Don't underestimate KG playing post D on Scola In the past games against the c’s, KG has completely owned scola in the defensive post. He uses his long arms to harass him and he knows scola is always going to go right (funny how nobody else knows).
Rajon Rondo is overrated in my opinion. Remember that playoff game against the magic where they rolled the ball in bounds to him near the end of the game to save time? Then around half court, Rafer or somebody dove for it? That was priceless
This game will be one of the toughest ones they’ve had in a while. If the Rockets win, it could send them thru the roof with confidence.
Way to underestimate Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson off the bench can be the single most notable reason we might lose this game
Rajon Rondo - the spiritual and "alien appearance" heir to Sam Cassell
Except he can't shoot at all
The .548 shooting would imply otherwise. Seriously, folks, where is this “Rondo is overrated” shit coming from? He’s a fantastic defender, rebounder, and passer, and his only real issue is that he lacks a consistent jumpshot. But when he can finish at the rim as well as most big men, that doesn’t really matter much.
Nba TV? Fantastic, I'll have to go to a bar to watch it now...
Our Big 3 tops Celtics Big 3 and leads us to victory, with rondo struggling from the field.
Must defeat Evil Guys in Green!
If we can stop Robert Parish we have a chance.
Celtics are a .5 team since the all star break. This SHOULD be a win, but with the rockets I don't know..
Give Martin the ball, watch old man Allen try to stay with him.
Run run run. Cannot make this a half court game or else Boston will murder the rockets. let's make it happen boys!
Contain Larry bird and we got this
Anyone notice the weird scheduling.... Two years ago yesterday our historic winning streak was put to end by the Celtics and now this year we take our longest winning streak of the season against the Celtics again? Sadly this year its only 4 games, but this year I think we keep the streak alive.... Man that streak was amazing
Officials: #14 Joe DeRosa, #57 Greg Willard, #40 Leon Wood This gives me hope. No Tony Brothers, Joey Crawford or Dick Bavetta, so I think we're good tonight.

Scola is schooling KG lol
Celtics look so slow
Go rockets. Make big baby cry
Celtics playing some great defense. If only we played great defe...wait, we did. 3 years ago.
Either Celtics defense is really good, or the rockets are just horrible offensively.
The Celtics are such a superior defensive team over us.
We just match up so bad with them. They are taller than us in every position.
They miss and miss and rebound and rebound. They don't score much, but they keep us from scoring.
Paul Pierce is a horrible matchup for Trevor Ariza.
Watching a good defensive team like Boston exposes what a average team we are.
Rockets can't get a call for the life of them when it matters.
I have nothing but contempt for these morally bankrupt officials.
Amazing! These thugs are allowed to swat, commit offensive fouls(Ray Allen on Scola), and push, and don't get called for it. Then, when they run into one of our players, we called for a foul.
Rajon Rondo is playing spectacuar defense.
Rondo is doing a great job staying denying brooks the ball and that's got our whole offense discombobulated.
This is about as close to Van Gundy's defense versus Adelman's offense as we could get. Thibodeaux with the awesome job bottling up Brooks and forcing the Rockets to go to something else.
If Houston starts to play some faster ball, Boston won't make it out alive.
There is no question in my mind that our players thought they were going to play against members of the AARP tonite and were just going to outrun the old gizzards to death. Instead, Boston decided to show up and teach these young pulps a lesson.
Completely scouted our backcourt. Damn that Tom Thibodeux!
Chuck Hayes 5-6 FTs means God is on our side tonight!
Are we looking something personal in Martin and Allen
Thank god for FT attempts, keepin' us in the game.
Rondo has that rep as a elite defender that's why he gets to do anything he wants on that end. Pretty much like how Artest bullies guys around.
I usually think Ray Allen is a stand-up guy. But it just goes to show that even the nicest guys can be corrupted on a team full of douchbags.
I wish someone would lay out Allen, I would if I were out there. I hate that guy.
Ray Allen is too good, too classy to hate.
It was intentional, I replayed it numerous times and Nate was looking down at Scola's leg. Nate used his left leg to trip him and then took a step and acted like he was falling too.
Woot! We're in the penalty now. Lots of C's with 4 fouls.
Please let Garnett or Paul foul out.
Foul, more foul calls... Good job, refs.
Wow rockets getting some homecookin tonight... 27 fouls for Boston, only 12 for rox
Celtics getting it done down the stretch while the Rockets wither away.
Oh well....Celtics are just a better team than us.
I hate the Celts, not as much as the Jazz but they are making all their shots and playing good D against us. I don't even think we played that badly, but they just outplayed us. Simple as that.
Just can't leave Garnett that open down the stretch he will get it done more often than not.
Does pierce have to practice acting like a douche at all times or does it just come naturally?
I think it comes naturally. Only a natural douche can drive someone else to stab them 11 times
Oh well, Celtics will get eliminated in the first round.
Pierce is the kind of player you wish bad things upon.
It was a good game against an elite team that played elite.
The Celtics are a better team than us so it wasn't surprising that we lost. But I now hate Ray Allen with a passion for his stunts tonight. And the worst part of it is he got away with his antics without any kind of foul called on him.
Boston Celtics = Rockets streak killer Ended our 22 game win streak and ended brooks consecutive games with a 3 pointer streak
We're still learning to play against a superior defense. Scola and Brooks couldn't get untracked. We'll play better on the rematch.
that's the defense we used to play, Celtics stole our treasure............
They showed up and played tight D this game that's for sure. They also got away with a lot. They are like Utah, the refs know they play rough so they swollow their whistles.
