Randolph’s emergence may help, not hurt, Chris Wilcox

Randolph’s emergence may help, not hurt, Chris Wilcox

With just a handful of games left, there’s a hyper-focus on who might get minutes when the playoffs begin.  Last night, Doc went with the big lineup he promised when he made Jeff Green a starter:  Avery Bradley, Paul Pierce, Green, Brandon Bass, and Kevin Garnett.  That moved Chris Wilcox to the bench, and created [...]

Video bomb: Lee, Green and Bradley have fun with KG

Video bomb: Lee, Green and Bradley have fun with KG

Gotta love the video bomb (except when it involves the Heat). Question – what is KG saying? “Y-G” … does that mean young guys, young guns or young gangstas? Or “Wise g’s” … which would be a reference to wise guys. I (the poster boy for the white, suburban soccer dad’s club) think it’s “Y-G” and [...]

Bradley’s defensive philosophy: don’t be afraid to be embarrassed

Bradley’s defensive philosophy: don’t be afraid to be embarrassed

Avery Bradley. “Zero Tolerance“ Avery Bradley’s defensive prowess is well-known throughout the NBA.  He often sets up shop inside opposing guards’ heads and throws them so far off their game, that the ripple effect can swing games in Boston’s favor. He also gets burned from time to time.  That’s going to happen in the NBA.  But when [...]

Recap: Knicks drop three-point barrage on Celtics

Recap: Knicks drop three-point barrage on Celtics

I knew this one was over when Raymon Felton nailed that 45-footer at the halftime buzzer. That triple was one of 14 three-pointers made by New York in tonight’s 108-89 win over the Celtics. As Doc always says, it’s a make or miss league. The Knicks (48% FG, 51% 3FG) made and the Celtics (43% [...]
