    Starters Matchup Info & Stats

    Celtics 2004/05 Stats

    Pistons 2004/05 Stats

    Injury Report:

    Boston Celtics:
    Tony Allen G Knee Surgery Return early December
    Marcus Banks G Foot Return around all-star break

    Detroit Pistons:
    Lindsey Hunter G Ankle Return early November

    Overview:
    The Celtics opened their season Wednesday against Larry Brown's new team, the New York Knicks, and won, 114-100, in overtime. Boston outscored New York, 20-6, in overtime and spoiled Brown's debut. But with so much youth -- Paul Pierce is the oldest player at 28 -- it will take time before the Celtics develop into a title contender. The Pistons played at near-perfection Wednesday against Philadelphia, but at times last season they had trouble sustaining intensity. A lag would help the young Celtics. Tayshaun Prince will guard Pierce.

    Should be a good one! The Prince/ Pierce matchup should be awesome.

    Yippee. I get to see the local Celtics broadcast. If I had hi-def, I could measure the veins in Tommy Heinsohn's forehead whenever a Celtic is called for a foul.

    That's funny. That reminds of Woody Hayes when he would go for two when he just scored a touchdown on UM in the last seconds of the game to go up by about 40. He was asked why he went for a 2 point conversion and he replied because they would'nt let him kick a field goal. :)

    Smooth

    My favorite Chauncey Moment came against the Celtics, last year, Chauncey hit a last second shots, then he walked up and (tap)smacked Ricky in the face, and walked away calmly... priceless

    Chauncey is cold. Sheed is suckin.

    The Celtics are being very active on D and on the offensive glass. They are tougher than I thought they would be.

    Celts

    They normally play Detroit tough at the Garden. I'm just surprised at how poor the shooting is from both teams and how many defensive assignments have been blown. Delfino was "covering" Pierce early on. Yeah, right. :confused:

    For My Man Micro......

    Pistons look very lethargic...

    I expected more from them this year. They need an attitude like Isiah had the year after they won the title. I remember the game we beat Seattle at the old key arena (I loved that place-Slick watts and Fred Brown). after trailing by 25 in the third quarter...This was a game that I expecting Sheed and dice to 'dominate'!!!

    No offense sets down low..the Wallace and Dice have 10 points and Dice took NO SHOTS!....This is where we'll miss lB , cuz he'll put those guards in check. Darko looked very comfy and hit a nice jay but we ran no plays at him or Dice......Very disappointing...and like I said - West is a stud- a more atheletic Dennis Johnson.

    Will keep u informed....Im listening to George interview Bob Ryan on radio- 2 class acts..and I wanted to smack JKidds wife too...my bruddah!!

    For the first time I'm excited about our young Serb... forget the mid range shot... the work around the paint was excellent!
    The most impressive play was when he was backed down and showed quick hops to recover and block Lafrenz's shot.
    Equally impressive was his boxing out and getting after the boards... now that's what we've been waiting for!

    Oh, yeah we're losing...
    Prince hasn't shot consistently since spraining his ankle against the 76'ers in the playoffs.
    Delfino shoulda left his sneakers in the locker room... BS performance so far.

    Rip looked outta control (Larry woulda loved that :^)...

    2nd half... comon Sheed take advantage of that weak matchup!

    i'm guessing this game is as ugly to watch as it is to read.

    missed jumper, turnover, foul. missed jumper, turnover, foul...

    It Appears Saunders Is Worse Than Brown

    when it comes to playing his bench.

    If this type of coaching continues its going to be a long long season.

    Wow. We're going to have 3 starters play 40+ minutes in the second game of the season....

    This is a hard game for me to follow. LaFrentz and Davis are on my fantasy team. :(
