The Celtics took home the win last night in Charlotte. Now, it is time to play a really good team. The Rockets have the best record in the NBA. Fitting that the Celtics must play them on a back-to-back. They've already had to play the most games out of any team by far. If the Celtics can forget about the fact that they just played last night, they should be alright. It'll be a good one.
James MVP Harden:
James Harden is incredible. He truly is. The Celtics can't stop him, no one can. However, they can try to manage him. If the Celtics keep James Harden to 25 points or under, their chances of winning will be far higher. Harden also makes players around him better. The Celtics will need to disrupt the flow of the Houston offense, which runs through Harden. Don't let that one guy beat you.
Big Al had his first 20/10 game in green last night. Let's see if he can do that again, or at least do something similar. Horford is crucial to each and every Celtics win. Especially if they are playing a good team like tonight. Horford will need to have another big performance tonight if the C's want to win two in row.
