[QUOTE]look, i understand ppl are dissapointed we have lost two in a row, but lets put this in perspective. this wasnt the Wizards and Bobcats we just played back to back. we just lost close games against two of the best teams in the NBA! how upset can you REALLY be..earlier in the season we were getting embarrassed by teams like this..we are growing..it appears that we are getting what we want, AB will start. Ray allen had 15 off the bench tonite in his first bench appearance, Pietrus is coming back, WE ARE OKAY!

Jamez, the Celtics are now the team nobody wants to faceoff against in the playoffs. We're are not favorites by any stretch of the imagination. We're spoilers. We've got two big holes, only one of which is minimized in the playoffs. 1. no big man in the middle who can grab boards. 2. No depth.
Shortened rotations in the playoffs help our deficiency with #2, but that bigman who can board and clog the middle is not there.
We can make a run come playoff time, but the playoffs means 4 series and some of the games this year are back to back.
Not having that bigman has got big potential to bite us badly.
If there has been any drum that posters have been ban*ing (can you believe that word gets blocked?!) all season that's 100% true, it's that.
No big, no boards = big playoff headache at some point
If we could do something about that, I'd be 100% in agreement with you.
