1) Stay out of foul trouble. If the Celtics are going to win game 6, it’s going to be in a close game — and they are going to need to be able to play free.
2) Establish Paul Pierce as a scorer early. If I was Doc, I’d tell him to go out super aggressive ala game 5. If he’s scoring, he opens up opportunities for everybody else.
3) Do what you’ve been doing on Kobe Bryant — make it tough as hell for him. If he’s going to beat you, he better be making high-degree of difficulty shots.
4) Try to get an early lead — make ’em panic by putting their back up against the wall.
If the Celts can do this (a tall order), #18 will be in the books.
