I assume that you've all heard the sports term "win or go home."
Tonight, the Celtics need to take it to heart, as a Game 4 loss would
give Orlando a comfortable 3-1 series lead. Now, that isn't impossible
to recover from, but only eight clubs in NBA history have been able to
pull off a miracle comeback from an equal deficit. Mathematically, the
series would be up for grabs, but realistically it would be all but
over.

As Kendrick Perkins noted after Game 1's loss, the Celtics have the
tendency to get a little too comfortable and let their guard down. Game
2 was all fine and dandy, but the defensive effort in Game 3 was
atrocious at best, and the team was as out of sync offensively as
they've been all season.

Tonight, that's not gonna fly. No more lackadaisical defense, no more
stagnant offense, and no more allowing the opposition to dictate the
tempo of the game. It's time to buckle down and regain homecourt
advantage.

Take what's yours, Cs.

    Interior defense or lack thereof will decide this game. Ubuntu.

    Cut the horseshit, son. I’ve got their disciplinary files right here. Who dropped a whole truckload of fizzies into the swim meet? Who delivered the medical school cadavers to the alumni dinner? Every Halloween, the trees are filled with underwear. Every spring, the toilets explode.

    Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

    I’m officially now on the “THE REFS HATE US” bandwagon

    Yeah, why the fuck is Kennedy reffing this game? hes the guy that got a fine for getting into it with doc…um, again, why the FUCK is he officiating this game goddamnit

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f6a54c2970c ToTheRuins

    Oh, and playing fine, but a couple wide open anthony fatso johnson layups makes me feel like we should lose

  • zippittyay

    3 phantom fouls on Pierce.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p011570423591970b KobeWearsAPurpleThong

    we have to execute-can’t control the refs, can only control our execution-if this game is close enough that the refs can “decide” it, we have alot more problems than officiating-I don’t like the bad calls either, but it’s more than that-we have to ATTACK. can’t settle for jumpers…

    I was shocked Doc went with the twin towers of Moore and Perkins. Although we caught a break when Lewis picked up his 3rd foul…
    Seriously…how the hell do we let Anthony Johnson get to the basket? I swear I could beat him in a footrace.

    Oh yeah…and nice to see Paul Pierce asserting himself.

    no prob…let’s hope we all can enjoy a big win tonight…

    BABY JESUS!

  • crockopie

    how about the phatom fouls he gets for throwing his head back every time he gets the ball, get real.

  • crockopie

    Joey Crawford loves you, that’s the only reason the whole team didnt foul out. Watch the game for a change and understand that Rondo is a flopper and so is Pierce.

  • crockopie

    You guys are spoiled. You actually believe the refs dont give you enough calls. Get real, Perkins is a thug, Rondo just falls to the ground all the time, or trips and gets calls. Pierce keeps getting shot in the face with a bazooka anytime he gets near ANYONE. Rondo hurts a Bulls player and doesnt even get a foul call.
    Big Baby stands on the court and screams Mother F___kers to the crowd for a full minute after the game. REAL CLASS. And you guys have the audacity to think the refs are against you.
    Someone was worried about a ref that got into it with DOC. Its been an issue for a while that Joey Crawford hates Stan and the Magic and every game he officiates bears it out. So with the NBA loving 7 games series and him there you guys had a lock.
