    No one “blew” the game. Stop crying about poor officiating being the excuse of your losses.

    Hey Lakers2009, I seem to recall a 39 point drubbing that happened to your boys the last meaningful game we played. So please, eat a dick.

  • Yeah Mike O, they forget that when it really mattered we smoked their ass. Yet another closet C’s fan w/nothing better to do on a Saturday night then troll around our site. He must’ve ran out of kleenex and lotion. Doc had every right to be pissed. If I didn’t have tickets to more games later in the season, I would’ve thrown my full soda and probably whatever else wasn’t bolted to the floor at those f’in refs on their way out of the Garden…

  • Breana

    Oh come on. Two close games shows the Celtics can’t contend with the Lakers. Does this mean the Lakers can’t contend with the Magic? Please let’s stop with the hyperbole and the useless advice. Its news to no-one Celtics have to win the East first.
