Big, big game tonight. I'm stoked. I already emailed the guys - demanded that they open the Game Thread at 10 A.M. sharp. As I await their response, let's click on some links, shall we?

The Sixers don't know it's a damn show! They think it's a damn fight!
ESPN Boston: The Truth hurts
This series needs more ‘truth' word play. Not nearly enough for my tastes.
Boston Globe: No support for Pierce
Comment from Boston.com reader, billcus1:
Iguodala is killing you, Pierce! C'mon superstar, stop putting on your show and play some tough ball - your team needs you to step up. We would even take your "crybaby to the stripe" act right now.
Preach it, billcus1. Preach it.
Philly Burbs (Tom Moore): Sixers not just getting close anymore
Good read from Tom here. The Sixers are 4-1 in games decided by seven points or less this postseason. Even a broken clock is right two times a day? Or four times? Or maybe five times after tonight?
Philly Burbs (Ron Burke): Collins is like a driver's ed teacher
Sure, Doug Collins can teach Nikola Vucevic how to parallel park, but he doesn't have the body definition of Mr. Tuttle.
The Point Forward (Zach Lowe): Garnett's offensive foul
Self-explanatory. Really good stuff here on the waning moments of Game 2.

Philly Sports History: A timeline of Sixers vs. Celtics Rivalry
Monday was the Sixers first playoff win in Boston since 1982. That last win came in Game 7 of the 1982 Eastern Conference Finals, where Andrew Toney, "The Boston Strangler," blew up for 34. Charles Barkley has said that Toney was the best player he ever played with, but that's only because he didn't appreciate the nuances of Matt Maloney's game.
