Seriously, Philly Sucks

Without 2 of the Big 3, the Celtics played like crap for most of this game but still managed to squeak out a win in Philly.

Even though he coughed up the ball with :30 left and gave the Sixers life, Paul Pierce (31 pts, 12-16 FG, 7-9 3FG) was deadly accurate tonight. Doc wanted Pierce to sit this one out, but the Truth begged in and delivered.

In his first game back since the knee injury, Leon logged 16 minutes and scored 10 points with 4 reb. He seemed aggressive and I think he’ll be fine come playoff time.

TA scored 18 pts in his 38 minutes. He was very aggressive, slashing  and driving to the hoop.

The only way Philly won’t finish with 7th seed is if the Bulls lose to Toronto tomorrow AND Philly beats Cleveland.

Box Score

Here’s a couple 76ers dancer team pics I snagged off the web….if you are into this sorta thing.

  1. I agree..The one thing that has been constant in this year of injuries though, is The Truth. God bless him. Thanks again for putting the team on your shoulders and carrying it to victory. Baby’s shooting touch keeps getting better too…

  2. Well ain’t that the Truth.

    VERY encouraging game from Tony Allen.

  3. The “Truth’s” scudding at teammates was key for the second half turnaround

    How many Tech’s does Perk has now? Hope it’s not close to 17 or else he might get suspended for a game if he gets couple more.

  4. 66 wins last year 61 maybe 62 this year, not bad considering all the injuries we encountered this year. Just think if KG played half the games that we was out, we might of won 70 games this year.

  5. 61 wins is exactly what I predicted at the start of the season, for whatever that’s worth…..

  6. [...] – Sixers Celtics 17 Who’s afraid of the big bad Cavs? Red’s Army Encouraging signs Seriously, Philly sucks Celtics Circuit What we learned last night against the Sixers Metro Cs legends speak:¬† Pierce one [...]

  7. Shady, please, theres no way we win 70 games if KG never gets hurt
    We didnt even have the best record in the league when he went down, and we should be thankful for the other guys who carried us in his abscene

    We lost 14 games with KG, and 6 without him…People forget we were lost 5 of 7 with KG completly healthy against really bad teams..and also it took us more games then any team ever to win the title…with KG.
    We arent unbeatable or guaranteed to repeat with KG healthy…he was having his worst season of his career guys

  8. Ok but if I’m not mistaken KG has been of for 24 games, your telling me that if he did play we could not of won half those games? Even if KG was not having his best season I still think we could of had a better season than last.

  9. yes, 70 wins is unrealistic, it wouldnt have happened.

    And no, we potentially dont even get more wins with KG never injured (although we probably do get at least 2 or 3 more)
    when KG got injured, the rest of the guys stepped up there games and guys like BBD and Powe started playing there best basketball of there careers….that doesnt happen with KG playing his full minutes, and who knows, maybe KG wouldve been off those games Leon and BBD filled in and played superb.

    For example : WitH KG it took a paul pierce last second buzzer beater to beat a josh smithless hawks team, and then we barely beat them in atlanta.

    when KG was out and we played atlanta we easily beat them by double digits both times with BBD starting.
    Theres something about Garnett, where not only does he make his teammates better, he sometimes make the opposition play harder and want it more as well (especially those hawks)

    I say we win 3 more games if KG never gets injured ( Clippers, bucks, bulls)
