Doc is hurtin’ too

Doc is hurtin’ too

The Herald’s Steve Bulpett has an injury update on… Doc Rivers? Rivers told the Herald he has been diagnosed with a herniated disc and that he took an epidural to relieve the pain. “It’s been going on for about four weeks,” he said. “I think it was in Game 4 or 5 against Philly that [...]

Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

Shootaround: Ray Allen is not taking it easy

In an effort to maximize Allen’s on-court production, the Celtics had previously limited his offday (and even day-of-game) activity. But one day after debating whether to potentially sit Allen in Game 2, the Celtics essentially went in the complete opposite direction and told Allen to go back to his shot-heavy routine in hopes of sparking [...]

What to do with Ray Allen

What to do with Ray Allen

Here we are again.  Ray Allen's ankle is a mess and the injury is permeating his entire game.  He can't cut, he can barely shoot, he's routinely beaten off the dribble.  It's bad. Yet…. There he was, valiantly doing other things to help the team as best he could.  He grabbed 5 rebounds (2 offensive) [...]

Shootaround notes: Pietrus to stay on the bench

Via ESPN Boston's Chris Forsberg: With Ray Allen still fighting through right ankle woes, there's a line of thought that suggests maybe Boston would be better off utilizing more Mickael Pietrus this round in order to beef up defense against Dwyane Wade. Rivers shot down the notion heading into Game 1.  "No, we’re going to stay the way we are," [...]

Report: Orlando wants Doc Rivers

Report: Orlando wants Doc Rivers

ESPN's Chris Broussard says the Orlando Magic want Doc Rivers: The mere mention of Shaq, even if he turns out to be something more than a courtesy candidate, surely (and sadly) overshadows the most interesting part of Broussard's notebook-on-TV report, which revealed that the Magic's secret dream is trying to find a way to convince [...]

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

Bradley probably won’t play, Ray probably will

I probably could have written this post before the last game, but here goes: Bradley traveled with the team, but appeared dejected at this morning's shootaround, and he did not participate. He wouldn't commit to playing in a Game 7 or a potential next series. "I don't think I'll be able to play tonight," Bradley [...]

How to spring KG to get good looks

How to spring KG to get good looks

Kevin Garnett is the key to winning this series.  When he gets the ball in a good position and gets good, open shots.. the Celtics do extremely well.  KG has had some problems establishing the post against Lavoy Allen.  The kid is strong and he has had some success pushing KG out of his comfort [...]
