Our Young, Rested Team 97
Their Old, Tired Team 89
I was hoping for triple overtime tonight so they would be exhausted and miss their flight, etc. But no such luck. This would be a premier win as none of their guys are really hurt. Think we'll be close but no cigar
The win streak comes to a sudden end:
KD will own KG......Russ will own Rondo...MARK MY WORDS!!!
How bout KD owning PP? , but that doesn't sound good, does it?
Lot's of match-up problems for the Thunder on this one. Could get out of hand early.
Probably wont win....but doesn't mean they can't.
I see this as a bad matchup for RW0. Rondo leads the league in steals, so Russ is going to have to pay special attention to his handle. I'm going to be at work with 98% Celtics fans tonight, so wish me luck....If I don't post anything around midnight then pray for me as I'll be in intensive care.
Our starters are 2" taller than theirs with the exception of Green vs Wallace. Rondo is very quick. Not sure about the rest of their squad. Our defense needs to keep helping each other. Our guards need to watch out for long passes to the paint after Celtic defensive rebounds. We have a great chance at winning and think we will.
Only problem is Wallace doesn't start. KG starts at power forward. So he has at least 3 inches on Green.
KG can be a streaky player. He can hang 30 or 3 on any given night. I think we have a shot at these guys.
Upset of the season thus far, Thunder by six!
Thunder by 3. Book it! (Unless of course, it doesn’t happen.)
The Celtics are on a big winning streak, but they're coming off a tough win on the road last night. The Thunder has the Celtics in a great position for them to slip up on the road.
Well we get to play the Celtics at a perfect time (we're on a long homestand and they're playing back to back road games) but they are still a much better team than we are. It will be close but we lose by 8
LOL at Jeff Green guarding Kevin Garnett Looks like Earl Boykins.
Russell Westbrook has a very bad tendency to go for fruitless offensive rebounds.. He just goes up against Kevin Garnett to grab the rebound, I mean what are the odds that he gets that one? So he falls to the ground and the Celtics have #'s in transition and Pierce hits a wide open three.
I am not sure I can hate a team more than I hate the Lakers but the Celtics are making a push.
This team is just Charmin Soft on the interior, we're getting murdered.
Wallace says "And 1" every time he shoots
I really didn't see Garnett do anything too horrible there. Don’t know why they’re babbling on about it.
They’re still talking about “jousting” by the Celtics and the Thunder “can only be pushed so far.” Clearly they know more about basketball than me but it seems like it’s been a pretty civil game to me.
Were actually doing a pretty good job of getting to the line. If we can keep that up we could pull this one out
Not of Boston shoots 60% from the field all game.
True we need to stop pierce, hes murdering us. And so is garnett. Ugh this is one of those Jeff Green just does nothing games =/
I'd hate to point to the refs on this one because we would've lost either way, but, man, it was like the Celtics had there own crew out there. Kinda figured we'd lose, but not that way.
That game was really discouraging. Don't mind losing to the Celtics, I realize it would take a great game for this team to beat the Celtics whether home or away, but that was a beat down.
I really hate the Celtics. I just wish one time a team would beat them so bad it would wipe that smuggness off their faces.
That was a tough one to watch. OKC played pretty well in the first half, I thought. But in the second half, they just didn't show up.
Its not just win / loss ........... Its how they lose. The Celtics should be team to measure against and find out how much improvement this team has made........... And the Thunder did not even show up tonight
That's how it's been though. It doesn't matter which team we're up against. We play very good one game and we play very bad another. The only difference from this game compared to a lot of our other losses is that the Celtics are pretty much the best aside from the Lakers.
