Agreed he played poorly - at one stage he really looked down in the dumps while some ft's were being shot - he then went coast to coast for a layup, next thing his arm went...I think he knows when he's a passenger for the team and he realised it then. Lets face it - he was more active after the injury than before it...

EYE ON THE ENEMY - FEATURING CHRIS BOSH RISING TO THE CHALLENGE - Who the fuck wrote that?? haha!! Great game from the boys. KG was a beast. Pierce was Pierce. The bench was PANTS in the first half , but Green, West and Baby (with some big boards)came to play in the 2nd. Where was Bosh?? He never guarded KG all night?? Even after Anthony got drilled a new one Bosh never guarded him. These boys gotta back it up now. Rondo and West will split minutes now I reckon and that ain't a bad thing. IMO Rondo dislocating an elbow tops Schilling with a bleeding foot. He had 2pts 7 assists and 5 TO's with 2 hands, 4 pts, 4 assists and no TO's with one!! Could well be the turning point in the series...

I'd actually rather we face Miami than Orlando in Rd 2. Howard's playing his ass off at the moment and unless Shaq can get back to somewhere near full fitness, he'll eat our front line alive and our D isn't as good as it was chasing down 3 pt shooters... Would be handy to have home court vs the superfriends though....

Of course he is - doesn't throw anyone under the bus to motivate them like Zen Meister

Is it just me or does Doc contradict himself - I don't blame anyone - it's their responsibility.....' kinda like it's no one's fault but it's them who've gotta pull finger.... Having said that - he's dead right! Is this the last flat patch before the playoffs? As fans we hate it when they put in poor effort - but 82 games - they're guaranteed a high playoff spot and know they can beat anyone on the road.... Not saying I agree with it but perhaps some cruise control has crept in...

I think you're reading too much into the KG soft thing. I thought it was a good bit of coaching and it worked! Thre is real trouble though and blowing a lead in the 4th to a crap team is a BAD sign. As for KG shooting 6-8 - you're right - he needs to demand the ball but it's not really the way the c's play - they pass it round and shoot when someone's open. It's not often they go to KG in the post exclusively to exploit anything. VERY frustrating loss and there better be some kind of players only shitstorm meeting to sort this crap out.

As for TA - he can do what he wants. He must be so happy starting and contributing as much as he is for a contender. Basically he's never played better. Had 19-11-6 and 6 steals the other day...

Not only the offence - the D is worse too - this is a pivotal period in the era of the big 3. If they don't get this shit sorted soon we're not gonna be title contenders.

...and this is why he's my favourite player of all time - not without his faults for sure but no one demands more of himself....

Baby has no iron jaw - that's for sure. He gets a tap to the head he goes down like a sack of spuds....

The good thin g about 'Nads' is his hands - he has excellent hands - will catch anything in his vicinity and Rondo already trusts that. Perk (bless his soul) was good for one duff play a game cos of hard hands. The worrying thing is his rebounding numbers. I'd be happy if we got 12-6 outa Nads but already 6 might be too much to expect... As for defensively - well the Bucks got 83 - that's better than the 100+ we've been giving up since the trade....

Murphy is a volume rebounder - I repeat Murph is a volume rebounder. Other than KG who else rebounds for us??? That's why we need him....as a bonus he can hit the jumper and so u can't leave him. He's an excellent signing.

Murphy is a volume rebounder - I repeat Murphy is a volume rebounder, KG is the only other rebounder we have. Shaq gets 5, JO - none yet, Kristic will get a few. Murphy has been a 10 board guy for most of his career. And don't get Spears and Stein mixed up. One guy knows his shit the other doesn't.

Does anyone know if Perk's Dad is ok? I thought he lived in Christchurch. Life is truly miserable here in NZ at the moment - anyway - the poor bugger getting traded and then his Dad's either current or old home city is flattened.....

I'm gonna try and justify this... TRY being the operative word. Perk may have bolted - he also had bung knees and after a few games starined the same knee he screwed before. He was the C's Bynum, except we loved him. I don't buy the 'Green will shit himself when KG goes for him' shit - he's a talented player who's never had to play D in his life - just like Nate didn't have to... KG will get him on side and turn him into a great player rather than just a scorer. Remember Larry Johnson? Was a scorer in Charlotte playing for a run and gun team. Then went to the Knicks and used to guard everyone from Duncan to Penny Hardaway to McGrady because JVG made him a stopper. Green is athletic - there's no reason why he can't be a good defender. Put it this way - they won't LET him be a bad one.... As for the big man situation....um...Chris Johnson has 3 blocks already!!!!

It's not a shot at Bosh - he played well. Good to see KG blogging more.

Absolutely gave up too much. They have Amare, Melo, Chauncey, scrubs and.....Isiah Thomas. Poor Knicks fans.... The Knicks are now like a poor man's Heat.

Firstly there was some great dunks this year - hardly any duds at all. Blake won cos he's Blake. DeRozan's 2nd dunk was the best. Secondly - can someone get rid of the Millers?? They're painful talking about each other and they're both boring as planks.

He had 37 and 17 in that game - what a ridiculous trophy.....

Used to be Al - I'm signing in here using a yahoo account so using my real name. Agreed about ToTheRuins - he disappeared just as KG started playing better!!
