Cavs in 5. Celtics are old slow and Ray Allen just throws up shots anymore. The Celtics dont have a edge at any position but point guard and thats becuase MO doesnt know how to play D. The only reason the Bulls hung on was becuase we got lacks on offense and started playing LeBron you do it all ball.

Ray Allen throws up shots, one of the smartest players in his generation throws up shots, is that why he is shooting over 50% from the 2 and the 3 point line...Cus u know I hate numbers like that :D

Yes he is shooting 50% from the field, but who was guarding him that entire series? Carlos Arroyo/Wade running up and down the court giving the Heat the only offense they had?/The hot dog guy/ Mario Chalmers please.... Comparing the talent the Cavs have with that of the Heat is like compairing the Bulls of the 90's to this years Nets, Allens FG% will drop and he will look more like the 16PPG 36% shooter he was durring the season.

Shaq won't play more than 20 min. per game. Considering he isn't that good anymore, I don't think he is in position to shut anyone up. (And I love Shaq - just sayin...)

No the Miami Heat and Nets comparison was over the top....The Bulls were better than these Cavs and the Heat won 47 games and the Nets are one of the worst in history...Yea you can say that, but then he also was guarding Mr. Wade a whole bunch...Ray Allen will average 17-18 pts and shoot 45% or better from the filed.

I think boston will win it in seven games because of there defense which aside from a couple of epic games from dwade was solid against miami ... and although its proven to be nearly impossible i think doc rivers will have some schemes to atleast slow down lebron, i think jamison will have a tough series with kg on him, perkins should be able to handle shaq and allen and rondo both have advantages at their positions essentially i think it all comes down to if the celtics can hold down lebron.

Sorry but this is a stupid post. IF it were a 49 minute game they would have won? It wasn't. An NBA game is 48 minutes long. I say Celtics in 7, but I am a Celtics fan. C's fans say the C's will win, Cavs fans say they are going to win.

1: Yeah because 1 game against a team is the reason a team will get swept.
2: 1 time Rasheed Wallece tipped it on accident and that is a reason they will get swept.
3: Yeah because regular season success is all that matters.
4: And? So do the Celtics. And the differences in the teams isn't much besides Jamison and Shaq and Shaq will hurt them more than it will help them off the pick and roll.

Wow...just wow.

1. Yeah, because losing one game during the regular season means a whole lot. The Spurs lost to New Jersey and then beat Dallas in six, so I don't see your point.

2. You have got to be kidding me. If you're using Nate Robinson's one childish move while he was playing for the Knicks as an advantage for Cleveland, then God help the Cavaliers, because they're going to need it.

3. If that were the case, then why bother even having a postseason every year? We should just anoint every team that finishes with the best record as the champion.

4. This is the only part of your post that makes any sense, but using that as your reasoning as to why Cleveland is going to beat Boston is silly and insufficient.

Shaq slows the Cavs down and allows our D to get set. Put him out there all game, please! The Cavs without Shaq would have a better time against us.

I say if the Cavs take Games 1 & 2, we won't be able to recover with a series win. However, if the C's take either of these first two games (I think they are going to win tonight) they will win the series.

Yeah I agree, Rondo will worry me like Rose did in the first round.

We were really able to limit him in the second half by putting the bigger body of Anthony Parker on him, so we'll see if Mike Brown continues to use that tactic throughout the rest of the series.

Great first game from the C's though (well 2 and a half quarters, up until Mo's dunk on Pierce about halfway through the third). The Cavs stepped up their D in the second half and managed to get some really solid offensive possessions.

I think a lot of the people voting for the C's are Cavs haters (Lakers fans, Magic fans, bitter Bulls fans).

I hate using the word haters but that's the only way you can explain the fairly lopsided voting results considering the Cavs are considered favorites but that's what you're gonna get on these forums.

Pierce needs to shut Lebron down like he did in 2008.

Three reasons why this has no chance of happening:

Pierce is now two years older. His defense has decline and he wasn't exactly an elite defender to begin with.

James Posey was a very larger reason (more so than Pierce) for LeBron's relative struggles in that season.

LeBron is a much, much, MUCH better, more dominant player than he was two years ago.

Uh I havnt read a single non biased remark by you once on here. EVery post is either defending the Cavs/Lebron or bragging about the Cavs/Lebron and how godly they are.

Lets be real there's a reason why the crowd was dead silent the entire first half. Completely speechless, they were all thinking about the horror of getting eliminated second round which looked possible after that first half showing. Rondo had his way and so did the Celtics who fed off his play. The Cavs were so so, but couldnt keep up with the Celtics and the only way they seemed to get it done was by getting to the line until Mo/West had little hot streaks.
Cant say who I think is better now, the Celtics looked better, but the Cavs ended up winning in the last minutes.

Dude, don't act like we don't have bitterness against us. We all know how PSD LOVES to hate on KG. Lakers fans hate us more than they hate you guys, as do the bulls fans from last year. Magic fans don't really hate you, they just don't wanna face you in the ECF

Ask anyone on PSD who has been here since I have been around, my "love" for Lebron has only happened because idiots on PSD have hated him so ****ing much. I don't even think the cavs are making the finals

No they didnt. They were ultra hot from the field for a half and as always happens in the NBA, gradually become cooler and cooler in the 2nd half as the Cavs picked up their defense and shut the door on them.

This is the third time this year the Celtics blew a double digit late game lead to the Cavs. Second time it has resulted in a Cavs win.

Boston looked like the better team surprisingly. Don't know how to close a game to save their lives tho, +Sheed/Baby suck.
That call where Lebron hit it out of bounds and they said it went off Baby's foot was funny tho.

rasheed wallace has been the most dissapointing offseason signing.....McDyess would've been a better choice.

i agree.. what happened to this guy.. he used to be one of my favorite players.. it looks like he lost his intensity.. and i dont know how that happens when youre on a team with KG.. he really needs to play like the sheed of old for the celtics to have a chance to win this series..

Ummm, hate to break this to you... But, umm, i'm a Cavs fan. That's kinda what you do on sports forums, defend your team and everything.

Especially when you're one of a very small number of active Cavs posters and support probably the most hated team in the league right now. Just like every post from you is talking about how the Magic are amazing and VC doesn't suck dick...

He never had a strong work ethic, he was a lazy player and now his age is getting up there, he is a bench player and he has a ring.....recipe for laziness and getting by.

McDyess left Detroit hungry, and had more of a sustainable game, Sheed's banging days are done and he is a jump shooter which is a waste of a 7' frame.

Boston will play strong in the beginning of the game, but they will wear out by the end of the game. They will play hard though, but the Cavs are not the same team, Lebron is not the same player, and Boston is not the same team from a couple years ago.

Its nothing but hate for LB on this site and a bunch of people hoping and praying that he loses. Like I said it will definitely be a competitive series but they dont have anyone who can even make Lebron work a little bit on offense. We will beat the Celtics this series and I dont think it will go 7 especially if Mo comes to play like that

ManRam

Uh I havnt read a single non biased remark by you once on here. EVery post is either defending the Cavs/Lebron or bragging about the Cavs/Lebron and how godly they are.

Lets be real there's a reason why the crowd was dead silent the entire first half. Completely speechless, they were all thinking about the horror of getting eliminated second round which looked possible after that first half showing. Rondo had his way and so did the Celtics who fed off his play. The Cavs were so so, but couldnt keep up with the Celtics and the only way they seemed to get it done was by getting to the line until Mo/West had little hot streaks.
Cant say who I think is better now, the Celtics looked better, but the Cavs ended up winning in the last minutes.

It's easy to sound "biased" when 99.9% of PSD will bash LeBron for accidentally stepping on a bug. I hated LeBron before I came here, and all of a sudden, I'm called a LeBron dick-rider. Odd.

Someone who constantly bashes LeBron for everything has no right to say someone else is being biased.

Cleveland was by far the better team in the second half, and it wasn't even close. And the second half> the first half. Cleveland was the better team last night.

As a Celtics fan, I was disgusted with the game last night. The Celtics played the second half completely differently than the first, and towards the end of the game Pierce just threw up ugly, long rage shots without passing the ball.

Wallace has always been overrated. And he has sucked all year, not sure what makes Celtic's fans think that would change at this point.

its not like the Celtics are in a must win scenario yet, but they let that game slip away. I don't think they can win this series unless they get constant dominance from Rondo, and 2 of the big 3 will need big games. And they will need to shut down Cleveland's role players. The Cavs are just better, period. Boston will need a mini-miracle.

hugepatsfan
05-02-2010, 11:25 AM
The only chance Boston has in this series is if they max out. Bad times are coming in Boston - the team is old and hurting. Expect them to come tumbling down to mediocrity next year. There's a chance that a team w/ some fading but well-accomplished veterens (and regardless of any ill feelings towards the big 3, all of them are HOF type players) will make a "last hurrah" type of effort and somehow find a way to beat the Cavs. Other than that, I just don't see it.

^nailed it. Boston fans had to know that when Ainge traded away essentially all your young talent (sans Rondo, which he did a great job of refusing to move), it was going to buy them a 3 year window to win. But it worked, they won their ring. The big 3's deals all come off one a time over the next few years, so they could still be a threat if they make some wise decisions, but I don't see them as a contender anymore, and probably not going forward. And they will win 50 games again next year, which hurts getting any help in the draft. Sold their souls for the chance to win a ring, but who cares, cause they did.

They need to suck the year after KG leaves. That would give them the pick they need to get a franchise SG/SF or scoring PF in the draft. Then use the cap space they would have to sign whicehever position they don't get. Rondo at PG and Perk as a defensive C is a good start though. They need to get really lucky though.

Wow what a surprising game. Boston threw that game away 100% its wasn't the Cavs turning it up it was the Celtics not making the extra passes on O and sitting back during D because they were scarred of foul trouble. Its obvious that the Cavs have the upper edge with players like James and Oneal getting alot of calls but all in all the Celtics are just too old to finish games and are not going to win this series. Its too bad because the fans want to see Celtics Vs Lakers. If Lebron stays with the Cavs he will win one eventually probably this year since there isnt much competition. Whatever the case may be hopefully the Celtics can hit that fountain of youth to beat the Cavs cause the Celtics of 2-3 years ago would have finished the game last night and embarrassed the Cavs on there home court.

If Rondo didn't play passive in the 2nd half of Game 1, this would be 2-0. Report in the Boston Herald today said Rondo was bothered at halftime of Game 1 with how he had more shot attempts than everyone on the team, barring KG. He then decided to try to get others involved in the 2nd half, despite Doc telling him to stay aggressive. This inexperienced and stubborn decision helped us lose Game 2.

Are these free-throws gaps alarming? in the playoffs, Cleveland has shot less free-throw only once, and it was only by 1 free-throw. Is there a Cleveland bias? or are they simply unstoppable and people resort to fouling......keep in mind, Shaq is not the reason for that disparity.

You can't just go by Free Throws only, as non shooting fouls can play a huge role in getting the opponent up over the limit so a team eventually shoots FT's.

In that Game 5 between Chi/Cle where you said Cleveland took one less free throw. The Bulls still had 2 more personal fouls called on them 23 to Cleveland's 21.

The Refs have been very questionable in most if not all the cavs games this post season. That's why i felt really bad for bulls fans about their series.

Also just in case stupid people think the lakers are getting the same treatment.

Game 1 vs Thunder: Thunder 2 more FTs. (lakers 22 in total)
Game 2 vs Thunder: Thunder 1 more FT. (Lakers 32 in total)
Game 3 At Thunder: Thunder 22 more FT. (Lakers 12 in total)
Game 4 At Thunder: Thunder 20 more FT. (Lakers 28 in total)
Game 5 vs Thunder: Lakers 7 more FT. (Lakers 31 in total)
Game 6 At Thunder: Thunder 17 more FT. (Lakers 14 in total)

The first round, Lakers only won FT wise ONCE, and that was from just being +7 from our home court. Even though we lost the first two times FT wise in our home court.

Thunder in their home court, had a total of 59 MORE FTs!!! Yeah lakers are getting calls alright :laugh2:

Rondo is averaging 20/15.5/5 on the road so far in these first two games. It isn't that much of a stretch to say he has been the best player so far in the series, which is downright scary.

As I predicted, the Celtics would have a great chance to win the series because the biggest matchup advantage doesn't belong to the Cavs with Lebron, but the Celtics with Rondo. My prediction holds true through the first two games.

We all know the playoffs are about adjustments. And Cleveland will make their adjustment. So no need to worry about that Cavs fans.....


HOWEVER....


Ever since the Celtics have been healthy with KG/Pierce/Allen, Rasheed and the bench getting better, and the Celtics best player Rajon Rondo running the show....


The Celtics have actually been dominating the Cavs through the course of a game.



Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Cavs @ Celtics (KG, Pierce and Allen starting to get healthier)

Celtics led by as many as 22 pts in that game, and led by 17 pts at the end of the 3rd qtr before Cavs outscored Boston in the 4th 32-19. Celtics win that regular season game 117-113. Cavs with 40 FTA and Celtics with 38 FTA.



Saturday, May 1st, 2010 (Game 1)

Celtics @ Cavs

Celtics led by as many as 11 pts midway through the 3rd qtr before Cleveland went on to win 101-93. Cavs with 31 FTA and Celtics with 21 FTA.



Monday, May 3rd, 2010 (Game 2)

Celtics @ Cavs

Celtics led by 23 pts, their biggest lead, at the end of the 3rd qtr. Celtics beat Cavs 104-86. Cavs with 38 FTA and Celtics with 18 FTA.



It seems that Boston is opening up big leads on the Cavs. If Boston continues to build double digit leads on the Cavs, they need to be able to sustain it in the 2nd half, most notably, in the 4th qtr. If they do that, the Celtics will advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.


Free throw attempts is what is keeping the Cavaliers in a close distant to strike to make the possible comeback. Right now, a healthy Boston Celtics squad is befuddling and dominating the Cavs.

And note how close the free throw disparity was in the last regular season game between the two ball clubs in Boston. Cavs outshot Boston by only 2 free throws. So if Cavs get the calls in Boston, I think the Celtics will as well, so it may just even out in the next 2 games, and then turn back absurd once the series moves back to Cleveland for Game 5.

How will Boston react in round 3 though? Ok...they will move past Cleveland now but Orlando will be waiting. Then the Lakers.

:facepalm:Oh Im sorry. I must have missed the memo that the series ended tonight. It's 1-1 idiot, and last time I checked they play best of 7 series not whoever wins game 2. I'll admit my Cavs have looked bad most of game 1 and all but 6 minutes of game 2 but by no means does that have anything to do with the rest of the series.

There D in the playoffs has been a whole lot better then it was in reg season.

One could say shades of 08. C's could be up 2-0 but a split 1-1 and 2 games in Boston coming up they have to be feeling good.

Considering Pierce has been pretty bad shooting the ball.

celtics and thunder comparisons are unfair. cavs got raped at home and thats with them having 20 more FT"s than the celtics and 15 less foul calls on them. the thunder on the other hand destroye the lakers with a +20 advantage on the FT line. it makes the C's win more impressive and if Mo didnt go nuts this would be 2-0 easily. one issue will be can rondo get some damn rest.

I don't know, the Cavs have no answer for Rondo and Allen. Jamison can't guard KG and Shaq isn't doing anything. The Cavs have a predictable offense and I think the defensive guru Tom Thibodeau is having an easy time slowing the Cavs.

If Boston doesn't go stagnent on O like they are known to, they should win in 6. If Pierce wants to show up, they might win in 5.

I actually think that we will take game 3. IMO we will see an embarrassed cavs team come out with everything, LB will have a monster game and I dont think we will see Sheed go 6-7 again.

Like I stated on my last post Shaq isn't doing anything right now (Maybe Big Z should play). Mo can't guard Rondo at all and his play last night was comparable to his play against orlando last year. Jamison is good, but he is having trouble guarding a hobbled KG at home. Parker is a scrub, he was good in the regular season, but scrubs get exposed in the playoffs and Rondo and Allen are exposing Mo and Parker.

I really don't know what people think. Boston was never going to lay down for us. This series is a dog fight. We have to play our game. The series is tied 1-1 and we got our ***** whooped last game but adjustments will be made. This is playoff basketball and these teams are playing hard.

All people keep talking about is last year. That was last year and this is a new year with a different team with different players. I said the series would go 6 but it may even go 7. We will play better. No one ever said that our road to win the championship would be easy. Boston is a tough, physical team that is going to go down fighting.

To be honest I didn't mean Mike Brown..I meant LBJ and the assistants....I am not a Mike Brown supporter and wouldn't mind them bringing somebody else in next year, that being said LeBron will have time to figure out what needs to change for Friday's game....Boston has fight left in them it was obvious last night but I don't think they have enough to win a long series against us they are going to have to finish it in 5 IMO to get past Cleveland but we all know that this won't be a 5 game series.

Boston played one hell of a game last night, but I can't see them doing it consistently. They had one them shooting nights where everything falls even the most difficult shots (Ray's fadeaway corner 3 for example) I notice the Magic have a lot of games like these also. Then the next game they can't get a 3 to fall and Sheed returns to his old *****y self.

IMO I think for the C's to win Pierce has to break this slump he's because he's the biggest key for them. Also since Lebron is probably going to drop 35-7-7 since he wasn't very assertive last game, Pierce has to match his productivity.

Relax kid, you're not Kobe, Phil, Gasol or anyone else in the Lakers organisation. I could care less if LA wins the next 40 rings, doesn't do anything for/against me. You'd better pray the Magic eliminate the Cavs/Celts, both of those teams would whoop LA, as would Orlando should the oppurtunity present itself.

No one is saying the series is "over," but you have to be more than a little concerned as a Cavs' fan that Boston has led for six of eight quarters in this series and could easily be up 2-0 right now. Plus, Cleveland still has no answer for Rondo (and I don't think they'll find one), and it's becoming blatantly obvious that Jamison cannot cover Garnett.

Very true, plus Ray is running around screens at will. Delonte and Parker cannot keep up with him. You can even see it is affecting their offense too as the two of them have had back to back sub par shooting nights.

What makes it hilarious is that Barkley said Jamison should easily win the battle with Garnett. I don't know where he got that from. Jamison is 6'8", MAYBE 6'9". Garnett is 7'1". He has been able to shoot over the top of Jamison at will.

The scariest thing about all of this is that Pierce hasn't even gotten going yet.

I don't know if you can just "stop" playing Jamison because, technically, he is Cleveland's second best player.

Actually I'm not concerned because Boston ISN'T up 2-0 the series is tied and there could possibly be 5 more so at this point the first two games mean nothing....LeBron will find a way to be aggressive the rest of the way and as far as having answers the Cs will not find one for him. Rondo may keep going off but Sheed won't repeat his game 2 and Pierce will continue to do minimal damage(he just looks kind of lost) and allen won't stay quite as hot as he has been either.

You're counting on an AWFUL lot to go Cleveland's way. How do you know Wallace won't repeat his game two? It's not like he hasn't been here before. I also find it VERY hard to believe Pierce will continue to do minimal damage, and Allen has been hot all postseason. You're assuming far too much.

Because whether they have played like it or not the Cavs are the better team. Sheed won't repeat his performance because when has he done anything against the Cavs this year? He looks like he doesn't want to play most of the time. Jamison also won't play as bad as he has either, same with Mo Williams and if JJ and Varejao have more time they should run the Cs to death. I do realize they've gotten embarrassed for the most part so far and for the Cs to have to get so much out of their role players I just don't think they can sustain the level of play. And when the Cavs decide its time to handle business the Celtics best won't be good enough to win a long series which is what both teams are in for, they'll just run out of gas.

Parker- sucks
Moon - sucks
Jamison- getting owned by KG and hasn't been good with the Cavs
Shaq- old and has been sucking

1. This is the playoffs, and veterans elevate their games during the playoffs, and just as Garnett and Allen have increased their level of play, I can almost guarantee you that Wallace will, too.

2. I can agree that Jamison probably won't continue to play this poorly, BUT, let's not forget that he is going to have to deal with Garnett all series. No matter how you spin it, that is a horrible mismatch for Cleveland.

3. What "role players" are you talking about that the Celtics "have to get so much out of"? The only role player that has really put forth any significant contribution for Boston thus far is Wallace. Rondo, Garnett, and Allen have been handling the rest of the load.

4. So you're saying that, all of a sudden, the Cavs are just going to "decide it's time to handle business"? I guess game two didn't count as one of those times?

5. The Celtics know what it takes to win a championship; the Cavaliers don't. So, if anyone is going to "run out of gas," it will be Cleveland.

You're acting like the Cavaliers are so much better than the Celtics when the fact is that Boston is the more talented team overall and is in a great position to win this series.

In my opinion Mike Brown is showing just how bad of a coach he is in this series. Lets be honest here, the Cavs are a lot better against the Celtics with Hickson or Varejao in instead of Shaq because it enables them to run the floor. Rondo will have his way all series, the only real option the Cavs have is to try and put LeBron on him and keep him out of the paint.

Im very interested in seeing what the Cavs come out doing on Friday after having all this time off. I really don't think they came in focused for Game 2 after having the MVP ceremony Sunday (Which is an idiotic decision to do the day before a game in my opinion). Rasheed Wallace likely won't play as well as he did in Game 2 and LeBron likely won't play as bad as he did in Game 2 the rest of the series. I really feel like Game 2 was a giant wake up call for the Cavs and one they needed badly. Game 3 is huge for this series and I wouldn't be surprised to see the Cavs go in and win both games in Boston.

You cannot be serious...

If that ceremony SERIOUSLY distracted Cleveland THAT much, then they should just pack their bags and go home because they don't deserve to win a championship.

Also, I would be absolutely dumbfounded if Cleveland won both games in Boston.

At what point do you stop playing Shaq and Antawn and start playing Hickson and AV?

I've been saying this. The Cavs don't even need Shaq or Antawn against the Celtics. Those guys slow them down. They do need them for everyone else though.

The Cavaliers need to start playing J.J Hickson more.

I've never said this before but....go celtics :puke:

Yeah how dirty do you feel now.. lol

I think the problem is that both team are fairly despised for whatever reason.. I mean Boston is Boston and with people feeling like there's just way too much attention on the Cavs and LJ (overload really) it's bound to cause a lot of animosity so now you have this situation where if you don't root for either team you just want them to pound on each other and feel dirty rooting for either team.. It's kind of funny..

1-You're right, the Jamison Garnett matchup does not bode well for us at all...his minutes (along with Shaqs) should be limited in this series as JJ and AV allow us to run them to death.

2-6 guys won't beat the Cavs in a long series, I just don't see it happening and if Sheed is the only role player contributing I can't see the Big 3 having enough to beat the Cavs

3-I think Game 2 was a slap in the face wake up call type game for the Cavs and that they will come back harder and with more heart than they've shown so far in the first two games.

4-Boston is in no way shape or form a better team than Cleveland, you're legitimately insane if you believe that....I'm not trashing them IMO they just aren't the better team.


And when I mention them running out of gas it's because they aren't deep enough to get rest for the big 3....Rondo is the wild card because IMO he is an absolute beast and a game changer and I'm sure he can play a full 48 minutes so the Cavs have to find a way to get a couple stops on him and body him a bit more in the paint.

Most of the Cavs players suck.

Mo- kinda sucks
Parker- sucks
Moon - sucks
Jamison- getting owned by KG and hasn't been good with the Cavs
Shaq- old and has been sucking
Gibson- went back to sucking
West- is good, but a wild card
Andy- Good role player, isn't playing like he has most of the year
Hickson- pretty good, doesn't get enough PT.



You're just a hater shut up........Lakers let's see....

Kobe-not himself this year because he's battling injuries
Odom-solid I suppose
Gasol-huge cry baby and very soft if he has to play stronger big men
Artest-kinda sucks
Fisher-a shell of his former self
Walton-fail
Sasha-suck
Adam Morrison-bahahaha enough said

I think Boston needs to stay ahead in this series to win. They can't lose game 3 at home and win this series IMO.
