Boston vs grizzlies tonight on sportsouth. If Grizzlies have another game like vs. Cleveland then we will win. Boston on a 10 game streak will likely make it to playoffs. Lets just hope will meet them there in the championship!
I think we get blown out, but hopefully we can see Rudy put KG on a poster.
Why do fans have such animosity towards KG? I don't understand it. To me he represents the ultimate leader in basketball. He plays every game with total passion and pride. It seems very rare in some sports. Football they only play a few games each year in NFL so they are very intense and completely invested in every play of every game (usually).
So what is all the hate of KG?
I got into arguments a lot about it. I think he is one of the most inspiring players of all NBA. He is right up there with Pau Gasol to me, if not higher. What is the issue? What has he done like Shaq feuding with Kobe, like Lebrandon James doing dances in front of the losing team? Or lowered his integrity by asking for a trade from Minnesota? I thought he gave his all to them to the end.
Sorry buddy but I'm in the bandwagon of KG haters. I don't know why. In the early days in the Wolves I just didn't like how he played. When he got the respect of the league he lost the respect to the league. He started to intimidate just the young players, push them. I have a good example in that great night when Pau Gasol dunked on his face in his rookie or sophomore year. IS that kind of player you might love if he is in your team but since I also support lakers...
I Don't know about this one I hope we can win
The biggest thing that you have to remember against Boston, IMO...you have to pick up the pace and get a lot of buckets in transition. Get their older guys on their heels and you have a chance at a victory.
I hope to see very little green at the game
Come on Boston, bring you worst!!!
This game we have no chance in hell. Games like this is the reason why we should be beating teams that we are better than like the Kings, Clippers, GSW, Bucks. OKC instead of choking the games away.. Long night Boston by 20.
I think we have a SMALL chance, but don't get your hopes set too high. Don't forget, this is the BEST team in the league, and they have only lost a single road game this entire year. I say a win here is going to be very difficult.
Best team in the NBA on the second night of a back to back? Hope we keep it close. At least we are at home.
The Celtics are a tough match up. KG is still a beast. Ray Allen is a killer. Rondo is better than westbrook.
Then there is Paul Pierce.
And Kendrick Perkins.
This is going to be a tough game
If we win, I will call it one of the greatest Grizz victories in franchise history.
We are playing the Celtics, not the Lakers!!! Playing the 5th best team in the league, AT BEST.
Name the 4 teams better than them.
7 game series, I am taking: Lakers, Nuggets, Cavs, and Hawks over them. Maybe others too, depending on which old *** on the Celtics is hurt a the time.
The Cavs? Really? The Hawks are still too young to take down a veteran Celtics team in a 7 game series. Boston has already proven that they can beat the Lakers in the finals with a healthy team.
Barring injuries, the Celtics are the best in the East, no doubt. And until the Lakers prove that they can beat them, I'm saying that Boston is the best in the league.
Lakers are the most overrated team in the NBA. They played 17 of their first 21 games at HOME!!!! If they didn't have the record they have right now that would really be a disgrace. Celtics would probably pummel the lakers in LA. Cant wait to see that matchup.
Lakers have played the 7th hardest schedule this year, compared to 27th for the Celtics based on this years records of opponents, but yeah, being 1 game better DEF means the CELTS are better.
I can have people agree with me, just not based on something a team did two years ago when their average starter is now 54 years old and has 2 goat knees. Whatever, if you polled 10 knowledgable basketball people every single one would tell you the Lakers are a better team than the Celtics. But you like KG and Gatorade, so more power to you.
Perkins matches up well with Bynum, KG eats girls like Pau for dinner, Pierce is a superstar (over Artest), Kobe is a superstar (over Ray Allen), Rondo is better now compared to Fisher. Team unity, I give the edge to the Celtics as well.
Fine. We will see. Although you people will end up with an excuse b/c there is no way the Celtics make it to the Finals. So I guess since they will get rolled in the EC playoffs they will always be better than the lakers, great reasoning...
Well, call me crazy, but the loss of Posey and the aging of KG and others will doom them over the course of the season, like the Spurs the last few years. Rondo's improvement is nice, but we all know how he and the team feel about each other. So whatever.
I seriously believe, after watching several games of each team, that the Cavs, Hawks, and Magic would beat the Celts in 7 game series
Notice that the starters didn't play the fourth quarter last night. OJ, ZBo, Gasol, and Conley didn't touch the floor in the fourth and Rudy came out as soon as he hit 40..... With 8 minutes left. Great strategy by coach Hollins and look for us to have fresh legs tonight. Hope OJ isn't too sore after his spill last night.
KG INTENNNNNNNNNNNNNSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE LOOK AT HOW MUCH I SWEAT I AM SO INTENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I AM SO GLAD I WAS ABLE TO HOOK UP IN BOSTON SO I COULD VALIDATE MY CAREER WITH THE HELP OF OTHER PLAYERS WHO CAN LEAD THE WAY OUT OF A PAPER BAG!!!!!!!!! INTENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOW NOW, don't start interfering with what these people see on Sportscenter, KG yells after he scores every time, he is so intense, surely he is better that everyone, I mean, for goodness sakes, he yells after every made FT like he just won a Western Conference Title, oh wait...he wouldn't know what that sounds like would he.
I hope I go and I see Eddie house's kid, I am gonna yell and tell him Santa isnt real, see how he likes that!!! Man, what is the deal with that kid, he is EVERYWHERE.
Man I hate that kid of Eddie House. So annoying! Worse than Jason Kidd's
KG is a shell of himself. He's an old dog that likes to bark, but his teeth are shot.
Rudy's going to throw one down in his face.
I would love for us to get a win here, but I'm not as hopeful. I think part of why we beat Cleveland is that they panicked a little bit at the end.
Bench is also a key, they are hella deep so Sam Young needs to produce on both ends and Hasheem needs to step up even more.
The person who should have the easiest time scoring is OJ. Rondo will give Mike fits, Pierce can still defend the best of them. KG is always manic, Perkins/Gasol could be interesting as well.
First to 90 wins
Uglies in green 91
There are a few numbnuts cheering for the Celts, but it sounds like they are well outnumbered, which is definitely a start.
The Celtics pretty much never miss...but we are playing pretty flawless..I hope they miss a few shots at some point..we just have to keep fighting and see where that gets us...The Celtics are the best and most complete team in the league in my opinion...
Okay I can see now that Boston announcers are going to get on my nerves
Dude if you've never heard this Tommy whatever his name is guy, you are in for a treat
Has the Celtics ever let a team shot 65%!!!!! On them before????
I don't think I can take listening to these homeristic Boston announcers "Rudy Gay has been to the line 5 times already. Their not calling fouls on the other end" Dude, whatever.
Could someone please explain to me how Shelden Williams pulled a looker like Candace Parker???
These announcers are gonna be SOOO pissd if we stay ahead.
Every time Boston misses... "Now that was a foul!!!!"
Rudy Gay is THE TRUTH!!!!
Does sheed REALLY have to scream and 1 after EVERY SINGLE SHOT???
No one can say Rudy isn't getting calls tonight. Well, at least in the first half.
This commentating crew is ridiculous, complaining that the might Celtics aren't getting calls.
KG coming in acting SUPER HARD, does he realize he is a joke, and that people who are not Celtics fans laugh at that crapt? Starin down Marc after he gets beat and gets lucky on a bail out swat?
The Celtics could get called for many moving screens but the refs wont call it
KG is fun to watch
Memphis is getting respect from the officials lately. They deserve it.
I am glad we are getting some calls so glad
About freaking time, the "truth" as you call him, flailed like the whinner he is, and luckily they called the moving screen...
Sheed is killing them.
"Everybody who flails their arms gets a foul called. In my day the refs wouldn't fall for that nonsense. Whenever a ref makes a call like that it's a joke to all refs." - Celtics announcers
These guys are by far the worst I've ever heard.
If they lose it is the refs fault.
How are these Boston play by play people employed still???
I rather have a sheed out.
That's one of the worst calls I have seen in a while, Pierce flops like a fish out of water every time he touches the **** ball, get the hell outtta here, we gonna play ball or play dolls Pierce??? Why don't you try and man up and play Rudy, you wont b/c you cant.
All the Celtics do is fake the fouls and set moving screens
Uh oh. Game over. Scalabrine is in for Boston. No need to watch any further.
Veteran teams act as hard as they play...annoying but reality..and the refs fall for it half the time..
I hate to say it, but rondo is amazing...the kid is just good...I was hoping Boston was dumb enough not to pay him...
Yea the "color" guy for the Celtics is so bad. He thinks that everything the Celtics do is right and the Grizzlies can't do anything good. At least most announcers give credit to the other team when they play well.
I think he was a former coach with them, I know he played for them. Heinsohn is ridiculous. He does that with everybody.
Tommy Heinsohn? Was the Celtics coach when Dave Cowens, John Havlichek beat the Suns with Paul Westphal back in the 70's for the NBA championship. He's in the NBA Hall of Fame as a player and coach.
Dang I'm surprised you guys aren't familiar with that Boston homer announcer. I've been cringing at his comments for what seems like forever now.
He was the main CBS color commentator through the 80's during the Bird-Magic rivalry. Was neutral on national TV during the games, but never hid that he was a Celtic fan before and after.
Perkins always seem to have a grimace on his face
HAHA 4 FOUL ON PERK.
But that means sheed will come in.
Love it, obvious foul on Pierce during rudy's play, KG goes untouched, yet gets the ccall....
Every time Rondo does his cute palm thing he is traveling, I am not sure why its not being called, but he is clearly traveling every time...whatever...
Lmao how do you get blocked by rondo.... Embarrassing.....
Late call! NBA is a flawed game because of what gets called and what doesn't. The refs can control a game and momentum. It stinks.
THE TRUTH has traveled no less than 3 times blatantly, that time he got a free 3pointer out of it...this is stupid.
You can take your tommy points and shove em up yer .......
I hate Wallace and his bald spot
That 3 hurt my heart
He makes it look easy hate Allen
Aight c's deserve it., clutch 3 by ray ray
That was a killer. Ray Allen is cold blooded
They keep saying Ray Allen is over the hill.
THen he keeps doing this.
I just listened to Paul Pierce' post game comments. He had nothing but praise for our team. He said we had one of the best starting five's in league. He expressed a lot of respect for the young guys playing unselfishly as a team. I appreciated what he said.
Incase some people forgot, we just went toe to toe with the best team in the NBA. They are the best road team in the NBA. We are one Ray Allen circus shot away from having a chance to tie or take the lead down on the other end. But that's why the Celtics are great. They have guys that can make shots like that.
This game gets played 2 weeks after Von Wafer is on board and we have the 3pt shooting to win this game.
If the grizzlies weren't so tired I doubt the Celtics woulda won. Think about it. The best team in the league can barely beat a team going back to back and having to travel to boot.
