Quantcast 2009-2010 Boston Celtics: Celtics vs Bulls


Celtics to Face D. Rose and the Bulls


The empty handed, yet not empty-handed Celtics are taking on the 16-20 Bulls tonight at 8:00ET. Rasheed Wallace and Kevin Garnett are both out with injuries but Rondo, Allen and Pierce aren’t. The Celtics are a deep and very talented team. When KG went out Rasheed took his spot. Then after Rasheed goes out, Big Baby Glen Davis gets the call. We all know that those three guys can get it done any day of the week. Davis, the 6-9 290 PF Center was playing big time minutes in last years playoffs for the injured superstar Kevin Garnett. He hit one of the many clutch shots in last year’s playoffs giving the Celtics the win over the Orlando Magic.

Everyone in Celtics nation is confused. Confused on why people get fined for being right. Doc Rivers was deprived 25,000 dollars of his money a couple days ago for arguing a call. A call that he knows was wrong as well as the NBA front office. Hopefully that won’t happen again with the officiating crew in Boston tonight as the struggling Bulls who did so well against the C’s last year in the playoffs take on the talented green team east.

The last time these two met The Celtics got the best of them, winning 108 to 80. Neither team necessarily shot the ball well but Boston’s defense held the Bulls to 1 for 9 behind the arch. In this game tonight I look for the match-up between, whom other than the dudes that handle the rock, Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo. Both of them lead their respective teams in assists and that’s what will be the difference in this one. Who can set up their athletically gifted teammates? Who can take care of the ball and not let the other team’s fast break points pile up? The point-guards; Derrick Rose can hit John Salmons on the wing, have Deng post up, and throw the lob to Tyrus Thomas. Rondo on the other hand, has a legendary shooter in Ray Allen on the Wing, the oh so versatile Paul Pierce he can just give the ball to, run the pick and roll with Big baby or hit the cutting Perkins for a dunk. Watch the guards ladies and gentlemen. Watch the guards.
