NBA Finals Game 6 Thread: Lakers Up Against The Wall

Well at least we can prove Paul Pierce wrong, since we're back here playing in LA again. But let's prove him wrong in the biggest of ways, starting with a win tonight.

Lakers vs. Celtics, Game 6 (6 p.m. PT on ABC). We want a Game 7!

So, we in here now?

Fred's Brim said...

in there like swimwear

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

20 minutes to tip.

karen said...

Watching the Countdown is making me nervous

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

15 minutes.

Breaking out the Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst. All my walls have been lined with bubblewrap.

NicJ said...

i took tomorrow and friday off work so i can spend all day crying in my room if needed.

NicJ said...

On the bright side, if the lakers lose at least i wont be forced to watch stupid promos for "Grown Ups" anymore.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Five minutes.

NicJ said...

i think this national anthem might outlast the dodgers rain delay.

NicJ said...

fuck perkins

NicJ said...

fuck rondo

NicJ said...

fuck allen

NicJ said...

fuck garnett

NicJ said...

fuck pierce

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

You left out Rivers.

Fuck Rivers.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

The Lakers should hire seat-fillers for playoff games, like the awards shows. Hell, I'd volunteer.

NicJ said...

they should bus in fans from the inner cites.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Does Mike Breen sound more mechanical than usual, or is that just me?

NicJ said...

ominous beginning.

NicJ said...

fuck, ray allen can only shoot on the road i guess.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was a goaltend on Garnett.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Bynum's gotta do a better job chasing the rebound there.

NicJ said...

make the free ones please.

NicJ said...

two on fish, a reserve has to step up.

NicJ said...

Shannon Brown is still on the team?

NicJ said...

uh oh, break out the wheelchair.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I normally don't like booing injured players, but for the Celtics, I'll make an exception.

Mr. Customer said...

Good thing there's a basketball game on to mitigate the rain delay...

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Pressures on Big Baby and Wallace to produce.

NicJ said...

alright now hit sheed in the back.

Mr. Customer said...

Brian Scalabrini has found a way to contribute, at least.

NicJ said...

that was a really late whistle on that loose ball foul.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Really? Paul Pierce grew up a Laker fan? I had no clue.

karina said...

Go Lakers!

If I dream that I'm desperate to know the score of the team I don't follow, it's fair to root for them, right?

I'd love to read your comments of triumph.

Back to drawing...

NicJ said...

thanks, Karina!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Shannon has got to stop helping out on defense. He's leaving his guys wide open.

NicJ said...

namely Ray Allen. He cant play that Kobe style defense unless he too is going to drop 30 points tonight.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Other than Shannon's poor awareness, this was a pretty damn good first quarter.

NicJ said...

Perk's getting Xrays, thats usually not a great sign.

Fred's Brim said...

just gotta win tonight, game 7 will be in the bank

NicJ said...

Isnt it a little ironic that the clippers blake griffin commercial uses the tag line "You aint seen nothing yet"

NO shit, he didnt play at all.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

No Perkins means more work for Wallace and Baby, and I doubt they can handle that much.

NicJ said...

wallace's conditioning has been at the very least questionable.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I don't think Wallace can make it to the end of the game without picking up his last tech.

NicJ said...

haha thats three on wallace. whos next at the 5?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Case in point.

NicJ said...

HUSTLE

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Farmar playing like his career depends on it, which it does.

NicJ said...

kobe out, hopefully offense leave with him.

Fred's Brim said...

can we just fast forward to thursday night?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Now this is Laker basketball.

NicJ said...

can we just play game 7 directly after game 6?

Mr. Customer said...

The delay on the broadcast is creepy. My streaming score updates before I see it actually happen.

NicJ said...

Let me know who wins then, Mr. C.

NicJ said...

fuck you dane cook.

Fred's Brim said...

fuck
ing
hell

Dane
fucking
Cook

Go Lakers

NicJ said...

ron ron seems alot more effective when he is actually trying to grab boards.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I hate Dame Cook.

NicJ said...

MACHINE 2.0!!!!

NicJ said...

THROW IT DOWN FARMAR!!!!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

THE BENCH MOB IS BACK, BITCHES

Fred's Brim said...

was that Toby Bailey?

NicJ said...

phil is even on his game, a TO after just one bad defensive possession.

NicJ said...

hey josh powell plays still?
i thought he just gave out hugs.

Fred's Brim said...

Phil says this game is over, inserts Powell

NicJ said...

that was a weak ass foul call

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Talk about a delayed call.

Fred's Brim said...

Doc says this game is over, inserts Shelden Williams

NicJ said...

man we are not getting the benefit of any out of bounds calls.

NicJ said...

gotta close out half strong.

NicJ said...

bs foul call.

NicJ said...

haha, alright sasha.

NicJ said...

i hate it when people let the opposing team roll the ball out past half court.

make them pick up the damn ball

Fred's Brim said...

*switches over to Grandma's Boy*

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

We're now in that strange purgatory where there's nothing on TV.

NicJ said...

im catching up on at game tweets.

NicJ said...

these are some BS fouls getting called on fish.

Is Doc going to call his team floppers now?

NicJ said...

great, now bynums going to back.

NicJ said...

lakers need to wake the fuck up. Celtics getting layups, just not making them.

NicJ said...

nobody on the lakers moving without the ball now. This is when kobe tries to take over.

NicJ said...

BROWN!!

NicJ said...

defense totally gone now.

NicJ said...

eh, not really a great start to the Q, but at the very least they just killed 6 minutes.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

There could be worse ways to start the second half (cough, Game 4 of 2008, cough).

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

I'd hardly call it the same as the NBA when only two women have ever completed a dunk.

NicJ said...

ugh dont even mention that.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Let Shannon dunk.

NicJ said...

why is KG being left open for the elbow jumper?

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Oh I am getting so sick of these rapping hamsters.

NicJ said...

oh rondo is hurt now too.

Boo-Fuckin-Hoo

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

If the ref called Rasheed for a foul on Farmar's layup, I think he'd have run up the stairs in a mad dash and punch a fan.

NicJ said...

haha, sheed hustles more on his post foul lap around the court than he does running the floor.

NicJ said...

kobe likes what he is seeing. I concur.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Dodger game has started again.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

That was one of those times when I hate how the Lakers take the ball across mid-court so slowly.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Wow, Rasheed did nothing after that foul.

NicJ said...

now the lakers have one quarter to try to get a tek on sheed.

NicJ said...

those mid inning commercials are really annoying on gameday.

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Nate gets the bench on the board.

NicJ said...

lakers are running their run out the clock offense. which always lets the other team close the gap.

NicJ said...

why are the starters still in?

Mr. Customer said...

Lucky 7, here we come!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

GAME 7 BABY

NicJ said...

one more.

lets do this.

Neeebs said...

Whoot. Had to get that in.
