Celtics Stuff Live 5/7: Scott Souza

Celtics Stuff Live hit the airwaves Thursday night feeling pretty good following the Celtics dominant performance in Game 2 and the late afternoon word that Rafer Alston would be suspended for Game 3 due to his inexplicable swat to Eddie House's head in last night's fourth quarter. Still, questions surrounding Paul Pierce and the bench's ability replicate their Game 2 performance don't allow a completely comfortable night's sleep, but such is life of an NBA fan in the playoffs.

Scott Souza of the Metro West Daily News was kind enough to spend a few minutes with Jon and Justin to offer some of his impressions from last night's contest and provide an update following today's practice at Healthpoint. Scott offered a bit of a preview of his article for Friday's paper where he delves a bit deeper into the Celtic bench, specifically in the backcourt, and Scott finds perhaps a rosier picture than many fans have seen over the last few weeks. Scott rightly notes, that even during last year's championship run it took some time before Doc found a rotation he was comfortable with and that seemed to turn out all right for all involved.

Following Scott's turn with CSL, Jon and Justin answered a voicemail and email on Paul Pierce and his struggles so far in the playoffs, and wrapped it all up with having a pair of callers on the show at the same time as an intriguing way to still end the show in an hour... however, we failed.
