I have a feeling. Boston will be looking for blood tonight. It will be interesting to see if the Pacers can stick around with the vets. This game could quickly turn into a blow-out, how much fight do the blue and gold have in them?
Can't believe how healthy the C's are at this point. Relatively healthy I guess, but still.
Celtics pride has died
If there was ever a time for a poor-playing Celtics team to come out of their shell it would be on a Friday night, in Boston, and against an Indiana team that frankly wins by losing.
Especially on the heels of a 20 point drubbing at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies. I fully anticipate an ultra motivated Boston team tonight.
I think we win this one to be honest. We always play well against the Celtics and the Celtics are slumping and I really believe they have lost focus, I imagine Roy Hibbert will have a monster game!.....of course I said the same thing at the beginning of the year, so I am probably wrong. I will certainly be watching this game
Pacer's' have a chance. Boston has blown a tire and is just finishing out the season. Imo, no home court for them in the playoffs.
Boston is going to play hard tonight, it is make or break time for them. Doc tried to motivate them a LA Times Article panning them, and I have a feeling it might work.
Big Baby with the finger wave after blocking McRoberts!?!!
I like that they are giving Rondo the outside shots. Back off of him and let him shoot that all night. He has been hitting them early, but where he is dangerous is driving to the basket.
Seems like Nate only hits 3s against the Pacers
Hmm, Sheed just goaltended his own putback dunk. Not something you see everyday.
In other news Nate Rob is on fire
Yikes. C’s shot 78% in the second quarter.
Bad news: Pacers down 20
Good news: Celtics have to cool down in the second half (right?)
Well.. According to history.. We are gonna win this game.. Every game vs Celtics...it seems at the half we are down by around 20 and we come back in the 3rd and win against Boston.
If basketball doesn't work out for the pacers they could open a bakery they already have 13 turnovers.
Pacers defense like I-90 going thru South Dakota...next stop 45 miles.
What is this "defense" you speak of?
It's something other teams do. The thing is, see, they actually try to keep the other team from scoring. Novel concept, I know, but it seems to work for them.
Down 20 to the Celtics? I didn’t think we were this bad. Well, I did, I just love to subtly jab the Celts these days.
Well, at least we held them under 100 points for the game. What? Another quarter you say!? Oh noes!
The C’s are actually looking C-like tonight. The bench as much if not more than their starters.
Riddle me this.... You know Robinson is shooting lights out for three so what does JOB's system do? Leaves him wide open to shoot 4-4 at one point... Has he missed one yet? Other teams must love to play us.
Robinson is like a pesky fly that buzzes around your head and is just smart enough stay away from the swatter. He is a PAIN
Wallace just looks lazy on Defense these days
Coulda chalked this one as a loss in the second. Came out in the third and played patty cake with the Celts. Net gain? 1 flippin' single solitary lonely insignificant little point.
This is just simply brutal. Fat lady sang in the first quarter already. I am usually optimistic but am getting worn down at this point
We caught Boston on a night they decided to show up, but they’ve been so poor as of late I somehow doubt that’s the case.
At 8:59, Obie wanted the lead to 15. 25 will have to do
It would figure that we'd face the Celtics after they were humiliated on their home court. You just knew they were out for blood tonight. No way we had any chance of winning this game.
