Game 7: Celtics (3-3) @ Bulls (4-2) Open Thread

 

Boston @ Chicago
United Center
8:00 PM EST
CSNNE

Offensive Efficiency
Boston: 101.1 points/100 possessions (20th)
Chicago: 102.4 points/100 possessions (13th)

Defensive Efficiency
Boston: 101.1 points allowed/100 possessions (22nd)
Chicago: 96.1 points allowed/100 possessions (2nd)

Probable Chicago Starters: Nate Robinson (PG), Richard Hamilton (SG), Luol Deng (SF), Carlos Boozer (PF), Joakim Noah (C)

Injury Report: Kirk Hinrich is out with a hip injury, so Robinson will get his first start of the season at point guard in his place. Also look for Marquis Teague to see minutes off the bench.

View From The Opposing Bench: By The Horns

Thumbnail: A few things to look for tonight as the Celtics try to put together back-to-back road wins and get back above the .500 mark.

Starting 5: Doc Rivers is sticking with the Rondo-Terry-Pierce-Bass-KG combo for the second straight game. A wise move in my estimation, as putting together an efficient offense should be Boston’s biggest challenge tonight against the Bulls top-notch defense. Rondo could have himself a night against Robinson on the offensive end, but Pierce, KG and company will be challenged by the likes of Deng and Noah so the supporting cast must be able to step up. 

Signs of life from Jeff Green: There was plenty of progress in the second half of the C’s victory against Bucks for Green, who scored 10 of his 12 points in the second half and had a crucial steal in the closing seconds to help Boston clinch the win. Was this just a diamond in the rough or something more? Pierce will need help against Deng this evening and it will be up to Green again to take some of the onus off the captain and provide another night of production.

Hitting the glass: It’s always a challenge for Boston to remain competitive on the boards against an imposing Chicago front line. Omer Asik is now in Houston, but the rest of the familiar faces are still in place. The C’s continue to struggle on the offensive glass, but have been surprisingly good on the defensive end rebounding thanks to the efforts of Pierce and Garnett. With the Bulls imposing size, look for plenty of help from Chris Wilcox, Brandon Bass, and the guards down low if Boston hopes to escape with a win.

Prediction: Bulls 87, Celtics 81

    They can win this, just keep turnovers low and don't play hero ball. Let's go Celtics!

    Better intensity from the Celts last night, wanted the ball more than Bulls also there shooting percentage from the field was good too.
