CATCHING THEIR BREATH
Day, Flip Saunders cancelled practice. He didn't want
them to expend any more energy before heading to
Boston Tuesday afternoon for Game 5 Wednesday night.
They'll watch some film when they get there, then have
a shootaround Wednesday morning.
"We weren't going to do much today anyway," Saunders
It should benefit Antonio McDyess, Jason Maxiell,
Tayshaun Prince and Chauncey Billups the most. McDyess
and Maxiell had to be drained physically after
guarding Kevin Garnett and pounding the boards along
with being the two offensive stars in the game.
Prince's shooting has declined the last two games, in
part because he's focused on limiting Paul Pierce.
Billups looked a lot better physically in Game 4 than
he did two nights earlier, though he still didn't
shoot well. Any extra time he gets to rest his sore
hamstring is welcome.
