    I still need someone to explain that 3rd foul on douglas. There was a little more than 3minuteson the gme clock and 15 seconds on the shot clock.

    TD looked over at the bench, then jumped up and fouled rondo for no damn reason. I surprised he didnt get 3shots. WTF was up with that bs.

    Im prtty sure that play where KG got the timeout was PURE BULLSH**, if the first onewas a jump ball, why not the second one? It was the same EXACT play.

    We wouldnt be in the situation where JJ gets the ball down 1 if they dont call that BS. Damn zebra cakes

    You're a hypocrite. I told you to STFU please and that no one was in the mood for your snide humor. You obviously took it personal enough to call me a loser and tell me to jump off a bridge...and I need anger management!? Further you went on "LABELING" me as a "bad" person who you would not cry over if I were to take your heartfelt advice to jump off that bridge. No, it's clear you are being inconsistent and trying to play enlightened but your every post betrays the persona you are now trying to project. I do not need to know you personally to conclude you are a troll. The very fact you decided to use "dry humor" and employ "irony" in response to our loss proves your status as a troll.
    I was merely defending myself because you had started with me by taking what I said personal.You decided to throw a hissy fit after you saw what I wrote, I was simply standing up for myself because I don't enjoy when people act like cyber bullies.Was I some what emotional when responding to you? I am man enough to admit that I was.And I don't see how joking about a loss is trolling unless you believe that everyone who jokes about a loss does it with the intentions of trolling.


    So save your talk about being vulgar when you "could have easily avoided" this confrontation and let myh comment go. Instead you decided to try and needle me knowing I was pissed off about the game and further "LABELING" and attacking me well before I took the gloves off. So in conclusion, you are clearly a troll and hypocrite to boot. I suggest you turn that critical eye on yourself and further examine yourself since your recent epiphany about not being emotional obviously fell by the wayside.
    I knew that you were pissed off about the game.When I decided to post in this thread, did I intend to kick you while you were emotionally down? Absolutely not! You started with me by venting out your frustration on me and misinterpreting my intentions of being on this thread.And being emotionally enslaved to a basketball game is far different from getting emotional when defending yourself from personal attacks.



    P.S. The fact that you stated you used to be emotional and now are not(clearly not the case) illuminates an obvious crisis point in your life and need for change. I suggest you look back on what prompted you to feel compelled to make this change and worry about that rather than me.
    I never said that I stopped being emotional to everything in life.I had stated that trivial things such as what happens on a basketball court don't control my emotional well being anymore because they're more important things for me to worry about.

    i gotta agree with mafra right there. the previous few posessions, everytime melo got the ball, big fat fkin baby came running to double and get the ball out of his hands and melo had no choice but to pass it out.
    on that last possession, melo should not have gotten the ball with 11+ seconds left because that means he is gonna hold the ball for a few seconds which means the double is gonna come.
    give melo the ball with 6 seconds left that way he has to make a move quickly and whether it be a jumper, drive or a drive and kick out, at least the double team isnt there to force him into giving up the ball .
    i just dont understand why mike dantoni doesnt do a better job of not just designing plays but also clock management and play calling.
    btw isnt it ironic, this coach was roasted all season for not preaching defense and now for the past 2 games, (im not saying he should get the credit) our boys have dugg deep down and manned up and played great defense and put their heart out there. and its the offense that hes being out coached on! go figure.

    MDA did nothing wrong. You can second guess all day but that's the beauty of hindsight.

    MDA has say 5 options. No matter which one he picks if the ball doesn't end up in the net you're all going to want one of the other four. Do you really think you are all so revolutionary that if you're not all agreeing on the same option it's not the most obvious and therefore easiest to read. Then you're crying he's too predictable.

    Rewind to when we imbound to JJ and he off the dribble takes it to the hoop, none of you expect that but it works and thus no one is here moaning about it despite the fact not one of you would have drawn up that play.

    Not sure which play you're talking about is that the JJ layup that got us the 93-92 lead with 20 seconds left to play? Because if it is, do you really think the play that was drawn up by MDA was for JJ to get the ball & dribble penetrate to the hole for a layup? That was a broken play & happened off a wild, frantic sequence where we got an offensive rebound after a missed Roger Mason layup attempt & JJ just found himself with a wide open lane to the basket, in fact it wasn't even off an inbounds pass TD got the ball passed back to him from Melo after Mason's missed layup because the Celtics instantly rushed to double Melo, & TD tried to penetrate off JJ's set to pick. Instead he ended up getting cut off by Rondo & passed the ball to JJ so he could try to run off his pick high & either get the ball to Melo again, who the Celtics were overplaying on ball denial, or get off a 3 pt shot himself, which left JJ with the ball in his hands & a wide open lane to the rim, which he recognized & took advantage of. Coaches don't draw up crazy plays like that, they just happen. I don't care if you're talking about MDA or Red Auerbach.

    LMAO you tell me to fck off and call me out and then you go say this?!?! Another MDA homer who knows sweet fck all about basketball.

    That JJ layup that gave us the lead was a designed play?! HAHAHAHAHAHA.... Jefferies was about to pass that ball away before realising "oh wait there is no one here" and took it to the rim... Seriously!

    Jefferies did fine this game, good even overall. Can't beat on him for that last play, he shouldn't even be in the game and if he is he should be on the opposite side of the court from the ball keeping a defender out the way and THATS IT.

    And keeping us in the game? Yeah it was MDA who made Melo go for probably the best game of his entire career...

    From now on you are known as mini-KFFQ

    We lost this game for 3 reasons:

    1) Landry Fields hurting us big time with his turnovers and bad defense against Ray Allen

    2) Nobody providing some scoring aside from Melo

    3) We turned Rajon Rondo into Allen Iverson


    Yes it's true, the refs ****ed us in both games, but we should have won game 2 comfortably. BOston were even weaker than in game 1 and Melo was unreal!

    Letting Rondo get easy baskets is inexcusable. Sickening. I bet you anything Walt Frazier could have been out there and played better defense.

    It's not the first time I've seen Rondo get easy baskets either. In the 2008-2009 season he did this against the Nets. Either teams are that focused on Allen, Garnet, and Pierce, or Rondo is putting spells on players.

    This is bull****.

    At this point I would start Roger Mason Jr. in game 3 & have Landry come off the bench. Maybe in that role he gets a new sense of bringing some energy & hustle & gets back to what he does best. Mason is seasoned well experienced in these types of big games I think he will do a solid job if given the opportunity, particularly on defense. We can't afford another no show game out of Landry these games are all must wins from here on out.

    I won't say what you're known as other than clueless if you think leaving one player under the basket for you to drive at is not a planned move. Do you think that we got within 3 points of the C's in their own back yard with no players by dumb luck?

    Both Celtics are drawn to the ball and the pass. JJ makes a move that no one expects (after a time out) this is JJ a man who doesn't know any offence at all and is known for playing it safe.... and you think he decided that he was just going to have his own moment? Yeah right. Melo and Douglas are exactly where they are supposed to be.

    So what if he was supposed to pass, how many other plays start that way? It's called having options you complete moron. You're sitting here and you're no one, you're nothing, no one cares who you are or what you do and you want to quiz MDA after a go ahead basket because you don't get it and claim anyone else is the idiot? Please.
