C’s vs. Mav’s Preview

The C’s take on the Mavericks tonight and it should be quite a game. Not for the normal reasons though. Usually, both teams are on top of their divisions, or close to it, but not this time. So far the Mavs are 11-10 while the Celtics are 11-9. However, they have an excuse, with Dirk Nowitzki being out all season. We have had the luxury of having most guys healthy (except Rondo missing 2 and a half games), but still can’t seem to click.

Mayo has taken over the scoring lead in Dallas, averaging 20.8 PPG. Dallas is currently riding a 3 game winning streak, where Mayo dropped 40 points against the Rockets and 23 against the Suns.

For the C’s, Pierce leads the way with 19.2 PPG while Garnett is averaging 16.0 and Rondo puts in 13.0 of his own to go along with 12.8 assists. The game is at the Garden tonight at 8:00 PM. Go Celts
