Doc whacked for $25,000 for blasting refs

Doc whacked for $25,000 for blasting refs

When Doc Rivers said this after Game 2: “Listen, I thought the fouls on Kevin, first of all they were horrendous,” Rivers said after the Celtics fell in to a 2-0 hole in the best-of-seven series that shifts to Boston for Game 3 Friday. “And secondly, I thought they had a huge effect on us,” [...]

Jordan Crawford over Courtney Lee… justified or not?

Jordan Crawford over Courtney Lee… justified or not?

One of the questions I was most asked during Game 2 was some variation of “why is Doc going with Jordan Crawford over Courtney Lee?”  Here’s Doc’s reasoning:  Rivers was asked Wednesday about his preference of Crawford over Lee, and he said he simply thinks Crawford is playing better than Lee right now. “Yeah, it’s [...]

Hip pointer won’t keep KG out of Game 3

Doc Rivers says Kevin Garnett suffered a hip pointer in Game 2 against the Knicks. See the video evidence above. The injury will not prevent KG from practicing or playing in Game 3. Shocking. As for why Jordan Crawford is playing significant minutes over Courtney Lee, Doc said: “I think offensively he gives you a [...]

Flip Flopping Crazy: Doc is in a foul mood about Game 2 officiating

Flip Flopping Crazy: Doc is in a foul mood about Game 2 officiating

Let’s be clear about this right off the top: By no means am I citing the officiating as the main reason as to why the Celtics lost Game 2 to the Knicks. Did it hurt the game plan when KG got into early foul trouble in the first and second quarters?  Without a doubt. But [...]

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.

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

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 [...]
