Lost wages and gained knowledge in the epicenter of the basketball universe

Lost wages and gained knowledge in the epicenter of the basketball universe

I'm back in Boston after a week in Vegas that spanned the end of Summer League, the beginning of USA Basketball's mini-camp, and the decimation of my bank account at the blackjack tables. Let's start with the most important lesson of the week.  When a dealer draws a 2, get ready to get your nuts [...]

T-Mobile Recap: Blowout

T-Mobile Recap: Blowout

A blowout win… over a bad team… at home. That's not something we see everyday by the Celtics. Fortunately, we got to see it tonight, 122-103 over the Pacers. So what was the big difference between tonight's victory and Wednesday night's debacle? Two reasons. 1-The Pacers are awful. 2-The Celtics played hard. The Celtics broke [...]

Enemy Chatter: “They have 3 All-Stars… we don’t have any.”

Enemy Chatter: “They have 3 All-Stars… we don’t have any.”

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 Indiana.. Another blown lead. Another loss. Take from this one what you want. At least the team didn't get blown to smithereens in the confines of one of [...]

When 2 Quarters of Defense is Enough

When 2 Quarters of Defense is Enough

I'm not sure what Doc Rivers told the troops at halftime, but it clearly worked. Down 15 at the half, the Celtics clamped down defensively in the 3rd and 4th quarters and beat the Pacers, 103-94. Abysmal. Atrocious. Wretched. Putrid. Any of those words appropriately describe the Celtics play in the first half. Pacers PG [...]

Your Morning Dump… where maybe we overreacted a little

Your Morning Dump… where maybe we overreacted a little

“These past two games, I think have been teaching points for us. I can speak for myself as a starter, [we’d] been blowing teams out, so in the fourth quarter we’ve been sitting on the bench. So I think it’s good for us to go through these fourth quarters where we’re down 6. We’ve got [...]

The Morning Dump… Joey Crawford Has A Huge Ego

The Morning Dump… Joey Crawford Has A Huge Ego

He called two technicals in 21 seconds in a critical fourth-quarter stretch. The first was on Kendrick Perkins for keeping his hands raised high after being whistled for a foul on Granger. Crawford struck again with 6:45 left when he called one on Celtics coach Doc Rivers for waving his hand in disgust following a [...]
