This could be a really good game. But I am banking on a win. 4 of their guys are not going to be resting, they are going to be at the all star activities, and most of our guys will be rested and ready to play. I think Boston is older and comes out flat.

I like the Warriors chances, but if it comes down the refs in this game, we lose.

The Celtics almost always win the FT battle because they know how to yell and flail and get the refs attention. Pierce does this almost constantly.

If we lose because Pierce was a bitch and shoots 10+ FT's I will be royally pissed.

AGREE. Also, given the fact that we are always on the wrong end of the FT discrepancy, it could be a significant stat.

I remember reading a quote from Larry Bird's autobiography that Oakland was a strange place for him to play & he rarely had great games there. Maybe some of the mystique remains...

Celtics play great def and they executes their plays it going to hard for warriors to get a win. It will be a test for warriors def to stop their team play.

6 wins in a row against this team at home isn't too bad...especially since we have a better team now than a few of the previous times we've played them at home.

I think that in this game it's getting pretty obvious that Lee just can't finish up inside...so, that's our missing part. he gets his points, but nor from below the basket. We need that big guy, that could either score, or help make some more room for Lee.

Terrible defense so far. All of the shoots Celtics take, they have players wide open.

That was a great finish the Warriors had in the 1st quarter. Just to keep it up.
