A lot of people are looking for something big to happen this afternoon.
LeBron's big break-out game… Ray Allen's big break-out game… something.
But its been 6 games now. So you can expect today to be more of the same: Pierce and LeBron knocking the crap out of one another… Ray Allen struggling to get his shot off… KG burying jumpers. All that stuff is going to be the same. The key to game 7 is the same as the key to the rest of this series: If Rajon Rondo, Kendrick Perkins, and the rest of our role player come out to play… the Celtics will win this going away. If they all struggle… then so will the Celtics… and we'll all be cursing, ranting messes until the final buzzer.
“I just told (Cassell) we were going in another direction,” Rivers said, “and to stay ready. Sam was perfect. He’s such a pro. He wants to win. If that means him playing tomorrow, if that means him sitting, he wants to do whatever it takes for the team to win.”
