View From The Opposing Bench: Piston Powered

Thumbnail: First things first in this one. Paul Pierce is back in action after missing Monday’s game due to personal reasons. He’ll be back in the starting five with Green, Bass, Bradley and Wilcox. No update on Kevin Garnett during the pregame from Rivers, as we get closer to his scheduled return at the two-week mark later this week. That hurts for tonight, as the Pistons are a very big team, with Monroe and Drummond in the frontcourt. 

Prediction: The Pistons are 2-0 against the C’s this season, but I don’t see them pulling a sweep here, despite KG’s absence. Boston’s hot shooting at home continues, and someone in the frontcourt shows up enough to slow down Drummond and Monroe on the glass. Celtics 99, Pistons 93

    Anyone know what radio station the game is on Now that The Sox Are On 93.7?

  • Anthony

    Damn you NBA.TV, showing Rondo in warm-ups shooting jumpshots.

    Such a tease.

    • CelticsBIG3

      I'm a little behind on my DVR and I just saw that on the CSNNE coverage. That is insane.

      • Anthony

        That knee brace looks pretty solid but I wouldn't put it pass Rondo to try to come back.

  • IBleedGreen

    Jeff Green is clutch

    • hydrofluoric

      He's shooting an insane percentage on 3s during close games.

      • hydrofluoric

        And a CLUTCH rebound!

        You gotta love when a Pistons possession ends with the announcer saying, 'Villanueva…!'

  • Had22

    That clutch 3 by Green tho!!

  • Art

    Despite all the adversity this season the C's have made the playoffs.

    Now, more than wins, loses or seeding, the only thing that matters is health and preparedness.

    Get'em ready Doc! BEAT THE HEAT!!!
