Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

In an effort to maximize Allen’s on-court production, the Celtics had previously limited his offday (and even day-of-game) activity. But one day after debating whether to potentially sit Allen in Game 2, the Celtics essentially went in the complete opposite direction and told Allen to go back to his shot-heavy routine in hopes of sparking [...]

What to do with Ray Allen

What to do with Ray Allen

Here we are again.  Ray Allen's ankle is a mess and the injury is permeating his entire game.  He can't cut, he can barely shoot, he's routinely beaten off the dribble.  It's bad. Yet…. There he was, valiantly doing other things to help the team as best he could.  He grabbed 5 rebounds (2 offensive) [...]

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

I probably could have written this post before the last game, but here goes: Bradley traveled with the team, but appeared dejected at this morning's shootaround, and he did not participate. He wouldn't commit to playing in a Game 7 or a potential next series. "I don't think I'll be able to play tonight," Bradley [...]

Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

This is just great.  Somehow Bradley's right shoulder has become an issue as well.  The left shoulder is so bad that it practically pops in and out in a strong breeze. Remember when we speculated about the possibility of him needing surgery?  Yeah, that's going to happen this offseason.  He'll be the third Celtic in [...]

You don't score more than 25,000 points in the NBA if you get sensitive about a couple of missed shots.  So it's no real shock (but still awesome to hear) Paul Pierce say this when he was asked about getting out of a slump: I don't never think I'm in a slump. I really don't [...]
