nothing but big gooses in here, kid

11/2/05 - game 1:
celtics 114
knicks 100 (ot)

05'-'06 campaign: 1-0

larry who? larry what?
(really real though, even auerbach gave dude his props in the post-game. while giving the backhand to the zen master ("...he picks his spots. larry brown, great coach, doesn't pick his spots."). i still hate l.a. too, red.)

your 2005-2006 boston celtics won the season opener the only way they know how: ugly. contrary to preseason returns, pierce was the focal point of the offense, turning in a mad decent 30-12-3. can't be mad at the redheaded kingpin for a jaw-dropping debut in the starting role at the point (looking past the line, 41 minutes, 1 turnover = presidential shit). pretty ricky rebounded from a somewhat horrawful first half to end up with 27 point, albeit on an iversonian 10-for-22. mark blount (drop that "u" when you say the name, he's serious, swear to god) looked real good for a corpse despite making almost all of his points from 12 feet or more away from the hoop. those are the positives.

but that's about where it ends. i'm not thrilled about them blowing a late 4th lead...too reminscient of last year's problems. ricky and paul seem destined yet again to bang heads over who takes the ball in winning time. also, pierce won't be getting 1304 attempts from the line every game. it's almost impossible to tell how the rotation will work because doc hasn't seen fit to consider things like substitution patterns and minute distribution. interior defense was fairly fucki-...we'll just gloss over that.

saying though, delonte.

next up: pistons on friday.
