Boston Celtics @ Detroit Pistons: 1/5/08 - Open Game Thread - The Regular Season Matters Edition

The Detroit Pistons have won 11 in a row, the third of which was a victory in Boston. The Celtics have won 8 in a row. Players on both sides say they have not been thinking of the game. That's a lie. I don't have much more to say. The game speaks for itself. Let's just enjoy it.

One more thing. The Pistons are the kind of team that will not take any of the following lightly:

  • Goal tending shots after the whistle.
  • Rejections accompanied by, "Get that shit out of here!"
  • A chipped or broken tooth.
  • Excessive laughter on the bench.
  • A blow out loss.
Translation - This could get ugly.

I'm not sure I could be any more excited for a regular season game.
