Brutal

The Celtics may have lost Game 3, but I remain supremely confident they will win this series. In fact, my confidence level is higher now than it was prior to this game. Why? Because Paul Pierce (6 pts, 2-14 FG,)  just played the worst game of his career and the Lakers barely won. Kevin Garnett (13 pts, 6-21 FG) was pretty damn bad too. I’ll give the Lakers some credit, they were more aggressive offensively and defensively. Kobe Bryant (36 pts) was superb, and that greasy douchebag Sasha Vujacic (20 pts) nailed several big shots. But there is no way in hell, the Lakers are good enough to win this series.

Box Score | Recap

Rajon Rondo suffered a mild ankle sprain in the 3rd quarter. He had decent mobility, but Doc stuck with Eddie House for most of the second half.

  1. Badguys win. Is Odom a walking corpse out there? The guy is worthless. Pierce will go off next game typical let down game in NBA its par for the course. Take 1 in LA and win it at home I can live with that. Boston showed alot of class by not crying after every play Lakers did not.

  2. Well, it was somewhat certain Kobe would be his usual self at some point. Tonight happened to be the night. Who would’ve thought Pierce and KG would forget how to shoot the basketball, though.

    As much as I hate to say it, I think KG should stop taking those long, flat laser 18-20 ft. shots. Those have been killing us. He needs to pound it in on Gasol and do those turn around hooks.

  3. Didn’t it occur to you that the Lakers won with Gasol playing like crap and Odom in foul trouble throughout the game? but inspite of all of these factors, Lakers got the W and isn’t that the most important thing? winning’s winning. you celtics fans know that from your “barely won” game 2 victory. idiot.

  4. I had no problem with the officiating tonight..but did anyone notice ABC refused to show any replays of any celtics foul/turnover or lakers non call

    i remember several specific times wanting to see a replay of what happened…and getting nothing

  5. Yep, we can take that loss. I like KG staying in the post, Pierce should have a bounce back game. I see Perk and Rondo as miss-matches now too. I like our chances in game 4.

  6. it kind of goes without saying but the lakers needed this game more and the play showed, i think we need to feed off KG’s energy every game and when he comes out flat we do too, that stretch in the 3rd when we took the lead is because KG was attacking and being aggressive on both ends, hopefully he brings that game 4 and pierce stays outta foul trouble so he can get rhythm to his game

  7. looks like Kobe smack the world back in reality and showed he is better then pierce. Lakers tied this up 2-2 and game 5 is a coin toss

  8. i wonder who said this “Yeah… where’s that Kobe when it counts?” hmm seems like he went off you guys today since we needed the Win but it’s only one win I am not thrilled yet. Lakers now must look forward to game 4 and please can somebody tell Gasol and Odom to get their head’s out of there ass and play some Lakers Basketball

  9. there was no doubt in my mind that the celtics were gonna lose this game, i didnt want to believe it but there was no doubt, no way the nba would let the lakers go down 3-0 and ruin their picture perfect nba finals

    now while the media will tell you that the lakers were just more aggressive than the celtics tonight-not totally true-the truth is the kobe was gonna get to the foul line tonight around 20 times if he just showed up to the game let alone drive to the paint

    side note pierce was getting mauled when he drove in to the lane, didnt get any calls, its allright i didnt expect them

    overall i thought it was a good (and inevitable) loss for the c’s

    and i liked seeing eddie get some playing time

  10. you got to be kidding me papa irish same shit was happening to Lakers in game 2 and now I hear Celtics fan complaining about foul calls please just shut up Celtics deserved to lose this game period

  11. Isn’t it nice that we all can say good game, we lost tonight, try harder next game. They won at home, like they are suppose to do. Let’s try to steal one and take it home to Boston.

    NO whining or excuses.

  12. I agree. take the loss like a man. suck it up and stop giving excuses.

  13. Pierce>Kobe ?

    LMAO

  14. All the makings of a blowout in game 4

  15. I agree u stink… I also see the Celtics blowing them out in Game 4.

  16. the writers in this site are all idiots.

  17. I HATE L.A !!!!!! PHILL JACKSON IS A F-IN BABY!! WHY CAN’T HIS CRIPPLED ASS SITE IN A REGULAR CHAIR……F-LOSERS, KOBY IS ALSO A F-IN BABY THINKING HE SHOULD GET EVERY CALL. THE CELTICS DID NOT QUESTION A SINGLE CALL. F ALL YOU LAKER FANS AROUND THE WORLD!!! GO CELTICS WE WILL WIN GAME 4 AND MAKE ALL YOU F-IN FANS CRY. GOOD LUCK CELTICS.

  18. Holy shit! Kobe just shitted all over the celtics! haha.

  19. WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING “KOBE JUST SHIT ON THE C’S” ALL HE DOES IS CRY CRY AND CRY!!! HE IS THE BIGGEST PUSSY, NO WONDER WHY SHAQ DID NOT WANT TO PLAY WITH THAT PUSSY. HE HAS NOBODY ON THE TEAM THAT COULD PLAY ANYWHERE ELSE SO HE THINKS HE COULD ACT LIKE AN ASS HOLE TO THOSE GUYS AND THEY HAVE NO CHOICE TO COME BACK AND TAKE HIS SHIT AGAIN NEXT YEAR. I JUST HAVE ONE THING TO TELL KOBE, YOUR A PUSSSSYY!!!!

  20. oh, that pussy just murdered your celtics. knocked down crucial shots and made ray allen look like a fucking 5 year old. hahaha. dribbles to the left, crosses to the right, pump fakes, and knocks down the jumper. shit, ray allen looked more like the pussy to me. hahaha. GO LAKERS!

  21. Kobe needs to fix his attitude. Always complaining on every play especially when they’re behind. Gets mad at his teammates when they’re down then congratulates them pathetically when they’re ahead. To think that I thought this year he has matured. Can’t wait to see Kobe rant all offseason at his teammates after Celtics win the championship.

  22. “…greasy douchebag…”

    …scraping the bottom of the barrel for a epithet after a loss, Chuck? You’re better than that.

    “Greasy” is a negative term used to describe a lot of immigrants – I’d be careful of its use.

    And please, anyone commenting should refrain from typing in all caps. Please.

  23. I didn’t know Dre was some politically correct wannabe. You’re taking a page out of Al Sharpton’s book by inferring my comment is an ethnic slur. The dude looks greasy. I don’t care where he’s from.

  24. its pretty funny how reds think game 4 will be a blowout lol

  25. Classy article Chuckles…full of emotion, racism and blind fury…there’s the boy from Lakewood I have so much respect for…nice to see you back…

    Go Lakers…we win Game 4 this series is ours…good luck.

  26. Ok… We win game 4 this series is ours… good luck.

    Honestly the C’s had no right winning that game especially when you consider us missing those free throws, shooting 35% from the field and not having enough assists. And our defense was not up to par the closing possessions. Where was help for Ray-Ray?

    Phil finally does something right by swapping Kobe to Rondo forcing a cross match.

    Congrats LA and welcome to the 2008 NBA Finals. Just don’t make any parade plans….

  27. Well if you had to lose one it would be game 3. Kobe’s back was against the wall and he went after the rim like a hotel employee. Pierce shot like sh*t all night and the lakers never could pull away at home. I thought the C’s showed great heart, no worries going into game 4 unless of course you a female hotel employee.

  28. That is so old man…ask Bird how his daughter is…wanna talk character? Jojo/Len/Reggie doin’ coke lately…Pierce gang bangin’? The Cheif still smokin’ doobies? McHale still hangin’ out with Catholic preists? Rondo droppin’ soap?

  29. You’re taking a page out of Al Sharpton’s book by inferring my comment is an ethnic slur.
    ——
    I said it could be interpreted as such and to be careful of how you use the word.

    Probably the best approach is not to engage in name calling at all… that was the moral of story.

    is “hypocrite” name calling or just the correct term?
