3 Things to Watch for in Tonight's Boston Celtics Game

Minnesota's past and future

The Boston Celtics come into this game 9-8 and looking for answers. After blowing a huge lead against the Milwaukee Bucks, let's hope we can rebound.

They play the Minnesota Timbervolves today in the "Kevin Garnett/Greg Stiemsma Bowl". If i recall, since we have had Kevin Garnett, we have not lost at home to these Wolves.

Here are a few things I am looking for in tonight's game.

1. REBOUNDING. I said it in caps because that's how important it is. Kevin Love averages a whopping 14.6 rebounds a game while Andrei Kirilenko (won't play) and Nikola Pekovic average 7.5 a piece. As a team they average 45 rebounds a game. We will have to have every player come in and rebound the basketball. With Rondo back, he will need to get aggressive and pull down the rebounds against their bigs.

2. Defense. Hello, Boston Celtics defense? Are you there? When will our top 3 defense come back? The Timberwolves have been shooting really well lately. With Kevin Love back, the team has a top 10 offense which we will need to shut down in order to win.

3. Rondo is back! I missed him. I will wear my Rondo Jersey today in order to support him! I am mad he didn't get to keep his streak up and pass Mr. 32 of the Lakers (I wanted him to pass him so much). Let's hope Rondo will get back into his groove and get our offense clicking.

PS. Get well soon Brandon Roy. Such a great player and competitor. I was hoping for a good and strong comeback.

PSS. Did anyone see the Lakers collapse last night? If you didn't here are the highlights. Jason Terry's 3 point percentage is higher then Dwight's free throw percentage
