I'll blame the Red Sox for injecting a dose of deliriousness into the Boston fanbase. Yes, all of the reserves played well, especially Tony Allen, in last night's win over New Jersey. But when I read a comment (from a respected reader I might add) suggesting TA play with the first stringers and Ray Allen be moved to the bench….I nearly lost my mind. Don't get sucked in!!! This is what Tony does to us. He gets us all worked up and then churns out consecutive 7 TO games…or falls for an up-fake with .3 seconds left in a big game. The Celtics are a great team with a solid bench, it's ok to be cocky, but lets not go crazy.
Speaking of the bench, the Herald's Steve Bulpett writes that Darius Miles might just be the odd man out of the Celtics rotation.
Word is Miles needs to show he is worthy of being a key contributor – not just the 15th best player – to make the squad. Miles scored one point last night.
I've said it before and I will say it again. It's a crime if Scalabrine makes the team over Miles. Please Danny, just own up to your mistake.
