Just a few comments gleaned from the Cavs boards to whet your appetite for the series that begins on Saturday.
The only reason we didn't sweep the Bulls is because we didn't take them seriously. (Not to mention, we had bigger fish to fry)
I think that our team's hate for the Celtics could fuel a sweep.
Paul Pierce spits at benches, fakes injuries, acts like he gets whiplashed every time he drives. I wish whoever stabbed him knew what they were doing.
There is nobody in the NBA that I hate as much as Sheed.
I actually like Rondo. Don't like Rasheed. Don't like Big Baby. I like Perkins only because I know how hard he worked to get to where he is physically.
This could be a rough series. You know the Celtics are going after the elbow.
I think the key to the series is the benches. Cleveland has a stronger bench and more depth then the Celtics. If the Celtics get strong bench play then Cleveland could be in trouble. IMO.
I say we win in six rough and bumpy games, and hopefully we are not too banged and bruised for Orlando.
I think the Cavs could win in 5 if MB uses good rotations. Of course I don't have much of a reason to think he will, so it'll probably go 6.
Ray Allen is the man, for the rest of them: show no mercy.
The C's are done after this season.
Guaransheed victory for the Cavs.
Once again Kenny Smith believes Boston can beat the Cavs
Ray Allen is gonna have a field day against weak sauce.
Keep Lebrons elbow away from fat baby Davis and we should be okay.
Edit: unless it's hitting fatty's nose, then I'm okay with it
Boston will never win in Cleveland, so max this is going is Cleveland in 7 games.
Boston will be a CAKEWALK
I GURANTEE Boston won't be as hard to beat as some people think they will...
Our problem with Boston is RONDO and maybe TONY ALLEN
Take away garnett, pierce, ray Allen because these three are the so called OLD ONES but I betcha these guys are closers
I say CAVS should not let rondo control early in the game so we take a big lead. Celts will be dangerous if the game is close
What's the over/under on how many times Paul Pierce has to be Carried off the court? I'll say 3. That guy goes down quicker than an Italian soccer player.
But in all seriousness Rondo and Garnett both have to hit the floor.
