What can you say? This was a great game. No, I’m not going to call out the refs for calling all sorts of ticky-tack BS fouls – like the one KG fouled out on in the 4th quarter. Or for not calling a foul on Derek Fisher on the final shot.
Well, then, I will. The refs were letting the Friggin Lakers hack us all night, and calling little piddly shit-fouls on us. That is complete BS. Shouldn’t happen to us at home.
The only question that really stands out to me is why on gods green Earth was Glen Davis doing shooting multiple jumpers late in the game?? His teammates were seriously looking for him…. Sometimes your open for a reason, I would have rather seen PP shooting contested fallaway jumpers than all those shots from BBD
for not calling out the refs you sure…called out the refs. i could tell kg was under the weather, big baby played great, paul played great d on kobe but gasol beat the cs again. ouch.
But but but… KG fouled out…
I don’t want to hear it. This was a HUGE win. See you in June. Get there, we want you. Lakers proved toughness…
The lineup was confusing me as well, Eddie House was on fire, as well as Powe, but you go with that sort of lineup in the 4th and OT? Sometimes I really don’t get what Doc is doing. Pierce and Ray were the only scoring threats so the Lakers defended us accordingly. Clog up those two players and let BBD shoot jumpers……. UGHHH
CUE THE EXCUSES NOW LMAO
the toughest thing i saw from the lakers tonight was at the end of the game when sasha and pau were kissing and hugging…
this coming from a un biased basketball fan… grow the fuck up… that was a great game, maybe if KG wasn’t such a punk the refs wouldn’t watch him as closely
are you seriously finding excuses for this game? celtics like top play like, maybe you should pay attention more, lakers matched the intensity and swept the series, especially how the celtics like to use illegal screens.
for sake give the lakers the props they deserve,a hard battled game in a tough environment.
Honestly I think you guys deserved to win tonight. Between how many free throws we missed, our horrible rebounding, and a bunch of other things, I think Celtics should have gotten it. Good game, keep your heads up.
WOW WHAT THE FUCK, Derek fisher is the only player in the NBA that’s last seconds defense includes hacking the ballhandler, taking their wallet and car keys, and then completely mauling every part of the rest of the player, BRENT BARRY AGREES WITH ME ON THAT WON: SEE PLAYOFFS LAST YEAR
the refs completely gave that one to LA, KG got mauled right before he fouled out, pierce got mauled when they were up one in overtime, Big baby got run over by Pau to a complete no call the series before they cauled the same thing on big baby after he had his shot blocked
TOTAL BULLSHIT GAME
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE REFEREES GIVING HOME COURT ADVANTAGE, thats kinda the nba’s thing- the home team has a significant advantage in gettting calls, instead the road team consistently got the benefit of the doubt
HATED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS GAME
HATE HATE HATE
HATED THE REFS
HATED OUR PLAYS
HATED DOC’S LINEUPS AND ESPECIALLY HIS CALLS
… and I hated it all before we lost. Terrible friggin game. And EXTREMELY TERRIBLE refereeing. How the hell are we gonna win a championship if the refs are this bad for us in every damn game?
Seriously great game guys but no foul on ray allen there he was barely touch he was just off balance
I’m not even that annoyed with the refs, I’m more annoyed with our play down the stretch, the play calling, and the sloppyness. God that was tough to watch
Big Laker fan here… Absolutely the game of the year. As for the refs, they were consistent both ways. They bailed out Pierce for a couple freebies too. Please please please make the finals. Beat Lebron and let’s do it again!
Big respect for the crowd tonight, absolutely electric all game long. See you in June!
Celtics lost, no excuses. I just hate the god damn Laker fans that think they won the super bowl
let the excuses begin…
Fisher hooked Ray’s arm, but I don’t blame the refs for not seeing it. Great veteran play totally took Ray out. I don’t want to bitch about anything game-related, but since I’m mildly annoyed I’ll make two valid points.
1. Sasha Vujacic is the most punchable athlete today, and it isn’t close. I would give everything I own to punch him in the face and then watch him cry about it.
2. Pau Gasol looks to be three seconds away from crying at all times. Every player gets upset about calls every once in a while, but Gasol acts like the world’s ending. I admire and scoff at that simultaneously.
Yeah, Tunez, you sound REALLLLLL un-biased, with that KG comment.
Celtics lost, no excuses. I just hate the god damn Laker fans that think they won the super bowl
and on that quote i thank you and respect you for that, first celtic fan to have said that.was a huge game for the lakers, shows they can beat the celtics at their home.
Shut your goddamn mouth you piece of shit
Why should we cut the excuses. Laker and their fans are famous for using them. We’ll See you in June when hopefully everone on both side are 100%.
a couple days ago it was “Cue The Lakers Excuses”, today its being sarcastic, tsk tsk tsk, lol
I don’t want to hear anymore about the Bynum excuse. It was lame when the Lakers used it last year.
i dont want to hear from you anymore nora, my dicks in your mouth, get busy and suck it
Sako you are a disgusting troll. You are pathetic.
Kiss the Ring. Lakers get nothing for a reg. season win. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Nora’s the Celtics spokeswoman nobody ever asked for.
kiss Kobe’s 3 rings, once youre done, he has something else you can kiss
the thing that sucks is that our star players foul out all the time and guys like kobe and never foul out
celtic fans dont even say kiss the 17 ships, because those were won by a whole different team in a different era
did Nora really just say kiss the rings? i am a respectful fan but come on Nora
How about nobody makes any tired “kiss the rings” arguments. Whatever gets you through the night, I guess.
OMG THE REFS WERE HORRIBLE.
Looks like Powe is back!!!
dont say this was a only regualr season game as Doug Collins said celts need this to get a tie breaker so yea no exucses
and for those who are saying ray allen was fouled think again
(1) Nora right. Kiss the ring.
(2) Webmaster — please block Sako. He’s beyond the pale.
The playing field was more then leveled when KG was kicked out on what was a pretty bogus call.
again with the excuses, smh
Shut the fuck up sako go suck Vagi-itch’s hairy european cooter
The game was called badly both ways. KG’s foul on Fisher was obvious. At the end of the game Ray Allen slipped on the floor, he was never touched. Here’s the link to prove it: http://i40.tinypic.com/2cp3nrt.gif
That was #1 game of the year and I don’t think any other game will top it, so expect to see it #1 on the NBA’s Top 10 Game of the Year at the end of the season.
Good one numb nuts…The Celtics lost, yes we know. Fair and square, the Lakers are better so far this year. Get the fuck out of here and go back to Laker land where your scrawny little bitch ass belongs.
scrawny little bitch huh? come here, lets see if my dick can fit in your mouth
Geez, this site is unreadable again… THANKS LA IDIOTS. I hate this f’kin loss for this too.
Whats up with you and dicks? Seem to like them an awful lot…kinda like the long haired bitch on your team
Reds if you don’t I WILL the refs suck ass!!! That was BS I lost my voice and the cops were called to my place I was yelling so loud!! Come on wtf we had that game, they were all over Paul and Ray but calls were not made. UGHHHH what the F…….
Well Kobe hasn’t won shit with the squad he has, so take those rings away.
Its ok shady this game matters very little.
I’m a Laker fan and don’t post often, but visit the site frequently. I appreciate the passion of the Celtic fans and this rivalry. Don’t misunderstand me: I HATE the Celtics. But, I want everyone to know, Sako does not represent 99% of Laker fans. GREAT game tonight. I really hope to see you guys in June.
chief3233, you can give it a rest too. Go Lakers.
i could not agree more with the comment above me. judge sako, but not Laker fans as a whole
i really didnt mean act like troll. honest. just saying that a couple days ago, you had an article saying “Cue the Lakers Excuses”, not tryin to say you’re being sarcastic. not trying to say you guys are hypocrites. and im not trying to say you guys make excuses. but you know what im saying. ;)
but i apologize for trolling, i dont want to drop myself down to that level.
Powe’s a beast. I forgot what he brings to the table. Overall great game. Go Lakers. See ya in June !
Powe’s a beast. I underestimated his game, and forgot what he brings to the table. Overall great game, and see you in June ! *
Thanks for the apology Sako. But, you are right on the “Cue the Lakers Excuses” article as well as the “celtics are easy money” article.
CELTS FANS, BE GRATEFUL! If Bynum was in the lineup, the game would’ve been over at the end of the 3rd. You wouldn’t have had all those easy layups by little squirts like Rondo.
It’s good Bynum’s out. It’ll make this season exciting, instead of a total Laker cakewalk to numero uno. Bynum’s absence got you a fluke title last year, but LA’s much improved even w/o him. So you’ll get smoked by LA this year (if you get past Cleveland) in what could be a tough finals. But next year and the year after that, THE LAKERS WILL COMPLETE A 3-PEAT WITH EASE!!!
QUOTE FROM TOP OF THREAD: “No, I’m not going to call out the refs for calling all sorts of ticky-tack BS fouls – like the one KG fouled out on in the 4th quarter. Or for not calling a foul on Derek Fisher on the final shot.”
But you just did, thereby making cheesy excuses for the fact that your C’s got smoked AT HOME, by a CENTERLESS Laker squad. You’d better pray Bynum stays hurt, which will at least give you half a chance.
Taking 45 minute flights around the northeast to beat up on weak eastern teams is really cute, but any good win streak is in danger of running into a purple & gold wall!
Please C’s Fans. No excuses. Just give the Lakers the props they deserve. Lakers are better than the Celtics this season, ’nuff said. Let’s just wait and see if it’s still that way this June (if your team even makes it past Cleveland). But yeah, like a fellow Laker-fan said posted earlier, we want you come this June.
This game was clearly not played on an even playing field we didnt have scal for this game
Just got home. What a night, what a game. I feel nauseous. Myself and alot of fans in Section 13 left it all out there on the Garden floor too. Well, as Doc would say, let’s regroup and prepare for the Knicks. Goodnite Redsarmy world…
Great game played by both sides. I thought the lakers would lose this game by the amount of free throws they missed. Its nice to see boston fans actually admit their loss (minus Nora). The arguments and trash talking on the court during the game definatly raised the intensity of it. Hopefully both squads make the finals again this year, if not a Cleveland/LA showdown would be almost as good. Nothin like boston/LA though..
The thing is that the Fakers do not have any team thats going to challenge them in the west, people keep saying that the west is tougher than the east but three of the four best teams are in the east. The Celtics have to go through Cleveland and Orlando who does the Fakers have to go through, the ailing Spurs or the Mavs or wait the Suns…..lol. If this was a playoff game we would not of lost. PP was man handled along with the rest of the team!!! MESSAGE TO ASS HOLE STERN IF YOUR GOING TO LET THEM PLAY LET IT GO BOTH WAYS YOU FUCK!!!!
1) It’s written as Laker my friend.
2) The Hornets are a good young team. The Spurs have good playoff experience. Mavs and Suns are done for.
3) After 10 years and one 48-win team not making the Playoffs, im fine with the East getting some more competition.
Props to the Lakers, they were weak last yr in the playoffs, Pau has toughened up and they’re a stronger team as a result. If they hadn’t missed a shitload of freebies it woulda been an easier win, great to follow on the radio!!
C’s, also couldn’t understand the BBD jumpers FFS!!!! Get House in the game for some decent burn at the end!!!!!
im a lakers fan and i just wanted to say good game to you guys..hope to see u in june
See you in June.We may have lost the season series but there no way way we could lose in 7.GO CELTICS!!!!!!!
Ouch great game sucks we lost.
Just a quick note to Sako: The fact that you admit you’re an asshole doesn’t make you less of an asshole. Go away.
SAKO, you gotta be kiddin me saying the Hornets are a good young team, ya with CP3 but with out him they will not and can not win a game. So that leaves us with the senior citizen Spurs…I don’t think I have to comment on them. When you get your IQ back to a respectable level well talk.
I think alot of stock is being put into this game, when there shouldnt be, Pau Gasol has been a great player for years, hes not any better or tougher, as matter of fact he backed down KG and dunked on him in the finals, noone remembers it because the celtics won the series and lakers fans will blame anyone other than kobe..so he was the target for most of the criticizm, and looking like a goat/ostrich/disgusting creature doesnt help with boston fans…it was a tough game to lose, but its better now than Last June or even this upcoming June if both teams get through their respective conferences…did LA fans deserve any props for the win? fuck no. and the bullshit bynum excuse is sickening..ITS NOT OUR FAULT OR PROBLEM THE KID IS HURT, SO SHUT THE FUCK UP. I actually think the lakers were better off without him tonight, Gasol had a huge night and was kinda getting caught deffering to Bynum before
@ssshady35-Chris Paul is a good young player, and ok admit, i thought they actually did have more young players, i forgot how old David West was. and the Spurs, despite being sponsored by the AARP, know how to get it down in the post-season. and my IQ is actually 130+, ok.
better without bynum?
we had no inside presence! leon powe and big baby got easy putbacks all night and you don’t think a 7-foot 300 pounder who clogs up the lane wouldn’t have been that much of a difference?
and btw, your players are whiners. we (lakers) got our asses handed to us in a 6 game series and we made no excuses: we had no inside presence, we weren’t tough enough, and you guys wanted it more.
you guys lose TWO regular season games and mock us saying that we were taking it too seriously? come on. classless. and btw there was no foul on that last play (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKN67X_Dw-w) clear view side view of the final play, where was the “push” as allen goes up fish and pau are already a good foot away from him.
Quoted from LA Times:
” . . . here are some reasons why the Lakers’ . . . win in Boston was the transcendent team accomplishment to this point in the NBA regular season. Call it the Magnificent 7:
1) The Lakers weren’t intimidated . . .
2) They won despite an exhausted Kobe settling for jumpers, obviously playing with dead legs, the 61 in New York and 36 in Toronto having visibly drained him.
3) They won despite bricking 12 free throws. Make half of those, they win in regulation.
4) They won without Andrew Bynum, whose presence and size would definitely help counter the Celtics’ physicality and take away some of their easy hoops around the rim.
5) They did it in Boston.
6) More impressively, they did it against a Celtics team that was loaded for bear, having lost to the Lakers at Staples on Christmas Day. The defending champions actually gave KG a DNP (did not play) on Tuesday when he was healthy and recovered from the flu, just so he could be even more rested and ready for L.A.
7) More impressively, the Lakers did it playing on consecutive nights, near the end of a long Eastern swing, when West Coast teams tend to tire and peter out.””
“The Fakers?” Seriously? The “Losers” take-off on the Lakers logo? Really.
Can someone please explain what makes the Lakers “fake?” If you think LA is fake, keep in mind that the phoniest people here are east coast transplants looking for attention and money in the entertainment biz. But what do they have to do with the men in purple & gold uniforms?
Can someone please explain what makes the Lakers “Losers?” The Los Angeles Lakers possess THE highest historic winning percentage in all of sports. “Losers?” Honestly?
good gaaaame celts!!! even though i almost had a heart attack. foul or no foul, bad calls or good calls, a win’s a win baby!!! please beat the cavs. we want you in june.
Such hate. Kudos to the C’s fans who haven’t fallen to that.
I’m amazed that rather than just have a bit of class and say “good game” and move on, there has to be an absolutely deplorable display of *fandom*. Classless.
“Sasha Vujacic is the most punchable athlete today, and it isn’t close. I would give everything I own to punch him in the face and then watch him cry about it.”
Two things champ:
1. Sasha’d probably beat you senseless. I mean… c’mon.
2. That title probably belongs to KG. No spite there at all. Simply true. Tho’ must admit he made some MAJOR brownie points with the Monty Python parody. Fantastic stuff…
A parody, of a parody. Nice.
I really enjoyed the game, and thanks to John for heading over and giving the interview beforehand.
Looking forward to the Finals guys!
HEY PURPLW DUDE I THINK YOUR CHOKING ON KOBES DICK, YOU DUMB ASS STOP ASKING RETARDED QUESTIONS!! “THE FAKERS HAVE THE HIGHEST WINNING % IN ALL OF SPORTS” BUT THE CELTICS HAVE MORE RINGS THAN THE FAKERS.
IT’S A FASHION STATEMENT TO COME TO A LOSER GAME THAT’S WHY WE CALL YOU GUYS FAKERS, REMEMBER LAST YEAR, YOUR FANS WERE TO BUSY ON THEIR PHONES TO REALIZE THAT THEY WERE GETTING THEIR ASSES HANDED TO THEM. WHEN YOU COME TO A CELTICS GAME EVERY FAN INCLUDING THE CELEBS ARE INTO EVERY PLAY CHEERING FOR THEIR TEAM. BESIDES JACK YOUR FANS ARE FAKE!! KNOW GO WASH YOUR MOUTH OUT YOUR BREATH STINCKS.
My point exactly, for your true fans you have to go to the nose bleed sections but our fans are from court side to the banners. You said it your self, “The reason why you think Laker fans are fake is because all u see is lower level seating with all the fake fans who want to look cool” Thanks for making my point.
Lakers suck what a bunch of crybabies get lebron on your team and they could make a commercial for klenix.Docs coaching and the refs sucked too.Not to mention the free throws paul missed.Damn
ssshady/Rodger, thanks for proving that it’s not only the Lakers that have fans who are whiners.
1. im a celts fan. i dont visit laker fan sites. so why do you guys visit ours? you must have a lot of friends.
2. big baby took 4 jumpers down the stretch. he should have taken 0. he hustles and i love that but powe should have been in not him.
3. the refs were bad both ways but they were worse for us. we did not get all the bs fouls that the lakers were getting (did anyone else notice the 12 and 1’s the lakers got in the second half? if they could shoot free throws we would have been trailing all half)
4. that inbounds play was pathetic. thats the play they think is coming so you set that up then find paul or eddie for some sort of shot.
Good game Lakers.
We will be seeing you in June. ;)
Ray got screwed, but in the end it was a good game, just sucks to lose. Never want to lose, but dropping one in February hurts a lot less than dropping one in june. I’m not sure what Pierce said to Kobe when he was trying to act tough with Rondo, but it must have been good. Hopefully these douches make it past the Spurs and Blazers for a rematch in June.
WILL YOU C CANS THAT KEEP CALLING OUT THE REFS STOP. ITS ANNOYING AND IT MAKES YOU GUYS SEEM WEAK. PLEASE, THIS JUST PROVES THAT CELTICS NEED THE REFS TO WIN GAMES. IM NOT SAYING THE LAKERS NEVER GET A CALL GO IN THEIR DIRECTION, BUT BOTH TEAMS GOT IT. THE REFS LET EM PLAY DOWN THE STRETCH, THE WAY IT SHOULD BE. DONT BE PUSSIES AND ASK THE REFS TO BAIL YOU OUT WHEN YOU TRY TO TAKE A 20 FOOT OFF BALANCE SHOT…IM TALKING ABOUT RAY ALLENS THREE POINT ATTEMPT TO END THE GAME. THAT WAS JUST A HORRIBLE LOOK FOR A GAME WINNER.
