So I believe that every Laker fan has a Celtics Jersey in the back of their closet for the once a year visit from the Celtics. Last night was ridiculous. We had no less than twenty Celtics fans in our section and if there is anything worse than a Lakers fan(almost impossible), it is a loud, drunk Boston fan.
Suck it Celtics fans. As the Jazz hit the and one with about six minutes left I starting screaming "It's over" (ala Vince Carter Dunk Contest in the 2000 dunk Contest) very loud at the Celtics fans sitting in front of us and behind us".
I'm not fully on the C.J. Miles bandwagon, but he was one of the biggest reasons we won last night. Cj Miles had 23 points on 16 shots and 5-6 from the line and hit some huge shots when the Jazz needed some points. Even more importantly he held Pierce to 11 points and no baskets after the first quarter.

C.J. I love you, until you shoot 3-14. I hope you have learned that when you attack the rim you get free throws and the defense guards the drive allowing you to hit the long ball. I hope you learn a lesson from last night and keep up the aggressiveness.
Mehmet Okur probably had one of the best 6 minute stretches of his career putting up 11 points, 7 rebounds and 2 blocks in the amazing 3rd quarter. Memo finished with 14-15 and a couple of huge timeout chest bumps that made the Cavs look like amateurs.
Rondo is overrated and would not be anything if he played in the Western conference and had to play D-Will, Paul, Nash, Kidd, Ellis/Curry, Miller, Evans, Parker, Flynn, Billups every night. Rose eats his lunch every time they play as well, just some thoughts.

Doc Rivers you sly dog, egging on the refs. In the post game he said that he didn't even cuss cause you know it is Utah and all. Whatever he said got a T which led to this- and this got Doc kicked out of the game.
It was quite humorous after this the ref walked to the other side of the court and Doc Rivers openly mocked him and kept clapping in his direction.
Glen "Big Baby" Davis is really a baby.

Overall, this was a huge win, Obviously. I really didn't think we were going to win last night, even when we cut it to five just before the half. I'm not convinced that CJ can do this every night, nor do we need him to, but I am glad that he recognizes when the Alphamales--- Deron and Boozer are struggling.
We should sweep the rest of the week.
We got some help from NO and SA last night as they beat Dallas and OKC. It is that time of season when we should start to scoreboard watch. Add the Knicks to that list as well.
PLAY of the night #4 Boozer getting a little Defensive about Ray Allen's actions.
