DETROIT-- The Celtics held a shootaround at The Palace of Auburn Hills this morning and seemed in very good spirits.
Celtics coach Doc Rivers said the team is completely healthy and eager for the game.
"I feel good," Rivers said. "I felt the same going into Game 2, going into Game 1. I hadn't changed my feelings about my team all year, for the most part. I like our basketball team."
The Celtics are 0-6 on the road in the playoffs, but did win their lone regular-season game in Detroit.
On Boston's preparation to play on the road, Rivers said: "We have the same preparation. We assume we'd have to win one eventually. Now we do."
The Pistons had shootaround in their practice facility which is next door to The Palace of Auburn Hills.
As media availability was drawing to a close this morning, former NBA coach and ESPN radio analyst Dr. Jack Ramsay gave Allen some pointers.
Rivers added: "(Allen's) been great. We don't make a big deal over the points and all that. We just want to make him the right plays offensively and defensively."
