Your Morning Dump… Where the sky isn’t falling, I think

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.  Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

Uninspired and Unimpressive

The Celtics treated us to yet another uninspired and unimpressive performance. Fortunately, they still managed to beat the lowly Wizards, 99-88. The big story in the game – Paul Pierce's left foot. Pierce injured the foot during a loose ball scrum with Caron Butler in the 2nd quarter (photo). He returned after the half and... [More]

Ray’s days numbered?

Maybe its time to start considering life without Ray Allen.  The Celtics appear to be shopping him. The Celtics have initiated trade proposals on Allen, multiple league sources say, and Boston is searching for a younger, less expensive guard and an expiring contract. This way they can find a replacement for the 34-year-old Allen without... [More]

Thomsen: Blame the Big 3

We're complaining about a lot of things around here lately.  Rasheed Wallace is a disappointment… We've got a lot of injuries… the guys look disinterested.  There are those and a million more if you read through all the comments.  But SI's Ian Thomsen is taking a simpler approach: But any issue that doesn't involve Garnett,...

Enemy Chatter: Celtics didn’t want any part of crazy (expletive)…

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Los Angeles. Bryant looked at Artest in the locker room and recounted the start of the game, when the Lakers and Celtics were already jostling and trash-talking in... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where staying positive is not easy

Your Morning Dump… Where staying positive is not easy

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.  Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Losing stings, and for a Celtics fan, losing to the Lakers stings 10 times worse. Losing when the final score represents the only LA lead in the... [More]

How bad was the 4th quarter defense?

Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston and Doc Rivers have the answer: Boston led by 11 points with 9:17 remaining, and while its offense certainly downshifted, its typically unwavering defense did too. Maybe even more so. Of the 24 points the Lakers scored in the fourth quarter, a staggering 18 came in the paint. (How many... [More]

That was a kick in the balls…

Kobe Bryant (19 points, 8-20 FG) overcame a mediocre performance and drained a go-ahead jumper with 7 seconds left to beat the Celtics 90-89. Rajon Rondo played a brilliant game – 21 points, 12 assists, 5 rebounds. Doc inexplicably went without Rondo on the court for the final play. Had I drawn up the play,... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where this is a must win

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline.  Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “We’ve got to do a better job,” said Pierce, looking at poor performances against contenders. “We’ve got the Lakers coming in (today), so we feel like it’s...
