Chris Forsberg thinks Glen Davis vs. Anderson Varejao will be the series’ most important matchup. The way Varejao has killed the Celtics so far this season, it’s difficult to disagree.
Davis respects and admires everything Varejao brings to the table, but isn’t afraid. In fact, he predicts a big series for himself. (ESPNBoston)
“I’ve already got a chip on my shoulder because it’s the playoffs and everybody is surprised when I play well,” said Davis. “Well, everyone is going to be surprised by what you see out of me this series.”
I don’t care what the Celtics get out of Davis offensively. I don’t care if he doesn’t score a single point and gets his shot punched halfway to China every time he attempts a layup.
As long as Davis keeps Varejao off the glass and matches his boundless energy, I will be very, very pleased.
