Today the guys in green (Boston Celtics) stepped onto the court at their training facility in Waltham, MA for their daily practice. The Celtics were without head coach Doc Rivers, who was dealing with some sort of personal issue. Tom Thibodeau was the man in charge for today's practice.
According to Mr. Reliable, Chris Forsberg, the Celtics prepared for Wednesday's game against Miami as if they would be without Rajon Rondo and Paul Pierce.
Via Chris Forsberg:
Celtics preparing as if Rondo, Pierce, and KG will not be available Wednesday. Pierce expected to update his progress tomorrow.
I can only assume that the Celtics will role out a similar lineup to that of which they used Saturday against Toronto. The only change may be replacing J.R Giddens in the starting lineup, with whom, I really don't know. I do expect to see Giddens get some quality time of the bench. From what we saw Saturday though, this guy is no where near being a legitimate starter.
For now I guess we just cross our fingers and hope one of these guys (Pierce or Rondo) will be on the floor Wednesday. If not the Celtics will need to use another total team effort to beat another playoff contending team, the Miami Heat. UMBUNTU lives on......
