I am going to go out on the limb and say that the Spurs will put out the win tomorrow. I am picking the Celtics to win, but I think Cleveland will win the series. I think Boston will play with a sense of urgency and pull out tomorrow's game.

If the Cavs come out the gate playing tough D and rebound the basketball we will win. Also if Lebron attacks for a full game like he did last game then its over for the Celtics.

But if we play lazy and slow then Boston will win at home.

You guys shot 71% in the first and 62% in the half, you will need to play tough D and rebound well to have a chance to win... Can't rely on the offensive game too much, it comes and goes.

2010 WCF: (1) 57-25 Los Angeles Lakers (Defending NBA Champions) vs (3) 54-28 Phoenix Suns

This isn't last year. The supporting cast has generally been good. But definitely not perfect, or at the level it needs to be. The shooters are hitting their shots, for the most part. That's what KILLED you guys last year.

It's the defense right now that's hurting them.

Cavs are looking weak after a strong three minutes to start the game

ManRam
05-09-2010, 04:12 PM
Cavs are getting out-hustled. They are getting killed on the boards, and after those first 3 or so minutes, they seem one step slower than Boston, which just sounds wrong. They aren't hitting their shots either, which certainly doesn't help.

Wallace could shoot someone in the head, on live TV infront of the entire world, and probably still whine and complain saying that he didn't do it. I love Sheed for that though, even though I hate whiners. He's consistent with it.

ManRam
05-09-2010, 04:21 PM
Cavs cranking up the defense, and it's leading to some offense. We have ourselves a game again.

LeBron has put up 5 shots only and doesn't have a rebound. But, he does have 5 free throw attempts. He's gotta get it goin offensively and put pressure on C's defense before Boston goes crazy.

Yeah. Another weirdly passive game from him. Very odd. The Cavs are obviously, and have continually proved it, a team that can't win without him being insanely assertive.

Most of the time, when I attack Lebron in my posts, it's because I really believe he's done something. In this instance, he really didn't do anything, Ray just got feisty or something.

LeBron isn't as quick as Rondo, but he can prevent him from getting those easy lay-ups. His size difference would be enough to offset Rondo's speed. Not to mention, Lebron wouldn't need to be playing tight on Rondo, let him settle for jumpers

Someone (Iggy??) said that FT shooting contests suck. I personally love the aggressiveness. Both teams are getting to the paint at will. If players could play better defense, it would be great. But I'd rather watch a game like this than a game where teams just jack up shots.

LeBron isn't as quick as Rondo, but he can prevent him from getting those easy lay-ups. His size difference would be enough to offset Rondo's speed. Not to mention, Lebron wouldn't need to be playing tight on Rondo, let him settle for jumpers

its not whether he can guard rondo. parker cant guard pierce. he absolutely raped him in the last possession.

Definitely, ManRam, Haha. I can't sit here and lie. I asked my parents why they do all of this for me. They replied, "Because, we don't have to worry about who you hang out with, and you don't give us a reason NOT to get you good things." I almost feel guilty, but it's the truth. I don't smoke/drink/do bad in school, so I guess it evens out. I'm paying for 100, out of the 250$ though. Guess this will be my school present, lmao.

Whats wrong with Pierce? That end of the half sequence was terrible, at least get a shot up. He needs to step up and be the man of 2 years ago, otherwise, the Celts are done. Rondo and their supporting cast can't do it by themselves. C'mon Paul, earn that paycheck.

Well, looks like this series will get extended because I think Boston may ride this momentum into the 2nd half and win game 4. I'm pretty sure Cavs win the series, but an extended series is no good for an old guy like Shaq, who will have to go up against a well rested BEAST in Dwight Howard after Magic sweep Hawks.

Of course he does. But there's no real fix that's in place right now. Superstars get calls, and in fact, for a superstar and one of the best players in the game, Kobe doesn't get a lot of calls or get away with much. LeBron definitely does probably more so than anybody but it's really hard to rig the whole playoffs so two teams could meet. Of course Stern would love to see that matchup, as we all would but if they happen to meet, it's gonna be because they're the two best teams in the league.

I can't speak on behalf of the Cavs, but I know for a fact that LA is not getting the benefit of calls. In the series against OKC, the Thunder shot 53 more free throws than the Lakers and were whistled for far less personal fouls. All of those are factual statements, simply research each game. In the series against Utah, the foul discrepancy is about even. Even when LA is at home, the personal fouls for each team is about even and both teams are shooting close to the same amt. of foul shots. It's bogus to say that LA is getting beneficial calls.

JB's just mad because Rondo is showing people why

Rondo>Rose

You take Rondo off the C's and they lose in 5 to the Cavs. Rondo is single-handly carrying the C's.

You take Rose off the Bulls they don't make the playoffs, you take Rondo off the Celtics they still are a top 4 seed.

Not according to JB. Mo is 4th best PG, while rondo doesn't even crack the top 5.

Not even.

Rondo was the best player this year for the C's.
