Play a full 48 minutes of defense and rebounding. They had their chance to make it easier, but they pissed it away. That being said, nothing can be done about Game 4 anymore so just focus on winning tonight.

This series should be over. So frustrating. [Shaq] The C's are outplaying the Sixers in every facet of the game except "winning" [/Shaq]

I was gonna start this thread, but you snooze, you lose...

You sit back, you're going to let this Philly team beat you. The Sixers aren't good, but they're professional basketball players and they have pride. They're going to work their asses off to win games and to win this series. You can't give them a chance. You can't give them hope. This isn't Apollo Creed versus Rocky Balboa. There is no reason to leave a doubt people's minds.

This is scheduled to be a seven round fight, but four gets you the decision. You're favored to win by KO, but so far, you've sat back and let them stay in the fight. It's a competitive one. This is the game. No, it is THE game. You land the heavy body shots. You soften them up. You weaken them. You break their will.

This is the game where you say it's my game, it's my series, it's my fight.

Win this game, break their will, and take the series.

Let's go Celtics!

Just like 10 years ago, let's make the Boston Three Party Reign supreme. Do it, boys.

Things I want to see tonight:
  • Youthful KG
  • Active Rondo
  • Slashing Pierce
  • Aggressive rebounding
  • Bradley's left shoulder in the socket

Philly fans are acting very chippy today. Enough.

Though Bradley's situation is a concern.

If you feel like playing shit basketball, do it in the 1st quarter at least.

Still no Avery Bradley in the locker room. Doc tells Sean Grande Bradley is doubtful. Would guess the same based on pregame warm-ups.

Definitely out. Ray starts and Dooling and Pietrus will see more minutes.

:rex:

I see no reason why Dooling shouldn't be sacrificed and used for parts. A shoulder to Bradley, an ankle to Ray, a knee to Paul, a foot to Stiemer, and a brain to Hollins.

Crap. A thousand times crap.

All on Rondo, PP and KG now.

Maybe Ray got the German platelet treatment over the weekend?

This better force Rondo into attack mode offensively early now. He needs to do what he did in Game 3 every game.

With Avery out it makes the Game 4 collapse look even more disastrous. Instead of just having to get through one home game to close out Philly and get some rest it's now a tough series with the Celtics missing their best perimeter on ball defender. Everyone knows how terrible Ray has been especially on defense and now he is going to be playing a bigger role tonight. Hope something strikes with him being back in the starting lineup and he hits a couple 3's early. Would hate to see 24 minutes of collapsing in Game 4 be the cause of the Celtics losing this series to the #8 seed 76ers who had the worst record of any playoff team this season.

With 2 days off the real big 3 better be ready to take this game over like the big 2 in Miami.

The "Ray running around screens offense" was bad enough when Ray was healthy and good.

Now its just a disastrous way to waste possessions.

Philly is a TERRIBLE offensive team yet they are scoring nearly every trip down the court. What happened to the Celtic's great defense? 3rd and 4th quarter of Game 4 and now tonight

They are stopping the initial offense, but not finishing the possession off with a rebound. Very frustrating.

No hustle at all to get back on defense this is pathetic after 2 days off ---

How in the HELL can Philly have 25 points already
