Avery Bradley out tonight as BOTH shoulders now an issue

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 [...]

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

Paul Pierce doesn’t know what a slump is, even with his knee at 20%

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 [...]

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Bradley sits out shoot-around

Avery Bradley left Game 4 with the Celtics up 16 in the third.  Over the next nine minutes, the Sixers scored 25 points.   That's an over-simplfication of Bradley's effect on the team.  But it's pretty obvious that Avery Bradley has become a critical part of not only the Celtics defense, but the Celtics offense.  [...]

Pietrus’ concussion still in his head

Pietrus’ concussion still in his head

Mickael Pietrus can make life easy for the Celtics.  He can come in, play some nice defense, hit a shot or two, and even drive to the basket when defenses over-commit to the jumper.  We saw SOME of the driving last night, but that's not going to happen very often, because Mickael Pietrus is afraid [...]

Ray’s ankle continues to be a big problem

Ray’s ankle continues to be a big problem

  We'll go back to the big smiles and back slaps as the C's get ready for Philly in a minute.  But first… a serious note about Ray Allen's ankle, which is slowly failing him more than it's helping him.  And the more it fails him, the less confidence he has on the court, which [...]
