In Response to Some things to look for tonight
[QUOTE]1.) the realistic possibility of JON coming back to earth and maybe not struggling, but he cant shoot 100% forever. Its imperative for his minutes to be monitered. Dont want to wear him out 2.) Im hoping Kristic can get more minutes against the Knicks. He has earned the right to play some, even if he doesnt have playoff experience. He is the only guy who can score inside and like to play inside. At the least he can make Amare work on defense and maybe get him in foul trouble. 3.) Green needs to be told his role, which is stop passing the ball and look for your shot whenever it is there. I like the way his one on one defense has been better though, but would like to see him be greedy. 4.) Get Ray invloved early. Landry is a non factor on offense, so he can use all his energy to chase Ray. Set some solid double screens early and get him going, he makes our offense flow easily when he is involved. No fga's in 1st quarter last game. 5.) Force the K.G./ Turiaf matchup. Spread the floor, dump it in to the Big Ticket and tell him to go right up over the top on the catch! 6.)Can we possibly see a little of Wafer? I mean we got our old throw away players like Walker making us look bad, if there is a series you can play ur bench , its this one. let em shine..he can help. 7.) More Iso's for P.Pierce. Make Melo play defense all game. He is playing agressive on Pierce and the refs have to call something if you stay with it. 8.) Tell Rondo to attack, attack, attack the Basket. Turiaf is a JOKE as a center, and Amare doesnt want to foul out...Make them Pay! Oh, and a good , convincing W

Good one, Mr. Shizzle.
All solid points and on #8 I'd like to add that besides attacking the basket, Rondo & Delonte, whoever is playing point at the time, should be pushing the ball relentlessly at the Knicks to wear them down and to get easy buckets.
Not to sound like a broken record, but pushing the ball up relentlessly, even off made hoops, will, to a large extent, negate the stratedgy of sagging off Rondo in the half-court set.
Game one was a thrilling victory, but the C's got to play better tonight.http://rajonrondowski.blogspot.com/
