Jameer Nelson: We will win Game 5 -- -- OrlandoSentinel.com
Rip made Dooling into his little girlfriend after the first time they butted heads. That was freaking awesome. AMEN! We played the bench in the reg season so they could spot the starters in the playoffs IF NEEDED (injuries, etc), and so that the starters would be capable of playing 40+ mins for the whole playoffs. The officials need to be more cognizant of Howard's shoving, and of how he will stand inside the lane for entire defensive possessions without getting called for three seconds.
That's Tays signature move, seen it before. Now I know why you like Sheed so much, you like his violent dance imitations. - VanGuns said he couldn't speak to the officiating without losing money.
That's just Mario talking crap. He knows they got beat.
Props Due to LH, that Tie up on Nelson.....SWEET!!!! Props to Dyess, that Howard take down was A-W-E-S-O-M-E BABY!!!! Howard tried to slam Dyess first, but Dyess was like, "Naw, young fella, YOU'RE the ONE GOING DOWN!!!" BAM!!!! Props to Flip for the playoff adjustments. Putting Rip on Lewis was pretty cool. It made them forget about the Turk- who's money in the fourth and force feed their overpaid psuedo-star....STUPID!!!!! Maybe Flip is learning how to win in the Playoffs. GREAT WIN!!! I'm proud of that team, that 2nd half effort looked awfully familiar to a team I used to know and love in 2003,04, & 05.
Coy, He did say he couldn't find them shots and that was on him. - KGreg, gotta love the and ones we've been forcing.
do you guys think, since Billups was on the side line, that he was able to pick the magic apart?? Sometimes it's easier to examine a teams play from the sideline. I think that missing one game would be a huge scouting point for Billups. As far as Nelson's comments go, what is suppose to say. then again, he could try and hook Stuckey's, Hunter's, hell ,the whole team feet. strained hamstrings for everybody. There is going to be some hard fouls coming from the Magic. The Diceman/Superman body slam was only a glimpse on what might happen to get Detroit out of their game. No suspensions, no T's please!!!
Sometimes I think Chauncey is smart. And sometimes I don't.
We seem to be a dwindling group who still believes that Amir can make an impact. I still believe at some point he will get his shot this post season and be the extra ingredient to help put us over the top.
I believe he could make an impact, but I no longer believe he will get a shot. I really thought prior to the playoffs that it was going to happen for him. :(
I would love to see him incorporated, but I'm not dwelling on it. I would guess that game 5 is the most likely scenario for him to see real PT. Flip has already mentioned that he thinks he could match-up well in this series. So a home game with a 3-1 lead and an injured starter seems like a possible window of opportunity. For it to happen, we probably need to end the first quarter with a lead an some big man foul trouble.
sometimes Chauncey thinks you're smart. And sometimes he doesn't.
If Dyess keeps manning up, forget about Amir. And Amir will be gone in 1 year.
Let's keep a little perspective here, we are 7 up 3 down in the playoffs, Amir has gotten a little burn...
I still can't believe that we won this game. Rip and Tay just plain played like stars. Tay is at a new confidence level. I am glad that we stuck with the core. I feel much better with the win than getting guys minutes and we lose. Our youth is not consistent which is usually the case in this league. Maxiel has given us some good minutes but has he scored the last two games? Glad he was in on the last play vs. Hedo's drive. Maxiell helped a lot in game 1. Stuckey is not finishing at the hoop consistently. Not in the playoffs. Not at this level. Not yet anyway. And, his defense has not been very good. Nelson has taken him at least a few times. One of their forwards was taking the ball to the rack in game 4 and Stuckey happened to be there and sort of froze. As a guard you jump out and make the big pick up the dribble. Still, he was in on our good run in the 3rd quarter. Good. He is not afraid to shoot. Good. Ratliff has been disappointing in that he is slow. He makes blocks but he doesn't board well. We can't play the Hunter card too much but it was the right move in game 4. In the playoffs, winning is everything. If the bench can help win a game here or there, that is all one can ask. We are up 3-1 because our stars played like stars.
I don't think we're dwindling as much as ppl are like Darth said just giving up. I truly hope he gets thrown in there at some point, and was beyond dissappointed when he didn't get a chance on Lewis after what Flip said. I'm holding out hope like you though. Defense can make huge impacts in the PO's, and both Amir and AA provide that.
