The NBA knows how to work a storyline or two. The Celtics get the Nets and Clippers in back-to-back nights? The Nets game didn't have the pop that it will when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston January, 26th.
"I think it was a setup," a light-hearted Sullinger said. "I think once they saw the trade happen, I think they set it up to have a back-to-back -- former teammates and then former head coach. I think it was all a setup. At the same time, it’s another game. That’s the beauty of the NBA. We took a loss today, but we've got another shot to get another win."
I'm not thrilled that the Celtics could be at a disadvantage against Doc's Clippers, coming off a back-to-back flying in from Brooklyn, which isn't far, it's the point of it all. Regardless of the back-to-back, I feel like the Celtics will have the home crowd to aid the extra gear that the Celtics will need to get through the emotional game Wednesday night.
