Two tough nights in a row, but I still have faith in this team.

The Celts are injured and drained, but they've hung tough against two of the top four teams in the East.  I'm not ready to give up on this team, especially because when fully healthy and in rhythm, they're still the best team in the NBA.

That's also how I feel. I hope to look back at this stretch in March and laugh when we are blowing teams out by 20 and Rondo to KG oops are the norm.

Some positives to take out of last night's game:

Anyone else notice how much better the Celtics rebounded the ball last night

Atlanta is one of the better offensive rebounding teams in the league ranking 7th in offensive rebounding per game at 12.0 and 8th in offensive rebounding rate .281

Celtics held them way below those averages last night with just 7 offensive rebounds and an offensive rebounding rate of just 18%

The Boston starters as a unit played very well, outplaying the Atlanta starters whenever they were on the floor together, in my opinion, we won't discuss the bench

KG and Paul were world's better in this game than the night before, we won't discuss Ray's shooting or Rondo's lack of offense

I think this team pretty much has made some strides to play better in the last couple of weeks

Orlando and Atlanta are a combined 36-9 in their home courts and winning in either place is not something that is easy to do

I think the Celtics were in each game until the end and had a chance to win both games in the fourth quarter

I see progress from two weeks ago

If they keep it going, I'll be a happy person but I definitely think Danny Ainge has to upgrade this bench to give these starters a much better chance at success without riding the starters completely into the ground

If you're looking for someone to agree with you and recite the same ideas back to you during the game, buy a parrot.
Thanks for the advice

It was a large help

Tell me why don't you watch every Laker game

Is it because you don't enjoy watching the Lakers

Well, I don't enjoy watching the Celtics while blogging and reading every other post that my team sucks, are doomed, won't win the game, can't do anything right, are too old to win anymore and all the other stuff I am being told

I'm not looking for parrots I'm looking for people that aren't going to p!ss me off

dude i have a solution but you'll have to bear with me, ok?
Grab a few boards, keep the TO's under 14, close out on shooters and we'll win.

Honestly don't want to hear your solution as I am happy with the one the blog and it's creators and moderators have provided

No offense

Good Points, PLamb.

And we are going to need P2 to go off like he did in the ATL game today, which I believe he can.

Agree

LA's biggest weakness is their point guard play

Driving by those guys and looking to finish or dish to an open man will be the key offensively and he should crash the defensive boards

LA can be beaten badly by Boston in a half court style game

Utilize Rondo's rounding ability on the defense, push the tempo when it is there but hit their weakest link, their PGs

Some positive negatives about the Lakers:

- Kendrick Perkins consistently outplays Andrew Bynum and makes him a non factor in Celtics games

http://www.basketball-reference.com/play-index/h2h_finder.cgi?request=1&p1=bynuman01&p2=perkike01

Bynum averages 8 PPG, 4.7 RPG and only 0.8 BPG playing head to head versus Perkins

- The Lakers are 4-7 on the road versus teams with current winning records

- The Lakers are 1-4 on the road versus teams that currently have a .600 winning percentage or better

- Over his last 7 games Kobe is shooting just 41% from the field and 28% from 3 point land

- The Lakers are only 8-6 in their last 14 games

- The Lakers are also nursing their way through injuries with Kobe, Gasol and Artest all slowed this month by injuries
