    If there was ever a time for a poor-playing Celtics team to come out of their shell it would be on a Friday night, in Boston, and against an Indiana team that frankly wins by losing.

    Especially on the heels of a 20 point drubbing at the hands of the Memphis Grizzlies. I fully anticipate an ultra motivated Boston team tonight.

There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Boston is going to play hard tonight, it is make or break time for them. Doc tried to motivate them a LA Times Article panning them, and I have a feeling it might work.

    I am liking Roy's smart decisions with the ball tonight.... As long as he stays out of foul trouble , I see him getting around 15 pts 6 Reb and 5 assists.. give or take a few ... heck who knows he may play better..

    Yeah I hope he's OK. Limping off the court, but under his own power thankfully.

    Do not want him to get a major injury at the end of this pointless season that causes him to miss time next year

    He was listed as being out for tonight's game, I thought.

    For bruised ribs, so he may have just been a game-time and is going to play limited minutes tonight.

    I think Davis ran over him. Apparently banged knees.

    I didn't like Wallace's signing in the Summer and I don't like it now. It's not that he contributed to the decline by making other players worse, it's that he didn't bring the positive contributions that could upset the others players decline. The mistaken was compound when Ainge re-signed Big Baby Davis and then added Shelden Williams. We now have 3 backup centers for Perkins and not a single above-average rebounder/perimeter 4/backup 4 (except Scalabrine, but he can't rebound).

    If Danny's knee is even the slightest bit strained, sit him for the rest of the season. Please.
