Celtics Beat Post New Entry

Pietrus will show up

He's full of life, and he loves the game of basketball. Pietrus proclaimed a title this season for the Celtics, and that was before the All-Star break when the Celtics were running on  empty. Before  last night's game, Pietrus wanted to come out strong with Rondo out. But  what a rough night for Pietrus. He picked up three fouls in the first three minutes of the game, and he never got it going. Pietrus is the type of bench player that will win you a playoff game. Pietrus did finish with the starting unit, after seeing much time on the bench. 

“I sat him down. The bench calms everyone down,” Rivers said. “He’s an excitable guy. That’s what I like. I like that passion. But I called a timeout. I gave it to a lot of guys and he was one of them. He got frustrated, which is fine.

“I just let him sit for a while, and (assistant coach) Armond Hill was terrific. He went down to see how he was doing, and I was like, ‘Is he ready?’ And Armond said (to) give him another minute. Then Armond went back and talked to him and thought he was ready, and he went back in. Sometimes when you get those early fouls it throws you off a rhythm, and I thought it did that tonight.”


Pietrus had an impactful game. It was his defense in the 4th quarter that saved his night. Pietrus helped saved the season for the Boston Celtics, even though he didn't score the ball. When Rondo comes back, Pietrus will get his. But like I said, Pietrus will win a game for the Celtics. Pietrus has fallen for the rich history of the Celtics. That's why we have fallen for him.

Pietrus will go livid with the home crowd. He adores them.

This is one thing about Rondo's return. He has to shut down Teague. His gambling is fine, but he still has to stay on top of his guy. He is the best defender in the league at his position.
