Here are comments found around the Suns boards during their game with the Celtics. These are definitely more fun to read when we win. I love the projected starters from the game thread. I actually think the refs have been against the Celtics more than they have been for them. For the most part they have been horrible both ways.
Suns match up very well against Boston.
I really wan't the Suns to win this game seeing as how I hate Boston.
Celtics Projected Starters: [PG] Rajon Rondo [SG] Ray Allen [SF] Paul Pierce [PF] Kevin Garnett [C] Kendrick Perkins [Referee] #1 [Referee] #2 [Referee] #3
This'll probably be another close one. It'll be slow and very physical. But I think we'll be okay because of Shaq. I hope we jump on 'em in the 1st quarter. It'll be nice to get an early lead (and hopefully keep it).
KG vs Amare Interesting match up.
Last time Pierce was terrible, don't think that'll happen this time. Bet our guys come in fired up for this 1, after the Piston ref joke show... Hope Amare doesn't let KG get his head, just like last time.
I noticed a lot in the last week, pierce does the thing where he locks arms with another player and intentionally spins so it looks like the other guy was hugging him and gets called for a foul
If he does that against the suns, he will quickly go in as one of my most despised players in the NBA, I hope the refs are ready and onto it for this one or else it could have a big factor
Oh yeah, amare KG will be huge, I think KG is going to be overly phsyco pumped for this one like a UFC fighter with roid rage (I swear garnett must be bipolar or something) I saw last week the dude was punching HIMSELF in the face???!!?? Dude should be suspended for assaulting an NBA player
All that self chest-smashing got his torso beat up so bad, dude's just gotta go after a diff part of his body now. Wonder which body part he'll go after next
This would be the most gratifying pre-playoff game to win, against a Celtic team that has dominated the West and to do it on their floor, the prettiest floor in the NBA.
If Suns are going to beat the Celtics today they will do it only by outrebounding them. If we outrebound them for 48 minutes then we got a W.
Hopefully we see a preview of the NBA finals tonight
Refs suck already. Bad call on Nash, HORRIBLE call on Perkins.
Suns are sloppy, but on the other hand Celts playing excellent d Nice to see amare-shaq tandem in work
Nice flop by Nash. He was on the position though..
Wow........Boris fouling someone who's shooting from his knees like a Globetrotter.........
The ç's are owning us in the paint, seems like we came out with no energy tonight
Our team defense is pretty bad right now, the Celtics have so many weapons.
This is too easy for Amare. Can anyone out there play decent D vs the beast? Too damn good.
Someone get a gun and cap all these refs. Horrfic
The NBA.. Where Eastern Conference officiating happens.
Thought Nash was still moving, that wasn't a bad call. The ref T'd him up way too quick though.
I liked how bavetta tried to save Nash from the technical
That was just retarded by Nash. We were in the penalty right? If we werent he should have fouled him Rajon just embarrased him.
What a way to end the half, rondo just dribbled the whole damn length of the court and layed it right in to tie it up.
Shaq has gotten his legs back under him. Perkins is a legit body to have to bang against down low.
I don't know how we can expect to be a championship contender when our MVP is constantly getting outplayed by the likes of Rajon Rondo
Rando is killing us!
This is unreal. That's a tech on Shaq for wiping a guys arm off of him? So what the **** are you supposed to do when a guys is hanging on you? Get him a cup of tea?
Just brutal, amare got shut down.
Cmon Pierce.. No need to flop at this point... You just look like a moron.
Amare should never leave KG open.....seriously.
Nice to see Paul peirce can travel and dish the ball with a no call
Talk about giving up. The Celtics broke their spirits in the 3rd quarter. That's downright embarrassing.
4 minutes to go and nba.com has already updated the standings with a Boston win and a Suns loss.
It's funny that everyone jumped on Boston for having a bad supporting cast. What I wouldn't give to have guys like Rondo, Davis, Powe, Perkins and Posey replacing Barbosa and Diaw.
Freaking Hornets pulled it out again with 1 second...damn....That team scares me more than the Lakers, Suns, or Celtics
Wow Ray Allen still in the game up 20 with 30 secs left the Suns went to scrubs with 3 mins left
I'll never understand why we got rid of Rondo.
dantoni said at the time he didnt want a PG who couldnt shoot the 3 and given how well marcus banks worked in our system, its easy to see why
