Here are comments found around the Mavs' message boards during their game with the Celtics. It is always interesting to see what the other side is saying.
I wish KG was playing. Hopefully we still decide to show up.
It sucks KG and Ray arent going to be playing so theres the excuse for the Celtics if they lose.
I really wish that KG and Allen would both be playing. With KG and Allen both playing, it will be a true test for the Mavs. (Playing one of the NBAs best teams with all of their starters) Not that tonight isn't going to be a true test, because it is... But I just wish the Celtics were 100%.
I'm not liking this. KG is out, so if we win we are supposed to win, if we lose, then why couldn't we win playing them w/o KG? It's a no win situation.
The Celtics will have to play exceptional to stay in this game.
Well I think Celts played well without KG and Allen last game. They really have a much better bench than I thought.
It might be a good idea to cover Ray Allen...Easily the worst sounding rims I have heard this year
Allen is going to have a big night! He looks so relaxed and confortable shooting.
Ray Allen has such a smooth shooting touch! That last shot when he went through a screen and caught the ball and shot almost in one motion! I've always felt that Allen is one of just a few PURE shoorters in the league.
Will someone tell me what in Sam hill is up with these rims? Are these guys shooting frozen basketballs or what? They even clank on MADE shots hahah and it's annoying....
Could that be why the shooting pct of visiting teams is so low? A little home court advantage?
Without KG the Celtics do not have any low post defensive players.
The Celtics are giving this to the Mavs.
Pierce getting bailed out every time
I wasn't going to say anything on the first one... But two "star" calls to pierce.... Nba home court advantage in full swing tonight.
Rondo off rebound ??? ARE YOU **** KIDDING ME ?????
Dirk with the unclutch non box out on Rondo. Really disappointing loss.
Well, it's time to go after Jason Kidd, -_-.
I bet we would have won this game with devin Harris though. Dal had 20 points in the paint while Boston had 44. And that was without Kevin garnett. Man imagine a driving devin Harris, he would have had 20+ something, some free throws and some dish outs to the 3pt line. Instead of terry shooting 4-12. On a side note: I remember a few weeks back how there was a Ryan Gomes rumor or something and it seemed most people on this board were against going after him, even giving up our young guys to get him. And people were talking about rather having Rayshawn Terry over Gomes. I thought it was proposterous that people wouldn't want Gomes and of course the guy has been pretty damn nice for the Wolves. We could have used him off of the bench.
With the Celts team defense, they will be in every game they play.
Leon Powe should worry Celt opponents more than anyone. You know what you get from Kevin Garnett, Pierce and Allen. But Powe playing well makes them a diffrerent team.
So, will Rondo's playground moves stick in the NBA? If so, why don't more players do them? The pass fake forced Dirk to foul him in the fourth.
If Brian Scalabrine is it behind Kevin Garnett, the Celts are screwed.
