It's 2:27 am here in Greece. The game starts at 4 am local time. I can fall asleep and watch it tomorrow on replay (with no adds during timeouts), but for some stupid reason I wanna watch it live.

The season is on the line. Let's go C's!


Thatís because you bleed green and your adrenaline is starting to go up for game 7.

Here's what needs to happen, IMO:

1) Stick Smart, and only Smart, on Lowry. Smart doesn't come out unless Lowry does. When Lowry comes back in, Smart comes back in.

2) Do not leave Ibaka open at the 3pt line. Seems a bit ridiculous to me to have to say that, as though he's Ray Allen, but for this series he has been that good.

3) If the Raps are going to keep focusing on Kemba, have Smart bring up the ball and run Kemba off screens. The Celtics MUST find ways for Kemba to get the ball with room to drive or shoot.

4) The Cs must also find a way to get Tatum open looks, and he needs to make them.

5) Lockdown defense from everyone, especially at the 3pt line.

6) Limit turnovers.

7) Relax.
Looks like a winning strategy for me

I like it - does Stevens know these things ??

Especially important is #6 on your list. Dribbling recklessly into traffic on key possessions is killing the Celtics. A high school coach would know to tell his players to stop and back out of or pass out of defensive traffic. Oh yeah,  also, lots of attention on defensive rebounding.

What happens if this Denver game goes past 6/9 est (which is likely they never end at the slotted times) does the game just start and we canít see it?

This is so messed up

Yeah why did they move game 7 to prime time and then let this [dang] Nuggets game go on for so long?

I wouldn't even attempt to get thru this one sober. Already on my 2nd Double Crown.

Just not a good feeling about this - we had two golden opportunities to put this series away and blew up both of them.

This must be what the '84 Lakers felt like.

Let's go C's! Been waiting all day for this.
Fully onboard the Fire Brad Train.

Will the game not start until the clippers/nuggets are over?

This is a game, that can put C's mentality on a championship level. You need to embrace this kind of opportunities, because they are the ones that help you to grow as a whole.
Just hope guys will be able to meet all the expectations fans and they themselves have tonight)

Last time the Cs were in a game 7 there was a TP Bounty. Glad we do not have one today.
