The Celtics got crushed by the Clippers, 106-77, back in December.

How we see it goin’ down

Due to my oversleeping a scheduling conflict, I’m going with an an abbreviated version of today’s game preview. The Clippers will  likely be without Chris Paul (bruised knee cap), who’s missed 9 of the last 11 games. LA is a mediocre 6-5 in that stretch. Super 6th man Jamal Crawford is questionable with a broken nose.

We need the Pitbulls (Lee and Bradley) to put choke holds on Eric Bledsoe, Willie Green and take the Clips out of any offensive rhythm.

I hope KG got a good night’s sleep and took his vitamins this morning because he’s going to have his hands full with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. The Celtics bigs need to be active in this game. That means Brandon Bass and Jeff Green need to play with ENERGY.

I’m riding the Celtics…

    Got to play for 48 min. No relaxing on the Clips or they will crush you. Losing to the Raptors they are going to come out hard.

      but we could use a guy to pound the ball to death. you know, someone who’ll suck the life out of this team for his individual fame while playing no D. we could really use one of those.

        Dude, you really have to lay off Rondo. Your agenda is known around here. We know you hate him and you’re happy that hes hurt. Now shut up and stop repeating your sarcastic lines. Spammer
