Kevin Love is definitely on my list of players I think could have made great Celtics. To get on that list, a player must have a lot of intangibles and a super attitude to accompany his talent. Hmmmm. Maybe it would be fun to start a thread on that subject.

Hi Sam, I'll be here for a bit.

Yeah, Kevin Love is one of those great players that play below the rim.

First time watching Love for me. Interesting in a pregame interview he said he learned a lot from Russell and had spoken with him a few times. Now that is a smart kid!

Did I say we were starting off slow? Seems to have worked out the kinks.- 15 points with just over 5 minutes left.

I'm liking the interplay between Rondo and Bradley.

Love these fast starts. Now, if they can do not worse than seal off that lead for a while, they'll have the Wolves in catchup mode...which I also love.

The Minny announcers are oohing and aahing about the Celtics pick-and-roll defense.

Our perimeter defense has been very good so far.

So now that years have gone by how did the KG trade work out for Minny?

Hey, BobH, do you still have clothespin marks in your nose every time Dooling shoots?

The marks are still there. The clothespins are being used for their original purpose for now.

They're still available, if I need them.

Steamer playing hard. 6 points on 3-3, a block and an offensive board in 5 minutes.

Steamer has the shot blocking gene that is certain, but he seems to have good court awareness and doesn't have the deer in the headlights look most first year players have.

That's what I want to see. I want to see Bradley use his speed and some aggressiveness to turn the corner and attack the rim.

Wow what a change in Bradley, I haven't seen many games this year but his confidence level must have gone up a great deal as he looks good on the offensive end now. Earlier in the year he seemed lost.

Leading scorer in the game, for either team, so far?

Wait for it...

Avery Bradley, with 12.

Our youngest forum member Brandon just walked in with his pup to watch the game. He says Rondo is still his favorite, the Cs can win it all, and they will "school" Miami on Sunday!

Hmm. Looks like they're going to sneak under double digits at the half.

Too bad. We could have sucked the life out of this team.
