Perk gives talk on talking, Rondo gets just credit, and Jeff Clark from CelticsBlog.com discusses the series with our own Zach Lowe:

As far as changes go, they’ll throw switch: After 94 games – preseason, regular season, and postseason – the Celtics are not changing their style. But they did do more switching defensively than usual in Sunday’s 121-118 double-overtime loss to the Bulls that tied the first-round series, 2-2. “As a whole, as a group, we switched a lot, and we’re not a switching team,” coach Doc Rivers said yesterday. Guard Rajon Rondo was among those guilty of gambling, sometimes creating mismatches defensively. [Boston.com]

Sharp at the point: Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett go by the nickname “The Big Three.” But if Rajon Rondo continues to play on this stellar level in the playoffs, should it be changed to “The Big Four”? “That’s very realistic, when you look at the way he’s playing,” said ABC analyst Mark Jackson, the former NBA point guard. “He’s been playing outstanding basketball. The only question mark is his ability to knock down the jumper. I don’t think those question marks will stop. But how much better will he get?” [Boston.com]

Series tie doesn’t suit this Celtics team: The Celtics [team stats] are tied 2-2 in their first-round playoff series with the Bulls, and they were tied 2-2 in the opening round last season against the Hawks, as well. So perhaps by squandering a couple of early games they are simply trying to retrace their steps to a championship. [BostonHerald.com]

Moving tale: Perk picks: Kendrick Perkins is without pretense – about as plain spoken an individual as exists in the Celtics [team stats] locker room. And when it comes to his opinion on how NBA referees treat his team, Perkins doesn’t hold back. “I don’t think the refs like the Boston Celtics,” he said after yesterday’s practice. When asked why, Perkins also was careful to indict his team. “I don’t know,” he said, breaking into a smile. “We’ve got a lot of talkers on this team, if you know what I mean.” [BostonHerald.com]

Are Moral Victories Enough?: The minute Kevin Garnett was pronounced “likely out for the playoffs” this postseason became an exercise in moral victories. Few people really believe that this team has a chance at the title and most of those people belong to the group that is holding out hope for a miraculous return by the Big Ticket in the later rounds. I don’t mean to belittle those folks. A small part of me clings to that hope as well. But for the most part, I fear that this season will end with a loss sooner or later. [CelticsBlog.com]

    I have not counted KG out, neither has Reggie Miller. I feel he has a pretty good opinion….they're neighbors.

  • Jeff C.

    A loss sooner than later? There is a reason why they postponed the surgery. KG can play, just not significant minutes. The intensity factor is huge, and thats what KG will be able to bring to the table. Again, lets not waste the comeback in the 2nd round. Wait till conference Finals. Celtics will peak at the right time. Doc, make it happen.
