Tommy just said that, in all the years he's covered the Celtics, he's never seen any player take as much advantage of an opportunity as Phil Pressey has. That's a major compliment!

No Durant tonight. And, of course, no Westbrook. But OC can still be dangerous. Nonetheless, a weakened good team is exactly the kind of foe that can present the kind of challenge that's ideal for the Celtics to increase a notch on the development scale.

Go Celtics! Go Rondo! Go Phil! Go Jeff! Go Scal! (Oh, never mind.)

Okay, a game-on contest with no tangible prizes—just bragging rights.  How about guessing who the Celtics' high scorer will be tonight.  One guess per person.  No changes.  No guesses accepted after the first quarter.

I'll temporarily set aside my aversion for predictions (and this isn't really a prediction anyway—just a guess), I'll go for Humphries.  Hey, some of you non-members who are monitoring this thread.  .MEMBERSHIP IS TOTALLY FREE, AND YOU WON'T BE SOLICITED FOR ANYTHING AS A MEMBER It takes just a minute to join, and you can enter the contest.  Just think about the rush of notoriety you'll get if you join this Forum on the wave of a correct contest selection.  For four years, we've been promising a convivial, knowledgeable message board, and we've consistently fulfilled that promise.  When we disagree, we try our best to keep it from becoming personal, which we've always felt was the downfall of other Celtics forums.  So give us a shot!  We've never needed togetherness as much as we do in getting through this season.  Welcome in advance.

Sam

Kevin Durant sprained his shoulder during the third quarter of their most recent game. He returned to the game and score 9 in the fourth. What a gamer!

Goot tight defense to start the game.

Wallace doesn't hesitate in launghing and making a three. They've had a lot of threes in these last two games; but what I've liked best is the confidence with which they're shooting.

Jeff starts where he left off. But they have to step up their interior defense.

Rondo didn't just hit a three. He looks pretty agile and quick out there. Oh swell, Sully hurt his right hand.

Great move by Wallace to draw the offensive foul. Gerald's playing a heck of a game!

Four assists for Phil in 7 minutes with no turnovers.

Matty, in case of injury, you're allowed to switch your vote. Sully's now got two fingers taped together on his right hand. I'm not suggesting that you change your vote, just letting you know it's permissible.
