Zack Zarba reffing the game tonight. He can be bad but I expect an OK whistle tonight since ESPN is all in on Tatum promos this week.

I'm fine with Zarba - the NBA's intensions would have been obvious with Tony Brothers or Scott Foster - all this being said lets just ice this game early so Ref involvement is a non-factor!

Wasnít gonna be Foster as he reffed last night, but I was expecting to see Brothers. Iím also fine with Zarba, before game 3 of the Bucks series I thought he was a pretty solid official. I shouldnít pull a complete 180 off one game.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing

I'm listening to Dray and Scal and about every talking head the sports world can ask, and everyone is saying, "it's all over."
It's gonna be the Warriors and Celtics. While everyone is plotting and planning what each team has to do to win the series.

"Boston is bigger."

"The Warriors shoot better and have been there before."

"The Celtics are younger with younger legs and they defend better."

On and on the talk goes. I just hope the young Celtics aren't listening. Cause this can go sideways really quickly. Our young Celtics would become poster-children for any team choking. And it would effect them for years to come.

Please coaching staff, be aware of this.

You are right.  I hate all this talk too.  Even on this blog, where people should know better, there are multiple threads or posts analyzing the GSW-BOS match up already.  STOP, there is plenty of time for that later.

I acknowledge that the Celtics are in a very good position.  It is on a silver platter for them.  But that is going to seem far in the past if we start the game 1-9 with 5 turnovers or something like that while the Heat run off 4 or 5 straight 3s.

I really believe that the Celtics players, coaches, management, trainers, ball boys, everyone, understand this too but as a team, they can't even let those thought get in their heads for even a second.  Don't even crack the door.  The Heat are going to be desperate and they going to pounce if we let down even 1% from how we can play.  Don't let that happen.

Yeah, I was fine with Zarba before that Bucks game.  He has a chance for redemption with me, but man was that game called poorly.

They need to use game 3 as an example this aint over at all.

Brothers was in the replay center for Game 5 so I think that's why he isn't there today. He was still technically part of that Game 5 crew just not on the floor. I'll take it!

Yep. Also your username made me remember, this was just a little over 9 years ago when PG13 dunked over Miami's Birdman lol:



Those Heat-Pacers series were always entertaining. Wish the Pacers won though

What you say is logical and rational but I am far more superstitious or whatever than that.  This is no time to be messing around with Karma or to be sending the wrong message to the basketball gods.   I do not plan to give any thought whatsoever to GSW or the finals schedule or anything like that out of respect to the basketball karma gods.   And I suggest that is the best course of action for any and all Celtics fans to follow.

They're saying the right things.

Quote
Derrick White on people saying series is over: "That's just the nature of the game. You lose 1 game, they think you're done. You win one game, they think you're gonna win it all. So just trying to stay consistent, not get too high, not get too low, not really listening to that."

Quote
Grant Williams: "You can't look past a team at any stage. You can't think about the next game, against this team especially. This is a team that is going to come out and give you their best punch. You have to be able to withstand that and compete through it."

Erik Spoelstra says he will stick with the starting lineup of Lowry, Strus, Butler, Tucker and Adebayo tonight.

A lot of people have said he should sit Lowry.

me too. REDEMPTION TIME!

THE REVENGE TOUR CONTINUES

THese are not the kids who choked at home in a game 7 against the cavs in 2018. They are tired of hearing how they blew a 2-0 then 3-2 lead that series. They are tired of hearing how we blew a 3-2 lead in 2012 against the heat.

That is not happening tonight. JT and crew will be mad, angry and ready. They are tired of hearing how this is our 4th ECF in 6 years and still have not made it over the hump.

IT IS PAST TIME.

IT IS OUR TIME

OUR TIME IS NOW!

TD GARDEN will be buzzing and we sill sting the miami heat like a mad hornets nest tonight.

GREEN RUNS DEEP

C US RISE

IT'S NOT LUCK

LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

time to put all past demons to bed

TONIGHT

IT IS GOING DOWN
LET'S GO CELTICS!
