celtics vs. superstars
posted at 4/20/2011 1:36 AM EDT
celtics are 8-1 when an opposition player scores 32+
1. this is a very good effort by our defense, to allow only 9 such games all season.
2. clearly our team knows what to do in these situations: dare one player to beat us, and then double them to force their ice-cold teammates to shoot in the closing minutes.
3. this worked in the playoffs last year against miami, cleveland, orlando and even the lakers (we lost because of rebounding, not defense), and is a good sign for this postseason.
