Bulls-Celtics Preview

Tonight the Chicago Bulls come to town fresh off a win against one of the Easts top teams, the Cleveland Cavaliers. But, the Celtics are coming off a great game Wednesday night against a very good Detroit Pistons team. Some may think this will be an easy victory for the Celtics, but I won't be suprised if they Bulls put up a good fight.

The Bulls come in tonight still clawing for a playoff position as they trail the 8th seeded Nets by 1 game. But on the other side, the playoff bound Celtics come in with the best record in the NBA. Should be an easy game right? Well I don't think so, Chicago played a very good game against a good Cleveland team last night. If the Bulls offensive weapons come out like they did last night, then the C's better be prepared for a good game.

One of my concerns for the Celtics is how Ray Allen will come back from his 3 pts. effort against the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday. This broke a streak of Allen scoring 20+ for 7 consecutive games. But with the Bulls shaky defense, I can see Allen having a good game. Paul Pierce also had a low scoring game against the Pistons putting up 16.

My main focus will be Kevin Garnett, if he puts out an effort like he did against the Pistons on Wednesday, the Bulls are in for a long day. Garnett, who put up 31 pts. Wednesday against the Bulls, should get to the basket with ease as he will be going up against Drew Gooden and Joakim Noah.

If the C's take this game light, we could see an upset. But if they are as determined as they seem, there should be no stoping them tonight against the Chicago Bulls on their home court.

I will also be in attendance of this game, I'll be rockin the #20 Allen jersey. GO C's!

Allen comes out strong with 18 pts.
Pierce puts up 26
Garnett puts up 28 with 15 rebs.

Bulls try and fight and stick around but the 1st place Celtics are too much for them and fall 98-82.
