the 1 problem that I have with playing Miami is if Garnett gets 2 foulsi then it's basically all over in the first quarter. Miami plays a lot over the rim so I know dribble penetration will be limited but LeBron and the Heat will continue to go strong to the hoop everytime. We'd then over compensate and help out our smaller low post defenderrs which will leave their shooters open for 3's.

which is why we  can try to get rotation help early if need be and when they kick it out hope they miss, if not then we will have to play them straight up mano y mano with no help inside when a dribble drive occurs. we really need perimeter defense for 48 minutes against those clowns. battier, Allen, miller and even chalmers can make you pay. It does sound best to put sully on bosh though. let sully use his size to box bosh out. Put KG on Haslem. sully also is good at taking charges although i doubt bosh dribble drives much. Hmmnnn, i wonder if sully could get some charges against Lebum?  ;D

nah, joey crawford and the other NBA clowns would not call it.  :P

While I am happy with the progress that has been made the last few games...Boston still has a way to go to be considered "back"

they are getting there but 3 games isn't enough to make that declaration

Pure heart, grit, and balls sounds like the recipe for the McRib.

Well played.

As for the "are we back?" question, I think the team's defense certainly appears to be getting back to where we expect it together.

I still have serious doubts that this team will be in a position to seriously contend for a championship, barring some luck with major injuries on other teams, unless they find a way to get a significant upgrade in the front court.  Need an inside scoring presence.

yep. without a doubt. other teams are looking at getting better. as if miami is not dangerous enough with all those 3 point shooters and arguably the best two dribble drivers in the game the may sign birdman now to help bosh down low on defense.

wow.
