Celtics Insider A. Sherrod Blakely tells you what to expect on Opening Night
The last two years to -- the team rivalry has truly been incidents -- -- we know that. But what about some of these new guys involved in this rivalry this year guys like Rashard Lewis Miami's Courtney Lee Jason Terry for the Celtics I think they'll react on Tuesday night. Think the rivalry is going to be a factor for those guys simply because they were part of me they were all those guys were different teams when they played here or the Celtics. And so for them the Miami Boston battle is not anything big. You know I think it means a lot more -- guys that Rondo and Kevin Garnett -- guys. We've been through these battles a year and you are aware that he. We know about those guys that have been through those battles our players. But secondary guys you know outside of this -- -- -- have a major impact on -- Jeff Green. Having Jeff green is going to be nice to -- X-Factor in game one I think he's going to be the X-Factor throughout the season for the Celtics. He's the one guy that I think night in night out at some point. He's gonna have a mismatch is favorite is up to the Celtics do not only take advantage of that over Jeff Green to keep the aggressive nature -- -- -- pre season and take advantage of those matches when -- favorite. One thing that I think will be an X-Factor is we just don't know which team will come out and eat -- they're getting your greens. On CDs and we've seen in the past teams get blown out there again the -- Do you think out points -- fact I think he's going to be really itself within the play the way they want to because it's it's anonymous that's emotional highs. I mean all the love and add to the gonna get when they get the raise it. -- is going to be there's always embedded Sosa figured out he can get all his people you know in the building for that that night and when it happens resistance from that into playing against a team that hates your guts that's not easy -- obviously. They surrounded the pats have trouble with that elusive -- -- tonight and I think the Celtics in game seven loss have been pointing towards the day. I see him coming out who is. Fired up. They say it's one of 82 but we know -- and try to listen -- is not run to when asked about that he said it's been six months as he's he's hesitant to get over it. They play less than six months ago it which is -- -- -- saying that you know what he hasn't gotten over and I don't think he's alone. -- -- Celtics insider -- rightly them Kyle Draper and Miami for now.
