Rebound!

This was probably a blown layup, but it looks kind of like a rebound.

If the Celtics are going to rebound from last night's loss, a good place to start would be by rebounding more.  The team that won the rebounding battle has won every game in this series.  It is no surprise that the Lakers won by 22 points when they outrebounded the Celtics 52 - 39.

It is going to be tough to rebound without our starting center in the game, but that's why we paid the big bucks to get Rasheed and that's why we hung on to Glen Davis, for moments like this.  In fact, since the series began, we've been anticipating Perkins missing a game due to picking up his last technical.  So the team is prepared.  Now they just have to go out there and do it.

It will take 100% effort from everyone from Rondo to KG to Pierce to the guys mentioned above.  Everyone's got to chip in.  And honestly, if you can't lay everything on the line for Game 7 of the Finals vs. the Lakers, then you have no pulse.

If the Celtics are going to raise a banner, they'll have to dominate the glass.
