The Streak is Over

Yes, this guy beat us.

Yes, this guy beat us.

I want to blame the bench for this loss (13 total points, Powe and House combined for 3 pts), but that’s hard to do when the game is tied at 81 with 3 minutes left. Pau Gasol (yes – PAU GASOL) dominated crunch time with 7 points and 1 huge blocked shot.

The Lakers were the more physical team because the referees allowed them to be. Anytime the Celtics amped up their play, their were whistled for some BS foul.

Bynum is a pretty good shot blocker, but offensively he’s not even close to a $57 million player.

  1. tony allen wasn’t all that great either

    kg played well…celts didn’t seem to have any fast breaks all night

  2. makes me wana spend the extra couple bucks to go to the FEB 5th game. and my kobe swallows shirt dosent hurt either

  3. You can tell from the crowds reaction that they know this was their NBA title. Laker fans know it won’t get better than this. They know they can’t win an NBA finals series against the Celtics so they figure they might as well pretend they did so tonight.

  4. Celtics got outplayed, I am not blaming the refs for this loss, I’ll make that clear, however that was a horribly officiated game. How do you get called for an offensive foul going into a guy in the air that is also in the circle?

  5. what happened?!?!!? I thought you guys said this game was over-hyped. that the C’s would win by what? 16? PFFTTTT…. OVER-RATED!!! OVER-RATED!!!

  6. what happened to your 12 days of xmas song? HA!

  7. Yes…the Lakers are over-rated. Good call lakerss!!!

  8. HAHAHA!!! Is big “cry” baby gonna cry again?!

  9. lol i loved the streamers…. arent those reserved for nba championships? not a regular season game….. or maybe as count istvan said…this is as good as its gunna get for them

  10. BOSTON SUCKS BOSTON SUCKS BOSTON SUCKS… MERRY XMAS!!! HOPE YOUR NIGHT ISN’T RUINED FUK FACES!!!!

  11. Hope you cry baby bandwagon fans don’t hop on the laker wagon now! SUCK FACES!!!!!

  12. Hey… the Lakers came out strong and won. Great battle. Lakers won. End of story.

    The Celtics took some really horrible shots. Ray and Eddie each took 3’s from about 4 feet behind the line. Ray made some bad choices tonight.

  13. ok that kinda ruined my christmas.

    but i’ll try to look at the positives:
    -if the bench had a halfway decent game the Cs probably would have won.
    -andrew bynum wouldnt have changed shit in last years finals
    -vujacic and gasol are still dirty greasy douche bags
    -lakers acting like they won something…..please see you in february (and more importantly june…….if u can make it out of the west)

  14. I like how you idiots are trying to make light of your lost. 19-game winning streak OVERRR!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. 1.Teixeira does not sign with the Red Sox
    2.Celtics lose to the Lakers on Christmas
    3.Patriots don’t make the playoffs

    Two of these events have happened, and if the third comes in they will all combine to make it my worst Christmas vacation ever.

    By the way, to that idiot lakers fan, you guys won a game AT HOME. And yet you treat it like you just won the championship.

    I wouldn’t be talking about overrated when that so called legend in the making, Andrew Bynum, made barely any difference in this game besides making a few swats.

  16. Tony allen killed the second unit…turnovers, bad shots, bad drives, bad defense….he does more bad then good and just shows how much poze meant as the 6th man over TA…we need a new scorer off the bench and another long center like mutombo or PJ (i’d rather have PJ)

  17. why would anyone even bother to argue with laker fans

    celts won the finals last year…and are better this year

  18. Hey, what did you guys get for christmas??? Oh yeah…. a lost to the 09′ champs!!!! bye bye winning streak!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I’ll give credit where it’s due. Kobe and Gasol were phenomenal, but I can’t recall a game that had worse officiating and we were due a loss. We weren’t going to go 80-2.

  20. haha the funny thing is that we won 19 games before this game, and will go right back to our winning ways after this game. Lakers won, although it was questionable, but we’ll play again, and maybe on Feb. 5th we will be riding another 19 game win streak. Enjoy it lakers trolls, you know this was an abberation game from all the pain we put you through last year when it really mattered….

  21. haha i cant believe how big of a deal this is to all you laker fans… did you all bet your testicles on the game? or are you just excited you finally beat us in a game?

  22. Great game.

    Celtics are a phenomenal team and honestly, Allen was pissed all game and let it get to his head. How you don’t look to Allen for offense is beyond me.

    And just when I thought Gasol’s “soft” stamp was going to be permanent, he comes out and seals it with a tough and1 play to win it.

    Great game, there is no doubt in my mind this is a Finals preview. Two best teams in basketball (Cle = 18 home wins, sorry, not at Boston’s level). This level of basketball is great…

  23. haha i cant believe how big of a deal this is to all you laker fans… did you all bet your testicles on the game? or are you just excited you finally beat us in a game?
    Nate – December 25, 2008 at 8:07 pm

    Like I said this is their title. They know they won’t win when it counts.

  24. How can you say that your lost was “questionable?” here come the excuses! MERRY XMAS!!!!!!

  25. The Celtics were aggressive, they took the ball to the hoop and shot just 8 free throws? The Lakers got more calls.

  26. Don’t act like this game didn’t mean shit to you guys. What happened to all the beat LA chants? Don’t act like you didn’t want to see your winning streak go on. I know it hurts…. hurts real bad doesn’t it??????? WHOOOOOO I LOVE IT!!! SEE YOU ASSHOLES IN FEB!!!!

  27. I guess vegas was right huh Redsarmy? HAHA!!!

  28. GO LAKERS!!!!!!1

  29. HAHAHAHA WE ARE THE TRUE CHAMPS BITCH!!!!!!!!

  30. When will the little yellow bus take the kids back home?

  31. HAHAHAHA WE ARE THE TRUE CHAMPS BITCH!!!!!!!!
    LD2K – December 25, 2008 at 8:14 pm

    Good Lord.

  32. hahaha by the way i dont think anyone has even mentioned the amazing picture that chuck dug up for this post, is that prince or pau??

  33. The turnover numbers and personal foul numbers are drastically different between the 2 teams. This was mostly to do with the officiating. While the Celts didn’t play stellar they are clearly the better team.

  34. BOOO YAHHHH to you celts fans. There goes your 19 winning streak! It’s nice to see you pretend that this game is nothing to you. Yeah Go on and say anything you want to ease the pain!!! and have a merry christmas!!!!

    see yah in feb!

  35. I thought the officiating level in the NBA was higher than the BS we always see here in Italy… and instead it’s loooooow. That offensive foul on the end of the 3rd quarted called on Rondo was surreal… not to mention all other questionable “home” calls…

    We need to sign someone for the bench, now. That’s what I feared at the begin of the season, Posey averaged little figures, but when it came to keep the other team’s stars from scoring, well that was another thing. We have been shattered by Kobe, we’ll find hard to guard Lebron, and I fear he will rip us off if he’s on a good night, if we don’t add more depth.

  36. and by the way,

    <===================3

    Give this to PP and suck IT!!!

  37. The Celtics definitely lost this game. But I mean, the officiating was absolutely abysmal. I’m not gonna’ blame anything on that, but I really just wanted to point it out.

  38. Los Angeles is populated by people from all over the country pretending to be people they aren’t, sorry you all cant be Ryan Seacrest. So while they are living through there wannabe celebrity life they are Laker fans. There has never been a bigger Faker community then LA. Anyone remember Kobe’s “dropped” charges. The team and community are Fakers.

  39. Streak is over. Bastards
    vida.

  40. So, I wonder how many of these Lakers trolls there actually are, seems like the work of one or two people to me, and it is funny to me that they think they are accomplishing anything.

  41. HAHHAHAHAA

    How did that “16 pt” win feel? HOW DOES UR STREAK FEEL?

    MERRY CHRISTMAS BTCHEZZZ

  42. the difference is you can talk trash all day when you back it up, and we won 19 games in a row to come into this game, we could talk all the trash we wanted. We were and still are the #1 team in the league, and when it REALLY matters, we are better. Dont get me wrong i hated losing this game but it clearly would have absolutely crushed you laker fans if we had won, and it meant much more to the lakers than it does to the Cs. So thats why in perspective we already know full well that we can work your team out, you needed to win to see if you could beat us

  43. Sup dudes, I just want to say that it was a good game by the Celtics, but I believe the Lakers matched their physicality. I also don’t know why you guys are complaining about the Celtics 8 FT’s…it’s not like the Lakers had a whole lot, only 15. Remember that game 2 in Boston? 38 Boston FT’s to the Lakers only 10? Forget it now, it’s in the past. It was an exciting game and both teams played well, but somebody had to lose. Also, it was a big game for the Lakers AND for the fans, sure we don’t win a title with this win, but it is a test to see if we can compete with the best in the league, and also some redemption for that game 6 blow out.

  44. Why can’t everyone just admit that this was a great game? So the Lakers won and the Celts lost, whoopy freaking doo. It’s a game, about midway through the season, that could have gone either way and means absolutely nothing. Everyone was waiting to see what Bynum would do and he had a couple blocks. Just goes to show that this argument won’t be proved until the teams meet in the NBA finals. Get over your egotistical ways and realize these teams will cruise to the finals and battle it out for the ultimate bragging rights. All the season means for these two teams is that they’ll get home court advantage during the playoffs. Just wish June would hurry up and arrive.

  45. Second unit came up short and refs must’ve bet Lakers. I wish Tommy was there because he would’ve been all over the horrible officials.

  46. the bottom line is just we effin HATE YOU so much!!!!

    FU CK YOU BOSTON FANS!!!!

    Winning against you felt like I had ten orgasms with the blonde cheerleader above!!! oh yeah!

  47. Another thing about the bandwagoners… how about all the celebrities we see in a given night at the Staples? Would they stick with the team and attend the games if the Lakers went under .500? I don’t think so. So say what the hell you want about bandwagoning, and keep your “faithful” fans.

    We’ll gladly keep the Cousys, the Russells and the Heinsohns, at least we know they won’t betray us once the team has a bad slump.

  48. One thing that brings this site down is the level of participation and interaction that goes on in the comments. Good grief.

    You have troll-like Lakers fans who curse, cannot spell basic words, and make really ridiculous points (this is the regular season). And on the other side of the fence, you have Celtics fans who insult the people of L.A. (internet tough guy), make excuses (blame the officials, instead of the turnovers or admitting the Lakers played good defense), or generally act like ignorant degenerates.

    It’s a game folks. At the end of the day, that’s what it is.

    “Hey… the Lakers came out strong and won. Great battle. Lakers won. End of story. ” – this is the best comment made. John doesn’t make excuses, because the man has played the game. Trash talk at the beginning, but respect in the end.

    Being from L.A., I’m glad to see the town invigorated by the Lakers, as I was proud to see that massive Celtics logo off of 95 headed to Logan a couple of months back.

    Today’s game was a very good one and it only serves to improve the sport. Good stuff. Until February…

  49. BOOSTON SUCKSSS (BALLS)

    Have fun with your chip cuz while we get 6 more u wont
    FOR 26 YEARS!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS BANDWAGONERS!

  50. and where you guys when you had a bad season prior to your finals win? cheering “MVP” to kobe?

  51. and where were you guys when you had a bad season prior to your finals win? cheering “MVP” to kobe?

  52. It was very clear that the refs were calling it the Lakers’ way every chance they could. If a Laker twitched they called a foul, when there was CLEARLY none given. I counted at least 6 times that the ball was wrongly taken away from the Cs due to the refs and the refs alone.

    This has an effect on how a team plays too… it’s not just those specific plays that are affected, but the whole game.

    My theory: the league decided a “rivalry” was good for business, and that the Celtics had to go down for there be one. I think this was decided in advance, and that this happens regularly in the NBA. That is the one great flaw in this game… there is NO control over the refs, not even a way to complain… if you open your mouth, you get slapped with a fine. I just hope that someday, some ref will step forward and blow the whistle on the league, once and for all…. or sue them in court.

    Why else would the league so steadfastly refuse to allow instant replay on challenges?

    In the long run, the Cs will win… but it’s irritating as hell to watch their hard work be turned to crap by dishonest officials working for a corrupt league.

    Don’t believe it? Ask yourself how it is possible to commit an offensive foul when the contact occurs DIRECTLY UNDER THE BASKET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RESTRICTED AREA? Just one of many ridiculous calls in this game.

    ‘Nuf said. What’s clear is clear.

  53. Gasoal is a piece of shit, Garnett should of punched him in his fucken face. Lamar hits two lucky 3’2, oh well lets start another 19 in a row. I HATE the fucken FAKERS….I wounder how much the lakers paid the fans to cheer….lol

  54. domz, As I stated in another post, I was at the Lakers-C’s game in Jan ’07 when the LAKERS fans at the game were chanting “MVP” for Kobe, one of which got a cup of ice to the face from me. And the Lakers fans didn’t have a very fun ride on the T leaving the Fleet going to Crimebridge…

    So yeah, that is where I was…

  55. This was the worst the C’s have played this year, and they still hung with the 3rd/4th best team in the league until late. Any improvement next time due to familiarity, preparation, playing at home, and/or less biased officiating and the C’s will win. Adding a PJ Brown (or dare I say, Mutumbo) should help too.

    Frustrating game, but fodder for the coaching staff, and motivation for the players.

  56. Why can’t everyone just admit that this was a great game? So the Lakers won and the Celts lost, whoopy freaking doo. It’s a game, about midway through the season, that could have gone either way and means absolutely nothing. Everyone was waiting to see what Bynum would do and he had a couple blocks.

    BEST COMEBACK COMMENT NUMBER 1

    CONGRATS i WILL ACCEPT THE AWARDS ON YOUR BEHALF

  57. I would like to be as “ladida, what a great game, can’t we all get along” as the next guy. But the bias of the refs is there for all to see, on video. Multiple horrible calls, all against the Celtics. Coincidence? Maybe. But I doubt it. Why choose to ignore it? Ignoring it is what allows it to continue. And it happens a lot in the NBA…. something is rotten.

  58. And btw, I live in L.A.

  59. I find it funny, Celtics fans complaining about refs. Game 2 anyone?

  60. poor refs..always catch the blame

  61. Laker fans are proving that thy smell worse than comes out of my butt. But what comes out of my butt has more real substance those those fake America’s Team fans. Doesn’t anything make you more sick than those fake rich Hollywood types at the games. You call US bandwagon? What do you call all those FAKE rich Hollywood types that are there just to be seen. We played lousy and STILL kept it close. What the frig do you think it will be like in OUR house shallow pukes!

    LA is a fake city, fake team, fake boobs, and shallow fans. You will feel our wrath soon FAKERS!!!!!!

  62. Thanks Dre.

    I’ll sit here and take all the heat. I don’t care. That’s part of the deal.

    I can’t fault the refs. They were swallowing the whistle on both ends. Not to sound like the Doc Rivers cliche machine here…. but in the end, the Lakers just made more plays. The biggest thing they did was not let Rondo get to the rim. He didn’t have the same effect in this game as he has in other recent games.

    What can I say? Lakers played great D in this one. They did everything I said they wouldn’t do.

  63. We had to give up a young All-Star for KG. Can you imagine if we did not blow the league like Lakers do and still had Al Jef on our team like the league gave them Gasol. The Laker’s deserve NOTHING that they ever won. Fake Fake Fake Fake league created team.

  64. lets not get into the blame referees mode…. the lakers won the celtics loss….. on to the next game…. until we meet again in boston………

  65. It’s easy to “play great D” when the refs are blowing everything your way. Please. Call after ref call stole the ball from the Celtics. It’s funny though… people just don’t want to believe that something could be amiss. That the refs and the NBA are rotten, and that some games are fixed by the refs. All I can tell you is… go to the video. Some of those calls were UNBELIEVABLE. It’s simply impossible for all of them to have been made innocently.

  66. DRJ…………….Were you saying anything about the refs after Game 2? I don’t think you were. You’re ridiculous

  67. I guess too that a lot o you think it’s the macho thing to do to not make excuses, just tough it out, etc., etc. But ignoring the reality in front of your face is not macho. It’s just stupid. The refs turned the game. No team can fight both their opponent AND the refs. And Rondo isn’t seasoned enough to fully understand that the NBA is rotten and you just have to deal with these days….

  68. the entire city of Boston was chanting “BEAT LA”…so for you jackasses who said this game wasn’t a big deal needs to eat it.

    and what IF the lakers would have lost, you hypocrites would have said “they failed the test”…”we are still the best”…get over it…

    yes it was a just a regular season game, but they don’t put meaningless games on Christmas day for nothing, ya red headed boson freaks!

  69. oh yeah, don’t forget about the 17 TOs Boston had, so don’t even mention the officiating of the foul shots, it was physical game on both sides

  70. DRJ:

    If the Celtics had pulled this one out, Lakers fans would have been screaming the exact same thing. The refs let them both play. I didn’t see any blatantly one-sided officiating.

    Could some calls have been made? Yes. But just like in baseball…. when the umpire’s strike zone is wide… as long as its wide for both sides… then you just deal with it.

  71. why do all these LA trolls spell lose “loose”.

  72. I agree with redsarmy, if the C’s would of won the FAker fans would of said the same thing….we need to cut down our turnovers and we would not have to worry about the refs. I think Tony Allen needs to be smarter with the ball and I think I said this before but I hate it when Big baby takes jumpers. He needs to be in the paint where the other team does not want him, he is a wide body that can put some hurt on ya but now if he’s shooting 14-16 foot jumpers. Good game they needed the win more than the C’s did, it was a home game but when they come to Boston I bet we win my more than 8 or 9 points. ;-) remember game 6 Faker fans???? LOL**************

  73. I guess this site didn”t know how much shit it was talking till now after Lakers won . Just wait till February 5th it’s gonna get even more worse for the Celtics

  74. Great game guys…would have chimed in sooner, but its Christmas…
    How ANYONE could have watched that game and seriously complained about officiating as the main factor for losing is absurd…Refs were a non-factor-when the whistles are NOT blowing is when we see good basketball-and that’s exactly what we saw…
    Redsarmy, I commend you on your fair commentary…clearly these are the two best teams in the sport and the Lakers were the better team today…
    I must say the Bynum in the line-up absolutely made a HUGE difference today…35 minutes, 9 points, 7 rebs and 2 blocks…but most importantly…ask Pau how nice it is to have his big ass on the floor to take some of the pounding…this years finals will be the same two teams…we’ll see about the results…

    Can’t wait for June.

  75. I was gonna gloat but after RedsArmy reasonable defense of the Refs…it goes both ways,

    The Celtics beat the Lakers fair and square, the Lakers won this one fair and square.

    I’ll just say good game Celtic Fans.

    See you in February.

  76. …and Laker fellow Laker fans…to avoid needless ridicule from the Leppers…please spell simple words correctly…

    Lose means to get beaten …
    Loose is what Boston women are…

    …and to all a good night!

    Stay classy Quincy!

  77. and by the way,

    <===================3

    Give this to PP and suck IT!!!
    domz – December 25, 2008 at 8:20 pm

    …But if you give that to Paul …then what’s your mother going to slob all over?

  78. This game was about turnovers ….though offensive and deadball fouls count as turnovers too. I seriously havent seen the refs call more BS in my life. A violation during a jump ball [haha], palming, and D [ick] Fisher ..somehow drew a charge inside the circle with both of his sneakers touching eachother.

    That said ..Gasol and Kobe were good tonight… Kobe normally does his thing but tonight Gasol didnt turn into a pink taco down the stretch. The bench was very costly tonight, but then they havent won the battle of the benches very often either. The C’s are usually up 12-15 when they come in and when they come back the lead is between 6-8 points

  79. One thing to note “outside” the game …going into the game the lakers clearly had something to prove in attempting to knock out the champ ..where is this familiar?

    The C’s last year measuring themselves against Detroit…

    Detroit was playing the C’s 2008-09 season role in just treating it as “another” game …just “1 of 82” ..and while theres a certain focus and big picture view of that. Something has to be said for wanting to stop on the throat of any sub class team that believes themselves to be on your level.

    Anyways, back in Boston with new non mob affiliated refs i think the C’s prevail

  80. Reds army haha red is turning in his grave right now… lets face the facts…boston literally got handed a team … with garnett and allen signings yes you cockksuckers won one title but sold your souls… pierce is nowhere near kobe’s level and Pau will outdo garnett anytime of the day… but be happy we only face eachother twice in the regular season… worry about cavs you pathetic lil sons of a bittches … all you reds army wanna be could suck a fatty

  81. Did NOT like that play run right after one of the last time outs called by the C’s …they might of been down by 5 …but you could tell that Doc called a play for Ray to get a look at a 3 but the Lakers must have been in the huddle because thats where they focused all their energy and rather than going for a 2pt shot somewhere else they forced some non-rhythm 3… and that was it

  82. At first I was like ok they won let them get it out of their system but it’s gotten to a point that it shows that LA fans are not mature enough to handle even a ergular season win, they act like they just won it all…..WTF the celtics would of won this game if it mattered just like they did last year. GET A LIFE ALL YOU GUYS DID IS WIN ONE GAME!!!!! THE CELTICS ARE THE CHAMPS AND THAT ALL THAT COUNTS!!!!

  83. nobody else thinks that the celtics played a horrific game all around

    and they were still in it at the end?

    can you imagine if ray allen was on, and the bench scored at least 20 points in that game?

  84. It’s not the calls that were NOT made that was the problem. It was the calls that WERE made:
    – Rondo drives baseline, gets called for an offensive foul when the contact was in the middle of the restricted area
    – Tony Allen gets called for an offensive foul after crashing into the defender WHOSE FOOT WAS ON THE LINE of the restricted area, clearly
    – Ray Allen gets called for an offensive foul because Vujacic pretends to have been hit and does a mini-flop. No contact, just a mini-flop… and an immediate whistle.
    – Perksins gets called for offensive fouls that were nothing but normal contact.
    …And on and on… I can give you exact times if you like,
    – There were NO calls of that nature against the Lakers. NOT ONE.
    – This is not a shrug-your-shoulders let’s-move-on thing. This game was stolen by the refs, and this is very clear in the video, which I have reviewed.

    Of course the Lakers played well. But they would still probably have lost had the Cs had a fair shot.

    And I repeat: I live in L.A. This has nothing to do with which team we root for. It was just a blatant theft, which pisses me off…. Maybe I am pissed off most at myself for watching this crap.

  85. Amazing how people can convince themselves to ignore the evidence of their OWN EYES. You have to be delusional or psychotic to think this game was “well-officiated”. Not in this universe, pal.

  86. I don’t know why everyone is bitchin about this game. Celtics fans should admit they lost and their were questionable calls both ways. But it was at L.A. and the home team is always going to have the advantage. I thought both teams could’ve played better but as a lakers fan i can honestly say that if this was in boston they probly wouldve won. They would win because of the refs would give them b.s. calls. So as far as i am concerned these teams are as good as equal but a lot will change come june.

  87. WHAT WAS THE CROWD CHEERING?

  88. I’d volunteer to moderate these comments…

  89. Hahaha. You celtics fans are all talk. You talk trash before the game, but what happened. You guys find excuses for your celtics to lose this game. “boo hooo officiating was awful” Puhhhhhhhhhleeeeeeeease I’ve seeen WAAAAY motherfucking worse officiating than that bullshit. The only reason why you guys HAD a 19 game win streak was because ya’ll played weak eastern conference teams. It’s funny how before this game, Celtics hadn’t lost in like 3 weeks? But cleveland cavaliers are not too behind from yall. HAHAHAHA

    &c’mon. Jordan farmar, Sasha Vujacic, Trevor Ariza, Lamar Odom > Leon Powe, Eddie house, Glen crybaby Davis, Tony Allen.

    AND to top it all off even tho it doesnt matter yall got the two ugliest players. Sam cassell and Brian Scalabrine LMFAO

  90. and by the way,

    <===================3

    Give this to PP and suck IT!!!

    that is one sharp penis…

  91. ****** GROW UP “LAKER>CELTICS>>>>>>
    You such a piece of shit!! I’ll bet any of you scum bags that the celtics beat the FAKERS by mre than 15 when they play in Boston!! And since they are goiing to have the BEST record in the NBA it does not matter if the FAKERS win at hom we will still be the champs again for the second year in a row!!!!

    FUCK YOU FAKER FANS!!!!

  92. do celtics fans bother lakers fans this much on their sites? this is rediculous haha you fakers surface whenever you see a sign of superiority and then vanish back into the depths for the rest of the season while we dominate… i agree with redsarmy… trolls is a perfect description

  93. Lakers sites have their fair share of trolls from just about everywhere.

  94. The Lakers got a hard earned win. They deserved to win that game. I find it funny that the Celtics fans complain about the officiating in that game when the Lakers only got 7 more ft’s than the Celtics (but won by 9), and they don’t think there is anything wrong with 38-10 ft advantage in the finals (they only won by around 6). And you can’t complain about the reffing ruining your streak because you wouldn’t have the streak if the refs didn’t win the Celtics the games against the Hawks (both times), Hornets, Jazz, Pacers (in Indiana), and Bucks.

  95. I love all of these Celtic excuses. Makes XMAS even better.

  96. Good game. I thought Boston played hard toda and earned their 16-point vict.. oh wait. Just kidding. Lakers 09 Champs!

  97. And also, the charge when Derek Fisher was in the key was a terrible call, but its ONE call and the Celtics shouldn’t complain! 38-10! 38-10! 38-10! Whats your excuse for that?

  98. The officiating was fair. Don’t get mad just because the reffs didn’t bail you out this time, after all Pierce DOES exaggerate contact. Dude needs to be carried off on a wheelchair every time they tap him on the arm.

    Celtics still got the best record in the league…but The Cavs and Lakers aren’t far behind.

  99. Even the “great” magic johnson said that the celtics are still the better team than the lakers, so shut up and go back in your holes for 9 more weeks til we meet again because we are going to be rampaging the league and are going to stomp your throats in on Feb 5th. this whole thing is working to the celtics favor, you made the sleeping giant mad, now you are going to see what a motivated celtic team looks like next time we meet, my god you guys are going to be killed. THis game was meaningless to this team, you know how many teams hate the celtics and want to beat them? EVERYONE, you guys don’t know what thats like, your not the champs. This is a rivalry for you guys just like the hawks is a rivalry for atlanta, this isnt a rivalry to us, your all the same. bunch of weak asses that cant really hang with us when it matters. hahaha i love it

  100. …But if you give that to Paul …then what’s your mother going to slob all over?
    Rj – December 25, 2008 at 11:26 pm

    I did not say that was mine you piece of sh it.

  101. “this isn’t a rivalry to us”

    You’ve been reading a lot of sports news haven’t you.

  102. Laker fans and the Celtic fans both have been waiting for this game since the season started, so please stop acting as if you don’t care. You can say “Lakers think they just won a championship” and things like that, but what you don’t seem to understand is the Lakers just want revenge in the two regular season games because Boston WILL NOT be in NBA Finals. Cleveland took Boston to seven games in last season’s playoffs and are much improved this time around!!!
    LAKERS vs CAVS 2009 NBA Finals
    But don’t worry Celtic fans, you can still watch the Lakers beat the team you could’nt beat in the eastern conference! Hope that helps the pain….lol

  103. EAT SHIT CELTICS FANS!!!!!!!!!

  104. Aingelives Kobe’s no Jordan. Lakers will not make it back to Finals sorry so it really does not matter.

  105. …and Laker fellow Laker fans…to avoid needless ridicule from the Leppers…please spell simple words correctly…

    Lose means to get beaten …
    Loose is what Boston women are…

    …and to all a good night!

    Stay classy Quincy!
