KG had only 2 fouls called against him in 40 minutes on Saturday and one of them was a gimmie against Brand. Hard to believe that such an intense and active defender can play a game with only 1 foul called against him.

If i am collins. I am attacking KG at all times. Even it takes them out of their jump shooting plays. Either get him tired or get him in foul trouble.

Please force the issue. dribble drive, draw KG and then pass to hawes or Allen for a contested layup.

Please come strong boys...no scoops from 3 feet out!

I agree with your comments, here's hoping the Celtics take that national media perspective seriously. I'm looking for Collins to step up his in game coaching tonight. I'd like an 8 point win tonight, not needing the excitement of a last second finish this time.

Let's wear 'em out this week while the games are still every other day.

What scares me the most about game 1 is that the sixers made more 3's, had more second chance points, held Pierce to 3 FG's, had the lead after the 1st, 2nd and 3rd quarters and still lost.

I agree that the national media thinks that was the sixer's only chance in Boston. Maybe they are right. I really really want them to prove all these arrogant Boston fans wrong.

Living in Boston, people don't really care about this series. They are waiting for the next round too!

I hope the sixers can make them notice them tonight with a huge win! A win tonight would be the biggest sixers win since game 1 in LA.

Drive more
get to the line
make your free throws

Serioiusly - it was a pretty evenly matched game down the board last time except the sixers were 70% from the line - gotta be better

elton brand NEEDS to show up tonight that will be huge to have him be a presence. collins also must have a short leash on lou tonight or we will be doomed

Barry apparently thinks the Sixers are going to get swept. They blew their only chance at getting a win in game 1.

He's been anti-sixers from the start of these playoffs. Nobody on the sixes slept with his brother's wife.

Aaand we're off, that was quick. Hawes loses the tip.

Garnett hits a baseline J. Not sure how he got so wide open. Rondo on Jrue, Bradley on Turner.

Alright, three shots in the lane, four if you count the brand missed tip. Calm down.

Settle and weather it. Good time out.

Not the start I wanted to see, but the start I expected to see. Last game was just too good for our sake the way we came out in that one.

Since you have no faith in this teams ability to win against any team in the playoffs (even though they have done so - and even beat the celtics 2 out of 3 in the regular season) why do you watch these games?

Seems to be a good idea to insert Lou, I don't think he's micromanaging. He's making Doc adjust to Rondo or Bradley to being able to guard Lou's penetration ability.

And taking out one of the best defenders on the team for a streaky gunner who doesn't pass

Yes - that makes sense - get in a shoot out

Yeah his 1-4 has relly ignited the offense. Fucking bullshit, you should never take out a starter that early in the game unless he did something awful.

agree - kind of like Gibson in Chicago, who's a lot better than Boozer. Lavoy already looks like a better shooter than EB, who hasn't shot well in years.

I didn't see where he hurt them, he got into the lane several times, just didn't finish, he didn't kill them on D as he was on Rondo. He took a terrible 3 there at the end but floor spacing was terrible and he had to end up rushing it.

Doug just said ET 'got hit' early? did he mean giving up that Bradley 3 or hit literally?

If this game becomes the Lou show, Doug Collins should be fucking fired.

I always worry about these games where guys like Lavoy (or Vuce) seem like their most effective player, because I doubt it is sustainable. They need their primary offensive contributions to come from guys like Jrue, ET, Thad and EB.

He better not start the second quarter with Turner, Meeks, Lou on the perimeter.

And of course he does just that. Fuck me.

this backcourt will not end well

Tie ballgame.

Offensive foul on Allen, nice. Take the fucking lead.

Doug said Turner got hit, that's why he was pulled. What does he mean by "hit"?

Frustrating thing about that half was we held them to around 29 pts in about 22 minutes, only allowed 13 in 2nd quarter, no one, and I mean no one, is killing us from their lineup, starters or bench, and we're still down. Free throws are next to nil for both teams.

We just have to shoot better, or better yet take better shots and don't be so quick to settle. The defense is above par to this point.

If they take bad jumpers 9 times instead of turning the ball over 9 times, the offense looks a lot better right now. Probably hit at least 3 of them.

WTF was the Dre? thanks for the tip in Lou!! come on

LAVOY!!!!!!!!!

Webber....nuff said.

Whoa Lou with the huge tip in. That was some crazy elevation.

Hahaa Stiemsa with the long jumper on the other end.

YEESSSSSSSSSSS Lavoy! He has been so solid this playoffs. Please leave him in there for the rest of the game.

Lavoy Allen is the Sixers' steadiest player. Who woulda thunk it?

Lavoy with another sick defensive play. When the Sixers actually score, they are an incredibly tough team. This defense is just beautiful to watch.

like somebody else just said, I hope he plays the rest of the game. (But can he match Ryan Hollins energy? That's what Chris Webber wants to know.)

Great defense by both teams, Sixers a little better right now.

Lavoy should have kicked that back out.

Celtics - 25 pts 1st quarter.

Celtics - 24 pts 2nd -AND- 3rd quarter.

One more.

PHI 57, BOS 49 after three.

PUT THEM AWAY.

HUGE end to that quarter we need to keep this fucking intensity up the entire 4th. CANT LET UP or else they will come back %100

Can't tighten up in this one.

And Collins has to stick with defense. No Hawes/Lou/Thad BS.

So what did i miss on the illegal screen call on Dre, yet no foul(earlier in the game)? did they not call the screen?

They changed it to three seconds or something.

it was changed to stepping out of bounds or something. The ref checked with C Webb who said he didn't love that moving screen, so he changed it.

I'd switch the 4 and 5 now. Get Lavoy and Brand back, Lavoy at least to play KG. Doug gambled with this lineup, and lost. Cut your losses.

Not a reply, sorry. That was a bad double too. I'd give Turner the hook. Small backcourt with Dre LAVOY and Brand/Thad.

Lavoy has played KG very well. He doesn't jump on the pump fakes and is a strong body.

Gotta play offense with a purpose. Multiple pick and rolls. Active bigs.

OK, attack. Attack. Attack!

No flow, but come on Evan. Put one away.

I'm still frusttrated they went to a soft lineup to start the qtr. I know they have to sub people in, but Lou/Thad/Hawes can't be on the floor. It is what kick-started the Celtics, and now they can't slow them down. They gave life to a team that was dead,,, 3 games in a row now all for the same reason.

Can't throw out soft line-ups in the playoffs when you have a lead.

Get a hoop here, come on.
