Once again, apparently the refs handed the Celtics the game. Yes, there were bad calls, but they went both ways. I am amazed by how much fans around the league really don't like KG. But if they had a chance to trade for him, I bet they wouldn't complain. My favorite comment was this one "It's Boston. If refs don't make a call, KG will intense all over the place." Only KG could make intense a verb.
I am so stoked for tomorrow's game. Its not really a "must win" but we must not get punked or pushed around or bullied. I know Garnett is gonna try to mess with Oden. I don't want our momentum killed by a demoralizing loss.
If we lose this game it better be a hardfought competitive game and not a blow out with stupid KG hootin' and hollerin'
People in the NBA are starting to think that KG is a fake thug and that he needs to be called out on all his antics, since he likes to talk tough, but can't back it up.
Kevin Garnett needs to go back to college and take some classes, he is like 30 years old and still talks like some thug from high school. Before I heard him talk I thought he was smart. Just because he is older, so older people have more wisdom. But nope.
The key to beating the Celtics is to pound the ball inside to Oden and get Perkins into foul trouble. After him they have a very short or bad back-up situation.
The Celtic who concerns me most is Rondo. His pestering of Blake could be our Achilles heel this game.
Ya know... I don't think we are going to lose this game.. I was reading an article on oregonlive.com and it gave me hope that we are level headed and ready for Boston.. Almost like the bully you know is going to try and take ur lunch money but you been practicing your quick right hook.. And its like . As soon as he approaches me...BAM!!! Ima drop him.. Lol.. But I mean we may not win.. But I wouldn't be surprised if we did..
I want to see Oden block every shot KG takes... Even if it is a goaltend. Just don't let the ball touch the rim. Ever. KG can score 50, as long as the ball never touches the rim.
Hopefully KG isn't an **** tomorrow. He seriously vaulted my hatred for the Celts to a whole 'nother level.
You must channel your inner sea of calm, and realize that only these two franchises possess Bill Walton championship rings. Then and only then will you find peace.
Very valid point, but in a sense, the fact that Walton got Boston titles is semi-depressing for me personally
I almost wish Przybilla was still starting so that he could nip KG's trashtalk in the bud right off the bat. KG's terrified of anyone bigger than him, but Oden doesn't have the mentality for message-sending fouls like Przy does.
I hope KG tries to pull a Rickert but doesn't connect and gets ejected.
Kevin Garnett has and always will be a complete jerk. I'd say he even has a slight advantage over Kobe right now in that department. Say what you want about Kobe, but you would hardly ever see him taunting or taking a cheap shot on players like Garnett does on a nightly basis.
They have a ridiculous concentration of talent in their starting unit, but not much in the way of talent off the bench after Leon Powe. Our second unit is arguably the best in the league.
Half of Boston's fans are bandwagon jumpers. When KG and Ray went to Boston they ran onto the Celtics wagon. Lmao its disgusting. Fake fans. Gotta love em
[from a Lakers fan] Pulling for you guys tonight Trailblazers. Go show Boston what the WESTis made of!!!!
If I were a Celtics fan I would be pretty damn confident tonight. Boston is just a better team, and they are playing at home.
I love that BRoy is talkin right back to Pierce, and then droppin shots right in his face
I love how KG gets away with going up to players and getting in their face with trash talking and the refs let him do it because it's how he shows he's "intense." I've lost so much respect for KG the last two years, it's incredible. Used to be one of my favourite players.
And I know the Celtics are "the champions", so why do they need help from the referees?
It is annoying though to see Boston get all the ticky tack calls and us get nothing, but I guess that's what home court is about
The refs sent the Celtics to the line several times when they weren't even touched. Remember the play where Pierce penetrated and stopped, and Roy was backing up and they called a foul on Roy? Roy didn't even touch him.
The refs are letting Roy get hammered.
I know the Celtics are good, but we're beating ourselves just as much as theyre beating us. The refs are usually bad in the NBA but they are in no way the reason for this game at all. Every single player on our team is playing like garbage. There isnt one single player playing well and it doesn't even look like theres one person who really cares right now either
We need a 24 to 0 run to take the lead.
Gimme a break, the fans that are trying to blame this loss on the refs. STFU. Seriously. We got outplayed bad. Again.
But the real difference for me is our inability to do anything about Rajon Rondo. He was far too quick for Blake who couldn't stay in front of him, and clearly Sergio couldn't do any better.
It's Boston. If refs don't make a call, KG will intense all over the place.
"Big Baby" crying. Classic. Made my whole night.
It sucks because Oden wanted to be aggressive out there, you can tell. Then the refs give him some ticky tacky fouls that just take him out of the game which does a number on his confidence. He is a big body, he is going to make contact with people, let them play on for petes sake! I hope that with time the officials will learn how to officiate him.
