Bulls or 76ers?

RedsArmyAdmin April 14, 2009 Uncategorized 7 Comments

The Celtics (60-20) play the 76ers (40-40) tonight in a game that will directly affect who will be their first round playoff opponent. Detroit locked up the 8th seed last night and will face the Cavaliers who clinched home court.

The C's are 3-0 against Philly, 2-1 and Chicago. The Sixers have lost 5 straight, the Bulls have won 5 straight. The Bulls are the bigger and deeper team. With that said, the Celtics will likely beat the Bulls in 5 and the 76ers in 4.

KG is out for the final two and we might see Leon and/or Scal in either game. And there's a good chance Doc will rest some of the starters.

The NBA is reviewing the Ray Allen – Anderson Varajeo incident from Sunday. There's a chance Ray gets suspended one game for the elbow. Big deal.

Mike Fine of the Patriot Ledger says KG's knee injury reminds him of Larry Bird's back problems in 1991. I think it's a big stretch but worth reading for the nostalgia.

The Globe is dreams up a scenario in which the Celtics, Bruins, Red Sox and Patriots all win titles this year. I know – not such an original idea. But check out the pics of Pierce in a Bruins sweater and Chara in a Celtics jersey.

A good morning greeting from the Sixers dancers…after the jump.

    It is. We are aware of that. And while we’re not at liberty to discuss anything beyond that… I will say that we’re going to move forward pretty much like we said we would yesterday.

    I’m hoping the Celtics can win this one, so the Bulls will play the Magic on in the first round if they win tomorrow.
