Herald Paul Pierce gets pumped to share King James’ court Keys to the Celtics-Cavaliers seriesRound 2: How Celtics match up with Cavaliers Celtics make pressure pointFL's Take: Defense will once again be the key to the Celtics winning this series. If they play the great team defense that got them here, they will win. James Posey has guard upFL's Take: Posey is a key. His defense off the bench on players like Varejao and LeBron will be huge. Let's not forget that the Cavs very much wanted Posey before he signed with the Celtics and made him an offer. I am very glad he came to Boston. Will Hawks coach return after leading Atlanta to playoffs?Too close to call Cold spell doesn’t faze Ray AllenFL's Take: Ray Allen will come up big in this series. Against the Hawks, he was spending a lot of energy chasing Joe Johnson on the defensive end and I believe that affected his offense. He won't have near as much trouble on either end of the court with Wally and I expect to see his numbers go up. Bettors still dig Celtics Billups’ 28, disputed shot lifts Pistons over Magic FL's Take: Teams should be fined and penalized for these errors that make a difference in games. These are the playoffs. They can't have clocks that stop or shot clocks that don't work. It is unacceptable. If clocks stop or don't work. They do it over or don't go on until they are fixes. Globe Singular forceFactors matter in this equationCeltics' view quickly in focusThis wasn't a trash dayFL's Take: The Celtics need to keep their emotions under control during this next series. They can't get involved in trash talk with this team. They can't lose their cool. Pierce can't spit at LeBron if he gets frustrated or throw his headband. They have to stick to basketball and let their games do the talking.

Most previews have the Celtics winning in 6 games. They can't think that they can lose a game and then turn it on. They have to play like every game is game 7. ESPN Do you still love the Celtics? FL's Take: I have loved the Celtics since the 60's. I loved the Celtics through the Pitino years. I loved the Celtics through the Chris Wallace years. I loved the Celtics through last year's 18 game losing streak. Why wouldn't I love them now?

Erie Times News Celtics have triple option vs Cavs Patriot Ledger Cavaliers respect Celtics’ traditionsPaul Pierce gets the unenviable assignment of guarding LeBron JamesEnterprise Paul Pierce faces tall task in defending LeBron JamesFL's Take: Pierce can't guard James by himself. The Celtics need to play good team defense on him. They can't get so wrapped up in guarding LeBron as the Cavs have others who can score as well.

He was one of my favorite players when he was in Boston and I hated to see him go. I would love to see him come back to fill an Eddie House roll off the bench. But, right now he is the enemy and a fierce competitor that the Celtics need to watch out for.
