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.

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

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 [...]
