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 [...]

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

Doc admits C’s should have gone to Bass more

A lot readers said it. A lot of people during the game were tweeting it.   Why wasn't Brandon Bass in the game down the stretch?  At the time, it appeared Doc was riding his recent small-lineup success to try to generate defensive stops and kick-start a stalled offense with some transition basketball.  But in [...]

Enemy Chatter: The stench of Boston’s cockiness

Enemy Chatter: The stench of Boston’s cockiness

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. Repeated from Twitter: "Here's the thing. The Sixers are a bad team. Philadelphia knows that. The Celtics are also a bad team. Boston does not. Entitled so hard." [...]

Recap: The Celtics refused to win this game

Recap: The Celtics refused to win this game

Eighteen point leads are never safe in the NBA, especially when held by the Celtics. Aided by a 76ers team that couldn't shoot straight, the Celtics led by 15 in the 1st quarter, 15 at the half, and 18 early in the 3rd quarter. But in typical Celtics fashion, the C's eased up and gave [...]

Doc: The series isn’t over

Doc: The series isn’t over

Game 2 gave people a little pause as they wondered if the inevitable Celtics-Heat matchup would get derailed by injuries and apathy that were worse than we thought.  After last night, most people went back to outright dismissing Philly's chances of advancing, citing the Celtics ability to flip a switch and dominate when needed. Today, [...]

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

Enemy Chatter: Nobody put Pierce or Rondo on the ground

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. Really disappointed that nobody put Rondo or Pierce on the ground when they were out there throwing behind the back passes and taking 24 footers when the [...]

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Recap: Celtics dominate, bring Philly back to reality

Can a sprained MCL heal in 48 hours? An uber-aggressive and healthy looking Paul Pierce dropped 24 points and 12 rebounds in Philadelphia as the Celtics dominated Game 3, 107-91. Kevin Garnett continued his dominance: 27 points, 13 rebounds in 30 minutes. Philly has no one who can guard this man consistently.  Rajon Rondo (23 [...]

Did the Celtics try too hard to get Brandon Bass going?

Did the Celtics try too hard to get Brandon Bass going?

There is no doubt about it… Brandon Bass is struggling.   There's also no doubt about this… getting the Brandon Bass that played for the Celtics in the regular season would be a HUGE help for the Celtics.  I know it.  You know it.  The Celtics know it.  So when Brandon Bass hit 3 of [...]

Enemy Chatter: Lavoy Allen neutralized Kevin Garnett

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Getty Images I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Philadelphia. And finally, Lavoy Allen. I clearly timed my post yesterday around this breakout performance. He played 30 minutes of super-solid basketball, looking more [...]
