Okay so, I still have hope that the Celtics will win the Eastern Conference Series.
Now on to the issues:
Technical Fouls and Kendrick Ejected– Come on SON!!! You cannot be serious. The officials should be fined for bad calls. Tech #1-Perkins was trying to help a teammate up from the floor and accidently elbowed a player. Tech #2- The call was simply bogus! I was beginning to believe that the refs are on the Magic payroll.
Concussions– WOW!!! Never have I seen two concussions occur in the same game. The first was kind of scary because Big Baby was clearly shaken. I hope he will be able to return on Friday with a vengeance. The second concussion was kinda of unbelievable because old dude wasn’t even in the game that long.
The loss– Rasheed did a good job tonight, but fouled out with a hurt back. Everyone was in foul trouble. I thought Pierce was going to foul out. No one really guarded Nelson so he was able to shoot the lights out. Where was Kevin Garnett on offense? Where was Ray Allen on offense?
The game was extremely physical but what should we expect. If you back a cat (The Magic) in the corner they will come out clawing. This is basketball not tennis. We should expect physical contact.
The good news is the game on Friday is in Boston. I am hopeful and I hope Doc Rivers has a game plan. Boston has the home court advantage. Go out there on Friday night, talk on defense, switch or fight over the pick roll, and show some intensity without all the techs!!!
It is important to take advantage of your moment in time. Boston this is your moment. CARPE DIEM!!!
