    Game Thread: Celtics vs Sixers, Game 5

    Which Celtics team will show up tonight?  It's now a best of three and all the pressure is on the Celtics.  Philly has nothing to lose with game 6 there on Wednesday.  We HAVE to win tonight.

    I think we respond, get the win in convincing fashion and push Philly to the brink of elimination.

    Forty-eight aggressive, San Antonio Spurs-style, disciplined, no let up, basketball and we'll be 1 win away from the ECF.

    Let's go get it!  Let's go Celtics!

    No AB tonight..  Celtics of the past 4 years are the most injured team in NBA history. Its almost unbelieveable how many bodies they lose each season.

    We need a good 48 minute effort...  how can these guys always say... we shoulds done this or that, we shoulda moved the ball..

    Enough of the overconfidence and general mental let downs.. We lose tonight, we in big trouble.

    I really think our best free agent move would be to hire the the Suns medical team. I mean what do I know, but the injuries the last four years are just ridiculous.

    Definitely agree that these injuries could be the difference in them winning or losing this series.  Although, all NBA teams have injuries especially this season.  The Eastern Conference had the most significant injuries to key players this year.   If we don't win tonight, this series is over.

    Ray is much better than he has been, and Pierce is at about 80% after 2 days off. we are fine.

    Agree that without Bradley, Rondo, KG, Pierce and Ray all have to have an impact on the game.  Even though, Pierce, and Ray are also injured.  I am even surprised that Ray is able to play and give him credit for whatever he can contribute.

    ray allen has fallen off a cliff....he is a major liability out there....if he isnt scoring, he hurts the team hugely because he isnt playing defense.

But I don't expect much from Ray. Others will get good shots, however, because they will push up on Ray.

    Maybe he shouldn't be playing.   If he isn't effective Doc needs to try other substitutions.

    Steamer is a great help defender, but he loosestrack of who is running around in the paint.

    I really expected PP to come out on fire being aggressive.  He's been so passive in his play (especially with his lazy passes).

    I cannot understand why our stars don't come out EVERY GAME with that sense of urgency.

    First quarter is over and PP has not even scored.  He's attempted one shot.  That's unacceptable.

Good decoy. We just have to hit the shots. On D, our help defenders are not getting back to their man after showing on the pick and roll.

Posted by Petey62[/QUOTE] Our stars are old and injured. They don't have the legs to go 100% all the time so I think they try to pace themselves to have something left in 4Q.
