Friday Notebook: Big Baby’s Almost Back and Sheed Comes Clean

First, my favorite quote of day the comes from Paul Pierce, discussing tonight’s game at OKC. Via the Globe

“We just got to have the killer instinct and go out there and try to finish the road trip. We’re not the type of team that takes that last game of the road trip off. We’re going to get the job done and sweep the road trip, that’s our mind-frame. We know Oklahoma City’s been playing well of late, they’re a good home team, and our job is try and close the road trip off on a good note.’’

Tonight’s game has “loss” written all over it. The last game of a four-game road trip. The second night of a back-to-back, after a game in which the C’s had to work their asses off defensively because of all the offensive boards the Spurs grabbed. 

You know what this quote reminds me of? The game in Dallas on the night before the All-Star break last season, when the C’s were down by double-digits in the 3rd quarter, KG was in major foul trouble and (as a result) Doc was ejected. A classic roll over and enjoy the break game. 

Except Pierce wouldn’t let the C’s roll over. He scored 18 points in a monster 4th quarter, including just about every clutch shot down the stretch. 

So when Pierce talks about closing out road trips, it’s not just empty bluster. 

Some updates on Big Baby, after the jump.

• Big Baby got his cast removed and the pins taken out of his arm. Via the Herald:

Forward Glen Davis is making progress in recovering from a broken right hand. The cast and pins were removed and he has been fitted for another cast, which he will wear for about two weeks.

“He’s really worked hard and he looks in better shape,’’ said coach Doc Rivers. “He looks like he’s really put some time into conditioning, and that’s a great way of winning your teammates back.’’

If we don’t get an awkward-looking lefty hook out of this, I’m going to be upset. In all seriousness, how Doc divides up the back-up power forward minutes between Baby and Shelden Williams will be one of the interesting subplots for fanatical C’s fans to watch. I still say Baby will get almost all of those minutes when the games matter. 

• Sheed has come clean about his technical against the Bobcats Tuesday, when the refs whistled him for arguing (apparently) about a call that went against Marquis Daniels. It looked innocent on TV, and a lot of people (not me) defended Sheed. But it wasn’t so clean. Per the Herald’s Mark Murphy:

He acknowledged deserving his most recent in Charlotte on Tuesday night, noting that he cursed.

“Before I came here it was never an issue before,” he said. “My only concern is that they don’t cheat me.”

Don’t you wish newspapers would report things like the exact curse word (or, more likely, the series of curse words) Sheed used? In any case, it’s good to know he feels he got his money’s worth against Charlotte.

    can we please talk about allen iverson crying at his press confrence

  • http://www.celticshub.com Zach Lowe

    @dranen: sure. what did you have in mind? He cried. It seemed fairly genuine, to me at least. He seemed to have a sense that he has damaged his rep. Do you believe him?

  • dranen645

    i think it seemed genuine, but i also feel it took him way too long to do it. I’ll believe him once philly gets back all their pieces and the question comes up about being on the bench again.

  • Tom

    Are they going to start him? I am sure he is better than Royal Ivy or anything they stick out there.

  • http://CelticsHub.com Zach Lowe

    He definitely starts. Maybe not immediately, but by his fourth or fifth game, I’d say for sure.
