The Celtics are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Pistons. Tonight, they will host the Spurs as they look to bounce back. Here are five things that they must do to win tonight:
5. GET LEE INVOLVED:
Courtney Lee was forgotten in Detroit. He took just two shots the whole game, with both being three-pointers. He made one of them, but 3 points isn't a good night. This guy has potential and talent, but his team isn't using it.
4. LESS TURNOVERS:
The C's turned the ball over 17 times Sunday night. They just need to be smarter with the ball. They wasted a lot of possessions Sunday.
3. MORE REBOUNDS:
The Celtics rarely out-rebound their opponent, but in Detroit they were pathetic. The Pistons out-rebounded Boston 39-30. Both teams had 7 offensive rebounds, but the Pistons led in defensive rebounds, 32-23. Get the big guys to be more aggressive.
2. KEEP RONDO HOT:
Rondo has been on fire lately. He was able to continue his steak of consecutive games with double-digit assists with 10 in his last game. Against Toronto, he had 20 assists. Just hope he does what he's capable of doing.
1. OUTSCORE THE SPURS:
If you score more points than your opponent, then you will always win. Score at least one more point than San Antonio tonight and you will be 7-5.
Tip-off is at 7:30 pm ET. Coverage will be here at Celtics Green, and from me at Panktics Blog. Enjoy it.
