I'm always amazed at how quickly fans turn on their team. This Magic team won 59 games. They swept the first two rounds of the playoffs. And now the fans want to blow up the team and fire the coach. Just wow. I'm also amazed when fans get so classless as to wish real harm on a player, like the one in these comments who wishes for Pierce to be stabbed. This is just a game, guys. Yes, you are disappointed. I've been there, believe me. But let's not wish death on someone just so your team can win. Some good stuff in these comments. I especially liked the comment from the Cleveland fan who was talking about how the Celtics defense is what makes teams look like they aren't trying. Enjoy the journey from confidence to despair in these Comments from the Other Side...
Every time I see Paul Pierce's face I want to punch his teeth down his throat. Cocky SOB, I hope Barnes kicks his *** tonight!
We need this, we'll get it.
Orlando's going to go in there tonight and quiet the Celtics. They've been playing way above their head these last five games; they're bound to come down.
Do or die! Rashard steps up we win...he doesn't we lose. Earn that friggin 119 mil Lewis!
Orlando is clearly the better team. We didn't play well in Orlando. We'll see the real Magic tonight and blow them out.
This team is too good and too proud to get blown out.
We get this win... I guarantee it!
Let's put these old geezers to bed where they belong. I believe in Magic
2 of the worst games we have played since January and lost by a combined 7 points. We are the best team in the nba it's time to go get it.
Anyone catch Eric Snow last nite on NBA.TV....he said the Magic will game game # 3 & 4 & win the series in 7!!
Lets lose and pull off a Flyers comeback. Boston fans will kick the **** outta themselves when both Bruins and Celtics blow a 3-0 lead.
Let's do this. I would love to see the team play together and just dominate the green gremlins. It would make my night...and probably my year.
I can't remember last time c's were up 2-0 and didn't lose. They are great at the 1 game let up.
Salvator reffing is leagues way of making sure c's lose.
Before Game 1 and Game 2, I had that weird feeling that the Magic were going to lose. For Game 3, I have a feeling we are going to come out strong and win.
Let's go Magic!!!!!!!!Take that smile off of Pierce's ugly old face. You can do it!!!!!! Make Pierce look like the biggest idiot ever.
Remember, the series doesn't start until someone wins at home
I think it started the moment I saw Boston's defensive gameplan in action.
Their defensive game plan is solid. I'm not in awe because it's not unbeatable
Vince guarding Allen is a disaster waiting to happen.
We going to lose. Think about next season...
99% ready to congratulate the Magic on the win already. Salvatore has historically been an awful ref for the Celtics and has a quick whislte on technicals.
Salvatore used to call games in favor of Orlando But something happened this year and he now has it out for Dwight. So it seems both teams should prepare for the wrath of Bennett.
I think most people would agree that the 3 refs that make up Stern’s Axis of Evil are Salvatore, Bavetta, and Joey Crawford. None of them should ever be allowed to officiate in the NBA ever again.
The Celtics are 3 1/2 point favorites
Here come the Celtic fans later : "Ray dunked on Dwight!"
How did Lebron get on a video about winning a championship? Only the NBA
What a flop by rondo
This game is starting the same as the other two. I predict a similar outcome
VC can not be chasing Ray all night. This is a big mistake!
This is already looking ugly. I hope the Celts just start to come down from this peak they are at right now through the last 5 games. We're so much better than this and a lot of it is just dumb mistakes, not "incredible defense"
Anyone else see Perkins foul Lewis on that baseline jumper and the refs no call and they called him on a BS off foul
Dwight trying his best right now... What the hell happened to us? We have no confidence anymore.
Boston is not this good. All I can do is chuckle.
That's what the Heat and Cavs were saying during the last couple series. And its probably what the Lakers say when they start losing to Boston too.
We're beating ourselves. Unbelievable.
Dwight has very little concept of what is happening around him on D. Why the hell is he showing on Pierce and letting Perkins look like an AllStar?
I'm noticing a pattern. Whoever Carter guards is going to have a big game.
That Allen play shows how bad they want it. We have to match the exact intensity
Why is pierce getting the king James treatment from the refs?
Ya think we can play a game with out spotting them 10 points??
Celtics are just too **** good
Jameer has lost his killer instinct this series. But than again, that what happen when Rondo is busting yo *** on the other end of the court.
HOW THE **** IS GLEN DAVIS BEATING US DOWN THE FLOOR
I hope Lebron goes to the Knicks, then I can switch teams
Rondo is turning into a superstar right before our eyes.
Did we catch a disease from the hawks or something?
Have faith or not, we cant beat the lakers anyway. Eastern Champion doesn't mean anything after all
I've never turned off a Magic game before, but I just had to after that J-Will play. Got it recording in case a miracle happens, but it's just too painful for me to watch. So disappointing.
Is there any way we can forfeit Game 4 so the team can go home tonight and stop wasting time and money?
It doesn't look like Orlando has an answer for Rondo.
Things this team loves to do: - talk
Things this team loves to not do: - back up that talk
Boston looks washed up all season and they found the fountain of youth all a sudden? Gimme a break. They've hit a hot streak at the worst time for the Magic, unfortunately.
Wow. I want everyone traded. This team is trash.
We can't win at home. We can't win on the road. I just can't figure out where else to play!
Dwight Howard is overrated trash. If anyone ever tries to tell me he is good offensively again I will e-slap them.
Down 15 and Pierce is laughing. I'd probably laugh too if I was him.
Siiigh, here I was, rooting for the Celtics to beat the Cavs. Is this the price we pay?
I guess Pierce was right last year its Pitbulls vs Poodles.
Pierce is asking for a broom if anyone has one, seems like some puppies just crap on the garden floor
Rondo > Orlando Magic
I'd rather be losing to the lebrons.. These Celtics are annoying.
Doc's not scared to play his bench.....
OMG not Big Baby... Anyone, but don't make Big Baby beat us like that....
Still a lot of basketball to play. I remember seeing a stat where the Magic outscored the Celtics in the 4th quarter throughout the series by ALOT. If the game is kept within 10-15 pts then there will be a chance.
How are we doing so horrible after doing so well?
Anyone want to buy some magic jersey's?
That was only the first half. We take them in the second half.
Jameer is sucking the entire series
Two Words: Rajon Rondo
I can't believe I'm saying this but PAUL PIERCE was right....but I will say I will be rooting like crazy for the lakers in the finals.
I'm sitting here watching this game with my DVR and wondering how Boston is managing to eviscerate our defense over and over again. I realize that just about our entire team has vanished and been replaced by replicants with half the ability
It looks like the Boston Celtics jump in that "hot tub time machine" right before the playoffs begun, because their on a roll.
Someone stab PP again please
This time do the job right
You would hope that after a very mediocre player in Big Baby Davis danced and punked you like that, it would motivate your team.
Problem isn't coaching. Its soft players. These players aren't equipped for physical basketball
Celtics almost always let their opponents back into games when up big. That's all we can hope for really.
I blame JUST WRIGHT. Hopefully one day we can get some players that will win something before they make a movie.
Rashard Lewis $18,876,000, $20,514,000, $22,152,000, $23,790,000
How in the Hottest depths of Hell do you get out of that contract?
Does his family have a history of heart attacks in their early 30's? That'd probably be the only way.
I'm embarassed because for some time I actually thought we were the best team in the league.
We're nowhere near the Celtics level.
C's' are just the better team
Howard has raped Big Baby a couple times so far and they haven't been called.
Rondo sounds like a robot. A robot that is better than our entire starting 5...
When glen **** Davis is scoring at will against you then something terribly wrong with your team.
Bostons defense is to good for jameer to make things happen
Rondo is starting to become my favorite player to watch in the NBA. The guy knows how to get and keep everybody involve in the game.
I can't believe SVG let his players not show up like this. And I'm not giving Boston an ounce of credit because of there so called "stiffling defense", we're just flat out not showing any hustle!!
Boston are just playing crazy defense and rock solid offense. We aren't just losing. They are beating the crap out of us. Just a simple fact. No excuses.
Believe it. Boston is just a better team. We can kid ourselves and act like Dwight Howard's grandma died or something but Boston has just outplayed almost every single quarter in this series.
Our beloved point guard..
1 assist on a talented roster.
14 shots, the most on the team. (5 makes)
MVP of game.
Can't wait until the Celtics play the Lakers, and the Lakers kick their old dumbass butts to Sunday.
I'll never forgive this group of players for this game...NEVER...
God I hate the lakers and the Celtics.. Its going to be hard to even watch the finals
It is what the NBA needs for sales... I am convinced the Magic took this in as a trade for us to get the All-star games in 2012...
We should trade Dwight for big baby
You have to give credit to the Celtics because they clearly earn their massive salaries unlike most of our guys out there.
The first thing I want SVG to say at the podium is "yes now it's panic time..we are gonna to panic now...I AM THE MASTER OF PANIC AND I'M PANICKING NOW..."
We would've had a chance had we been the 4th seed. Atlanta has killed Boston this year and we have a better chance against the Cavs than Celtics.
I still feel when push comes to shove, Boston would've torched Atlanta in the playoffs
I basically want to die right now. Except I have to see how LOST ends.
You guys all make it sound easy to take over against this Celtics defense. There is a reason why ALL of our starters look like ****, and that's because they pack the paint, foul hard, rotate on a rope, and close out hard. Unless you're LeBron, or Kobe I don't see how anyone can remotely take over against this Celtics d
Props to Boston. They may not be the classiest, but they are a great team.
I said this to fellow Cavs fans and I'll say it to Magic fans. Boston is a helluva defensive team right now. They would make most any team in the NBA look like they have no desire
God I hate rondo
Really?...he's the only Celtic I really like, such a tough player.
We'll bounce back on Monday! I promise you guys we won't lose by more then 10...
What about the defensive game plan by Tom Thibedeau for Boston......WOW! he's gotta get a head coaching job after this series.
Lol maybe in Orlando next yr
Tip your hats to the Celtics, they are on a different level than us.
Doc Rivers is one of the best coaches of the NBA. I don't know who I'm going to root for in the Finals because I really hate both teams.
I am sick and tired of hearing about "Rajon Rondo." Magic Johnson's calling him the best player on the Celtics!? This is ridiculous. Rajon Rondo is the Hideo Nomo of Basketball. He's gonna play well through these playoffs because no one's figured out his game yet but next year he's going to get dominated. He has huge holes in his game that neither the Cavs or the Magic have exploited. Both the Cavs and Magic have tried to guard Rondo like they would guard a normal point guard. Rondo isn't a normal point guard. He has NO JUMPSHOT!!!!!
I may be wrong, but the Lakers are winning it all again. They wont be bullied by the Celtics.
