The Clippers win out in LA may have given Clips' fans some hope for this one but most were realistic in knowing that the Celtics wouldn't lose this one. It must be tough being a Clippers fan. At least when the Celtics went through their 22 years of futility they had their history to fall back on. Here are the best comments from around the Clippers' boards.
We only lost yesterday at Toronto because we got caught looking ahead to today's game against our new rivals, the Celtics.
Boston is looking to kill us after what we did to them last time...
Please for once! Clippers need to play seriously....
My thoughts exactly. Boston has been on a bit of a slide and I'm sure they want revenge on us. They do have KG back now so if we play our best we will be in this game. It really depends on what kind of team our team wants to be tonight.
This will be worse than a double root canal Worse than feeling the pain from the movie SAW Worse than the papercut scene from the movie Jack Ass all combined!!!
This will be the testament of pride for one self, as well as the fans.
Does anyone want to go out on a limb and guess which bench scrub will have the game of his/her life tonight? A) Perkins B) Big Baby Davis C) Leon Powe D) Eddie House E) Marbury F) Scalabrine
Marbury will probably have the game of his life (seeing as we let all the scrub PG's have their way with us) and he'll be like "see I'm still awesome" and then never have a game like that again......until he faces us again.
Ill only watch this one because I hate the city of Boston and their overblown egos so much. Talk about a bandwagon city. And talk about BUYING a championship.
Don't think they bought their title I believe they earned their title, there are some C fans that jumped on board but at the same time their was a base of C's fans that were in the same boat we are in and those fans still stood strong to this day.
The Clippers are definitely going to get chewed up and spit out of TD Banknorth Garden…
I felt the same way about the Clips chances the first game against the Celtics and the game against the Cavaliers but they showed a LOT more fight and won one (but should have won both). Clips need these wins to help make it easier for them to sleep after the season is over…
Don't worry we got this game
I'm calling this one again. WE WIN at the Gaaahden!
There is a lot of optimism. KG is back and Big Baby is playing out of his mind. This doesn’t bold well for the clips
The chances of the Clippers winning this one is < 0.01%
Accuscore projections Boston 94% Favorite - Clippers 06% Underdog.
How'd the Clips manage 6 percent?
This will not end well for the Celtics. Clips got this.
Least we know we have a championship contender bench.
Garnett is just a loud mouthed fool. I never thought I could hate any player more than Kobe and then Garnett goes to the Celtics and plays the fool. He needs to just shut the hell up and play the damn game. I wish someone would just knock the fool out.
A few years ago he also tried to pick a fight with Kaman. Kaman and Brand were killing him and Garnett took exception to it late one game and went after Kaman. Going after Kaman is like picking on the handicap kid in school.
Are my eyes deceiving me? Are we actually up 37-36 in the second quarter with 4:50 to go
Just when I get fed up with them they suck me right back in. The life of a Clippers fan.
Perkins sets another hard pick, this time on Collins... Punk
Perkins is a dirty player
Their defensive coach is better than our head coach
Pelase can we lose this game with dignity?
Clips end the game on 11-2 run Which accomplished nothing except… that they beat the spread (which was 15.) Way to go fellas.
