This is as big as the reg season gets, get this one for the city and lets help espn get off Boston's you know what.
The Celtics streak is history. They can't win in this building. They lost all 3 in the playoffs and the Hawks are better while the Celtics got worst without posey or brown. we got this one!
Hawks are 1-9 in their building. This is a tough place to win and the Celtics are going to come in overconfident with their big win streak and the Hawks will take them down a peg or 2.
I just heard that Faker Pierce is going to play. That guy fakes more injuries than anyone in the league and then comes out like a hero to save the day. I hate Pual Pierce.
How many Phantom Fouls calls will Pierce get tonight?
You know we'll be seeing crocodile tears from Pierce all night. He'll limp like his knee is hurt to begin the game. He'll limp like his back is hurt after Smoove breathes on him under the basket. He'll limp around holding his head at the end of the 1st Quarter.
PP reminds me of Fred Sanford ..... "Elizabeth - I'm coming to join ya honey!"
We're 9-1 at home They're 9-1 on road Stern better send those Boston refs if they want the W
Can't let Garnett bully us around
Ray Allen will play sparingly, spraining an ankle after slipping on Glen Davis' puddle of tears on the way to the scorer's table.

I'll be rooting hardcore for you guys. I loved that playoff series last year. I love your team and how they play against the Celtics. Give those babies something to cry about again.
The key to beating the Celtics is keeping Rondo in check !
Rondo has been killing people lately. I think he had 25 points, 9 assists, 8 rebounds and 3 steals last game. He set a record for the fastest triple double in league history about 2 weeks ago. He is blossoming.
His jumper is a major weakspot
The Celtics have a lot of weapons. Containing Rondo is a lot easier said than done/
Rondo is so overrated it's ridiculous, he is completely a product of great teammates.
Rondo is a beast. I wanted him in the draft even with the 5th pick. At the time he would've been a reach but looking back he definitely would be top 5. Plus we picked Shelden, a guy who was obviously a college baller and not NBA material.
I notice this in the Toronto game, but it seems as soon as the other team gets T'ed up, that the refs start being very slow to blow on their whistle for a bit after that.
The Celtics clearly are uncomfortable playing the Hawks in Atlanta.
The refs gave the Celtics some calls I disagreed with...particularly in the 3rd quarter. KG traveled and double dribbled on the same play and they didn't call it. Pierce also had and and 1 where he dribbled after the whistle and it counted and Perkins 3 point play was a 3 second violation(although I can't blame the refs for the no-call). The play where they just gave Boston the ball after the player was clearly out of bounds was the 2nd worst call of the night after the KG double dribble.
You still have to give the Celtics a lot of credit. They pulled out a tough win on the road and KG stepped up when his team needed him. It's a long way away but I wouldn't mind playing them in the playoffs again...
The Hawks and Celtics have played basically even in both games. Change a single play in either game and you get a different outcome. It just sucks we could have ended that streak.
I don't think anyone is to blame in particular for this loss other than the Celtics being a great team. I don't think people realize how hard it is to beat Boston...their defense is historically good.
I really thought we would win this one when we got up 6 and seemed to have the momentum. Damn refs didn't help us...I understand walking and double dribbles - apparently the refs don't.
I was at the game and the ref and the calls were totally in Boston's favor! One of the worst officiating games i've ever seen. i'm sure you all saw the foul on the Hawks when Cry Baby Pierce slips and falls. What a joke!
I have finals but f that, the study guide is taking a bee line into the bookbag.
hahahahaha same bro. got my last one tomarrow, ef studying.
