guy right next to you doesn't have any better a look than you do (Likely worse).
Ray Allen, confidence buddy. You kicked ass man.
Rondo, see paragrah above.
KG, dont look at the headlights man, get out of the street.
Perkins, wow, nothing to say to you after wed. Tear up them boards my brotha.
Pierce, consistency man and you'll be all right.
Cassel, wear your comfy warmups tonight.
The rest of the bench, get friendly with Cassel.
Doc, please please please dont screw this up!
I'm pulling for you guys tonight. A Celtics/Lakers series would be really fun to watch.
the finals dont start till wed so fatigue shouldnt be a issue for the celts or the pistons. however a six day layoff for the lakers may lead to them being a little rusty.:rocker:
I hate to say this because I know that I'm going to get a bunch of negative responses but: It doesn't matter who wins this one, the Lakers are taking the championship.
Just my predicition as a fan who does not root for either team.
you didn't think the Celtics would win on the road either you didn't think the pats would lose the SB. before you get mad I'm just saying you have been wrong in the past. i don't think anybody is worried about who you pick. so i wouldn't expect to much negative response
Oh I'm aware that I've been wrong. And who knows? I could very well be wrong on this. But watching the Lakers last night... I don't know man. Very strong on offense and defense. The series would go to 7 games but for my prediction, I would have to give L.A. the nod. Not being a negative nancy, JMO. That said, I do hope Boston or Detroit (whomever will advance) will stun them because I despise Kobe and hate the Lakers.
I think the C's match up well against the Lakers, and I'm not sure how much longer Kobe can keep playing so far over his head.
The NBA wants Celtics-Lakers, and they want it to go 7 and they want it to come down to a Kobe/Pierce/KG shot at the buzzer.
I expect horrible officiating through the first 6 games.
So what else would be different...never mind.
im not thinking about the finals. last time i checked the celtics were in the eastern confrence finals.
Ditto, this stuff makes me nervous. It seems like when teams get ahead of themselves and look past teams THEY ALWAYS LOSE. So please lets beat the Pistons before we talk about the Lakers/Celtics potential finals.
****, we cant settle for jump shots...
Rondo has been good and bad. Sometimes he has done bad offensively with bad shots and good shots. Defensively though he is getting beaten by Billups.
24-21 Celts at the end of one. Ray and Rip are going to have big scoring nights.
ray allen looks great. hes playing loose and hitting shots.:rocker:
But WE aren't playing, so it doesn't matter what WE idly chit chat about.
yes it does . its bad karma.
Sam, plz dont shoot. thx.
ENOUGH LONG JUMPERS.
Leave that for Ray. The rest of you try to get us some twos, thx.
I'm already nervous. Maybe I should just skip the third quarter and give my heart a rest.
Leon drawing some fouls. Awesome to see him in there for once this post season!
they are playing well. the offense looks smooth. i dont have the feeling like i want to put my head thru a wall or throw my tv out the window.
Leon and Eddie both need a few minutes here and there. Why do we 'force' Cassell into the rotation. Has any guard line-drived so many 15-footers and continued to do so without any remorse?
Rajon needs to get to the rim...stop the whole 'pass it out to KG for a 20footer routine'. We should get to the line a lot more than we do!
I don't know if I can watch these games with the volume on anymore if they continue to have Van Gundy, Jackson and Breen. Do you think any of the three watched a regular season game of the Celtics this year?
They kill on Rondo, yet anybody who watched the Celtics regularly during the season know he was unquestionably the third best player on the team during the year, and one of the most important players on the team. They constantly give Pierce backhanded compliments about how he's grown defensively, or with ball handling, or with passing, etc., when anyone who has watched Pierce regularly knows he has been playing this way for a long time. It's not just their comments on Rondo or Pierce that are frustrating, their general consensus on our bench, their complete ignorance of our offensive and defensive systems, their generic thoughts re: Ray Allen, KG, Doc, all seem to be completely based on the games they have announced - which I have concluded to be the ONLY games of the Celtics any of them watched this year.
Honestly, these guys are flat out the worst, most ill-informed announcers I have ever heard cover a local team of mine. You could pick random people up off the street and they would have better insight into the Boston Celtics.
Isn't it past your bedtime?
Man I had to miss the 1st half for a soccer coaching course. So looks like it was an okay 1st half ... what's the word on the Rip injury? He was faking to get a time out?
Which injury? The elbow from the other night or the leg thing tonight?
If it was tonight, it looked like he took a knee high in the quad area, but it also looks like he's a giant pee u ssy, but he did have ice on his leg after.
the Celts look like they have a chance to win this one. they are holding on to the ball for the most part. they look poised and relaxed out there .especially ray Allen lets hope it stays that way.
i wish TNT had all of the basketball games and as a matter of fact will probably do a better job on MNF too. Ernie johnson and crew is hilarious and smooth.
...............WHAT HE SAID :yeahthat:
THESE REFS SUCK! Are they EVER decent?
If these ****** refs put another bull**** foul on KG for 5, I will freak.
Theo Ratliffe and his expiring contract are a flop.
Paul had a great drive and should have drawn a blocking foul.
So next year they'll be looking at film of players "flopping" and fining them? Cool.
