At least the balloons were put towards a good purpose. Days later, Cooke donated them to Children`s Hospital LA. Best part of that game...every time Hondo "failed" in the 4th quarter, the Lakers paid a huge price. Chamberlain injured his leg while rebounding Hondo`s missed shot with 5:45 remaining. With 1:17 remaining, Erickson snuck up and knocked the ball out of Hondo`s hand, while he was dribbling. It turned into a perfect pass to Nellie, who hit his famous shot just as the 24 second clock was about to expire. Good Times!

Barry has hated Boston since 1992...when they drafted him in the first round. He refused to play for the Celtics, and was traded to Milwaukee without ever playing here.

Tough night all around : E`Twaun Moore missed the first FT of his career {had been 7-for-7}

Celtics : Good Job! Good Effort!

I don`t really see the KG-Kareem comparison. Kareem was still the most feared player in the NBA when Magic arrived, but was uninspired and bored. Magic was the missing piece the team needed, and he revitalized Kareem`s passion for the game. With KG, the passion was never missing, but his health was. For the first time since 2008, KG is 100% healthy. KG now looks very similar to the KG of 2008. Since the day he arrived here, Boston`s fortunes are purely defined by KG`s health. As KG goes, the Celtics go. Rondo is playing great, but not any different than last year. Health {not Rondo} is the reason for KG`s resurgence.

Rondo somehow hit Peaches right on the numbers! Brought a tear to my eye! Can I get an amen?

Very true! The kid was probably just repeating the exact words he`s heard many times, from his Little League coach, after striking out to end the game.

Paul Pierce and the 1998 Draft : NINE players were selected ahead of this absolute treasure!!! Inconceivable then...Inconceivable now

Make no mistake...the fans who felt "severe pessimism" were NOT delusional! Exactly 100% of the early season news was dark, dreary and depressing : Green...Wilcox...JO...David West snatched from our hands...the 5-9 start...the 15-17 record in late Feb....virtually every win coming against the dregs of the league, etc. Yes, things did turn around...but, until early March, there was no visible evidence that it would.

Bosh has not played in 27 days...he might be in shape, but not "game-shape". If Boston can withstand the early, emotionally charged storm Miami will throw at them...this will be a long, grueling night for the Heat.

Bosh last played on May 9. He cannot be in "game shape" after sitting for 27 days, nor will he be much of a factor. The Celtics have now put a lot of pressure on Miami these past three games, and you know they will not let up. They could blow this series wide open if they could only get one more unexpected "break"....be it a great flashback shooting performance from Pietrus or Allen, or a twisted ankle suffered by Wade, etc. .
1 reply
Agreed. I`ll take the "Orlando Pietrus" over the "Boston Pietrus" any day of the week!

As for KG, the Lakers are a concern. He enjoys SoCal enough to own a home in Malibu. If Gasol gets traded {as rumored}, LA might be the perfect spot for KG...to try to win with Kobe, Bynum, and whoever Gasol brings in return.

It`s not even an issue...KG is definitely coming back! This is the best he`s looked since 2008.

The Celtics have nothing to lose. They have already overcome every adversity one can imagine this year, and they are still only one of four teams still alive in June. They will unleash even greater fury in Game 3, in light of what happened last night. And, let`s not forget...The Celtics are still only ONE D-Wade twisted ankle away from going to The Finals! It could still happen.

The Celtics must to come up with something creative and unconventional to catch Miami off-guard. However, Doc has already decided that he will cross his fingers, start a decrepit Ray Allen, and go down with the sinking ship.
1 reply
Ray Allen has as much business starting in this series as a 75 year old man who has never touched a basketball! However, Doc`s sense of loyalty has already made the decision for him that he will sink or swim with Allen. In January against Orlando, E. Moore made the unforgivable mistake of coming off the bench, as a rookie, and turning in a phenomenal performance. Doc "rewarded" him by banishing him to the bench for the remainder of the season.

This play is the NBA`s equivalent to "The Drive"...orchestrated by John Elway, also in 1987. Legendary athlete...super clutch play/performance...turns playoff defeat into victory...team goes onto the Finals/Super Bowl...eventually falls short of winning the ring.

Let go of 2012, Celtic fans....Get ready to party next year!!! The Celtics always win a championship exactly TWO years after the Cardinals win a World Series. 1964 Cards...1966 Celtics 1967 Cards...1969 Celtics 1982 Cards...1984 Celtics 2006 Cards...2008 Celtics 2011 Cards...

Losing Game 7 is a very very real possibility. They would be remembered as a Celtic team that {once again} was forced to deal with ridiculous adversity that never affects NBA athletes {Green, Wilcox}...staged a great second-half revival spearheaded by KG and the emergence of Bradley....then finally succumbed to a crazy injury to Bradley that never affects 21 year old guards.
1 reply
Bradley played a huge role in Boston`s late season success. Losing him is an absolute killer! Blowing the 18 point lead in Game 4 might very well have cost Boston the series...I can definitely see Philadelphia winning Game 7. Ray Allen has had a career anyone would kill for. It`s now time for him to do the "honorable" thing, and announce his retirement.

How can anyone take an organization like Orlando seriously...when they are considering Shaq for the GM position???

"Bluer than the deep blue sea"...Rondo, standing motionless, calmly preparing to shoot a FT.

Sorry, but KG was dead wrong to label Philadelphia sports fans as "fair-weathered". KG should have called them what they really are..."vile, disgusting, sub-human mutants"! These are the same Philly fans who cheered wildly in 1999, as Michael Irvin laid motionless on the ground after suffering a career ending neck injury. The same fans who required Vet Stadium to install an on-site jail to house those arrested during games. The same fans who, 45 years ago, repeatedly caused game delays by tossing eggs onto the court during the Celtic-76er ECF.
