    SA dismantled Miami in every possible way.  It wasn't just a Heat meltdown, either.  They got dominated from the get go. Imo, no way LA beats SA in a long series.

    What do the Spurs have to do they have Miami by 9 games have a greater record against common teams. they Have a win% equal to the Celtics against teams with a better than 500 record and have been rated lower than Miami all season in the rankings. The Celtics and the Spurs are so much alike in many ways they are as evenly matched as it gets.

    In Response to Re: Heat lose again -- Separation occurring : I wouldn't bet much on it if I was you.  The Spurs are a lot like us.  Hard to think they are just going to start losing because of one player.  The will adapt.

    Something tells me we will beat the Spurs if we play them even without home court.  Something re the Spurs does not convince me although I do not underestimate them.  Can they really beat the Lakers?  I am not convinced under the spotlight they will hold up

    The Heat have a real problem with Wade and Lebron at crunch time.  Neither is a great decision maker and they have no one who can distribute the ball to them.

    They are the distributors at the same time as being the go to guys.  I think the problem is so significant it cannot be addressed this year.  Two superstar ball hogs and a bunch of poor role players do not make for toughing games out in the last moments.  Look for them to play close games and come out losing most of the time.  Except for the Lakers who they will be in Miami later this week.

    I honestly don't like that the Heat are losing right now. I rather them go through this in the playoffs but Lebron is a world class choker and Bosh is going to get pushed around by KG all series long so I am relaly not worried.

    How many last second shots has Lebron taken and missed the past couple weeks?  I mean, he hasnt hit one of them.

    I can guarantee you one thing though... when he does hit one to win the game, it'll be splashed all over espn like hes a big time clutch player.

    You are right - however I will say there has actually been some questioning of LeBron recently on ESPN - never thought I would see the day

    Re: Heat lose again -- Separation occurring

    Celts are 3 games back in the loss column from the Spurs.  If we were to beat them at home, that's being down 2 in the loss column and we would own the tie breaker.  So, its not inconceivable that we can catch the SPurs.  I know some think that's not possible, but I think its a possibility when looking at their schedule.

    As Rameakap says, however, we have to take care of the back to backs.   I think this team can do it if we get Delonte, Shaq, and Wafer back soon.   We will have fewer let down periods of the game if those 3 can be woven in.   Forget Arroyo and Murphy and Sasha.  Each of them will fill a couple of minutes here and there, but West and Shaq are the real keys.   Then we can be VERY versatile all game long with scoring and defense.

    Bulls have the easiest schedule of the contenders, though, so they do pose a threat if we lose those back to backs and lose focus on weaker opponents.

    I think our schedule is pretty favorable.

    Re: Heat lose again -- Separation occurring

    With the disruption of the trades and the continued injuries to our bigs, worrying about home court throughout the playoffs is no longer the chief concern, it's beating injuries and having a decent seed and rounding into form at the right time. The Celts don't need home court advantage with any of the teams in the east either. Home court against the Lakers is a different story due to the finals 2-3-2 format. 

    No, the Lakers might not make it. But the idea that San Antonio is so much better than the Lakers is absurd. Did you watch the game today? The Bulls look to me like the toughest matchup for the Cs but they aren't a team that intimidates anyone on the Celtics either.

    Of course beating injuries and getting to the playoffs healthy is the number 1 goal!  But, that doesn't mean they can't do both (hope for best record, as well).  Players SHOULD start to come back healthy over the next week or so (West, Shaq, Wafer) and with that help, rest comes to the starters as well as better overall team play.  There's no reason we shouldn't challenge for best record as well as get healthy.

    My biggest fear is no longer losing to the Heat... it is losing the april 7th game @ Chicago, finishing the season tied with them... and getting the 2 seed b/c of a 1-2 record vs. them

    No we would be 2 and 2 if we lost

    RE: the Queen.  He is sooo protected by the referees; like when he trips himself and gets a call - totally absurd.  He gets bailed out all the time and it's sickening, and when he does get a call he cries like a baby.  He's is probably the best big-time choker ever in the NBA.  The question is not how many last-second shots does he make, it's all about how many he misses, including important free throws at the end of games.  In the Los Bulls game, the raking Rose endured compared to the Queen's gifts should have been embarrassing to the League.  If ever there was an truly unlikable "mega-star", his name is LeBron.  Why any kids (or weird adults) would buy his shirt is beyond me since he epitomizes a complainer and a proven loser.

    Portland took it to em tonite.  Now 6 up on the Heat and 3 up on the Bulls.  I'm wondering if all the rest Doc & the Docs (almost like the sound of that) are giving Shaq, Von, Baby, West, etc, is related to the cushion we've gotten lately.  Our growing lead couldn't have come at a better time.

    Kind of down on Lebron, huh Painter!  Smile.....he pissed me and you and everyone else off with that "we're going to win 3, 4, 5, maybe 6 championships" thing when he's never won a thing.  I'm glad the arrogant "so and so" is losing. 

    However, I don't think he's a choker just because he's losing.  He's losing because he has no support and the system he's in does not play team ball.  Losing doesn't make you a choker.  Barkley never won a championship.  Neither did Malone.  Before Boston, neither did KG.  Jordan always came up short until both Boston and Detroit got old.  Only then did he break through.

    Why - because they didn't have a team that was good enough.  They were tough, physically and mentally, but they needed a good coach, a good system, and good teammates.  No matter how good you are.....you can't do it alone. That's Lebron's problem and until someone MAKES him give up the ball and let his PG do their job, Lebron will never win!

    What if Miami continues to lose and falls to the 4th seed?  It's certainly possible if you've seen Miami's schedule.  After the Lakers, they play Memphis, San Antonio, OKC so their losing streak could continue on for awhile. 

    That means Chicago and Orlando would play in the 2nd round and you guys would play Miami.  You guys are 3-0 against them but something tells me its not what most Celtic fans would want even though there is alot of Heat bashing going on.
