The Celtics just the beat the Heat are now getting ready to face the Kings. The Kings are just 17-29 and third-to-last place in the conference. The Celtics, after their great win on Sunday, are 21-23 and eighth place in the eastern conference. Tonight will also be the Celtics second game without Rondo, so they'll need to find a replacement for him who can produce. That's number five on today's five things, here are the other four:
4. KEEP GETTING GREAT EFFORT FROM SULLINGER:
Despite not scoring a ton, Jared Sullinger played terrific on Sunday. If a few more passes went his way, he would've scored more. We'll just have to sit back and relax with this guy because we know that he'll do awesome.
3. KEEP GETTING GREAT EFFORT FROM BARBOSA:
Leandro Barbosa, while attempting to fill in for Rondo, came out with his best game of the season on Sunday. Barbosa, according to ABC's commentators, was the Celtics MVP of the first half. He needs to do that again.
2. HOPE PIERCE PLAYS WELL AGAIN:
If Paul Pierce can play the way he did against the Heat, the Celtics will win. He was very clutch but still hasn't quite turned it around. A good game tonight would complete that.
1. TRY HARD:
They have some momentum, they need to keep it. If they play lazy tonight then the Heat game would turn out as a huge waste of time. Tonight, in my opinion, is a must win game.
Tip-off for tonight's game will be at 7:30 pm ET. Live Game Updates will be available here.
