The same thing people were saying last year around this time; they are old. Then the Celtics turned it up in the playoffs and then people were saying that the C's felt disrespected. They are ok.

The effort is just not there because they're old. So they really don't have the energy to put it there. But once playoffs come, yes I agree, they will be more rested up, and ready to put all the effort in.

Offense is the main problem. It's putrid. Defense has been fine. Kind of ironic though considering that Perkins was an offensive liability.

Celtics really miss Shaq, Perkins, Sheed, Nate, Tony Allen and Tom Thibodeau out there.

I think that Perk trade might have gotten under their skin a bit.

You're crazy if you think this team won't show up to play Miami or Chicago. Now, are they in a better position now to beat either of those teams than they were pre-trade? I don't think so, but they're going to be competitive to say the least.

Dude can't shoot, not my fault. He had ray for 4yrs, been in the league 5 and struggles to hit open jumpshots and freethrows as a guard. Throw in the statpadding too.

how we should have perkins

Get your head outta your ass and be real man. The C's are making it hard for them to win #18. Now we have to beat LA on the road, and the Bulls as well.
Throw in the fact that Jermaine is horrible and shaq hasn't played in months.

Can't compare them to last year IMO. Last year they had mad injuries and were pretty far back in terms of HCA and such, not much reason to tear it up down the stretch. This year, couple weeks ago, they had the #1 seed and then started to struggle. Having HCA is crucial in the east esp when you look at the Bulls record at home, they shouldn't be uninspired right now. They're missing Perkins right now, they still got time to turn it around though.

They are still favourites to beat both. With or without homecourt.

I would never count out a team with KG, PP and Ray on it. They will likely make the finals but them losing these games will hurt them if they face L.A without homecourt.

Well you have more confidence in them than I do. This team appears to be running on fumes but then again anything can happen in the playoffs.
