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 [...]

Pietrus’ concussion still in his head

Pietrus’ concussion still in his head

Mickael Pietrus can make life easy for the Celtics.  He can come in, play some nice defense, hit a shot or two, and even drive to the basket when defenses over-commit to the jumper.  We saw SOME of the driving last night, but that's not going to happen very often, because Mickael Pietrus is afraid [...]

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc wasn’t fond of the foul call

Your Morning Dump… Where Doc wasn’t fond of the foul call

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. No one can argue that Garnett did, in fact, clear out Andre Iguodala with his arm in an attempt to get Paul Piercefor a potential game-tying 3-pointer. The issue is [...]

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.   [...]

Things breaking C’s way? Bosh out indefinitely

Things breaking C’s way? Bosh out indefinitely

  The Celtics played the Hawks, who didn't have Al Horford or Zaza Pachulia and then saw Josh Smith limited by a knee strain.  They were set to face the winner of the Bulls-76'ers series, and the Bulls lost Derrick Rose to an ACL injury and Joakim Noah to an ankle injury.  Now they face [...]

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 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Doug Collins is willing to let KG beat him

Your Morning Dump… Doug Collins is willing to let KG beat him

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. In the Celtics’ 92-91 win in Game 1 on Saturday night, Garnett provided a lethal dose of jumpers. Garnett had 29 points on 12-of-20 shooting, including 6-of-9 [...]
