Celtics vs Pistons - at TD Banknorth Garden - Boston, MA.
This one is for the old schoolers who remember those legendary battles with Bill Laimbeer (I called him f---face), Rodman, and Little Lord Fauntleroy.
This renewal of the rivalry has compelling matchups as well:
KG vs the Sheed
Baby/Powe/PJ Brown vs Jason Maxiel (nice fantasy find for me)
Teyshawn vs PP
Rip vs Ray
Billups vs Rondo
Both have deep benches and neither coach is afraid to use them.
Both games this year have been close and the road team has been 2-0.
Winner of this game has a psychological advantage heading toward a potential ECF showdown.
This is a significant milepost on the Celtic Championship Trail of 2008.
