[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Sixers, Game 4 : There was sentiment they were done in the first half of the season. TRADE 'em, get rid of them, etc. Then, they looked bad in games against Atlanta and how could we stink like that. Atlanta's going to beat our butts. Then when Philly won in Boston - we stunk and we were dead according to some folks. Then tonight, you're saying we have no killer instinct as if the Celtics didn't go in trying to win the game and trying to put a dagger in Philly. You just need some faith man.....how many times do you have to see this team fight hard before you realize that KG, Paul, etc will not rollover and lay an egg. From the fight in 2009 against Chicago and Orlando to the 2010 season when no one thought we'd get to the finals to this year when folks like you wrote us off...... please think about the heart of this team and have faith. We will win!!!! Go Celtics!!!!

teams should not go backwards- we struggled in 2008 vs. hawks and away from home and then after a certain point, we were beyond that and brutalized cleveland at home.
so you expect that the "heart" of a team would now lead these abject terrible performances? this isn't one game, or two or three. it's ALL BUT ONE GAME in this post season has been horrible. that's a lot.
it indicates there is a problem with the team. coaching is obviously a problem looking at the spread of tonight's minutes which made as much sense as dousing yourself in gasoline and playing with matches.
beyond that, obviously some other issues too. like lack of heart...
everyone has pride at one point or another- that's what you saw in game 3- pride and anger. now back to malaise. arguably mildly to heavily assisted by rivers tonight. avery with the superior +/- and bass with a good performance do not see enough time and KG gets used up like an old shoe....
many would argue that the "brain" of a team is the coach.... and i think we got crickets there instead of any thinking. with no brain, doesn't matter what the heart does
