Here are comments from around the Spurs boards during their game with the Celtics. I really don't want to ever hear about Tommy being a homer after listening to their announcers. And the officiating was terrible both ways, not just in the Celtics favor as the Spurs got away with quite a bit too. Some pretty interesting stuff here. Enjoy....
Just win, please A blow-out would be ideal
If this was a road game, I'd say we have no chance. At home, we have a chance, albeit a small one.
This could be the game to get us back on track. It's far from a easy win but we need to go all out and get some confidence back in this team.
Have no doubt Spurs fan..Spurs will KILL the C's. HOME COOKING. Pay Back time
Allen a game-time decision. How bout sittin' out this one, Ray?
Don't forget, The Celtics beat us last year at home on St. Patty's Day. It's going to be a good game that we have to win.
Why do we have to play the Celtics on St. Patrick's Day again? That's like playing the Mexican National Team on Cinco de Mayo.
Which is why I refused to wear green today. Instead, I am wearing my Duncan road jersey.
Big game for the spurs...I think they win simply because they're gonna want it more.
I'll be 5th row...hopefully close enough to burp green beer stench all over Paul Pierce.
This is a WIN! I am feeling this one fellas. Spurs are at home, finally had a day off and Spurs will have two days off after this game. The energy at the arena will be NUTS! Spurs are out for blood in this game. THey don't want 4 losses in a row.
Spurs need to win this game to stop the bleeding. It will be a tough game for sure. The Celtics match up well against our big 3 pretty well. Garnett on Duncan down low. Rondo can keep pace with the quickness of TP. Posey poses a problem for manu with his physical bordering on dirty style. I think it will be a defensive and low scoring game for both teams.
This is the best I've seen from the Spurs all year. 28-11 After the first.
I love seeing Tim Duncan work the post and muscle past KG..........
The Spurs are shooting 57% from the field and from 3pt land, while the Celtics are shooting only 23% from the field and 0% from 3pt land.
Big Baby is a rebounding beast.
Cassel keeping Celtics in the game. He's on fire
Can we swap Finley for Cassell straight up?
Bad third quarter by the Spurs. They really need to pick up the slack. Please beat Boston!
Sean... What a homer... Not as bad as Tommy nonetheless
I find it hilarious how the C's board has been talking **** about our announcers.
Posey is f'ing dirty...
I am sick and tired of teams coming into our house and getting calls over and over and over again.
Calm down my friend. Boston has been doing this all year, no surprise. I've had a chance to watch a handle full of Boston games this year and they are getting handed games. Sucks, but Spurs are going to have to play through it and hope they even out the calls.
Containing Pierce for the rest of the game is key I think. He KILLED us last game we played.
13-2 run now by the Celtics. Down 1 now, what the heck happened to that lead? O yeah, and didn't I say something about containing Pierce?
What a collapse. I expected the Celts to make adjustments, but not the spurs not making counter ones.
Refs really need to reign in Garnetts thugery.
Now the refs are handing the game to the Celts with Bogus calls. One on Bruce earlier and now one on Thomas when Garnett threw an elbow and THomas got called for the foul!
Guys you might as well forget about the refs. The far gone in the season the refs are not going to call Boston games different. NBA wants this.
Rondo is destroying us.
K.Perkins gets away with a LOT of HOLDING on screens
I've said this before: Is it a coincidence the Lakers are also allowed to this same slap happy defense.
I know, but they got away with it a LOT more in the game in Boston. One thing is for sure... Its gonna be very difficult for any team to get more than 1 win in Boston in the playoffs, especially if they are allowed to reach, slap and grab as much as they do. Since they have the best record in the league (and HCA throughout) that means you gotta win all your games at home and hope to STEAL ONE on the road, cuz you won't get 2 from them in Boston in the same series. The refs will make sure of that.
Here comes the Boston run...better buckle down now guys, if this game is within reach better believe the Refs will give this game to them.
Need to send that tape to the League of that shot to the back of Timmys head by Posey after the whistle.
If they have five white jerseys in the paint for the defensive rebound, they think the opponent won't crash the boards. Instead the opponent PG just goes into an undefended area and gets the EASY rebound.
Another torching by the opponent's point guards.
And they didn't even have their 3rd best player
We are indeed the 7th seed. 2.5 games from the 8th seed and lottery balls believe it or not. We better pray to god Golden state or Denver don't catch fire man.
If the Spurs keep playing like this and luck into a 7th or 8th seed -- I'd rather take my chances in the lottery . . . it's been kind to us before.
Stop blameing this loss on the REFS people. The Spurs lost this game, there is no other excuse.
Lets give the Celtics credit. I thought their defense in the 4th quarter down the stretch was very good. Reminded me of our good ole days.
The refs didn't cost anyone the game tonight, they lost by themselves to I hate to admit but a better team.
