I'm really suprised how weak the Magic look, they're not getting anything from Leiws (over-paid waste) and their bench.

Looks like another Boston/Lakers Finals.

Agreed. Both were kinda dirty, but it is playoff basketball after all.

The words: BEST GRAPHIC EVER.

Nice!!

[QUOTE=pac213up;578941]Nothing wrong with either of the fouls. Playoff basketball. Pierce said it was a good Playoff foul. Unlike Miller he did not cry while shooting the foul shots.

Celtics would be going for a three-peat had KG not been injured last year. No team in the East can touch their starters. The NBA is all about who has the most superstars (Celtics) or quality depth (Lakers). In a watered down league with far more teams then actual players to stock the teams (not athletes, players) the Celts (when healthy) and Lakers have had the most supestars and depth the last few years and it shows. I don't follow the NBA anywhere near as closely as I did growing up because its tough watching games when teams can't score a basket for half a quarter and its not because of great defense. A team from back in my day that could never get past the great Lakers,Celtics, Sixers or Pistons teams would be a dynasty today. Really good playoff teams like the Spurs, Hawks or Bucks would be a dynasty in today's NBA. Next time Stern talks about moving a team that doesn't sell seats he should just fold that team instead of relocating because you can't be taken seriously as a league when you have really bad teams making the playoffs year in year out.

Another Celts - Lakers Finals would bring back memories for me but it would also remind me of how terrible Stern has been and how he's ruined what was once a great league.

Pretty funny watching the ESPN post game, they are just ripping Orlando! They feel the Magic have just given up, no intensity and they feel Orlando has NO CHANCE to even win one! Bring on the Lakers! This should be a great Final AGAIN!!!!!

Dear Dwight Howard,

THANK YOU for waking up this sleeping giant by shoving your hand in a Celtics players face for the 63rd time this series (none of them have been called by the way.)

Making sure it was KG this time was a big plus!

So once again, thank you! The Celts had been sleepwalking through this one so far!

Not just you. Fans from all NBA teams have noticed it tonight. Pretty obvious that the league wanted a 6th game.

I have no issue with the fouls called or not called but some of the T's were silly. Perk has two that should be rescinded. The NBA will only rescind one as they need to save face a bit. Either way Orlando was the better team in the last 2 games. I thought it would be a 6 game series from the start.

Orlando is a very good team, especially when they hit the 3's. I expect Doc to make some slight adjustments defending the double picks. Until then of course everyone will greatly exaggerate Orlando's chances of winning the series.

Yeah I guess the refs made the 13 three pointers they hit and went 52% from downtown.

Has nothing to do with being a game saver,and if you can honestly say the T was justified,you might be the worst kind of homer there is

Perkins being tossed factors into many parts of a gameplan from rotations,defensive game plan and on & on.

Take the blinders off and you'll see you might be the only person who watched the game,or have seen the highlights who thinks the 2nd T was justified

Did I say it was justified? No, but to not see the Magic just outplayed the C's your kidding yourself and need to take the blinders off yourself.

What blinders? Last thing I am is a Celtics fan,just someone who understands basketball more than just the laundry I root for. Refs were calling soft fouls all night long on the Celtics and if you think that had nothing to with how the game went,go throw on that laundry and keep dreaming

That's pretty funny considering Pierce gets every touch foul called his way and Rondo falls consistently. I guess you wearn't watching Game 3 when Rondo dove after gracefully running into Lewis himself and acting like he got hit by a diesel truck.

Vince Carter got a Technical in game 2 for watching a foul that shouldn't be called in the first place on one of the sideline monitors, and throwing his hand out as if to say no way come on that isn't a foul. Vince didn't say or make any motion towards the refs, it was all towards the sideline monitor he was watching

Perkins deserved that tech, because what he did was worse than what Vince did to get one in game two. Heck, when Wallace got his 6th foul, he did the same hand motion AT ONE OF THE REFS and DIDN'T get a T called.

No one needs to take their homer goggles off but you. I know basketball more than likely better than you. I've watched it for 18 years, coached little league, refereed games, and go to almost every magic home game. Does that qualify me to post this without you telling me I have homer goggles on? The T was justified, as Perkins had been arguing calls all night, and the ref who gave out the T just got sick of it. Happens ALL the time in the NBA. If you complain the way perkins was, or the way Howard does a lot of games, you are going to get T'd up. Howard gets T's all the time for simply arguing calls all night and the refs finally get fed up with it. It is also possible that he said something derogatory which would most definitely warrant a T

The league might recend one of the Ts but only because Wallace might be out with back problems, and Big Baby might have a concussion, and there is no way the league would let their money team go into game 6 at home with litterally no big men.
