Anatomy of a run: The Celtics take control in the 3rd

Anatomy of a run: The Celtics take control in the 3rd

Whether you want to believe Game 5 turned when Philly missed a chance to put up 4 points after clear path foul or when KG got called for an offensive foul on Spencer Hawes is up to you.  Those were consecutive plays that happened over the span of 19 seconds, so arguing over it is [...]

Enemy Chatter: It was all Rondo

Enemy Chatter: It was all Rondo

They were making [...]

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

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 [...]

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 [...]
