The general consensus among the Raptors boards was that they got robbed by the officials and that the refs are in KG's pockets. Interesting take on it. No matter how you look at it, this had to be a tough loss for them to swallow. The Raptors dominated for 3 quarters and then got beat in the 4th. Lots of interesting comments for you to enjoy................
I don't see this ending pretty tonight. I'd like to think that Bosh will be fresh for tonight, but the minutes he's been playing to start the season will likely catch up on days like today against big teams like the Celts.
Very curious to see how Bosh will look against KG. It'll be a measuring stick for him to see how far he's come.
Its gonna take the Raptors' most solid defensive game of the season to even keep this one close... And HOT shooting.
Gonna be a bloodbath if the Raps don't find a defense. Tommy Points will be flying out tonight.
Raptors should win this game. Both teams are coming from back to back games, but hopefully the Raptors will pull out with the win. Celtics will have more turnovers, and we have to take advantage of the match-up between Jose and Rajon.
Bosh is going to school KG tonight
Theres absolutely no reason for us or any other team outside the lakers to win at Boston. Only way we come with a win is as simply as the whole team plays INSANELY good.
Wow... Lol... This is amazing... I haven't seen the Raps start a game like this (against a good opponent) in AGES. So aggressive. It's great.
Bad calls, bad calls, bad calls
I dunno if anyone else is watching the Celt's feed, but Heinsohn just called Joey Graham--get this-- a good player! How absurd is that?
Beating the Celtics by 14 O-M-G
I don't think I've seen the Celtics post KG trade look this bad. Ever.
WOW!!! KG just tole the ref wat to do o.0
I thought JO and Perkins were about to go toe-to-toe.
Expect a BIG push from BOS when they come out in the 2nd half.
JO showing some guts going after Perkins I love it!
HAHAHA Pierce missed 2 lay ups
Graham, Oneal, Kapono: The new big three.
I don't want to be the bad guy. But we are going to lose this game. No way Boston shoots and defends so badly in the second half
.Bosh is scared of Garnett.
I hate KG
KG is firing up his team.... Bosh HAS to counter.
LOL ... Jose cursing Garnet!
Yea...very bad news for the Rapz....once KG gets goin...even Scalabrine will get goin
That was actually pretty good defense there by Powe.
Pierce gets a lot of calls.
Referees might as well give them the game.
Boston's defense is sufficating right now
Can't keep the Refs outta the bookies, or from dictating the game for the "world champs" when a lessor kown team is working hard.
Can't blame the refs. The Celts are picking up their games HUGE. We just have to match it.
I'm watching the Boston feed, and even they've questioned a few calls. That doesn't happen. Ever.
PIERCE KILLIN US
KG won't allow his team to lose now!
Ummmm... Hi God? Can you put a plague on the BOS shooters? Kthankxbye
Pierce is deadly.
A top 5 worse loss in Raps history for sure.
Celtics/Refs - 94 Raps - 87
Just hand over the trophy to the Celtics already...
Worst officiating ever.
To the Boston fans reading this thread - you did not win this game with Pierce's clutchness. That wouldn't even be a factor without the help of the refs. Good job at getting an undeserving win.
We're still the same soft team year after year. A lot to blame. Sam, Bosh & Jose. You can just see it the way KG bullied Jose. Jose was looked like a wuss.
I hate KG with a passion.
That reffing display was undoubtedly the worst I have seen. It killed all the momentum the Raps worked so hard to build. PATHETIC and unfair. Changing calls a few times because KG says so!!
IF IT WAS ANYONE ELSE WHO PULLED THAT **** KG WAS DOING ON HIS 1 MAN PRESS THEY WOULD BE T'ED UP
The day KG or Pierce will break his ankle I will cry tears of happiness... This league is really a joke with this refs...
Don't blame KG. If he was on our team y'all would be loving it. Blame our players for allowing it to happen. Bullies pick on people they know they can handle. As you all know Raps are the softest team in the League.
We shouldn't try to use the refs as a scapegoat tonight.. The players and coaching staff failed tonight..
LoL I love how the refs totally ignored what KG did, good job. Stern needs to suspend some of these refs for being sooo stupid. They buy into the hype since its KG and the fans are going crazy. And that was just one play..
I really wished we still had Bonner to throw KG's a** down to the floor again.
KG vs. Bosh = Man vs. Boy.
Its clear bosh is very intimidated by KG.
...Me thinks Smitch wants KG to win, there I said it!
Boston,...where playing dirty and paying the refs happens/
Hey man, I just want to say I don't at all blame the refs on the loss tonight... BUT I have NEVER seen the refs change their call because a player whines it's the wrong call, but tonight they did it TWICE! And the thing is, on the replay it looked like they had the right call to begin with
I havent seen so many calls reversed and go to the home team before, ever. If that's the call, THAT'S THE CALL! Reversing it constantly makes it look like you got paid off.
Someone buy Doc Rivers some cough drops. That guy has a permanent sore throat!
