Eat your Lucky Charms, KG, because Beantown has a sloth of bears in your city, and they have a hunger for Celtic blood! In this season's last meeting in December, we lost at home 110-105 behind Ray Allen's old man marksmanship. Since that last meeting, we have had a roller coaster season where we're currently trying to climb back up the hill and avoid another free fall.
With Monday night's home court feast against the Nets, we chewed up their comeback attempt and swallowed our 8 home game losing streak. All of this without our main eater Z-Bo hoo consistently has the team high plate count in points and rebounds. Now that we've had time to digest this streak-ending victory, it's time to continue eating at our 6 away game winning feast. Course 7: Celtics.
The Green Team is coming off an away loss to the Bucks last night, and they haven't fared as well at home lately. In the last two seasons, they've gone 70-12 at home, where this year they're 18-11, one loss shy of matching two seasons' worth of losses in less than one complete season. With a sore back keeping him out of Monday night's game, Z-Bo is expected to return to action tonight to do some Van Dammage to the Celts. Also back is Thabeet, as his Dakota Wizards are on a break from action. With no clear time frame for D-League return, he is free to once again whoop up on another seldom-used reserve, Sheldon E.T. Williams.
Welcome to erf, Shelden! It's time for an early St. Patty's celebration, Grizz style!
