KG is out we do have a chance to win, it's not going to be easy but we can do it.
Guys we are playing at home and C's have no KG. We don't have Amare but this is our best chance to get the C's on our own court.
Without KG their interior defence should be vulnerable and we need to rebound hard. If we can't beat a front court with Scalabrine and Perkins at the 4 and 5 there is something wrong. I don't think Boston has enough points in them to outgun the Suns.
Boston is also old compared to the Suns so we just need to push the tempo hard and score efficiently. If we do that we will win the game.
Yeah the only way to win from here on out is to use small ball, hopefully the C's get tired by the 3rd quarter.
Slow down Ray-Ray, he always goes off on us...
I met Rondo and Ray Allen yesterday, real classy guys (sorry guys but Ray Allen is one of my top 3 favorite players in the league) I talked to them about the new Suns style of play and asked what they thought of it, Rondo said he thinks he is ready for the challenge and Ray said said he's glad we are running again but also said he loves the US Airways three point line haha.
I don't expect the Stoudemire-less Suns to beat the Garnet-less Celtics. I just hope they can use this as an educational experience to come up with different plays they can use against other teams. If it turns out Boston is blowing them away, I would like the Suns to let the starters sit and play the bench instead. A loss is a loss. It won't matter if it's by 20 points or 40 points. Save the legs for games they can win- may be Lakers at home is still do-able.
I have the audacity of hope. Let's see what Gentry's SSOL can do against this team. Besides, we owe them. Big time.
Good test for the Amare-less Suns against a very good team, albeit without their best defensive player. Who cares!? A win is a win! I believe the Suns can beat the Celtics.
The refs are horrible right now.
Are they not calling moving screens in this league anymore??? Glen baby Davis just put a bear hug on JRICH
HORRIBLE CALL, and I hate this crap can we get unbiased commentating? Holy JEEZ come on now
Horrible Defence by Suns
Boston shoots 80% in the quarter ?????? Yes...the 'old suns' are back.
Refs are retarded. Suns fans should throw bottles at them
We can't buy a call here. Probably b/c Sarver's too cheap.
Wow the suns miss those phantom calls that Boston are getting now a days. Rondo falls on the ground for a loose ball and no one causes him to fall yet a foul...
Going to be a run away before long simply because 1. Refs do not recognize the suns going for loose balls as being defense. And of course when you listen to the announcers who continue to say theres NO KG and Boston is up. What about theres no Amare?
Wow Suns ae losing to the Celtics that's embarrassing. They won't make the playoffs if they lose this game.
Anyone surprised that Rondo is torching us? ....I'm not..... He's also rebounding better than anyone on our team.... Standing tall at 6'1''
Can anyone believe that we gave this kid up? Why? Why? Why?
Hopefully Sarver is paying attention, and realizing that you shouldn't sell draft picks.
Yikes...we look garbage. Wish we had a chance to draft this Rondo kid
That was not even that good of a flop from big baby.
Ref's completely took the Suns out of the game.
That was the worst officiated half I have seen in a long time
This is how it goes against the Celts and the lakers. Stern has set the refs straight about who he wants I The finals.
We need to make some stops at defense. And get the ball down low to shaq, get Davis and Perkins outta game.
Wow....Offciating has been an absolute Joke out there. I'm pretty sure Eric Lewis is Partially blind in one eye...
We are turning the ball over a lot but this is squarely on the referees dictating the pace. We are not good in a half court set. That is where we turned the ball over under Porter. I know Gentry does not want to play this pound to shaq half court garbage, but with the way the refs are dictating the pace and digging us a grave there is no other solution.
The refs are not doing this on accident. They are actually very skilled. They just have an agenda and that agenda is NOT to make correct calls. It is to dictate tempo, work the spread, and pay homage to a higher rating draw under the instruction of Furor Stern
We are called for blocking fouls on the defensive end, while the C's do the same thing and we're called for a charge.
The Celtics go over the back on offensive boards almost everytime...The one play Barnes had I believe Powe Trapped uner the basket and Poe just jumps on his back to try to get the board.
We're getting schooled. Can Nash at least put a hand in Rondo's face? He's getting smoked every time. I'd like to see Shaq with a hard foul on him to make him think twice about coming back in the lane.
There is no way the Suns can win the way it's being officiated. They are calling fouls on the Suns almost every play, and none against the Celts. How can they expect the players to stay calm when they are being robbed?
Man, you can't breath close to a Celtic, but they grab like it was judo.
We are not lsoing this game because of the refs.... We are just not making shots, while the Celts just do what they want
The Celts don't really look that great, do they? Rondo is having the shooting day of his life but really, they're not even close to unbeatable. We get some decent calls and start hitting, we're okay. And if the refs have a serious accident at halftime, that wouldn't hurt
Ray Allen has a pocket ful of Daggers
I would put Nash on Brian Scalbrine. Yea it's a PG guarding a PF, but if the Celtcis want to run their offense through SCAL...Be my guest.
Are the refs really calling BS calls? Or we are just bitching because we're getting spanked?
We're bitching because we're getting spanked.
Come on. The Cletics are playing great, and we can't defend a chair, but when we try the refs won't allow it either.
The refs have been very poor and inconsistent at best. I hate how teams with a "physical" or "defensive" reputation get away with playing one way, while a "finesse" team like us can't touch anybody.
Freaking Scalabrine is scoring on us. Scalabrine! Brutal.
Rondo owns us.....
Kind of weird how Rondo is the one beating us when we could have had him. Why oh why did we give this kid up? He'd be our starter now with Nash backing him up.
Was a good first 6 minutes of the game
And now we see what was happily neglected during the 3 big wins Yes, they scored 140 each night But how many points did they give up?
Who cares how many they score as long as we score more?
