Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three Getty Images

If you haven’t noticed this post season, whenever a Celtics player makes a big play on the floor the bench gets up and celebrates by flexing.

You’ll see it a little tonight in a key Game 5. If you see a lot of it the Pacers are in trouble.

    The refs are doing their part…cheating for the home team and calling tons of fouls on the Sixers. 11-5 disadvantage in fouls for Philly so far.

      Losers excuse.

        Not my team at all. Tracked the fouls called…the refs gave the Celtics a 10-foul advantage before reeling it back in to 6 at the end, once the outcome was no longer in doubt.

        Bozo, the 6ers are not your team but you are a Celtics hater, you live for it, And they didn’t reel nothing back in. The game was out of doubt which had Boston’s end of the bench guys in against Philly’s ballers who can’t defend without fouling

      Through five games, foul totals are 103 called on Boston and 91 called on Philadelphia. So much for the usual one-note spew from “Flamey the Clown.”

        Not to mention the Sixers 36 to 19 FT advantage in game 4 or the Lakers 42-28 advantage in Game 3. Two more prime examples of the refs doing their part…cheating for the home team.

        Merely comparing totals is yet another sign that you are clueless as to the ebb and flow of an NBA game. Timing is much more crucial and in that regard, the refs have continually affected the game with their biased treatment in favor of the Celtics.

    This about the 3rd article where Kurt has said the 76ers where the Pacers. Does he really not know or….

    Isn’t that “flexing” just one of the signals for a foul in the act of shooting, and the celtics do the motion on and ones?

    I don’t get it. Flexing for what?
