    KG had a great game.  And yes, we needed every one of Rondo's 11 rebounds to win the rebounding battle.  Though I'm not sure we should rely on Rondo getting that kind of rebounding performance on a nightly basis.

    It will be interesting to see how we respond tomorrow.  Hopefully Washington's athleticism won't be a factor.

    Rondo is the youngest out there and is quicker to the ball than JON & KG!  Once he has the ball he races to the front court and have to wait for the old legs to catch up!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: KG 24 pts; Celts 41 rebs. : By having a player that can score inside, like what KG did tonight, it opened up the defense. Rondo could drive an dish, Ray would get open, and Pierce gets open from 3-point land.

    Could very well be the other way around,  having PP back with RA it opened things up for both KG and RR.  Having two great 3 pt shooters on the floor opens up all sorts of lanes.

    No because two great outside shooter demand attention and it turns into a 3 on 3 game with practically the whole court to play with. You have plenty of room just like they had tonight.   We very seldom play inside out. We haven't had a low post presence in quite some time.  It would be great if we played inside out but we don't.  You have probably said at some time that KG lives on the outside.

    Naturally KG had a lot of points in the paint. After JON went down the only centers we had were KG & Stiemsma ... Steamer only played 12 mins the entire game while Bass was in there 31 mins and JON 23 that means 50% of KG's mins were at center.

    If there was ever a year for Rondo to try to average a triple-double, it's this year.  Experienced bigs know how to box out and position, but lack the quicks and hops to actually get the ball

    Rondo: 15-12-10


    would be cool to see him do what LeBron can't do now that Wade wears the pants.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: KG 24 pts; Celts 41 rebs. : Tonight KG had a lot of points in the paint. He converted on an and-one twice. KG went 6-6 from the FT line tonight, indicating he didn't settle for jump shots.  In the 1st half JO went 3-4 from the field, a dunk, a fade away from the low post, and a fade away in the paint. By doing that the defense is forced to collapse, opening up the outside shooters.  Ever since Doc has always asked KG to play inside. It's KG that refuses to do it.

    Exactly-  the lanes were open and he took advantage. ( a few times)  Funny how more good players you have on the floor the easier it is to take it to the hole and get open jumpers. KG still shot the ball 10 out of 17 from outside the paint, he had at least 3 layups (maybe more) given to him off nice Rondo passes. You really think 2 jumpers by JO open things up for us? I would imagine other teams scouting reports aren't geared to shutting down JO first then worrying about PP and RA. No one is saying its not better to go inside out its  just we don't have a inside presence. Haven't for long time.

    Dont fall in love with KGs game last night... it will be the exception, not the rule, this season.  Just like last season. Ditto JON

    This team needs 12 minutes a game from KG at Center and 16 mins a PF. Jsut b/c he is playing C tho doesn't mean he will be bruising in the paint. Over the last 2-3 years wouldn't you ahve called Baby the PF and KG the Center? They played a lot of mins together, similar to KG/Bass right now, Bass plays inside more.

    KG shouldn't play over 30 mins a game, and it looks like Stiemsma is a better option for 12 mins a game than Wilcox.

    Let's see?  KG shows up once every 5 games.  That's about 13 times a season!  We should all be jumping for joy.

    He is not getting fouled and his PPS is 1.155  =  Antoine Walker.  Almost a shot a point!  Anyone ask how many points his man got while he was playing Center?  OOPS!

    KG stands 17 ft. from the basket, when he is the tallest guy on the team.  Now that makes a lot of sense.

    He is the big bad guy, according to his mouth, and Rondo makes him look like a cupcake.

    There should be a new show.  "The Golden Boys".  KG would be a STAR.

    Are they won with defense as well?

    Oh, yes, that's how Dallas beat Miami.......in the paint!  That's also how Miami beat Chicago last year, right - in the paint?

    Seriously, every series is different.  Lakers killed us in the paint in 2009 after we did it to them in 2008.  So, its very important in some series.  But, in other series, its all about defense and offensive efficiency.  

    In reality, its all about matchups and every series is different.  There's no one KEY thing that always wins championships.

    Your exactly right IMO.  Every game and season stuff that nevered happened before happens.  Defense win championships?  Someone should tell the Pats and Packers that.  First time in history a team with the worst defense made the playoffs.  Guess what the Packers were the second worst. Of course they both could lose the next game.

    We beat the Wizards last night. Still great to see our guys put up some nice stats. It was the Wizards though.

    That said tonight being a back to back we will stay face a challenge.

    Agreed on C/PF mins but KG's play at center will depend upon the opponent. He can be very effective against teams sporting centers in his own mold with less experience.

    Baby wanted to play more PF and shoot more from the perimeter while the C's preferred him to play more in the paint to clog the lane. He knew he had to have better offensive numbers to get a bigger contract and that was the source of his conflict.

    Bass clearly has the better game in the low post offensively due to his athleticism and ability to finish at the rim vs Baby who led the league in having his shot blocked. While it seems Bass is more suited for the center spot than Baby the reality is Bass is a much better shooter from the perimeter than Baby ever was or will be hence he's an effective replacement for KG there.

    It remains to be seen how good Wilcox is or will be since we haven't gotten much of a look at him at center. If Wilcox is as good as advertised then he will get more of JON's minutes at center.

    I'd still like a bruising center to take on the real bigs of the league and would rather have KG split the PF mins exclusively with Bass and center split between JON, Wilcox, Stiemsma and a Fesenko type.
