You know, there's a little box that you can uncheck to not show your signature. Celtics and Hawks are playing and we don't really need the 3 Laker dudes' heads at the bottom of the otherwise nice game thread. I even do it on the Celtic game threads I make in the C's forum just to have it look uncluttered without a personal sig.

No reason we shouldn't close this out today.

Joe Johnson had some words after Game 4 about Horford messing up chemistry that the team had built in the months he was out. He was pretty glum about tonight's game and Horford starting. Sounds like he doesn't like the amount of touches he got and Horford throwing the team's offense off.

You know there's also a setting option to turn signatures off so you dont have to see any of them?

Get over it.

Teague is the only one playing inspired

he's been fantastic all series. very impressive, their best player...which says a lot. maybe he can thank KG for turning into a competent player, lol, a lifetimes worth of motivation in one quote.

JJ has simply met the force of nature known as avery bradley.

Corey

Stop shooting Rondo

Celtics need to be aggressive and go to the paint every time down

The Hawks just don't play together! This is one team that really needs to reevaluate the roster! This is lame!

What a lucky shot by Rondo.

KB-Pau-DH2012
05-08-2012, 09:19 PM
Even Kenny recognizes the Hawks aren't worth going to the big board to analyze the first half.


It all starts with their "leader", Joe Johnson.

The Atlanta Hawks, a pass-time team, meaning when you're board and you just want to see some random guys dribbling a ball, watch the ATL Hawks!

God damn, Josh Smith is so lazy.

He could be so good.

KB-Pau-DH2012
05-08-2012, 09:51 PM
Al Horford is the heart and soul of the Atlanta Hawks, and this is just his 2nd game back from the pec tear. Everyone else on the team is a major stiff.

joe johnson holds onto it till 1 second left, and bad things happen

Corey
05-08-2012, 10:31 PM
Think any team would actually take JJ's contract moving forward?

Edit: I guess they could save their amnesty for it in a year or two.

I'm calling it right now, Rondo steals the inbounds pass and goes all the way for the layup, Celtics win by 1.

Look at the Hawks half-*** that inbounds play... this team makes me shake my head sometimes. They're still missing that extra level of maturity and intent to detail. They could be so damn good.

Horford made the difference. If the Hawks win one in Boston this series will become serious real quick.

atlanta showed some cojones, but still this series is what it is.

05-08-2012, 10:56 PM
Yeah and if you think about it they all are great friends from their days in ATL(growing up there). Smith has stated he wants to leave and dwight is as good as gone so why not reunite in Boston
Starting 5 of
Rondo-bradley-free agent-smith-dwight

Can you say #1 defensive team by a mile.

We might get Zaza back next game I believe. More energy and attitude is what we need. Now play Ivan more and get Horford healthy.

Defense is meaningless if you can't score. That team would struggle to find a consistent offense.

mdm692
05-08-2012, 11:12 PM
I dont know about all that bradley is young all he really needs to do is develop a consistent 3pt shot let rondo play pick n roll with dwight and j-smoove(pick n pop as well) and find your go to scorer via fa preferably sf. Michael beasley maybe??

Why did Rondo have the ball with little seconds to go out on the perimeter? It's not like he's a good shooter for that. Oh well, I think Boston closes this out in game 6.

Rondo stole the ball on an inbounds pass and tried to quickly bring the ball up court, but Josh Smith stopped the transition opportunity, and then Horford closed out the game with his defense on Rondo when he was out around the 3 pt area.

I saw that. He was doing too much dribbling out on the perimeter prior to the deflection (It actually looked like the ball went out of bounds).. Didn't he try to pass it to KG behind the 3 point line? Ehh, just a bad play from him.
