Very mirrored outcome to this point.  Celtics were lower seed.  Took two on the defending conference champís homecourt then smoked them on at home on Game 3.  Magic took game 4 at the Garden in OT.  Showed lots of heart and ended up winning Game 5 in Orlando too.

I just really want the Celts to show some heart.

Go down fighting like the Lakers at least.
Yup

I agree. Show some emotion and try to get a win. Letís see who among these players really care. I have a feeling if we get game 4, game 5 at home will be another win.

If the C's win tonight I'd be pretty surprised if they didn't win game 5, so it would come down to game 6. I'd expect Miami to close it out at home, but who knows.  Big game tonight.  They need to show some fire and fight
I was finally wrong. Boston not only didn't win in 5, but didn't win at all.

Yeah I feel the exact way.

Either two things will happen. They already quit, so they come out and get blown out tonight. OR, they win Game 4, then win Game 5 at home and push it to Game 6 on Saturday night.

That said, they've needed to show some fire/fight in the past two games and they simply haven't so that's discouraging. Really making me sour on this group as a whole.

This team ain't like PP and KG. They were down 0-3 and it became 2-3 against the Knicks.

That C's team started that wild 20-0 run to cut the deficit to 4 against the Knicks and almost scared them, forcing Game 7.

TP - this came to mind for me too!  I liked our play in that series.  Getting a 3-0 lead is tough.  Orlando got game 4 and we had some injuries in game 5.  People were getting antsy (I think the Bruins had just blown a 3-0 lead) and we finished them in 6.  I think this series goes 6 as well.
