These are definitely more fun to do when we win. The majority of posts were complaining about Vince Carter taking 29 of the 70 Magic shots. Ugly game on both sides.
Time to step up against the best team of the East. Go Magic!
I'm not counting on Dwight at all tonight, Vince has to be big same with Shard. Plus we need big bench play.
If current foul treatment of Dwight persists, we're gonna be in a lot of trouble. I wouldn't be shocked if Perkins got him in foul trouble, and there's something seriously wrong with that.
God knows this game should not be lost. Otherwise everybody will hit the panic button, and there will be 10 trade threads for every player. Maybe not for Foyle
We lose. Sheed & Perk guarding D12 = ?
Don't forget Shard vs. KG = yuck...
Useless fact: Vince Carter hasn't won against the Celtics in 4 seasons...
I have a feeling Boston will come out this time and get their revenge on us for knocking them out of the playoffs. That's ok though, let's get our loss to Boston out of the way now.
I'm not worried about Pierce anyway. The real question is: who the hell is gonna guard House and Scalabrini?
Real question is how is Dwight gonna deal with sheed and Perkins
Boston's most important pieces such as Sheed, Garnett, Allen, and Pierce are aging more than focusing on the average team age.Outside of Vince our primary pieces are relativley young when compared to Boston.
The NBA is about matchups and we don't match up well vs Boston. This team as built will struggle vs Boston, LA, and SA. Rasheed Wallace will cause the same problems he did with Detroit.
I hate to say it, but we lose tonight. They're gonna want it more than we do!
Heart says magic
Head says Celtics
Stomach says breakfast
This game depends on which Magic team decides to show up tonight. We know that we can put up points but can we defend them. I hoping for a defensive game so a low scoring game. But I think this might be the game of the season so far and might go into overtime.
If Indiana and Atlanta can beat em we can too
I want this win badly. It's not just any game, it's Magic pride. The Celtics fans have been ragging on about KG's absence, it's time to prove them wrong.
Orlando by 10. I think the C's are all hype
There will be foul trouble for Howard. You think Sterns boys are going to let Dwight dominate the C's ? The offensive juggernaut Perkins will get calls his way all night..watch.
If our teams comes out hungry we'll win. I think the 1st quarter will be very important.
I think it'll come down to bench play and Orlando's bench >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Bostons bench easily
The Celtics are garbage. Magic win by 30.
Dwight needs to get himself outside the circle so that he doesn't pick up a lot of fouls when Rondo and Pierce start throwing themselves into him.
The key to the game is Pierce. Not his play, his flopping. I can guarantee you that he will drive to the basket and flop to foul Dwight out. It's up to the refs as to whether or not they allow that.
It should be obvious to any ref that all Pierce has left is to draw fake fouls and that, he continually does, so its their first team against our second. And if the refs allow them to do it, then we have to drive to the basket and flop on them.
Whats the over under that Rondo hits the floor like a sack of potatoes tonight?
You know even before Rondo started becoming a wannabe bad boy. Punching out Brad Miller throwing Heinrich into a score table. Grabbing Chris Paul and trying to get him to fight. I still wanted to punch him. He's just got one of those annoying "I want to punch this guy in the face" faces. I can take satisfaction knowing JWILL will knock Rondo out if he try's anything tonight. I predict a fight!
I hope we win tonight and shut these excuse filled team up in their own building.
Oh how I havent missed Pierce and his retarded head fakes
They are trying to looking for Perkins early to get Howard in foul trouble.
But the refs are playing fair right now... Even a little to our side...
Garnett: 0-5 (he must be looking at his watch now)
Garnett and Perkins are getting away with too much physicality on Howard
Rondo has zero offensive capabilities.
Marquis looks higher than the USS Enterprise.
Every time Eddie shoots a 3 I hold my breath
The refs are keeping us in this+ our bench is sucking.
God AJ has no business playing in the NBA...I always try to give him the benefit of the doubt..but he's so goofy and unnatural when he plays...he's keeping the Celtics in the game
More freethrows..Pierce is such a actress.
If the refs were movie critics they'll say two thumbs up to a movie like killer Clowns..They fall for bad acting all the time.
Someone needs to throw Paul Pierce a soccer ball. He flops on every single play.
Well we are pretty much only capable of playing 1 quarter well...then we look like tards offensively and defensively...awesome
Why do the refs allow them to be physical but if we do anything we are automatically in trouble.
Boston the most complaining team in the league j van gundy great call
They do complain like crazy..Pierce always looks like hes going to cry.
Him, lebron, and Kobe should do commercials for Kleenex
Refs are sure helping Boston now....
The refs are screwing us. Its obvious. It has been a different set of calls since the Second quarter.
This is just frustrating BC a lot of bostons run could've been prevented if we don't leave our backups in for so long...when aj starts playing more retarded than usual, it's time to sit on the bench and pop some geritol
What really worries me is that I KNOW Boston has the ability to come back from a 16 point deficit. But if the roles were reversed, and we were down 16, in all honesty, we would most likely succumb to a blowout loss...
Fouls are 13 to 11 so its a pretty evenly called game so far.
Is there H1N1 in the paint? What the hell is up with these long twos?
Lol KG is falling apart, see him hobbling after that play where he sort of fell and lost balanced?
Refs letting the Celts back in it...
The refs have to cover the spread!
Fouls dead even at 17 each.
We can learn from PP too. Just lean into KG and stick your figures into his eyes
Lol @ scalabrine...I heard the team rubs his head before games for "good luck"
Perkins is always angry
Paul Pierce just does that stupid head fake and rams into someone to get a foul, it's just ridiculous...
WOW Kg with 40,000 minutes played
KG's body will explode in the second half. No one plays good bball after 40,000 minutes.
Ewing drawing up plays on the bench looks like he's cheating off the dude next to him.
Hahha, Scalabrine a "fan favorite." AKA: The only white guy on the team...
There we go, the lead was too big for the refs to handle... Now they're doing their game...
Notice all the contact Pierce had on Rashard there, and somehow, we end up "giving" an offensive foul.
Scalabrine has gotta be the most "bad body" dude in the league.
Scalabrine looks like he should be sitting on some ratty old couch, wearing a wifebeater and drinking a six pack
Sheed is really helping us out there lol.
We're lucky the guy has been bricking all over the place. I wouldn't know what to say if those shots were actually falling.
If Carter is this kind of rollercoaster all year I will need a pacemaker
I hate Boston so much. ****.
I hope we lose. We have no business winning this game. We've played terrible basketball for over half the game.
I like how the Boston crowd boos on that call when Lewis did basically what pierce does on every possession.
I love beating the Celtics. They are a bunch of punks and it's always great...ESP when big fat baby Davis isnt out there running kids over.
If we win it's because Boston is terrible. Not because were good, and I think we need to consider resting Vince for a couple weeks. Cause he looks tired.
Defense won this game
I hate that little "I got fouled" head bob everytime Pierce drives.
KG isn't anywhere near what he once was. The numbers don't lie.
The Celtics loss that game on their own. It was no way we should have won this game. They was just missing a lot of wide open shots. Yeah Vince won the game, I guess. Hell he took every dang shot. What you expect.
What did I told.. We Will Win this, And We Did!
Good Game!! We are the 09/10 champions !
Regardless of how bad we played, this was a good win...Coming away from tonight I am positive that Boston is not better than us, if anything we are on the same level and we will have to duke it out in the playoffs...They missed some open shots, so did we, both teams played bad, and both teams played pretty good D.
The Christmas day game vs Boston is going to be AWESOME.....
