Hat tip to basketball-reference.com for info on the Celtics and the Bucks
The Celtics schedule has been pretty light recently. They had last Thursday and Friday off before a road game in Charlotte on Saturday. Then there were two more days without a game. Meanwhile, the Wizards are playing their first game against a team from outside of Indiana since April 2nd, with games against the Pacers on Friday and Sunday. Add it all up and even with the Celtics on the road and likely down a few stars, I give them the edge.
Last Time They Met
Boston won on the first game of a road trip that saw the Celtics rip through Texas.
I Don't Know What to Say
I just want the Celtics to stay healthy. And of course I'd like Tony Allen to play well.
He Might Be Hurt...
Mo Williams missed the last Bucks game, though he might play tonight. However, that doesn't take away from the Mo Williams show. And based upon Williams' shirt in those clips, they may have filmed all of segments on the same day. And yes I chose to put the spotlight on Ruben Patterson, a.k.a the luggage stealer (via Ball Don't Lie).
Leon Powe goes for 20-10 tonight.
I know it is a part of the SB Nation network. But I would link to Brew Hoop even if it were part of the "I hate the Boston Celtics" network. Thankfully that does not exist.
Just Play the Game
I don't have much else to say but I will be watching.
