NBA season preview
An in-depth team-by-team outlook at the upcoming 2009-10 NBA season.
Rasheed Wallace, never one to be bashful, is setting a standard for his new team — the Boston Celtics — that seems completely unattainable. He thinks they can make a run at the Chicago Bulls' 72-win season.
Wallace: Oh definitely. Definitely, playing with those three other guys, also combining that with the guys we have on the bench, I think we definitely can. Me personally, I think we can get that Bulls record. You know we have the talent for it. We have the will for it and ... I think we have the defense for it.
[Thomas Halzack]: Do you want me to use that?
Wallace: You can. Because honestly, I really do feel that. That was a good team. They had some HOFs on there, but we have a few on this team, too.
If we're doing an over/under on 72 — with how competitive the Eastern Conference could be — go ahead and give me the under for the Celtics.
PBT: San Antonio found what worked and it’s on the Grizzlies to raise their level enough in Game 2 in San Antonio on Tuesday to get a split in the series.
PBT: The Pacers were too tough for the Knicks, but Miami is a different animal. The clubs face off in the East finals, starting Wednesday night.
