Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics have really learned nothing at all

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 had no focus, so I thought we deserved to lose,” Rivers said. “The bank shot that Gallinari hit was the basketball gods punishing us for not...

T-Mobile Recap: The Celtics couldn’t care less

If the Celtics are going to finish the regular season with efforts like this one, Doc might as well sit the starters. And please let us fans know, so we don't subject ourselves to this garbage.
