Rondo will play. I don't know yet about Bradley. Go Celtics! Always interesting to play against a Rick Carlisle-coached team. I've always felt that he, Paul Westphal and Don Nelson were great examples of very smart Celtics non-star players who became very smart NBA coaches.

Bradley's in too. So let's see what happens. Ellis was supposed to be out, too, but he's starting.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned is the rather amazing number of opening tips won by Brandon Bass. It's not all about height.

Instead of going under or fighting through picks, the Celts are switching and recovering quickly. They're doing pretty well at it so far.

Between his lack of height and his tendency to rush layups, Avery is not a dependable penetrator. He misses a lot of layups or has them blocked.

Hi everyone. You are right about those players Sam, but I think the fact that Red was still around when they were here helped them greatly. I bet they picked his brain and Heinsohn's

The Mavs are letting Sully camp under the basket but, in rebounding action, are pushing him too far under to be effective.

When Jeff spots an open lane, he can be really effective taking it to the hoop with authority.

Now Sully's on Dirk. Bass with 3 fouls in 6 minutes.

Kelly came over and set a nice pick to free Sully to go to the hoop, but the pass was just a little too high for Sully.

Great pick-and-roll Rondo to Sully. Perfect up-fake by Rajon too.

Rondo with the steal and up-tempo paired with Kelly for two freebies.

First period: Rondo played almost 9 minutes.  Tied at 13 (that's for Bob Heckler). Celts leading 11-8 on the boards.

Good observations about the experience of those guys learning from Red.

The Celts have done a good job of pushing the Dallas offense out and in gang-banging the defensive boards.

17-16 Mavs at the end of one. Hard to pick between the teams in terms of stats. Celts still have a rebounding lead, and Mavs ahead on the strength of better shooting from three.

Gerald and Kelly jointly did a great defensive job on that Mavs' missed layup.
