View Full Version : As Boston (27-2) makes NBA history, fans chant BEAT LA!!!

As the Boston Celtics dominated the Sixers to go up 28-2 and in the process have the best start in NBA history, fans chanted Beat LA. Which begs the question, are Boston fans happier with a beat down on LA or the record just created? I think this rivalry is the best thing that can happen to the NBA this season. Although the Lakers are having some tough times presently, they will be ready for that game. Lets all stay tuned, Kobe might just prove after all that he is still relevant.

Your take on the Xmas day game

as a sixers fan u gotta tip ur hat to the cetics.

but Garnett NEEDS to stop being so cocky. i used to like him but now hes just getting overboard and getting out of control. hes a great player but the constant mocking and unneccesary vulgarity is just tarnishing his reputation. just collect ur wins and show some class KG, what happened to u man???

i got the utmost respect for the celts, but please, show some class.

but apparently, thats a tough thing to accomplish in boston, first the pats now this. hopefully karma doesnt come back to get the celtics like it did the patriots.

Boston improved to 27-2 -- the best start for a two-loss team in NBA history.

The 19-game winning streak broke the franchise set by the original Big Three in 1981-82.

as Pierce, KG and the rest of the Celtics have said...its just another game. You don't get anything for win streaks or winning on Christmas.

the Celtics should win bc of their physicality and the lakers have shown that even against weak eastern teams, they struggle.

win or lose? really doesnt matter bc its 1 game out of 82. sorry for downplaying it, but it is wat it is. the Celtics are not going to do anything out of the ordinary. our starters arent going to play extra minutes to beat la.

Jerry west, GM of memphis, gave pau gasol away for free. Jerry west also handed the mvp trophy to kobe. anyway, the nba wants the lakers to have a close record to the celtics. the only real way that the lakers win is that if the game is fixed

Yes having the refs on your side, the league on your side and getting away with a ton of fouls is called defence. The lakers have bynum now so its even harder, hopefully the celtics dont play dirty d like they do and everyone knows their taught to play dirty d without getting called fouls since the league has horrible double standard for foul calls. :smoking:

basketball is a dirty sport. u have to be physical and man up. notice the lakers still losen to the East Coast. Detriot came into your house and slapped the lakers around. detriot couldnt hang with Boston for 10 mins in 2 games this year.

Wouldn't surprise me if the Lakers won. They have played pretty darn well themselves. Two of their games were almost coin flips on the final shots (Pacers and Heat games). Anyways, Celtics have to travel all the way across the country and continue to play amazing. The Lakers want redemption from the Finals and they have the home court this game. I'm going with LA.

What's so special about those players? Yeah, Kobe is a great player. Other than that, what else? Gasol? he is alright. Bynum? Over-hyped. Others, nothing really special. Odom is a big factor against Boston or any other games. If it is going to be a close game, it is up to him to miss those free throws so that the other team can win! LMAO!

Lakers is a good team but nothing compared to Celtics. Laker fans always over hype their team. When they were doing their run, it's like they are unbeatable. Tsk. Did you guys see what tiny town did to your famous frontcourt? Hahahaha....

I am not a fan of both teams but I think the Celtics can back up what their fans are saying rather than the Lakers.

This game may be hyped as a huge game, but for both of these teams it is just another regular season game. No matter what team wins, they will still most likely have to beat the other team another 4 times in the finals. I could actually see both teams playing it carefully so they dont give anything away.

haha, anyways. My view on this game is that if the lakers dont at least make it a close game down the strecth, its really sad. I say that because they were the favorites in most people eyes coming into this year, then all the hype around this game all year. Also, Boston is streaking, and the game is in LA, and LA wants revenge badly. So, with all those things that should be motivating LA to play hard and PHYSICAL. I expect this to be a close game.

The Celtics don't really have to prove anything. They're better than the Lakers, even if they lose on Christmas, which I doubt, they are still the better team right now. I've been watching Bynum, he's a decent player, but I don't think he will do that well vs. Boston.

Can we look at facts. Bynum played HORRIBLE when guarded by Perk. Before the season Bynum said he cant wait to play the celts because he had his worse games against us. It will be no different come sunday. Lakers keep it close until half time. 3rd quarter(CELTICS QUARTER) is wherew the C's will pull ahead and not look back. At the Half the C's can regroup, calm down and win it.

It meant something for the Celtics, it just meant a lot more for the Lakers. Afterall the Lakers won 2 of 3 at home against the Celtics in the finals last year. They still need to show they can win in Boston since it looks like Boston may end up with the better record this year as well.
