The people over at Bullets Forever are pretty fired up about the win tonight and the 3-1 edge in the season series. And they should be. When you look at how many games Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler and to a lesser extent Antawn Jamison have missed, it does make you wonder what could have been. Could Washington have been a three seed? At the same time the injuries helped the young guys like Andre Blatche, of shot in the chest fame, get valuable playing time and experience. But back to tonight. I'm not going to make any excuses. Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all played and played a lot. After that opening night beat down the Wizards have owned Boston. And yet my opinion of the Celtics has not changed. I respect, but don't fear Washington. I just want the playoffs to start.
