It was interesting to see that right from the beginning the Magic fans saw that with Bavetta as one of the refs they had a chance to win this game and sure enough, 31 free throws later they won it. Nevertheless there was still a lot of complaints about the refs even though they shot almost 3 times as many free throws as the Celtics. Loved all the Hedo bashing and then he hits the biggest shot of the game for them. Also love the fact that they are seeing the value of Kendrick Perkins. Magic fans seemed pretty confident at the end that they will win game 7. Funny what winning a game will do for some fans.
I really don't know if we have it in us. I don't like what happened with Dwight and SVG and Lewis. I think our guys know now just to feed Dwight, let's see if it works.
We better win tonight or things are going to get really ugly. The team could very well fragment if we lose UNLESS Dwight gets his touches and does poorly. A comfortable win tonight with no fourth quarter meltdown will go a long way towards quieting things down.
Bavetta/Crawford/Davis......the Magic have a good shot tonight............
Hopefully Bavetta can keep Crawford in check, if he does we win. Yeah the game will be a half hour longer, but it'll be worth it
The combination of Rashard and Hedo is killing us. Rashard can't defend Davis. He is too small, too slow.
After re-watching our last 5 minute collapse again, I would make 1 point only. We HAVE to get in Big Baby's face when he's shooting that mid-range jumper.
Wow half of the guys on PTI just sided with the magic
I am so sick of Big Baby's face. And his haircut
We go to Dwight every time down the floor... We lose: 189 - 23.
You actually think Dwight would get 23 against Perkins? Hey man, maybe Mikki Moore, but Perkins?
145 to 10. Bill Walker scores 50 in his playoff debut.
If the scoreboard doesn't look like this before the 3rd Magic: 80 Celtics: 50 Then we lose.
If Bavetta is ref-ing, then it's going 7 because "It would be good for the NBA."
We win, but I'm beyond really caring at this point. We'll lose heavily in game 7
I don't even want us to have a lead tonight...we will just blow it Close game with us scoring the last shot in the end
Boston has done the Scalabrine flop play a few times in this series. Suddenly they have a possession or two that Scalabrine is guarding Dwight and the second Dwight makes his move he hits the deck.
That foul is baffling
Yeah well at least theyre being fair tonite
You saw Perkins push Rashard in the back? NO foul..wow.
All of their big men do that to ours
The Celts get away with too much..I think our guys need to start acting out like they do on a push or a weak shove..Maybe we will get the call.
The last thing I want to see is our guys flopping.
That's becuz our players aren't a bunch of sell out p****** who think theyre high and mighty becuz that's how they play. I would rather not follow the pathetic
Its painful to watch them play this bad, knowing how much better they are than Boston
Bavetta just watched Pierce and Perkins shove Dwight in back so Celtics could get rebound. No call
Gotta love the ref going to pat Rondo on the back. "It's ok, I'm still on your side, just had to call that one." I love how Perkins can push and hold whoever he wants but on the other end you can't graze him without it being a foul.
ESPN shows that they've got the Lakers vs the Magic coming up.. Didn't know the Finals started right after this game..
Pietrus is dumb as rocks
Lewis has had some SWEET moves, but he's gotta keep a better eye on Scal, because they're probably going point for point right now, which nullifies anything he's bringing.
Why is Perkins allowed to foul Dwight every possession on both ends with no call? Other than the NBA wanting Boston to advance. Any other reason?
Clifford Ray is the MVP of that team, goodness.
Perkins owns Dwight....I don't get it
Rashard has 8 minutes to abuse Scalabrine in the post or else I will forever label him a loser who got worked by some chump.
I've seen more Celtics players dive on the floor for loose balls in this single game than any magic players in this entire series.
Magic are getting beat by a bunch of scrubs
Boston looking for contact Orlando avoiding it. Boston fighting for all the loose balls.
Perkins has done a good job on Howard this whole series man, very strong player.
Scalabrine is showing more energy than anyone on the magic.
Perkins is so strong its so tough to get any leverage.
Perk fouls in the back literally every possession. If there's an offensive rebound to be had, he will push as hard as he can in whoever he can find's back. It has not been called yet.
That was the worst foul call ever, no call on Perkins but give it to Allen after the hack
We've guarded Scalabrine so badly, I almost want to take my chances with baby.
Perkins has massively outplayed Dwight. He should be embarrassed.
Its ridiculous how much the refs are helping the Celtics
I was actually thinking the opposite, for this game only.
AHAHAHA Alston kissing the refs head.
There is something wrong when Rondo has more rebounds than Dwight
$hard is the softest 6ft10 man I have ever seen.
I feel it is the best officiated game of these series.. If the refs were favoring the Celtics as usual, we would be down 20.
Paul with push #99001.
R u guys sure that u wanna go to a 7th game where you will watch the refs handing the game to the greenies? Maybe we should just quit now
I don't care if we get crushed by 60 points, I want to go back to Boston.
How there wasn't a foul on that Lewis drive and when Davis almost murdered alston I will never ever know
These refs. Wow...stern at least make it a little less obvious u are stuffing cash in their pockets..
Man Rondo is going to be dangerous if he can ever develops an outside shot. Hopefully he goes to the West for some reason
I wish we had a pierce
I'd rather give the ball to Hellen Keller then Hedo at this point
I hope Hedo's getting a big fat check from Boston.
Blocked by veal
Scalabrini is a defensive MONSTER!
Retire, Rashard. You just got rejected by Scalabrine. Just retire.
Paul makes push #32938298.
I hate the dirty Celtics.
Omg Hedo has hit a shot and oddly enough I got the chills
Brick House showing his true IQ, 'Shard to the line.
Hedo takes some of the best horrible shots that I've ever seen.
I don't know why, but two nights ago I was on perfect despair. Right now I'm 100% sure we're gonna take game 7 in the Garden.
Paul with push #2898298292.
Great win for the team, finally we got one grinding win!! Refs were not too bad tonight, but I fear for Sunday on ABC.
After all the complaining, we shot 31 free throws to 13 for them. I guess the refs wanted to extend the series after all. We got more help then they did.
Any explanation at all why Ray Allen has been awful this series?
Anyone here know if Perkins speaks Klingonese?
We would have the full attention of the sporting world if win game 7 in Boston, then knock off Cleveland game 1 two days later.
Surely they're bound to lose a game 7 eventually. They've won, what, 4 game 7s in a row with this current team?
32-0 after being up 3-2 and allowing a game 7. It has to end sometime. It'll be Sunday.
Ray Allen 2-11 from the field 0-7 from 3...I hope he brings that performance with him to Boston
