     Doc should rest Rondo in the second half so he can come out burning on Sunday

    [QUOTE]I think tonight we are going to see a proud Celtics team bounce back against a Portland team that struggles in Boston.  The Sixers game left a bad taste in everyone's mouth so tonight the Celtics will put it together and get back into the win column. I will be patient because I anticipate we'll start slow but put it together in the 2nd quarter and close it out shortly after the start of the 4th. Not to suggest this is a "must win" but we cannot go into an 8-game road trip having lost two consecutive games.  I guess that means this is a "must win". Let's go Celtics....

    You were right about the Celtics having a great game.  One of their best games of the season so far.   This is also the last home game on a Friday night for the remainder of the regular season.

    [QUOTE]In response to "Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Blazers": I understand that, but at least be an option when Pierce can't do it. Kobe is undeniably the best closer in the game. That is his role, but how many times has Fisher been there to hit the game winning shot. Even if he is not the closer, he should be a threat that you have to guard in close games. Not someone that you can lay off of to double everyone else that catches the ball

    A team and players should play to their strenghts and thats why the Cs have been a good team in the past... in crunch time option one is Pierce  option two is Ray ...i do believe there are times when Rondo should drive to the hoop with his quickness to creat shots for other if there but I think plays at crunch times are established by doc not rondo

    In response to "Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Blazers": [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Blazers : aaand what, exactly, does John Wall do better than Rondo? ill give him dunking ability. Posted by JamezHill24[/QUOTE] Wall will take and make shots when the game is close. Remember Wall beat the Celtics last year with a buzzer beater. I have never seen Rondo do that. You cannot compare Rondo and Wall's stats. Wall is on a garbage team. Put Wall on the C's he will average 10+ assists also. Additionally, he will be a player that has to guardedly all times. He may not make all the shots, but at least he is a threat to do so

    [QUOTE]In response to "Re: Game Thread: Celtics vs Blazers": Nothing really to do with his play tonight besides the fact he just stands on defense. My comment is a general one based on watching him for the past few years. Again I like him as a player, but I want this team to win now and going forward. If he really was a player that could be built around he would take control of games and be a closer when the games are tight. Nothing to do with this game.

    Celts leading by 30 points and about to win their 6th game in 7 starts and still the Rondo haters are strong.

    Not saying they'll win on the road trip, but let's at least give Rondo some credit for how he's playing in the games since the all star break (and the rest of the team).

     + 1 on the Brick Wall.

    Wall is the second most overrated number one draft pick in the last 20 years.  The other was Kwame Brown - also drafted by the Wizards!

Having said that, the team has played great lately. Rondo has been a big part of that. As long as he is a part of this team, I hope he continues to improve and his strengths far outweigh his weaknesses

    I'd just like to see us win a game by over 20 points where it was never close.  Let's close this out and be so far ahead, Doc won't be worried about giving the bench the role of closing it out!

    oy - Ray came to play tonight.  Different team when he is an offensive power.

    Would sure like to see Johnson and Moore get some PT in this one, especially Moore who has been doomed to the end of the bench for some reason.

    Well when you say things like he just stands on D and the Cs need to get a more complete PG  those arent exactly compliments.

    He was a great college player.  Many college players never become great NBA players.  He is still very young and will probably improve.

    Forty-three point lead midway through the third qtr.  Why are the starters still in there?
