Here’s what I’m thinking about for this series:
-For the Celtics, the key is Rondo. It’s as simple as that. For the last couple of years, the Celtics have torched the Cavs’ defense when Rondo’s aggressive and getting layups out on the fast break.
-Remember that the Celtics haven’t lost a playoff series KG has played in for them. This is a confident team that won the whole thing in 2008. And they want this series.
-We’ll see how long MB goes with Shaq. I’d love to see Varejao get going in this game.
-Hopefully the elbow’s alright. We’ll find out today.
-Sorry I’ve been running around too much for a proper preview, but here’s an open thread. See you after the game.
