Once again I have to work during the start of this one. However, I should be able to catch some of the game tonight. Meanwhile, one of the biggest complaints against the NBA, is that with so many regular season games a lot of them do not matter. Well it is only the fifth game of the season and it feels like this one matters. The Nets have gotten off to a 4-1 start and the Celtics are sitting at 4-0. It is shaping up as an early statement game. Also it is the first back-to-back for the Celtics this year and they are on the road. Although I would never call New Jersey an intimidating place to play. Finally the Celtics will be without James Posey and Brian Scalabrine. It will be interesting to see if Scot Pollard gets his number called to match up against the Nets' bruisers. And it is imperative that Rajon Rondo and Kendrick Perkins stay out of foul trouble and Eddie House plays well again. Overall it is nice to have a big game in November.
