Red's Army

What do Devin Harris, Donny Marshall & Reds Army Have in Common?

The answer? We understand how important Marquis Daniels will be to this Celtics team. Even though we were skeptical of his point guard skills, John and I recognized the importance of having a quality player, a guy who could start for many teams in the league, backing up Paul Pierce and Ray Allen.

A case of love and hate

The alarm clock might as well be a sledgehammer at 6 am the morning after a Celtics/Red Sox/Patriots marathon day.  But I know I'm not alone.  A lot of us went from watching the C's (and then the last inning of the Red Sox season) to watching football the rest of the afternoon.  Including everyone...

Get up Rajon!

Cool video and pic from today’s game.  Git on up Rajon! I think we saw some flashes from Rondo today.  Now if only he can get back to blogging… or get on Twitter or something… I’ll be happy. Click on photo for full size. Photo courtesy Getty Images... [More]

The Truth comes alive

This preseason has been all about Kevin Garnett getting back in shape, Rasheed Wallace and Marquis Daniels fitting in, and Kendrick Perkins showing signs of taking another step in his progression. Today, it became about Paul Pierce reminding everyone he he's still the man. Pierce went off for 25 points in 29 minutes.  He was... [More]

Sheed: “I Think We Can Get That Bulls Record…”

Via Tom Halzack in the Connecticut Post: Rasheed Wallace… Oh definitely. Definitely, playing with those three other guys, also combining that with the guys we have on the bench, I think we can definitely can. Me personally, I think we can get that Bulls record. You know we have the talent for it. We have... [More]

Perk: The most effective player so far

I must have said it a dozen times at the game Friday night:  "Perk is our most effective player on the floor."  In 20 minutes, he put up 14 points on 5 of 7 shooting and 7 rebounds.  He took advantage of smaller defenders, he powered past weaker ones, and didn't do it at the... [More]

“‘I feel like a rookie”

We've had more than a few conversations about Marquis Daniels around here.  My (and many others') take has been that he's this year's equivalent of the James Posey signing… a versatile guy who plays defense and provides a spark off the bench. But Marquis, and the other new guys on the team, seem to be... [More]

The Week in Review

We learned a lot this week, starting with the fact that Kevin Garnett can play basketball without a limp. We saw a slim-and-trim Kendrick Perkins and deemed this good for his game. It took us 10 minutes of watching Marquis Daniels to realize he can play the point. You can hear all of this analysis... [More]

Bombs Away

The Celtics and Knicks played some wretched basketball last night at the Garden. Forgive me for bailing at halftime, but I had to watch the Red Sox hit weak groundballs all over Angels stadium. Rasheed Wallace's stat line is the one thing that stands out in the box score: 13 points, 5-12 FG, 3-9 3... [More]

What's uglier? Amy Winehouse or the basketball being played at the Garden right now? I know it's only the second preseason game, but I am disappointed with the Celtics level of play. We heard nothing but rave reviews from Doc and the guys during training camp, yet they've opened the preseason with 6 quarters of... [More]
