The Celts were robbed of the win today vs LA. Shocking officiating.
I'm not too confident that we pick up the W on this one, it would be nice but the C's are in great form, despite today's result. Allen's shot is falling and Eddie House is absolutely on fire as of late. But our Big 3 (+ Fin) will have had four or five days off between games, which always helps a bunch of geriatrics like us. I'd love to match up with these guys in the Finals, TD vs KG on the big stage would be awesome.
Huge measuring stick for the spurs they'll be rested and ready to go
Let's see, it is a Sunday afternoon, nationally televised game. I wish I could be proved wrong but Spurs have a track record of stinking it up during these games.
Tim Duncan will not allow his Spurs to lose this game. Bank on that.
I know they will win this. I know Pop has them ready mentally and physically to win this one....Spurs will win this one by playing better D and rebounding and staying focused for the whole 48 min of hell....It is not going to be an easy task, but Spurs pull out and win this.
Coming from a Laker fan here... This Spurs-Celts game reminds of is how much I despise the Celtics. I NEVER root for the Spurs.. And today I'm rooting for the Spurs almost as hard as I root for the Lakers. Damn, Go Spurs.
It was a travesty that fluke shots awarded KG an NBA champion. What message are we sending to our beloved children about what it takes to be a champion when a classless, trash talking, cheap shoting, mentally unstable, cuckold is raising the trophy?
Normaly this would be just a regular season game from the Spurs side. This one won't Let's show them their place.
I always expect the best out of the players, but Tony Parker BETTER bring his A+ game after calling Rondo overrated..
And the Kobe-lebron slobfest continues...
Rondo is so damn overrated.
I wanted JVG and Marc Jackson
They always do the Laker games. I knew right away they were gonna call the Laker game, because, well, LA is loved
Those refs sure are hosing the spurs.
RONDO MADE A JUMPER!!!!
What's the O/U on KG chest pounds today?
WTF is up with Rondo and his shoe? He's lost his shoe like 3 times this year already
Why is it so quiet in the Boston arena?
Ray Allen has been the C's best player this year...it's not even close
I notice this every game the Celtics play in, they are given atleast one or two stretches each game where they are allowed to play super physical on both ends without drawing any fouls on themselves
Gotta feeling, after one qtr, that this could be an instant classic, Spurs winning by a nose, of course.
I hope Pop mentions how the C's run the moving screen offense better than any team in the league! We're in for a long game today I like how many pushes in the back they get away with while crashing the boards too
Bowen please kick Allen
The C's are moving on screens, pushing the Spurs in the back on plays, etc. They get away with ALOT
Spurs fans griping that the opponent plays too physical on defense? My how times have changed.
Bowen usually owns Ray Allen, so this is puzzling, unless Pop doesn't want to reveal his strategy if we meet them in the finals..
The announcers already sound like Celtic groupies
I hate Eddie House..
I wonder how many fouls Pierce draws are actually fouls..you hear this complaint a lot by fans vs. Boston..he just throws his body into whoever is guarding and gets away with it..
Bonner the Celtics killer!
Bonner should play in his home area more often..
How did they miss that travel? That was 3 huge steps Rhondo took. Parker could drive past anyone also given 3 steps.
Class move by the announcers not mentioning how the spurs tanked a season to pick up the Duncan pick
it's official..the Spurs need to fly in Bonner's family every game, so he can play like this more often..
Glad Bonner is having a good afternoon game against the C's after that bad performance against the Lakers
Celtics seem about 5 steps faster than the Spurs on O...even oldster Pierce. Weird.
I hate when they bring up the draft BS, the C's got a good player in Billups and its not our fault they couldn't make that work, look at him now.
Will the announcers shut up with the Boston love, and how they do everything better than the spurs
Rivers good defensive team allowing 60 points in a half. Hmmmmmmm
Hill is going to own Rondo in the next couple of years.
Can anyone figure out why we keep letting other teams shoot 50%? I mean, the defense does not look that bad, but they are always hitting shots. You even heard the huddle for the Celtics: "they can't stop us from scoring". Has it come to that?
Rivers was talking shit in that timeout. Completely disrespecting the Spurs. Talking like the Spurs are a scrub team.
(from Laker fan) Don't worry guys. Whenever the Lakers beat the Celtics, the C's usually go on a 6 or 7 game losing streak. You can thank us later...
So the Universe revolves around the Lakers?
Why wouldn't they have confidence, they're the defending champs..
And I still say it's a bought championship
If the spurs cant win this at least injure someone from the Celtics
Airball Looks like Matt Bonner remembered that he's Matt Bonner.
Why does Perkins get to ram his forearm/elbow into his defender without a call? I'm sorry, did I miss the point when he became a superstar and therefore gets superstar treatment?
I hate how pierce uses his fat to push off people
Tony Parker has really disappointed me..he calls Rondo overrated, and then he dissapears vs. Boston.
Pierce gets away with offensive fouls on multiple trips down the lane. Perkins still getting away with murder. Still, Spurs only down by 1 even with the refs in the's C's pockets.
I don't know, the Spurs have gotten a lot of calls their way that were questionable at best. It isn't just the Celtics getting away with stuff. Refs are just bad. Not in anyones pockets
All Celtics are doing is running down as fast as they can off a missed shot and giving it to garnet, like seriously they are rushing every single shot and relying off adreneline right now. They use like 8 secs off the shot clock everytime.
They call Bowen for kicking his leg out on a 3, lol, come on refs He wasn't hurt was he? No harm no foul.
It's like the Spurs have two opponents every night - the opposing team and the NBA refs.
Tony is playing an even game with Rondo..that should never happen..
The Celts have a horrible bench.. The more the advantage taken against these puppies, the easier it is .. To go against the Big Three of the Celts.
Typical dirty Celtics trash. Hill was owning on defense so they chop him down. Should be a flagrant on fat baby
If that was Rondo, it would have been a flagrant 2 against one of our guys..
That should be prosecuted as an assault.
It was not dirty at all. If Hill was not hurt on the play, no one would say anything.
Man, KG is a dirty player.
KG with 2 clutch j's and a steal. Awesome.
Great game ! Now we are true contender ! C`s beated at home by 2 best Western Teams !
No big deal for Celtics. They had a tough stretch and have ups and downs. They are still the class of the East IMO.
The Lakers will go as far as Kobe takes them but they are going to hit a bad patch too. If we keep improving on D and stay healthy, we'll have a shot at catching them for 1 seed.
LOL, the last 2 Champions in the league and the Lakers vs Cleveland gets prime time coverage because of Kobe and Lebron..the Last 2 losers. Makes sense.
Great win. Matt Bonner is the next David Robinson, with range.
is there a clutcher team in this soft ass league? damn all we need is 50 wins, and keep the finals games within 3 at the end. and then its money. i mean damn look at the finals favorites, boston and la. next to no expirience off the bench. almost no clutch shooting(none for the lakers). ill go ahead and count the lakers out right now. kobe and fish. all the expirience they have. thats it. celts have eddie, paul, ray and kg. spurs? roger mason jr, bruce bowen, kurt thomas, tim duncan, manu, tony, finley, how many big shots have they made between them. damn.
Am I the only one that felt we got lucky in this win? Bonner needs 23 points. Last 2 and a half minutes we kept having ZERO rotation on KG after the pick n roll and he was getting free shots. Mason clutch 3 along with Bonner somehow getting KG off his feet and then rattles in the free throw line shot. Man even KG busted a 3 after house added one. I kind of got the feeling we got left off the hook on this one and really lucked out on Allen having that ball kind of slip off his hands.
