The above picture was on one of the game threads and I really liked it and so decided to use it as a header for this post instead of the normal header. I have to say, the Raptors fans are the most prolific posters in game threads. There were between 50 and 80 pages in the game threads on 3 different boards. Whew! I don't know if they always post that way, or if it just that the Celtics bring that out of them. However, most of their comments were about how bad their own team was. They were brutal. I don't know if I have seen fans rip their own team that much in a game thread. They were especially down on Bosh who seemed to be playing timidly against KG. Enjoy today's issue of Comments from the Other Side. These are definitely more fun when we win!
Who's going to guard Rondo? I just read that teams have been putting bigger players on him and its the reason for his struggles of late.
Jake voskhul for first 2 minutes. Rondo will never attack again. Then Jake can cover KG
Don't really care about rondo, he's a scrub. KG and Pierce (and Allen) are the real issues.
Celtics have sucked lately. But I have a feeling they'll want a win, and beat the Raps, which will get them rolling again.
All I can say is beat them while they're on the ground...
We can do this! Boston been losing virtually every game as of late. Voskuhl murders KG! Let's do this!
I know the Celtics have been losing a lot lately but I'd rather have faced them when they lost 4 of 6 instead of now - because they've lost for for too long. They're probably going to come out and dominate. Then we'll lose a closer game on Monday
This may be a statement game by Boston to show that they are still the team to beat.
That ship has sailed. Cleveland and LA are now the teams to beat.
Will the real CB please show up for this game. If KG pushes, please push back.
I wanna see CB4 get in a fight with his idol Kevin Garnett.
Will be a great accomplishment if we can win one of two. I'm very worried. Boston are slumping and are going to take out all their anger on us.
Please Jay, no Kapono in these two games.
I hope the raps win at least 1 of the next 2 against Boston, otherwise we will be the team that got the C's out of their slump,... Ugh... Jake will maul KG in the first quarter no doubt... Bargs will decapitate KG on a dunk. Joey will bulldoze into KG and make him his own personal biatch.
COME ON RAPTORS!!!! Dirty Garnot,Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are no John Havlicek
It was one week ago that we were staring down the magic, who are arguably playing better ball than the Celts right now and took it to them.
Redemption...Celtics have no pride ATM and the raps r playing respectable ball so I predict a win...
I think Voskuhl "The Hitman" should injure Garnett
Please put Jake The Snake on KG, Jake is going to punk KG so bad. And you know KG isn't going to do anything even if Jake is white.
Giving the Celtics another loss would be sweet.
This game is really important. A win will further add to the demise of the lowly Celtics while adding to this surge of confidence the Raptors and probably result in another win on Monday. A loss on the other hand would probably spark this Celtics team and set them off onto a 20 game win steak while destroying any confidence we've built up over this past week.
So whos ready to march down to the ACC and instigate a fight that will suspend KG for another 10 games?
And of course the fight should be between Jake the Snake and KG. That way we only lose our scrub player for several games while they get their key player suspended.
Raptors win by 15..I'm also predicting a fight between Will Solomon and Rajon Rondo.
I just hope we give Rondo all the space in the world for him to shot. Last game I became very angry that Calderon was pushing up on him two feet past the three point line and getting blown past everytime. We need to make Rondo a jump shooter to win this game.
No Perkins, good for us
Wow Scalabrani is starting, he better be abused by someone.
Scalabrine's startin!! Really should help us.
Scalabrine vs. Bargs: A battle of EPIC whiteness.
If there is any team in this league that can start Boston on another winning streak, it's us.
Paul Pierce is injured! Watch out, he's gonna drop 60!
I HATE Pierce with the passion of a thousand burning suns!
Is PP hurt? Can we hurt him some more?
Someone going to guard ray at some point today?
Ray Allen is gonna burn us now but Pierce will be the one making contested fadeaways in the 4th
Soooooo yeah they might want to put somebody on Allen. Like, they should staple somebody to him.
Ray Allen is a raptor killer.
KG said the F word
Bosh is scared of KG
Boston's gonna win and use this game to beat us again Tomorrow and then go on a 22 game win streak.
The one person you don't want to leave open they manage to consistently leave WIDE open..
You know how Boston thrives on being "INTENSE" & "TOUGH". The Raptors players should all run over & help their players get up every time the fall on their asses. It's kind of hard to get worked up & be INTENSE when the other team is being nice to you......lol
Ray Allen is such a washed up piece of garbage, but stop giving him wide open looks Toronto
Look at Rondo push the ball and get KG an easy opportunity...why don't our guys ever do that??
Triano needs to tell Jake to just choke slam KG, then maybe we'll have a chance.
Bargnani can't handle Veal Scalabrine.
Calderon looks like a pylon Rondo is just running circles around him. Sad
let's trade for rondo, he drives
New drinking game: every time Rondo blows by Hose, you drink up.. Guaranteed you'll be wasted by the second half
Boston looks beatable, too bad we don't have any D type player that can look after Ray-Gun
Have you seen Rondo play this season? The Raps are making him look like Magic Johnson. The teams that know how to play him, he has been horrible. He can't shoot and is usually a liability on offence for the Celtics.
Can't believe we gonna lose to a very beatable Celtics team
You might as well play Bosh against Boston's bench. He can't do **** against KG.
Big Baby is outhustling the entire raps team.
How do you not see the giant shot clock above the basket?
Send whole raptors team to d-league. Celtics is probably playing at their worst basketball level as of right now, and we can't beat them? D-League.
Bosh is completely useless with KG on the floor.
Bird was not even close to lebron, come on NOW... How about looking at Bird supporting cast...
Garnett is somehow tired and disinterested in this game, his jumper is off and heès late on rotations, but Bosh for some reason is reverting to passiveness, sorry but hès too scared of Garnett, like he doesnèt know what to do with a wounded animal
Kapono showing off for his future team-mates
We can only hope the Celtics trade for him. The sooner the better
Man Celtics get a lot of respect from refs on inside play. There is atleast 10 close calls in which it could've being shooting fouls. They are allowed to challenge shots other players would get called on
I'm watching the American feed the Celtics announcer said that Joey gives up a little bit of athleticism to scal :|
Ray Allen is unconscious today. We let him get in rhythm and now he will not miss.
I say we lost atleast 1 minute because they are not stopping the clock on our scores. Celtics taking FOREVER to inbound and clock is not being stopped
WOW KG NICE SCREEN Moving screen. Never gets called
Yup. It was covered on a memo from Stern to refs.
We had our chance to get right back in this but Moon thought he was Ray Ray for a sec
It's too bad we couldn't foul out RayRay cus now he's gonna ice the game at the ft line.
Ray Allen is cold blooded
Looking on the bright side, hopefully they learned something from this game & bring it tomorrow night. At least we killed a lot of Bostons confidence/ momentum late in the game....
The Raps have an IQ of 2.3 . Sigh, the whole league knows what to do against Rondo yet we don't do it from the very beginning.
Nobody brought up doc's decision to start scalaweenie at the center spot. By putting scalaweenie out there, either bargs or bosh (whoever was gaurding him) would be positioned out on the perimeter leaving the paint open for rondo to attack. With Perkins in the lineup, rondo has less space to attack. Doc chose scalaweenie as a brilliant strategic move instead of going with powe or big baby.
