Pathetic display of basketball this quarter.  Meanwhile the Hawks playing uncharacteristically well.  It won't last.


Broussard: "Did you call bank?"
Pierce: "I called game."

The Celtics could fall behind 48-10 now via a 30-0 run, and I'd STILL think they would win this game!  :laugh:

This game has trap written all over it.

Hoping for 15!
Because they will distracted by looking ahead to the Mavs?   ;D  If anything it's the opposite of a trap game after GSW.

Call it a letdown game then.  After the emotional high of the Golden State win they might not have that same focus and intensity.

What I think will prevent such a game, however, is that Atlanta nearly won 12 days ago, so they’ll know to take them seriously.

Guess I was wrong in my second paragraph.  Sadly should have stuck with my first.
“When an alien resides with you in your land, you shall not oppress the alien. The alien who resides with you shall be to you as the citizen among you; you shall love the alien as yourself, for you were aliens in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”

Leviticus 19:33-34

Um, you would think after just the other night with coming back from a 17 point deficit to the best team in the league that a 15 point first quarter deficit to a bottom-5 team would not invoke this type of post.

The ref was behind the play, but somehow called a foul on Brown on the contact in front of the players?? Lots of soft calls going against us right now.

Either way, pathetic display by the C's out there.

I think they should roll the dice with Baynes in this one.

If it makes anyone fell any better, GS is down double digits to the Sixers.

ok I dont have a stream, missed score watching until I just got home.
I was worried about this being the classic let down trap game.
So is that what it looks like so far?  Have we finished celebrating beating the warriors yet?

It would cheapen our win over them if they lose to the Sixers.

Well, somehow, someway, despite that UGLY start, it's just a 14 point deficit.

Last year's team would be down like 24 at this point LOL.

Can't always be doing this man. Trailing by 17 or 20 every other night is unacceptable and is a cause for downfall down the road. Celtics gotta start off firing in all cylinders. The Hawks are a motivated bunch tonight. They want to be THE TEAM to snap that 14-game winning streak, that's their motivation!

Meh. Hot shooting to start by the Hawks on multiple contested threes, coupled with a few defensive breakdowns that led to Hawk layups.

Sky is not falling, but we have to pick up the energy.
