RC is making some bad rotations...

He took both Oneal and Foster out right when they were starting to get going. I really think Foster needs to play more to win. Dale Davis has been inneffective the last few games, hes looking tired. Hes not even battling for position for rebounds anymore. Besides, Fosters atheleticism matches up with the Celtics better than DD's toughness.

JJ looked like he might have had more to contribute too.

IMO those were great substitutions. they would be bad if it were the 4th quarter. But Rick is plannin ahead. Keep the big fellas outta foul trouble. You are watchin smart pacer basketball. Thank god we got a good coach that is giving us a shot at winning this game.

Yip... I made a Sassan sighting as well

I agree about Tinsley and the shot clock. I'm even wondering if I'd just prefer he hold onto it then too... at least we'd have time to setup our defense after a shot clock violation rather than them getting a fast break off a long rebound from a Tinsley miss.

My halftime assessment:

We're leading - good. We're getting some good offensive looks - good. We're playing pretty good D - with some decent rebounds and some nice blocks.

Jax - looking good. Tins - looking pretty good. Reggie - needs to get more involved. JJ - needs to get more involved.

We're on track to win this one. Let's just hold on and play solid down the stretch.

We have GOT to do a better job of rebounding. I'm seeing too many boards getting grabbed by Boston even though it's 1 against 3. I thought rebounding was suppose to be our advantage against this team.

Butt ugly game so far.

I don't know how UB is dealing with it, but i'm so used to it's live.. just makes you pray and hope that much more that they make it to the next round so you can watch em, on espn down under...

i must say i'm not sure about the TV rights this year as Espn seems to have screwed me with there coverage... i seen just the one pacer post season game..

if i have understood there add's correct then it seems they have exclusive coverage of the West Finals while TNT has the East which screws me again as I don't get TnT, hopefully when we play the Pigs From Piston City every game will be on espn downunder
