Asked about their resiliency, Rajon Rondo said, "We haven’t got it done yet, but we will tomorrow. I think it’s our mindset. It’s our focus and our intentions coming into the game. We’re going to make sacrifices and make plays."
“Of course, we’re at home but they’ve beaten us on our home court,” Pierce said, referring to the 82-81 loss in Game 2. “You still have to go out and play the game but I feel good. A couple of days rest for a veteran team, much needed. I like our chances.
I've said it a bunch of times in a bunch of places. I'm supremely confident in a win tonight. The Sixers are going to get caught up in the hostility of the Garden crowd just like they got caught up in the craziness of the Philly crowd. They'll make stupid mistakes because of it.
The Celtics, meanwhile, have a long history of bouncing back at home after horrible losses on the road in the playoffs. This is tailor made for a Gino-time romp and a Rondo triple double.
Don't give me jinxes. I don't believe in that stuff. This is history and reality. Even with the injuries, the Celtics can pull this off in a big way.
On page 2: Philly fans think KG has a point about the "fair weather thing"
It's pretty funny to see that many people agree with KG's "fair weather" assessment. I know through the magic of television that you can edit a lot of things to look almost anyway you want it to, but that was still a lot of Philly fans acknowledging KG was right.
