Giddens, Walker Recalled

Jess Camerato reports:

In the midst of a three-game losing streak, the Boston Celtics have recalled rookies J.R. Giddens and Bill Walker from the NBDL’s Utah Flash. Giddens (17.3 points, 6.5 rebounds) and Walker (18.7 points, 5.3 rebounds) have been standouts on the Flash given the playing time to develop. Both players welcomed the assignment and have been preparing for their recall since October.

Interesting move.  Why now?  Could this move signal some rest for the weary starters?  Are we going to see if these guys can provide some answers for our bench?  Or is this a message to the current bench:  your jobs aren't safe?

    Play them! We have several young guys who have doe well because they’ve had a chance to play. BBD, powe, rondo, etc. We need *something*, so let’s see if giddens and walker can provide it.

    Funny thing!! I decided to look up Giddens and Walker’s stats before this was posted. I think we do need some spark and energy off the bench. Remember that dunk Walker had in the preseason? We need that kind of spark especially NOW! I agree with above post by thetitleisours – How many minutes will Doc play them? In my opinion I think Danny is going to give one last look at the rookies before considering picking up guys off waivers or trades. Get Sam I Am off the bench too – We need to fill the holes – Our starters need more help off the bench. How sweet will it be to bounce back tomorrow night vs. HGH Lebron, end their home court winning streak and we can get back on track.

    Sam’s there for Scal too. They play some one on one or something like that. I think Sam has some insight that might be valuable for Rondo and maybe some others, but he’s not a coach for the team…he’s a player (believe it or not). So you’re absolutely right, Dr. H, it’s not helping anybody but Sam…so get him in a uniform and on the court or get somebody in to replace him.

    I love how all the Laker fans use the excuse “You beat us a year ahead of schedule” Inferon, shut up, seriously, youre a joke. The Celtics don’t need Pierce to score 40 points, alright. They need to play something called “defense.” Have you ever heard of it? Probably not, seeing as how you’re a Lakers fan.
    Defense+ Rondo getting in the lane+ Balanced Scoring= Unbeatable Celtics team. Thats how they won on their winning streak; that’s how they’ll win the championship.

    I wonder if BBD and TA would/will get similar numbers with the Flash…..
