vs. BOS: Opponent Game Thread Highlights
Today’s opponent game thread host body: CelticsBlog Forum.
A couple of quick observations–
1) They are still really angry over there about KG getting hurt in SLC last year. They also think all the fans in the house stood and cheered KG’s injury.

I really want this one more than any game in a long time, after those classy Jazz fans celebrated when KG hurt his knee last year (check the clip – two-thirds of the arena stood up and cheered).
There isn’t a more hateful fan base in the NBA. They make LA fans look classy (but not clueless – LA owns that category hands down).
2) Overall, most of the posters were very positive people and voices of reason. Even when the Jazz were tearing it up in the second half and late in the 4th, they were still saying things like “there’s still time for a run” and “we can still win.” After the Jazz won, most of the comments were along the lines of “You can’t win them all and we never gave up and we played them tough,” “The sky is not fallling,” and “We played well tonight, IMO… we just got beat. It happens. But I def liked our energy tonight.” It’s so…unfanlike. :-)
Now, onto the highlights:

Bad calls on both sides now btw.

The reffing has been poor quality. A lot of missed calls mixed in with unnecessary calls.

Jazz may be playing an entire unit of guards by the end of the game if the fouls in their frontcourt continue.

These refs suck both ways!

Didn’t know nba hire clowns to be refs

I knew the refs would flip the script in the second half.
They were way to good to us in the first.

Refs can u just let these guys play…and quit calling a foul on everything
Nice things said about the Jazz:

Yeah, Jazz is a team I can respect if mostly for Jerry Sloan. And those fans should know well-played basketball.

Okur can make a three with a blindfold on….just one of those nights. Sad

Deron Williams is unbelievable.
My Note: Not sure if “unbelievable” here was good or bad, as there were quite a few comments about Deron’s whining. And to think…he’s actually quieted down in the last 3-4 games.

It’d be cool if we had a center who could hit threes
My Note: This one’s funny because the reason the Jazz were able to sign Memo was because the Pistons had committed big money to Rasheed, who’s now on the Celtics. At least, that’s what they said in the @ DET opponent game thread.

How in the world are we leaving a 7 foot 270 pounder open for threes??
He is kinda hard to miss, lol…

Tough to win when CJ Miles and Paul Pierce switch bodies.
FallGuy Reply #379 on: Yesterday at 11:32:09 pm
Jazz earned those calls in the second half. They were – in a word – awesome.

No disrespect to Rondo. Deron Williams is on another level. The guy is a beast. Hopefully Rondo can be a consistent force in the future.
liam Reply #398 on: Yesterday at 11:40:00 pm
Yup, he’s the LeBron of Point guards! But Rondo will be playing longer that DeRon will this year.
PosImpos Reply #405 on: Yesterday at 11:41:37 pm
D Will is probably the best PG in the league.
Greenbean Reply #430 on: Yesterday at 11:55:07 pm
Yeah [Deron] is an awesome player and it’s about time he started getting credit for his defense. I cant think of another guy in the past 20 years that is like him. Strong, fast, shooter, passer, smart.
I mean hes not the 2nd coming of Magic or Cousy or anything just a really unique player who competes pretty hard.
Finally, two comments on Boler and Booner:

The announcers are not horrible and irritating!

presently surprised by the unbiased Jazz TV crew. Not a lot of Homerism
