    Game Thread: Celtics vs Sixers, Game 1

    Let's start out strong and play lock down defense.  Our perimeter players are going to have to step up.  Guys like Holiday, Turner, Iggy and Williams cannot get going or we're in trouble.

    Rondo, AB, Dooling and Pietrus are going to have to play exceptional defense.  Philly shot 40% or better in only one game in the Bulls series.  Let's hope they still have yet to find their offensive touch.

    Let's go Celtics......Let's go get it.

    Pietrus needs to be a factor offensively this series, he cant average 2 points a game ..

    I am concerned about this series. The Sixers are a high-flying team loaded with scorers. Boston is beat up. It would really help if Pietrus and Bass show up because you never know if Allen and Pierce will. When you consider that the following players are hurt for Boston: Bradley, Pierce, Allen, Pietrus just barely got back(is he still hurt? has he gotten his legs back?), Stiemsma-who isn't hurt for Boston? The Sixers are a very good team. Incredibly balanced. Anybody who thinks that this is going to be a cakewalk for Boston has never seen the Sixers play. I hope that I am wrong about this but I think that this is going to be a very very tough series.

    Rondo needs to penetrate the Sixers defense and stop trying to make those stupid passes..

    Oh I hate this start.  All we're doing is shooting perimeter shots and missing them.  Hawes and Brand are not shot blockers so we need to get to the rim.

    We need to attack the rim and quit shooting and missing perimeter shots.

    This is GAME ONE of the SECOND ROUND.  This is the playoffs.

    You'd expect the Celtics to come out with a little more fire and aggressiveness.  Philly right now is taking it to us.

    We cannot dig ourselves into these holes so early in the game.  It makes no sense.

    Getting only jump shots because no one is going to the hole hard.  

    We just don't like to do anything easy and added to our injuries, its going to be a struggle.

    Pierce gets fouled on our FIRST ATTEMPT AT ATTACKING THE RIM.

    If we take it to the rim, good things will happen.

    I don't like what I'm seeing so far. Sixers' 3 guard rotation is killing us. We can't BUY a bucket.

    We struggle with athletic teams. Sixers are tougher than the Hawks.

    Celtics are just a slower starting team.  Its like it takes a while for that engine oil to warm up.   But, we will have a run, the Garden will go crazy, and just like that, we'll be in it and playing well.

    I hope the players see that they're getting their butts kicked and start to go to the hole more aggressively and START REBOUNDING!

    Atlanta is just as athletic as Philly.  Even more so with their bigs.  Philly's athleticism isn't hurting us.

    What's hurting us is US!  Our settling for outside jumpers.  Our inablity to attack the basket.  The 3 times when we did, Pierce got fouled, Bass got fouled and Pierce got fouled a second time - all resulting in 6 made foul shots.

    The perimeter shots will come but we just have to keep attacking the rim.

    Bass and Steimer are out of position so often for rebounds and defense that I can just scream at the TV.
