Thanks to docksquad for the following rambling:
My thoughts on the Celtics. The first thing that comes to mind is that they are a very dirty team. The Celts have been committing hard fouls all series long. I can think of maybe 4 fouls right off the top of my head that should have been called Flagrants, that were not. Now I don’t blame them for it, because if the refs don’t care and are not calling it, then hey why not keep doing it.
Also, isn’t it funny that after Perkins and Doc complain about foul calls, that he doesn’t get any fouls called on him in this game? Ya the guy is a beast, but he hits someone every time down the court. Definitely fishy…
Also, my other random thought about the Celts. Sorry but these Celtics are punks. Celts, you guys know you are the defending Champs and the 2 seed in the playoffs right? By the way they are acting and talking, it doesn’t look like it, does it? All of them bark so much, and KG barks the most. I’ve definitely lost respect for that guy. Here is a dope post by my buddy at Pippen Ain’t Easy as he talks more about this topic. During the game, KG was barking at Miller calling him a choker and talking smack to Gordon as he was walking off of the court. Real classy man, you are so HARD! AHH MAN, we are all scared!
I think the Bulls need to get more physical and clap back on the Celts, but they need to do it smartly. Basically just do what the Celtics do. Whenever people go up for layups, clock them hard. These Celts remind me of those Old Pistons Squads that couldn’t stop Jordan, so they just tried to chop him down on every play.
Last shot… how is that not a flagrant foul on Rondo at the end of the game? The dude literally knocked Miller’s tooth out. How did he even go for the ball? Watch the video, then tell me that Rondo went for the ball. What’s sad is that those refs did not have the stones to call it a flagrant foul there in Boston because it was the last play of the game. That’s the truth of the matter, plain and simple. Rondo should be suspended for that hit, but I doubt he will be. Next time, I guess it is ok to just literally punch someone in the face when they are going up for their last shot of the game. Just knock them out and they won’t hit their free throws and you win! Plain genius!
Anyways, since this one is over, there is nothing else we can do about it. But I will say this, these Bulls showed me a lot of heart in the way they played in Game 4, and even today. They did not just fold like the Hornets. This Bulls team is a team full of pride and heart and they have battled all series long. They are not going to go out like that, I just know it. And DRose is not going to go out like that either. The kid is special, and special players always bounce back after bad games, and he will bounce back in Game 6 in a big way. You heard it here first, the Bulls will win Game 6! They are going to win and send this one back to Boston. The crowd will definitely be behind them as well and they will be pumped. Let’s see how it all plays out Thursday, and whatever happens, one thing is for sure, this series has been amazing to watch so far.
