I probably could have written this post before the last game, but here goes:
Bradley traveled with the team, but appeared dejected at this morning's shootaround, and he did not participate. He wouldn't commit to playing in a Game 7 or a potential next series.
"I don't think I'll be able to play tonight," Bradley said. Coach Doc Rivers also said Bradley was unlikely to play.
"Right now, I'm not playing," Bradley said, as he received treatment from strength trainer Bryan Doo. "I'm definitely frustrated but all I can do is keep getting stronger and keep improving for my team. I'm just trying to get it better. It's been the same. I just have to keep trying to get is stronger everyday. I just want to make sure I'm 100 percent for my time. I'm just taking it day-by-day right now."
Ray Allen, who jumped back into the starting lineup in Bradley's place during Game 5, said he's feeling better after rolling his already ailing right ankle in that game. He would be in line to start again for the Celtics.
There it is. And just like everyone else, I'll be damned if I know how this game is going to go down. Is there a possible result that would shock you? Trying to figure this team out is harder than Gob trying to figure out which look works best for Kitty
… at some point, we're going to have to accept that it's probably going to be ugly no matter what, so we should just kinda roll with it and hope for a positive outcome.
