Outlook

  • Ben Wallace is questionable. I’d love to see him back tonight.
  • Check out my thoughts on Jason Maxiell in today’s Daily Dime ( No. 8 ).
  • Celtics Hub has a nice preview on the game. Brian Robb, like many Boston and Detroit fans, is down on his team. The Celtics are 41-24. The Pistons are 23-43. I say this in the nicest way possible, but shut up Boston fans.
  • Join me in Daily Dime Live during the game. It will be a blast.
