Game 1 - Sat. April 18, Chicago @ Boston, 12:30 p.m., ESPN (http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/preview?gid=2009041802)




BOSTON (AP)—Doc Rivers laughed. Paul Pierce smiled. The emotional shock of a tough day had worn off for the Boston Celtics.

More than 24 hours had passed since they learned that Kevin Garnett would miss the first round against the Chicago Bulls, and probably the rest of the playoffs, and that general manager Danny Ainge suffered a heart attack that later was described as minor by the team.

The mood had lightened enough Friday for second-year forward Glen “Big Baby” Davis to joke about his role as the replacement for “The Big Ticket,” Garnett’s nickname, in Saturday’s series opener.

“I’m not the Big Ticket. I’m the Ticket Stub,” Davis said with a grin. “So don’t count the Ticket Stub out. You might need the ticket to get into the game, but you leave with the ticket stub because you’ll never forget this game. You need it as a souvenir.”

Celtics will come out on fire with the lost KG. They're on a mission to prove to the league that they still have 2 hall of famers and not to count them out.

I would say sweep, but I'll be a little reserved and say Celtics in 5.

I'm flabbergasted to think half of the 22 voters have picked the Bulls. C'mon!

Yeah but the main concern is the defense right now.
I mean just look at that last Bulls posession. This must not happen in a playoff game! If this keeps up, the Bulls might win this game and the Celtics HCA is gone. The way the Bulls have been playing at the last stretch of the regular season this series could take longer than it should for the Celtics.

Still, it was only the first half of game 1 but they really have to step up defensively

If he's your leading scorer you're in big trouble. D-Rose isn't going to do this every game. Once the C's choose to shut Rose down, it's over. We can lock anyone up. That's why we're the champs.

If he's your leading scorer you're in big trouble. D-Rose isn't going to do this every game. Once the C's choose to shut Rose down, it's over. We can lock anyone up. That's why we're the champs.

you cant stop rose, even rondo isnt as fast as him

It's okay Bulls fans. Us Celtics fans had this same hope all those years we got to the playoffs against better teams. It's good to have pride for your team, but you're not winning. It's that simple.

Not unless Jordan suites up again.

He can be, but that was mostly with Sacramento. He's pretty good at everything, but not outstanding at anything. Right now, I think he's clearly better than Luol Deng.

Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't understand why VDN wasn't using the Noah-Miller frontcourt pair more often. It gives the Bulls a rebounding advantage against virtually every team and they complement each other very well. Noah just owned Big Baby.

This is the worst Salmons has played offensively in a while. He's usually very good, but he's doing an excellent job on Pierce so at least he's doing something in this game.

He does have a groin injury IIRC, so that's probably what's holding him back a little.
