    The leauge upgraded one of dwights fouls on kg to a flagrent.
    Should have been 3 and he would be sitting tonight.
    Maybe the leauge told the refs to watch his cheap shots and we will have a better chance.

  • Rush

    let’s go c’s. time to end this.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01157053529f970b zippittyay

    Sox to sweep the Death Rays tonight and Celtics to end the current era of the Orlando Magic…. You floridians can keep your chokey teams, fake fans, smelly alligators and your fire ants.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ce367970c celts9

    nice charge to get that open dunk howard…how is that not called?

  • Rodger

    2 fouls on kg what bull.

  • rodger

    2 fouls on rondo what bull

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    That walking penis isn’t going to give us any calls.

  • Rodger

    2 fouls on baby what bull.
    Tell me the fix isnt in.

  • rodger

    This is a joke.
    The refs are starting to piss me off as usual.

  • DRJ

    It’s 5 vs. 8 so far. Crawford is out of control, as usual. Gonna be tough to win if the refs keep this up.

    lol Vince with the hand of triumph and the blue sweat suit of fail…

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ce367970c celts9

    this is ridiculous.. they’re getting every call and hitting almost every three. gotta give credit on the shooting but come on

  • Rodger

    How can david stern let this crap go on like this its so blatent its sad doc should let everybody foul out then we can forfiet game see how stern likes that.

  • jimkanicki

    cavs fan here.. really disliked this celts team but have grown to respect them hugely. ray allen in particular… as underrated as an HOF-er can be. davis is your AV. where the hell did tony allen and sheed come from? perk is a rich man’s ben wallace. no need to mention rondo and KG.
    (pierce still let’s his ego get the better of him.. he’s reliable in that way. but why go there here.)
    turns out i REALLY REALLY dislike Dhoward and ORL and their bandwagon fanbase. but damn theyre tough when lewis/pietrus/reddick are hitting 3s.
    hand with them in the first half and kill them dead tonite. pulling for you celtics!!

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ce367970c celts9

    howard hits rondo and its called on the brush on lewis

  • Alex

    Man, the Celtics are just looking like crap.
    Not only that, the Magic are hitting three’s like free throws. Our defense has downgraded.
    If this is the Celtics taking the game seriously (especially due to the fact that Garnett told the team behind doors to take this game seriously), then forget about it.
    Also, can the Celtics bloggers seriously stop jinxing the game. We sound like the Orlando fans being overconfident, which the C’s responded smacking them into a 3-0 deficit.

    OMFG….. 2 unbelievable technicals on Perk

  • Shawna

    Wow….Just Wow

  • Alex

    It’s official. The refs are giving the game to the Orlando Magic.
    That one ref is just completely biased beyond belief.
    Fuck this.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5cea40970c Josh

    Tech will be rescinded but won’t matter.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/frickenwaaaltaaah frickenWaaaltaaah

    Eddie F. Rush…don’t hang out in Boston…you know it’s bad when the broadcast crew HAS to call you out for the horrible horrible call.

  • IanD

    Oh My God, that is complete bias. That man should not be is the position he is. That is how the NBA looses credibility

  • Eric

    Tim Donaghy was right

  • Dave Cowens

    That should cost Eddie Fucking Rush his job.
    C’s need to go at Dwight Coward! What’s up with Rondo?
    Magic will cool off and C’s will make a third quarter run.

  • Rush

    dat ref should be brought out and shot.

  • DRJ

    I am preparing a list of psychiatrists, in various part of the country, for anyone who will argue that the refs did not try to steal this game, that they called this game fairly.

  • CFH

    Screw you, refs.
    That wasn’t some little bad call that can be evened out over the course of a game. That was something that had a potentially damning effect that was NOT deserved.

  • jimkanicki

    wow. brutal T on perk. frankly, refs went silly T-happy for three minutes.
    some good news (for me): celts nation — climb onboard the i hate dwight howard bandwagon. plenty of room.
    more good news: celts definitely have an us against the world thing going for them tonite.
    good news3: celts should get at least five makeup calls.
    good news4: just down 9 with magic 9-15 from 3. that can’t last. (and if it does just move on to game 6.)

    Fuck David Stern

  • jared

    What a fucking travesty. He Fuckin Turned Away! So as not to get another tech! And they give him one. This has got to be a joke or something.
    Best case scenario= Complete frickin choke job on the part of the refs, letting the pressure to contain the game get to them
    Worst case scenario= Total Fix
    Im disgusted.

    Second half, Sheldon helps the major comeback, then when walking off the floor to the silence stunned Orlando crowd, he punches Eddie Rush in the face. This is my sports fantasy.

  • Coach Bombay

    I’m shocked we made it this far into the playoffs without Eddie F Rush dicking us over again. Hopefully the NBA will be satisfied with a 6 game series, and allow the Celtics to compete in the next game. …hopefully.

  • Cs girl

    This is ridiculous! The Cs aren’t allowed to play defense or show emotion, apparently. Meanwhile, Rondo gets flattened and no calls?
    The T on Perk will be rescinded. Maybe this will get the guys in green all fired up and nasty.

  • perkins@theshowers.com

    phil collins as a motivational video? celts deserve to lose for that alone hahaha was it a toss up between that and the carpenters? are you guys all sitting in laz-e-boy recliners wearing slacks and knee high dress socks? hey here’s an idea…. at half time, put up Queen’s we will rock you…..or maybe “eye of the tiger”, that’ll get the blood pumping through those bratwurst clogged arteries.

  • perkins@theshowers.com

    like those gashouse gorillas from boston arent already one of the champion cheapshot teams around. KG should be arrested for mugging

  • Tim stille

    This game is fucking bullshit these refs are just protecting dwight howard and it just kills me to watch a game, You can tell nba refs just dont wnat to call a fair game when it coems to a superstar he can do whatever he wants, Dwight howard gets away with whatever he wnats whneevr he wants offense 3 seconds defesnsivve three during, offesne rebounds he cna hit whoever he wnats, on any block he can tackle whoever he wnats as long as he tips the ball, on any screen he can put his legs out, whenevr he touches the ball on offense he drops his shoulder and goes right into a persons body sure thats on the celtics to flop and take a charge but they cnat because they won’t call it somehow dwight can play basically the whole game and draw 100 fouls but he can never even be in foul unless he elbows poeple in the face or does tackels some1 to the ground and veen then they don’t call flagrants on him he just gets normal fouls its just terrible

  • DRJ

    That “great” block by Howard of Rondo’s layup? Did you SEE how he LANDED ON RONDO, smashing him to the ground? No foul. Great play.
    The refs are disgustingly biased, clearly out to steal this game. Surprised? Nope. There are millions of dollars at stake here, all depending on this series getting extended. But to do it SO OBVIOUSLY…. that’s just plain stupid.

  • perkins@theshowers.com

    waaaaa waaaaaa…. yeah thats a championship team fanbase. when you lose it isnt because you’re getting outplayed, its the refs isnt it. Was it the refs when the magic beat you 3 out of 4 times in the regular season? I hope you guys win because if you don’t half of you will have a frikkin stroke or soemthing

  • perkins@theshowers.com

    rondo initiated the contact there hawkeye, he gets his share of touch fouls, quit complaining. if someone farts near pierce orlando gets whistled

  • http://profile.typepad.com/6p01156f5ce367970c celts9

    no, that was the team being injured and not treating the regular season with as much importance as the postseason actually.

  • http://profile.typepad.com/frickenwaaaltaaah frickenWaaaltaaah

    Lol custom nickname guy, use your real account if you have a sack. Wait is that you Vince??

    Your team is a joke and they all know it now. SVG is actually the best coach we’ve hit so far…he had the guts to bench ~35 million of fail. This would be a good game, but the refs had no confidence in you guys and has done way too much meddling.


    C’s should do one of two things…I’d love to see them hulk out now, because the refs have really crossed a line.


    Otherwise…if I’m Doc I’m having a pow wow with Danny and Wyc about whether we have Shel knock some teeth out of Reddick. Better yet, give Howard a nice pop in the mouth and see how he likes his own medicine.

    bad calls? yes. worst call of the year? yes.

    But the league…I mean wow, this is a new low for the NBA…the whole ‘refs that manage games’ thing has gone completely off the deep end.


    People keep comparing the NBA to the WWE now, but a bad night in the WWE is ONE injury, and it’s never from somebody trying to take somebody down.


    If Howard did what he did tonight i.e. actually tried to and succeeded at taking guys out and got away with it during the show, later he’d be blacklisted from the WWE forever.


    So basically, the WWE now has more integrity than the NBA.

  • Tim stille

    and guy form orlando u make no snese at all im tyring to talk basketball im not talkng this because we were losiing i was saying it because it’s true orlando’s offense in a nutshell this year and last year dwight howard sets a moving pick doesnt get called for it rolls to the hoop and sits in the key and waits till he gets the ball or until the refs call a foul… ssomehow he can play the whole game where supposedly the refs are calling it tight accorindg to the announcers but somehow he doesn’t get one ticky tack foul on him while every single celtic big man had 3or 4 fouls by half, he has to lable someone in order for a foul to get called on him like say wat u want but im talking basketball Dwight howard is the most pampered player in the nba with refs he gets away with watever he wants because hes a superstar like talk basketball to me before you try and talk shit

  • mikey

    cheating game cancelled

  • Boston Man

    Dwight is a dirty player.
    Anybody who plays ball knows that the “Pierce shoulder throwdown” and the “Baby concussion elbow” were intentional and not natural movements in the game.

  • Rodger

    Dwight howard should have been suspended before this game for his 3 flagrents last game this is ridicoulous how many elbows did he throw tonight.
    All 3 Refs should be suspeneded permently.

  • Boston Man

    Jeff Van Gundy, just say you want the Magic to win.

  • Rodger

    This game should be played over at the point were perk got thrown out.

  • jimkanicki

    will @celticschants return?

  • Rodger

    Ban dwight howard concussions multiple elbows.

  • Anoel Shaw

    I think that Dwight Howard should be severely sanctioned for his causing Glen Davis’s concussion in the 4th game of the Celtics playoffs. I have seen him several times during the playoffs intentionally try to injure Celtics players, notably and obviously Paul Pierce. I am an attorney and feel that Dwight “Dwrongly” Howard has been guilty of assault and battery.
    In all my years of observing basketball, I have never before seen any player decked the way Glen Davis was by Dwight Howard last night. Not even a whistle or a foul called. And then but if any Celtic on the floor last night accidentally touched a Magic player, the Celtic was called for a foul last night, but nothing for the thuggish Dwight Howard. As LeBron James goes bulling around the floor, traveling uncalled at will, knocking over his opponents left and right, Dwight Howard has the star status which renders him untouched by foul calls? If one is big and brutish, as Dwight Howard is, there is an upside and there is a downside, and all players should be treated equally, and Dwight Howard should be called on his indecent and violent actions. He committed assault and battery on Glenn Davis causing a serious injury last night, but Dwrongly then and in his previous assaults and batteries on the Celtic players is unscathed by many fouls or any particular comments from the sports casters.
    I think Dwight Howard and his thuggish co-player Matt Barnes should be sanctioned severely, and at least be banned from the next playoff game. Where are the ethics of basketball? Unsportsmanlike behavior rewarded? Frankly, after last night’s violence and unfairness, I am beginning to question my continued interest in the sport. The unequal referee treatment last night, [and also particularly outrageously in some Denver games with referee home cooking against the Golden State Warriors] in the extreme was ridiculous, a travesty of justice if I have ever seen sporting injustice.
    It seemed to me that, for example, the two outrageous technicals charged to Celtic Kendrick Perkins, then the foul near the end of the game given to Celtic Rasheed Wallace when it was that thug D. Howard who was more to blame, as Dwrongly kept trying to tie up R. Wallace, and on and on and on, makes one think the referees are following a NBA desire just to keep the playoffs going on by giving all the breaks to the Magic and ridiculously unbased fouls to the Celtics, which is extremely demoralizing (as again when a technical was called up Rajon Rondo, for just politely questioning a point) when a player realizes that they can not take any risks at all as another unjust foul will be called. Such unfairness dampens the spirit of a team, especially when the opposing team is liberated to take risks by being given carte blanche to foul away and give concussions and hard knocks to the Celtics. It is really sickening, depressing and sad.
    And letting that horrible Dwight Howard get away with mayhem and dirty sneaky tricky underhanded violent hurtful actions against the Celtics, so the two Celtics who had been posting Dwrongly down during the first three games of the playoffs when Dwrongly Howard tried to post up feebly, were suddently out the game — one on phony technicals, and the other with a Dwrongly-imposed concussion? The Celtics’ Kryptonite that rendered Dwrongly Howard extremely unsuper in the form of Glenn Davis and Kendrick Perkins during the first 4 games are suddenly (and not so mysteriously) both are out of the game, and then Dwrongly regains some of his “powers” — that is not basketball sportsmanship — that is verging on the criminal.
    I would like to see Dwight “Dwrongly” Howard sanctioned for his unsportsmanlike behavior to say the least, verging on criminal behavior by the NBA. [I in my heart of hearts would like never to see him again in a NBA game, but realize that some people like him.]
    Also, no matter how big and strong and talented a basketball player is, star status should not render him immune from foul calls. Dwrongly and LeBron should be treated just like all the other players. When they travel, mete out hard fouls, bull their way around the court, they should be called for those actions just as other players are. No star status immunity from fouls and sanctions….
    When a game is as unfairly and meanly played as last night’s Celtics’ game, sportscasters should take notice of it, and call out the NBA, the players who are so unsportsmanlike, and the referees who are so extremely and ridiculously biased. If there is no fairness and accountability for violence, there is no fun, and there is no game. Does basketball have to degenerate and devolve into a mafia like street gangish situation with corrupt officials? How can families enjoy such games? What is such behavior, as Dwrongly’s, teaching our children?

    I would like to see Dwrongly’s misbehaving and meanness eliminated from basketball. Fairness and fun and justice should rule on the court, not underhanded barbaric violent cheating and unfairness as displayed last night, with Dwrongly being the epitome thereof.
