Cs Eye Game 2 Redemption

1 @ 0 Monday, April 20, 2009 7:00 pm ET TD BankNorth Garden (Boston, MA) The Celtics didn't begin the 2009 NBA Playoffs as well as they would've liked. Granted, Game 1 was extremely intense and showcased a marvelous head-to-head battle from point guards Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo, but you never want to allow... [More]

Is KG Scared?

Anyone who listened to WEEI this morning got an annoying dose of Michael Felger and Jon Metaparel questioning KG's threshold for pain. They insinuated that Garnett might be  scared to play on the injured knee because of the fear of further injury. He's been relatively healthy his entire career and never had to play through...

Just Do What You Do

It's a very simple message to the Celtics if they're going to shut everyone up and get back on track. Aside from Rondo cutting back on the gambling on Derrick Rose (something he admits to) there's no special defense to play on the Bulls rookie.  Just make the rotations.  Play defense like you're used to...

Is KG Teasing Us, Or What?

The Herald has this little tidbit from today: Just a short time ago, Garnett walked onto the Celtic practice floor with strength coach Bryan Doo. While trainer Ed Lacerte sat at the far end of the court, Garnett, in practice gear, dribbled as he walked around the perimeter of the court. The entire visible process... [More]

“I should have played him more”

That's what Doc said about Stephon Marbury after practice today. “Steph’s going to be fine. He should have been more aggressive but I should have played him more,” Rivers said after practice on Sunday. “I don’t think I played Steph enough last night to get him going. I thought in the first half the second... [More]

Tough Talk

Kendrick Perkins had this to say about Derrick Rose: "He'll never have another game like that against us again." I wanna believe Perk. But after watching (or in my case – listening) to the C's come out inexplicably flat in the home opener of a playoff series, I'm not sure what to believe. Hey Perk:... [More]

These Are Shank’s Glory Days

He's like the mother that finds that one line that pisses you off at every family dinner.  You know the one… "if you had just gone to law school like I said, you wouldn't be wasting all that time on the internet".  Or something like that. It cuts through you.  You walk in knowing its... [More]

Epic Battle

It was an epic battle of the point guards today. Derrick Rose shut me, and all my talk about a rookie wilting in the spotlight, up with 36 points and 11 assists in 50 minutes.  Rajon Rondo had 29 points, 9 rebounds and 7 assists… but other than that, the Celtics flat out sucked offensively,...
