Game 3 of a 5 game road trip against the 2-2 Boston Celtics. As you can see from the stats above, Ricky Davis and Paul Pierce are almost a two man team, and when you look at their reserves they are basically relying all on their starters. Boston is a turnover prone team, but they do pass the ball around pretty well, and they are a team that lives at the free throw line. Pierce is a hard guy to stop, but if you can limit him in someway then I like our chances. I'm a little concerned that the Spurs might play another sloppy game, because they surely won't win this game playing like they did on Wednesday. I'm not getting a good vibe about this game, but I think it's been awhile since Boston beat San Antonio.

As long as Spurs stop EITHER Ricky Davis or Paul Pierce, they should take it. Besides PP and Davis, I really don't see anyone no the Celts roster who can really score. Also Spurs need to attack early, and not let the Celts get on a early run or let the fans get into the game. So my prediction would be: Spurs 89, Celts 81.
