I'm going to be in NYC tomorrow for this game. Normally, I would be reluctant to find a bar in New York and ask them to turn on the Jazz game. But, considering that we're playing visciously hated Bahstahn, I could prb get away with cheering for Utah in my brown D-Will jersey.
KG and the quest for the Holy Fail.
Let's take down the smack talkin C's and get on a roll!
Nationally televised game against a huge opponent = all but for sure WIN.
To me this is almost (emphasis on that last word) a must win game. Nows the time to get hot, and wins over the two leading teams in the NBA within the space of a week and a half would be a phenomenal statement by an 80% recuperated Jazz team. Look for Deron to have a huge game.
Williams, Rondo will be a dangerous matchup. Rondo is a good defender, and doesn't have to do much else than specialize on stopping Williams.
Well, we have a days rest. The Celtics haven't played since the all-star break. Maybe they will be rusty...or well rested? If okur is back we have a punchers chance.
I look forward to seeing DWill exact his revenge on Rondo for the game @ Boston.
In Boston we got rondo'd. it's time for some payback!
This classic Rivalry produced probably the best film of the 90's, and maybe the Best Basketball film of all time.
That's the greatest movie ever btw, its the only time we ever win anything.
If that punk KG messes up with Memo cuz he's a white Euro, he'll be in a hell of a trouble!
I want to see some Jazzman taunt right at KG.
(from a Laker fan) Even though you guys beat us in the last outing we are pulling for you guys tonight. Don't CHOKE! Play with that same fire you guys did against us & the Celtics will wilt under pressure!
I don't know how I feel about the support we're getting from these Laker fans. It's kind of like having your boss giving you a back rub while you make love to the love of your life.
LOL at the Jazz...we suck bad right now. Everyones scared to take it inside.
Ive never seen so many "clean" blocks in one quarter.
Shooting less than 20%, pathetic
Celtics are smothering us
OUr guys got blocked a few times, and now everyone is SCARED to take the ball inside.
AK cant get by Big Baby? Really?
OMG Scalibriene for MVP.
WTF does Deron have to do for a call?
Change his last name to Paul?
Well we survived at half we are down just 1. This is the best defensive team we've faced this year. Perkins is really a great defender inside, we haven't had many points in the paint. So we'll have to work extra hard on the offensive side if we are to win this game.
I'm calling it.. KG torn Achilles tendon... Sucks for him, I like KG a lot, but that thing went on the jump and that's a strong indicator for that injury. Gone for the year.
Or it could be a bad cramp. Who knows. I hope for him its not serious, I hope for us its enough to keep him out of the 2nd half.
Jazz this close when only shooting mid 20%. Free throws keeping jazz in the game.
Refs being VERY kind to the Jazz tonight. Celtics getting called for a lot of fantom fouls wile Jazz getting away with a lot
If KG doesn't come back in the 2nd half, we might have a shot at this.
Perkins is the one I wish was out...he is killing memo.
As much as I like KG, I hate Paul Pierce. So cocky, even though he did absolutely nothing in Boston until KG and Allen showed up on white horses.
Umm I don't like Pierce much either but 7 games in the east finals with Pig Walker as your sidekick is something. You could say the same about Allen and Garnett too.
Man we are getting some crazy calls right now...even I will admit that.
If we win this game tonight we need to send the refs a thank you note.
We are dodging a bullet. There has been some nocalls left and right.
There were some questionable no calls in our favor, but I don't give a ****. A win is a win.
We got lucky. Losing Garnett was HUGE. I hope that dude is okay. That would be a tragedy and rob us of excellent Eastern Conference playoffs. We also got some calls against this team for whatever reason against this team.
I hate to admit it, but the refs gave us this game. As bad as we shot, they kept us in it.
Hey, sometimes you get calls and sometimes you don't. We won and that is all that counts. If the Celtics are as good as they think they are, they could overcome a few bad calls. But they aren't that good. waaaaaay over hyped.
