Boston brings its
8 player 9 player (oops) team to Detroit to play tonight's game.Â I expect the Celtics to play inspired, gutsy basketball.Â I expect Al Jefferson and Gerald Green to bounce back with better games.Â And I expect the Pistons will keep the Celtics at arms distance the whole game before throttling it up a notch in the 4th quarter.Â And of course, I expect the C's to lose.
These are days for the kids to step up and show their worth.Â Since we're in Detroit,Â here's aÂ couple of quotes for you - first, one from Doc:
â€œLike I told the guys, all of you who felt you should have been playing more, well, here it is,â€ said Rivers. â€œNowâ€™s your chance to prove me wrong.â€
Next, one from Eminem:
Look, if you had one shot, one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted-One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip?
Time to step up kids.Â
Bonus link: If you missed it, Ryan Russillo (subbing for Chad Ford) had a solid interview with Wyc Grousbeck the other night.
