I'm looking for the few rays of light to help us through this skid. That's Von Wafer gettng stuffed by the rim early last night. Everyone laugh and drink in that good mojo. Don't panic. Just keep this in mind: There are 6 FULL months of basketball to be played before the Finals even begin. We've only played 2 full months.
But it's hard. It's hard when Shank Shaughnessy comes out of the woodwork. What is he saying in that column anyway? Anything?
At times like this, you can do nothing else but keep looking forward.
"We’re going to get their best punch," Celtics captain Paul Pierce said of the Cavaliers. "We got a chance to play them in our home opener. When you play in a game like this, teams like us want to try to find the edge because we know somewhere down the road we’re going to see them in the playoffs… The way we are playing, this is a great way to get back on track.”
"I really don't care who we play," said Allen. "I look at it as an opportunity for this team to get back on track."
