What? Did he get shot?

Watch out for Ray Allen though, he will be shooting a little more in Pierce's absence.

Yep, i'm definitely looking for Ray to take on more of the scoring load. He'll need to get at least 25 to make up for the absence of Pierce.

I was just watching that Red Claws game on NBA TV. The arena was packed. There must have been around a 1000 people!

That's like half of Maine. Maybe 3/4.

I'm going to hit up quite a few games in the near future... Nice to know there's a good crowd. There was about 3,600 at the first game I went too.

He is faking it.

Will have a dramatic X-Mas intro in the second half against the Magic.

That's cool. I am glad that the NBA is putting D-league teams in areas that the NBA has never been before. That was a very savy move by Mr.Stern if I might say so myself.

I don't think Ray should get that much FG attempts. That's not a wise idea, unless Ray starts getting hot. Garnett should get some and I think Perkins especially should get more touches.

I agree that Garnett and Perkins have to do more, but with Howard guarding Perkins, i just don't think he'll have the opportunity. If Ray was out, i would expect Pierce to pick up the slack and go for 30. Ray has been a great scorer all throughout his career. I think he's capable of getting 25-30 points in the absense of Pierce. Neither Tony Allen nor Bill Walker are great scorers. If Ray isn't providing that extra punch, i have no idea where the extra offense is going to come from.

I'm sure Ray can get 25-30 points; I don't doubt his abilities. I think the best chance to win the game is to give the big men more touches. If Perkins get more touches, that means more chances that Dwight Howard will foul Perkins. Once Dwight will be in foul trouble, then it opens up more high percentage shot opportunities for Ray.

This really hurts us, short term, and long term. Not having Pierce is going to kill us. I hope Tony Allen plays like he has been the past week. We're about to see a lot of SCAL from now on and thats never good except for an energy boost for a second.

This 2 week stretch, if we struggle, might prove costly as it will make our chances at HCA even more difficult.

GET WELL SOON CAPTAIN!!!!

Sometimes Celtic fans underrating Perk and KG scoring abilities too.
But yea, Ray and Rondo scare to drive when Dwight is in the lane.
