Recap: Pekovic, Wolves shred defenseless Celtics

Recap: Pekovic, Wolves shred defenseless Celtics

For the first time since they gave us Kevin Garnett, the Minnesota Timberwolves have beaten the Celtics.  They did it by feeding Nikola Pekovic early and often, and then feasting on the Celtics mistakes.  Wolves take it 110-100. The Celtics kept nipping and tucking and making it feel like they had a shot, but every [...]

Starters Offense:      Defense:      Overall: Like I said last night, The Wolves ran the same play 3 or 4 times in a row… a pick and roll with Ridnour… because Rondo got burned on it just about [...]

Recap: KG, Celtics control Wolves

Recap: KG, Celtics control Wolves

The Celtics started aggressively, but faded down the stretch of the second quarter to lull us all into believing we were in for another frustrating dog fight. But they took control of the game in the second half to push their lead up as high as 17 before settling for a 104-94 win.  The starters, [...]

Kevin Love opt-out coincides with end of Danny Ainge’s Phase II plan

Kevin Love opt-out coincides with end of Danny Ainge’s Phase II plan

Phase II of the new Big 3 era has yet to officially begin, but I’m already fascinated by potential roster moves at the end of the 2014-15 NBA season. Should the Celtics need a new big man to replace KG, Bass and Paul Pierce, look no further than Kevin Love: Timberwolves all-star forward Kevin Love [...]

Stiemsma wants to play for Minnesota

It’s not the biggest deal in the world, though I liked his shot blocking ability and I always thought he was an underrated shooter… but Greg Stiemsma’s agent says he wants to play in Minnesota.

Report: Timberwolves are interested in Ray

Report: Timberwolves are interested in Ray

Sources: TWolves are the heretofore unnamed dark-horse team in the Ray Allen Sweepstakes. Dark, though, as in jet-black. — Ric Bucher (@RicBucher) July 6, 2012 I don’t know about this one.  I know Bucher significantly couches this, but even if Minnesota wasn’t tied up in restricted free agent offer sheets, what are the odds that [...]

Wolves say Stiemsma is a good fit

Wolves say Stiemsma is a good fit

Remember that Greg Stiemsma is a restricted free-agent. The Celtics will have the opportunity to match any offer. Despite a talented roster that includes Kevin Love, Derrick Williams and Ricky Rubio, the Wolves are a bit thin at center. FYI – Jerry Zgoda is the Wolves beat reporter for the Star Tribune. [...]

Enemy Chatter: KG unleashed 34 minutes of hell

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 Minnesota.

Sherrod Blakely has an update on Ray Allen's ankle: "It feels good; it feels fine," Allen said. "I'll know a little better later on."

Vecsey: Celtics interested in Michael Beasley

In his column of garbage rumors, the NY Post's Peter Vecsey claims the Celtics have interest in Wolves forward Michael Beasely: The Lakers, also in dire need of a legitimate scoring threat at small forward, have genuine interest in Michael Beasley, but it’s doubtful they’ll use the $8.9 million trade exception (from Lamar Odom being [...]
