If everyone brings the warrior attitude of the guy who will be presenting the game ball to the refs tonight, there will be a Game 7.

Haslem suspended for Heat Pacers Game six, I wonder if the pacers will remember roy hibbert is on their team?

It's just messed up. Serge Ibaka is a great shot blocker, but he's not an all defensive player. Perkins is the better defensive player in that back-court. Then Chris Paul over Rondo? And what's is Kobe doing on this 2nd team?

steals + blocks != great defender...

yea!!! hawes is starting- no one

Great. So we'll probably see Lavoy check in at 6:00 mark, when KG checks out.

also joey crawford is one of the refs tonight

So furious right now about Iguodala being left off the all-defensive team. Not just because I still crave national respect for our Sixers(can't help it) but for Iguodala himself. He really deserves that honor. Kobe? Are you fucking kidding me?

On the plus side, maybe Iggy uses that to bring a little something extra against Pierce(not that he shouldn't already be doing that tonight).

this might be AI9 last game as a sixer

Yep. Iguodala, Hawes, Lou, Lavoy, Brand, Meeks. Pretty good shot some of those guys will be gone. Turner, Jrue and Thad, even.

We really don't need to double KG with EB on him 20 ft from the hoop.

Even though Garnett hasn't scored, we still have to double team with without Lavoy in the game. That will probably come back to haunt us.

Problem with long Dre jumpers is, that no ones is back on the break. One of the worst shots the Sixers can take if the guards are not ready to stay in front of their man.

Boston's shooting like crap, no way that continues. Or the Sixers shooting sustaining this shooting. Have to get to the line more, or what has become a rarity it seems, make a three or two or three.

So Lou/Meeks/Turner here to start the second quarter? Man, I hope not. Iguodala had to sit w/ the fouls, put him right back in.

I feel like if you're within 2 feet of Bass when he shoots those jumpers, he can't hit. When he's wide open, he can't miss.

Joey Crawford knows better than to give KG that one. 3 on Lavoy. See you at the end of the 3rd. I'd give anything if he'd just dust Battie off for a brief run.

Any chance we see Battie in this game? He played good D for the Sixers in his rare minutes this year.

Just leave Lavoy in. If he fouls out he fouls out. Rather that than letting him languish on the bench all game.

We've got the lead, I say save him til the stretch run.

Yeah that worked out great last time. By the time he came back in, the Sixers were down big.

user-pic
Jesse reply to GoSixers on May 23 at 21:03

Yeah you missed the point completely. Garnett is in the game, so you play Lavoy. Let him rest (and not get fouls) when Garnett comes out. This isn't that hard to comprehend.

You think a guy with three fouls in the first half should continue to play - it's an asinine principle - period

"Lavoy Allen alone to win"

What the hell are you talking about. He isn't Lebron James. You don't need to save him for the whole second half or anything. You need him in there to guard Garnett, so you shadow his minutes. OH NO BUT WHAT IF LAVOY ALLEN FOULS OUT AT THE END OF THE GAME!!! I'm not going to continue to argue with someone who can't get past simplistic, conventional thinking. The last game was lost while Lavoy Allen was on the bench in the middle third of the game and Bass went off because we didn't have two legitimate bigs in to defend.

This game does not feel right at all. The attacking team is not being rewarded. Celtics settling for jumpers and leading.

Well, they had the Boston small lineup, and Collins decided to go small against it after about 30 second. After having so much success w/ Thad at the four against it in game 4.

Horseshit offense from all of our guards here. Doug's getting Thad back in to get another screener in.

just awful. what are they gonna do in the 3rd quarter to change this, shoot 3s? That'll work. The only thing that's worked well is Jrue going into the paint. Hard to do that from the bench though.

of course, we close the quarter with a bad 3-pt attempt by our worst 3-point shooter. and we didn't score out of the previous time out. I think we're 0 for 4.

EB w/ PP on him and he passes it out to Jrue? F me.

This is why you need Jrue handling instead of Hawes. He can make plays for his teammates - like that pick and roll with Brand. He's a point guard.

AI9 three was halfway down.

Keep doing that, Jrue.

I know! I had the same thought.

Celtics 15/15 from the line. Sixers 6/14.

That just really discouraging - I mean they're bad at free throw shooting sure - but not sure what the hell is going on tonight - seems they're not following their rhythms - forcing them up

Not sure why ET and Jrue are not the primary initiators. So much more life when they attack vs Iggy playing pt or passing through Hawes.

Yep. Don't get it at all.

If the sixers get a little run all the Cs do is go to KG or PP and they flail their arms and get the call regardless. Fuckin refs are such a joke.

Can we sign Dragic for Lou's money?

Not unless they waive Brand

yea but someone will offer him more to start

Box Rondo out!!!!! Somebody!

That's on Iguodala. He's on Rondo there. That's twice this quarter he's gotten a putback.

Jrue to the line.

Where is Chuck to say that Rondo getting offensive boards is negligent?

Wtf

Dre really played poorly on the defensive end.

He's played very well defensively for most of the series - he had one bad play - some players (hawes) have sucked defensively for years

user-pic
Phil reply to GoSixers on May 23 at 21:53

But he has not played well tonight. He got abused by Pierce early and lost his man a couple of times after a switch. Then he fouled Pierce on a 3 pointer. That's not typical for Dre.

That was a great rotation by Brand.

Of course you thought Paul got hit, because he screamed like a cunt and they always call that.

We should be up 12. Make it 18, if we shoot league average from the line.

End of 4trs.

Missed FTs.

That could be the difference.

I still don't get why you'd play Rondo so close. Once he hits two long jumpers in a row, you can start thinking about closing in.

Can they hold the lead now? I'd love to see Doug call the timeout as soon as the lead shrinks to 5.

But first: Please score out of the timeout. No turnover, just play a solid possession.

If Turner cant hit 3's or FT's, and he cant hit 5 footers, then I hope he finishes his college degree because he'll need it.

Too close for comfort here, nerves going haywire.

Good timeout. 4-0 run for Boston after the Sixers stretched their lead to 11. Need a hoop here. And I'd love for the refs to not just hand the Celtics a comeback here with bullshit fucking calls whenever Pierce makes an unathletic drive.

Run offense for the love of God! Even if it's a ball screen!

Sixers allowed so many offensive rebounds and miss half of their free throws. It's getting hard to blame this game on the bad officiating.
