I think we can all agree that seeing Ray Allen break such a tremendous record as a Celtic at home against the Lakers with Reggie Miller court side was a basketball moment that Celtics will be part of the magical franchise history forever. Congrats to Ray and his family, now back to business at hand.

Besides the crowd being juiced up because it is the Lakers and because of Ray's new record the Celtics got a tremendous life from the bench play of Von Wafer. Just when I was nervous about the depth, Wafer steps up and provides a spark. I always thought of him as a perimeter gunner, but he goes to the rim with a certain anger and is definitely building some confidence as he is quickly becoming a key reserve for the coming weeks. In addition Nate Robinson left the court with a bruised knee and will be re-evaluated at half-time, which means it is Rondo for the long haul at the point with Allen, Wafer and Pierce sharing the 2 and 3 minutes the rest of the way. It's never easy as the lead has gone from 15 down to 7.... make that 5 after the Fisher pull up.

Special Evening 8:30

Thursday night on TNT, Lakers at Celtics, Ray Allen two three's away from passing Reggie Miller, who is court side along with Steve Kerr and the maestro Marv Albert. But as the game begins I am confused by the Lakers yellow and the 1940's Celtics white throwback's. While I am digging the green stripe on the short I am just not a fan of the change tonight. What I am really concerned about is the bench situation. When you have a match-up like this you want the game more then, well. lets just say the game in Charlotte the other night and the starters are going to have to play big minutes. Ray already has knocked down two jumpers as has Gasol, the crowd is rowdy and my dinner just got here. Ray rims out a three and the crowd wants it!!! Lets go Ray!!!

    Added a pic to your post Coach. hope you don't mind.

  2. All for naught because the win is all that mattered. Perkins is awful. Glen Davis should never play against LA. If there's no Shaq or Jermaine (likely) than Boston still has no chance of beating them in a 7 game series.

    Remember the date: June 17, 2010. That was the last date the Celtics had a chance to win the title.

    We were missing half our rotation. Shut up Norman.

  4. Karl says:

    Also, for the record sports are supposed to be fun and you probably wouldn't get enjoyment if the Celtics won 10 titles in a row. You suck at life.

  5. Wahhh! Sports are supposed to be "fun". Wahhh, wahh wahh!

    Sports are supposed to be competitive. Any positives that came out of the win in LA was negated by tonight's performance. The great teams find ways to win these games, with or without their bench.

    Be a man Dillinger, and stop twinkle-toeing around here, subjecting yourself to further ridicule. The second someone repudiates you, you cave in. So don't give me sports are supposed to be "fun." Be a man and admit it. Celtics sucked tonight and any aura of invincibility they had conjured up after the win in LA is out the window.

    We'll continue this conversation when the Celtics aren't in first place come Sunday.

  6. Karl says:

    Sounds good. Doesn't take away from the fact that you are just a miserable human being in general.

  7. Karl says:

    Also, what is this aura of invincibility? When did we have that? That is media conjured nonesense that I would have expected someone with your perceived knowledge of basketball not to believe. I used to think your act was kind of humorous but you just really are a terrible human being.

  8. Karl says:

    Sorry everyone for the little internet chat squabble. Good post Coach.

  9. JR says:

    Karl, pay Norman no mind. He just tries to mess with people who react. Norman sucks at life was a great line. Lol. Norman is on borrowed time right now. if he doesn't get his act together he's gonna get the boot.

  10. tb727 says:

    Yeah geez Norman, stfu would ya? You're nowhere to be found during winning streaks. I understand you're intelligent when it comes to basketball and have obviously watched a lot of NBA. But to constantly complain about everyone on the site here? That's just childish.

    All I can say is grow up and leave the writers be.

  11. JR says:

    I'm not so sure about the whole "intelligent when it comes to basketball" part. He makes tons of predictions and when he gets 1 out of 10 right, he comes on to say "See!" Reminds me of Gary Tanguay.
