Taking Stock: Celtics – Heat

Taking Stock: Celtics – Heat

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters  Rajon Rondo:  The 20 points, 13 assists and 7 rebounds make for a spectacular line.  The aggressive moves to the rim to get easy (or relatively easy for him) were great.  He still had 4 turnovers and stretches [...]

Bigger punk: Rajon Rondo or Dwyane Wade?

Bigger punk: Rajon Rondo or Dwyane Wade?

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. “I got my kids watching so I stopped myself but it was a punk play by him,” said Wade, who had a team-best 29 points in the win. “He clotheslined [...]

Recap: Celtics leave defense in Boston for season opener

Recap: Celtics leave defense in Boston for season opener

I know it’s October, but I expected so much more from the Celtics. After all the talk about the Heat and Ray Allen, I expected the defensive intensity to be there. It wasn’t. And the Heat rolled 120-107. LeBron James had 26 points in 29 minutes. If he doesn’t sit out most of the 4th [...]

Enemy Chatter: The Celtics mess with your mind a little bit

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics.  Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Miami. “I expected that, when I heard [that the Heat are the Celtics’ target] from Doc, I know Doc very well, as well it should be; our focus is on Boston,” [...]

Sag off Rondo? You’re just giving him a head start

Sag off Rondo? You’re just giving him a head start

There’s a pervasive myth out there that you can sag off of Rajon Rondo and render him ineffective.  People will point to the Lakers as an example of how putting Kobe Bryant on Rondo and letting him roam is an effective strategy. But that’s overly simplistic, and doesn’t take into account other matchup issues, and [...]

Recap: Celtics end preseason with home loss

Recap: Celtics end preseason with home loss

Despite some nice play early on, and a promising burst at the beginning of the 2nd half, the C’s were inconsistent this evening. They fall at home to Philly 88-79. Turnovers were once again a problem as the Celtics had 7 of them before the end of the 1st quarter. The offense looked a bit [...]

After starting slow and sluggish, the Celtics used a 24-9 run to close out the first half and never looked back.  The Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire-less Knicks jumped out to a 28-15 first quarter lead against the KG and Paul Pierce-less Celtics and actually led by as many as 19.  Jeff Green led all [...]

Recap: Celtics remind Nets that they’re still the Nets

Recap: Celtics remind Nets that they’re still the Nets

The Brooklyn Nets wanted this game. We knew that when Avery Johnson rested his starters on Tuesday night. The new look Nets were on national television in their new arena against the Celtics. How did Brooklyn respond? They got steamrolled. The Celtics were aggressive on both ends of the floor and dominated this game from [...]

Recap: Pierce shines, Celtics lose to Nets scrubs

I lost a lot of interest in this preseason game once I learned that New Jersey Brooklyn would not play Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries and Brook Lopez – a group otherwise known as its starting five. Regardless of who was on the floor for New Brooklyn, I wanted to see the [...]
