There are probably six or seven NHL teams that could beat the Cavaliers in basketball.
 
2017-05-19 07:45:45 PM  
If they try harder and actually make some shots in the first quarter they'll force Lebron to actually try hard.
 
2017-05-19 07:48:33 PM  
I think the Celtics were slaughtered centuries ago.

puffy999: I think the Celtics were slaughtered centuries ago.


Boudica was a total cutie.  I'd let her burn down my village and slaughter all my neighbors, if you know what I mean. :^)

I think I found the flaw in the Celtics gameplan: get the ball in the hoop, fix that and things would be pretty smooth
 
2017-05-19 08:38:22 PM  
And here we go again with the missed shots.

They've already missed two layups.
 
2017-05-19 08:45:34 PM  
They shouldn't be allowed to have two guys with yellow elbow bands.

Cavs home cooking, as usual.

Kevin Love straight bobbled that ball between his legs and out of bounds. Crowder didn't even touch it.

Worse tonight than Game 1.

Game 1: Cleveland hasn't played a real game in awhile so maybe there's a chance to surprise them.

Game 2: Well, you obviously weren't really ready for the series in Game 1, you probably won't make the same mistakes in Game 2.

I didn't have high hopes, but I thought maybe they'd at least just play like they usually do, not much much worse.

That Kelly Olynyk is not good at basketball. It's not even that the Cavs look unbeatable the Celtics look like a JV basketball team. No discipline and just hold onto the ball and shoot, why bother trying to create shots with ball movement?

That's the thing. The Celtics won a lot of games this year by  moving the ball around and hitting open shots.

It's like they don't even remember how to play.

Didn't watch a lot of games with them but that's what I had thought. Ok, seriously what's with all these T's?
 
2017-05-19 09:09:45 PM  
Wow... back court, really?
 
2017-05-19 09:12:50 PM  

Bootysama: Ok, seriously what's with all these T's?


Refs don't like being called out on their BS. I don't think it's been egregiously officiated, but the Celtics aren't getting any calls at all for  being at home. Now I don't agree with home-friendly refs, but since that's what the NBA employs, it would be nice to see it here.

Bootysama: Wow... back court, really?


Even dumber is Horford was ahead of everybody. If he just went to the basket it would have been an easy pass for a layup.

Raptors woulda beat the Celtics
 
2017-05-19 09:18:15 PM  

lilol: Raptors woulda beat the Celtics


That's what we were saying at the start of the playoffs, that the C's were lucky to be in a spot where they wouldn't have to play them unless it was the ECF.

Agreed. Because from what I'm watching this game is embarrassing

Heading to the Celtics worst halftime playoff deficit ever, home or road.

Tied worst at home the other night.
 
2017-05-19 09:26:28 PM  
There's no MMA thread tonight on FARK?

Wow.
 
2017-05-19 09:26:46 PM  
Celtics playing like they're so excited about that #1 pick that they're done with this season.

It's glorious.
 
2017-05-19 09:27:30 PM  
LOFL, geez... fourtyburger point lead...
 
2017-05-19 09:27:41 PM  
I hope this version of Love shows up for the Finals.

They would have a much better chance at things...

So bad they aren't even doing Celtics sound bites on the Inside Traxx.
 
2017-05-19 09:31:13 PM  
Micheal couldn't beat the Celtics in the playoffs.  LeBron beats 'em by forty in a half.

Really and truly shows you what a dominant player that Micheal was.  LeBron is too scared to play in a close game, so he has to blow them out.  Micheal deliberately kept it close because he wanted the thrill of competition.
 
2017-05-19 09:32:42 PM  
Maybe the Celtics will get excited about being able to close the gap once they're down 30 with a quarter or so left again.

Lol @ Stevens face after that miss.

Lololololololol @ JR Smith for the record!

...er, um, they're in Boston.

LeBron would be worked by Bird, McHale, and Parish...
 
2017-05-19 09:37:54 PM  
So... that happened...
 
2017-05-19 09:38:14 PM  
I wish they would play it out and beat Boston by 82, causing the league to take away the Celtics' #1 pick.

Just to hear Simmons cry more.

No, I'm pretty sure losing by 82 would justify them having the #1 pick.

/In fact, give 'em the #2 pick if they suck that much...

IlGreven: Mike_LowELL: Micheal couldn't beat the Celtics in the playoffs.  LeBron beats 'em by forty in a half.

Pretty much.  Bird would start calling his shot like sixty, seventy, eighty feet from the basket, frustrating LeBron's attempts to guard him.  Then Parish would punch Bill Laimbeer in the face several times, causing LeBron to freak out.  "Basketball is not a contact sport!  Stop it!  Stop it!"

'86 Celtics win the best-of-five in two games.  Book it.  Done.

They're playing like they're still trying to earn that #1.

I dunno, if you lose by 82 you're definitely the worst team in the league...

Subby is not in possession of the power of prophecy, it would seem.
 
2017-05-19 09:42:08 PM  
Boston has 11 buckets and 10 turnovers.
 
2017-05-19 09:42:24 PM  
This feels like a repeat of Warriors/Spurs game 2, where the Spurs didn't think they could win without Kawhi so they got destroyed. The Celtics are playing like they don't think they can win.
 
2017-05-19 09:45:14 PM  
So when do the celtics get their "conference finalists" banner?
 
2017-05-19 09:45:19 PM

Well, in fairness, they weren't getting crushed before the game started.

/not subby

Is your sarcasm meter calibrated properly now?

Please, they're more likely to put up a "We embarrassed ourselves" banner.

It turns out that Anthony Weiner is a Celtics fan...img.fark.net

 Cleveland needs about 6 points,  then they could literally take 24 second violations for the rest of the game.
 
2017-05-19 10:11:05 PM  
I don't want to wish injury on somebody, but if Lebron did happen to get injured because they didn't sit him right now, I might enjoy it just a teeny bit.

But at this point I'd rather see what the Cavs and Warriors do with each other with both teams fully loaded and no excuses.
 
2017-05-19 10:21:40 PM  
Hey, they only lost this quarter by five points.
 
2017-05-19 10:26:49 PM  
50!
