What is so funny about the possibility of the Celtics winning game 3? The Celtics have been impressive against Cleveland thus far and present matchup problems for the Cavs. I wouldn't be surprised if the Celtics win Game 3. Also, Pierce has not played well yet, so I expect him to have a big game soon.

I'm betting the refs in Boston will let both teams play and it's going to get very physical, as every Eastern Conference matchup should. :)

The Cavs are the more aggressive team but some of the calls they are getting and we aren't are ridiculous. It's not all the refs, we are playing like horseshit. Remember the Celtics had a 20 point+ lead on the Cavs in the 4th and came back so the game isn't over yet.

LeBron can never win in your mind can he?

If he does he good, like he is now, his elbow injury was a fake.

If he doesn't do good, you compare him to Kobe and how he does so well playing through injuries because he has a bigger heart. And if they lose because of the injury, everyone ridicules him because that will be his "out" if he loses.

That dosnt matter you still gotta try to draw fouls..you'll get the call eventually..dont give me this fixing crap...everyone knows that the nba is scared $hi+less since donaghy went public in 2008...BTW I do believe him about all the game fixing before...but I really think the NBA wont take that risk now that they are questioned.

No if you can't buy a call you are wasting a possession by going in there and getting fouled. Better off taking a jumpshot where at least the players know they have a chance. You telling me you didn't see Lebron's block where he got no ball? Not even close to getting any. Then touch fouls on the other end. They called more fouls on the celtics in the first quarter then they called on the cavs in the first half.

I'd take 28 points on 11-15 shooting with 8 rebounds in one half and being called a faker as opposed to the best player in the league being injured.

LeBron can never win in your mind can he?

If he does he good, like he is now, his elbow injury was a fake.

If he doesn't do good, you compare him to Kobe and how he does so well playing through injuries because he has a bigger heart. And if they lose because of the injury, everyone ridicules him because that will be his "out" if he loses.

Well its funny how the first two games it's his elbow is the reason he plays good and now all of a sudden he's healed and playing better than ever?


Injuries take time to heal pretty sure 4 days wouldn't heal something thats been bothering him for weeks.

He said himself that as soon as he gets on the court that whether he is injured or not, he is LIABLE for his performance. He doesn't make excuses for why he plays bad, and wouldn't name the elbow because of that. A thread on the NBA forum even said that a unnamed source of the Cavs said that the elbow injury is so serious that he shouldn't even be playing on it.

Well if he really didn't want the attention he would of just shot that last FT normally and the "elbow" would never of been a discussion....it was ONE FT just shoot it normal what was so hard about that he had shot every other shot normally that game.

The guy wanted attention and now the media will say he's some tough guy that plays great when hurt and blah blah blah and now they'll make him out to be some GREAT PLAYER who plays when hurt....even though he was faking it.

His elbow injury is so serious that he shouldn't even be playing on it. To me, that means that he was in some serious pain. So why aggravate the injury anymore, instead of just relieve the pain as it was the end of the game anyway?

First its Dudley and Frye..now Dragic and Barbosa.

Pop is getting owned by Gentry. LOL at getting the suns guards wide open shots by switching on every freaking play, which has never been our defensive scheme. Love how Duncan doesnt even have the chance to get the ball with Amare or Frye or Collins guarding him.

Good job Suns since they are going to win the series, but Pops stupid decisions and the Spurs pathetic/non passionate play lost them this series more then the Suns beat us to me.

Gentry is a good coach. He is totally outcoaching Pop. Its just so ****ing frusturating when your best player barely gets any touches in the post against a soft interior defense of Amare/Collins/Frye, and you are running nothing but pick and roll to get jump shots..which we havent made to save our lifes this series.

Parkers ego must have went to his head this year. Good player and scorer, but he was an absolute ball hog this year and to me hurt us more then helped. Wish he would look to pass more off drive and kick instead of dribbling the ball for 15-20 seconds and making a terrible pass or forcing up a contested jumper.

The only thing thats stopping him from coming back right now is getting strength in his legs and conditioning. Which is why im hoping we can close out the Spurs next game and hopefully the Jazz can steal one from LA to extend the series. Getting Lopez back should level the playing field a bit against LA.

I didn't catch the the Spurs game last night, but I drunkenly remember watching LeBron. Dude is just on a whole other level right now. Amazing performance. It will be interesting to see if game 2, and by game 2 I mean the most passive game he's ever played in his playoff career, was a fluke or not. Injuries are the type of things that adrenaline and determination can totally override at times, but sometimes they are going to get the best of you. With that said, I can only imagine how many Laker fans here are saying his injury is fake now. Hahaha. I haven't read this thread, but there has to be that talk. It's too typical.


I'm sad the Spurs are going to lose this series though. I was pulling for them. Oh well.
