Gotta admit, I was tired of the Cavs taking some of our spotlight with their petty 11-game winning streak. That ended last night, thanks to the Atlanta Hawks.
The Celtics put their 14-game streak on the line Monday night at home against the Jazz. Utah maybe 15-10 but they have an unimpressive 5-6 road record.
Quick question, is there room on the roster for Dikembe Mutombo? Here’s the latest from Marc Spears:
The Celtics have the maximum 15 players and would have to waive one to make room for Mutombo. While Boston’s starting center spot is solidified with Kendrick Perkins, his backups include seldom-used Patrick O’Bryant and undersized Leon Powe and Glen Davis. The Celtics have not replaced the veteran experience and length that free agent P.J. Brown brought late last season and have interest in Mutombo, but have not offered him a contract.
“The way Boston is playing right now with [Kevin Garnett], Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen, the team is heading in a direction toward winning another championship,” Mutombo said. “It will be interesting if I made the decision to go there. It would be very good. I’ve been to the Finals twice [with Philadelphia and New Jersey]. I got close, but I walked away empty-handed. Maybe going to Boston would give me a chance to win.
I don’t see it happening.
Sorry for the short post – just found out I got power back at the house. Ice storms suck.
