Here Come C's Minus K.G?

Kevin Garnett has a calf injury, like the Raptors Andrea Bargnani has an injury to his calf as well. If we see either today it would be a surprise. Celtics will have Rondo this time though which was something they didn't have in the match-up the Raptors won at the ACC. The season series is tied and 1 and will be done by next week with a game today in Toronto and then the two teams hook up again in Boston on Friday. The Raptors continue to be banged up and have players going in and out line-up. It has to be frustrating in terms of this team building any kind of chemistry. Only the Washington Wizards have had more different starting line-ups than the Raptors. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rondo is still a huge challenge for the Raptors. While K.G is the emotional leader of this team without him does not mean doom for them. Least not against the Raptors.

The Basics: Boston 24-7(On 2 Game Losing Streak) vs Toronto 11-21 (3-7 in Last 10)

When Last We Saw Them
: Demar DeRozan was great and the Raptors defence was not. It has a banged up group of Raptors that could only play one solid quarter of defence. DeRozan had a career high 37 in the loss.

Key Match-ups: Ray Allen will give Demar all he can handle. It is a match up of the shooter vs the dunker. Take the shooter in this match-up. Ray Allen will run DeRozan to death on defence. Rajon Rondo owns Jose Calderon there is no other way to put it. A Jose at not 100% has 0 chance to stop Rondo. Amir Johnson vs Glen Davis with no K.G. Johnson seems to be feeling better and he will need to be. As much as we make fun of Glen Davis at times he is a much improved basketball player. He was a 2nd round steal for Celtics like Blair was the Spurs.

Other Things Of Note:
Some of you might have heard I have had a cold but I am feeling close to 100% and will be a go for the Live Blog today on The Score today here is a link to join me.Raptors are just 7-9 at the ACC this season and were 11 games below .500 in the Calender year of 2010 overall.

Where is it on? When?
