Pietrus’ concussion still in his head

Mickael Pietrus can make life easy for the Celtics.  He can come in, play some nice defense, hit a shot or two, and even drive to the basket when defenses over-commit to the jumper.  We saw SOME of the driving last night, but that's not going to happen very often, because Mickael Pietrus is afraid [...]

Enemy Chatter: Lavoy Allen neutralized Kevin Garnett
