If Amir starts, I hope he has a big game.

Brad should have his head checked if Amir starts plays again this series.

Fixed.

Sidenote: What is the matchup that Amir is actually playable in? Talk about falling off a cliff!

I was thinking about that earlier. He could play and start against Cleveland's frontcourt, though I feel like he'd be absolutely killed on switches and the PnR to the TT alley-oop.

I'd prefer to stay smaller with Al at center to give us more overall spacing, but I could see Brad going back to him if we make it to the next round and play Cleveland.

I think Amir gets some run against Thompson in the next round.  TT will wear Horford out over the entire game.  Also, it's tougher to play small, since Crowder needs to be LeBron's primary defender, and you need someone to guard Love.  Obviously Olynyk can do that some of the time, but we'll probably want Amir at least occasionally.

Love the optimism discussions here and I know it's a blog, but...let's try to focus on Game 3 against the Wizards first  ;D Hope the C's do not start out the first quarter trailing by 17 again...

I'm not expecting a win because I think the Wizards will be super hungry with their backs against the walls.

BUT

If the Wizards want to be even more physical than last time (as Morris said they should) and the refs don't like it, this could frustrate them and get them out of rhythm.

So maybe there's a chance tonight. Also, in IT I trust.

Go C's !

Steal this one. We can do it and shatter their confidence.

Payback time for Thug Morris.  The refs didn't call his throwdown of Horford last game, I hope they make the adjustment.

HEY, Maybe that's something Amir could do? Beat on Morris a little. Maybe get inti a fight and get them both tossed? Who knows, maybe he can do something to help.

I don't think Amir is capable of this, just too nice a guy.  More likely would be Morris-Smart and if they both get tossed, I don't like that tradeoff at all.

I expect this game to be the toughest of the series. Wiz will be ready to go at home. I feel like Boston loses tonight but gets game 4

Why not start Zeller in the (hypothetical) Cleveland series?  Amir got his brains beat in by Robin Lopez and Thompson is far more physical and a better rebounder than Lopez.

usually when a team is down 2-0 on the road and gets home they give their best effort in game 3 at home. they could easily blow us out. if we steal this one somehow, the whiz may still win game 4 due to it being an elimination game however the flip side is they could completely collapse if down 3-0 and give up mentally.

John Wall will play tonight, but he did admit that he sprained his ankle last game, which caused him to miss shootaround this morning. Hopefully that slows him down a bit tonight.

Crazy stat: 63 of 75 3's taken by C's against the Wizards have come with no defender within four feet. So it's not like we've just been hitting tough shots over the defense. We've been getting really good looks and knocking them down, which shouldn't change unless the Wiz up their D.
