Celtics (40-23) vs Pacers (21-43)
Game time: 7:30pm, TD Garden. TV – CSN. Radio – WEEI-AM (850).
Bos: Pierce – 17.5 Pacers: Danny Granger – 23.1
Bos: Perkins – 7.7 Pacers: Troy Murphy – 9.7
Bos: Rondo – 9.8 Pacers: Earl Watson – 4.6
Who'll go off: Ray Allen. The Pacers are one of the worst perimeter defensive teams in the league.
Who needs to be stopped: Danny Granger. Explosive scorer who could will give Paul Pierce fits.
The C's will lose if… They want to. The Pacers are a poor defensive team, mediocre rebounding team, and average shooting team. A loss to Indy after what transpired Wednesday night would be catastrophic to the team's psyche.
Miscellaneous: Paul Pierce is averaging 12.5 points and shooting 34.1 percent from the field over the last four games. The season series is 1-1. Indiana owns a 7-27 road record.
Prediction: Celtics 103 – Indiana 79
After the jump, the Celtics dancers. They've been the only thing worth watching at the Garden lately.
