Thanks again, NYCelt.

Great to read about the Celtics win last night. Rondo recapturing his form, Jermaine back. When the Celtics have five men in double figures, with three of them scoring 20+ points plus 24 fast break points, that usually bodes very well.

I can tell most of what I need to know by the box score, but I would like to have seen the substitution pattern. I know it was messed up by Krstic's loss. But I'd be interested to see with what combinations Green, Jermaine and Delonte played. I believe it's possible that Doc may very well be moving away from mass bench substitutions and more in the direction of individual substitutions of bench players.

In my mind, the 24 fast break points represent the single most important stat. At present, he Celtics need to play a lot of up-tempo ball as they struggle to (re)capture their half court chemistry. That's a big part of what their depth is supposed to be all about...pushing the ball without the necessity of pushing individual players into too many minutes. A nice forward step would be maintaining the up-tempo attack while also keeping all starters under 40 minutes.

In fact, the tempo of the game should be very important against Atlanta, along with the number of points in the paint with Krstic out and Jermaine and Davis getting most of his minutes.

So, for a contest tonight, how about the number of fast break points and points in the paint (combined) the Celtics will score. (They're available on the ESPN "NBA Scores" site. The fast break points are shown throughout the game, but the points in the paint stats are shown only at the end of the game.) Someone else may know a preferable site.

Entries due before the start of the 4th quarter. Individual entries may be changed as often as desired until that deadline. At least five entries needed to constitute a valid contest. No duplicates allowed. In case of a tie, the higher number wins. The winner gets $5...or $10 if the guess is exactly right.

Good luck everyone. And Go Celtics!

Sam

May be a stupid question, but a fast break that ends in a layup.......wouldn't that count as points in the paint too?

So am I to gather that "some" of these points may fall into both categories?

No problem Sam.

We boys on the second floor of the tower at Sam's World Headquarters have it covered while you're away.

We also took the liberty of having them do the windows in your executive suite so the early spring sun could come streaming in when you return.

Catch you soon.

KG sat for a really long time, I don't know if that is good or not. He dries out and has a hard time getting back into the game

This Celtics team has the makings of greatness - able to overcome adversity and pour it on even when tired. So many great players, so few playoff games.
