IMO it's gonna depend on what type of calls IT gets on offense. Are the refs gonna let them play like crazed men, or will they call a tight game.

The C's need a response to the Wizards swarming all over IT, trapping him, and trying to turn him into a passer.

Should be interesting to see if the Celtics brain trust come up with anything different.

I think people are being a bit too pessimistic. This Washington team is a COMPLETELY different team on the road. Further, our supporting cast should be much better at home than they were in Washington the last two games, so I don't see any blowout happening. I think it will be close until the end.

that Washington being a "completely different team on the road" concept isn't something to fall in love with. esp. considering they've had pretty much a 20 pt. lead(at least) in every game. all they have to do is play a lil better if they do that again.

By that same token, we've yet to put together a full game, and we've barely put together one to two good halves. We're due for a really good all-around game, and I think it's tonight.

Tonight may be some of these guys' last game at the TD Garden in Celtics uniform.

That's a pretty pessimistic viewpoint.  Take it back.

Yeah, listen to salty.  We're going to win this one convincingly.

Salty knows best, but I'm very, very nervous about this one.

And I'll admit, Amir looks very engaged out there.
