Garnett Schools Patrick O’Bryant

Patrick O'Bryant's name has come up a lot lately… and it hasn't been good. The Celtics need a 7 footer to come off the bench, and he's nowhere near ready to help. It's frustrating for us. And it's frustrating to Kevin Garnett too. Word from practice is that KG took POB aside after practice and... [More]

Feeling Good or Bad about 2009?

So PJ Brown is officially retired. I gotta admit – the news is ruining the buzz from my morning mimosas. I was really, really hoping he'd be wearing a Celtics uniform in March. And just when I started believing Dikembe Mutombo would help, he goes and signs with Houston. For weeks now I've been holding... [More]

A Lull… Or A Symptom

Seems like a lot of people have a similar reaction to last night's game.  As Chuck was writing the previous post, I was making the point on the Examiner that the "power play dunk" itself didn't cost the Celtics, but the way they handled it did. How many times in sports… all sports… have we... [More]

Not Mentally Tough Enough?

Turns out that horrible decision by the refs to allow Portland a basket even though they had 6 men on the court cost the Celtics the game. But not because the refs blew it, because the team couldn't move past it: "That was awful," Rivers said. "It absolutely had an affect on our guys. They... [More]

Blazer Beat Down

Portland absolutely manhandled the Celtics in the paint. Check the box score for the horrific rebounding numbers. There's no excuse for losing to the Blazers when Brandon Roy is sitting on the bench all night. And speaking of the bench, the Celtics subs were awful tonight. Box Score | Recap I'm not going to complain... [More]
