The Cavs are a better team than the Celtics so this loss shouldn't come as a surprise.  I was happy the Celtics hung around for as long as they did. I wish all of Rasheed's shots could be given to Rondo and Garnett. They both need more shots in my opinion. Ray had a pretty good all around game with 20 points, 6 rebounds, and 5 assists. Pierce showed flashes but still isn't anywhere close to being back to form.

When the bench scores a combined 15 points you aren't going to win many games. Rasheed was 1-8, but that should come as no surprise.  He has been a complete dissapointment this year and I don't see him turning it on for the playoffs. Big Baby should play more minutes than him. While he lacks the talent of Rasheed, he hustles and rebounds.  For a terrible rebounding team like the Celtics he is exactly what they need.

Lebron had 30, 8, and 7 and that is just another day at the office for him. The guy is incredible to watch and is by far the best player in the league. Boston did a pretty good job shutting him down in the first half, but I think that was more Lebron just choosing not to score than the Celtics stopping him. He's impossible to guard. Just think what he would be if he ever developed a post game(scary thought.) Leon Powe had 4 rebounds in 8 minutes and a +11 point differential when he was on the floor.  Think we could've used him this year? Varejao's 17 points off the bench were huge.  The guy flops more than a soccer player but he has heart. I'd take him on the Celtics in a second.

Overall a pretty standard loss. If anyone expected us to beat the Cavs in Cleveland simply because we blew out a terrible Pacers team they are living in an alternate universe.  Don't get down though. The Celtics are still fun to watch and I guess anything can happen in the playoffs, right?

    Why do the Cavs CONSTANTLY wear there road uniforms at home? I could see once or twice a year but it's like an every night occurrence.

    Finley wasn't hitting his shots tonight, interesting he even took some of Marquis' minutes tonight. I thought it was cool when Doc had him in trying to emulate the Posey lineup of a few years ago with Garnett at center.

    KG getting swatted on those 3 consecutive plays HAD to remind people of Charles Smith.

    And someone please create "perkisabust.com" ugh...

    Somehow I'm not disappointed and that is scaring me

  3. As far as the last sentence goes you said it not me, haha. Totally agree though.

    I'd hate Varejao in green (if it wasn't an amazonian rain forest). He's a lady. You've read me, a lady.

  5. tb727 says:

    Yeah I agree Jenda, I detest Sideshow Bob, and wouldn't want him on the Celtics actually. I hate guys like that.

  6. I don't like his antics but the guy gets after it on the boards.

  7. tb727 says:

    So does Troy Murphy Karl, I'd take him over Sideshow Bob...

  8. Agreed. The more I think about it the more I want to retract that statement.

    If Perk was a rookie he hit the wall around the all-star break.

    I def hate watching Varejao, but if the Cavs had Murphy instead of him, our chances would be MUCH better.
