Jeff Green wants to do it all

“I’ve just got to do it,” Green said before the team’s morning shootaround at Madison Square Garden. “I’ve just go to play through the fatigue. I’ve got to continue to look for mine, basically. There’s no excuses now. I want to be out there, I want to compete. I want to play against the best, [...]

Someone gave Jordan Crawford a 6th Man vote

Someone gave Jordan Crawford a 6th Man vote

‘Tis the season where NBA awards voters make ridiculous decisions, causing the bloggeratti to suffer strokes while screaming for transparency in the voting process.  This happens every year, without fail, in at least some, and very often all awards. I don’t get AS worked up about it as some people, but I get it. These [...]

Celtics need to pick up the pace in Game 2

Celtics need to pick up the pace in Game 2

How can the Celtics eliminate some of their sloppy turnovers in half-court sets? By staying out of half-court sets: “Some of those easy opportunities have to come in transition,” said Pierce. “Kicking the ball ahead to myself, Jeff [Green] is something we want to emphasize. We feel like if we can get the ball up [...]

Doc still making excuses for Terry’s poor play

Doc still making excuses for Terry’s poor play

Jason Terry dropped a giant goose egg (0 points, 0-5 FG) in Saturday’s loss to NY. As usual, Doc Rivers took the blame: Even after 35-year-old Terry went scoreless on Saturday — the first time he’s been held without points in a playoff appearance — Rivers offered a vote of confidence for the veteran guard. [...]

Celtics can’t just stand and watch Pierce try to fly this bucket of bolts

Celtics can’t just stand and watch Pierce try to fly this bucket of bolts

The script wasn’t supposed to go like this. Jeff Green and Avery Bradley weren’t supposed to lead the Celtics into the locker room as the team’s two leading scorers at halftime yesterday.  They were supposed to be the sidebar to the main feature:  Paul Pierce eating up the Madison Square Garden hate and spitting it [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics dig themselves a Game 1 series hole

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics dig themselves a Game 1 series hole

  Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Their second-half execution was deplorable, ruining a brilliant defensive performance that turned the Knicks into exactly what the Celtics wanted — a one-man team led by [...]

Boston Should Look to Sports for Comfort

Boston Should Look to Sports for Comfort

Wednesday’s game between the Boston Bruins and Buffalo Sabres began like any other night at the TD Garden. Players from both teams lined up in unison as Rene Rancourt made his way onto the ice for his rendition of the National Anthem. At a moment’s notice, the sellout crowd stood at full attention. As Rancourt [...]

The Celtics are going to make The Scoring Champ work for it

In his weekly appearance on WEEI, Doc Rivers spoke about the Celtics defensive approach to Carmelo Anthony, aka The 2013 NBA Scoring Champion, and momentum: On stopping Anthony: “We do have to limit the other guys, but I don’t subscribe to the theory that he’s going to get what he’s going to get. He may [...]

ESPN to the Celtics: “You can’t win!”

ESPN to the Celtics: “You can’t win!”

No surprises here. Heck, I’m not even sure the Celtics can beat New York. The Knicks in 5 is a straight slap in the face. Kinda like your woman saying you have no shot of winning the biggest fight of your life. I’m so ready for this series. [...]

Kevin Garnett: “Not every city is like this”

In a recent sit down interview with Greg Dickerson, Kevin Garnett discussed “the chant” from Game 6.  Part of what he said is in the headline.  Here’s more: “It’s like someone told me at the gas station, ‘I’m a Celtic too.  This is my team, I was raised with this team,’ that’s pretty much what [...]
