Celtics/Nets Game Preview

Chuck - Red's Army February 5, 2010 Uncategorized 10 Comments on Celtics/Nets Game Preview


Celtics (31-16) vs Nets (4-44)

Game time: 7:30pm, TD Garden. TV – CSN. Radio – WEEI-AM (850).

Team Leaders

Bos: Pierce – 18.9                  Nets: Brook Lopez – 18.9

Bos: Perkins – 8.3                  Nets: Lopez – 9.2

Bos: Rondo – 9.8                    Nets: Devin Harris – 6.2

Who'll go off:  Rajon Rondo. Is there a player on the Nets roster who can prevent him from getting to the rim? And once Brook Lopez comes over to help, the dimes to Perk and KG will start accumulating.

Who needs to be stopped:  Brook Lopez is averaging 20.5 ppg and 8.5 rpg in two games vs Boston this season. Fortunately, the Celtics have enough big bodies should Perk succumb to foul trouble. While Devin Harris has underachieved terribly this year, he has played well his last two games (19.5 ppg, 11 apg).

The C's will lose if…   Bill Walker, Brian Scalabrine, Eddie House and Shelden Williams start and play 40 minutes. Seriously, there's really no way the Celtics can lose this game, even with Paul Pierce wearing a suit. 

Miscellaneous:  The Celtics are 2-0 against New Jersey this season, and led 71-35 at halftime of
the last meeting – a 111-87 win Jan. 13 in which no Celtics player logged 30
minutes.The Nets lost their fourth in a row Wednesday, 108-99 at Toronto. Keyon Dooling (sore hip flexor) is questionable.

Prediction:  Celtics 99 – Nets 77 

Happy Friday everyone. Let's celebrate with random pictures of Victoria Secret supermodel Miranda Kerr…

    Can’t it be Friday more often?

  • Holy Moly Miranda! Are those pics in honor of the news clip? (skip to 1:04 and check out the dude in the back doing the same thing we are)
    Hopefully we’ll see the the 2nd unit put up big minutes in this one, get House some looks and keep his shot going.

    Prediction: Devon Harris gets traded to the Lakers in the offseason. Fisher is on his way down, and they have no one reliable on the bench. And since NJ will assuredly have top pick in the draft, and therefore draft John Wall, they’ll have no need for Harris.
    Not something I want to see happen, but it makes sense to me.


    Who would they trade for Harris? Odom? The Nets would want something decent in return and other than Odom there’s no one decent on the bench. They wouldn’t take Fish and they would need more than Farmar. If Harris went there the Lakers would be tough to stop…

  • Will Smith: I think I’ve seen you’re picture before!
    Girl: Really?
    WS: Oh yeah that’s right it was in the dictionary next to KABLAM!!

    Bynum possibly. He’s improved, but he doesn’t play well with Gasol and he gets less minutes than Odom. I haven’t run it through the trade machine, but I don’t see how Wall and Harris could play together.
    Harris will be traded this offseason, and LA is the contending team in most need of a pg.
