Celtics vs Pacers Preview

Well later tonight at 6:00 PM the red hot Celtics will take on the Pacers. The celtics sit at 19-2 and at the top of the NBA, while the Pacers and 7-12 and last in the Central Divison. The reason this match up jumps out out me is that the Pacers are one of only two teams that have beat the Celtics this year. That loss being the Celtics worse loss of the season, as they were crushed in Indiana 95-79. This should be an intresting game, here are my projected starting line ups.


C: Kendrick Perkins

FF: Kevin Garnett

SF: Paul Pierce

SG: Ray Allen

PG: Rajon Rondo


C: Rasho Nesterovic

PF: Troy Murphy

SF: Danny Granger

SG: Marquis Daniels

PG: T.J Ford

Injury Report

Boston: Tony Allen, Ankle, Questionable

Indiana: Mike Dunleavy, Knee, Out


I see the Celtics winning this game. Right now the Pacers are struggling and the Celtics have won 11 in a row and are playing Great. Rajon Rondo has really stepped up in the last two games, of course dropping a trible double vs the Pacers and then coming close to another trible double when he dropped 16 points to go along with 8 rebounds and 7 assists. The Celtics right now to be the best team in the league and the Pacers are still trying to fix some problems. I see this game being close but the Celtics winning 96-87.
