Key Matchups 
(http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/basketball/nba/players/3253.jpg)  vs  (http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/basketball/nba/players/4717.jpg)
Paul Pierce vs Evan Turner
Turner is becoming the Sixers go-to guy.  He scored 26 points  (10-26) and grabbed 10 rebounds in the last game including the game winner.  Paul Pierce had an almost identical shooting night with 27 points on 9-24 shooting to go with 4 rebounds and 5 assists. Pierce also played almost 45 minutes and that could be a factor in this game.  If his legs aren't there he needs to pass more and shoot less. 

(http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/basketball/nba/players/4149.jpg)  vs  (http://i.cdn.turner.com/si/.e1d/img/4.0/global/basketball/nba/players/4622.jpg)
Rajon Rondo vs Jrue Holiday
As has been the case so many times, as Rondo goes, so go the Celtics.  When Rondo is aggressive the Celtics seem to click on all cylinders.  When he is passive, they struggle to score and seem to lapse into trying to do too much as individuals instead of playing team ball.  Rondo had a triple double in the last game, but missed the last shot in both regulation and in OT.  The Celtics need him to continue to be aggressive in this game also. 

Keys to the Game
Defense - As always, defense is key to winning.  Period.  The Celtics did a good job of holding the Sixers to 37% shooting in the first game but some of that was the Sixers missing open shots.  The Celtics need to ramp up the defense even more.  The Sixers scored 40 points in the paint and the Celtics need to do better at defending the basket. 

Take Care of the Ball  - The Celtics tend to turn the ball over way too much.   The Celtics need to keep their focus and make smart passes and avoid the costly turnovers that almost always lead to a score for the other team.  They turned the ball over 18 times for 21 Sixers points.  That was the difference in the game.  They must take better care of the ball. 

Rebound - When the Celtics put out the effort to win the battle of the boards, they usually win..  Rebounding is mostly effort and will and when the Celtics put the effort on the glass it usually shows up in other areas also.   They did a good job of staying with the Sixers in the rebounding category and they need to continue to do that again in this game. 

Be Aggressive - The Celtics need to stay aggressive.  They have to be more aggressive going to the hoop and not settling for outside shots.   They have to be more aggressive going to the basket.   They have to be aggressive on defense, in going after loose balls, and in going after rebounds.  They have to be the team that wants it more. 

Game Notes
The Celtics take on the Sixers for the second night in a row as they complete the home and home series.  The Celtics are coming off of a heartbreaking loss in over time in the first game.  And playing the extra minutes in overtime may result in less energy for this game.

This game will be at home and hopefully the crowd can give them a boost and help them to dig down and find some extra energy.  The Sixers also played the extra minutes the night before, but they are younger and it probably won't affect them as much. 

The Celtics need to drive the ball more and depend less on jumpers and 3 pointers since their legs may not be there in the second of back to back games.  Rondo is coming off of a triple double and pretty much had his way with Jrue Holiday, who might be looking to regain the edge.  Rondo needs to continue to play aggressively on both ends of the court. 

The Sixers have now won 2 preseason games and 2 regular season games.  The Celtics need to make a stand here as this game may come back to haunt them at the end of the season when they are vying for playoff seeding.   The Celtics need to dig down and win this one. 

X-Factors

Back to Back  and Home Court
The Celtics seem to be affected more when they play back to back games.  Hopefully they don't run out of gas before the end.  The home crowd should give them a bit of added energy.

I have a feeling that we come out with intensity/fire tonight after last nights loss..

the team gets a chance to avenge the loss and I think they will.

but, with Pierce/KG logging heavy minutes(more pierce than KG IMO) we are going to need the bench guys to step up.

looking for good games from; Rondo, Jeff Green tonight'

and bounce back games from: Terry, Bass

Their back court is going to be very good for years to come. They will regret bynum though.

Their coach has made believers out of them for sure, he has em play en better than they really are IMO.  I thought it was Iggy that slayed the Celtics , we should be beating them now .

Maybe Jeff Green 's young legs will take over put the Celtics over the hump tonight.

Agreed.  Philly always plays us tough too.

Honestly, I didn't expect to win both of these games, so I will definitely be satisfied if we win tonight, but very disappointed if we lose.

See, i guess we just see their players differently. I Think Holiday is a stud scorer, not top 25 or anything yet at 22, but he'll be a multiple allstar before he's done.

Turner is quickly showing that the "Bust" label was put on him to quickly, He's going to be a lights out scorer, he's already putting up good numbers. I see him as more of a 2 though.

LAvoy Allen is a nice young piece too.

They need to add a true 3, and depth in the front court, but they aint the raptors man, and we're not the Celtics of 2 years ago.

regretfully, I think the two teams are pretty close talent wise at this point.


I think Philly will be around in the end. Heck unless we show some stones soon they might win the Atlantic.

All that said, We should beat them tonight at home, and in a playoff series. There not quite there yet.

Tough loss last night I agree.  But this team is getting better slowly but surely.  D was strong in the 4th yesterday, Green was rebounding and playing some D.  Every game get a little better -- that's the big idea IMO.  Therefore, I am interested in tonight's game and will be psyched for a well-played win.

No, he was shooting it very well this season. Just the last handful of games have been off, but lots of them are ill advised 3s in the first place. So not going to over think it at the moment.

Tonight (so far) gives a glimpse of what this team can be.  Everyone contributes -- Wilcox, Bass and Lee hustling, Sully fighting for inside position, Pierce shooting and driving, KG doing it all and Green with a solid offensive stint.   Rondo playing hurt but playing with fire -- 5 assists and 4 boards.

Good half.

Great first half.  Need to keep up the intensity during the second half, or else we'll see a classic Celtics collapse.

Loving Green's aggressiveness, and Terry and Pierce are much more efficient tonight.  KG doesn't look so fatigued either.  Really enjoyed the effort of Bass and Sully on the board.  If only Lee could get that shot to fall...

I predict a BIG run in the 3rd from the 6ers.

I just don't believe Philly has a roster that can handle a deficit like this. Now, if the Celtics start playing sloppy and lazy...anything can happen of course.

Great half..not to nitpick, but why only 7 mins for Green, especially with Pierce playing big mins last night?  I think Doc needs to be playing Paul on something closer to the KG plan.....

Yeah, you would think that would be the smart thing to do, but not the doc thing to do.

Doc isn't smart?  I'd say he probably knows more than most of us (certainly not all of us).

Like we heard in last night's game, Doc is only working to get into the postseason. He is not bucking for a 1 seed. As a result, he is happy to go with someone struggling in a December game to give them time to work it out. It can be frustrating to watch sometimes, I agree, but I understand what Doc is doing. It has paid off before and if the Celtics once again are a cohesive team with multiple threats come April, it is worth it.

Doc is a truly awful coach.  What is he doing pulling KG after 4.5 minutes into the third quarter when he had it going?  It made no sense.  Just put the game away first and then KG can rest all he wants.  Now it's a game again.  No coach has done less with so much talent as Doc has.

Any game before Christmas I can care less about. I still will watch though. Once January comes, that is when the season becomes more important. And I'm happy Green his starting to gel with this team

well here are some positives so far.

better bench than last year. will be even better once JET goes back while AB starts. Rebounding by Sully is improving nicely i just want more points in the paint from him and wilcox to help KG.

notice we do not see those 4 minute dry spells anymore? We have offense. we just need the D to get better and better. I still think we need to make a trade for one more big guy who can play some D, score some down low and block shots also.

Couldn't watch the game but nice to see the W. it's weird to see KG had no rebounds though. What's up with that?

A bit late and might have been posted already...

But KG massaging Rondo was hilarious. Bench not remotely affected seemingly by what happened.

When you shoot well there are less of them.  Still was effective.   I liked the Wilcox/Sully combo is it time to bench Bass?
