I'd like to see the C's go after Rashard Lewis on two fronts, defending him with Garnett (Pierce could be ok but I bet Garnett could completely shut him down) and attacking him on offense no matter who he's guarding, even if it's Perk. Go after Lewis and if Pierce and/or Ray Allen have/has a good game, Cs can win this one. And it wouldn't bother me to see Perk foul out vs. Howard.
Dwight and Garnett will combine for 40+ rebounds!!! Celtics meets one tough threat to their undefeated streak... if Orlando wants to win this one... they have to do it defensively... Dwight vs KG/Bogans vs Ray Ray is okay... but Shard/Turkoglu will get a tough time covering PP...
Perk could give Howard a lot of trouble cuz he's physical and strong...Howard for all his upper body strength is weak down low (legs hips etc) he's shaped like a model. Perk's cut up but he still bigger down low if he keeps his body on Howard and gets him outta the lane he could control him like Rasho does.
Yeah and KG on Rashard will **** wit his head..Pierce on Hedo I think they play Shard at PF anyway so that's the natural math up in the starting lineups
I think if the C's can get Dwight Howard into foul trouble early, they got this game in the bag. Ray Allen will have to make his open shots and also try to get to the rim because he is the teams best foul shooter. I think the Celtics will win this game by 8.
I am not gonna make a prediction, but this game will be a good test for both teams. I believe this is the highest quality team that the Celtics will have played this season, so it should be a nice barometer of how they are doing. With the veteran experience they have, I would expect them to be "up" for the game.
I wish you guys would PM links like that. Putting them out in the open is how they get shut down. Especially that atdhe site, it looks like it's about five minutes from getting canned every time I go there.
