One of the subplots that came out of the Detroit game is the Celtics lack of a backup point guard. I think a lot of people have this same feeling: Eddie House is doing a great job as a shooter off the bench, but he's not a point guard. Detroit pulled the old run-and-jump defense… and he didn't respond well.
Ex-Celtics point guard Gary Payton watched on television from his Las Vegas home Wednesday night as his former team lost to the Pistons. And once Chauncey Billups hit the winning free throws with a tenth of a second remaining, Payton called his agent.
