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

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 [...]

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Recap: Crappy effort, putrid execution dooms Celtics

Remember everything positive we said about the Celtics following the Game 1 victory? I guess it applies to Philadelphia now. The 76ers made the smart, clutch plays down the stretch to beat the Celtics 82-81 in Game 2. Spare me the bitching about the illegal screen whistle on Kevin Garnett with :10 remaining. While I'm [...]

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Gm 1 flashback: KG blocks Iguodala, Dooling finishes

Not sure what was the more spectacular play. KG blocking the high-flying Andre Iguodala from behind or Keyon Dooling finishing on the break. Can you name the top rated defensive player in the playoffs? It's Kevin Garnett (88.1 defensive rating). Rajon Rondo is fourth.  I believe there's an old saying… defense wins championships.   [...]

Enemy Chatter: Doug Collins responsible for Game 1 meltdown

Enemy Chatter: Doug Collins responsible for Game 1 meltdown

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 then the last string of plays to the game demonstrated just how lost he was. While Rajon Rondo was displaying his court awareness, Doug wasn't sure [...]

Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

Rondo’s “drop the mic” post game interview

The Celtics had just polished off the Sixers by dropping a beauty of a 4th quarter performance.  Rajon Rondo was fresh off a dominant quarter and the brilliant final :03 of the game.  And then TNT's David Aldridge caught him for this postgame interview. Boom.  Drop the mic. Leave the stage. This show is over. [...]

Recap: Celtics rip the hearts out of the Sixers

Recap: Celtics rip the hearts out of the Sixers

  I need a cigarette after the fourth quarter performance by the Boston Celtics.  I don't even know where to start.   Ok, I'll start with KG, the destroyer of men's souls.  29 points on 12-20 shooting, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks.  And if you thought Hawks Game 6 was a "turn back the clock [...]

Quick notes: Doc’s concerned, Pierce will play, Ray might not

Quick notes: Doc’s concerned, Pierce will play, Ray might not

The Celtics didn't practiced today, but they did gather for a shootaround.  I can't say I liked what I heard. Both Pierce and Allen sat out Friday's walkthrough, following a shootaround. Pressed as to whether Pierce or Allen were closer to being ready for Game 1, Rivers sounded an ominous tone.  "I don't [know]," he [...]

A quick appreciation of Kevin Garnett (and his complete Game 6 highlights)

A quick appreciation of Kevin Garnett (and his complete Game 6 highlights)

  I know I've said it before.  I've already admitted that writing Kevin Garnett off four months ago was stupid.  I guess after last night, I realized just how stupid it was.  Kevin Garnett is, was, and forever will be one of the most unique individuals on the planet.  His demeanor can be shocking, frightening, [...]
