I have to say, comments from the other boards are more fun to collect when the Celtics are winning. But, the Pacers fans have a right to be proud of their team. They played with heart and the Celtics did not.
Ford is making Rondo and House look silly.
Could Troy Murphy win Defensive Player of the Year? He is outplaying Garnett and so he is making a good case for it.
Rush is so aggressive defensively. He just slapped the ball out of Scalabrine's hands. We're getting so many steals. But then, I could probably slap the ball out of his hands. He isn't exactly an all star.
It would be really good for our attendance if we can defeat the champions in the home opener.
Ford is working Rondo pretty good... 4 fouls
TJ's the reason why Rondo got those 4 fouls...He's playing great defense as well, he's just too quick for anyone to defend him without fouling him which is bad news for the C's because his free-throws are money!...
Granger is an all star. His teeth shattered on the floor and he kept playing. Awesome
Celtics don't look that great. They won't repeat. They'll be lucky to make the playoffs. Pacers will challenge for the east and Celtics will go back where they belong to the lottery.
TJ Ford totally owned this game and nobody on Boston could even contain him. TJ Ford's speed got Rondo in foul trouble and opened up so much space with him on the bench.
Nothing to get too excited about. Celtics in early foul trouble on the end of a back-to-back this early in the season? The Grizzlies could have won this game.
Nothing to be excited about? We just beat the best team in the league. Its not just a win for us. Now teams could start repecting us and we're not the laughing stock of the NBA. Its not just a mere win for us, its much more!
Granger is doing exactly what a player should to ascend to the 'lead by example' mantle. Hey, we have players that get injured and aren't drama queens. Refreshing. Celtics can't say the same for Pierce the drama queen.
Top ten things overheard on the Celtics team plane after getting blown out by the Pacers.
#10 Man... We knocked his teeth and he still came after us. #9 You suck. #8 No, YOU suck! #7 I thought they were ranked 24th? #6 Aren't big market stars allowed to travel? #5 OK, guys, shake it off. At Houston Tuesday! Easy game. #4 Whats that smell... Oh it's 4-15 Pierce in the bathroom. #3 Nope...it's the lingering whiff of 4-15 on the court. #2 That was wicked frustrating. Hey! I saw Larry Bird at the game! #1 I'm depressed. Let's go join Jamaal at the strip club!
Will the pundits say the Pacers are underestimated, or the Celtics are vulnerable?
It's also amazing that some people think winning one game means the Pacers are going to win it all.
Boston only had three double-digit losses last season on its way to a 66-16 record.
There was no competition tonight.
Did anyone else see the face the ref made when he looked over and saw Danny's shattered chicklets? That was pretty gruesome. No blood, no foul/No teeth, swallow the whistle.
The fact that Boston was on a back to back means nothing. No more excuses for Boston please. Just drop it!!!
For those of you talking about the green jerseys. Isn't it great they spent money to watch the "greenies" get hammered by a team they had already chalked up as a win?
Overheard in the Conseco fieldhouse bathroom after the game. "Hey will they give me the 30% discount on a KG for Granger trade?"
