Just a brief preview for tonight, guys. By the time you read this, I’ll be on my way back home for Easter. (With a quick pit-stop to get my Hedo Turkoglu on, of course. No, not partying. Eating pizza. At Joe’s Pizza in Northampton, MA. Their ‘za is beyond tasty. My mouth is watering now, just thinking about it.)
Since I’ll be on the road soon, I’m just going to give you three points about the game.
- Celtics could really use a win - Two-game losing streak. Cleveland next, on Sunday. Playoffs coming soon. Do I need to tell you how much Boston could use a win tonight against Houston?
- Nate Robinson, where have you been? – Nate has scored three total points during his last three games, and hasn’t scored in double figures since March 12. Wherever you’re hiding, Nate, Olly Olly Oxen Free.
- Declining Rockets – The Rockets have lost five of their past six games, and now sit directly on the .500 marker. Of the Houston Chronicle’s last two Rockets columns, one is titled “Adelman admits defensive decline,” and the other is “Rockets find themselves guilty of impatient offense.” Not a lot is going right for the Rockets, and let’s hope the Celtics keep it that way.
