    Tough Game Tonight

    Tonight, if I got it right, we'll have only 8 players suited up and none of them will be a center.  BBD will have to play center with no backup (or KG plays center).   Tought place to be short of players with the thin air and a team that likes to run.

    The strength of the Celtics is still in place (Rondo, Ray, KG, PP and 6th man BBD), but the question is whether there is still a lead in place when they come back in after being subbed out for a rest?  Why care?  Because we're still in a race for home court advantage and Miami is in a virtual tie with us at this point. 

    Denver likely plays with all of their new players tonight.  

    Celtics win or will all of the distractions + too few players hurt us too much?

     Another chance for Avery to show he can play. I hope West is better than he was last game!!   Looks like big minutes for Baby.  Ray better give them his "Those guys don't belong on the same floor with us" speech tonight for sure!!

    I hope we don't pick up any dumb fouls.  Foul trouble could kill us tonight. I guess we will see if Avery has improved as much as quite a few said after his two minutes of play the other nite.

    I like the Celts tonight. Your gonna see how true Vets handle these business transactions. You lose friends, but you understand why. I think the Vets rally the squad and come up with a W. Watch out for Wafer tonight. I like him having a big game.

         A give up game.  Barely ahead of Miami & Ainge just throws this game on the dumper!

    I'm betting the starters will play great in the beginning and they'll build a lead.  Then, we will get tired and the few subs won't help us.  By the end of the game, the jumpers won't be falling but experience and defense will help us squeak by.

    I would not be suprised if we are a bit uninspired tonight.  KG help

    Re: Tough Game Tonight

    Just saw Doc's interview with Cheryl Miller.  He was clearly flabergasted.  He had no real answers and I suspect that's how the team feels right now.   It will be a tough game.   None of us can be surprised at a loss.

    And the Nugs will play their 'A' game because they're so happy 'Melo's gone?

    Let's take a look...Perk was out, Semih hasn't been giving them much lately, Nate's shooting has been somewhere South of mediocre and Quis was out for the year. Yup, sure going to miss them tonight.

    The Nuggets, on the other hand, will not have their most dominant and dynamic player and will be playing with a PG who has a week with the team.
    Might be sloppy, maybe even ugly...but the C's will still have their veteran toughness and better overall team on the court. Celtics win ugly, but win.

    Re: Tough Game Tonight

    Markes, the issue isn't who'll miss who.  The issue is who will get tired in the think air of Denver when they have no subs.  We have 3 subs and one of them is Avery Bradley.  So, we cannot even take BBD, Ray, PP, and KG off the floor at the same time because there are only 4 players left.

    That's the issue.  Our starters will play well until and unless they get gassed from having to play so many minutes in the thin air of Denver.

    Actually I think we have 4 subs,  Chris Johnson.  I have a gut feeling Avery will play well tonight.  I have been hard on the youngster, so I hope he makes me look bad.

    Really?   WHo's Chris Johnson?   Doc said he had 8 players when he did the interview earlier.  Did we somehow get a player late?   That would be good news.

    I read somewhere where we signed him to a ten day contract.  I thought he was suppose to be in Denver.  Played for Iowa in the D league.  Thread was started on him, has some good stats.

    Cfan, maybe I am wrong. I thought he was suppose to be there tonight.  Maybe it was wishful thinking.

    Who cares?  They have aboout a third of the season left and have to integrate two players that are better than the two that left.  It will provide a challenge but should not impede their progress toward a title.

    They added someone who will be their best player off the bench and added a center who will be a better offensive player but not quite the defensive a hole non offensive player who cannot shoot particpate in the offense face up or back down or make shots or make free throws or have hands of stone or dribble the ball off his foot or scowl for no reason but continue to be a T for no reason other than thinking he is better than he is.... wish we could get some more of those types of players or just give me........'

    Noah, either Gasol, either Lopez, Kaman, Jordan, Horford, Howard, Chandler, etc...

    So far in the game, I like what Chris Johnson is giving us.  Two shots blocked, hustle - running on a fast break for the layup.   Young legs.  Good kid.

    We have 9 players but the foul trouble is concerning.
