Preseason Game 4: Boston Celtics vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Open Game Thread

After about the 3rd or 4th preseason game I start to zone out a bit and pine for the regular season. That intensifies when Boston takes the court with a team its already played in the preseason. You know, like tonight. So in anticipation of tonight's game I'm throwing out 5 players I'll be watching, as well as what I'm looking for:

Point Guard: Gabe Pruitt - initiate the offense
Shooting Guard: Tony Allen - avoid turnovers and foul trouble
Small Forward: Darius Miles - earn a roster spot (vague I know)
Power Forward: Glen Davis - conditioning
Center: Kendrick Perkins - defend and look/stay healthy

Head over to Fear the Sword to check out the enemy and catch a Cavs' season preview.

On the bright side, if they run out of balls in Pittsburgh, they can use a sock:
