Celtics 24/7

Celtics vs. Bulls Pregame Notes

The Celtics match-up against the Bulls is a pivotal game.  Celtics enter game with 2 straight losses.  Fridays night loss vs. the Raptors was described as an “un-celtic” game by Doc. The Bulls will play without Rose (back) today, which provides a greater opportunity to sneak a win against one of the top teams in the East.

Injury notes for the Celtics:

  • J.O. will miss his 2nd straight game with a knee/shoulder injury.  O’Neal’s shoulder injury came on a dunk vs. the Lakers on Thursday proving he can’t do nice things without getting hurt
  • Avery Bradley is “full-strength” after dealing with shoulder pain the past two games
  • Brandon Bass is out with a sore knee, and could miss up to 10 games.

With Bass and J.O. out, Wilcox gets the start.  This will test our already thin depth of big men.  I assume J. Johnson will get important minutes.


I’ll do another post after the game, you can follow along with my in-game tweets @KimSherayko
