Ummm… Boston?

29 05 2008

Err…
Pick a game between Detroit and Boston? Hell, flip a coin.
It’s a best-of-3 series now, and in this situation, you gotta go with the team with home-court advantage.
And that’d be Boston.
I guess I’m tipping the Celtics then.
But tight?
Blowout?
Who the hell knows?
Anyone who tells you that they do know is lying.
Period.

If Boston are going to do anything more, then the big three – including Ray Allen – must step up. Must.
If Detroit are going to get going, then Flip should play Stuckey a little more. And Maxiell. Billups has advantages, but he’s obviously not 100%. He’s not even 75%.
If the Detroit Pistons win this one… forget about it. They will close out in game 6 at home.

Aaagh… would it surprise me for the Pistons to come out and win this? No.
Would it surprise me if the Celtics won this game by 20? No.
How about Boston winning by 3? No surprises there.
Unbelievable.

But picking possible results out of a hat… let’s see… ok, it’s Boston winning by a less-than-7 margin.
And the reasoning behind that is purely feeling. No reason other than a) I have a feeling, and b) Boston were the better team during the season.
That’s all I have, that’s all anyone has… anyone who tells you different is full of it.

is the spirit of Bill Russell controling Kendrick Perkins’ body tonight? 4 of 5 shooting and 4 rebounds in the first 9 minutes?

Kendrick my man! 6 of 9 shooting for 12 pts, 13 rebounds and a blocked shot in under 20 minutes……

Yup… and back to Motor City.
Don’t like your chances there Rob… this one’s going the distance.
Yet another 7 game series for Boston!

Sheesh… and if the Lakers can close out the Spurs tomorrow…

I think we get blown out in Game 6, but win Game 7 at home….

Is that ‘think’, or ‘hope’?… at least with regards to winning game 7.
Should be a hellishly good 2 games coming up…

I “think” we get blown out in Game 6, I “guarantee” a home court win in Game 7

O… guarantees? Your last name now ‘Wallace’?

Yup… a nice ‘n’ easy 9:30am here for game 6.
I’ll be watching if it’s on TV, if it’s not (and it had better be), be keeping track via the net…
Looking forward to it!

as Rip goes, so go the Pistons…

Rip plays and he’s 100% – Pistons by 15
Rip plays and he’s around 75% – Pistons by a bucket
No Rip – RIP Pistons, Celtics by 10

See you at the game!
