Here's the recipe for a Boston Teabag Party:

First team to 85 wins.

The Cavs will need 65 points from the starters to get it done... with LeBron needing about 25-30 & Z @least 14.

Fewer than 12 turnovers and no fluke absences like Ben in gm2 & Delonte in gm4.

Stir well, and bake for 48 mins @72 degrees in the Gahden.

Serving size: 1 game.

Here's hoping the Cavs steal one in beantown tonight. Hopefully, leBron remembers how to score tonight. Detroit is already in the conference finals and we know we can beat them. GO CAVS !!!

He has still scored 20pts a game in this series. What is wrong with that? Yes he is not scoring 30 or 40, but we are tied 2-2 with him not playing near his best!! Sounds like advantage Cavs to me!!

There isn't much to say at this point. Everyone knows what has to happen (except for Scott from Atlanta who is a hillbilly).

The two possibilities I think are....

1) The Celtics big 3 are gassed. They played almost all of the the first three quarters and basically couldn't play in the 4th. As a result, they can't switch quickly enough. West, Gibson, Pavlovic, and Szczerbiak combine for 45 points mostly on open 3s and Z puts in 20 on the inside. Same strategy as Game 1, but with the Celtics a step slower.

2) Cavs put in a mediocre game, down by 8 after three quarters, and Lebron goes nuts and scores 29 of the team's last 30 points to put them over the top.

If that sounds familiar...

Well gel they have and as Joe Tait stated before the end of Monday Night's game ....this could be pulled off!!!!
Personally I feel the Cavs have to stay loose and not get geared for meditating a Browns-Steelers game but stay loose.
The accomplishments of Saturday & Monday create a sense of confidence yet it wouldn't be wise for any out of character strain on this game alone.Ill affordable to put all the eggs in one basket or for tonight alone is my only caution.
Hey this is a three game series and I think saying that alone that the Cavaliers are gaming on a talented bunch of people whom have yet to peak.
Good signs for the next round s h o u l d they succeed.
Good Luck,Cavs !!!!

And you come out and say this after we won 2 in a row? And why is it Cleveland choking when Boston is the #1 seed? Please explain that to me in your backwoods, incest, PA terms!!

So far a home-home 2-2. If LeBron scores 40 tonight, we win, if he scores 21, we lose. I don't want to lose.

Lebron does not need to score 40 for the Cavs to win. If he scores 25 to 30 with 10+ assists the Cavs will win. 10+ assists means his teammates are knocking down their open looks. Cavs will keep this game close and win it in the last 5 minutes. The Cavs are playoff tested, they have won 7 road playoff games in the last two years. They are the more poised confident team in a tight game. The Celtics are great when playing with a comfortable lead. But in close games in this years playoffs they have choked in the 4th quarter (3 road losses to ATl, and game 4 in Cle).

The big three of the Celtics have been renamed to the:'Big Two featuring Ray Allen'

The Cavs wiil continue to loose big games until they start to play at the level of the teams the are plying. Game five if you come int he paint of Celtics you were hammer---no free shots in the paint. The Cavs stand and watch them lay it up! PUT SOMEONE ON THE DECK OR GO HOME.
