Bad news comes in threes...

Written by: Tyler Mudrick

Well they've always said bad news travels in threes. I was hoping it wouldn't be the case for the Celtics in this postseason. First we heard that Garnett was probably out for the entire postseason and will likely need surgery. That hurt the teams physical approach to the game, as well as their mental states.

Next, Danny Ainge's heart attack news shuffled up the team emotions. Thank fully he is making an ok recovery and is doing well.

Now comes bad news number three. We've been hit with dagger to the bench which needs a much needed booster after the poor performances in the first two games of the postseason. Yes ladies and gentlemen, Leon Powe is also out for the post season.

Last night Powe left the game with some sort of knee injury. After an MRI, today, he was diagnosed with a torn ACL and meniscus. Not good folks, not good. Just when we thought the bench couldn't perform any worse, possibly our biggest spark plug is now out for the rest of the year. This leaves us with a huge gap in the big man department. Will a rotation of Perkins, Mikki Moore, and Big Baby be enough to ride us through the post season? What happens when we get hit into foul trouble? Will Scal be put back onto the bench or is his injury to severe too?

Its going to be a tough ride for the C's without Garnett and Powe. Let's see if they have the heart to compete and defend their title.
