Why is it that after the Lakers BEAT the Celtics, they completely are falling to pieces. It's beyond panic time for Celtics fans, and evryone on this forum who said we could learn a thing or two about playing hard evry nght from the Celtics, see now that going full-on every game can bite you in the azszsz. Bottom line I believe they played too hard, what do you think?

I don't know or care what's wrong with them; I just hope they keep losing.

they suck, they are one hit wonders and the lakers ruined them. we showed the nba how to play the celts and now teams like the knicks and bobcats are beating them.

never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

inconsistent offense
almost no bench production
pathetic performance on the road
mismatch nightmare against athletic teams like Wizards, Knicks, Bobcats, etc...
no backup center
no PJ Brown or Posey to save their unclutch superstars *cough* KG *cough*
etc...

Beyond panic time? They're still second in the east, and just had a 19-game win streak about 2 weeks ago. The fatigue from that has probably caught up with them. They'll bounce back. Probably not to another 19-game win streak, but they'll bounce back to stay competitive in the East.

^ duh, i know they will be competitive, but now they arent as invincible and with teams like the Cavs, Magic and Hawks, they are in trouble as far as repeating goes

I love their total disarray right now. It helps if we actually capitalize on it, unlike last night's game.

it's because the laker's win's now show to the other teams in the league that THEY CAN beat the celtics, and by them keep on losing everyone is playing hard and defeating the douchebag and the turds.

1. No backup center

2. No scoring off the bench...burdens big 3

3. Mentally weak....KG has been known for being screwy up in the head. WTF happened to his scoring ability? He used to get 24 a game.

to add, they lost the chip on their shoulder when people proclaimed them to be all high and mighty, now these losses could help them regain it, whats sad is, Doc rivers will get fired if they get even worse as far as this funk is concerned, tom "T" will get promoted and that will be the end of that chapter
