Don't know why, but I think the way we played at home, as well as in game 2 has me pretty confident we will win this game, whether it's a close one or blowout.

Slick back Kenny Mauer and Ed Malloy are the officials tonight, and the 3rd of course being Jason Phillps, don't really know to much of him.

Tony Brothers is at the replay center.

Ken always has the slimeball look so I don't know what to expect. He's a felon, tax evasion, and I'm going to assume he probably cheats on his wife from time to time.

Celtics 105, Cavs 90. Celtics get it together, and the Cavs go cold again. Refs give Boston more than enough help, and LeBron gets too tired to attack the rim, with the refs just letting Boston hammer him with impunity.

Boston media is melting down over the officiating. Ummmm, your team fouls every possession and gambles the foul won't be called. That's been the case for four years. You call it "masking deficiencies" all you want, but the Celtics foul a fuck ton.

Boston's been full of shit since Red Auerbach was there. He's the guy that refused to draft Bob Cousy to "please the local yokels" -- then ended up with him in the dispersal draft. He once said that Julius Erving was a nice kid but not a very good basketball player. When the ABA folded he screamed that the Celtics would never allow the 3 point shot -- then changed his mind and rammed it through once he had Larry Bird. He's the guy who, ILLEGALLY, dashed to the bench in Game 5 of the 1976 series after Tommy Heinsohn was ejected -- of course the referees let him do it.

But that's nothing compared to the homer calls they've received over the years - Game 2 in 1976, Game 2 in 1985, Game 4 in 1985 (that one was at the Coliseum) -- not even Penn State or the Domers get the homer calls that they do.

I despise that franchise, its players, its fans, its front office, its coaches, the city, the whole state. Massholes, every one of them.

I hope LeBron tears every one of the Celtics a new Masshole tonight.

I can see this happening, and in my opinion it all revolves around if our roleplayers can hit their shots. If they go cold like they have, game is over.

But....... If they can carry over the heat from the past two games, we are tied or winning.

I put money on the Cavs.
If you don't win this one I'm suing every last one of you fuckers!

Yikes! I hear you though. I guess LBJ hasn't done too good in games 5's against the celtics.
Nothing would make my day more than to beat those guys and send their miserable fans home pouting.
