Agreed.  I think he can do a decent job covering McConnell, at least TJ cant shoot over him.

WE NEED TO WIN THIS GAME. GO OUT AND KILL THE 76ERS.

Treat this game like a Game 7, or we will have an actual Game 7.
That's the bottom-line, and if it goes 7 then this C's roster will limp into the ECF after 2 7-game series.

Agreed.  For some reason I was nervous going into game 4, maybe because our group is so dependent upon effort and team basketball.  The margin for error remains small against any opponent. 

We have a more athletic team from top to bottom than Philly, but the overall talent discrepancy is minimal at best.  Games 2 and 3 could have easily gone the other way.  I would hate to give Philly their irrational confidence back.  The pressure falls squarely on us for the remainder of the series.  I really hope this thing ends tonight.

That would be nice, as Rozier certainly couldn't. I thought he was a decent defender, but McConnell blew by him multiple time the other night. He was flat out awful.

I think Rozier needs to stop gambling on defense and focus staying in front of his man and put a hand up every time.

1. REBOUND

2. Don't play the stupid little games with the Suxers who are trying to bait Boston

3. Get a fair shake from the refs. That in game 4 was one sided and fixed.

4. Get the crowd into it and punish them inside

Nobody wants to get back on a plane and play another game in Philly. This will only give Philly confidence that they can pull off the improbable.

Tonight has to be it. Everything you need it at home. Embarrassing performance, Suxers talking trash...get it done tonight.

James Capers, Tom Washington and Zach Zarba are the officials for Game 5 between Boston and Philadelphia. Nothing with that assignment should raise any eyebrows.

Yep, I'll admit I'm feeling a bit uneasy about this one. I know we're up 3-1 and we didn't have much of a chance in game 4 because of the way the first half was whistled but I hope T.J doesn't go off again (Rozier looked unable to guard him) and the Sixers' shooters don't catch fire.

I'll trust Brad and the team to treat this game like they should because if they lose we can be sure they'll be playing back in Boston for game 7. Go Celtics !

Boston has been pretty good in these types of situations under Brad. They had to have game 5 vs the Bulls, Washington last season as well as the Bucks this season...I think if they can rebound and play legit defense they will be fine.

Rozier is a different guy in the Garden.
