'On the edge'
Who's on the edge? The Celts? Or the fan base? Answer: Both. A nightmare
scenario is unfolding
. The Celts are now riddled with big-guy injuries and a probable suspension going into Game 6. ... The most telling statistic: 31. That's how many points the Magic made in the first quarter. The key to Celtics' previous wins was defense in the early minutes, allowing them to build up a lead before games tightened up. Now they're tight at the start, allowing the Magic to pull away at the end. The Celts tomorrow night probably won't have their full contingent of big guys tag-teaming an increasingly more confident Dwight. It doesn't look good. Not good at all. ...
Doc recently said that Nate Robinson would win a game for the Celts before the playoffs were done. Tomorrow night would be nice, Nate. Tomorrow night. But I'm not counting on it.
