It just always amazes me how quickly fans can turn on their teams. I don't remember seeing Celtics fans being that caustic toward the Celtics even during that 18 game losing streak a couple of years back. Magic fans are just brutal toward their team when they start to lose or play poorly. I just loved the Superman to Superdog pictures. These are definitely more fun to gather when we win!
The C's will seek revenge in game 2. If we continue the trend to shoot 3's all night long we don't stand a chance.
I'm getting greedy, I really want this game badly!!!
Magic win, this time they don't blow a big lead... En route to series sweep!
I predict a win by at least 10 points
There's no reason why we can't play the same way we did in the first half of game 1. I don't think the Celtics can guard any of our players.
I want the Magic to win, but it will definitely be 8 to 5 out on the court tomorrow. Expect Pierce to live at the line and Rondo to try and behead someone. The NBA can't have their beloved Celtics down 2-0.
Boston is gonna come out fast and furious, hopefully magic can match their energy.
Without KG and Powe they are a different team against us; they can't defend us as well nor can they bully us inside like they usually do
I say we go up by about 15 by half, they battle back to maybe 8 or 7, and we CLOSE them out this time.
Salvatore is one of those "egomaniac" refs... He usually sucks, but every now and then, he will surprise you. Eddie Rush is a mediocre ref, which makes him one of the better refs in the NBA. Tom Washington hates us for some unknown reason.
Nowadays, I'm more worried when the magic start hitting their 3s or take a big lead than I am when they're trailing.
Refs allowing a lot of pushing on both ends.
Pierce is such a faker
GET PIERCE THE WHEELCHAIR!
What's the deal with Dwight? He has been a complete non-factor.
Perkins is out playing Howard
Dwight's letting himself be pushed all over the place by Perkins.
Were not going to get the kinda calls they get.
The Magic are playing 8 on 5, like we knew they would be.
Boston won't win this, we're going to lose it
Rondo came to play tonight.
I hate the Celtics.
Big baby was out of bounds when he took the ball from shard.
Rondo's going to have a triple-dip in the first half at this rate. Maybe we're just setting it up to show BOS how you're supposed to come back from 28 down.
If Eddie House is gonna be the guy that lights us up, then we don't deserve to win this
Dwight Howard sucks..
The defensive execution by the Magic is offensive
Now we're standing around pointing fingers.
Horrible basketball being played by Orlando right now. They are making the Celtic scrubs look like gods.
Our defensive rotations suck, House and Perkins are owning JJ/MP and Dwight
Our DPOY has surrendered 14 points to Kendrick Perkins in the half
46-61 at the half. Boston sucks so bad, we should be down 30
I like how whoever defends Eddie house isnt defending him..he always makes those 3's..he has nothing to lose..he cant make 2's.he cant make layups..he can only make 3's..just guard him at the 3 point line and let him drive..
This game makes me believe we are going to loose this series. Who's to say that we don't disappear the rest of this series just like we are doing in this game.
Why can Perkins push D12 every single time and no foul is called?
David Stern writes the refs checks, Stern does not want to see the Magic go up 2-0 in this series.
LOL, Brick House with the miracle shot-put.
There's the difference between wanting the win, and being lazy. In game 1 Rondo tried the same **** and Dwight sent him to the floor, tonight, Dwight is a poster on Rondo's bedroom...
I never thought of Larry Bird as much of a triple-double guy.
I really can't stand rondo right now. He was such a dirty player in the bulls series and got away with it all. Now he's picking us apart. Someone needs to knock him on his a** before this game is over. I can at least be happy about that.
This is the difference: Celtics keep playing, though they have a 24-point advantage on the Magic, they don't settle for jumpers
Now, for the most compelling story tonight "How badly we've been outscored since going up 28 Update: 46 points
Oh great rafer getting suspended
Dwight got away with pushing Ray.
Ok, so Alston will be suspended for next game, since he's not Rajon ROndo
He'll be retroactively ejected, suspended for the remainder of the series, and summarily executed.
The good news about this game is we know the league will be officially rigged should Rafer get suspended.
That's all Eddie House does is talk ****, dude's mouth is open more than KG for **** sake.
I don't mind Alston being suspended, he had to slap Eddie House.
Order everybody to slap House. They can't suspend us all!
Wow talk about no heart, pierce has 3 pts and we are getting killed, let alone that scrub house with 22? We lack a key mentality
I think rafer should get suspended for the slap..u don't ever slap a dude when they don't have the ball..
Well ... He connected and it was intentional. I think he gets one game.
Dwight didn't do anything today and the fact that he refused to send Rondo to the hospital on that dunk is killing my day
Our All Star center is being out played by Perkins.
LOL, ghost foul on Redick and then a ghost T on Redick... Refs are awesome... They don't care how the game is going, they just want to be the highlight
I think my t.v.'s broken or does Eddie House really have 31?
Do you guys think Raefer will be suspended for game 3, that slap seems pretty pedestrian compared to what rondo did last series
OMG Perkins smiled at the nba care commercial!
So it is possible for Perkins to smile ... Though it did look like it hurt him to do so.
I think a suspension for alston would prove that the league is biased as far as suspensions go, Rondo threw someone into the scorers table and got nothing
Eddie house "I know I can get my hands on the ball. I just have a lot of energy on both ends of the floor". I'm actually impressed with his post game he lied without hesitation.
In Alston case I really miss old fellow Dooling, that's a guy who did things right. Get in a fight with Ray Allen and take him out with the suspention, why waste yourself on Eddy House?
"Hello? Oh, okay, I'll tell him. Hey Dwight, Kia Motors just called, they want their DPOY trophy back. Lolz"
But I'll just say this: if Rafer is suspended, the NBA is a joke. I guess Rafer should have just whipped House into the 1st row? Or whacked him across the face?
We are definitely the better team.. Considering how awful we played tonite (except JJ) this is not a very bad loss..
Yeah Rafer probably just cost us a game because I know everyone remembers how this team looked with AJ and Lue. Rondo is going to dominate this series.Perkins and Big Baby outplaying Dwight and Shard? What a joke.
When House gets hot there isn't jack **** you can do. He knows his role and it is to fill it up. He is what JJ should be
I swear to God, Eddie House doesn't miss. I've seen enough of him to say without a doubt that he's a better shooter than anyone else in this league. He doesn't have the prettiest form but he is deadly. If you give him an inch, its going in.
It's a Magic thing. He's a freaking scrub, who has always owned us.
I don't understand why all this talk about Rafer suspended. Rondo took someones face off and then he threw someone into the scorer's table and nothing happened. If Rafer gets suspended we need to somehow petition against the league, someway, cuz that's ridiculous.
You guys think the officals are bad now, wait to see what happens if we play Cleveland. Anyone playing Cleveland or LA this year will have a huge disadvantage against them with the refs and the league. The league won't let a championship be without Kobe and LeBron.
House "I turned around, got hit upside my head, I guess he got tired of getting hit upside his head"
I refuse to even consider bad officiating when the whole team top to bottom cant beat someones scrubs from their bench. For god sakes rashard has got controlled by Jackie moon junior for 6 quarters out of 8. 128 million buck lazy *** cant even dominate a journeyman.
