At 2-0, the Celtics have been impressive to start the season after dispatching Conference rivals Cleveland and the young up and coming Bulls at home. So far, Boston has proved they still have the hunger to make a run at a repeat with a typical dominating defensive performance against the Bulls last night winning by 16 points, 96-80. So tonight, its the 2nd game of a back to back. They are set to face off against the 1-0 Pacers as they travel on their 1st road game in Indianapolis.
This should be a good game. Indy has acquired TJ Ford and with the continued stellar play of Danny Granger, the C's will be tested against a very young fast break team headed by former Celtics Coach Jim "Obie" O'Brien. The C's will have to stifle the Pacers potent offense and the Pacers will have rebound and capitalize on fast break opportunities against the defending champs!
