ManilaHeat

Congrats Celts you are the team to beat this season imo. But not yet over, lots of games to play and Heat’s been in a lot more difficult and dire situation. Go Heat!

ManilaHeat

I guess some Bos fans gonna visit here again and check us out haha
See you in playoffs. Or not lol

heat for life

brown and tatum in april still rather have jimmy

Heatfeet

You do know Jimmy didn’t make a conference finals till he was 30? Tatum has made four before his 25th birthday.

ZechMerquise

this is getting really ugly, we will be the 1st team to lose by 60 lol

ManilaHeat

Nah just a team that made 10pts in the 4th lol

heat for life

were u formally zach karp?

heat for life

reggie with this white sht again again again ridiculous

heat for life

why is bam out there

heat for life

pls take bam out spobot

heat for life

if u cant play d u cant play in this league. we have guys that cant play d so obvious.cant win with one way players.maybe one thats it

heat for life

celts are making lots of uncontested shots.nba players gonna make those shots

Bout30man

Folks, I don’t get the feeling we are going to catch up tonite. I’m not going to far out in a limb in saying that.
Now, a little I told everyone so. This is how wide the gap got between us. Jimmy used to carry us. If he isn’t playoff Jimmy, we can’t compete without improving from outside. Rozier was a nice step and getting JJJ back will help even more. But, maybe not enough. But, there were people saying we had enough before we got Rozier and that was far from real. I understand how anyone could think that with last year. But, Father Time has intervened. We are still a decent team, but how good is to be determined up till the trade deadline. We may still need more. Let’s see how the next five or so games go.

ManilaHeat

Yep…but hope they just make it closer in the end. The gap does look so wide but im not losing hope ’till the fat lady sings this season. Its Terry’s second game. Need a few more I guess. I just want to avoid that play-in and go from there. We’ll see

heat for life

lets pls judge when jjj back im think hes our best player currently

Bout30man

That’s a heavy burden for Jaime. He is probably is our third best player and we miss him.

heat for life

just wait 30 i guarantee our team will look better with him

ManilaHeat

Bos: take that Heat! That’s for being on our head since last playoffs 😁😆

heat for life

brown is happy not to see oladipo anymore

heat for life

no jimmy spobot save wear and tear

Reality Czech

Heading towards 5th loss in a row. It’ll drop us to 7th.

heat for life

if spo cant see the defensive deficiencies of ty n dunc he may need to go to an eye dr

SundayAfternoons

This feels like deja vu. We lose to the Celtics big once, we win big once, two other games are contested affairs, and then the playoffs happen.

heat for life

jjj will be back soon hes our best player.after watching jim bam ty think jjjs the best of the bunch.

Big_guy305

Celtics shooting over 60 percent for the whole game, I guess that’s sustainable for them.

ManilaHeat

Celts good at making changes it seems compared to last season. Lead goes up again. Really the team to beat in the east most likely. Hate to face them as the 8th seed just saying

Big_guy305

Need to make another trade

heat for life

ty n dunc dont work dam it spobot

Reality Czech

That certainly is not the main problem in this game, lol!

heat for life

defense main problem they dont help that sir

Reality Czech

This deficit goes a lot deeper than 2 players. Everybody sucked tonight, dude

ZechMerquise

lets give swider, cain, hampton some burn. this game is over

heat for life

cain should be in the rotation.

heat for life

if hh not gonna look to score pull him

heat for life

brown and tatum still in prime jimmys not. in april ill take jimmys savvy over brown or tatum

ManilaHeat

Hope that’s still true come playoffs. Seems Jimmy lost a step this regular season

heat for life

playoffs mind set changes

heat for life

porzingis more fragile than tua

heat for life

f the celts rather lose to the knicks that these bums

Bout30man

Sometimes you win the battle but lose the war.

heat for life

porzy hurt somethings never change

2qbn

Yup. They are a regular season team like the 76ers. Their main bigs are injury prone like a mofo

Reality Czech

Porzingis, yet another injury

ManilaHeat

I said make it close…not make them close this game out in the 3rd

Big_guy305

Celtics just too hot

2qbn

Yeah that is tough to match up against when they are over 50% from 3

Reality Czech

They are just not missing

heat for life

reggie quick kissing whites ass jeez hes an ok player not an all star

Reality Czech

Um, I think they just said he is an all star

ManilaHeat

No turd pls….pleassseeeee?

heat for life

are barkley and crew familiar with jjj.no mention of our rookie stud missing

ManilaHeat

At least Heat fighting… keep it close and maybe strike at the ending. Wishful thinking 😁

2qbn

Agree. Surprised we had a chance to cut it to 5, but missed. Celtics going cold in second half so we’ll have a shot

Reality Czech

They need to change that punitive rule. If the foul occurs nearly simultaneously with the shot, they should allow whichever is the most points. Shot missed, give the free throws. Shot made, count it.

ManilaHeat

Refs and their rules suck this season. Every year seems it gets bad

SundayAfternoons

it’s the simplest way, how else would they judge continuation? Can the player take a step, make a move, pump fake?

It’s not that I disagree, I think more “power play” type judgement could flow in a game, I just think it’s too hard to standardize.

Bout30man

Funny thing is I thought we played reasonably well. We would have needed the Iron Dome weapons system to stop the Celtics.

2qbn

hahahaha! Seriously, it was ridiculous. I officially put “el mal de ojo” on the Celtics for the 2nd half. Sub-zero they will go

ManilaHeat

Israel doesn’t want to share that tech. Sadly lol

Big_guy305

Trash refs tonight with celtics shooting over 60 percent is a lethal combo

2qbn

That 3 Boston made was par for the course that first half. Just making everything

heat for life

jalen brown balling now in april diff story

Reality Czech

Instead of 4, we got 1. And they get a 3.

2qbn

Yup. Crap

heat for life

dont like that rule stupid rule

Reality Czech

Get the f out of here!!!!

heat for life

foul way before shot

Big_guy305

Make up call incoming

heat for life

bost getting all the calls

Big_guy305

Yup

heat for life

porz is healthy now come april doubt it

Big_guy305

Jimmy needs to shoot at least 20 times tonight.

2qbn

HH has never played soccer. You never make a pass that far across the goal

heat for life

ty was going up the ct to

Reality Czech

That bad pass was not on Herro. Sheesh

heat for life

he could have come to the pass and maybe gotten fouled by brown

Reality Czech

Coulda woulda shoulda, it was a bad pass

2qbn

BS call

Big_guy305

Terrible call

heat for life

tatum off either him or brown is off when they play us
