Celtics (27-10) vs Bulls (16-20)
Game time: 8pm, TD Garden. TV – TNT. RADIO – WEEI-AM (850).
Bos: Pierce – 18.4 Bulls: Derrick Rose – 18.6
Bos: Perkins – 8.2 Bulls: Joakim Noah – 12.2
Bos: Rondo – 9.7 Bulls: Rose – 6.0
Who'll go off: Rajon Rondo. I labeled this kid the Maestro after his 16 point, 14 assist, 7 rebound performance against Chicago last month. For whatever reason, he plays well against the Bulls and I expect it to continue tonight.
Who needs to be stopped: Joakim Noah. The Celtics depleted front line will have its hands full with Noah and the other Chicago big men.
The C's will lose if… they start slow. This will be the 4th game in 5 nights. I'm fearful that if the Celtics don't come out swinging in the first quarter, they won't have the energy to stage any comebacks.
Miscellaneous: The Celtics dominated both games with Chicago this season; a 118-90 thrashing in the home opener and a 106-80 victory on Dec. 12 in Chicago. The Bulls are 3-13 on the road this season. Eddie House is averaging 18.5 points against Chicago this season.
Prediction: Celtics 103 – Bulls 95
After the jump, some new pictures of Meghan Fox I came across on the web. What do they have to do with the Bulls/Celtics? Absolutely nothing.
