Reading these comments, you would think that the Celtics didn't get called for any fouls. They totally ignored the fact that the free throws were basically even with the Magic taking 28 and the Celtics 27, or that the Celtics had Pierce with 5 fouls and Big Baby, Perk, Scal and Pierce all in foul trouble. The officiating wasn't good, but they missed a lot on both sides. It wasn't as one sided as the Magic fans would love to think. Once again it amazes me how quickly fans turn on their own team when they play badly. The last comment, "That's not Glen Davis it's just a fatter Antoine Walker" really cracked me up.
This game is where we make our statement to the league. Crush the C's and close them in 5, we go into Cleveland ready to fight.
Hope we are nice and angry, get a sweet start with Alston and Lee back in the game. Does anyone else feel a scuffle or fight coming on?? Seems it's brewing and I have a feeling Alston and Rondo are gonna get tangled again, Rondo coming off a bad game will probably rebound and shove it in Alston's face....they have a history.
Little worried about Ray Allen clicking this game, think he is 3-15 or something from 3pt land this series, similar to us and Hedo is heating up luckily. Ray may just be getting too old and too tired.
I tend to believe that the winner of this game will win this series. As much as I want to believe we could overcome a loss today, Boston does not lose at home.
The Celtics are going to be extremely motivated, they'll bounce back we need to stay focused and not relax thinking this'll be easy. After we trashed them game 1 they came back and trashed us pretty badly.
Joey Crawford told me the Celtics are going to win
Would be awesome to get a huge lead and play fair so that Joey couldn't make the Celts win.
Without the Refs, the Magic win this one by 12pts..... With the Ref's, the Magic will lose by 12pts.....
Poor officiating already
Yes. Get their bigs in foul trouble. Beautiful
Maybe it isn't such bad officiating. Getting their bigs out early. Big advantage
Perkins plays dirty
Oh man I really love rondo's shots. Brick city all day long
Wow... The refs love the Celtics...
Those TNT announcers are clearly favouring Celtics.
Glad Rondo smiles after it's over. Proud of his flopping abilities.
The refs will do what they can to favor the Celtics, you cant have them go down 3-1
Crawford doesn't give Magic players the light of day when they talk with him... But Rondo can just go up and plead his case like a casual get together
Good call by the refs and second on Perkins. Wow we got a call?, feels weird...
Lol even better, foul on Pierce instead haha... that's 2
We just have to keep attacking the Celtics. It could be very easy to get more fouls on Fat Baby, Jackie Moon, Drama Queen and Perkins.
Glad Courtney is focused on containing Eddie ...it's working
Why did it take us 4 games to figure out we need to guard House?
I love how the crowd just laughs at Scala's foul...like a comedy act haha
AJ is just too strong and big for Rondo.
And slow. Which is good because Rondo is refusing to guard him
Pierce is single handedly goingto get everyone in foul trouble and the refs are going to let it happen.
Its jusk sickening how many calls Pierce gets.
I don't blame the Celtics for all those fouls - I blame the refs for not calling them.
R. Joey Crawford (BOS) 1-1 FG, 6-6 FT, 8pts
Don't worry guys, tomorrow, the NBA will take out a statement that they gave the game to the Celtics, so we can be happy...
I could tell they don't want us to win after that Rondo flop for Dwights 2nd foul then goal tending and Rondo tripping on his own feet, there are 3 refs out there why is there never a reversal on a call?
I like how the Celtics key players are in foul trouble, lets take advantage.
Pierce has gone into House mode
Since when did Big Baby develop an offensive game?
"Looks like he might've tweaked his ankle on that play," says Reggie Miller of Paul Pierce; quick, get a stretcher!
If we lose , it's not gonna be on referees. Such theories suck and are stupid.
When rondo starts shooting good we are in trouble
I want terrible things to happen to Rondo.
When the team is doing well, we praise them for that, when they do bad, we blame the officiating. Cut the crap people.
Big baby was hardly touched and he reacts like that!?.
Rondo with his "trip myself cuz I have no real talent to do anything legit" trick
They have floped and self triped their way to the line and the lead.
There's zero flow on our part and that's why we're down. Refs or not, this game is on us so far.
Boston has wanted it more this whole series, that is why they're the defending champs.
Magic won't get any closer...refs will make sure of that...Joey Crawford is one of the worse officials in the league!
WHAT?? Pierce sucks all he knows how to do is draw cheap fouls... That weren't even a foul
Can someone clarify how many steps you are allowed? I mean in normal people rules, not Bostons special rules
Perkins really makes a big difference for them, its total bull**** that he was able to play tonight
Pierce looks dead tired
Oh my god. Glen Fat Boy Davis. Please don't let that be the winning shot. That doughboy with an emo faux-hawk.
Oh snap, must not let Pierce beat us.
I would just about bet my house that the Celts end up at the FT line here.
Someone please guard Ray Allen throw the cheerleaders at him if possible
Cmon, we can win this game!! Play good defense, no stupid fouls (pietrus I'm talking to you) and someone keep a body on the big fat guy.
And so, 2 bad goaltending calls give the win to the Celtics... Better play the whole game next time, we don't seem to be mentally strong enough to beat the Celtics, the refs, the commissioner and co..
Kendrick Perkins doesn't play. The Magic win NBA are a bunch of ****ing cheaters
Agreed, he made a big difference tonight, we made that run at the end with him on the bench
How embarrassing, we let a **** big man beat us on a buzzer beater. It hurts because we needed this one, I don't think we can win in Boston again.
There were some terrible calls, but we shot 5-27 from 3-point range. That's horrible and deserves to lose. It's amazing this was even close.
Yeah, can you imagine the scoreline on Tuesday when we do actually make the shots despite the refs calls? No wonder Boston were so happy. They have nothing left to give, but we do. We can still win this and I say we win on Tuesday and then close it out at home on Thursday
Its a good thing Orlando is the far superior team or I'd be woried. We still got the series.
Davis>>>>>>>>Dwight Disgusting to let that fat P.O.S beat you.
No complaining about the refs, please. Baby made two clutch shots down the stretch, props to that fat ****.
The thing is we should be blowing these guys out where these little calls won't matter as much. We are a much better team
We must be cursed. Glen Davis hitting 2 go ahead jumpers down the stretch. One of them at the buzzer. Cursed.
It's the curse of the Shaquino
The difference between the Celtics and us is they know how to flop and draw fouls . We don't try that stuff. That is how they get away with inferior talent.
I say we petition the league to make mid-postseason trades. Hedo for the Swine Flu
Wow, I didn't realize Big Baby pushed that little kid after he made the shot that's not right... The parents looked pissed What a total lack of sportsmanship, from Doc Rivers, KG, and the rest of the Celtics bench I hope the Magic saw that and get motivation from it to destroy them
I think Big Baby was rushing over to get the Twinkie that Doc Rivers had. He wanted to make sure the kid did not steal it from him was all..
You have to wonder if the league will say anything about Davis running hamburger slamming that kid. Probably won't. Actually stern probably knocked over a few kids himself. He couldn't be more happy.
I think he was just so happy that he didn't even see the kid...had his elbow been up a little higher he might have bowed the kid right in the back of the head...I don't think he did it on purpose...but I bet if that kid would have shoved fat baby back he would have been detained by the wonderful Orlando arena staff..
The kid was out of bounds. Big baby ran around the ref and out of bounds and hit the kid. I don't see how this would be allowed unless you are running into the stands for a loose ball and falling over a fan.. Maybe the nba will release a statement saying he accidently hit him. If the kid was on the court, it would make sense but he wasn't.
As bad as it looked, people need to see the whole clip. All that happened was Big Baby turned around quickly after his shot celebrating, and had to duck to the side avoiding the ref. He had too much momentum to stop and avoid the kid in time. It definitely was not on purpose. And I doubt the NBA will even address it, if they do it'll be something like, "Big Baby sent the kid an autographed jersey to apologize."
They are the dirtiest team in the NBA.
If we don't close in 6 games, the refs will not let us beat the Celtics in 7. Mark my words. -Rondo no suspension -Alston suspension -Perkins no suspension -Millions of questionable or wrong calls against Magic -Billions of no calls on Celtics defense
We are the better team, but the Celtic clearly have more heart and a tougher mentality..this is going to be tough if we have a chance
That's not Glen Davis it's just a fatter Antoine Walker
