It’s a very simple message to the Celtics if they’re going to shut everyone up and get back on track.
Aside from Rondo cutting back on the gambling on Derrick Rose (something he admits to) there’s no special defense to play on the Bulls rookie. Just make the rotations. Play defense like you’re used to playing defense. On offense, you play like you’ve always played. We’ve been saying since the final buzzer on Saturday… and the Celtics, and Paul Pierce, were saying it after practice yesterday
“After watching tape, we didn’t play well at all and still had a chance to win. I thought we had a real good practice and had a chance to clean up some things. Just really stick with our game plan, we aren’t going to change up our game plan.
Paul pretty much stuck to the same message when talking about getting Ray open
“Our job is to get him open. He’s one of the deadliest shooters to ever play the game, so we have to do a better job of get him open. Despite all that, we still had our chances. The bigs and even myself have to set screens for him, because that’s what we’ve done for him all year. It has to come from all of us.”
Pretty simple stuff. Do what you’ve done all year and you’ll beat the Bulls. Then maybe all the people panicking can shut up.
