The Q before the storm. Five hours til Game 1. http://t.co/OBVfaj83bP
Four games in four cities in four series in one week. First up: Atlanta
Happy playoff day. Who woulda thought the Celtics would be meeting LeBron James in Round 1?
Playoff Rondo would still rather stick his hand in a ceiling fan than draw a foul around the hoop.
Haha, Sweetchuck getting some camera time.
Josh Smith just pulled the chair on Dirk and now everyone is depressed.
Nailed it http://t.co/cO8pImozXE
If Rose had been healthy the whole time ...
Los Bulls y Bucks ganaron esta temporada sin Rose y Parker. Los dos equipos competirán en esta serie.
Playoff Joakim Noah vs. Playoff Zaza Pachulia. Yes please.
Love the mystique surrounding the potential return of Playoff Rondo. We'll know if it's for real less than two minutes into the game.
Roy Hibbert is a completely different case but....does Roy just need the right situation like.... Evan Turner did? Doesn't fit Pacer's plans
The Warriors could pull a 'fo 'fo 'fo 'fo and people would still be questioning if they're really this good.
Bad news: No Ed Malloy on today's schedule, so the Celtics have a 1-in-4 chance of putting up with that mess tomorrow.
So maybe the Pelicans won't make this a series?
Imagine Westbrook watching this game on the couch while eating a bag of rocks.
Pierce did same as Mike Bibby in '08: Rile opponent's crowd, taking the pressure on himself and off younger teammates.
Paul Pierce giving the 6 some woes!
That was a foul on Porter.
Come up with something, anything
Right down to the typo in his name
The Vasquez Viggle!
That's basically Grevies
I think we need another 20 minutes on this review.
How does Stevens, an NBA playoff rookie himself, keep young Cs from going 100 MPH in their postseason debuts? "They might. I won't be."
I like how Vasquez did the ol' "let the ball roll to save time" move, except it doesn't really work when the clock is already running.
Isaiah Thomas on facing the Cavs in the playoffs: "It’s the opportunity of a lifetime. The whole world is watching."
When Pierce said he's retiring next year, he meant just from the regular season. Will dominate the playoffs for at least another decade.
Man, Toronto must really hate Paul Pierce right about now.
Now you just made him mad, Raptors
Brad Stevens: "You have to play with urgency, you have to play with grit, you have to play with toughness."
So, Mass Pike pretty backed up right now. Why they teach you "jackknife" in traffic reporter school. http://t.co/cDQJh9Qf86
Brad Stevens taking the stay-cool approach: "It's just practice and getting ready to play a game. It's not rocket science or brain surgery."
Is that thing happening again where people doubt Paul Pierce in the playoffs? That usually turns out well.
So, I'm guessing that if Isaiah Thomas isn't scoring well, other teams posting him will get spotlighted. Hasn't happened very often, though.
Enjoyed this quote from Brad Stevens on playoff experience: http://t.co/j5i0SrllkY
Isaiah Thomas: “I’m excited. I’m ready for Game 1 tomorrow. And to quit practicing — I want to get out and play."
Thomas: "Everybody's probably thinking we're gonna get swept. We worry what we can do and not what anyone else says." http://t.co/TsBOq9912E
Thomas on playoffs: "It's what you dream of as a little boy, to play in the playoffs on the big stage." http://t.co/1vpSqsOoNQ
Zeller on what team learned from playing Cavs recently: "You see their actions, how they run pick & roll, get a feel for what they do."
Has Zeller gotten rid of his Cavs gear? "I got rid of that really quick." Gave it to his mom and she discarded it.
Zeller on playing for Cavs: "That does seem like a long time ago. The team has changed so much, but I do have some familiarity with them."
Jerebko: being the underdog is always fun. ... We're very confident
Jerebko: "We all have to be at the top of our game to accomplish what we want to accomplish. It's a team effort and we're ready for it."
Jerebko: "We played them in the last couple weeks & we finished the season strong. It's fun being the underdog. We have a great opportunity.
Stevens: "They're excited for the opportunity. You have to balance urgency with a belief & confidence...we expect (Cleveland) to play well."
High school bowling All-Stars in today's Cleveland Plain Dealer. Love it... but it'd be more impressive if it were candlepins.
