How can I prepare for the game without knowing the average height and weight of the opponent? Please correct in future. ;)

On the serious side, good job.

Does anyone remember what it feels like to win a first quarter?  I know I don't.  If we do that against this team coming into Boston on the back end of a back to back we have the chance to win easy.  Although probably not as easy as last year's home game against Denver was...
"Take this down," said O'Neal. "My name is Shaquille O'Neal and Paul Pierce is the (expletive) truth. Quote me on that and don't take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didn't know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is the truth."

Hey nice preview as always Fl, but it's Kenyon Martin, not Kevin Martin that plays for the nuggets.

  • Rondo doesn't believe in easy buckets...
After watching Carmelo play last night I can't believe people think he's really better than Pierce.

I say we win this by a lot, unless Rondo lets Billups dominate him.

Duh!  I knew that and the funny thing is that as I was doing this game thread I was watching KMart get his second T and get tossed in the Cavs game.  Two mistakes in one thread... I need a vacation LOL

I think we match up better at every position except point.  Billups can eat Rondo alive, and Rondo's already banged up.

Anyone know if Kenyon Martin's suspended for the game?  Can't find anything on it, but I'm pretty sure he got a Flagrant 2 against Cleveland - isn't that an automatic 1-gamer?

He definitely got a flagrant 2 in the final minute of his last game... It doesn't mention suspension in the denver post or celtics.com preview i was wondering the same thing. I don't know.

His wrist looked okay two after those beastly dunks. We'll see in a bit

The man shook his head. "O.J. doesn't give out his cell," he said. "He'll call you."

Too many Tos by the Celtics. Like how Ray is playing and Rondo's steal off Billups was a beaut.
