This blog isn’t writing itself, so I’m just going to start typing. Three hours of interrupted sleep will do that to a man. Watching your son get circumcised doesn’t help much either. I’ll just empty my head.
The left side of my brain:
Nothing comes easy for this Celtics team and I don’t expect that to change tonight. Remember Game 6 against the Bulls? It was the perfect “finish-off-this-pesky-team-so-we-can-rest-for-next-series” game. Three overtimes later, the Celtics had a Game 7 staring them in the face.
The right side of my brain:
The Celtics are due for a good game. Way overdue. We’ve seen their A-game twice in the playoffs: Game 3 vs Chicago, Game 2 vs Orlando. What better time to put it all together. Orlando is crumbling. All the pressure is on them.
According to Superbook.com, the Celtics are 7 point underdogs. Not sure what that means. My gut tells me the Magic win Game 6. That should have most of you jumping for joy, as you all know my predictions are worthless.
True that. Dominant players dominate games. The Magic have players
who dominate the microphone. They blame each other for what went wrong.
Sure Howard only touched the ball twice in the fourth quarter, which
is ridiculous, but does he think that was Van Gundy’s idea? How about
demanding the ball? How about getting open? How about getting a rebound?
Sounds like Big Baby is enjoying his time in the spotlight. Here’s how he described his recent clutch play:
flow,” he said, snapping his fingers, gyrating his hips, and slowly
rolling his broad shoulders. “Everything’s going your way and you’re
not forcing anything, you’re playing hard, and you feel like
everything’s going your way.”
