Doc: Stick to the game plan

"We double-teamed three times and they scored all three times, when we were not supposed to double team," said Rivers. "Then dribble penetration. Jameer killed us off the dribble. We have to do a better job there." ESPN Boston: Practice report: Keep it going Seems pretty simple, really.  Get your heads out of your asses... [More]

Refs Doing A Good Job In Playoffs: Did Fans Help Make It Happen?

by DRJ With the single exception of Cavs game 3, the referees have been calling the Celtics' playoff games reasonably fairly. Oh, they make mistakes and always will, but on balance, there has been no evident bias (except that one time). Those of us who have suffered in the NBA long enough recognize how unusual... [More]

Dwight’s a child, the Celtics are men

I'm sort of borrowing from everywhere on this post.  The picture is from the always hilarious Doc Funk.  And the concept comes from Marcel Mutoni, who tweeted this during the game: Dwight is childish. Boston are a bunch of old, angry men. #youdothemath Dwight's halftime interview of himself is an example of his mentality.  The... [More]

Should we add Tony Allen to the banner?

At the beginning of the season, we decided to create a new banner for Red's Army.  It was a fun thing to do and include all of the guys on the team somehow. Well, all but one. I left Tony Allen out.  I honestly never expected him to become a contributor on this team.  But... [More]

Sheed: “A lot of them jump shots, the buttholes get tight.”

The Celtics’ frontline beat on Howard, yes, but they don’t let him get angles and they don’t require the guards to come and double Howard for them. They just keep their chests into him and challenge Howard to beat them with a back-to-the-basket game he doesn’t have down nearly as well as his dance steps.... [More]

Enemy Chatter: Questioning Van Gundy’s strategy

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 Orlando. Credit the Celtics for executing a great game plan throughout. I do think we have to call the Magic's strategy into question here. Over the last 3... [More]

Your Morning Dump… Where defense makes you look rusty

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. “No, I don’t think it had anything to do with [the layoff],” Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy said. “I think it had more to do with their...

Recap: Welcome to the playoffs, Orlando

The Celtics woke the Orlando Magic from their playoff slumber with a punch to the face. The Celtics played an impressive physical style of defense reminiscent of the 1980s. Rasheed Wallace (13 points, 2 rebounds) is my star of the game. He played fantastic defense against Dwight Howard (13 points on 3-10 FG). Kudos to... [More]
