Here are comments found around the Pacers' boards during their game with the Celtics. I agree with the last commment. Garnett will never go down without a fight and he won't let his teammates stop fighting either. KG is a difference maker and makes everyone he plays with better.
Gosh I hope we don't get embarassed on national TV...
Make the green black and blue
I'm hoping there's NOT a Celtics-Pacers series this year though, it would be the inverse of the 2004 first-round series, and I would have to gnash my teeth. Screw that, gimme the lottery pick!
Anyone familiar with wwe wrestling....well that theme song for vince mcmahon "NO CHANCE" is running through my head... YOU GOT! NO CHANCE! NO CHANCE IN HELLLLLLLLLLLLL UH YOU GOT! NO CHANCE!
Could get ugly.
Nah it will be close. I would put money on it that its not going to be a 15+ loss even if we lose. I could see the Celtics resting their starters a little since the Pistons are doing it. We should win this game.
I think we are gonna go out there and surprise them.. No, not win.. But make it a tough game for them.. They aren't going to win as easily as they think.. We got JO back and he is gonna make KG fight for every single bucket..
Celtics are tired from last nite and does not want to push their stamina getting ready for the play-offs
9-2 wasn't the start I was looking for.
We really don't have much of a chance...right now Boston is making it look way too easy.
You know it's bad when scrubs like Leone powe are killing you! Least
The refs seemingly have made the game one sided themselves.. They are not calling some things that should have been called against Boston..
How the hell do we have 14 FTs to Boston's 5?
Jermaine is getting robbed!! They are pullin on his Jersey and they aren't even callin anything!
House is a jerk.
It's awesome when they have their second unit in and you are down 10.. How great does that feel??
They arent calling SQUAT in favor of the Pacers... Ugh
I don't think you can say that, we have taken almost twice as many free throws as the Celtics have.
Exactly. I have no problems with the officiating (so far). We just suck.
Put all the bench players in!! It worked pretty well with Boston..
26 points, my lord. I remember only 2 years back when games against the Celtics during April were usually extremely entertaining (and fruitful for the Pacers). Now it's not even close.
Ya know? What I think it is.. The Pacer players were shook before they even stepped on the court.. And they psyched themselves out... That is why they are playing so horrid...
It's a good thing we won't make the playoffs...4 straight games of this would be unbearable. This is painful enough...
We got em right where we want em! They played yesterday! The third quarter is our biggest quarter always! We always play well in the third and finish strong in the 4th. HEEEEERE COME THE PACERS!
I don't know how extensively you guys have watched the Celts this year, but this is not their highest level. The 2nd half could be significantly worse. Just a warning really.
Why is it that we always seem to have random guys that normally suck, turn into "Pacer killers" when we play them.. There's got to be something wrong there..
The Celtics are just on another level compared to us. I really think they're the best team in the league so I don't feel too bad about this performance, but I'd love to see SOME effort on the defensive end.
Can we get hubie brown to be our coach? He seems to have a better handle on what our team should do then Obie does...
We won the 3rd quarter!!!!
Being down by 16 isn't that embarrassing. Looking like a bunch of people with no clue what they're doing on the floor while Boston plays around with us is what's embarrassing.
I think our boys are getting hungry now and can taste a comeback
Um...no. If it starts to get close, Boston will refocus and smack us back down.
Too bad KG owns JO on both ends!
Mannnn garnett is just standing there grabbing rebounds effortlessly!
The Celtics are far too talented for Detroit to handle, especially when you consider the Piston's history of recent playoff meltdowns.
Give us back the missed FT's and wide open 3's and we only lose by 10 I think...
Pathetic performance by the Pacers all around...pathetic effort, pathetic execution, pathetic preparation, pathetic pride.
The thing that bothered me most though is how little pride this team has. They've just become too accustomed to losing. Once Boston made that initial run, they just started going through the motions as if they didn't care whether they won or lost...and they lost quietly. If you're going to lose, at least lose with some noise, pride and inner-fight. I remember a day and age when everyone on the Pacers hated losing, and took the court with pride...if another team tried to run up the score on an off night, team pride kicked in...I can't say I saw anyone on the floor too bothered with losing tonight. The difference between JO and Garnett, regardless of physical health/condition is in team pride. Do you think Garnett would have gone down quietly in a game like that? Pathetic.
