Glen Davis is one goofy bastard. Guys like him help keep a team loose. But after watching his emotional outburst last night, you also have to say – he takes this game seriously.
I'm not going to get on his case for letting some tears flow after KG ripped apart the entire second unit for letting Portland back into the game in 4th quarter. Davis will learn from this. How can he not with Garnett as a teammate?
"I'll probably get real deep with him," Garnett said. "Try to understand what he's going through right now, research the problem. But Baby is frustrated a little bit with some of what we are doing. He just has to understand his role and not come outside of it."
In other news, Tony Allen is doubtful for Sunday's game in Indiana. A peek at the upcoming schedule reveals the PoZ and the Hornets visit Boston on Fri, Dec 12 (James will get his ring that night) and Utah is here on Mon, Dec 15. Two wins should cement our status as the best team in the league.
FWIW: Rondo is averaging 14.1 points and 8.8 assists in the Celtics' last 10 games.
