Game Day #17 Boston

Okay...fearing that I was sickeningly sycophantic in that last post...let's press on.

A friend of mine who blogs here often says things like this...

Listen, sometimes you get the doucheball, sometimes the doucheball gets you.  The Celtics had the douchiness ratcheted up early......

or...

GUYS WHO LOVE TO MAKE DOUCHEBALL PLAYS HATE TO HAVE DOUCHEBALL PLAYS DOUCHED BACK AT THEM

and...

Doc Rivers, as always, contested every call all night long, including ones which went the Celtics way, and one blatant defensive three seconds call on Garnett, which even Garnett himself acknowledged was accurate by raising his hand and nodding at the call in agreement! 

Gimme a "D"...gimme an "O"....gimme a "U"...
As you've by now deduced he dislikes the Boston Celtics....as a great many of us do....I do not have any great affection for Kevin Garnett (unlike the vast majority of Twolves fans). Garnett is to Minnesota what Sir Alex Ferguson is to Aberdeen fans...he employs questionable, trouble-making tactics but the rose tinted spectacles are too powerful to allow the dark side to develop. I arrived to support Minnesota well after Garnett left so I'm a relative newbee and therefore, you may argue, not in full possession of the facts. Whatever. He is a big contributor, along with Paul "the truth" Pierce and Raging Rondo ( who Dos claims is a social deviant ) to the doucheball ethic.

Onto the game. I think Minnesota can win this one especially if they can continue to hit open jumpers. No-one is expecting another avalanche of threes but just hitting anything that is offered will do nicely. I assume there will be a bit more work for Plan A tonight. K-Love should concentrate on his inside game for now....there's no real need for him to hoist up 7 or 8 threes...unless the first two go in ofcourse!

 I hope someone picks a fight with Pek.......no, really, I do.
