I highly doubt you win Game 1 over here. And good luck to Garnett coming out to guard Lewis at the 3 point line.

Barnes will make Pierce work hard for anything he gets. And so far he has been under the radar so I guess that's what you are laughing at.

Garnett can get out to the 3 point line just fine now. That video of a hobbling KG with barely any lateral movement is a thing of the past. Keep thinking that video is a good indication of KG's current ability and you'll be in for a major disappointment this series.

I was laughing at Barnes guarding anybody. Ray or Pierce. :laugh2:

I think BOS got a fine amount of rest. They last played Thursday - they will have about 2.5 days of rest - enough to reccoperate but not so much that they lose mementum from there huge upset over CLE.

I am a huge Celtics fan, and that is just making all C's fans look bad. Matt Barnes is arguably Orlando's best defender(besides Dwight of course) and can give either Pierce or Ray, whoever he is on, a lot of trouble.

Everyone is focusing on the rondo/nelson matchup as well as the two matchups down low, but I think one small but very important factor is who Barnes is put on.

I think if he is put on Pierce Van Gundy is making a great move. Pierce will be expecting a break coming off a tough series versus Lebron, but barnes will get under his skin to no end. That puts VC on ray, and Vince is bigger and will be a tough matchup for Ray when the celts are on D.

If SVG puts switches that around, however, the C's are in great position. Carter is nowhere near the defenders lebron and barnes are and pierce will go off now that he finally doesnt have an amazing defender on him. Barnes will be on Ray, and honestly I think after one or two games he will be beat to **** running around and around all the picks Ray goes through. Ray Allen runs the most without the ball of anyone in this league, and i dont think this kid is prepared for that.

So let's hope SVG makes a mistake, either way i think this series will go 6 or 7, and in my biased opinion the celts take it.

hugepatsfan
05-16-2010, 01:42 AM
I think VC will struggle in this series. The Celts have a great history of shutting down opposing wings in the playoffs. Also, on D, I think he will struggle chasing Ray on screens. I think he is a much better matchup w/ Pierce because he is more stationary.

Good defender, but I guarantee Pierce will play wayyy better this series. Against the Cavs he had to exert lots of energy playing D vs Lebron. Guarding Barnes should be easy since he will be on the 3 pt line, therefore not tiring Pierce out.

I'm going with Orlando for this one. They're well rested, got the HCA, the deck is just stacked in their favor this time I think. But I do think the Cs are poised give them a hell of a run for their money in this series if they keep playing like they did against Cleveland. Should be a good one.

VC/Pietrus will guard Pierce, Barnes/Redick will guard Allen, doubt you guys fully shut VC out, he'll get a lot of open looks and the p&r with Dwight will either free him up, free Dwight up or leave a shooter open... The only guy who can shut VC down in this series, will be VC himself.

Redick was great on Ray last year. But there is a pretty big difference this year - KG is back. I have never seen Big Baby play a game w/out being called for a moving pick. KG will be able to set better (and by better I mean illegal) picks to free Ray up a bit more. I know people will dismiss this as ref hating (which it isn't), but it's a factor that will play a role in the game.

I think a close game is bad for the Magic because they haven't played a competitive 4 quarters in about a month. They have not played balls to the wall in a 4th quarter for a long time. Just something to think about.

Blue Magic
05-16-2010, 11:45 AM
The matchups aren't mutually exclusive, so we can mix & match all of our wings depending on the series is playing out... For right now tho, Barnes' only job will be to chase around Ray... I dont care what else he does in this series, as long as he sticks to Ray like glue he's golden. If he cant handle that tho, then I dont why he should play...

But I dont see why Barnes should struggle with that assignment too much. When he comes out, JJ Redick will have the same objective of not giving Ray Ray an inch. Redick plays alot like Ray, and he is 7 yrs younger, so if anyone should know how to defender a shooter like that and has the legs to keep up, it is Redick. Pietrus and Vince can take turns on Pierce. I know one thng tho, Vince is probably the last guy we want chasing Ray Allen around... Maybe situationally it's ok, but not for a whole game...

These Celtics won't go away quietly...especially their big duo off the bench, Sheed and Baby should be pivotal because their perimeter shot can draw out Howard and open up the lane.

I expect no pretty wins on either side.

Redick played great D on Ray. It was hard for him to get anything going. And look at the Kobe/Barnes match up. Barnes isn't gonna back down from anything.

The more Redick is on the floor, the more i like the chances of the Celtics winning.

This might sound incredibly bias, but JJ is perhaps one of the best defenders in terms of guarding just Ray Allen in the league. He runs around those screens better than any defender I've seen these last two years. He's a mad man in that regard. Just look at what Ray did (or didn't do) last year in the playoffs. Verse us, he averaged only 14.4 points a game, shooting 35.5% from the field and 21.3% from three. He was terrible.

Do you think it was a coincidence that JJ averaged over 25 minutes a game that series, and then played only 10 total minutes verse Cleveland? It's because he guarded Ray far better than anyone else was. He was great verse Ray.

I can go on and on, but I don't think last year was a fluke. Watching JJ follow Ray around those screens all day was a thing of beauty. If we can contain Allen (and between Peaches, Barnes and JJ, I think we can) this series is far more easily winnable.

Blue Magic
05-16-2010, 01:13 PM
People talk about the Rondo matchup alot, but personally I think containing Allen(and also Pierce) will be the key for us.

KG is the single most important member of the Celtics as a defensive unit. This has been a defensive team since his arrival. When he is not in the lineup, the defensive philosophy suffers incredibly.

Glen Davis stepped up last year, but his defense is nowhere near KG's. The return of KG, in my opinion, will out weigh the impact of the return of Jameer Nelson.

We play 2nd Halves tons better than the first halves. It's a blessing we're only down by 9, off a week of rest, and we're playing terribly.

Agreed. Pietrus is trying to be Kobe, like he always does, and it's not working this time, so he needs to attack. The threes aren't falling. Time for us to attack the rim.

IMO you can tell who is the best centre by how they play defense. for example, take the raptors, andrea bargnani plays the C and is more offensively gifted then dwight howard. but he is obviously not the best C although he may be one of the best 3pt shooting C's in the league. The Centres main purpose is to hold down the fort, or protect the house. last line of defense...etc.
