After each game, we'll be taking stock in each players… and maybe coach's… performance. If we like what we see, we're buyin'. If we don't, we're sellin'. Or maybe we'll just hold onto our stock until we see more next game
Positivity: I wrote it earlier but it bears repeating. The Celtics are not dead yet. The team is not dead until it loses four games and it's only lost two. I don't want to be Mr. Rainbows, Sunshine & Puppy Dogs… the C's are exhibiting serious flaws right now… but it's not malignant. I'm not going to overreact to losing a couple of games.
Glen Davis: I don't know if its the pressure of not being under contract or what.. but this guy has been pretty bad for a long time now. I know the Celtics gave him the ball a lot during a key time, but that doesn't mean you have to go 1-on-2 with it. Yeah, I know you got fouled, Glen… but recognize who's on the floor with you too. Those shots belonged to someone else. Your job was to pull guys out of position.
Jeff Green: Hey, that's up from a sell. When Pierce went down with the strained achilles, he chipped in with 11 points on 4-6 shooting. But his defense on LeBron was spotty at best. No shock, though… Jeff Green isn't going to be able to guard LeBron. But expectations are high… so he'll get called on it.
Delonte West: Nice shooting night. 4-4 including a couple of 3's. Now… can he keep it up?
The Starters: If the Starters had played up to their capabilities, the C's may have split this series. Our hopes rise and fall with their performance. They need to step up and give good efforts for a full game. Rondo woke up for a surprising 20 point, 12 assist night but it felt like it could have been so much more. KG's 8-20 shooting has to be better. Pierce has to fight through nagging injuries and Ray's gotta find a way to get more than 7 shots.
