People asked for it in the last series… so we're going to toy around with an open game thread to see how people like it.
Watch the game here… talk about it here… and enjoy yourselves.
LET’S GO C’S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PP owns Vince
perk 17 footer???
So far so good. I LIKE this game… guys playing with confidence, energy. 2 min to go in Q1………..
here we go good looks for pierce and not giving dwight anything easy!
Cs are playing extremely well. Ray doing most of the driving so far (end Q1)…. and it’s working. 3 more quarters like this, and Orlando can say byebye to the HCA.
BLOW THEM OUT!!!!!!!!!
Holy shit. Holy shit. Damn…. can they keep this up in the 2nd half. I say YES…. Celts are playing with CONFIDENCE, calm and energy. Like they KNOW they’re gonna win. Wow.
Dwight Howard was an All-Star, All-NBA First Team, and Defensive Player of the Year.
And he’s getting his shit dominated by Kendrick Perkins and Glen Davis.
damn Perk travels again…
I have a feeling rondo’s gonna explode in the second half
– Paul, remember that you are a fair-to-poor ball handler.
– Perk — please go back to D-League and learn how to play offense. Cause YOU SUCK at it. Seriously… Perk is not an NBA-level offensive player on O.
Perkins is an idiot
TA42 is playing like it is 2006!!
Perkins is an idiot. (Even Doc couldn’t believe how inept he is on offense.) Geez… just put Sheed in there please.
In ONE half of play, Perkins has FOUR turnovers. FOUR. What a piece of crap he is on offense. AND he can’t hit free throws. And he’s in the NBA… why? He plays defense, and that’s great… but jeezus, I know 15-year-olds that are better on offense that Perkins. NOT kidding.
true dat perkins is killing this teams momentum and he bitches about every call and gets T’D up all the time.
how many big men play great offensively against howard? yea he’s been bad today, but damn your being irrational about it. he was leading the NBA a good portion of this year in FG% so he can’t be as inept as you seem to think.
Easy on the big fella. I think it’s obvious he is hurting. At this point in the season, especially after just finishing up banging with Shaq for 6 games, big guys are just beat down. His offense was incredible the 1st half of the year, and then I really think that knee got worse. I know he is struggling on offense, and it’s frustrating, but he is so good on Dwight (and other big guys) on defense that I’ll overlook it. Key stat of this game so far: Magic 0-9 from 3. If C’s keep the defense intensity up, and shoot a bit better, we’ll win.
Excuse me… did Howard cause him to travel, and commit moving picks on offense… Sorry, but Perk is an idiot all on his own.
No excuse for multiple moving picks, and dancing around the floor with the ball in his hands. The man has the offensive part of his brain missing.
guess the guy can’t have a bad game on ONE side of the court. overreaction.
Look for the Magic to adjust by trying harder to stop Ray’s penetration. I think the Cs will counter by unleashing Rondo. Will be intersting to see if Rondo has a big 2nd half. So far, there’s no question about it: Cs are outplaying the Magic. The defense is AWESOME. And the offense has been damn good too, especially if you subtract Perk’s moronic play.
dammmmn i’m nervous please don’t choke in the second half
I hate Kendrick Perkins.
Perkins, gotta love him
Yeah… he just tipped an easy rebound off a missed Howard FT out of bounds. Good one, Perk. I make the SIX TOs now
Cs up 16… time to put this game AWAY. Bring the hammer DOWN boys.
Me too. He is shutting down and frustrating Howard along w/Sheed. Alot of these “fans” forget how well Perk played the 1st half of the year when Ticket was still fighting back from his injury and ‘Sheed was hucking up 3’s. Now they badmouth him. Disgusts me.
KILL EM IN THE 4TH !!!
Hey, he’s great on defense. But he completely SUCKS on offense. As in “SUCKS”
yeah and we gotta give the truth credit right? hell yeah
I don’t know how they compare rondo and Nelson… they have completely different skill sets. Rondo drives, passes, and defends better. Nelson shoots better. I’ll take Rondo any day of the week
You misunderstood me buddy, I was being sarcastic. I do appreciate his D, I just dread his O.
Sheed is true to his word.
The C’s are putting on a CLINIC – PICK YOUR POISON!! Terrific passing by Pierce, Rondo, KG, great finishing by Davis and PROUD minutes from SHEEEED!!
7 more minutes boys….
Right now the C’s are going back to their old habits and relaxing this game.
I hate it when they do that crap.
Oh no, I know..lol..I gotcha!
JJ freaking reddick…
5 point game. Jeez. At least Perk’s out of the game. Some bad choices near the end there…..
13 pts for DHo on 3 of 10 shooting. GREAT defense by Perk/Sheed. F*** yeah.
Holy shit. Can you believe this? I’m sorry… did I say Orlando was gonna be their TOUGHEST challenge? Well…. maybe, maybe not. Wow. 4th quarter collapse, but they SURVIVED IT. :))))
(Take out Perkins’ MANY offensive blunders, and we’d have won going away.)
Wait. I’m confused. Hawks swept Celtics in the regular season. Magic swept Hawks in the playoffs. Obviously the Magic should sweep the Celtics, right?
Yes. And the Cavs got Jamison for a reason.
To pose for Gucci’s poster shot.
He’s the Beast!!
Unleash the Beast!!
True but Howard is not much better. It’s like the blind D-ing the blind.
