+1

i think the celtics will come out strong on Sunday.. and I won't be too surprise to see us go 0-2

1-1 is impressive to me

2-0 is not impossible, and will probably get us to top 10 in NBA power rankings!

key match-up is going to be Bosh vs Garnett.. and i still think that Garnett has the advantage because he is a good defender, and it will be hard for Bosh to get those foul calls against a hall-of-famer (i suspect a drop in Bosh's FT numbers)

Perkins vs Bargs is like an x-factor.. Perkins is a very good defender in the post.. Bargs must take advantage from perimeter

After a couple elbows from Voskhul he may very well get on all fours again and meow like a kitten. That's too funny man, your killing me.

Seriously though, i'm glad we have Voskuhl for a game like this because despite being on a slide, we know that even though the offense isn't quite working out, the defense isn't going so good, one thing that is constant is their mouths which never close. Voskuhl needs to give some good hard (but legal) fouls on KG and Perkins, that'll make my day.

As for the actual game, it still worries me. But i'm hoping the combination of us playing well lately + them not playing well is good enough to overcome having nobody to guard Pierce and Ray Allen.

LOL. Sometimes it sucks being right... oh well, hopefully we outscore them because perimeter D just is not gonna happen.

For me it's like, yeah you can ask players to step out of their comfort zone and produce in ways that aren't customary to their game or else you can get the type of players who typically do what you need them to do.

Pretty good game ..... i think having Jose coming back and playing only 22 minutes ruined the Chem, than leaving around half time, we made a huge run without him ......

Regardless since were playing well right now Jose should just sit out until he's 100% because having him not at 100% is only going to hurt us on the defensive end ......

I think this game had more to do with the biggest draft bust in NBA history. He is known as Andrea Bustnani. He shot 27% from the field absolutely brutal, he is the biggest chucker in the NBA. Get rid of this goofy looking Euro plz

It's ok guys, we're doing a good job of holding down the fort until we get Caron Butler and Corey Maggette.
