Re: Eastern Conference Finals, Celtics v Pistons, Game 6, Friday
I expect Hamilton to be out there. If he's completely unable to shoot, you may see him sit early and the Pistons try and ride Stuckey but I expect him to be out there for 40+ minutes, because he's a tough player and this is a big game. But at the same time, if he comes into the paint...there will be a lot of plausible deniability, but someone is going to whack that shoulder, at least once, and probably all night long. One easy way to drive him nuts is just have Perk set screens on his right side all game long. I guarantee that gets Ray Allen some excellent looks. If Ray Allen is on, I'll be surprised if the Cs don't end this tonight. But if he's played the way he has for most of the playoffs, Garnett will have to continue to dominate, and Pierce will have to come with a 30 for the Cs to beat Detroit. And don't be shocked to see someone intentionally mix it up with Wallace.
