The Celtics Big defenders are KG, Brandon Bass, and Hollins. They do not play stesma (sp) anymore. Again i repeat: KG, Bass and Hollins. KG does not want to get in foul trouble and Bass is a younger version of Elton Brand!

For every hundered artlcles i read about Bradley and Allen paying through pain i hear nothing about Brand.

I hope he can turn back the time, use those 2 days of rest and put up 10 points. via free throw line or rebounding.

I think Allen will have a target on his back once he comes in. Just have to play strong and force contested jumpers.

I can't wait to get booed sitting up at the Garden!!!

You don't think Rondo is a good on the ball defender? Just a steals guy?

Yeah, he's a gambler, to me. Doesn't really stop penetration, plays passing lanes and reaches for tips.

On the key drive that Turner beat him and Pierce for the layup, he gave up a path to the hoop (and a good foul) for a swipe.

Everybody here (Mass) thinks he plays great D cuz he blocks a shot every once in a while in spectacular fashion & gets steals. He does seem to swipe a lot.

Boston radio is F'ing hilarious today. The banter rages from "it's the refs..." to complete arrogance as if the Sixers don't even belong on the same court! I hope the Six just runs them to death tonight. Start it with tough play on the defensive end and ignite the transition.

Dan Lebatard from Miami was talking about how Miami will need Chris Bosh "for Boston." I'm getting the idea that people think Friday night was a fluke. The Sixers won with defense, rebounding (52 - 38!) and stamina. And a much better bench.

They're wearing out Boston and people don't see it.

And the sixers got creamed just two days earlier.

People can't criticize the media if they act in exactly the same way.

It's a best of 3 series, and the celtics have home court advantage...each team has won a close game and a blow out.

Playoff experience tends to win out in the NBA (because the refs are on their side maybe that's up to you). I see nothing wrong with people thinking the Celtics are going to win this series, I think they're going to win the series

Picking a team to win is fine. I would never argue a person's opinion who says "I think the Celtics win the series". But the arrogance of the boston media and fans is unwarranted. This is not the same team that we saw in the finals a few years back.

Boston Media and fans support their team, I get that it's a novel concept for Philadelphia sports fans, to have a media on your teams side, but that's how it works in most cities.

Who cares what another cities fans think? Really the collective 'fan insecurity' of Philadelphia is downright sad

All that should matter to you is what YOU believe, what others believe is irrelevant (unless of course you're a psychotic or sociopath, then what you believe is frightening and scary). As long as you are strong in your belief in whatever, what other people think shouldn't matter.

The fact that it would matter just indicates your belief in said issue isn't as strong as your words indicate.

A patented Lou settling for a too deep shot that was contested. Shit.

Gave 2 pts back over the final 6+ min. Not too bad, but so many opportunities to push the lead up that were squandered.

PHI 50, BOS 47 at the half.

Feel like the Sixers really bought time in that second quarter. First w/ the Turner/Meeks/Lou back court, then when Lavoy went out with his second foul. Need a quick start to the third, and then a strong close. No big runs yet in this game.

I get the sense that Boson is exerting a ton to try and counter-punch the Sixers, but the Sixers have maintained the lead. If somehow the Sixers could get some separation then I'm not sure how much Boston has in the tank.

Although on the road the reverse can happen if Boston makes a run and can feed of the crowd's adrenaline.

Totally agree on BOS exerting themselves and still down, that's why I was hollering for them to get a cushion the last half of that 2nd quarter.

On the bright side:

- Pierce and KG both played 20 minutes.

Play that pissed me off was the offensive rebound Ray Allen got. I don't even remember if they wound up scoring on the play, but that ball was right in the middle of four sixers and none of them went after it. Can't have that shit.

You have to assume EB will be incognito in this 2nd half considering the 1st half he put up. Someone is going to have to pick up that slack scoring-wise.

The last two halves we've scored 101 points. Attack, run, attack some more, run, run, run. We're finally scoring at a decent clip, don't give them open jumpers and make your free throws and they're coming home up in this series.

Man, that quarter couldn't have gone worse. Down 9 is doable. Let them push it to 15 early and you're done. Show some fucking spine here, you turned to jelly in the third.

The thing that bothers me is this has been a prolonged implosion, not a quick one, but just drawn out. They never could get it together, just kept self-destructing, either by unforced (kind of) turnovers or over-helping on D leading to open interior, extra passes from the C's.

This must be the 14th or 15th time this season where the team just goes stone cold for a quarter+ stretch, including about 4 or 5 times in the playoffs alone. Have to find a way to get through those droughts. Happening at the worst time here.

Need to run after every stop and rebound. If we get any. Have to jumpstart the offense.

Lavoy.

Didn't realize Jrue had 4 turns, remember two, but didn't think he had as many as Thad. Maybe b/c Thad's were so stupid.

The first was on a pass into the lane to Thad that was out of his reach. Then he had two in a row, the second when Pierce grabbed AI9. Then another a couple of minutes ago when he was trying to get the ball into the lane and pietrus jumped the pass.

this sums it up

That was pretty bad! it seemed like the tide turned after Iggy bricked those two free throws. Having said that they started doubling for no reason and the celtics picked them apart with easy baskets.

The Sixers couldn't drive down the lane without getting hit, and the whistle's were silent. Lou got jacked by Steemsa! I wouldn't mind the no calls and the "letting them play" if the other end wasn't so ridiculous!

My Celtic friend felt guilty...but having said that, they lost this game because of bad defense and turnovers. The foul bs sucked, but it wasn't the main reason they lost
