This game only confirms what I have been saying the whole season: The Celtics are no longer contenders for the title.

Atlanta, Cleveland, and Orlando are definitely the top 3 teams in the east. Boston is the clear 4th, well behind the top 3, but still comfortably ahead of the rest of the teams.

I really hope we get them in the 2nd round, let Atlanta and Orlando duke it out while we hammer the Celtics in 5 games.
Celtics will get demolished by all three by going small they can't keep up.

You are giving him too much credit, it was more like this:

"Guys, we are still in this, ya know, Bron is doing everything...keep giving him the ball so he can isolate....always look for Bron."

To which Mo replied under his breath:

"I'll look for Bron until it's *sings* GAME TIME!"

*reference to their home intro video

We have Andy,JJ,Jamison, Powe, LeBron.... Im not worried about posts. We might have to play a little small ball but no big deal.

Now if only he'd give Delonte "the job" on a permanent basis...
I was leaning lately to the idea that Parker should continue to start, but after tonight, I'm not leaning that way anymore. West is the undercarriage of a car that continues to carry it forward and never stopping. The guy is nothing but hustle out there and totally played lock down D in the second half.

I'm still smiling about how beastly the entire team looked against Boston in the last two quarters.

We kicked the living shit out of them. We beat their ass. We whipped their butts.

Only thing I'll add is to give it up for Hickson's performance on defense in the 2nd half tonight. Was a concern about him in his development but if tonight is any indicator, he is getting it defensively and will be a solid player at that end. Did a very nice job on both Wallace and Garnett and rotated well.

Andy will probably match up pretty well with Bargnani. Checking up on our schedule if there's any games in the near future where we'll really need Shaq ..

... wow, assuming he only misses a few weeks, we should be fine.
Also, Toronto papers say that Bosh is likely out for tomorrow night's game, so matchups will be quite different.

Im having a strong itch in my head that Jamison will make up for his performance today with a 20 10 game tomorrow. I said it first.

We have all formed a relationship here, so if any of you would humor me I would greatly appreciate it.

Did anyone watch the TNT feed, did it seem to have choppy video for seconds at a time during the entire game?

Someone in here said it was the TNT feed but I want to be positive it wasn't just this shitty campus cable...

Looks like Cavs wont be able to fly out tonight. Weather is awful in Boston. Gonna make for a very tough back to back.

Sadly, it's probably mainly because Shaq got hurt. But at least they hit more of them.

Craig Sager just said "We wish George Karl the breast."
