Round 3 between the Celtics and Pistons will take place tomorrow night as the Celtics host the 2nd place Pistons. With both teams losing at home, we have a great game to look forward to tomorrow.
As the battle for home court advantage heats up, the C's will come in with the best record in the NBA and go up against a very good Detroit team. Celtics coach Doc Rivers is hoping his players will play like it is a playoff game as these are two very good teams. With the excitement of Sam Cassell coming to town, the Boston media asked if it would be a distraction to the team having him coming in. Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett all believe it will not be a problem, and are all very excited to see how Sam will perform.
Another thing that C's fan can look forward to is the possibility of P.J. Brown making his Celtics debut against the Pistons. Doc Rivers has said that there is no hurry to bring in Cassell, but may see Brown playing a few minutes in this game.
With all the attention on the Celtics and their acquisitions, they are ready to go against the Pistons and are ready to take absolute supremacy in the Eastern Conference.
Celtics win a thriller in OT 124-120.
Allen has a big game and puts up 30 pts.
Pierce is Pierce and puts up 26.
And Garnett helps with 18 pts. and 14 rebs.
