[Discuss on CG Forums!] The Celtics, after their big win in Chicago, head back to the Garden tonight to host the Utah Jazz. This won't be noticeable, but earlier today the C's sent Kris Joseph and Fab Melo down to the D-League. So if you for some reason thought they would play, they won't. Here are today's five things that the Celtics must do to win tonight: 5. GET JEFF GREEN TO SHOOT BETTER: This is something that the team can't control. Jeff Green, as we've all noticed, has not been the best shooter on Earth so far this season. In the offseason, Green signed a huge 4 year/$36 miilion deal. I'm starting to feel like he has been greatly over-payed. I don't want the rest of Celtics fans to feel this way. 4. HOPE PIERCE HAS A GOOD DAY: I'm starting to feel like I'm the only one who notices this. Paul Pierce is one of then greatest Celtics players of all time, and the best scorer of the current team. But you can never tell if he will have a good game or a bad game. In Milwaukee, he had twenty-five points on eight of eighteen shooting. In Chicago, he only had ten points on four of thirteen shooting. He's been on this pattern all year, we hope that it will continue tonight, since he wasn't that good against the Bulls. 3. GET AHEAD EARLY: In the last "Five Things" post, I said that the Celtics should just stay in the game so that they can pull it out in the fourth. But in this one, I'm gonna say that they should just get ahead early and stay ahead. 2. HAVE RONDO DO WHAT HE DOES: This one isn't complicated. Rajon Rondo is very capable of getting a near triple-double or just a triple-double. If he can do that tonight, the Celtics' chances of winning will increase greatly. 1. OUTSCORE THE JAZZ: This one takes no explaining. In almost every sport, the team who scores more will win. If the C's are able to score at least one more point than Utah, they will win. It's guaranteed. Tip-off for tonight's game is at 7:30 pm ET. Coverage will be available here are at Celtics Green.
