Once again it is interesting to see fans at the beginning think their team has no chance and by the end they are pretty cocky that their team beat the champs and are starting another 22 game win streak because of it. Also interesting that no matter what the refs do, Rockets fans think they are calling it against them and Tommy is always sure that they are against the Celtics. Last night, I think Tommy was right. They allowed Artest to get away with a lot.
A blowout is otw, but it could be a Boston blowout. Lol
I really don't se us winning this one. We will need to play our best game this year to have a chance to steal this one.
The way the Celtics have been playing, this might be an uglier game than Wiz vs. OKC.
Boston is 18 - 1 at home, and we have zero momentum entering this game. I doubt we have a chance.
Here is the good news. We don't have to be disappointed if we lose. Lol
Funny thing is you know they're going to end up playing a fantastic game tonight and winning in Boston because that's what they do. They tease us with visions of "hey, MAYBE, JUST MAYBE" before they remind us, "OHHHH YEAAAA they really DO suck!". Here's to our victory tonight that will precede the 5 game losing streak to follow.
Right now will be the best time to play the Celts all season, but the Rockets won't have enough to get the win.
Celtics bring their "A" game.... Celts 129 Us 69
Can we just not show up at all. A forfeit is better than a blowout loss.
They were saying on the news tonight that KG may be hurt. Nothing major, but he and other members of the big three may get a day off.
Slaughter fest if KG is on the floor
Even if we lose, as long as we trade T-Mac tomorrow I'll be happy.
Rockets blow Celtics out by at least 10. They suck worse than us these days.
Celtics have been struggling. Rondo has NINE turnovers (career high) last game
Book it. ROX actually come to the office today. Win by 23.
190-63 Celtics That's right 190
Last year, the winning streak ended with Celtics. This year, it starts with Celtics.
Boston maybe struggling, but the Rox have been absolutely putrid.
They are broken down mentally, Rox can't back down and be punked
Rockets show up today and win to get revenge for the Celtics breaking the last happy memory they have.
I HATE PAUL PIERCE
Yao is not gonna get any call even though that Perkins will constantly push him off with TWO ARMS. Gawd I hate Perkins
Artest's BACK WITH A HEALTHY ANKLE. Pierce's gonna go 4-18 and leaves the game with a groin injury.
We don't really have an answer for KG but then, who does?
Celtics are going to come out strong tonight. They lost to the bobcats last night and they want this win. We had a horrible loss last night but that will just bring us down more. They have heart, unfortunatley we do not...
Uh oh, Celtics commentary
I feel sorry for you , you know that old guy is gonna call Artest a thug about 100 times
Man, the refs are good.
I'm already hating the refs.
Artest gonna get thrown out of this game if he isn't careful. He had Pierce in a full nelson.
What the hell is wrong with Artest? He needs to realize there's a TEAM around him.
The Boston announcers and the refs are turible, just turibles so far. I don't know if I can take 48 mins of this.
The Rockets look like they are counting the seconds until the game is over so they can go feel sorry for themselves some more.
This referee crew sucks. They are blind. The guy that missed that foul on Wafer was right there. The refereeing in the league has gotten worse over the years.
they let Artest get away with manhandling pierce so they aren't all bad.
Wow, the Boston commentators are sooo annoying. And so is their PA announcer, especially the way he says "for threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee"
Damn..we're getting killed by their big 3 >_<
I hate how pierce and kg flop all over the freaking place.
Big Baby has range!
D@mn big fat baby!
Yao killed the crowd...I like that. They're pretty easily silenced lol.
Big baby= first guy to bite on Yao's up fake
Please don't let Glen Davis get his first double digit scoring game this season..
Who would win in a eat off? Chucky or big baby?
Tommy Heinsohn in shock & awe at the "wide-open looks" the Celts are getting
Besides the Boston accent, the play-by-play guy for the Celtics isn't too bad. He's giving the Rocks a lot of love right now..Even if they don't deserve it at this point in time.
Ultimate sign of disrespect. Scalabrine is playing.
How I hate the Celtics!!!
Scalabrine bites Ron....Scalabrine 's teeth fell off, Ron feels nothing
If anyone doubts Chuck Hayes defense, just watch those last two times KG tried posting him up.
Damn kg is really one whiny little bitch
I wish KG just got punched by Artest there...
Garnett now knows what it feels like to be guarded by stocky midgets. Welcome to Yao's world.
These refs are complete rubbish. Did you see the replay of artest coming on that 2v1 fast break, that scrub pierce has grabbin on his arm. Absolutely ridiculous
I don't know why garnett insists on posting chuck up. I've seen him try it about 6 or 7 times this season and he hasn't moved chuck any of those times. He then takes a fadeaway with chuck draped on him and misses.
Wow never seen bostons defense this bad. They are really in a slump.
ROFL brooks destroying rondo.
We're def not winning this game, don't fool yourselves. We can't sustain this, prolly end up losing just like we lost to the C's last time in Boston. Good for 3.5 qtr and then Yao will become soft and Ray Allen will hit 3 straight three's. Another moral victory, I guess, but they don't count jack for this team !
Thanks for letting us know ahead of time. Hopefully the rockets hear this so they can just forfeit the game and not expend their energy.
JUST wow @ the Celtics announcer The refs with red glasses ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Hilarious how the color commentary guy is going on and on about the refs wearing "red tinted glasses" when that punk Kevin Garnett sets a moving screen almost every other time the Celtics go down the court.
Anyone else annoyed with these announcers. They have no idea what it is like to have the refs against them. This is the Houston friggin rockets. We are hated by the black and white (refs, not the races). Seriously I want to throw my shoe at the TV.
Pierce , flapping his arms like he got shot
He did. My bad. Knifed.
Ron and Paul will be fighting before the night is over with
That Boston announcer is blind. Artest "yanked" him. He called him back to say ref, good play. What is this fool smoking?
"WATCH HIM YANK THE OFFICIAL...WATCH HIM YANK THE OFFICIAL!" All he does is over exaggerate what Artest does.
Can someone tell me what the F is a tommy point?
Big Baby with the Jordanesque move.
Why is Rafer letting Rhondo drive right by him, it ain't like he has a shot
These ticky tack shooting fouls called in favour of Boston is robbing the Rockets by about 6 pts or more.
LOL @Ron Ron........Allen is like "WTF..." Artest just kills me, nice wrestling move. Boston announcers are pissed, so should they be
To the blubbering idiot who is announcing for the Celtics. When two players are both wrapped up, why should it be called on just one player? O of course golden boy ray Allen is innocent
Celtics are playing the Rockets at full strength. Rockets are playing way short handed and we still beat them. They are becoming the Chumps instead of the champs.
Please becareful of Pierce, that dude is clutch if anyone ever was
Ron Artest can wave goodbye back to Pierce now.
Take that Boston!!
So glad Pierce will walk away as a loser tonight after that taunting of Artest.
I cant believe we stole this one from the Celtics
Rockets minus 3 of 5 starters beating the Champ on their home turf at full strength!!! Priceless
