Tonight, the Celtics will look to even up their series with the Knicks when they play what could be their final game at the TD Garden this season. The Celtics have been in complete control in these last two games, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. Right now, the Celtics are the better team. They have more experience and more momentum. I'll be shocked if they drop this one. Here are tonight's five things: 5. ONLY PLAY THE SEVEN GUYS: On Wednesday, the Celtics only played seven guys the whole game. That strategy is a genius one that I want to see used again. If they do do that, they will win this game easily. 4. KEEP LETTING TERRY SHOOT THREES: In Game Five, Jason Terry scored a productive seventeen points on six-of-sixteen shooting. 15 of those points came on three pointers. If he's making them, let him take more. 3. CUT BACK ON PIERCE'S SHOT AMOUNT: In New York, Paul Pierce scored a nice 16 points on 6/19 shooting. The 16 points sounds good, but not the thirteen missed shots. He needs to pass the ball just a little more. 2. MORE SHOTS FOR GREEN: While Jeff Green did lead the Celtics with 18 points on Wednesday, he only shot the ball 8 times. So imagine what he could do with 20 shot opportunities. He'd probably put up Lebron-like numbers. 1. LEAD AT HALFTIME: The team that leads at halftime obviously has a better chance of winning than the team that trails. If the Celtics can get any lead halftime, even if it's just 1 point, they will have a huge advantage in the second half against a very nervous Knicks team. Tip-off for this one will be at 7:00 pm ET. You can see it on CSN-NE and ESPN.
