I can't expect another great defensive effort out of the Celtics following a game where everything came so easily for them on the offensive end. They scored 118 points on Friday night on 58% shooting. They tried 24 three-pointers and hit half of them! They won going away against the Bulls so why hunker down on defense again after shooting lights out like that?
The Celtics go as their Big Three go, and those guys, Garnett, Pierce, and Allen, shot a crazy 65% in that game. They'll be more likely to let their offense lead the way again.
I went over 184.
