Two themes running through the comments recently have been the fact that fans think that the Celtics get special treatment from the refs and teams are all clamoring for their coaches to be fired. Reminds me of the Celtics the year we had the 18 game losing streak. Every other post was how dumb Doc is and how he needed to be fired. Hint to Sixers fans: It isn't always the coach. I am glad that Danny didn't give in to all the calls for Doc's head. As for the refs, they are terrible. But, the bad calls go both ways. They aren't singling out the Celtics for special treatment. How else would you explain the fact that the Celtics have more technical fouls than any other team? It is just bad officiating and fans tend to see the calls that are bad for their team and ignore the ones that go their way.
Love the Sixers in this game. That other team can't shoot and play no defense.
I've got a good feeling about this game(maybe it's because the Eagles win made me a bit more optimistic?). Hopefully they keep it close and pull out a win at the end. Should be interesting to see how Brand will do against KG.
I believe we can stay competitive in this one. I think everyone will be motivated after letting the last one "slip" from us.
2 turnovers and Perkins just owned him. Please sit Daly for Speights.
You know it's bad when someone who doesn't belong in the league like Perkins owns you. Man he's a bad player. Perkins might be the worst center in the NBA.
Perkins sucks. You'll never win anything with him starting at center for you.
What?? They just won a championship with him as a starter. I would take him over Daly.
No, Perkins doesn't suck, and he's outplaying Dalembert right now.
These refs are horrendous. A clear goaltend, clear change of possession, and Perkins clearly picks up the foul on Brand and garnett raises his hand to save Perkins from picking up his second, and the refs call the foul on KG.. These refs really need to be held accountable.
Perkins has actually come a long way in just 2 years. Finally learning some post moves and actually being a solid 5th option in the post. As well as a solid post defender. I'd like Samuel Dalembet to learn how to box out. Anyone get the feeling Boston's toying with us here?
Sometimes I wish we were as half disiciplined as this Boston Team. SEE THAT, That's how you double. Don't leave any way for him to pass the ball. Only way Miller passes it is if the player comes to him, therefore they can set up and not allow an open shot.
I think Big Baby is on the Charlie Weis diet. What a fat frickin slob.
16 pts? Please trade for a scorer off the bench. Ricky Davis, anyone...
Ricky Davis is never the answer.
Can we kidnap Tom Thibodeau?
I feel like I'm watching the Washington Generals.
I really should stop watching this game because I'm overcome by a deep sense of jealousy every time I watch a team like the Celtics. Then I start binge drinking.
Thrse refs are really bad tonight. I know Boston has the stars and are a better team, but come on, they are getting every call.
By the time I'm done writing this message, Ray Allen would have drained another 3-pointer.
I will be shocked if Mo isnt fired after this game or during the season.
At least our uniforms look good out there.
Can we get Tom Thiabeau to coach the Sixers next yr? I wanna bring that stifling D to Philly.
