I watched part of the last Celtics game, when they got blown out by the Bulls. They'll be as hungry for a win as we are, so this'll be interesting.

While it's a back-to-back for us, we got blown out so outrageously we should be fairly well-rested for this match. Warriors by 5.

Back to back against a team that matches pretty well against us (except the pg position). I don't like this game...

At least we don't have Doc Rivers as our head coach...

Still, Davis and Pierce will feast on us.

Celtics +10

(Maybe this negativity comes from the last outing against the nets, but I'm pretty sure there's no way in hell we win this game)

Warriors by 5.

I hope we can pull this one off. TMC makes a fine point about the negativity though. I almost wanted to say that about the Nets...but tried to give the benefit of the doubt. We'll see what happens...

HAHA now that's having some confidence in your team!!!!

I don't know if the Celts have quite the firepower just yet like the Nets do. If the Warriors lose this game, they could be back to their losing ways, with or without Baron

The only thing holding them back is that they don't have a decent coach. Both Davis and Pierce are playing at all star level, they have a good center (though foul prone and not very polished offensively) in Perkins, a stud that Rivers doesn't play in Al Jefferson and a good bench. Only lack a real pg (West is a good project, but still learning).

I like that team, but, with Doc Rivers, reaching the payoffs is the highest they can get.

Change my prediction slightly...

After the biggest blowout losses of the season for both teams, both teams will be hungry for a win.

It'll be down to the wire, IMO. My prediction is:

Golden State 95
Boston 93

Celtics raping us in the paint and on the glass. Also, Dun has scored more points for the Celtics than the Warriors.

Blah.

I have no further comments. >_< That was painful to watch, even more than last night for me.

This was a very, very winnable game. What happened?

We have lost what, the last 5 of 7 now?

There is serious issues now! The team has to think about what is going on and talk to eachother about what needs to be done. Both the Nets and Celts are teams that a very good team should beat. Hope this is not the start of a long losing streak.

Just join the crew Hobbes - Dun and Foyle are wanted out!
