Join us tonight from 9-10pm when Scott Souza of the MetroWest Daily News will be our guest. Scott is also a weekly contributor to Celtics Stuff Live and has been providing our readers with some top-notch material this season every Friday. Today, he previews the importance of the match-up against the Cavs today at 1pm:
With a loss in today's game (ABC, 1 p.m.) the Celtics will be 2-4 on the six-game homestand they were supposed to use to shore themselves up for the playoffs. They will also be 24-24 since Christmas Day.
So, yeah, Cleveland is a big game. But this time it has little to do with ABC, or LeBron James, or laying the groundwork for a future playoff matchup.
It's a big game for the Celtics to show they are still a big-game type of team.
"I can only speak for myself - Doc (Rivers) may feel a different way - but to me it's just another team coming in," Rajon Rondo said. "They're a good team. We're playing bad right now. So we need a win regardless of whether the Knicks are coming in, or the Nets are coming in. We need to get a win."
