You know after last week's Bog story about Jordan Crawford and his "steez" that we had to go with a fitting song. And what a perfect coincidence that the Wiz are playing the Celtics, from Boston, the same area where Gang Starr is from. So here is your game preview song:
Gang Starr - You Know My Steez
True this song was after the original group broke up, but Guru is from Mass, so he counts....So who will be the Wizards Guru?
Last week against the Celtics the "teacher" was the Steez man himself Jordan Crawford. J-Craw chill freshed his way to 21 points and along with Kevin Seraphin who shot 8 for 9 from the field, the two were the main reasons the Wizards had a chance to win it at the end.
Seraphin was a game-time decision, and he may not be at 100%, but his unique style of play and post game provides a challenge to the Celtics front court. I don't really know how he scores, but somehow his goofy play style and hooks find their way into the hoop.
Last Friday Paul Pierce led the way for the Celtics, and the way the Wizards play the 3 ball always seems to kill them. However this game I look for Rajon Rondo to step up his game. He was fairly quiet last matchup with 12 points and 12 assists. I don't expect him to repeat that performance facing the weak backcourt of AJ Price and Janero Pargo.
Also...will Bradley Beal show up? I think he is ready for a semi-breakout game...ready...but willing?
