Semih Erden will be the starting center for the Boston Celtics tonight as Shaquille O’Neal did not make the trip to Washington.
Erden played big last night and will need to have another good showing as he has some big shoes to fill.
The pressure is now on Kevin Garnett to carry the rebounding load even more. Erden’s biggest opportunity to make an impact is on the glass and they need him to contribute. The Celtics are one of the worst rebounding teams in the league.
