Pietrus Likely To Debut Wednesday

 

Good news for the Celtics.

Mickael Pietrus is on track to debut Wednesday night against Delonte West and the Dallas Mavericks. In additional good news, Pietrus seems entirely comfortable referring to himself in the third person.

Chris Forsberg has the scoop:

“There’s something you have to know about Mickael Pietrus, I always have a smile on my face,” he said with his French accent tumbling out of the familiar grin. And, if it’s possible, that smile was just a little wider Monday as the new Celtics swingman deemed himself on pace to make his 2011-12 season debut Wednesday night against the Dallas Mavericks.

“I haven’t played in eight months, so I’m not going to be Mickael Pietrus from the first day, but you can always help your team,” he said.

With Marquis Daniels (5.63 PER) and Sasha Pavlovic (5.95) both off to terrible starts, any contribution Pietrus can give the Celtics is welcome. The long layoff should ensure his conditioning and offense will be works in progress, but he will, at minimum, give Doc Rivers another hedge against Paul Pierce playing extended minutes early in the season. Look for him to be stationed as the weakside three-point shooter in half court sets and a game wing defender from the outset.

    Oh come on ! We are doing our best to be understood while speaking english :) that’s not easy for a french.

  • Chris from Danvers

    Looking forward to seeing his contribution. He will be a welcome addition, both as a shooter and as a defender. It may take about 8 – 10 games, but by the end of January, I bet he'll be a valued contributor….should be an excellent addition.

    And great point. PP could use a break every now and then.

      Looking forward to seeing him get into the mix as well, especially with Daniels and Pavlovic doing just about nothing for the Celtics.

    Remember when Malik Sealy played Stacy Patton in the movie Eddie? Priceless. I just hope it doesn't turn into this:

    "Whoa, whoa, whoa, if Stacey Patton don't shoot, Stacey Patton don't play."

    Just kiddin'. I've been wondering how long it would take for us to get Mickael Pietrus and/or Brandon Bass on our team. Ask and ye shall receive, Stacy Patton.

    P.S. R.I.P. Malik. Immortalized.

    Hoping he can be a solid 3 and D guy off the bench for us. Gotta give him a couple weeks to get to top form though.
