Alright so I refuse to read too much in to a preseason game but I will say that it was nice to see the Celtics bench beat the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The biggest thing to take from this game is what a shame it is that the NBA can only dress 12 guys. It seems like every player, right down to Giddens and Hudson. Everyone just seems to be gellin’ so well and every seems like they not only want to be on this team, but want to play hard as well. Only time will tell if this chemistry and team ball will translate in to the regular season, but all I can say is that I like what I see.
Another thing of note is that Marquis Daniels can completely abuse people if he wants to. He lulled Jamario Moon, a good defensive player, to sleep and just embarrassed him.
With every preseason game, the Celtics have been moving the ball around better and better and not only getting threes, but getting wide open threes.
The worst part about the preseason is that it is the preseason. The Cavs could have been trying different things, maybe out of their element- or maybe they were just out of sync tonight.
The only way to know for sure is to tune in Tuesday.
Can I get a HooHaww Tune In Tuesday?!
