Can you guess who screamed those words in the headline during the 3rd quarter of last night's loss to the Knicks?

It was KG, according to the Herald's Steve Bulpett, who issued the directive after the Celts took a six point lead. But KG's words fell on deaf ears. Like I stated in last night's post game blog, the C's could not maintain their defensive intensity. Even with the regulars on the court. Here's Doc's take:

“A lot of good things,” Rivers said, referring to the work of his
reserves. “A lot of bad things. (The Knicks) scored too many points.
We’re going to score, (but) we don’t like giving up that many points.”

Prior to last night's lapse, the Celtics had been the top defensive team (statistically – according to Mike Gorman) in the preseason. So I'm not going to get worked up about one preseason game.

On the injury front, Brian Scalabrine rolled his ankle after stepping on a cameraman. He's back in Boston having X-rays. Mike Sweetney is also back home, he has flu-like symptoms.

Rondo and Perk are the only starters expected to play tonight in Cleveland.

    “Mike Sweetney is also back home, he has flu-like symptoms.” Thats just a cover up he’s having withdrawls from pizza & cup cakes.
    Are the C’s siting the Starters for rest or because they don’t want to show Cleveland much? I don’t think its the latter but you never know?
