The Denver Nuggets conclude their road trip at the Garden tonight. They're coming off a 110-99 loss in Cleveland last night. Meanwhile, Doc Rivers called off yesterday's practice after only a half-hour. All those add up to one thing: a Celtics victory.
Scott Souza says Bill Walker and Patrick O'Bryant had to separated during a scrimmage yesterday:
In what has become almost predictable, Walker eventually raised the ire of a teammate or foe – in this case O’Bryant – and the two had to be separated. More specifically, Walker had to be held back from O’Bryant.
Since the beginning of training camp, Walker has had run ins with Kevin Garnett, Tracy MacGrady and nearly LeBron James. He’s a feisty guy. As usual, nothing much came of it and they continued with the scrimmage after a few seconds of drama. Walker may have gotten the last laugh in the scrimmage with a monster alley-oop slam from Cassell.
We all love Walker's intensity, but the dude might need to tone it down a bit.
Rajon Rondo's shooting is the subject of Frank Dell'Apa's column in the Globe:
In fact, Rondo is second on the Celtics in field goal percentage (.532) and second to last in free throw percentage (.543).
I haven't noticed much change in Rondo's outside shooting, yet he remains effective when driving into the lane. His most important stat: assists. Right now Rajon is averaging 6.7 per game, 10th in the league.
Speaking of stats, Paul Pierce is shooting 40% from 2s and 40% from 3s.
