Rajon Rondo

Three Players to Watch (Boston Celtics)

The “Three Players to Watch” series is brought to you by the OuttaTownClowns, covering each of the league’s 30 teams providing you with insight on three guys that should demand your attention next season. As you can always expect at the OTC, not every player noted are a team’s top player, instead it may just be a player’s particular situation that’s worth following if you’re a die-hard NBA fan. 

1. Avery Bradley 

Last season proved to be a growing year for Bradley as he became a much more impactful piece to the Celtics puzzle. Provided with more playing time and trust from Head Coach Doc Rivers the Celtics combo guard turned some major weaknesses into some potential strengths this coming season. Having always been a great on-ball defender, Bradley improved his shooting stroke. In specific he showed a more consistent ability to hit the corner three ball and forced defenses to respect his off the dribble midrange game. It’s also worth noting that these are two improvements that “regular season” Rondo has yet to display. While there’s no debate Rondo is far and beyond the better ball handler, Avery is giving his Celtics coaching staff flexibility when it comes to using newly signed veteran Jason Terry. It’s likely Bradley will be given the head nod as the starting shooting guard, allowing Terry to continue to do what he does best as the sixth man. NBA fans should keep a close eye on Avery’s progress next year. He’s the league’s best on-ball defender when pressuring full court and to see him also add an offensive game is a joy to watch if you’re a fan of following player development.

2. Jared Sullinger

Sullinger couldn’t be in a better situation…

Dropping as low as Sullinger did in the draft was huge blessing in disguise for one of the best players college basketball had to offer last season. Getting in with the tradition of Celtics basketball is a perfect fit for the young power forward and being mentored by one of best power forward’s in league history won’t hurt him either. If he can avoid the injuries, Sullinger has a chance to provide a big impact in year one and will be counted upon to contribute on the offensive side of the floor. The Celtics are hoping that he can exceed the level of play of both Brandon Bass and former Celtic Leon Powe combined. Considering what the young big man did at the college level and in Orlando Summer League it looks as it that won’t be too hard to live up too as he begins his journey in the NBA.

3. Kris Joseph

Joseph will get his chance to be a contributor off the Celtics bench

Don’t sleep on this experienced college player who’s proven to be a winner at the college level. Yes, he didn’t have the most impressive college numbers, no he didn’t have the most impressive summer league, but as the current roster stands he will be counted upon to help fill some minutes while the aging Paul Pierce rests. Having a great support system around him in Pierce, Rondo, and Garnett can pay huge dividends in Joseph’s first year success. He definitely will get his chance to prove he not only belongs in the league, but also prove he can provide a positive impact on the team from day one.

2010-11 NBA Preview: Atlantic Division

Boston Celtics (50-32 last season)

Don't let their age fool you, they still have what it takes.

Projected Starting Five:

Point Guard: Rajon Rondo

Shooting Guard: Ray Allen

Small Forward: Paul Pierce

Power Forward: Kevin Garnett

Center: Jermaine O’Neal

Key Reserves:

Guard: Delonte West

Forward: Glen Davis

Center: Shaquille O’Neal

The Celtics are coming off a great year in which they made it to the finals and lost in Game 7.  They were a surprise to everyone in the playoffs as the No. 4 seed while most people thought the Cavaliers or Magic would make it. The key for the Celtics is to stay healthy.  Five players are 32 years of age or older (Allen, Pierce, Garnett, and both O’Neals) and limiting minutes will have to be in the works for Doc Rivers.  The second unit will also have to be fired up most nights because they are a very important part to the success of the team.  If the Celtics want to make another run at the championship, the entire squad must be healthy and whole in April.

New York Knicks (29-53 last season)

Amar'e is "The Man", but Felton could be the key to the offensive.

Projected Starting Five:

Point Guard: Raymond Felton

Shooting Guard: Wilson Chandler

Small Forward: Danilo Gallinari

Power Forward: Amar’e Stoudemire

Center: Timofey Mozgov

Key Reserves:

Guard: Roger Mason Jr.

Guard-Forward: Kelenna Azubuike

Forward: Anthony Randolph

Ok, so no Lebron James for the Knicks, but they did acquire Amar’e Stoudemire who will have to carry this team on his back.  Look for Stoudemire to put up better numbers than he did in Phoenix.  Some people think he won’t play better because Steve Nash is what made him good, but I don’t believe that at all.  Another key addition is spark plug, Raymond Felton.  Felton knows how to win basketball games and will be an improvement from Chris Duhon.  Things are looking up for the Knicks and if Amar’e can stay healthy and his knees don’t give out on him, I believe the Knicks will make the playoffs.

New Jersey Nets (12-70 last season)

Harris and Lopez could be that one, two punch that lead the Nets to victory.

Projected Starting Five:

Point Guard: Devin Harris

Shooting Guard: Anthony Morrow

Small Forward: Travis Outlaw

Power Forward: Troy Murphy

Center: Brook Lopez

Key Reserves:

Guard: Jordan Farmar

Guard-Forward: Terrence Williams

Forward: Derrick Favors

Avery Johnson is looking to turn things around for this young New Jersey team.  They aren’t going to blow you away with their offense, so defense must show up for them to win games.  Brook Lopez and Devin Harris are the most important players on the team and having them healthy all season will sway this group into a possible playoff berth.  The Nets will need an incredible season to reach the playoffs but anything can happen.  Give them another couple years, let Derrick Favors get some seasons under his belt and be ready for a powerful Nets team in the future.

Philadelphia 76ers (27-55 last season)

A star in college now has to learn to take a supporting role.

Projected Starting Five:

Point Guard: Jrue Holiday

Shooting Guard: Andre Igoudala

Small Forward: Thaddeus Young

Power Forward: Elton Brand

Center: Spencer Hawes

Key Reserves:

Guard: Evan Turner

Guard: Louis Williams

Forward: Andres Nocioni

The first thing that comes to mind when I look at this starting five is that there isn’t a solidified shooter.  Andre Igoudala is probably their best shooter and he isn’t very reliable from outside.  Either Jason Kapono or Jodie Meeks will need to earn a spot in the rotation and provide for them what Kyle Korver used to.  This is a fairly young team and the faster Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner develop their offensive games, the better the Sixers will be.  Elton Brand is a team chemistry destroyer, and this is why I do not see the 76ers having a great season.

Toronto Raptors (40-42 last season)

Can Bargnani show the fans of Toronto why they drafted him number one?

Projected Starting Five:

Point Guard: Jarrett Jack

Shooting Guard: DeMar DeRozen

Small Forward: Linas Kleiza

Power Forward: Reggie Evans

Center: Andrea Bargnani

Key Reserves:

Guard: Jose Calderon

Guard: Leandro Barbosa

Forward: Amir Johnson

The Raptors had a terrible offseason losing Hedo Turkoglu and Chris Bosh.  Their whole team is mixed up and they will most likely be one of the worst teams in the league.  The only positive feeling I can say about this team is that things can only go up after the season starts.  One of their young players will certainly need to step forward with a larger role.  I see that player to be Andrea Bargnani.  He was a number one overall pick and has a really good skill set.  Also look for the Raptors to possibly pick up a star closer towards the trade deadline thanks to their Bosh trade exception.  

NBA Finals Game 7 Preview

Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers- 9 ET ABC

Who will get it?

After what can be summed up as a very disappointing year for the NBA Playoffs, the Finals have been far from a let down. Tonight this year’s champion will be decided by one final game in Los Angeles. It’s been a rollercoaster of a series with both team’s having faced their ups and downs.

Game 1: It was Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol who led the Lakers to a victory in the opening game of the series.

Game 2: Ray Allen connected on 8 of 11 three-pointers and Rajon Rondo recorded a triple-double which helped the Celtics head back to Boston with a split series, swinging home court advantage in their favor.

Game 3: Celtics’ Game 2 hero Ray Allen shot 0-13 from the field scoring only 2 points that he earned from his only trip to the charity stripe. Allen’s disappointing performance played a huge role in why the Lakers came away with a big Game 3 win on the road. The loss showed just the league just how important Ray Allen’s contributions are to the Celtics success in big games.

Game 4: Glen Davis and Nate Robinson provided the much needed spark and production off the Celtics bench leading their team to the crucial bounce back win at home. Tying up the series at two games apiece.

Game 5: Kobe Bryant’s 38 points wasn’t enough for the Lakers to earn the victory on the road which would’ve given them a commanding 3-2 series lead heading back home for the remainder of the series.

Game 6: Down but not out, the Lakers recovered back at home when faced with elimination. Unfortunately for the Celtics, they experienced an early buzz-kill losing starting center Kendrick Perkins to a knee injury. The Lakers held control of the lead throughout the entire game.

The Boston bench will need a big night from Big Baby and Nate if they are going to come out on top.

Game 7: With both teams one win away from taking ownership of this year’s Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy, you can best be sure it’ll be a battle down to the end. For the fifth time in their twelve NBA Finals meetings the Celtics and the Lakers are faced with a Game 7 matchup. Going into tonight’s matchup the Celtics must overcome all odds. Not only are they on the road for the biggest game of the year but they’ll be without Kendrick Perkins. While Perkins may not be the most prolific scorer, his toughness on both ends and defensive presence will most definitely be missed. It’ll be interesting to see just how Doc Rivers decides to approach the Lakers size down low with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol.

I’m totally against the idea of starting Glen Davis tonight and instead I’m going with Rasheed Wallace. Sheed has been everything but impressive all season long, but these are the types of games a guy like Rasheed Wallace steps up. He’s a proven veteran whose been faced with similar circumstances before, he’s not afraid of attacking the tasks at hand, and being that he’s at the end of his career he’ll lay it all out on the line for the entire 48 minutes.

It’ll be especially important that Rasheed Wallace and the rest of his Celtics team get out to an early jump. You cannot play from behind inside the Staples Center, instead you must force the Lakers hand to keep up with you. That most likely will be decided as the first quarter nears the four minute mark as we begin to see both coaches turning to their benches. If the Celtics bench can come up big tonight, the Celtics have a chance. If not, I see Kobe Bryant determining the fate of his Lakers team and when it’s for all the marbles, I’ll go with Kobe.

A Celtics win will occur if Rajon Rondo has a fantastic overall night and if the Celtics bench can provide the much needed spark and scoring load.

A Lakers win will occur if Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol play up to their standard. Obviously, the chances of this happening is much more likely than the Celtics bench being able to produce to the level needed to have a chance.

Behind a brilliant performance from Kobe Bryant the Los Angeles Lakers will be crown the 2010 NBA Champions with Kobe Bryant taking home the Finals MVP honor.

Lakers- 107 Celtics- 101

Smile, Kobe. You won the title and are Finals MVP

Lakers vs. Celtics – NBA Finals Game 5

By: James Sargent

Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics – 8 ET ABC

Game 4 was a gritty performance by Glen “Big Baby” Davis and Nate Robinson.  Doc Rivers left the bench in a little longer than he normally does in the fourth quarter against the Laker’s starters and the move was ingenious.  Davis and Robinson were unconscious and could not be stopped, and this was a good kind of unconsciousness for Davis.  If the Celtics want to head to LA with a 3-2 lead, the bench is going to need to step it up again and provide another spark.  This will be a very tough task to ask for because with each new game comes new counter strategies and ways to stop previous occurrences.  The Celtics will definitely need two of the “Big Three” and Rajon Rondo to have a steady game.

Shrek and Donkey could be the reason for another Laker meltdown

As for the Lakers, Kobe was shutdown in the fourth quarter and Andrew Bynum was hit with another knee injury, limiting him to only 12 minutes of play.  Bryant was pestered by many different Celtic defenders who held him to only two field goals in that pivotal fourth quarter.  Kobe said he felt miserable after the game and Phil Jackson said Kobe was very tired.  Could Bryant be going back into the funk he was in at the end of the season?  I don’t think so.  I believe with the two days off, Bryant will be rejuvenated and ready to bring his “A” game like he usually brings.

Pau Gasol will bring his usual intensity to the court and continue to reek havoc on the Celtic’s frontcourt.

Rajon Rondo will record an “almost” triple-double by scoring in double figures and having double digit assits, but he will only reach about 5-7 rebounds.

Now, I asked my dad to get his thoughts on the game, and I am going to stick with what he had to say.  Celtics need a must win since winning two in LA is very unlikely.  Also, Ray Allen is going to hit some three pointers and get back to his shooting ways.

Celtics- 97 Lakers- 94

NBA Finals Game 4 Preview

Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics- 9 ET ABC

Rondo will come up big with his back against the wall tonight

Before the series began I predicted the Celtics to win the NBA Finals over the Lakers in six games. After dropping Game 3 at home, that prediction looks a little unreal having to win three straight against the Lakers. But as series shifted to Boston, I felt the Celtics would win 2 of the 3 games. Going into Game 4, I’m sticking to that prediction which would it a 3-2 series in Boston’s favor heading back to Los Angeles for the final two games.

Tonight, I fully expect Rajon Rondo to dazzle us all yet again like he did in Game 2 with a triple-double performance. And finally expect Paul Pierce, who has been a huge disappointment thus far, to step up tonight in a critical Game 4.

Mark My Words: If the Celtics lose one of the next two games, the series is over. They can only hope to win one of two in Los Angeles, so these next two home games are key to having any chance in becoming the 2010 NBA Champions. As for tonight, the Celtics veterans will show just why they’ve been champions before and will continue to work towards showing the league that again this year.

Celtics- 102 Lakers- 100

Lakers vs. Celtics- Game 3 NBA Finals

Los Angeles Lakers at Boston Celtics – 9 ET ABC

These two must combine for a big night

It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about a specific play or team, but when you choose to shoot the three-pointer you ultimately live or die by it. In Game 2, behind Ray Allen’s record-breaking 8 three-point field goals made, the Celtics lived by the three. As a team they knocked down 11 of 16 attempts (nearly 70%), as for the Lakers well, they died by it at home, connecting on just 5 of their 22 attempts from long range.

One of the best parts of the majority of the past NBA Finals is that each game in the best-of-seven series often times offers new challenges, which forces teams to make improvised adjustments almost on the fly. The Lakers must be concerned as they step out on the floor for tonight’s Game 3 matchup. While the Lakers are currently the reigning champs, their chances to defend that title will drastically improve or crumble in Game 3. It’s important to note unlike the first three rounds of the NBA Playoffs, the NBA Finals schedule is much different. The Celtics (technically) have the chance to close out this series in Boston without ever having to return to Los Angeles. The next three games are in Boston, which gives this experienced Celtics team a huge opportunity to finish their business.

The Truth will be told in Game 3, expect a big night from him

A Game 3 win for Boston means a commanding lead in the series as they’ll continue to maintain their momentum. On the other hand, a big Game 3 win for Los Angeles guarantees that them that the series will shift back to the west coast. The sooner the Lakers get that win, they better they’ll feel going into the rest of the games in Boston. Tonight, expect the Celtics to continue to control momentum. Ray Allen played out of his mind in Game 2, but Paul Pierce was nearly non-existent contributing on the offensive end of the floor. Pierce will be ready to go tonight and he along with Rajon Rondo won’t disappoint on their home floor.

Celtics- 99 Lakers- 91

Hopefully, Big Baby doesn’t get knocked out yet again….

NBA Finals Game 2 Preview

Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers- 8 ET ABC

By now you’ve probably already read the pregame posts from other news sources around the web, so here at the OuttaTownClowns preview of Game 2 we’re going to shake things up. Much like this post, I believe the Celtics will also shake things up that will lead towards shaping up this series as 1-1 series heading back to Boston. Here’s my Top 5 Boston wins Game 2 Guarantees: (At least 2 of the following 5 must happen)

1. Celtics bench scores more points than Ron Artest and/or Derek Fisher & Andrew Bynum combined

2. Rajon Rondo nearly records triple-double

3. Paul Pierce & Kevin Garnett combine for 48 points or more

4. Ray Allen hits 4 or more three-pointers

5. Celtics’ defense holds Kobe Bryant under 30 points

Of those five, I see #1 & #3 happening tonight inside the Staples Center, Boston comes up big with a win in Game 2.

Boston- 103 Lakers- 98

Even to this day, NBA fans can’t believe it either Phil…

2010 NBA Finals Game 1 Preview

Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Lakers- 9 ET ABC

Being a man who possesses an ultimate passion for the NBA game, it’s always quite ironic that the NBA Finals begins a day or two before or after my birthday on June 4th. This year it falls just one day short of being the perfect present, but for good reason. While this NBA Finals should be an interesting one, it’s all but what I would’ve hoped for.

While I could be crazy, I truthfully believe the day my team makes the NBA Finals, the NBA will just so happen to start the series on my special day which will surely be a sign to what’s to come.

But nonetheless, this year’s NBA Finals is battle amongst two teams with a great history, the Celtics vs. the Lakers.

Can Kobe earn that first ring wearing #24?

The Lakers led behind arguably the best player in the game, Kobe Bryant. A championship season would bring Kobe his fourth ring and the all-so-important first ring without Shaquille O’Neal.

The Celtics led behind long-time team catalyst, Paul Pierce. Let “The Truth” be told, if Pierce can capture his second ring, he must go down as one of the greatest Celtics of all-time. Many might even argue that Pierce has already earned that honor, but a second ring definitely solidifies it.

Throughout this year’s playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers have been nearly unstoppable at home. For them to really give themselves a shot at winning the series, they really need to protect their home court in the opening two games of the series. The Celtics have done a great job stealing road games, swinging home court advantage their way, and then never looking back. I believe it’s the Celtics year to win it all if they’re able to take one of two in Los Angeles, sending a split series back to Boston.

Paul Pierce will continue to be the Paul Pierce we’ve come to know. Kevin Garnett will need to do a heck of a job on Pau Gasol. Ray Allen will help lead the charge in delivering the daggers from outside the perimeter, and Rajon Rondo will have his official, “OMG, Coming Out Party”.

Go Ahead: Roll Out the Red Carpet, It's Time for Rondo's Coming Out Party, Finals MVP Here He Comes

I predict that Rondo will be the difference maker in the series, he’ll tally a couple triple-doubles, and be the deciding factor that helps his Boston Celtics team take the Lakers down in 6 games. If the Celtics win the NBA Championship, then Rajon Rondo will win the Finals MVP Award.

If I’m dead wrong and the Lakers come out on top, I see the Finals MVP going to the Kobe Bryant’s running mate, Pau Gasol. But let’s get one thing straight, the Celtics realize this is their final stand as a group on the brink of claiming yet another NBA title together. Next year, regardless to their NBA Finals success, this team will be broken up. Of all the Celtics that know what’s currently at stake is Kevin Garnett. Having already neared and arguably passed his prime, Garnett’s hungry for one more ring that he’ll earn with his significant contributions. One last time for “The Big Ticket” to seriously be a big ticket on the biggest stage, if he needs any motivation, my advice to him would to be look at Rasheed Wallace. Sheed was in a similar position a few years back with the Pistons. With a much more experienced Celtics bench, I think they’ll get the job done, even if it’s on the road in Game 1.

Lakers-Celtics Rivalry Top 10 Plays

Orlando Magic @ Boston Celtics- Game 6 Eastern Conference Finals

Orland vs. Boston- 8:30 ET on ESPN

If the Magic win, Orlando and Disney will once again be the happiest place on earth.

Resident NBA nut Ross Geiger has the day off, so I, Patrick McWeeny, am here to drop some knowledge for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Celtics had it all early in the series. Suffocating defense, a revived Kevin Garnett, a rampant Rajon Rondo, and everything else that came with a dominating and command 3-0 lead. The Magic stole one in overtime in Game 4, as Dwight Howard and Jameer Nelson remembered that you are supposed to put the ball in the basket, Vince Carter notwithstanding, and most of us were just waiting for the C’s to come back to Orlando and do the deed. However, something funny happened along the way. Orlando got back to playing nearly as well as they were in their first two series, hitting threes, and getting gargantuan performances out of Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, and extremely solid production out of JJ Redick. The Magic rolled in Game 5 behind some shaky officiating and just general bounces in the Magic’s favor. Could the Magic pull one out of the hat? No team has ever come back from down 3-0 to win a series in the NBA, and the Magic cannot win the series tonight, only lose it, but momentum certainly seems to be on Orlando’s side. Do you go with momentum or experience? The hot hand, or the team that has been better most of these playoffs (The Celtics, despite the Magics two sweeps)?

Personally, I go with experience over the hot hand. All that has to happen for the hot hand to go dead cold are some bad bounces or an unfriendly rim. Experience is there forever, and as long as the players can still execute, it is invaluable. The only thing that can interrupt experience would be injuries, so I will obviously pick the Cel… wait… this just in, the Celtics sustained 50 injuries in Game 5. Glen Davis has been cleared to play but he will not be what he was in Game 5. Rasheed Wallace’s back is not going to help his post defense at all, and Marquis Daniels got a head injury as well. If Kendrick Perkins’ phony technical foul had not been rescinded, it would be Code Red for Boston. They are going to need every big body they can get to defend/foul Dwight Howard.

I cannot believe what I am about to write, and it will probably be the only time is has been written in human history. Brian Scalabrine is a key for the Celtics. (Gasp) Not like that. The Celtics need big man help, and that means that all their big men, everyone from Kevin Garnett to Shelden Williams, must step up, hustle, box out, and defend Dwight Howard with dogged determination. If Scal so happens to play, I will gladly take credit, but he has not been dressing so I cannot put him down for a key role, but the C’s need a big game out of the Scalabrine-esque big men. They don’t need scoring, they need toughness and hustle, which is what Brian Scalabrine can bring. I do not know if he will dress, but I have hunch about Scal, so take it for what it is worth. Regardless, the C’s need big performances down low to slow down the Magic and I urge them to channel their inner Brian Scalabrine.

Scalabrine 1, Malone+Stockton+Barkley 0

Boston needs a good game out of Rondo if they are going to avoid history.

On the less insane side, you have Rajon Rondo back at home where he hopes pick up his incredible form of Games 1-3, and some home cooking for big-game-beast Paul Pierce. The Magic might be looking to pull a rabbit out of their hat, but Boston knows the Truth will be able to cut through the Magic’s illusions. When you are a little banged up and in a corner, there are two things a team can do: They can band together for a night and man up, or they can roll over and give up. I think the Celtics will do the first of those, at least for tonight. Look for 25 out of Pierce with a solid performance out of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in this pivotal Game 6. I do not think Rondo will run over Magic like they did in the first few games, but he should do a good job of involving his teammates and running the team. Look for something along the lines of 11 points, 6 rebounds and 12 assists out of the Black Leprechaun. Dwight Howard will have his 20 points and Jameer will pitch in almost 20, but I sense a clunker for Vince Carter and Rashard Lewis  as the Orlando’s magical run (pun intended) comes to an end.

Of course, if the Celtics have converted to regular season Celtics, the Boston will have the Bruins and Celtics give away 3-0 leads and the teams will never hear the end of it. They will win.

Magic 89, Celtics 94

Ask everyone’s favorite Celtic if Kendrick Perkins is important.

5/26/10 Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic (Game 5) Predictions

Boston Celtics at Orlando Magic- 8:30 ET ESPN

Carter can't fall on his head yet again offensively in Game 5

The Boston Celtics really shot themselves in the foot on Sunday night as they were unable to close out the series sweep at home. Coming through big with an overtime win facing elimination, the Magic now have a heartbeat, but down 3 games to 1, they’re still on life support. If Orlando can take care of business tonight in Game 5, they’ve shockingly put themselves in a position where they’re able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

As good as he’s been all season and especially since the start of the playoffs, expect a big time game from Rajon Rondo tonight. Rondo struggled in Game 4 and his lack of contributions helped the Magic pull out the big win. But it’d be wrong if no kudos went out to Jameer Nelson, he came up huge in the win or go home road game. With all do respect to Dwight Howard and his impressive performance, player of the game must go out to Nelson. He not only shut down Rondo, but all of his 23 points were huge. Down the stretch he nailed a handful of tough shots that ultimately determined the fate of his team.

In Game 5, the Orlando Magic fans will increase the optimism in the eyes of their players. Can Orlando really pull off the “magic” and take four games in a row? It’s crazy to imagine it happening, but a win tonight gets them that much closer to reality. Win tonight and survive just one more game in Boston and we’ll be seeing a NBA Finals decisive Game 7. Get it done Orlando, the NBA world wants to see it!

Magic- 100 Celtics- 93

Though I did some media work inside the NBA Locker Rooms this year, I never ever came close to seeing something like this. Jason Williams demands his space! This was after losing Game 3 in Boston:
