    It gets more difficult (What else is new)

    Wanted the Pacer-Heat series to go 7 and us to finish off the 6'ers in 5 or 6.
    Heat just finished Pacers off in Game 6 and we've got a Game 7 to take care of if we are to advance to the next round.
    So, they get more rest and we get less.
    I think for the remainder of our postseason, I will be watching with one eye closed.
    The road keeps getting tuffer.
    Sucks, but I'm glad we're still in the hunt.

    Not sure at all what hunt you are talking about.

    We are fast playing out the string IMHO.

    Well let's see Puddin...

    I'm pretty sure that the hunt he's talking about is that we're in the playoffs, second round and about to play game 7.

    Unless I slept through it and the 6ers won, I'd say that makes us in the hunt.

    I'm pretty sure we're in the hunt until a final buzzer sounds in a deciding game with us behind.

    Might we not score more points than them on Saturday and win?

    Might we not possibly do something in the next round?

    Isn't that why they play the games?

    If you've got a way to predict the future, let us know won't you?

    Otherwise I'm with whoever says we're still in the hunt!

    Hate to say but that's not a good sign.

    That is why the Celtics must come out and put the sixers out of their misery ealy so the starters can rest the fourth quarter!!

    Ya but we'll have the momentum & they'll be a bit stale (HA!!!!). I dusted off my old copy of Dale Carnegie's "Power of Positive Thinking" while making the aforementioned comment.

    They should have won it in 5.  They blew an 18 pt lead in game 4 and now feels like its coming back to haunt us.

    " We are fast playing out the string IMHO."

    Only because Bradley is out for good and Allen and Pierce are gimped up. If that weren't the case we'd be seriously in the hunt for the Finals. 

    As it stands we should give the Heat some tough games. I'll be rooting hard for the team even if their fate is semi-sealed. Will you?

    Remember Orlando in 2010.  Weren't we up 3 zip and then couldn't close, and then the series dragged out and Rondo got a back injury, etc etc.
    It's dejavu all over again, to quote a pinstriper.

    It would be great to see this happen, but they haven't dominated many games during the playoffs this season.  I expect that it will be a very close game.

    The issue for me is if they is win how will they play the Heat without Bradley?  We are now a team without a two guard.  Pietrus and Pavlovic will have to play like stars. That is if Doc plays them.

    Doc doesn't really have any choice.  He can't expect Ray to play the entire game considering that he is trying to play with an injury.  In order for us to have a chance of winning game 7 both Pietrus and Pavlovic both have to contribute.  The key to game 7 is Pierce, KG, Rondo and Bass all have one of their best playoff games.  Although, I would say that Rondo is the most important factor to our winning this game.  If Rondo isn't dominant we will probably lose.

    Re: It gets more difficult (What else is new)

    I think if we can win tomorrow, our best chance to sneak one in Miami is Monday. The C's don't like 3-4 days rest, they play better when they have 1-2 days off and stay on schedule. Hopefully the Heat will cool down if they're sitting 3 days. Of course let's win tomorrow first.

    I expect big games from Rondo and KG

    This team doesn't handle prosperity well. They have to be criticized, up against a wall and challenged to get the best out of them. I don't know why but that's their makeup.

    If the Cs push past Philly on Sat. then DOC must use more fresh bodies against the Heat. And the key: physical. The Cs must play very physical.

    Now back to the fresh bodies idea. Since the Cs have had very little rhythm throughout the playoffs then this idea should not disrupt any flow. Quicker substituions. More bench players with 2 or 3 starters at a time. If a balance can be struck, that will keep the Cs a bit fresher longer. And will keep everyone engaged.

    The Celtics could still potentially beat the Heat.  It will be extremely difficult without Bradley and with half a Ray Allen but the could.  SA and OKC would be even more difficult.

    With that said they have to win tonight obviously.

    Good year though either way.  I didn't expect much at all from this team.

    Re: It gets more difficult (What else is new)

    I agree. I think Ainge built the roster to deal with Wade & Bron...defense on the wings. Bradley will be missed but I think Doc will use Pav/Quis/Pietrus/Ray to cover both of them switching from time to time.

    I would also like to see Sean Williams get some run. his athleticism and size at the rim will help KG/Steemer/Hollins.

    Forgive me for looking past the Sixers but I just can't see the Big 4 blowing this opportunity tomorrow.

    Re: It gets more difficult (What else is new)

    Its a flip of the coin if we get past the 76ers...No lead is safe for either team and we have been miserable offensively.

    Should we beat the 6ers, I hold only the very slightest of hope at all agasint winning the Heat series.  Not with Ray playing like he is with injury and certainly not with AB out, who has shown an ability to check Wade..  We dont have a #2 and our best 1on1 defender and our best 3 baller.  They say Bosh will get back sometime this series. Even if he doesnt, slim to none is our chances imo.

    But I will say this, this team has a chance to accomplish more than I thought at beginning of season., I thought make the playoffs..maybe 1st round but not 2nd round... With the emergence of AB ( total shock to me) it really turned things for us..

    Dunno if I can get fired up for game 7.

    My bunion is really killing me... and don't ask how a macho guy like me gets bunions.
