We need to win, tired of losing on national TV, need to go back to blowin out teams like last year on TV.. Lets go off for 130
No Pierce scares me though, we need to step on their **** old throats.
Magic blow these clowns out. Let Bass play and matchup on KG. I'm pretty sure the Celts fans got their excuse list made already.
Lets get this. I really, really want to beat Boston
I sure would like a Magic win for Christmas. The thing I hate though, is that in some respects it's lose/lose:
If we lose, we have to listen to Celtics fans chomping on about how last year was a fluke, etc.
If we win, it'll just be about how the only way were able to beat them is when they're injured and it doesn't mean much.
In any event, I hope we win whether it's by 1 or 31. Regardless of what anyone says, we're #2 in the East right now, and Boston is only one game ahead of us.
This should be an interesting game. I'm not underestimating the Celtics right now. I just hope the Magic come out with great intensity and we prove to them that we are the best team in the East!!
Will we win? I have this funny feeling that we won't, but who knows. I'm no longer confident even without Pierce.
Dear Santa, I want complete destruction of a Boston Celtic team....
All this pre game talk of Kobe v lebron makes me want to hurl.
I just wanna see sheed chucked out fast
He annoys me
.I want a massacre.Dwight with 30 and 20,Vince 35 on 70% shooting and many many free throws.Oh heck,I'll settle for a win.
Let's win by 40 points.
Dumb foul. You know Perkins got called on a touch foul, so you go and do that?
Scalabrine in. Rashard needs to attack him relentlessly.
Good job rondo. That pass was much better than your fake-it-behind-the-back pass that was eaten up by lebron
Howard can't even get position. I can understand against Perkins, who has a huge lower body, but Rasheed? He's not that strong down there.
Rondo is even more scary with that hideous red headband
Also, just one more reason not to like Rondo... The idiot sticks his hands up as the opposing player is shooting free throws.
Lol at Garnett apologizing to Dwight immediately for the inadvertent elbow to his face
...sommmmmmeone was a weeee bit scared haha
Not at all, if you knew anything at all about the NBA you would know he and Dwight are good friends.
Lol @ the cheap shot by Mr fake intensity
Everyone on the oldtimers has a red headband
KG..cant stand him
Sheed is Dwight's kryptonite, he does a great job of never letting him get post position.
Hahah Scal is the biggest poser ever!
Did you see him during C's free throws earlier in the quarter? On his knee, in front of the C bench, slapping the floor on a hit FT... Giving a KG trademark face!
Boston has Sheed and Perkins. Offensively, Howard just cannot do anything against those two on any sort of consistent basis.
Way too many touch fouls for both sides. This is the NBA not a pre-school rec league. Let the MEN play.
Yea, The refs made unnecessary calls on both teams.
Bad news - we're shooting 30%
Good news - we're winning
Big Baby about to check in.
HOLY CRAP BIG BABY IS FATTER THAN BEFORE! Lol
Ea but the hair makes him look a lil bit taller, he can put on at least 10 more lbs
Rondo owning the paint with Dwight out.
Almost a half in, still cold.. Unbelievable..
It may have something to do with Boston's defense.
Lets just take turns shooting 2 free throws at a time, first to 80 wins
Dwight is such a dumbass against Perkins. What is it about Perkins that makes Dwight so retarded? Well, more retarded than usual.
Lower torso strength.He cant get anywhere near the basket.
Meer had a foot on the line but hey, refs like offensive fouls so let's take 'em
He has problems against Boston because they have Perkins and Rasheed who, despite being able to jump about an inch off the ground anymore, still gives him problems for some unknown reason. Rasheed does not have a strong lower base, and those are almost always the guys that give Dwight problems.
Well yeah, I know Dwight can't score against him. He can't score on anybody who is strong enough to hold their ground. But in addition to that, Dwight completely loses any IQ he has against him.
Hubie and Mike loving this. What a Christmas for them. Getting to laugh at the Magic all day.
Great, the Celtics are going to win this game. They will then say that they beat us WITHOUT Pierce, and that the last game was a fluke because Garnett has only recently gotten into his groove. We will say that we beat them without Nelson the last time, but the will give the resounding "LMAO if you think Nelson is as valuable as Pierce or Garnett" argument.
Hell Rondo has no type of game, but at least he drives to the rim and gets calls.
Rondo fell by himself and did his best golden globe performance as usual
If I played basketball I would get ejected for punching and than kicking Rondo for as many times as I can get before they separate us, I hate this mother ****
Those freaking red headbands make our players go blind, we should enforce the no headbands rule in our house too
The Magic should have X-Mas dinner in a house they built off all those bricks they shot tonight. It'll be a pretty spacious home.
Did Big Baby lose weight? He looks trimmer. Or maybe I just haven't seen his fat ass in forever.
Injure Rondo. Please
We're awful. Boston wants this and Rondo deserves any credit he gets. Hustle....it works in the NBA. Some of our guys should try it sometime.
Do this team is dumb and stupid. Thanks a lot Magic for embarrassing us fans again.
Did Vince just bully KG?
KG just fell by himself. When he didn't collide with anyone, it kind of screwed him over.
Orlando = joke. A real 'contender', huh?
Credit to Boston and especially Rondo but we shot ourselves in the foot repeatedly then.
I wish we had the Lakers roster.
I don't even care about their roster. Just give me their championship from last year.
I'd be happy with 12 random D-Leaguers for the rest of the magic's existence if we had a championship. It's better than having hope year after year and then blowing it.
When the going gets tough, Dwight mentally folds. I agree with every single ESPN announcer that says Boston is mentally tougher than Orlando. This is simple fact. This is not to say we're supposed to go out and crush opponents, but playing dumb basketball is playing dumb basketball. When we play dumb offensively, it gets into our heads and affects our defense.
Paying all those luxury taxes in order to lose to a team without its star, which we had beaten with such less salary total.... Priceless.
Great Defense early in the 1st half by the Celtics, and it was Rajon Rondo that carried them to the win. A hard loss to take but nothing for us to cry and whine about.
The better team won. For now.
Worst thing is that we lost to them without Paul Pierce
Well it shows you how good the Celtics are without one of their stars.
Stat line of the game.
Rondo 13 rebounds.
Nelson, Carter, Pietrus, Lewis 12 rebounds combined.
Does anyone find it funny that during the game, after the game, on espn, and on realgm everything was overreacting about how Boston was so good and Magic suck yet when the Lakers get creamed everyone makes excuses for them?
They always make excuses for LA And whenever Kobe has a bad game he's "sick"
This shows that Boston is better, they make Dwight a non factor offensively and are so good defensively. This team can't offensive rebound and creates no second chance points and has to many To's. Not to mention Rondo can dominate Meer and the guy grabs more offensive rebounds than Dwight. Its sad when we shoot like 30% and still can barely get an offensive rebound.
Hey guys, do you think the Magic purposely lost in order to not play on Christmas next year? So far, we've been playing on Christmas for the past couple of years. Maybe they should have some scrub team play on Christmas for once.
