You may have noticed that we are not big around here on the whole following other teams or stuff like that. Tonight's TNT match up with Boston and Orlando however is too compelling to ignore.
Dwight is a beast among monsters and with Jameer Nelson playing like Rajon Rondo the Magic are finally something I can believe in (which will surely curse them to doom).
The Celtic's on the other hand might still be a fairly decent team as we Suns fans saw first hand the other night.
BDL's Kelly Dwyer describes them this way:
Boston played last night in Miami, but this team's dogged pursuit of doggedness often tends to overcome weary legs.
Don't you wish your team was described that way Suns fans?
