[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Love outrebounds Davis 24 to 1. : that's great. so it's true. and arguably it's all symantics. you know, if i got too much coffee in me after a celts win and came on here pointed out how rondo and biedrins are fighting it out for the basement FT% in the league, following a lousy FT shooting game like rondo, i'd be assailed. a win is a win. davis got outrebounded by 23. i think that is horrible. i know he can do better and can't understand why for a guy who shows so much mobility doing other things on the floor, why can't he move his butt around better boxing people out? i dunno. but i chose to look at the whole team and the malaise that has enveloped others more so than it has davis the last few games that have been close squeakers. i thought it was more meaningful to point out the fact that 2/3 of the personnel on the team leave something to be desired of in their recent performance. and i'll tell you this, if we don't get something out of nate, marcheese and shak tonight, we are dead meat. davis has historically done well against duncan and we'll see how he does against blair. but i assert that our success in this game depends on rondo scoring some points, marcheese doing something, nate doing something other than a goose egg and shak being active on the glass, IN ADDITION to just davis being a sound rebounder. right?!

I agree with your post. I think you're getting too worked up about BBD and the criticism hes getting.
We came into this game and all the talk was about LOVE dominating the boards, even Doc discussed it.. it was a focal point. Well, if Love finished the game with 7 rebounds..guess what.. there'd be alot of posts of how great BBD did holding him down.
If Derek Rose scored 48 against Rondo, thered be alot of posts about Rondos suspect defense.
Many celtics are not playing well right now and Id attribute some of it to the new rotations and injuries. You get into a flow with teammates and then theyre gone. Start over.
You make good points but youre getting too upset with the criticism heaped on BBD. He deserved it for that one game because it was spotlighted and very noticable. It stuck out like a sore thumb.
Its over and done with now.. on to the Spurs.
