Big game!

Statement opportunity for a lot of guys!

Looking at Al to exorcise some Lebron demons, Kyrie to put on a show, maybe Jayson Tatum officially announces his ROY candidacy? Who knows?

Somebody will get up big and the other team will come storming back. Game is tight in the winning time.

I hope we don't get killed by Kevin Love tonight.

It always seems like while we focus on Lebron a ton, Kevin Love out of nowhere just has his best games against us.

Even last year's playoffs, he averaged 22 points, 12 rebounds a game in the 5 games.

Can't leave him out open in the perimeter all game, or he'll kill us there.

Unfortunately, Horford isn't a great match up for him, so we'll see how they handle Love tonight.

If Horford gets 20 points and Rozier or Morris have big games, I think we'll win.

The only unfortunate part is that LeBron tries extra hard against the Celtics. He never takes games off against them, especially at the Garden.

Interesting note, the Cavs are slight underdogs in this game (3 points). I am not that confident.

It will be an emotional game, with 5 technicals called (4 on the Celtics, one on Cleveland - Crowder most likely).  Someone on Cleveland will also earn a flagrant 1.
2018 Mock Trade Deadline:

Pelicans: Davis, Holiday, Vucevic, Rondo, Clarkson, Nance, Hart, Moore, Ilyasova, Ajinca, Hill, Miller, Jackson, Dotson, Dakari Johnson

Warriors:  KD, Steph, Klay, Draymomd, Iggy, Zaza, Young, Livingston, McGee, West, McCaw, Jones, Casspi, Jones, Looney

Google for picks.

If motivated, playoff-LeBron shows up, I donít know if we can match the intensity.

Iím sure Kyrie will be amped for it, but will everyone else on the Cís be? You know LeBron and Crowder will be, and that should be enough to rally their team.

We shall see. Been awhile since we thoroughly outplayed Cleveland, tonight would be a good time to do that.

Lebron is ready he has four teamates on the floor and his three refs .....for a total of 8 on 5 .....

Lebron will get his patiented FREE pushoff with arms , elbows and hands on every offensive drive and the freethrows that go with pushoff.

Morris starting.

Just a comment on Crowder. I think he was overrated when he was here. He certainly has been bad for Cleveland. Sick of his attitude. He looks tough but isn't (remembering the game where JR Smith intentionally flung his arm around and hit him in the face with no repercussions). Jae is really a pu**y in a tough guy body. I hope our 19 or 20 year old puts you on a poster!

Okay, I think this is a bit excessive, but I will admit that Crowder's effort on the defensive end last year really did frustrate me. Definitely took a BIG step back there last season.

Of course, part of the reason MIGHT have been the C's cheering Hayward (opponent) and Crowder starting to get more annoyed with the C's fans, but still, I think Crowder sort of took it far with the whole Twitter rant afterwards, and then you could kind of tell his time in Boston was coming to an end. Ainge may have played around it at the time saying he spoke with Crowder, but I think even Ainge was a bit annoyed by it too.
