Some consolation

The only redeeming thing about the Pistons’ loss to the Knicks was that it happened to coincide with back-to-back Celtic defeats at the hands of the Wizards.

DeShawn Stevenson made me forget about Gil Arenas tonight—it doesn’t seem like that should be happening. Plus, Caron Butler was hugemondez down the stretch. But, otherwise, the Wizards didn’t play exceptionally well. They were great from the line, and Haywood continues to look better than ever (is this a contract year?) but they just did enough to hang around and then hit big shots when it mattered.

Tonight I was openly rooting against the Celtics. The way I root against Ohio State. Not because of any animosity towards the players—as a matter of fact, I can’t think of one guy on the squad that I dislike individually. But where in past years I wanted the Cs to do well because I live in Boston and enjoy watching good basketball, now we’re in the midst of a pretty legitimate rivalry for tops in the East. There’s a lot less room to be sympathetic to the other side.

I think Sheed goes for 30 tomorrow.

    I thought stuckey was looking better in the last few games… that is hopeful. And at least we got to watch amir play. oh wait, stuckey was 1-5, at least he wasn’t getting blocked.

    It could be worse. You could be a New Englander living in North Jersey. Actually, the past few years have been great. I loved it when the Yanks fell apart, and the Red Sox continued their dominance.

    Now, I’m loving the C’s dominate (couple hiccups lately), while the Knicks team advertise visiting Celtics games on the major radio stations around here.
