I actually snagged two 12$ seats for tomorrow's game on Celtics.com today.  I couldn't believe it.

I can wait another day if it means I get to see another Suns-Spurs game...what a treat that series is, I just hope the Suns can seal the deal this game, and this series.  They were my surrogate team to root for when the C's stank, so I'd like to see them knock off their nemeses at the very least. Dallas-NO should be a good leadin too.

This definitely is way too long in between games, in a series like this, against a very inferior opponent, it wont matter, but in a real series this delay kills any momentum.

Agreed on the Suns, I want the Spurs to fall!!

Dallas-NO and Phoe-SA should be good.

Heck, even ORL-TOR could be a good game...Toronto would have been a 45-46 win team if Bosh and Ford hadn't been injured for that disastrous stretch of the regular season.  I don't think they've got a chance in the series but they could steal a road game if they get hot.

Is any channel other than NBA TV showing the Orlando vs Toronto game? I will be ticked off if one of the Celtics games goes over to NBA TV during the playoffs and not shown in a national channel.

The Mavs have GOT to make some adjustments, and soon, or this will be over in four. N'Orleans is not flawless, and Dallas has the tools to deal with them effectively, (to a point, I should add).

They got to stop double teaming Paul.  They are having no effect on him, they are weak, and their defensive rotations are awful.

Totally agree, BC, (TP) ... you've got to just allow CP3 his points ... there's little you can do with a player of his caliber, and spending too much defensive energy on him is weakening them up everywhere else. Let the guy go, and shut down the rest.

Wow...what a sequence by Peja.

Absolutely no urgency from Dallas right now.  They seem to ho-hum out there and now they're getting killed.

Orlando vs. Toronto is on 881 (Mojo) if you have HD - at the half, pretty tight game so far

The Magic-Raptors game is great. Sam Mitchell went small in the second quarter and a mano-o-mano duel between Bosh and Dwight is developing on both ends of the floor. Bosh has 23 points at halftime. The Raptors pulled back an 18 point first quarter deficit to tie. Howard has 13 and 10. It's a lot of fun watching Bosh bang with Dwight defensively.

The Dallas game has been sort of dull. The Mavs can't do anything with that high screen and roll. Paul is just killing them with that one play.

Can New Orleans sweep Dallas? Kidd can't stop Paul. Their bigs can't stop NO's bigs. Josh Howard hasn't shown up. Kidd has been thoroughly outplayed, he's been above average but he's not having much of an impact. Dirk is the only Dallas starter that can hold his head high. The only time Dallas' offense looks good is when they run an isolation play for Dirk, that's how ugly it's been for them. New Orleans are rolling.
