Welcome to Tuesday, everyone!
It’s a Boston Celtics game night, which automatically makes it a little more interesting, right? RIGHT? That’s what I thought. Don’t give up on the Celtics now – they have so much more losing to do!
Of course, the way the Pacers have been playing lately, and with Rajon Rondo looking more and more like himself every game . . . no! They might win more games this season!
Okay – enough kidding around. Let’s move on to the daily links!
