Another day, another preview. Considering I'm leaving my job in a couple of weeks, I suddenly don't mind wasting a couple of hours to write it. I mean, what can they do? Besides, their English sucks, so I could tell them I'm writing a mail for my best friend, who nearly drowned scuba-diving in Australia. English for the win.
I'm going to assume that Tim Duncan is going to play, and considering Manu seems to be recovering, I feel good about our chances tonight. The Celtics are one more injury away from starting Mikki Moore, but they still have Paul Pierce, so they're not likely to roll over - and in fact beat the Wade-less Heat in a convincing fashion two days ago, after a pretty good game. Pierce just caught on fire in the 4th and willed his team to victory.
Whatever. We have Finley to guard him.
Before going on, I recommend two articles that seemed to fit the pre-preview spot: 48 Minutes of Hell's interview with the Celtics Hub fellows, which provides some alwasy-interesting insight into the mind of the enemy (their fans, at least), and this nice article on Pop and the Spurs' take on seeding that dfjmed found at NBA.com.
The usual pregame drivel, after the jump:

Some other reading
Celtics fans have two great blogs available, and they have the most imaginative names ever:
Celtics Blog (SB Nation blog. Solid, and makes us look unprofessional and hackish. What else is new?)

Recap: Stampler's recaps are solid, and keep us in the game. ...Much like Tony Parker does for the Spurs. Tee-hee!
