It depends... The Celts have actually been better on the road this season than they have at home, and they've played lackluster against lesser teams like the Sixers. All that being said, the main strike against the Pacers is that they beat Boston earlier and the Celts haven't forgotten that.
I look at the Celtics starting 5 and I just see 5 players who are simply unlikable people. I seriously could never root for any of them. Well Perkins seems like a good guy, but I don't like by association
What the hell is wrong with Ray Allen?
Seriously. I've always seen him as a nice and charitable guy. Cold blooded (Ask the Bulls), but cool and smart.
PACERS WILL WIN IT BY 10
This is gonna be an ugly ugly loss. The Celtics are looking for revenge. They are getting ready to take the Pacers behind the woodshed for an old-fashioned A** whooping. The 4th straight loss is on its way!!
KG is not playing tonight
Even without KG, they're a lot to deal with, especially with us being one of the 5 losses
My game-time prediction of the night? Sheed is going to get a technical when he loses it when Hansbrough aggressively guards him.
Two possessions two turnovers for Boston. I’d like to say the Pacers had a hand in those, but Boston just threw ’em away really.
Boston is missing shots, would be a great chance to hit some shots and get a nice little cushion for when they heat up, but Pacers just aren’t taking advantage.
Boston seems very disinterested in this game
21-8 Pacers. Good start. Just what we need in case the Celtics decide to show up tonight.
I'm waiting for the inevitable collapse when TJ gets on the court.
I really don't care for watching Scalabrine
I remember making fun of him when he first joined the league wondering how to hell he could make it on an nba roster. Now 5 years later I’m still wondering, o well, he’s an nba champion I guess
What a pass by Ford.... RIGHT to Sheed under the basket!! Oh wait…
I don't care for watching Eddie House either. This dude will never miss a three when his team needs it.
Pacers up 47-52 at the half Can’t ask for much more really. Hope Indiana keeps up the intensity in the second half. Celtics will probably be a little more aware in the second than they were in the first
There is always the second half swoon that should take care of our early threes. I hope not for our sake, but our legs generally don't last into the 4th.
Wassup with Hibbert tonight, 14 mins., no points?
So 15 point lead, how many of you think the Celts come back? I have my doubts about our half to half continuity. I guess we will see. Earl was great is the first half, loved his play!
Ray Allen is killing Dun!
We wouldn't want to, say, put Brandon back in to cool off Ray would we?
I thought they would come back, but not this quick... Man Perks a punk, throwing elbows, just my opinion.
Can we have a whole new set of players please?
Wow..if we fall apart when Watson is in, what's gonna happen when TJ gets put in..
Luther held House's foot there and didn't get caught.
Why is Pierce allowed to ***** and not get a T?
The NBA and Celtic mystique?
Oh did you just see Watson Level big RED Headed Ginger kid? No foul! Looked an awfull lot like that recent Kobe play were Kobe raped Bogut according to many on this board!
DJones is too small to guard The Truth.
ALOT of missed calls and bad calls tonight.. Which just plain SUCKS!
Pacer lead cut to 8
Boyle said Sheed was 'lollygagging'
All Sheed ever does is lollygag
How hott is that Celtic cheerleader?
Well another 4th quarter collapse
Dagger by Pierce.
Better luck next time.
Very disturbing trend, every game with 4 minutes to go the Pacers just wilt away.
Did the announcer just accidentally call us a good team?
I don't think so. He meant the Celtics - it seemed he wasn't sure if he should be calling them great or good. That's how I heard it.
Bostons just better than us. Not much you can do about that.
Hey – at least we didn’t pull a Chicago.
Hard fought game by the Blue and Gold.
Screw the Celtics. They'll be done in a few years anyway.
I can't believe the Bulls stole all our come-from-ahead loss thunder last night. We've been doing it consistently for three years.
When the score was tied after three did anyone think the Pacers had any shot whatsoever at pulling this one out? This team is clutch in terms of finding ways to lose basketball games.
Typical Pacers....Great first half, horrible second half. Murphy was incredible. We made Kendrick Perkins look like a first ballot hall of famer.....how many times was he underneath the rim for an easy layup
The Boston Celtics would like to clean up their play at home before setting out on yet another road trip. A matchup with the struggling Milwaukee Bucks may help their cause .They are going to be awesome this season... cant wait to see him next time use to their games.
