I have a feeling Boston will win tonight.

kdawg7736: I have a feeling Boston will win tonight.


Boston?   Are you sure it's not more than a feeling?
 
2022-05-27 8:21:46 PM  
I don't know why the Celtics pregame show is showing a countdown clock to tipoff that reads "8:39"

I hope it's not just foreplay.

Celtics by 100,000,001

Or some other number divisible by 17

Random thing. I'm at a research conference and one symposium focused on sports stats as big data and how it informs decision making. One talk was how ranking 1st in either pts, assists, and boards significantly skews likelihood of being 1st team all nba. Essentially NBA rewards specialists and punishes your all arounders/generalists.

Celtics on a quiet 7-0 run.
 
2022-05-27 9:09:46 PM  
So much for that as Butler hits a three.
 
2022-05-27 9:11:45 PM  
HOW THE F*CK DO YOU GIVE UP AN OFFENSIVE REBOUND WITH ROBERT WILLIAMS STANDING RIGHT THERE?

I'll tell you...effort, he's just looking up.

If Miami keeps hitting their threes they may overcome much of their bad play tonight.
 
2022-05-27 9:29:35 PM  
Refs making up for the fact that Miami was committing all the fouls in the first quarter.

Weird - stopped a bar in Kauai moments ago. With the time difference, at 317pm, the game was underway.

Time zones! How the fark do they work?!?!?

Funny, my best "Celtic fan" friend was in Hawaii last week. He had a couple opportunities to watch part of the game live, but he knew he might not even get to see the game because, well...they're in Hawaii.
 
2022-05-27 9:37:38 PM  
shiat, almost forgot there was a game tonight.
 
2022-05-27 9:38:04 PM  
Lead at five...Smart jacks up another three...it ALMOST rolls in...what makes me mad is Rob Williams is standing there just watching to see if it's going to go in. farking get ready for a rebound motherfarker!
 
2022-05-27 9:45:14 PM  
Go game 7!
 
2022-05-27 9:48:11 PM  
Butler is 1 rebound and 5 assists away from a triple double right now.
 
2022-05-27 9:58:23 PM  
Celtics fell asleep just as they were taking control of the game. Defense is pretty good, but nowhere near as good as they can be.

Derrick White is sneaky good on defense. I was glad to hear some local people noticing that. He just finds ways to sneak up behind somebody and pop the ball out or find himself in the right spot to get his hands in there.

The Mike Breen / Van Gundy team after all these years.  Here's the headline and tagline for an SB article from June 1, 2012:

Media Roundup: Mike Breen And His Evident Dislike Of The Boston Celtics
Mike Breen is a longtime basketball broadcaster with a big-time job at ESPN, but his evident hatred of the Boston Celtics has become clear in recent years, specifically in the Celtics' current series against the Miami Heat.

Man, that Carl's Jr dinosaur burger was pretty good.

Guess I'll go die of a heart attack now.

If he's part of the play-by-play/color team I'm not hearing any of that. But I don't pay attention to the names so maybe he's on the halftime show or something.
 
2022-05-27 10:05:38 PM  
OK, he's the play-by-play guy. Not seeing any dislike of the Celtics.
 
2022-05-27 10:07:08 PM  
Local Celtics halftime thinks Miami is too comfortable.
 
2022-05-27 10:08:05 PM  
Refs on LSD tonight.
 
2022-05-27 10:21:04 PM  
Heh, both teams 25/25 on free throws tonight.

Celtics seem like they're letting it slip away. Can't let the Heat get hot here. Well...so much for that as Strus hits another three.

Boston right back in it. Can't let this go to 7 in Miami, finish it here.
 
2022-05-27 10:33:33 PM  
Miami has been in the bonus since about three minutes into the quarter. most of them off-the-ball or offensive rebounds.
 
2022-05-27 10:34:29 PM  
I love when the same player who made a great defensive play gets the points at the other end. But Strus is on fire now.
 
2022-05-27 10:35:55 PM

My internet is dildos.

A series of dildos has filled the tubes.

31/31 from the line for both teams. Incredible.

C's ended the quarter fine, but they fell so far behind that it just means they're not losing by as much as they could have been.

I figured the Heat would start to wilt late, but Jimmy Butler is not hurt anymore. He may have just played lightly (which is why he didn't look good) so he could recover.

It's satisfying when free throws are made.
 
2022-05-27 10:44:44 PM  
I see what they're saying about challenging for the one free throw...but they probably need to keep Grant from getting the foul and also make a statement that the refs made a mistake.

So, knowing the NBA refs, the challenge will be unsuccessful. Can't have people think they were wrong.

I honestly am not sure what teams it is your generally root for.
 
2022-05-27 10:48:09 PM  
Wow...Grant is expendable right now. They're gonna let him play until he fouls out.

Got it, what about the other sports? All Detroit?

You know I might have been able to adopt Seattle, but Kraken? Just not a PNW name.
 
2022-05-27 10:50:43 PM  
How is that not a foul on what the Heat were doing to Grant Williams on that rebound? Two Heat players had both his arms locked up.

Basketball I gotta admit I like the Warriors, the team here, not so much the franchise.

Bowie over Jordan and Hakeem...

Not picking MJ did actually make sense since they had Clyde but damnit they could have had one of the best centers of all time too.
 
2022-05-27 10:53:41 PM  
Oof...

Um, jay, ignore baseball
 
2022-05-27 10:54:32 PM  
That is BS.
